Metaphysical style, spiritual style, the ORIGINAL style, ha Yes.. let's do it
[Chorus] you can never give up, you should never give up you can never give up, we can never give up you can never give up, you can never give up you should never give up, we can never give up, you can never give up
Yeah, yeah Y'all don't really know about the KRS rap Y'all don't really about why we stay trapped Y'all don't really know hip-hop ain't rap But let me tell you how we can get it all back First realize givin up is wack Say to yourself I can never be wack Then realize that we must go back And the reason you can't seem to get on track is you, keep, buying, HOES, simple and plain You, keep, buying, HOES, all y'all know my name And how I get down and move around I've already been to the proving ground In conscious rap, who rule the sound The question is are you down?
Look - KRS-One, I've learned already Everything they doin is temporary No matter how big you live You still the creation of a music executive And when you get old no matter what you did They throw you away and they pimp your kid Yeah kids, on the TV whylin You know why we got racial profilin? Cause you, keep, buying, HOES, simple and plain You, keep, buying, HOES, all y'all know my name So there in the future we'll look back And then we will see we were under attack But it'll be too late, the loss'll be too great You'll see, just wait!
C'mon, c'mon, yeah c'mon You see how they shuttin down KRS-One Cause I'm not sexy, thuggin or dumb Ask yourself Why they only promotin criminal activity and nothin else? On the videos and on the radio Teachin our kids which way to go And the way that they tell our kids to go If you listen, heads right straight to prison While you, keep, buying, HOES, simple and plain You, keep, buying, HOES, y'all better peep the game You got to release that temptation Get a brand new affirmation Your life is what you make 'em Peace, salaam alaikum
