KRS One Sample: "It's not about a salary, it's all about reality"

from N.W.A – Gangsta Gangsta Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This sampling in the chorus is confusing given the message Ice Cube had articulated in the first verse. The sample is from Boogie Down Productions‘ song “My Philosophy.”

N.W.A. is saying that they don’t do this because of money, but to dish the truth. They want to speak what is really going on, and that’s why they spit.
