Krs-One – Over 30 lyrics

Get your hands up

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

It's your teacher, welcome to my classroom
Who's he, what's that? Yo you better ask soon
It's the K to the are to the S One
By now I think it's real, I'm the best one

Yes son, I take it to the old school
I spit super rhymes 'cause I am so cool
A duel? You must be fool
Player you know the rules

I take it to the old school quick
Get Fresh Crew, Doug E. Fresh
'The Adventures of Slick Rick'
It gets so sick 'cause I ain't no joke
This song goes out to grown folk like Tone Loc

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

I'm 'Smooth' like Big Daddy Kane, no bull
Check out 'My Melody' I'm 'Paid in Full'
Before 'The Chronic' I was Stetsasonic
Old school, true school, oh yes sir, I'm it

1985 bumpin' Mantronix
1995 gettin' slammed with Onyx
2005 doin' shows with comics
2015 we still gon' rock shh

With dough, 'dro my flow in the pocket
I'm already 40 some say I need to stop it
Call me when it's time to really hip hop it
I'm true school, if you wasn't there don't knock it

Where my people that's over 20 now?

Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

Every year I get newer, this goes out to the future
Just like Slick Rick the Ruler, krs a true schooler
You wanna be down man when I'm layin' it down man
Place all packed I'm bringin' the heat with soundman

C'mon lay it down man, movin' the crowd man
Television viewin' is down man
Radio listenin' is down man, you can't say
You was doin' it better than we was around man

We was down for the Rage and we was Against the Machine
Now we turned the page and we the mainstream
Servin' the same fiends but are we on the same team
That was prophesied in Dr. King's dream?

No matter how things seem I stay with the original plan
Teachin' our children original man
And who's the 'Criminal' clan?
My '86 lyrics then you hear it helped you build and expand

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now

Where my people that's over 20 now?
Where my people that's over 30 now?
Where my people that's over 40 now?
Classic, that's what they call us now
