The Field: Chicago (A Profile Of The City’s Hottest Artists, The Violence That Surrounds Them And The Hope Music Brings To Their Lives
GSC received an email from white rapper MC Funky J this morning, revealing a secretly taped conversation that he had with his former “Teacha”, rapper KRS-One.
In the conversation, Funky J has apparently accused KRS-ONE of having something to do with J’s van being stolen. Funky J then must have left a written message at the residence of KRS-ONE that KRS perceived as threatening. The recording picks up with the two in a heated argument about the situation. During the conversation, it is revealed that both artists have taken losses from dealing with each other. The confrontation escalates with KRS threatening to ‘kill’ Funky J, as well as ‘breaking his *** neck’ and ‘blowing his *** mouth off’
Funky J seems to be backing off of his threats while inciting KRS to make more, as J seems to be aware that the conversation is being recorded, a fact that KRS is probably not aware of at the time of the recording.
