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 »

[KRS One] 
YES! Chillin in the place right now 
Harmony and Heather be	 Ms. Melodie 
DJ Jamal Ski DJ Kenny Parker 
And of course we are gettin MUCH DARKER 
Because the Africanism is in EFFECT 
So check it out MAN! 
And try not to bite the lyrics 

So come in now with the chorus of the day 
Because we don't play 

Chorus: KRS One 
It takes 7 Dee Jays to control a sound 
It takes one soundsystem playin music loud 
It takes 7 Dee Jays to control a sound 
But D-Nice, you're gonna make the party live 

Bust it, yo 
I love to diss whores, I love to do tours 
Makin young ladies just drop their drawers 
and when they drop em, I don't kick em, check it 
Like the Fat Boys said, I "Brrrrrrrr, STICK EM!" 
From that point on, I say we're on for the night 
But I love it when the girl just call me D-Nice 
And if she gets bold and try to ask for a fee 
I say, "Please hoe, it's all about me" 

[Heather B] 
It's not the star spangled banner or the red white and blue 
but the underground sister from the Edutainment crew 
So what you do, is back up if you work for Bush 
Cause all the Presidential prison pushin politicians 
gotta get MUSHED, gimme back my land you SUCKA 
You beat down my father and you raped my mother Africa 
And now you want to laugh at her 
I feel like pickin up a razor, and slashin ya 
Snatch up Margaret Thatcher and unmaskin her 
to find out she's a man without a manicure 
Go to President DeKlerk without askin her 
and BUST SOME SHOTS for South Africa 
And if Margaret jumps in, I start bashin her 
for every freedom fighter start crashin her 
And then Heather be	 will get nastier 
and pull out my two shot derringer 
Cause yes, Heather be	 comes classier 
Cause Heather be	, Jamal-Ski, and KRS the trainer 
makes up the dope crew called, Edutainer 
You'll find the law of balance on the two turntables 
So look out for the FRESH Edutainer label 

Biddi-by-by, by, by-by-by, Jamal-Ski, ki-ki-kiyah! 

[Jamal-Ski] {best guess} 
Jump up and be upon the mic and stick em 
Come follow me the man me work for the mic 
They call me top celebrity 
Me bigga me badda mad hatta me callin it well and dead-ly 
Me nah got no nine millimeter, me not want ya uzi 
But I kill run a leggin on Misses Dancee 
BLAM! BLAM! We comin out and yes you are the don 
You hold for the mic upon they call me lyrical champion 
Me bigga me black, me know if me chat, ya know me and ya done 
Me read from Genesis unto Relevation 
Me nice and into England, nice it up in Ja-pan 
Me have armitage, me have enough stylee 
Me whyla, grab the mic andna, sing to me, andna 

Come in de dance with the NUFF stylee 
And KRS-One, now comin in with Harmony 

Now I'm comin to the dancehall, everybody call 
follow me follow me, Sister Harmony 
I perk, perk, perk, perk you up-a 
You don't need no coffee, let me, fill your cup-a 
Perk, perk, perk, perk you up-a 
You don't need no coffee, let me, fill your cup 
I'm a, stimulator, administrator 
Activator, initiator 
Captivator, originator 
Perculator, perk you up 
It's Harmony, the minor key 
That moves with the rhythm passionately 
I ain't ego trippin I do it humbly 
Cause everybody's bound to hear the sound of BDP 
It's easy, for me you see 
I ain't the one or the two, I'm the three 
And three (badda-ba-ba-by-by) it's the magic numberrr 

Chorus: KRS-One 
It takes 7 Dee Jays to control a sound 
It takes one soundsystem playin music loud 
It takes 7 Dee Jays to control a sound 
But KRS, you're gonna make the party live 

Well now it's Blastmaster KRS-One 
When we come in the dance, my lyrics not done 
Pray to my father cause yes me are the son 
Cause you are the guide and my pro-tection 
Any sucker MC must run come 
Kyan't test the Boogie Down Production man 
Move ya ras claat, BDP stand alone 
1990 lyrics 'pon the microphone 
Every posse KNOW we come in the dance 
we teach reality-ta-tee an' 
reality, reality-ta-ta-tee 
We nah deal with sickness and negativity 
We come up in the dance in the ruff stylee 
In the discipline KRS-One is just a flyer 
Come up in the dance with my man called Edi Ayah 
On the con-sole we have the man D-Square 
Come up in the dance, and him must comb him hair-ah 
Come up in the dance, and me let off a clip-ah 
at George Bush, cause him D my nigga 
KRS-One, him the President come 
The crew called BDP, Melo-di-di-de-de 

[Ms. Melodie] 
Comin live and direct in full effect 
Ms. M-E-L-O-D-I-E on the mic check 
Well I'm up in your face like the wind from a blizzard 
Got my wrap around your throat, like you're chokin on a gizzard 
If someone said, well damn, who is it? 
It's Ms. Melodie, the real, so get with it 

Fatalistic pessimistic, a big conspiracy 
The way they treat blacks, in white society 
It's erection rebellion, revolution uprisin 
Takin no shorts, because JAH is guidin 
Government they try to manage and rule 
Dictate, regulate, and perpetrate the fool 
That's why I search, explore, inspect, investigate 
Drop down knowledge, and KILL dub plates 

Kill dub plate-ah mi say kill dub plate-ah 
Kill dub plate-ah mi say kill dub plate-ah 
KRS-One, boy, must come fi straighter 
Comin up and doin the dance but not from eighty-eight-ah 
Every posse know me come in the dance not later 
Come in early, every posse captivator 
KRS-One, and enough herb gate-ah 
Come up in the dance, and we cannot debate-ah 
KRS-One, them call me KRS-One-ah 
KRS-One, me come to nice up any ja-a-am 
KRS-One, them call me KRS-One-ah 
KRS-One, me come to nice up any jam
