I don't think that is vital for me to be your idol,
If you can't envision a brother who ain't dissin',
Instead, it's been injected, the Tribe has been perfected.
Afrocentric livin', Africans be givin'
Some brothers, they be flammin', thinkin' we ain't slammin,
A blue-colllar talker, a hemisphere stalker,
If you're in a Jeep and you dig what you're hearin',
I am what I am, that's a tribal man.
As we start our travels, things they will unravel.
Won't be gone for long, listen to the song.

Push it along, push it along.

Put one up for the Pfeife, it's time to deceipher.
The clock is always tickin', the systems should be kickin'.
Should I release the lever, the lever of the clever,
The rotts of the rap filling up the gap

Indicates to the brothers that we be on the flip tip.
Through the dance-hall, but my anthem is humble.
So I "kick the slash for the gipper" and the witty.
Constantly rude as some sort of tribal terror.
Repair the wear and tear, don't start 'fore it starts.
If you can't pull it, all ya gotta do is
It's good to be an object and never, ever reject.
Keep it in boom and never will we slander.
Money gives a nudge to the poet star bandit.
Mysterious is the tribe for we choose it.
God, could you help 'cause this Quest is crazy spacey?
We'll be goin' up the creek in a great big canoe.
Hop inside the bed and pull over the covers.
We just want a slab of the ham, don't you know, black?
Are nothin' but a peg of informality.
If you can't pull it, all ya gotta do is
