KRS One Continues to Defend Afrika Bambaataa


Earlier this year Bronx rapper KRS One shocked fans by defending Hip Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaata after several men came forward claiming they had been sexually molested by Bambaataa as teens [click here if you missed that].

KRS One ups the ante telling Bambaataa critics they should quit Hip Hop...

In a sit down with a British Hip Hop panel KRS One explains,
“When you’re talking about Afrika Bambaataa, first of all, you’re talking about the person who invented hip-hop. Not participated in it. There was no hip-hop before Afrika Bambaataa. Let’s start there. So anyone who has a problem with Afrika Bambaataa should quit hip-hop.”
“You don’t take accusations lightly. I would say unequivocally right here, right now, I hope for healing. As I wrote in my statement, I hope for healing for everyone involved. First for those who are accusing Afrika Bambaataa. Accusing. No evidence, no convictions. OK, but we will at least give you the benefit of the doubt. You made these accusations against Afrika Bambaataa. OK, no problem. Bam, deal with that.”

if he's taking up for him, that means he must be a child molester as well....come with hard core proof, or go home.

afrikka bambata wasnt a malcolmX or somebody who spoke out against injustices, so there would be no legitimate reason to accuse him of child molestation...HE DID IT PERIOD!!

I thought DJ Kool Herc invented Hip Hop. I call BS on what he's saying.

Krs one is a idiot it doesn't matter who created anything this man molested kids which makes him sick and anyone who supports a person like that is sick too

I used to ride with KRS1 until he jumped on the late Prince B from PM Dawn because he was too pop. I realized he wasn't as intelligent as I thought he was

And the existence of Kool Herc?

Krs1 is washed up in my eyes. To defend a molested is unfirgivable.👎🏾

Had mad respect for Krs-One and Butt-Boy-Bambaatta but this right here....

Krs, always seemed quite intelligent so why is it so hard for him to believe that what happens in the dark will eventually come to the light? Especially since Butt-Boy-Bambaataa has admitted he's done this sick shit.

Hmmm... It appears KRS was touched by BAM and that is the reason he can not go HARD on him. I think he is doing his best not to let the fact that he is a victim of BAM's pedophilia because he feel those revelations may publicly destroy him and his credibility.

Wtf I don't know what the fuck he talking about.for him to feel that molesting kids is OK makes me wonder if he a pedophile too

KRS1 is defending him because he himself did a pedophile song about screwing a 13 year old!!! Look up KRS1 song from waaaay back in the day about messing with a child. He's just as gross!
