foundation lyrics – brand nubian

brand nubian baby, here to flip it again
and you know it don’t stop until the party ends
so get your hands up high, if you feel me reply
‘cos you know these brothers here we keep it extra tight

look, listen and observe, it took precision to connect
the words of dialect within a rhythm you never heard
forbidden fruit, take a bite, you could lose your life
like how they crucified christ musa’s hair was white

lord jamar, sadat x and puba’s here tonight
we got next on the court, i don’t know what you thought
this flow can’t be bought, only sold in exchange
for platinum ang gold, you’ve been told, open up the manifold

only to reveal scrolls and scrolls
premeditated to be dedicated to lost souls
properly educated, never sloppily operated
playing the beats for all my people incarcerated

we stay in the streets and find new ways to eat
crime wave, i remember wetting my feet
in my blind days, now these n*gg*s getting they heat
from under they seat, i wonder when the guns’ll deplete

brand nubian brothers here to flip it again
and you know we don’t stop until your party ends
so get your hands up high, if you feel me reply
‘cos you know these brothers here, we keep it extra tight
the foundation, as we hitcha with a brand nu creation
new millennium we don’t mess around
do the knowledge as we blaze the situation, so just feel me now

i’m in a rush, who got the keys to my truck?
who am i? i just might be a spy
i drop a tear at the sight of the blue ny
i’m a threat just like garnette

pick a player out my set like marbury
serve me sherry with a cherry
i always eat what you think
i ain’t got no shoes on my feet, i’m from down the street, huh

now cats ride around new york with the slick hot rods
some late model usually pushing full throttle
hanging illegal u’s and staying with the gleaming shoes
riding one deep but back to back to back

f*ck a buzz, it’s gonna happen just because
sure i was with her was, but i don’t know what she does
big dimes h*t me every time like it’s a crime my prime will steadily climb
yeah, i can’t release nothing to y’all before it’s time

brand nubian brothers here to flip it again
and you know we don’t stop until your party ends
so get your hands up high, if you feel me reply
‘cos you know these brothers here, we keep it extra tight
the foundation, as we hitcha with a brand nu creation
new millennium we don’t mess around
do the knowledge as we blaze the situation, so just feel me now

now my verbal ill*stration graphic more than playstation
microphone occupation operation save the nation
black crusader, persuader, educator
knowledge detonator none greater

leave haters stuck like a project elevator
always jammin’ it airtight like a laminate
you can’t contaminate it
go getters we be superb like justin’s catfish fritters

now i got 2000 flows, only 4 less than all of my hoes
(hey)
oops, i mean my bro’s but i’m just keeping y’all on your toes
excitement for your enlightenment, spitting novels, getting bravos
tear it up like el nino, keeping it hotter than jalapenos

microphone holder doing more damage than rolling boulders
rhyme style should’ve fooled ya
knocked your head right off your shoulders
see my intention, black on black prevention, break the tension
teach the seeds, tell them what they need and then collect my pension

brand nubian, baby, born more flows than a test tube valve
your radio ain’t really on if brand nubian ain’t on your dial

yeah, as we do it like this
2000, brand nubian comin’ atcha one time
new millennium style
