KRS-One Finally Explains Difference Between 'MC and Emcee' + More

KRS-One is one of the greatest rappers of all time. With that out of the way the things he says, combined with the crazed look in his eyes as he makes his points, is the stuff of legends. In a recent video, the Blastmaster explained the difference between MCing and Emceeing, or something. "What I'm saying is, that the MC has to know what rhyme to say at what time. You just don't say any rhyme, you have to move the crowd. A Master of Ceremony doesn't necessarily move the crowd, but an MC, the way Rakim described the MC, moves the crowd. But you can't move the crowd unless you have DJ capabilities. These are some of the differences, and some of the more intricate levels...a DJ is an MC, and an MC is a DJ." Seriously, KRS is one more collaboration album away from declaring magic the 6th element of hip hop. [NahRight]
