Is yall ready for Twenty-0-7, its now another drought
Everyones a killer, wow we buggin out
Since 86 showin the crowd what Im about
And they still want to know when the album comin out
Ask the teenagers, OGs and Ask the kids
What they definition of Classic is
Timeless, cause age dont count in the booth
And your flow stays submerged in the fountain of youth
And no doubt the truth Im off the meters
Everybody co-signing even non-believers
I came in the door, became one of yalls leaders
In the fresh pair of Air Force One sneakers
Uptown we call em uppies when they on divas
Prolly worn when KRS One teaches
Nas, made you look, before the haters
I bet you Kan had em on when he walked with Jesus
This is classic

classic, better than I'v ever been
talent,
If its classic its gonna last forever than Im everywhere you never been and better than I ever been
Classic
Better than I'v ever been

[Kanye West:]
Cant buy this, superflyness, like a shyness, your highness
Its performin, look how long the line is
Thats what happens when you make shit thats timeless
Thats what happens these rappers is the pioneers
What do it take to be a legend like Nas is?
Thats so novice, Im so polished, I got a right to be a little bit snobbish
I did a little bit of college, semesters it took 2 like Rob Base
To let me figure out this wasnt my place, the beat slowed til you listened to my pace
Cuz I be killin shit, but thats evident, and yall feelin it, but I expected it
If its classic its gonna last forever than Im everywhere you never been and better than I ever been

classic, better than I'v ever been
talent,
If its classic its gonna last forever than Im everywhere you never been and better than I ever been
Classic
Better than I'v ever been

[Nas:]
Perseverance, see the fake hustler rapper to them it hurts to hear this
O you went platinum yeah thats nice, now let me see you do the same thing twice
New times, 4 times, then been a couple of more times, please your amateur night is show time
Its one life to live so live it the best you can, the world could use one less man
Not enough air, not enough car factories to manufacture new vehicles sedans and vans
When they do make the whip you like ya chips aint right, by the time you could afford it the car aint important
In the streets silent, its just I and - cops keep firin in my environment
Leavin your slum when they drive home far from the hood brothers they eager to jump on
I like to be the wall that they post up on, I like to see them fall, guilty for doing wrong
Im classic like the Air Ones, the Hustler shoe, thats what Im accustomed to

classic, better than I'v ever been
talent,
If its classic its gonna last forever than Im everywhere you never been and better than I ever been
Classic
Better than I'v ever been

[KRS One:]
How many yall got criminal minded you you you yall dont be blinded
Me I got no jewels on my neck, why I dont need em I got your respect
KRS 1 20 years I rock I do it for JMJ and Scott LaRock this hip hop
And wes a nation, dont you want to hear more KRS on your radio station?
Instead of broadcasting how we smokin trees, on the radio we need to hear more local MCs
Where you at? Come on where you at? This is the difference between MCing and rap
Rappers spit rhymes that are mostly illegal, MCs spit rhymes to uplift they people
Peace, love, unity, and Havin fun, these are the lyrics of KRS One
