In a recent interview with Canadian urban lifestyle magazine Urbanology, KRS-One encourages Canadian Hip-Hop artists to start a "ban America" campaign.
KRS-One was asked what he thought Canada and Toronto's problem was as far as its Hip-Hop artists being recognized on a global stage. KRS said the following:
"Here's the advice: Stop playing American artists. Ban American artists from Canadian airwaves...Get a "Ban America" campaign going , and you see how fast your stars rise. See someone need to come out with a record called "Fuck America".
KRS goes on to say that Canadian artists need to get a little more thug and that it wouldn't hurt a Canadian Hip-Hop artist to diss Hot 97 or Power 106.
