Disses Rival City

Stakes were high; the record needed to be set straight. MC Shan had claimed Queensbridge as the birthplace of hip-hop, forcing BDP to let everyone know what time it was. Over sharp stabs of squealing brass lifted from James Brown's "Get Up Offa That Thing," KRS-One stepped into his role as teacher for much needed reeducation in the wake of Shan's mistake. Though the feud continued for some time, everyone saw that "South Bronx" effectively ended the debate. Hip-hop started in the Bronx, and if you want to know how, "South Bronx" will explain it.
