Yo, wassup Blastmaster KRS One, this jam is kickin'
Word, yo what up D Nice? Yo wassup Scott La Rock?
Yo man we chillin' this funky fresh jam
I wanna tell you a little somethin' about us
We're the Boogie Down Productions crew
And due to the fact that no one else out there knew what time it was
We have to tell you a little story about where we come from

South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx

Many people tell me this style is terrific
It is kinda different but let's get specific
KRS One specialized in music
I'll only use this type of style when I choose it
Party people in the place to be, KRS One attacks
Ya got dropped off MCA 'cos the rhymes you wrote was wack
So you think that hiphop had it's start out in Queensbridge
If you popped that junk up in the Bronx you might not live
'Cos you're in

South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx

I came with Scott La Rock to express one thing
I am a teacher and others are kings
If that's a title they earn, well it's well deserved, but
Without a crown, see, I still burn
You settle for a pebble not a stone like a rebel
KRS One is the holder of a boulder, money folder
You want a fresh style let me show ya

Now, way back in the days when hiphop began
With CoQue, La Rock, Kool Herc and then Bam
Beat boys ran to the latest jam
But when it got shot up they went home and said, "Damn"

There's got to be a better way to hear our music every day
Beat boys gettin' blown away but comin' outside anyway"
They tried again outside in Cedar Park
Power from a street light made the place dark
But yo, they didn't care, they turned it out
I know a few understand what I'm talkin' about

Remember Bronx River rollin' thick
With Kool DJ Red Alert and Chuck Chillout on the mix
When Afrika Islam was rockin the jams
And on the other side of town was a kid named Flash
Patterson and Millbrook projects, Casanova all over, ya couldn't stop it
The Nine Lives Crew, the Cypress Boys
The real Rock Steady takin' out these toys
As odd as it looked, as wild as it seemed
I didn't hear a peep from a place called Queens

It was seventy six, to 1980, the dreads in Brooklyn was crazy
You couldn't bring out your set with no hiphop
Because the pistols would go, so why don't you wise up
Show all the people in the place that you are wack
Instead of tryna take out LL
You need to take your home boys off the crack
'Cos if you don't, well, then their nerves will become shot
And that would leave the job up to my own Scott La Rock and he's from

South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx

South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
South Bronx, the South, South Bronx
