KRS-One Booking Agency Profile

Book KRS-One for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
KRS-One is a significant figure in the hip hop community and is often referenced in works by other hip hop artists and critics as the essence of an MC and one of the greatest to ever hold the mic. KRS-ONE, originally a member of the hip hop crew Boogie Down Productions (one of the most influential hardcore hip-hop outfits of the '80s), is known for setting the path for hardcore rap and socially conscious political rap. At the height of his career, he was known for his furiously political and socially conscious raps. The group went on to release their debut album Criminal Minded in 1987, which is often credited with setting the template for all subsequent Hardcore and Gangsta Rap. The cover, which showcases KRS-One and Scott La Rock surrounded by an arsenal of weapons, was hip-hops first major release to feature members brandishing firearms. KRS-one has recieved the Lifetime Achievement Award for all his work and effort towards the Stop the Violence Movement..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking KRS-One to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like KRS-One, with postponed or cancelled events due to COVID-19 are now, in certain cases, considering virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking KRS-One or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
KRS-One's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking KRS-One for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book KRS-One, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing KRS-One. After we consult with them, we can circle back with you to provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate KRS-One booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book KRS-One for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final KRS-One booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will KRS-One charge for an event. One example fee to book KRS-One is in the starting range of $40,000-$74,999. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the KRS-One agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The KRS-One manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book KRS-One for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the KRS-One agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book KRS-One, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the KRS-One booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for KRS-One, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
