MC KRS-One, the originator of the phrase.

The phrase "suicide, it's a suicide" was first used by rapper KRS-One in the song "Moshitup" (Just-Ice feat. KRS-One) in 1987. It has since entered into hip hop music as a meme, and has been used by artists such as Public Suicide, Ice-T, Gravediggaz, Redman, Fabolous, Ras Kass, Jay-Z, Jedi Mind Tricks, Snoop Dogg, Kokayi, Goldie Lookin' Chain, Krayzie Bone, The Underachievers, and Pusha T. It serves as a good example of the intertextual nature of the genre, where quoting older works serves as a form of homage to other artists.<ref name="Rabin">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
