KRS-One, Bambaataa To Rock SOB’s

This November, the Universal Zulu Nation celebrates its thirtieth year of existence. In honor of the occasion, a rare performance reconvenes Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force for an unforgettable evening on Sunday November 9.The event will take place at SOB’s in New York. Other performances include headliner KRS-One, the Jungle Brothers, and others to be revealed at the show.A performance legend, KRS-One said the celebration even excites him as a performer and fan.“It’s a loose performance in the sense that it’s part of a loose show. The show is Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force – the rarity of the night. I might even have them headline in actuality. I [might] go on just before them with an even shorter set. I may shorten my set to a hardcore, savage, thirty minutes. I may do it just like that with guest stars and appearances,” he told AllHipHop.com. “Everybody and they momma who knows I’m coming to SOB’s is gonna wanna get on the mic. That’s how New York always is for me. It’s all good. Freddie Foxxx may come through, the whole crew. Already Tony Touch is DJ’ing, Charlie Chase is DJ’ing, and Red Alert is DJ’ing at the place as well as the Jungle Brothers performing. We got a lot going on that night.”The night also sparks the beginning of SOB’s Hip-Hop series called Plain Rap, which highlights a rap act every Sunday evening.Other dates include acts like Pete Rock & CL Smooth, High & Mighty, Cage, Akrobatik and others, who will be announced later.For the Plain Rap debut, KRS stated that he is going to have his whole Hip-Hop force at the event.“When I travel around the country, sometimes I have my breakers with me, sometimes I don’t. For this event, I will. Kenny Parker is gonna be there DJ’ing on the One and Two’s, my breakers – the Breeze Team is gonna be there as well. The rest of the country doesn’t really get to see [this often].”
