Prepare to be Raptised

From the end of today's song:
Twice a year, hip-hoppers come together
to celebrate the unity of hip-hop
We come together, during Hip-Hop Appreciation Week
Which is every third week in May
Then, we come together in Novemeber
to celebrate Hip-Hop History Month
I will see you there - PEACE!
When KRS-ONE (Short for Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone) tells you to do something... you do it. Plus a quick perusal of the internets tells me that other people are following suit and participating as well. So welcome to Hip Hop Appreciation Week, where the Biggies and the Lil's, the Dawgs and the Doggs will all be representing here at EDAS, showcasing some of the best flows and beats the streets have ever offered.

We kick it off with KRS, one of the main the Architects of Hip Hop consideringbeing he had the original Blueprints. When Hip Hop was invented at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the South Bronx (South, South Bronx) KRS was just a small kid, running around legends like DJ Kool Herc and Grand Wizard Theodore, fully aware he was going to be one of the next to carry the torch. Now if you will, please "Gather 'round for the Raptism."
