"The DJ"
[feat. KRS-One]


[Intro: KRS - talking]
Yes, KRS. Revolution. You know what this is
We back in the building, straight up
Yo, look at 'em. Look at 'em runnin'
Look at 'em runnin' already. Out the door
Let's go. This is raw. Y'all know what time this is

[Verse 1:]
When KRS-One comes to spit
You DJ's with no breaks, I don't wanna hear that shit
The radio?
I can't even bare that shit
Gucci/Prada, I don't even wear that shit
I'm in the streets, holla, but y'all fear that shit
We blue collar DJ's, we're here to rip
900 number, we got two pairs of it
MP3 shit, I'm not sharin' it
Classic samples and loops, we not clearin' it
The life of DJ, there's no comparin' it
Many wanna be but many more are scared of it
Before they start they already plan to quit
The music? They no longer fans of it
They wanna use it, so they can get a grand and shit
The program director is handin' 'em strips
Make 'em play wack shit and lie from they lips!

[talking: DJ Premier]
You see, there's times like this.
When you need real motherfuckers like us to let you know what a DJ is
Listen man, I gotta pay you to play my shit? Check this out
My shit's already hot so I ain't gotta pay for shit
You can't tell a DJ what to do. We tell you what's really good
DJ Revolution, I got you. Fuck these clowns

[Verse 2:]
So, you wanna be a DJ live on the set?
Can't be travellin' back again, you should not forget
The beats in the street and you have been elected
To carry the tradition of records being selected
Check it
Your job is to break new records
Go to the club, get on man and wreck shit
Seemless mixin', blends undetected
The true DJ and MC are connected
Like me and DJ Revolution
Look at what we usin'
Beats and rhymes, no confusion
Who's in the house?
If my crew's in the house?
100's of people be groovin' it out
Cuttin', mixin', scratchin' non-stop
Party rockin', two hours non-stop
If you got Serrato
Bravo
But if you can't cut vinyl records, you won't be able to follow
Me
A true MC, not a new MC
Fuck the computer it's you and me
And the crowd
And oh yes they want it loud
At the tombstone of Scott La Rock, I vow
Never to let a wack DJ mix me
And I'll be spittin' this way past 60
Ain't nothin' changed but the format
Funk, soul, jungle, maaaan, you gotta play all that
Mix it up, not lick it up
The mix, a DJ should pick you up
KRS-One
DJ Revolution
Tell me, what's the solution?

[Scratch chorus: "The DJ" - Common]

[Verse 3:]
Yeah, you're a D dot J dot, man don't even say that
We real in the field, y'all pressin' play back
DJ Revolution, watch how you say dat
Y'all gonna respect this DJ from way back
Yo, hey Jack, this the payback
Y'all far from home and forgot your way back
So bein' I'm the teacher and all this
Me and DJ Revolution put together this short list
For DJ's
So you can get on your job
#1
A DJ is not an Ipod
A DJ is not a jukebox, fuck your requests
You come to hear the DJ rock
#2
Just because you got 20, 000 songs in your computer and you call on them
Doesn't mean you should bore the crowd
Be selective, you don't have to play all of them
#3
I really shouldn't have to say this
But don't build your set from your P.D. playlist
#4
DJ's across the nation
What you play in your ride, play on the station
#5
Needless to say
DJ's must love the music they play
And Mix
#6
If you're good
Just because you can scratch doesn't mean you should
Cuttin' and scratchin' is seasonin' when you use it
Rock it, but people wanna hear the music
So #7
Let's get into this
Don't ever start a mix you can't finish
At #8
For DJ's to hear it
Don't shout your name over other rapper's lyrics
Or rhymes
#9
Keep the party movin'
Play up to two verses only, keep the party movin'
#10
Find a friend
A true MC that down with you till the end
Someone who can explain what you doin'
Sorta like KRS with DJ Revolution
What are we provin'?
DJin' with MCin' together is hip hop's true fusion

"The DJ"

[talking: KRS One]
Stand up for the culture. Don't just grab a check
These motherfuckers won't be here next year
What you gonna do when they fire yo' ass?
Man, you better stand with the people. DJ Revolution. The originator

[Scratch Chorus: "The DJ" - Common]
