OKAY, SHOULD I TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY?!…H1N1 AND FLU OUTBREAK?
The Blastmaster KRS-One has been educating Hip-Hop and the masses for over 20 years. As he gears to release his latest project Survival Skills on September 15 with Duck Down front-man Buckshot, KRS spoke to Hip-Hop Wired exclusively about the controversial documentary The Obama Deception. In the film, KRS speaks on secret societies running the United States and the world as well as his views on the nation’s first African-American President. Receiving some flack for his outspoken views, KRS-One addresses the film and his real feelings about President Obama and it’s not exactly what you think. His philosophy never is but edutaining nonetheless.
“If they controlled it before, what makes you think they’re not controlling it now? The country was on the verge of revolution. They threw a Black man up, now we like this (complacent). They put a Black face on the New World Order and now we all happy. KRS ain’t buying it.” …KRS-One (The Obama Deception).
HipHopWired: KRS, you’ve never been one to hold your tongue but you feel that some misconceptions about you and your feelings about President Obama have been distorted. So do you support the film The Obama Deception where you raised some interesting questions on the government and The President?
KRS-One: I’m not in support of it but I am in support of everything I said. No doubt but when I did the interview it wasn’t supposed to be a movie. It wasn’t supposed to be what it is. I’m sensitive to the struggle. There’s a whole truth movement separate from Hip-Hop. There’s a whole 9-11 anti-war movement that needs me in that capacity so I don’t really beef with it too much and I allowed the movie to come out without lawsuits and all that type of stuff. But really, no. I’m not personally in support. I have my views on that.
HipHopWired: So were your words taken out of context and will you do your own documentary on The New World Order?
KRS-One: Maybe somebody should one day. We can do our own documentary even answering The Obama Deception but what I will say is that it’s just like when I was misquoted with 9-11 when The Daily News misquoted me saying that I said, “We cheered when 9/11 happened.” The Daily News then put me on blast saying that if Osama bin Laden was to buy an album, it would be KRS-One’s. And then everybody in America was like, “Aww, fuck KRS.” But around the world, the Muslim community was busting shots, like, “Yeah, KRS.” And it was a misquote. So in colleges, even though certain Palestinians, Muslims, Arabs …come up to me. Not that they was with 9/11 but they understood what I was saying about the cheering of that system going down. That whole fake, that corruption finally falling. They and the world understood it and the same thing is with The Obama Deception as well.
I don’t really support the movie or how they tried to pull Obama out like that, I’m not in support of that. But Obama is on that shit too on another level. He is The President. Fuck all the dumb shit, he is the President and he has people that he must answer to that are not me and are not you and they don’t have our interest in mind. No government does in that sense. It’s about people power so in that instance I’m not ashamed of the message.
