Here's a hip hop standard here, a beautiful classic. This joint came up on my Cold Crush Brothers station. I love this joint and it came a little later than other classics by cats like the cold crush brothers or Nucleus, etc.

KRS & BDP...In a league of their own! A must for the top 3 MCs of all times!

If you are truly into Hip Hop this would have to be on your top 5 list of all time great Rap songs. KRS is one of the top 3 M.C.'s(not rapper) of all time. What made him unique was even though he was spritual, conscious, thought provocking he would still battle and tear a wack MC a new one. Much respect to the "Teacher."

Legendary. Dope back in the day and still dope and relevant today. KRS has been putting out up to date hits and maintaining top notch quality never going pop. Arguably the best. Nicole go learn about hip hop. Understand the art and culture and understand that before cats like Kool Herc, etc.. there was nothing to compare hip hop to. The founders of the art were true innovators creating something out of virtually nothing. You have to understand the cultural context of it.

This is when hip-hop was more than catchy beats and no substance!!! ! !
