KRS-One – Criminal Minded Practice Sessions

krs-kenny

Holy shit…Kenny Parker finally got around to ripping some of those old tapes of KRS-One rapping over breakbeats courtesy of DJ Scott La Rock and Kool DJ Red Alert , as he told us about back in 2006. While there was no sign of the one with the dog barking over Kris’ verse, there’s an incredible ‘La Di Da Di’ style track which I’ve never heard before that will make your year. Shouts out to the Frozen Files crew over at East Village Radio for making this happen.

Hey Robbie, I only played half of that “lodi dodi” styled track and someone bumped the turntable too. I gotta get you the whole thing. It’s crazy. KP

hey, there’s part of “making moves” in that mix, one of the tracks from Maximum Strength that has never surfaced. I still really want to hear the rest of that album – making moves sounded good, and several of the white labels were fantastic.

This is incredible! Thanks Robbie and thank you Mr. Parker.

As for the picture above, I’m assuming Kris is the kid with the loudmouth.

@20:53 a beat from Company Flow’s first album from 1997 drops. Was this recorded way later, or did KRS-ONE have this beat way earlier?

The last track that you hear was from Tony Touch’s 50 Mc’s mixtape. I started playing some released stuff as the mix went on. I was spinning for about half an hour.

Yo Robbie. Long time. This is incredible.

Peace, Kenny. Thanks for sharing. This made my year.

[…] Last week, DJ Kenny Parker released archive recordings of BDP’s practice sessions for the album through the Frozen Files show on East Village Radio. The tapes, recorded at Parker’s house in the mid-1980s, see KRS-One rapping over vintage beats from Scott La Rock and Kool DJ Red Alert. As well as a chance to hear Criminal Minded-era material in a nascent form – a prototype version of ‘The Bridge Is Over’ is included – the set includes some spirited KRS-One rhymes. plus a great pastiche of Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh’s ‘La Di Da Di’ [via Unkut] […]
