    Lyrics

    [KRS-One]
    Who was the first to flash the heat on the cover?
    Who was the first crew to go against another?
    Who was the first to go acapella on a video replay?
    Who was the first to lose a DJ?
    Who was the first to teach at Yale?
    Who was the first to hit that hip-hop reggae, on the nail?
    Who was the first to say +Stop the Violence+
    And teach that real bad boys move in silence?
    You're soon to see the mind bendin rhyme weapon
    Get more busy than two-two-three-double-nine-seven
    All these rappers, swear they the best
    I know whatchu thinkin about, "Where's KRS?"
    Eighty percent of these rappers fake they {shit}
    The other twenty percent they goin upstate and {shit}
    There's no way out except knowledge and wisdom
    I got it so I spit 'em you ain't got it you gotta get 'em
    Who was the first to produce mix and write
    At the same time up in the club rockin the mic?
    Who was the first to have a DJ and a side man?
    The first to say what is hip-hop? "I AM!"
    Who was the first to produce gangster {shit}?
    Put out, gangster hits with a gangster click?
    Not no prankster (shit), Steady be, Mad Lion
    Just-Ice, Shabba Ranks and (shit)
    My Channel is Live, my only battle is Jive
    MC to MC, you won't survive
    You'll be censored cause my Crew is 2 Live
    I ascend like Christ and watch you die

    Breakers (HERE!) MC's (HERE!)
    Writers (HERE!) Beat-boxers (HERE!)
    DJ's (HERE!) Hip-Hop (HERE!)
    Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!) Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!)
    Breakers (HERE!) MC's (HERE!)
    Writers (HERE!) Beat-boxers (HERE!)
    DJ's (HERE!) Hip-Hop (HERE!)
    Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!) Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!)

    [KRS-One]
    I'm like Noah, I'm takin 'em, two by two
    I took, them and them and I'll take, you and you
    Be I'm right or be I'm wrong
    You'll see I'm tight with this mic, you should be like, "be I'm gone"
    But you still in my face Neo, I'm not your girl
    All that ice and thug life, that's not my world
    I'm the teacher, but you still can't see
    Cause while you respect Tupac, Tupac respected me
    Another thing; don't ever show me another ring
    Remember you Rudy Ray Moore, I'm Martin Luther King
    Everything you bring sounds horrendous
    You need repentance, 'fore I take attendance

    Breakers (HERE!) MC's (HERE!)
    Writers (HERE!) Beat-boxers (HERE!)
    DJ's (HERE!) Hip-Hop (HERE!)
    Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!) Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!)

    [Hum's melody]

    Breakers (HERE!) MC's (HERE!)
    Writers (HERE!) Beat-boxers (HERE!)
    DJ's (HERE!) Hip-Hop (HERE!)
    Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!) Hip-Hop (RIGHT HERE!)
