    KRS-One spent time in jail for stealing marijuana.
    Their debut album was basically about sex and violence.
    The group's membership changed constantly with KRS-One as the only constant.
    After P.M. Dawn made disparaging comments about BDP in 'The Source,' KRS-One stormed one of their concerts and threw Prince Be off the stage.
    KRS-One called Christianity a 'slavemaster religion.'
    KRS-One said, 'We cheered when 9/11 happened.'
    Scott La Rock was shot while trying to mediate a fight.
    After Scott's death, KRS-One's songs increasingly addressed social and political concerns.
    KRS-One founded the Stop the Violence Movement after a fan was killed in a fight at a Public Enemy-BDP concert.
    'Criminal Minded' and 'By All Means Necessary' were both named to The Source's list of the 100 greatest rap albums.
