Krs-one – Outta Here lyrics
DJ* Premier samples/scratches between verses "Boogie:
Down was performin hey they ain't no joke" Slick > Rick "Down
with the sound called B D P" KRS > Verse *

One Back:

in the days I knew rap would never die I
used to listen to Awesome 2 on WHBI I
used to hear all kind of rap groups before sampling loops Rappers
wore bell bottom Lee suits Me
and Kenny couldn't afford that So
we would go to the park when they was jammin' to hear rap I
used to listen till the cops broke it up I
always thought to myself "Damn why, they fucked it up "?But
never the less I was in love with the microphone And
it stayed that way until I left home On
the streets of New York now, I'm free But
with freedom comes big responsibility I
used to walk around driven by the force I
remember how large Super Rhymes was when he fell off I
used to wonder about crews that used to rock They
were large but, none of them could manage to stay on top Do

you ever think about when you outta here Record?
deal and video outta here Mercedes?
Benz and Range Rover outta here No?
doubt BDP is old school but, we ain't goin' out Verse!

Two After:

livin' on the streets alone Some
years went by I, signed myself into a group home I
used to watch the show "I Dream of Jeannie" And
dreamt about "When will I be large like Whodini "?But
I was messin' with graffiti on the subway And
gettin' chased by the cops almost everyday I
knew it had to bea better way see So
I would go to my room blast, RUN DMC Around
1984 I left the group home again, alone Still
dreamin' about the microphone Gimme
a chance man I, know I can rock it But
I had to worry about puttin' money in my pocket So
when I reached the shelter I met my helper DJ Scott La Rock And
we both loved hip-hop I
was takin' suckas out in the shelter system Yeah
there was rappers in the shelter but I had to diss 'em But
all along my, vision was never lost I
kept seeing all these rap groups fallin' off Do

you ever think about when you're outta here Fly?
girl and fresh gear outta here Five-thousand?
dollar love seat outta here No?
doubt BDP is old school but, we ain't goin' out Verse!

Three While:

I'm battling these rival crews Yes
BDP, would stay in the street news Some
said all they wanna do is battle They
can't write a song so, their careers won't last long Around
this time I used to hang with Ced Gee And
DJ Scott La Rock used to buy gold with Eric B I
didn't meet Rakim till later with Scott I
remember we were jammin' at the rooftop It
used to irk me when these critics had opinions Scott
would say "Just keep rappin' I'll, keep spinnin'" We
had a fucked up contract but, we signed it And
dropped the hip-hop album Criminal Minded We
told the critics your opinions are bull Same
time Eric B and Rakim dropped Paid in Full Hip-hop
pioneers we didn't ask to be But
right then hip-hop changed drastically People
didn't wanna hear the old rap sound We
started samplin' beats by James Brown In
the middle of doin' My Philosophy Scott
was killed and that shit got to me But
knowin' the laws of life and death I
knew his breath was, one with my breath I
had nothin' left and it was scary So
I dropped By All Means Necessary Another
hip-hop group that was a friend of me Was
a revolution crew called Public Enemy It
Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back These
two albums set off consciousness in rap But
all along I'm, still lookin' around And
all I can see are these rap groups fallin' down Do

you ever think about when you outta here Condominium?
and beach house outta here Credit?
cards and bank accounts outta here No?
doubt BDP is old school be, we ain't goin' out
