Edutainment – KRS-One & The Stop The Violence Movement 2008

The official video preview of the Blastmaster’s recently rejuvenated Stop The Violence campaign and the forthcoming “Self-Construction” all-star posse cut.

No disrespect to any artist who gave up their time to participate in this worthy and much-needed cause, but let’s hope some of the faces in the above clip actually practice what they preach when it comes time for them to drop another album. Sixteen bars about peace and unity on a KRS project isn’t going to hit home particularly hard with the record’s intended audience if you’re back to killing a thousand people on your next joint, beefing with other rappers and screaming “I’m a gangsta” every two seconds. Time will tell.
