KRS-One Attacked on Stage

- By Bossip Staff

KRS-One teaches by example during his “Stop the Violence Movement Tour”:

“Rap legend KRS-One suffered a fractured right hand at the hands of an angry fan, during a recent performance at a New Haven, CT nightclub. The fan, who became upset after being escorted off stage by the club’s security staff, threw a bottle in the direction of the stage, striking KRS-One in the face and hand. Despite the fan’s hostility, KRS-One remained calm as he urged the crowd to ‘Let it go. When negativity comes your way, let it go,’ said the rapper, who was rushed to to Yale-New Haven hospital in an ambulance. ‘Let this be an example as to how we stop the violence,’ KRS-One said.'”

Ain’t that some stuff. Now the “Stop the Violence” tour is postponed due to violence. KRS-One was really put to the test. Kudos to him for keeping his cool. Those ticket sales would’ve went belly up if he hauled off and b**ch-slapped that guy.

    Dude, why was the fan so angry. It is shame that one person messes it up for everyone. That’s why performers are not touring like they use to because of idiots like this.

  • ms meca

  • Brooklyn, Stand UP!

    KRS One is a man w/ respect and is a legend in the Hip Hop game. Good for him for being the better man by walking away. Some people need to follow his antics instead of killing one another.

  • The Devil Is A Liar

    However, he ‘sho’ is UGLY.

  • Brooklyn, Stand UP!

    @Holla, Brooklyn stand UP

  • Blacksmith

    He handled it like a man. When people are in the obvious wrong, there is no need to retaliate. Can’t stop one of the legends of hip-hop. Keep going KRS.

  • EG da God

    New Haven can be a bit sketchy, I’m from there, I know. But this is just crazy.

  • realwoman

    KRS-1 has stayed positive for the most part anyway so this doesn’t surprise me. What does surprise me are the idiots on here commenting on his beautiful African man nose instead of his actions!

    **Remember you are just a watered down version of what you are supposed to be.**

  • Lil' Kevin Mayne


  • ms braided beauty the real one

    Brooklyn… you know i got mad luv for you after you thought of me fri after the quake in chi- you get mad respect if you ever come our way.. its already been told!!!!!

  • BlackMan

    Yo hommie has a massive nose…


    Ok first off let me address some funny ass comments

    LOL@Harlem chick with the bell pepper comment…Hilarious!!!

    Next @ I cant say…It’s Stamford not Stanford

    An now for my assessment of the situation….New Haven IS indeed ghetto so I can see why he would have a stop the violence concert there. The last time I attended something in New Haven shots were fired, my and my girlfriends were running in heels and there were empty purses and baby strollers left inthe street. Mind you about an hour before that someone had already been shot.

    Also, there have been many rapper victims in New haven. If my memory serves me right, Cassidy got hit with a bottle in New Haven also and proceeded to jump inthe crowd and got handled. Ummmm, STOP THE VIOLENCE MY PEOPLE!

  • D
