INTRO SAMPLE

KRS-One:
“What you gotta do is the minute you get the mic in your hand and the crowd sees it, you got the mic in you hand, BOOM - mic in your hand … go right in on them!”


VERSE

…right back on the track invading your space
what did the five fiingers say to the face?
SLAP! Rick James bitch!
don’t get side-swiped, better switch lanes quick
this track will break your neck….


SAMPLE

KRS-One:
“What you need is courage to be you. You need a reason and a right to stand on for you to be you. That’s what Hiphop is!”


VERSE

Man I don’t give a fuck if you’re gay of straight
if you a cool transgender we can blaze a ‘J’
and talk about rappers bitin’ other rappers’ styles
like Kobe Bryant did with MJ’s fade-away
and who can blame him? Hey,
if I could I would
then with NBA cash get some goodie goods
and fire up the whole block, pass to the left
we can roll it, bowl it, vape or hash it I guess
if it’s bad for your chest we can bake you something
I like passionate sex when I’m waking up and then
a bowl right after, I don’t know about you
but I’m feeling so right I might go for round 2
Como estas tu, hermano mio?
You know we gotta spit fire porque hace frio
You motherfuckers think you’re slick pero ya te visto
I came to SPLASH! Debes estarte listo
like a gold digger digging for some shiny rocks
or a man with some money and a giant cock
cuz their boyfriends’ shit is like a microbot
chasing all the wrong dreams, I hope they try and stop
and get back to school, start hitting them books
get your mind right kids, better listen and look
cuz life is like chess, better position your rooks
and speaking of chess - it’s worth mentioning
you need a good strong queen to protect the king
I’m a rhyming menace,
and it’s time to get this
new shit off the ground in T minus seven
six, five, four, three, 2 Men-E wuz good?!?
if only these woodchucks could chuck wood
I laugh in the face of these rappers today
cuz they’re actors and fakes that’ll yap to the jakes
let me calm back down before I bust a gut
I know that some of y’all think that I’m fuckin’ nuts
ciuz I think what I think and I say what I say
I blaze cuz I stress and it takes it away
it’s the end of humanity if we don’t act
so I don’t bite my tongue and I don’t hold shit back
and I don’t think you should either, speak your peace
que sera sera, what will be will be
people all around the world dream of being free
while you bamma emcees dream of seein’ me
but I ain’t looking for a battle so I just bounce
it’s too much noise, I need some quiet now
so I’m-a turn around and walk, time to get ghos
that’s why yo mama wears underwear with dick holes
shit, did I say that? no I just tip toe
headed for the back door, tip toe, then woah…
I’m right back on the track invading your space
what did the five fiingers say to the face?
SLAP! ... Rick James bitch!
don’t get side-swiped, better switch lanes quick
this track will break your neck like big, fake tits
they might be able to relate to me if they wish
to step in to my, step in to my…
… back on the track invading your space
what did the five fiingers say to the face?
SLAP! ... Rick James bitch!
don’t get side-swiped, better switch lanes quick
this track will break your neck like big, fake tits
they might be able to relate to me if they wish
to step in to my, step in to my…
…world and join me in the war on bullshit
like a private eye
and it’s ride or die
I no longer accept the things that I can’t change
until my dying days
I’ll try to find a way
to get closer to peace and to no more war
so I’ll open my mind if you’ll open the door
so I can step in to your, step in to your world


SAMPLE

KRS-One:
“What makes you a Hiphop scholar, ‘I am Hiphop’? Not ‘I’ve read ten books’, ‘I’ve been to the concerts’, ‘I’ve rapped in the studio’ - No! … You are it itself first. Get the feeling. … History is being made right now. … The second part to being a Hiphop scholar is you gotta be Hiphop all the time. You’re Hiphop all the time. Twenty four hours, seven days a week - you are Hiphop. Now that’s a hard thing to do. That’s hard.”


VERSE

Hey hey hey… hey hey hey…
Get your notebooks out - it’s back to school
keyboard, pen or pencil, better grab your tool
I’m-a act a fool and hit ludicrous speed
buffoonish emcees
can’t do it like me
man I spit hot fire - better ask about me
you’re like Tommy Gunn tryin’ to challenge Rocky
full contact , better have a mouthpiece
class dismissed, ask about me
Get your notebooks out - it’s back to school

you’re like Tommy Gunn tryin’ to challenge Rocky

KRS-One:
“The last part to this, one of the things that come even before courage is love. Love will figure all that out.”
