That's right

As long as you stay true to the streets

All these wannabe black, black, black

Black nuttin - you know, chewin all that black

Cause they ain't really reportin nuttin on no black nuttin

They want to be right, and they want to be, rap, and..

That's why I read The Final Call

Ha hah, we won't name any names

But they know who they are though!

Ha hah, knowhatI'msayin? Watch yourself

I don't know why we can't get no covers though!

Yo Kris, I don't why

Six long hard rough years, youknowhatI'msayin?

And, and for some reason

everytime these COMMERCIAL acts come out

they could drop a twelve inch single

and they be snatchin up the cover

You know why? Cause they don't want to deal with reality

Question: Why everything you do is fresh?

Answer: My name, Blastmaster KRS

Question: You only write reality, why?

Answer: No time to waste, our people are going to die

Question: Going to die? Please explain this topic

Answer: Some people are using ignorance to make a profit

Question: How do we stop it?

Answer: Throw em in a jail cell and lock it

Question: Why, are people so stupid?

Answer: They got a brain and fail to use it

Question: How did it get like this?

Answer: People are more worried about ass and tits and

little bits of information

The barbarians teach us just to be barbarians in the nation

This new creation

takes on the manifestation of the Board of Education

Question: What's the solution?

Answer: Organized, revolution

Question: Revolution implies killing..

Answer: Whether you fight or talk, the blood is

STILL SPILLING, and we're chilling

Thinking of our history as Elmer Fudd

Everything, black people got in this country

they got through shedding their blood, word!

But they ain't gonna print all that

They too concerned about what you wearin

what kind of Benz you got, or BM

But I think this year

since we knockin all these sucker frauds out,

you might get some press

But when you talk that consciousness -

nobody wants to listen

Word up, it's a crying shame though

I, ah-I tell you this though

if I was talkin sex and all that nonsense

I'd get ALL the covers

Yo Kris, just chill, and interview yourself

That's what I like to hear

Aight aight check it out

[KRS-One]

Everything you learned in law school

can be taught, when you're six years old

But they make you wait and wait and wait and wait

and wait, and of course, the information, is then sold

But what if you can't afford to pay?

You walk around ignorant all day!

The pimp don't care, it's really your decision

Kick up that money hoe!! Oh, I mean tuition

They be dissin, that ass you be kissin

Sittin in a room with a liar, and you must listen

Question: Who are you dissin?

Answer: The concept that turns a rapper, into a dancer

Question: Are you really all that fresh?

Answer: Yes, yes.. YES!

Or, "si," to the people speakin Spanish

You better make use of KRS, before he vanish

But all these magazines'll vanish before you will

They better start printin the REAL REAL hip-hop

from BDP

Yo yo but check it out Will

They ain't interested in no real hip-hop

They ain't interested in graffiti art, breakdancin

and real rap music, they just want to know where the money is

Why why why?

Yo I think some of these journalists

need to start gettin punched in they face

Hah, I got a big fist
