KRS-One

Recognized both for his work with Boogie Down Productions as well as his solo efforts, KRS-One has justifiably earned the nickname The Teacha. In addition to his slew of albums and general outspokenness, KRS is also known for repping hard for the Bronx in a beef with Marley Marl and MC Shan in the late 1980s.
