KRS-One Interview

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

When the teacha talks, you listen. KRS-One stopped by Take It Personal to discuss, well, everything. This isn’t just our best interview, it’s our most favorite! KRS-One is not one to shy away from any topic, so we covered his beef with MC Shan, politics, working with R.E.M., Ced Gee’s involvement on Criminal Minded, working with DJ Premier again, his musical influence, his fame and he even laced us with an off-the-top freestyle. Don’t forget to check out the full tribute episode if you haven’t already. It contains countless classics, unreleased gems, remixes and stellar guest spots. This interview is so good, by the time that 60 minutes is up, I’m certain you’ll be wanting more Blastmaster.

MC Shan vs. Marley Marl

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Shan sets the record straight on why he wasn’t on The Symphony. Marley’s response is below but he ain’t saying nothing really to dispute what Shan said. All I know is, Marley has had way too many shady dealings following him throughout his career. Not giving credit. Not paying artists. He is a legend so most people don’t care, but I bet K-Def has stories for days too. –Philaflava

MC Shan – Feed The World (1985)

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

“You got dropped off MCA cause the rhymes you wrote was wack…” KRS-One

Here’s MC Shan debut record on MCA Records in 1985. This is Shan’s first and only major-label release. Marley Marl is the producer. MC Shan would later get dropped from the label. KRS-One mentiones it when he disses Shan on BDP’s “South Bronx”.

This was ripped directly from my vinyl, I haven’t seen it on any blogs even though it’s actually a collectible record!

Cold Chillin’ on Christmas

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

First I would like to say Merry Christmas to all T.R.O.Y. Blog readers!

Now here’s a rare posse cut by the Juice Crew that was released in 1988. As Cold Chillin’ was distributed by Warner Bros. Records, they were given a spot on Warner Bros’ Christmas Compilation “Winter Warnerland“. The record featured Big Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shante, MC Shan, & Fly Ty(yes, Fly Ty). Kane drops two verses while Shante, Shan, & Ty only rhymed once. Funny thing about this record is that everybody from “The Symphony” is missing except for Kane. It’s still a great track though!

MC Shan is Livin’ Large

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

Almost everyone from the Juice Crew switched label in the early 90’s. MC Shan went to Livin’ Large Records just like Roxanne Shante. He first released “Hip Hop Roughneck” with the b-side “Watchin’ My Style” in 1993. I really liked the instrumental that they used for it; it’s probably going to make your head nod. Next he released his second single “Penile Reunion“; a posse cut with Kool G Rap, Neek the Exotic, Diesel, and Snow. It was produced by Kool G Rap and The Large Professor. The B-side “Don’t Call It a Comeback” is produced by Mister Cee and it contains scratches by DJ Scratch.

I also have the CD Single for both of these releases so it’s probably the best quality you will ever get them in.
