Boogie jive and rap is life where i'm from
where i'm from i might play with izzy where i'm from
where i'm from it be like run you coat black
jupiter keeps the fat beats by the pack where i'm from
nappy hair is life we be reading marx where i'm from
the kids be rockin clocks where i'm from
you turn around your cap you talk over a beat
and dig some sounds boomin out a jeep
where i'm from cocoons hide the youth swoon units 100 proof
you want some beef they will cut you some where i'm form
the beats is infinite where i'm from
voodoo, ? gangster lean where i'm from
i'm interplaetary my insect movements vary
it's kinky if it's hair g where i'm from
the firehoses blow it's purple wind and snow
i do a hit and go
it's hip what's hip when hip is just the norm
cause planets pledge allegiance to the funk in all it's forms
the kinks the dance the prints in all the shirts
my grandmother tolld mama that it's africa at work
on vibes we free the universal beat
you find it at the spot you here the ends of every week
we twist exist to spin the maddest hits
up here funk is our neighbor so we paid it a visit
?
for rock we can't do nothin for this we come equipped
off disc off tape rap blastin til from 8
the really truly fat the fly on the flip
coco gotta know how planets gotta roll
speak the mega cool get funky is our goal
it's calm relax we only some new jacks
that ask for the funk but don't play the role
where you from
....
projects tenements pyramids
where i'm from we livin off the boom boom crack
it's that hiphop rockers jazz where i'm ats
peace be the greeting of the insect tribe
pestilent forces can't catch the vibe
we live to love and we love to rock mics
we speak in ghetto tongue cause ghetto's the life
food for though so get a buffet plate
the lyrics are so fat you might gain weight
so just watch me stop alone into the sunset left foot right foot 1-2
mic check
brewin funk inside my soul kitchen
so pull up a chair here's a bit have a listen
?
damn i know you're fluent
ye cause doodle ain't havin it and butterfly knew it
where you from
