KRS-One: The N-Word Revisited

AllHipHop Staff

The N-Word may be the more polarizing, confounding, confusing, charged word in the history of HUMANKIND.

Its origins have been discussed, debated, and dialoged for hundreds of years and still – to this day – there has been no clear resolution on what it truly means.

Perhaps that is because the word has come to mean so many different things to so many different people. Furthermore, the word seems to evolve and meld to the "host" much like a virus adjusting to a vaccine.

KRS-One recently talked about the topic of the N-Word, a term that we at refrain from using. Still, we couldn’t help but relate to the eloquence and fresh look that the Bronx-bred rapper offered via this online video.
