KRS-One returns to Orlando to exhibit hip-hop excellence at the Abbey

Hip-hop scholar and innovator KRS-One hasn’t played Orlando for a few years now, but 2020 is starting musically strong with the MC delivering a masterclass in rap. KRS-One has been at it since the late 1980s, when his project Boogie Down Productions released the still-untouchable Criminal Minded, and from then on it’s been a neverending stream of unforgettable anthems – “Sound of da Police,” “South Bronx” – and audacious moves – collaborating with REM, penning the weighty The Gospel of Hip-Hop, lecturing at colleges like Virginia State University and Sacramento State – and there’s still more to come from KRS-One. This show will most likely sell out, so we recommend you buy your tickets early.
