    I always looked at Shan as one of those rappers who's time was up as soon as that changing of the guard happened around 86-87.
    I think he was more misfortunate with timing (delay of sophomore LP due to addiction/Cold Chillin' roster) - Born To Be Wild is actually an incredible LP in my opinion and I have heard lots of others share that view on Born To Be Wild....I pioneered this/Juice crew law etc ....of course after that his career went up the spout until Snow but again that was more down to trying to reinvent himself a la fresh prince very unsuccessfully lols!

    Totally....I guess it goes to show how loose the collective was later on, but also how interconnected other artists were. Of course Shan went on tour with KRS too...craziness

    KRS is a better battle rapper by a stretch so therefore won the battle.

    Don't think its anymore complex than that.

    They are both extremely annoying human beings living on past glory so I don't really care either way. I still enjoy their early records.

    Totally agree on your second point lol.....

    And I do agree that KRS was/is a better battle rapper but I guess my point was they never actually battled. They both made great records which different people have different views on. KRS certainly created the narrative that he had won!

    Jay Quan is a brave chap going live with Shan!



    Its a really good interview, Shan didnt go too crazy but he is definitely a loose cannon.

    I've been watching some of Shan's Instagram rants over the last few days, I think he's accusing KRS of biting his style.
    Their styles are not even comparable are they? Both dope (back in the days) but both chalk and cheese as far as rap styles are concerned.

    Yea I heard those and yep totally agree re: styles , I don't think Shan can claim that in all fairness. However he finally did raise a point I've been waiting for someone else to raise ie Juice Crew Law. After all the Bridge wars were just a battle on wax (no face to face battle - apart from their shows at the time which were done collaboratively) and so when people claim Bridge Is over was the full stop/end point, I don't feel that is the case necessarily - it is an incredible record but so was Juice Crew law which came after....looking fwd to what he says next, both he and KRS1 are a little bit crazy these days lol
