Knowledge Reigns Supreme Pt. 1 – HeatWave [PSA]

Vancouver, B.C. – Okay, so we’re pretty excited that Fortune Sound Club is hosting the high priest of rap on November 15 – KRS-One‘s Gospel of Hip-Hop is the touchstone for rap theory and poetics, and the man himself has shaped and inspired not just the genre but the individual creative forces in it. Thus begins our “Knowledge Reigns Supreme” series in which MCs share with us how exactly KRS-One shaped them. We start out with the opening act for the Vancouver show, HeatWave.

KRS-One

“KRS-One was rapping over classical, techno, rock, it didnt matter he was just MCing. I loved that, it made me want to be as versatile as possible when it came to music.”


HeatWave recalls, “I remember being in Toronto with Red1 about four years ago because we had a show out there and during our days off we happened to go to a KRS-One concert at the Opera house and it was an incredible experience for me. The venue was grungy and dark on some underground hip-hop shit and it was packed to capacity. The music was so loud that you could hear the concert from outside the building – it was live in there. KRS-One put on a great show, I loved the way he set the vibe and how he engaged with the crowd and how much energy and passion he brought to the room. I vividly remember him teaching everybody in the room how to be an MC which is a master of the ceremony and he was rapping over any type of beats and rocking the room. KRS-One was rapping over classical, techno, rock, it didnt matter he was just MCing. I loved that, it made me want to be as versatile as possible when it came to music.”
