Boogie Down Productions

Boogie Down Productions was a hip hop group that was originally composed of KRS-One, D-Nice, and DJ Scott La Rock. DJ Scott La Rock was murdered on August 27, 1987, months after the release of BDP's debut album, Criminal Minded. The name of the group, Boogie Down, derives from a nickname for the South Bronx section of The Bronx, one of the five boroughs of New York City. The group pioneered the fusion of dancehall reggae and hip hop music and their debut LP Criminal Minded contained frank descriptions of life in the South Bronx of the late 1980s thus setting the stage for what would eventually become gangsta rap. more »

They got all them gangsta lookalike  know why'know 
But you know what? 
All them fraud magazines I'm tired of 
I'm tired of us not bein on no covers 
But you know what? 
We rock the streets  ANYWAY 
regardless to what anybody say 
Well well  yo yo  I tell you 
As long as you rip up the streets 
you don't GOTTA have no press, youknowhatI'msayin? 
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 
The Final Call got it goin on, youknowhatI'msayin? 
Yeah 
I mean, if you really want to check out somethin black 
I mean, all these other magazines, they got 
They can only show you the light-skinned girl 
or the light-skinned guy, and all of that, yaknowhatI'msayin? 
I ain't with all that nonsense 
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 
cause we just slammin everywhere we go 
Yo, BDP been rockin for like six years now 
Six long hard rough years, youknowhatI'msayin? 
And, and for some reason 
everytime these COMMERCIAL acts come out 
they get the cover the first.. 
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 
in any of these magazines 
Hey Kris, I got the answer to ALL your problems 
What's that? 
Just interview yourself 
Interview myself? 
Yeah! 
Aight check it out 
Kick it! 

[KRS-One] 
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
