KRS-One & Buckshot Plan Joint Album

Independent label Duck Down Records confirmed today that they have officially added legendary Bronx rapper KRS-One to their growing roster of artists. While XXLMAG.com reported the deal back in August, they have now clarified that KRS will be releasing an unnamed collaborative album with Black Moon front man Buckshot later this year. In a statement, Duck Down Co-President Dru Ha explained that their connection to KRS goes back many years —the label’s name is actually taken from a 1992 BDP song title, and Black Moon sampled KRS’ voice on “How Many MC’s,” one of the group’s earliest hits. “It’s a dream to be able to work with KRS-One,” says Buckshot. “Before I even began rapping, that is who I checked for. I kept the Blueprint album on me at all times. That is all I listened to for an entire summer.”

Duck Down also announced that they recently signed veteran DJ/producer DJ Revolution. The California native is best known for his work on the world famous Wake Up Show on Power 106, and also as a producer for artists like KRS, Dilated Peoples, Smif N Wessun, Crooked I and Slum Village. He is currently preparing his Duck Down debut King of The Decks, which will be released this fall. The project is expected to feature appearances from Bishop Lamont, Sean Price, Kidz In The Hall, Guilty Simpson, Alchemist and many more.

In related news, Duck Down is planning a Sound Clash with fellow indie powerhouse Stones Throw at the upcoming South By Southwest Music Conference. On March 12 in Austin, TX, both labels will descend on The Habana Annex for a free showcase. On the Duck Down side, Sean Price, Buckshot, Kidz In The Hall and DJ Mister Nash are expected to perform, while Guilty Simpson, Percee P and DJ Rhettmatic will be representing for Stones Throw.

      A lot of people care. KRS One is from my childhood. And Buckshot is the rapper that sparked the east coast in the early 90′s.

      Both of these guys showed my generation (born in the late 70′s) how to rap!

      I agree both of em don’t mean anything to 80′s and 90′s babies.

  • Aflie45

    Oh my god, these two are the most pathetic rappers in the history of hip-hop.

    KRS-1 Washed-up, 50 Cent -ass licking, broke loser, who never had any success, and raps about the same thing in every song.

    Buckshot – Nobody, who will always be a nobody, doesn’t have any skill or talent.

    • Jeebus

      Either cats are smoking that sh**, or under the age of 18. Clearly, either way “You Must Learn”. KRS One and Buckshot are easily two of your favorite rapper’s favorite rappers.

      Show some g****mn respect for the legends that made it possible for whoever you check for to make it in the game. I’m no big fan of 50 either, but he’s hardly BROKE.

      BTW, stop d**kriding Wayne. Yeah, he’s good, but he’s not the “greatest” like you proclaim. Wait another 10 years before that comparison is even plausible.

  • Fireforreal

    I still feel KRS but I’m not a buckshot fan,but he always has dope beats so it should be intresting.

  • Trickdd

    KRS ONE AIN’T NO LIL WAYNE SO STOP TALKING ABOUT KRS ONE BECAUSE HE JUST LIKE BUCKSHOT AND EVEN JIGGA CAN’T TOUCH MY MAN LIL WAYNE THE REAL BEST RAP OF ALL TIMES.

    • Anti-Mainstream

      Trickdd-Weezy’s the most overrated rapper alive! His rhymes are simple as fuck plus you can’t understand half the bullshit he says! If you hate Krs so much why the fuck does your wack-ass keep reading and commenting on all his articles? Krs is and always will be one of the top five greatest emcees of all time, and has numerous classic albums while wackass Lil wayne has been in the game for 14 years and STILL don’t have one classic album under his belt. He sucks! Krs is still #1 kids I hate to tell you!!! He’s still rhymin nicer, and with more substance then anybody today!

  • Stealth
