A hip-hop style music documentary about Kris Parker, widely known as Blastmaster KRS-ONE. Parker has followed an arduous path to musical stardom. From his decision to leave home at the age of thirteen to pursue a musical career, to his struggles as a homeless teen on the New York streets and the tragic death of his partner DJ Scott La Rock, KRS-ONE has weathered the scene to become one of hip hop's most powerful and original voices. KRS-ONE: Philosopher is a vibrant portrait of a musician who is challenging the bad boy image of the current hip-hop scene by advocating education and intelligence. Commissioned by New American Radio.
