    We Can Get Down

    A Tribe Called Quest

    We can get down, we can we can get down
    It's like that man, it's like that (yes!)
    Check it!

    I'm not your average MC with the Joe Schmoe flow
    If you don't know me by now, you'll never know
    Stepping on my critics, beating on my foes
    The plan is to stay focused, only then I can grow
    Straight from the heart, I represent hip hop
    I be three albums deep, but I don't wanna go pop
    Too many candy rappers seem to be at the top
    Too much candy is no good, so now I'm closing the shop
    Crushing competition like Italians on grapes
    My rhymes styles be blending like a Ron G tape
    My man where ya going, you can't escape
    When the Tribe is in the house that means nobody is safe
    How can a reverend preach, when a rev can't define
    The music of our youth from 1979
    We rap by what we see, meaning reality
    From people busting caps and like Mandela being free
    Not every MC be with the negativity
    We have a slew of rappers pushing positivity
    Hip hop will never die yo, it's all about the rap
    So Mayor Barry smoking crack, let's preach about that
    The trash you talk won't matter, that old bogus chatter
    The more that you condemn us, it only makes us phatter
    When I talk, I know I'm talking for Hip Hoppers all around
    You know you love the sound, we gets down

    We can get down, we can we can get down
    It's like that man, it's like that (yes!)
    Check it!

    I'm the cherry on the top of yo ice cream
    I'm the mystic thought inside your dream
    Listen to the way we pulsate the jam
    I'm the nigga here with the mic in hand
    Styles that we present are just a few
    To do away with you and your hum drum crew
    This is '93 and the shit is real
    Black people unite and put down your steel
    Ladies make a forum on your sexual drive
    Devote it to your lover and make it thrive
    The rhythm's in F, I'm a hip hop body
    Release my energy with the force of a shotty
    Standing on the wall with my Polo on
    Talking to the girl with the Liz Claiborne
    Keep the poetry in my black knapsack
    Got my Timbo hooves and my Doublemint pack
    Hit the city streets to enhance my soul
    I can kick a rhyme over ill drum rolls
    With a kick, snare, kicks and high hat
    Skilled in the trade of that old boom bap
    I can do a trick with the opposite breed
    I used to down 40s and smoke grade weed
    Now, I'm doing shows with half loot down
    Now it's time for me to take ya uptown

    It's like that man, it's like that (yes!)
    It's like this, Shaheed!

    Songwriters: Kamaal Ibn John Fareed / Ali Shaheed Jones-Muhammad / Malik Izaak Taylor / William H. Cosby

  39. Michael Frailey

    To give this song a dislike you must be born after 1995, real hip hoppers know this is a true classic.
