Chris & Kenny Parker, you can't get no darker.
Respect due to the Blastmaster KRS-ONE, the teacher.

Probably not the best fit for SNWMF, but I wouldn't complain. -MK

check out: Boogie Down Productions-Live Hardcore Worldwide. Some dope ass dancehall/hip-hop mixture.
krs-one at his best... in my opinion..Would definetly fit the conscious vibe! It would be Better than Spearhead at least.

"You sit at home with a pen and a pad-Going glad, bad, mad, dad, Sad! your style is from 78-A little late, go get a tape by the great, Blast master poetic, your records are pathetic, Oh you make demo tapes, I'll give you credit"

"the way some act in rap is sorta whack, and it lacks creativity and inteligence, but the don't care because the company is sellin' it"

Re: KRS ONE
January 21, 2005 05:07AM
yea man, BDP did boom tunes on alot of reggae riddims (Stalag, Bobby Babylon, plus their own creations). I didn't even know it was reggae I was hearing back in '89 I just figured it was their own style. I love that Live Worldwide album, also Just-Ice with his hiphop-dancehall tunes with KRS like "Gimme Pass" and "Moshitup".
He was much better than Mad Lion, Jamalski, Skadanks or anyone else KRS brought in later.

I play only the reggae and I play only rap,
I rock the African, The European, The jap,
The woman in my bed has got to be strictly black,
So I must rock the mic..

Some likkle tin pan sound wan come fe rule the city,
His style was looking pretty, beats and rhymes and dibby dibby
Here comes the rootical raptical teacher,
I'll eatcha, defeatcha, beatcha, till you standing and your teeth chatter,
You'll be going into convulsions as I flash data,
Any rapper can be a decapitated rapper, so whats the matter?
You're full of more junk than a sausage,
Let me show you what a real hip hop artist is.

My possee's from the Cruz. -MK

KRS ONE, the greatest MC in the history of hip hop and a massive reggae head as well.

He's fallen off a little in recent times, but is STILL better than all these MTV rappers like Nelly and Jay Z.

Re: KRS ONE
January 21, 2005 06:53PM
Go ask those "better rappers" who inspired them to touch the mic, and I bet nine of ten would list KRS-ONE. They wouldn't even step up to battle the blastmaster.
KRS-ONE is far from MTV's standard for "cool".
I'm not even going to go there. -MK

"One of the first things we gotta switch around of course
Is Jesus Christ and Him dying of the cross
See what if Jesus Christ was hung upon a tree
Upon every Church wall that's exactly what you'd see
If Jesus Christ was shot in the head with no respect
We'd all have likkle gold guns around our neck
If Jesus Christ was killed in the electrictric chair, now get it
We'd be kneelin to the electric chair with Jesus still in it
You gaze at the Cross and you see the execution
You yell stop the the Violence
but the cross is Still Used."


"Listen, Listen
Open up your third Eye Vision
God is not down with Religon
Religon they be tellin it, sellin it
Readin of the Bible is irrelevant
You gotta look within yourself
not a scripture
KRS ONE come to re arrange the God Picture
Take for instance Adam and Eve
the first two people on the planet
or so you be-lie-ve
The first time in having kids they had Cain and Abel
now let me show you why the stories unstable
According to the story, According to what you believe
there was only Cain, Abel, Adam and Eve
Now think for a second and use your intellect
and tell me what did Cain and Abel do for Sex?
Upon the whole planet there was not another
could it be for sex, they were lookin at each other
Hold Up I thought the Church wasn't into that
but wait there is another fact
How did the world get populated?
Now tell me if I'm wrong, but obviously Eve had it goin on.
It's Not Magical if it goes against GOD
I't not Factual Her Truth is not Hard."

KRS has not fallen off at all. He still performs live and comes tight as ever.
Re: KRS ONE
January 21, 2005 09:31PM
X actly Seen!!!!! it is the LIVE show that says who has fallen and who is rising. KRS live is the best show I have seen. bar none. I saw him live up in Portland after he ripped a lecture at Reed College.
Re: KRS ONE
January 21, 2005 10:17PM
I've never been to hip-hop show in NYC, so I have no credibility whatsoever, but KRS does rip the livest stage show I 've seen.
It would be nice to have Kenny Parker on the wheels, with KRS with Aceyalone and Abstract Rude on the mic. They all have roots influences, keep it super concious, and can rip a serious set with no rehersal.
The A-Team is LA based, and KRS is affordable relative to his place in history so it would be feasible, and bring a different flavor to Angels Camp.-MK

"beef, what a relief. when will this poisonous product cease. this is a public service announcement. you can believe it or you can doubt it. let us begin now with the cow, the way it gets to your place and how. the cow doesn't grow fast enought for man. so threw his greed he makes a faster plan. he has drugs to make the cow grow quicker. threw the stress the cow grows sicker. 21 different drugs are pumped, into the cow in one big lump. so just before it dies, it cties. in a slaughter house full of germs and flies. off with the head they pack it, drain it, and cart it. and there it is in your local supermarket. red and bloody, a corps neatly packed, and we wonder about heart attacks. come on now man let's be for real. you are what you eat is the way i feel. but the food and drug administration, will tell you beef is the perfect combination. see cows live under fear and stress, trying to think whats gonna happen next. fear and stress can become a part of you, in your cells and blood this is true. so before you eat, believe it. you preserve those cells, you freeze it. thaw it out with the blood and season it. then you sit down and begin eating it. in your body its structure becomes your structure. all the fear and stress of another. so if you think what i'm saying is a bunch of crock. tell yourself your gonna try and stop, eatin' meat and you'll see you can't compete. it's the #1 drug on the streets. not crack, cuz that was made for just blacks. but brown beef for all american teeth. Life brings life and death brings death. keep on eatin' the dead and whats left. absolute disease and negative read the book ,How To Eat To Live. by elija mohammed. it's a brown paper back. for anybody either white or black. see how many cows must be pumped up fatter? how many rats gotta fall in the batter? How many chickens that eat **** you eat? How much high blood preasure you get from pigs feet. see you'll consume the FDA will care less, they'll sell you donkey meat. and say it's fresh...! for 1990 you suckas....krs-one

Re: KRS ONE
January 22, 2005 04:28AM
Ok, let me clarify what I meant by "fallen off", all I mean is that his last few albums haven't been up to the legendary status of "Criminal Minded" or "By All Means Necessary".

Never seen the man live, he's only been here in the UK a couple of times as he has a fear of flying and came by boat both times.

I don't check for much hip hop these days, but still have all my old school **** from the 80s up til about 95 and some of those KRS One tunes still sound as fresh now as they did then, such as "Sound Of Da Police", "MCs Act Like They Don't Know", "Edutainment(over Don Drummond's "Man In The Street"winking smiley, etc.

For me, only Rakim came close to snatching his title of greatest MC.

Respect

The greatest performance I've seen, of any type of music, was KRS One at the Haze Theater in SF in 1994. It was right when Return of the Boom Bap came out, right when he started twisting his hair, and none of his crew. Just KRS, a big-ass bodyguard, and a sold out warehouse he left for rubble 90 minutes later.

"hip hop to me is a way of life,
just like religion is to others with jesus christ,
just like a preacher speaks the sermons on the holy day,
so does my posse rock the riddm in the deffest way....

not KRS-1, but john dillinger circa 1984 and most certainly KRS-1 inspired as was JUST- ICE and T-LA ROCK and MANTRONIX....

my name is john dillinger, not al capone....
hip hop rockin on the microphone,
some people think i look like sylvester stallone,
but im not the cat called rambo!

now this was one of my most weakest raps but got the most laughs especially from irie dan and all the folks at DREADSTOCK 2004, one love to all sierra nevada folks, glad this board is back!

I've seen him once at a multicultural fest at ucsc with Medusa, and some other group, don't remember who. Krs-One rocked it. Medusa was dope also. Kenny Parker got the crowd warmed up. And the blastmaster set it on fire. Some of his best was when Boogie Down Productions was still hittin'. (my opinion) But his solo albums were very dope as well. For those that don't care too much for Hip-Hop I advise you to check him out. He might change your outlook on hip- hop culture.

the way some act in rap is kinda wack
and it lacks
creativity and intellegence
but they don't care cause they company's sellin it
that's my philosophy, upon the industry
don't bother dissin me or even wishin we'd
soften, dillute or commercialize all the lyrics
cause it's about time one of ya'll hear it

one love to you matt...
KRS and mad lion or even brother D from the clappers label would be outright groundbreaking for a spot at sierra this year.
another cat who brings it tight inna a rasta hip hop fashion and conscious is bambaataa...
afrikkkka rocked it at a tru skool gig at the DNA this past october and the vibe was like being at a close friends house party in 1981, literal flashback in time and the man put it down inna reggae style just like they did back then, all these young folks dancing and being cool and respectful of each other and everyone else, tripped me out and was a nice release following the summer of festivals and dreadstock business...
wadi gad said keep it roots, and i see the good vibes at the festivals where the music might be different but they support the feeling, ya dig?

one love, john dillinger
Re: KRS ONE

Back in the days I knew rap would never die,
I used to listen to Awesome 2 on on WHBI,
I used to hear all kinds of rap groups before
samplin loop rappers wore bell bottom lee suits.
Me and Kenny couldn't afford that so we go to the park
When they was jamming and hear rap.
I used to listen till the cops broke it up,
I always thought to myself, Damn, Why they f$#@ it up.

Re: KRS ONE
February 07, 2005 09:05PM
A mystical teacher sat by the seaside
It was about five o'clock cause we heard the free ride
Anyway; the teacher was talking in stride
sitting upon a rock that was wide
and warning against false pride
"Come to where I reside!" a woman cried
and the teacher replied, "Do you serve your fish fried?"
"Yes," she replied, "with potato salad on the side."
And the teacher replied, "Well where do you reside?"
She said, "Up on the hillside, it's not a far ride.
If you came to have dinner, I would be so gratified."
The teacher replied, "It's six o'clock, seven o'clock, you decide."
She replied, "Seven o'clock, do you like stir-fried?"
She was mystified and felt so dignified
The teacher was coming to the house where she resides
So she purified with pesticides
{*sound effect: chemicals sprayed*}
Called her friends up nationwide
{*sound effect: phone being dialed*}
Some of her friends were tongue-tied they felt so glorified
She made steamed fish, baked fish, fish that was fried
Soup, steamed vegetables, potato salad on the side
{*sound effect: food cooking*}
You could smell the bread in the oven far and wide
Natural juices and water purified
Organic fruits brought from the countryside
with silver forks and knives placed side by side
{*sound effect: silverware clinks*}
You could not be dissatisfied;
looking out the window staring at the mountainside,
you would have died
6:59 she's swollen with pride
As the moment intensified, there's a knock from outside
{*sound effect: door knocking*}
She opens the door, for the teacher has arrived
{*sound effect: door creaks open*}
But to her surprise, it was a bum who cried
"Please, I smelt the bread from outside!
One piece," and then she replied
"The teacher is coming, he's soon to have arrived.
You're making me look bad, come on now, step aside!"
The bum then replied,
"When I say I'm hungry I haven't lied.
Give me some of that chicken that you just fried."
{*sound effect: food cooking*}
She replied, "Chicken - fried?
No that's for the teacher, you're not purified"
Then she slammed the door and went back inside
{*sound effect: door closes*}
Sat on the couch with the TV Guide
She looked at the clock, it was 7:09, then 7:30;
he still hasn't arrived
Eight o'clock, she's on the downside
Nine o'clock, by now she's teary-eyed
She's pissed off and her anger multiplied
She cried, then fell asleep dissatisfied
Next day she woke up, and was preoccupied
with meeting the mystical teacher who lied
Where could he hide?
She ran down by the seaside
{*sound effect: seagulls*}
He was there teaching about - false pride
"You lied!" she replied, "You lied!
You said you'd be there at seven o'clock, you lied!"
He replied, "No I have not lied.
I came at 6:59, and you told me to move aside.
I asked for bread and the chicken that was fried.
{*sound effect: food cooking*}
And you said, that I wasn't purified."
She replied, "I wasn't notified!
I had no idea that you was the bum that cried!"
And the teacher sighed, then replied,
"This concludes our lesson on false pride."

you never come big you come small like an elf
you eat good food so you get good health
but as you grow up you see the bible on the shelf
so you pick it up fe learn and you try to see the light
but everyone you read about happens to be white
so if Jesus is white and his father is Jah
then Jah must be white cuz white man is betta
this is the work of satan egotystical bo
and negative psychological ya know
it was the church that made every man see
the blackman is supposed to be in slavery
so after he make the dough and cash off we
he says he wants to repent and live righteosly
but him still have the bible and him not change it back
cause if he change it back it would be strictly black
in every posse bible there is one simple fact
Jah the creator is yes coming back
and when he come back he comes strictly black
blacker than blacker than blacker than black

I came as Moses, they couldn't follow my commandments
I came as Solomon, to a people that was lost
I came as Jesus, but they nailed me to a cross
I came as Harriet Tubman, I put the truth to Sojourner
Other times, I had to come as Nat Turner
They tried to burn me, lynch me and starve me
So I had to come back as Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley
They tried to harm me, I used to be Malcolm X

Artist: Boogie Down Productions/krs-one
Album: Ghetto Music - The Blueprint of Hip-Hop
Song: Why is That?
Typed by: OHHLA Webmaster DJ Flash

Verse One

The day begins, with a grin
And a prayer to excuse my sins
I can walk anywhere I choose
Cause everybody listens to the B.D.P. crew
We're not here for glamour or fashion
But here's the question I'm askin
Why is it young black kids taught {flashin?}
They're only taught how to read, write, and act
It's like teachin a dog to be a cat
You don't teach white kids to be black
Why is that? Is it because we're the minority?
Well black kids follow me
Genesis chapter eleven verse ten
Explains the geneology of Chem
Chem was a black man, in Africa
If you repeat this fact they can't laugh at ya
Genesis fourteen verse thirteen
Abraham steps on the scene
Being a descendent of Chem which is a fact
Means, Abraham too was black
Abraham born in the city of a black man
Called Nimrod grandson of Kam
Kam had four sons, one was named Canaan
Here, let me do some explaining
Abraham was the father of Isaac
Isaac was the father of Jacob
Jacob had twelve sons, for real
And these, were the children of Isreal
According to Genesis chapter ten
Egyptains descended from {Hahm,Kam}
Six hundred years later, my brother, read up
Moses was born in Egypt
In this era black Egyptians weren't right
They enslaved black Isrealites
Moses had to be of the black race
Because he spent fourty years in Pharoah's place
He passed as the Pharoah's grandson
So he had to look just like him
Yes my brothers and sisters take this here song
Yo, correct the wrong
The information we get today is just wack
But ask yourself, why is that?


Verse Two

The age of the ignorant rapper is done
Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone
The stereotype must be lost
That love and peace and knowledge is soft
Do away with that and understand one fact
For love, peace must attack
And attack real strong, stronger than war
To conquer it and its law
Mental pictures, stereotypes and fake history
Reinforces mystery
And when mystery is reinforced
That only means that knowledge has been lost
When you know who you really are
Peace and knowledge shines like a star
I'm only showin you a simple fact
It Takes A Nation of MILLIONS to Hold Us people Back
Which is wack, but we can correct that
Teach and learn what it is to be black
Cause they're teachin birds to be a cat
But ask yourself homeboy, why is that?

Hah hah hah, you must be KIDDING
For years they kept God hidden
Look for God in self, not in what's written
Turn this up and listen

If your slavemaster wasn't a Christian you wouldn't be a Christian
*whip cracks*
If your slavemaster wasn't a Christian you wouldn't be a Christian
*whip cracks*
If your slavemaster wasn't a Christian YOU wouldn't be a Christian!!!
*whip cracks twice*
Your whole culture's missing
Hebrews are African, see they originated Judaism
The belief in one God is monotheism, see the truth is not hard
All you gotta know is the facts
When religion mixes with politics... it ALL GETS WACK

You gotta know your history, or they'll tell you that God is a mystery
And when you're born, you're born in sin
That's bullshit. That's BULLSHIT!
They're only saying you can't win
You can't succeed, you can't acheive
Don't ask about God, just sit there and believe
Well I ain't tryin to hear that lesson
Cause one thing I know
Cause one thing I know
Cause one thing I know is that the truth can always be questioned
YEAH that's how I'm livin
Ask and ye shall be given
When you're lyin, hah hah hah, you got no answers
You got handclappers and a WHOLE lotta dancers
in the church or sanctuary

They all forgot Jesus was a revolutionary
They all forgot Jesus was a revolutionary
They all forgot Jesus was a revolutionary!!!
that hung out with criminals
I would say read the Bible but it's not the original
So it's really misleading
If you don't know the history of the author you don't know what you're reading
If you DON'T know the history of the author you don't know what you've read

You can't taste the nectar
That answers the question on why I do lectures
Cause where every MC claims to be the teacher, I be DISSIN professors
Keep that Bible on your shelf
God helps those that help themselves
Stop reading from a dead book

Stop reading from a dead book for a live God!
You know how stupid you look!
God reads the Bible with you
You both read the language of the devil that's dissing you
What can the next man do
with a Bible in his hand that you yourself can't do?
Whether Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, or Jew
Burning candles don't get you down with the universal crew

So why you dress up on Easter and worship a false Mary
that looks like Mona Lisa? Hah hah, damn you lost
On Christ-mas, what's the purpose of Santa Claus? *bells jingle*
On Christ-mas, what's the purpose of Santa Claus? *bells keep jingling*
On Christmas what's the purpose of Santa Claus!!!
Or Saint Nickalaus, I'm sick of this wickedness
All revolutionaries check this

I'm not synthetic
I'm not anti-Christian, anti-Muslim, anti-Buddhist, or anti-Semetic
But I will set it off in the temple
Cause the real holy place is mental
Re: KRS ONE
February 14, 2005 09:44PM
So you thinkin about bein a concious MC
Well you gotta love God and you got to live free
You got to see the life that others can't see
You got to be the person that others can't be
You can't be a S-L-A, V-E
If you sayin to yourself, "This may be me"
Then you know goin in that you work against sin
Your very skills will kill the demons within
So don't expect respect from slaves and hoes
Nor the slavemaster's video shows
Nor the rap mags, you know how it go
Especially black mags, you know they don't know
Just go to the crowd that you know will need you
Cause NOTHING compares to the respect of the people

a guy bumped into me and
and he said.. he said, "Yo Kris!
How is it that you stay in this music?
You know, this rap music ex-specially for SO.. LONG.. SO.. LONG"
I said, "Well you know years ago I made a deal with the Goddess"
He said, "The Goddess?"
I said, "Well yeah, you might know her as God
but I know her as the Goddess"
The universal mother
The mother of everything you see in existance
I ax-ked her for assistance
in lyrical persistance
and she gave it to me, under one condition
She said, "I'll give you the gift
but use the gift to uplift"
I said, "Okay mom!"

So I tell you the truth, really
Me nah gon' need nuttin else
but health, wealth, and knowledge of myself
Me nah gon' need nuttin else
but health, wealth, and knowledge of myself

In the beginning was the word, the word was made flesh
Knowledge K. Reigns R. Supreme S.
Some of us guess while others of us are blessed
Take heed to the word, that I manifest
I manifest the future, the present, followed by the past
Everything in nature, rules by kickin ass

I can't see how they wouldn't be considering having him at this point if anyone is reading the posts. Seems to me he's had a significant impact on many reggae fans that also dabble in the hip-hop. He's one MC that know the roots of his trade go back to JA and acknowledges it in his music. Can the Jungle brothers tag along?

Beef, what a relief
When will this poisonous product cease?
This is another public service announcement
You can believe it, or you can doubt it
Let us begin now with the cow
The way it gets to your plate and how
The cow doesn't grow fast enough for man
So through his greed he makes a faster plan
He has drugs to make the cow grow quicker
Through the stress the cow gets sicker
Twenty-one different drugs are pumped
Into the cow in one big lump
So just before it dies, it cries
In the slaughterhouse full of germs and flies
Off with the head, they pack it, drain it, and cart it
And there it is, in your local supermarket
Red and bloody, a corpse, neatly packed
And you wonder about heart attacks?
Come on now man let's be for real
You are what you eat is the way I feel
But, the Food and Drug Administration
Will tell you meat is the perfect combination
See cows live under fear and stress
Trying to think what's gonna happen next
Fear and stress can become a part of you
In your cells and blood, this is true
So when the cow is killed, believe it
You preserve those cells, you freeze it
Thaw it out with the blood and season it
Then you sit down and begin eatin it
In your body, it's structure becomes your structure
All the fear and stress of another
Any drug is addictive by any name
Even drugs in meat, they are the same
The FDA has America strung out
On drugs in beef no doubt
So if you think that what I say is a bunch of crock
Tell yourself you're gonna try and stop
Eatin meat and you'll see you can't compete
It's the number one drug on the street
Not crack, cause that was made for just black
But brown beef, for all American teeth
Life brings life and death brings death
Keep on eatin the dead and what's left
Absolute disease and negative
Read the book 'How to Eat to Live'
By Elijah Muhammad, it's a brown paperback
For anybody, either white or black
See how many cows must be pumped up fatter
How many rats gotta fall in the batter
How many chickens that eat **** you eat
How much high blood pressure you get from pig feet
See you'll consume, the FDA could care less
They'll sell you donkey meat and say it's
FRESH! For nineteen-ninety, you SUCKERS

krs-one was one of the few back then to make it to vinyl and single-handedly rock both ends of the knot; hip hop and roots reggae. his partnership with just ice, just ice vibeing with mantronix and t-la rock, and then krs vibing with the mostly unknown out here mc known as brother D off of the clappers label who were doing the truest yard roots music ala sons of creation- feeling down a yard, much like the bullwackies label...
again, sierra, want a tip to bring more quality folks to the weekend, book krs one and afrikka bambaataa as a DJ for one of the nights or to gig and ride with the sound system, likely to be more history made with this night, this kind of line up is most certain to go down at one of the festivals...

Time and time again, as I pick up the pen
as my thoughts emerge, these are those words
I glance at the paper to know what's going on
someone's doing wrong, the story goes on
Mary Lue's had a baby someone else decapitated
the drama of the world shouldn't keep us so frustrated
I look, but it doesn't coincide with my books
social studies when I speak upon political crooks
It's just the presidents, and all the money they spent
all the things they invent and how the house is so immaculate
They paid missiles, my family's eating gristle
then they get upset when the press blows the whistle
Of course the main profiles are kept low
you temper with some jobs, now the press is controlled
Not only newspapers, but every single station
you only get to hear the president is on vacation
But ehrm, stay calm, there's no need for alarm
You say "go back" to your mom, and you're off to Vietnam
You shoot to kill, come back and you're a veteran
but how many veterans are out there pedaling?
There's no telling, 'cause they continue selling
As quiet as it's kept, I won't go into depth
You can talk about Nigeria, people used to laugh at ya.
Now I take a look, I say "USA for Africa?!"

Huh.
What's the solution, to stop all this confusion?
Rewrite the constitution, change the drug which you're using
Rewrite the constitution or the emancipation proclamation
we fight inflation, yet the president's still on vacation

BDP posse!
I say: one two three, the crew is called BDP
And if you wanna go to the tip top
stop the violence in the hip-hop, Y-O

This might sound a little strange to you
well here's the reason I came to you
We gotta put our heads together, and stop the violence
Cause real bad boys move in silence
When you're in a club, you come to chill out
not watch someones blood just spill out
That's what these other people want to see
another race fight endlessly
You know we're being watched, you know we're being seen
Some wish to destroy this scene called hip-hop
But I won't drop
not I or Scott LaRock
Now here is the message that we bring today:
hip-hop will surely decay
if we as a people don't stand up and say:
"Stop the violence!"
"Stop the violence!"
"Stop the violence!"
"Stop the violence!"
"Stop the violence!"

I say: one two three, the crew is called BDP
And if you wanna go to the tip top
stop the violence in the hip-hop, Y-O

BDP and me
we step into the party top celebrity
Say when we're coming to dance, we never have to pay a fee
Cause that's where we got R-E-S-P-E-C-T
I have this one wife, her name is Miss Melody
I know I'm from the Bronx, she from the Brooklyn posse
I tell ya look a little like this, then I tell you some that I
Sometimes I got my gear on, sometimes I wear a hat
Sometimes I'm in a Mercedes and sometimes I'm in a plain
Sometimes I find myself upon the number two train
Some people look at me and see negativity
some people look at me and see positivity
But when I see myself I see creativity
So if I can create, well then I make some money
Sha man, just put your hands up if you're out here gettin' paid
Sha man, just put your hands up if you're out here gettin' paid
One two three, the crew is called BDP
And if you wanna go to the tip top
stop the violence in the hip-hop, Y-O
Re: KRS ONE
March 04, 2005 09:44PM
I've been taught to respect my elders and behave
Even if when they were young they sold slaves
Truth and understandin' is what I crave
In the land of the thief, home of the slave
Turn your page to a brief demonstration
Cos now in '90 it's strictly information I'm givin'
Teachin' on a regular basis
Today's lecture is about The Racist
We're not out to exaggerate or diss him
But show the symptoms and facts of racism
Understand The Racist ain't equal
There's about five different types of racist people
First of the five different types of cases
Is the individual brought up racist
Here you have young men and women
Brought up in the Great White Way opinion
This opinion introduced by the parent
To the civilised becomes transparent
The civilised man could look through the faces
Make the analysis and see The Racist
Number two case which y'all must hear
Is the individual racist out of fear
Here you have people that fear the African
And conjure up new ways of trappin' him
Number three is the unconscious racist
Not knowin' they're racist they invade your spaces
They say, "I'm not a racist, I'm not a bigot"
Yet they allow it to go on and won't admit it
Number four is the money racist
The one that used the topics of sheer economics
They say, "Owning a business isn't for the black man
He don't want that", yet they went and took his land
Damn, that's like a rock in a hard place
You don't have your land yet this ain't your space
America was built by every other race
Except the European that runs this place
What a waste, America's doomed
To be overthrown by the righteous real soon
But last but not least racial prejudice
Is the black man speakin' out of ignorance
Whitey this and Ching-Chow that
Is not how the intelligent man acts
You can't blame the whole white race
For slavery, cos this ain't the case
A large sum of white people died with black
Tryin' hard to fight racial attacks
The media wants you to think that no whites
Really fought and died for Civil Rights
But once we have a true sense of history
You'll see this too as a mystery
If black and white didn't argue the most
They could clearly see the government's screwin' 'em both

You hate this, rigid, metaphysical, criminal mided poet
Don't blow it, if it's lost, I'll show it
If its torn, I'll sew it
It's kinda off beat yeah I know it
The styles I originate, I don't wait for fate
I practice love not hate
But MCs get ache
They wait and hesitate on the act
But always can debate on that trivial fact
This is KRS and I'm black!
Same color as the brothers in Iraq
War is wack, especially when you die in vain
Bush invaded Panama, how can you really place blame on Hussein?
Regardless of the name, the insane economic game has got to change
Like a range rover over the plains
I come equipped to rip ****
Not ignorant, intelligent - artistic - inquisitive - poisitive and negative
The sedative is the poetry I give
How yah live KRS is in the house!

Right into the ground they can't show you where god is

Yeah, now who do you salute? The barbarian teaches us to hate our roots!
Despise our culutre, look for culture in another man's existance

I lived in a spot called Millbrooke Projects
The original Criminal Minded rap topic
With twenty cents in my pocket I saw the light
If you're young gifted and black, you got no rights
Your only true right, is a right to a fight
and not a fair fight, I wake up wonderin who died last night
Everyone and everything is at war
Makin my poetic expression hardcore
I ain't afraid to say it, and many can't get with it
At times in my life, I was a welfare recipient
I ate the free cheese, while the church said believe
and went to school everyday, like a god damn fool
Well anyway, here I am, chillin at the party
Brothers lookin at me like they wanna kill somebody
A cypher manifested in the center of the jam
I got to show these wack rappers really who I am
It's me against them, so I clear the phlegm
and wage the war, hardcore to the end
For someone lookin inside, yeah from the out
it seems like disrespect is what rap is all about
But hip-hop as a culture, is really what we give it
But sometimes the culture contradicts how we live it
Cause every black kid lives two and three lives
The city's a jungle, only the strong will survive

Reality, ain't always the truth
Rhymes Equal Actual Life, In The Youth

I believe that if you're teaching history
Filled with straight up facts no mystery
Teach the student what needs to be taught
'Cause Black and White kids both take shorts
When one doesn't know about the other ones' culture
Ignorance swoops down like a vulture
'Cause you don't know that you ain't just a janitor
No one told you about Benjamin Banneker
A brilliant Black man that invented the almanac
Can't you see where KRS is coming at
With Eli Whitney, Haile Selassie
Granville Woods made the walkie-talkie
Lewis Latimer improved on Edison
Charles Drew did a lot for medicine
Garrett Morgan made the traffic lights
Harriet Tubman freed the slaves at night
Madame CJ Walker made a straightenin comb
But you won't know this is you weren't shown
The point I'm gettin' at it it might be harsh
'Cause we're just walkin' around brainwashed
So what I'm sayin' is not to diss a man
we need the 89 school system
One that caters to a Black return because
