Hip Hop Lives is the collaborative album from MC KRS-One and producer Marley Marl. This is a historical album in the sense that 20 years prior, KRS and Marley were bitter rivals involved in the legendary Bridge Wars. In an interview with Unkut.com, KRS-One spoke on how the album came together and as it was released 20 years after his debut album Criminal Minded, he and Koch Records wanted something special in celebration of that and decided to get Marley Marl to produce the whole LP. The album is a quasi-sequel to Nas‘ 2006 album Hip Hop Is Dead, not a criticism as its title suggests, as KRS-One is known to have agreed with Nas’ declaration of rap music’s “death” (taken verbatim from Wikipedia).
Hip and hop is more than music.
Hip is the knowledge. Hop is the movement.
Hip and hop is intelligent movement
Or relevant movement.
Every year I get newer.
I’m the dust on the moon.

I come back.
Every year I get brighter.
If you think hip-hop is alive hold up your lighter.
