3RD BASS - Product Of The Environment Lyrics

Alright coming up now another request (this one)This time from the boys down at anna's pizza paradiseA new arrangement of a great oldie in rhythm and bluesVerse one: pete nice (prime minister)In the heart of the city you was born and bredYou grew up smart or you wound up deadThings moved fast, but you knew the scoopAnd your savior was a rhyme and a beat and a rap groupA modern day production of the city streetYou said I didn't have it that I couldn't competeSo the sleeper did sleep but the sleeper shoulda woke upNow you're in my sight, the buddha sess you smoke upThat's the element you carry your rhymes onThat style of rhyme won't let you live longCause a strong song to you is what I sentCause I'm a product, of the environmentChorus:There it is, black and white (2x)Verse two: mc serchOn the streets of far rockaway queensSeagram boulevard, b-17Redfern houses where no mc would ever goIs where I did my very first showHad the crowd had the rhymes going, I never fess(his reward, was almost a bullet in his chest)And on that stage, is where I first learnedStick out my chest to be a kid and get burnedYou're so foolish, but I think you knew thisThat on the the microphone punk I can do thisAnd doing this, is what life meantCause I'm a product, of the environmentChorusVerse three: mc serch, pete niceBack in the days when kids were mack daddiesStriped lee jeans, playboys and caddiesLong beach, the m.o.k. centerHe almost caught a bad one when he tried to enterOur wayBang!Bum rush the back doorThen scatter, onto the dance floorMe and my boys, skeezin the cutiesNever had static, cuz everybody knew meLocal dj's, tearin up the waxAnd out the corner, some kid gets taxedAfter the party, crack open a fortyVicked it from the store yo the man never caught meWent up to the arcade, cranked the bassAnd then the five-oh chased us from the placeHop on the railroad, play the conductorEverywhere I went, I always tucked aMarker in my jacket to tag where I wentCause we were just products, of the environmentChorusVerse four: mc serch, pete niceI wanna tell you something that gets me kind of mad...it's about my dear old dadHe's tired, and worn, and works a nine to fiveClockin thirty g's a year to surviveBut I know kids who in a month or soMake that money sellin ya-yoPushin a drug, I can't understandDestroyin a life with a buck in the handPlay rotten slum chain, local street heroBut if you ask serch, you're just a bunch of zeroesToo bad cause when you're older, you won't have a centCause you're a product, of the environmentChorusVerse five: pete niceYou hear it in the strength of my voice and in my rhythmNow you know, how I was livinIt happened to me, like it happened to serchPrime minister pete nice'll kick the verseIn bed-stuy with my boy, kiwai heightThe k to a kingston, wednesday nightTo the empire, show slamminOpen for dana, crew flamminMouth open wide, or listeningDumb dope with a forty in my systemUnprotected but respected for my own selfCause of talent, no shade, or nothin elseA time of tension, racially fenced inI came off (and all the brothers blessed him)I left more than a mark, I left a dentCause I'm a product, of the environmentOutro: k.m.d. and serchAiyyo serch, skin is just a color of the mind and the soulAnd a brother ain't a brother if his heart is cold, youknwhati'msayin fellas? WordAnd I think we need a positive kause in a much damaged societyWord up man nubians killin nubians, brothers just don't understandWord maybe it's some of that crime that's stoppin the growinThe drug pollution and all needs to calm downWord man, cause that's what we need, we need griff productionsWe need a k.m.d. man to uplift the race and bring kause in the beginningAnd a posse called get yoursThere it is, to all y'all bigots who want us to bendWe're just products of the environment, peace!!Hopefully...(there it is, black and white)
