Krs-One – Down The Charts lyrics
You cats still worried about chart position
It's the heart that your missin

It's the art that your missin

Just a little something to hold yall over

The Kristal album on the way, word up

When you're number one, everybody come

But when you drop to two everybody still with you

But when you drop to three everybody want to see
But when you drop to four everybody still endures

But when you drop to five people will help you strive

When you drop to six you still in every mix

But when you drop to seven people start guessin

When you drop to eight people hesitate

But when you drop to nine that's when you start to find
That when you drop to ten you start to lose your friends

When you drop to eleven your record stop sellin

When you drop to twelve it's everyone for themselves
So when you drop to thirteen you stop working

When you drop to fourteen no more self esteem

You drop to fifteen 'cause you lived and you seen

When you drop to sixteen you now out the scene

When you drop to seventeen you see things you never seen

Like when you drop to eighteen you know what it mean

So drop to nineteen and on then to twenty

At nineteen you lose your honey

At twenty your money to a Playboy bunny
At twenty one things ain't funny

At twenty two you don't know what to do
So you hit twenty three you look for security

So you drop to twenty four no more can you endure

When you drop to twenty five at the bottom you've arrived

When you drop to twenty six you in a old school mix

When you drop to twenty eight you start to meditate
When you drop to twenty seven until you start steppin

When you drop to twenty nine you expand your mind
When you drop to thirty you see it was all dirty

No you drop to thirty two and it occurs to you

When you hit thirty three now you can see

Not whose above or whose below in the chart
That it's all about skill and a love for the art

You got to look in your heart

It's there where you start

I and hip hop are never ever ever apart
