Krs-One: Welcome to the Temple, class is in session. Me, I'm the teacher---asking all questions. Question 1 - What am I being?

Greenie: Y-Y-Y-Y-You a rapper!

Krs-One: Wrong! I'm emceeing...

Greenie: What's the difference?

Krs-One: Well, it's the unity; The rapper is corporate, the emcee is community.

Greenie: Community rap?

Krs-One: It's something like that... For emceein'... But the question was...
'What am I being? "

Greenie: What are you being?

Krs-One: Can anyone answer this? What are you seeing? Can anyone answer Kris?

Greenie: When you say "What are you being?-- Does that mean you're BEING your emceeing?"

Krs-One: Yes! But what I'm being is hip-hop... That's what's really gettin' respect on your block...

Greenie: Hip-Hop! ?

Krs-One: That's right-- Hip-Hop... Last of the human skills...

Greenie: Ahhhh... Hip-Hop...

Krs-One: Let's go further... With this pre-meditated worder... Kris Parker, the teacher-- I know you hearda... All the sciences, makin' instruments out of appliances, showin' you what self-reliance is...

Greenie:... But whose rhyme this is? Why's whack emcees in our face like sinuses? You positive like plus, Kris, and they minuses-- Ideas are going through my mind like a Catscan... I'm not a white emcee who pretends to be a Black man... I was writing rhymes when they invented Pac-Man... Now my rhyme'z is tight like that suit on Batman... You kept it real, Kris, you came out as a rosta; I'm comin' out controversial... Talkin' 'bout Schvartze... Rappers are whack today... But I don't need to dis' one... My rhyme style is this one...
