featuring De La Soul

I hope that you're with this I hope that you're willing
"Mama Gave Birth to the Soul Children"
Well here comes the goy
You know the one that ate up like boy
Making an appearance with a notty-head set
Peace to the negative, nah, you make the weigh-in
If you know you're better, you'd better that you caught a
If you're feeling sick, it's alright it's fever night
Cause if you do we calling in March Patrol
Cayumbo is the ruler that's bond to the word
Dove is going to leave you with a tweet tweet tweet
Next on the menu, we continue with the pasta
Twizzlers and honey, yum yum yummy
Tiptoeing in I proceed to the floors
Excuse me mommy, Pos wins
Brother freak it live for this tribe
Pushing that we start cause the soul says please
Ducks and we sit need to get
Polaroid flicks are back and you know

Go mommy!
I'm back, a black queen upon the scene
Prince Paul produces this and it's a fly one
It's a family affair and then we're out of here
So flex to a Queen Latifah/De La Soul sound
It's inevitable that this joint venture would be incredible
But the rhyme is so good it's practically edible (Say what?)
As I relay the story untold
They weren't born from the body, they were born from the soul
