KRS One Net Worth: KRS One is an American rapper, record producer, actor and activist who has a net worth of $6 million. KRS One acquired that net worth as a recording artist with Jive Records. Born Lawrence Krisna Parker on August 20, 1965, in the Bronx, New York, is better known by his stage name KRS-One, a backronym for Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone, whereas K, R, and S are also letters from both his middle name and the name of the Hindu god, Krishna. KRS One first entered the rap scene in 1986, when Boogie Down Productions released his first hit single titled South Bronx with the late DJ Scott La Rock. Ever since, his music record numbers 20 published albums and numerous appearances with other artists. Through Boogie Productions, KRS One has established himself as a trendsetter in the Hip-Hop world. While once he introduced the Hip-Hop reggae style to rap music in 1986, he also made a name for himself as a producer that specialized in breaking new ground and new artists. He was the first to rap in an off-beat style, thus making hundreds of rappers to do the same in future. He is the man who has produced the second and third albums for Just-Ice, plus several songs for Steady B., Schooly D and Queen Latifah. What's more, he has extended his influence to the reggae market with his work on the first Shabba Ranks album, Sly & Robbie's Silent Assassins album, Shelly Thunder's first album and several remixes for Ziggy Marley. His other ground-breaking work includes collaborations with Billy Bragg, The Neville Brothers and R.E.M. For over two decades now, KRS One has single-handedly pushed hip-hop and rap culture to their most advanced levels, having taught on a great variety of subjects from self-creation to stopping violence; from vegetarianism to transcendental meditation, from the establishment of Hip Hop Appreciation Week (every third week in May), to establishing Hip Hop as an international culture at the United Nations (2001).
