KRS-One & Buckshot Show Off Survival Skills On Joint LP

Hip-Hop veterans KRS-One and Buckshot are set to release their collaborative album Survival Skills this September.

When asked how the two New York mainstays linked up, KRS, who recently signed to Buckshot’s Duck Down label, said the two were always fans of one another’s work.

“Ever since 1993 we’ve been passing each other on tour or in the studio saying, one day we should tour together, or one day we should do a record together,” KRS said in a press release. “Well finally myself and Buckshot have the chance to collaborate on a straight up and down MC’in project.”

The New York natives have recruited a wide range of guest appearances for the disc, including Mary J. Blige, Talib Kweli, K’Naan, Immortal Technique, Slug of Atmosphere and label mates Heltah Skeltah and Smif-N-Wessun. Havoc of Mobb Deep, 9th Wonder, Black Milk, Nottz, Marco Polo Ill Mind and Khrysis, are among the producers handling the album’s sounds.

KRS and Buskshot are currently on tour as a part of this year’s Rock the Bells roster.
