KRS One Signs With Duck Down, MONSTA Hit With Cease & Desist

Couple interesting things to report (and comment on) today, including the new KRS One/Duck Down Records deal, and Ray Benzino getting hit with a Cease & Desist order for trademark infringement.

First, AllHipHop.com reports that Hip-Hop legend KRS One has signed with Duck Down Records, the independent label responsible for launching the careers of Black Moon, Buck Shot, Helta Skelta, Originoo Gun Clappaz, Smif N Wessun, and more. Duck Down CEO Dru Ha says, “To say we are honored and humbled would be an understatement”.


KRS is currently working with Duck Down artist Buck Shot on a new LP tentatively entitled “Conflosation“. According to AllHipHop, “The album will touch on a number of social and political issues,
including the New World Order, unemployment and poverty.”

Definitely a good look for KRS, and Duck Down!

In other news, Ray “Benzino” Scott and David Mays, owners of the newly launched “Monsta” Magazine, have legal troubles on the horizon, according to ProHipHop.com.

According to the report, Mr. Robert G. Lopez of MONSTA News and a Special Features Editor for Don Diva Magazine, has served Monsta Magazine with a Ceast and Desist order for trademark infringement. According to Mr. Lopez, “I own the trademark rights to that name and I’m shutting them down, point blank…”

Definitely not a good look for Benzino & company…

    I’m from New Haven, I was there at the concert when he got hit with the bottle and that’s fucked up, You’re name will be in the police blotter so live it up while you can. This BS on the radio that people call Hip-Hop, you can have it. I’m done trying to reach and talk to those who won’t listen. The universe will get with you on a 360 so don’t look back ’cause it coming right in front of you. Peace to real Hip-Hop and get well KRS.
