Word.. we stand out, word

We don't wanna sound like that bullshit



[KRS-One]

Let 'em all be aware, not at all will I care

You gotta know it's about the flow when you comin in here

Not how long is your hair, but how long were you here

How many dues you paid, crews you slayed, yeah

How many clubs you done rocked, f'real

You ever rocked outside with cats poppin they steel?

You fake like Ma-Ma-Ma-Max Headroom

You go from the bedroom to the studio back to the bedroom

We be on the front line, pavin the way
For you to do what you do, get what you get, say what you say


Flip what you flip, play what you play at the Grammy's

But you don't represent our family, you a thief!



[Chorus: KRS-One]
All up and down the East coast


THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE

All up and down the West coast, down in the South
THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE


All up top and in North Canada, make some noise

THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE

All my cats in London, Birmingham, Brixton, word!

THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE



[KRS-One]

Join the campaign to rearrange the rap game

Don't look at me like I'm insane, the facts remain plain


You to blame, when you take it in vein

From the beginning we tried to attain, the money and fame
The gains and struggles and pains of those that already came


That's not new to the game, it's still the same
But what seems to change is the loyalty

Rappers degrade hip-hop for a royalty

It's all about me and my click and we ballin G

But we fallin, stallin our callin to be free

You can't see, they're gonna judge our poetry

In two-thousand and twenty-three, where will your money be?

Where will your Benz be?Your friends be?


Your beginnin be?Your end be?Gently
You tell me to my face my style you envy
But behind my back you condemn me, you a thief!




[Chorus: KRS-One]

All out in Germany, Africa


THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE
Word up, hip-hop, join the nation, movin!

THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE

Word up, all them fake-ass whack rappers, word up!

THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE

Tell 'em, go to they shows and let 'em know it's like this

THINGS IS ABOUT TO CHANGE



[KRS-One]

For sure, it's the people that defend me

Yeah you on MTV, but did you know Ted Demme?
What about Fab 5 Freddy, Red Alert?

You not ready.. ready.. ready.. {*fades*




{*ends with sound of glass shattering*
