  • It's not about a salary, it's all about reality
    I'm all in the academy, exposin all the fallacies
    Not who other rappers be, FEW can go on after me
    I know the city's trappin me, watch 'em like my calories
    Cats that wanna battle me, they learn of the catastrophe
    Don't bring your rappin back to me
    NEVER will you ever challenge me with what you chat to me
    SEALED is my anatomy, I do it lyrical mastery, KRS - OH!
    The time has arrived as your wake up call
    When I'm rhymin, I'm obliged to shake up all
    It be a claat, this will drop the mic and take a ball
    Too many part-time rappers that fake and stall
    When you see KRS, you will say I'm tall
    Cause no I don't take shorts, not at all
    Philosopher, not some trick in the mall
    {Before rock met rap, I was sicker than all}
    I MASTERED THIS! FEW rappers goin after Kris
    Thirteen albums, you do the math on this!
    Obviously, knowledge you have to get
    What the ignorant don't know, hell they'll laugh at it
    All my college students you know you have to get
    Your receipt, I mean degree, it's only facts I spit
    Take it, cause everyone ain't gonna make it
    If you're hearin my voice, you have a choice now TAKE IT!

    [Chorus: Will.I.Am (KRS)]
    Just take it, you need it
    We got way more in store, believe me
    Consume it, {inhale} breathe it
    (TAKE T-TAKE TAKE T-TAKE T-TAKE TAKE IT!)
    Just take it, you need it
    We got way more in store, believe me
    Consume it, {inhale} breathe it
    (TAKE T-TAKE TAKE T-TAKE T-TAKE TAKE IT!)

    [KRS-One]
    I rhyme, for the inner-city
    No I don't ask for no praise or no pity
    I got the power, you want to stay with me
    Further down this lyrical road, it gets tricky
    Stay with me! A different type of rapper emceein
    Seeing is believing but believing is seeing
    And seeing is agreein with the truth of your higher being
    So when I'm rhymin, I take time with the minds I'm freein
    The teacher is teachin, the student is seekin
    Them hookers be creepin instead of a book on the weekend
    I'm lookin to nukin 'em all in the dust
    They reject knowledge and without the anointing, you rust
    Laugh if you must, but trust that I see you naked
    You need what I'm givin, but you front and you fakin
    So like I stated, everybody ain't gonna make it
    But if you're hearin my voice, you have a choice now TAKE IT!

    [Chorus]

    [KRS-One]
    I'll keep on bringin it, singin it 'til your ears is ringin
    And steamin, gleamin the dream and true emceein with meaning
    And see men, we all fiendin for the cream and the screamin
    A demon got us believing screamin rhymin for NO reason!
    Every weekend we weaken, discipline is what we needin
    But we too busy freakin to understand divine speaking
    KRS and BBE, with Will 1X and Phife Dawg, you'll see me
    OH!! OH!! It's the real hip-hop
    KRS-One, shout out to Scott La Rock
    We do it from here to there, every city, every block
    And now it's about time we STOP!
