HIP-HOP | KRS-One 

South Bronx emcee KRS-One is a legendary lyricist, political activist, and graffiti artist in his own right. He, along with his deceased musical partner DJ Scott La Rock, created the historic Boogie Down Productions in 1987— which had a hand in creating the first emcee rap battles and fusing Jamaican dancehall and American hip-hop. In 2017, KRS-One released "The World is Mind" and is still keeping hip-hop true to its purest form, more than 30 years into his career. Just a few days later, you can catch another hip-hop legend, Warren G, also playing Montage (Tuesday, June 12. 8:30 p.m. $30-$75. warreng.com.)

KRS-One performs Saturday, June 9, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 6 p.m. $30-$35. facebook.com/montagemusichall; krs-one.com.
