KRS-One believes that his words were taken out of context when he spoke about allegations that Afrika Bambaataa sexually abused multiple teenage boys. The Boogie Down Productions rapper took to his website to issue a statement to clarify his comments and decry the media for distorting his words.

“I have just arrived in Barcelona; sorry for the delay. In response to the responses and comments made after my interview with Nore, I am taking this time to clarify some of my statements to those that seem to be confused about my remarks regarding the controversy surrounding Afrika Bambaataa,” KRS-One says in an essay entitled Keep the Focus and Ignore the Haters [Part-One]. “One headline that I had read stated ‘KRS-One Doesn’t Care If Afrika Bambaataa Molested Kids’. Wow! Really? Fortunately, anyone can go to the audio and/or video recording of my entire interview with Nore and see for themselves just how irresponsible such headlines are. It seems that people will say anything these days to draw attention to their site.”

KRS-One has a song, “We Don’t Care Anymore,” which was a part of the 2003 compilation album D.I.G.I.T.A.L. He says he does not find it amusing how the media played off this in order to get page views. He says that he is concerned about the well-being of all youth and does not condone sexual abuse and is seeking to remove himself from the controversy, which he calls “sensationalist gossip.”
