Krs-one – The Movement lyrics


Where the real at!

Where the real at!




Where I come from gats bust for nothin'

Thugs, ministers, cops, teachers, all be hustlin'

Your family's the only one ya trustin'

Clubs be jumpin', redesigned cars be bumpin'
Now there's ranks supreme krs is a free man

In Hip-Hop culture, I'm like Allen Greenspan

I tell the culture what's hot and what's not
Now look who's on top and look whose shit just dropped

We ain't about sellin' records, we ain't music merchants

We emcees we go straight to the club and hurt shit


New York, New Jers', Boston, come on!

California, D. C., Baltimore, come on!

Texas, Atlanta, New Orleans, come on!

Philly to Chicago, Carolinas, come on!

Memphis to Nashville, Colorado, come on!

Detroit to Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, come on!
Seattle to Miami, Arizona, come on!

San Fran', Oakland, Hip-Hop, come on!

Down to the spot this is real Hip-Hop

Join this movement; them other cats steal a lot

You can feel the knowledge of self or feel this glock
I'm authentic, krs I'm really hot

Yo, what up Fat Joe that's my nigga for life

Remember when Pun fell off the stage, right on my wife
In the Bronx, we all laugh about it today

What up Freddie Fox, 2 Glocks, Pik and Spay

Dr. Dre all day, both of them

Dr. Dre with Ed Lover and the one with Eminem

This a movement, all over the world we reach

I can prove it, all over the world I teach
You hear that Dr. King, "I Have A Dream? Speech a lot

But no where is it manifested but in Hip-Hop

While them other cats be lookin' for a radio song

I'm in Washington Heights, puttin' them Dominicans on
You can feel it I'm strong, I last longer lets do it

You want the real Hip-Hop well join this movement

We ain't about sellin' records, we ain't music merchants

We emcees we go to the club and straight hurt shit


Utah, Minnesota, Mexico, come on!

V. A., Arkansas, Portland, come on!

Indiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, come on!

East St. Louis, Milwaukee man, come on!
Montreal, Toronto, Canada, come on!

East Coast, West Coast, Dirty South, come on!

Mid-West, Bible Belt, Up-Top, come on!

Hip-Hop, come on!

Hip-Hop, come on!
