Word up!It's just a little somethin to tide you over, word up

The "KRStyle" album comin soon, KRS-One all in the room

We gonna bounce these cats this year, word up

Why they do this?Ha - yo, yo




[KRS-One]
I climb up the back of rappers

Reach over they head, and rap backwards at 'em
Excuse me madam, I used to throw these uzis at 'em



But I'm a teacher, skills I truly have 'em
These clubs I duly pack 'em

Potential lawyers engineers and doctors, I do attract 'em

Go to your professors and ask 'em


If the songs of the "Edutainment" in college they didn't blast 'em
Yes - I'm that ancient one

I set the framework for today's rappers to make they funds

But no you don't know me son

My facial features matches the Sphinx with it's nose redone

You know how many clubs we done rocked?

You know how many guns we done popped?

You know how many funds we done dropped?

You know how many ones we done got?
We been gettin live since the days of Chubb Rock


We know how to survive; these other cats
Be in at nine o'clock then be out at five, uhh


We doin the overtime, on stage I over-rhyme

Makin these whack rappers tow the line

Steppin to me, I know you blind; cause your whole flow

Your show, your style, you know it's all mine!

The first time you learned to spit


It was either me, Kane, Rakim or Slick Rick!
{*water splashes*



Welcome to the "KRStyle"


This year I had to switch styles and bust off two miss-iles
And that's not all, rappers have the gall

To pray and pray for my downfall - but still in all

I have X amount of lyrics to get 'em all

Live at the club I spit 'em all


Rappers backstage lookin sad and piti-fal
Cause they know I'm the pinna-cle and they mini-mal

I spit the metaphysical, the spiritual

The oracle, the lyrical, the oratorical

Rookie!I'll mop the floor witcho'

I'm the lyrical foundation to all your flows

All your clothes, all your shows and I'm not alone
You wouldn't even know how to hold the mic or the phone


You couldn't even bite on the bone


While we was rockin mics out in Rome
Now you hyped cause you grown?

You know we internationally known, the people love it

But what they learnin bout is on the whole, look above it

But let us get back to what we call hip-hop


Before you whack rappers went pop
{*water splashes*
