Crazy MC's waste they time chasin millions
While KRS-One, holds the minds of the children
I'm buildin a followin of a hundred and forty-four thousand

from KRS-ONE (Ft. Fat Joe) – De Automatic Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Crazy MC’s waste their time chasing millions of fans and money. KRS-ONE has no time for this but to teach the minds of children through his conscious rapping.

In doing so, he is building up a following of a hundred and forty-four thousand fans without deliberately chasing after them.

The reason he says 144,000 is in the Bible it states that how many will be spared when the Messiah returns.
