KRS-One

Year of Honor: 2007

Activist. Teacher. Pioneer. Even though a few emcees will be remembered as hip hop’ founders, only KRS-One is universally heralded for his loyalty and continued advancement of the culture. The definition of dropping jewels, KRS-One always leaves a lesson on the microphone.

One thing you should remember: Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everything. (Photo: Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images)
