DIGABLE PLANETS

DIGABLE PLANETS - Where I'm From

rate me

Peace.. peace.. peace y'all!

(Strange!) Real strange.. real strange..

(An overdose..) A.. nickel bag of funk

(WE GOT BEAT!!)

Now move on.. move on.. yeah..

("Hey man are you ready to go?") Yeah..

[Butterfly]

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 your coat black"

Jupiter, keeps her 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 Clarks 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, ashubani, gangsta lean where I'm from

I'm interplanetary, 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, SPLIT

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 told my mother it's Africa at work

On vibes, we freak, them universal beats

You find it at the spot you hit at ends of every week

We twist, exist, to spin the maddest hits

Up here funk is our neighbor so we paid her a visit

The lip we sip can't house the nine zips

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

Cocoa gotta know, how Planets, gotta roll

Speak the mega cool, get funky as a goal

It's calm, relax, we're only some new jacks

that acts from the funk but don't play the role

Where you from?

....

[Doodlebug]

Weekend "Dig Plans" got T's where I'm from

Where I'm from, it's Collins 13 where I'm from

Where I'm from, brothers took the beat and got fly

(Why?) That's most asked by 85, where I'm from

Fakin the funk you get did

Projects, tenements, pyramids

Where I'm from, we're livin off the boom boom crack

It's that hip hop rockers jazz when I max

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 thought so get a buffet plate

The lyrics are so fat you might gain weight

So just watch me step 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

of hardhead intervene, damn I know you're fluent

Yeah, cause Doodle ain't havin it and Butterfly knew it

Where you from?

....

[Ladybug]

Venus acts a fool at the square right? (Yeah)

Doctors engineer in apparel right? (Yeah)

Hip-Hop made a point last year right? (Yeah)

But Planets is the joint this year right? (Yeah)

Planets got the dubs and live to grass-hop

Duck out from the fuzz, that sweat the hip-hop

Risin like we foam, get it from the dome

I'm from where the fat beats stretch for mad blocks

We can get a kit, without, no thread

Feelin funky beats go straight, to the head

Fall into a club, dig on what we love

It be past six, before we reach bed

Butter freaks on relics we say, those are fat

Doodle makin silk, LaQuan, where it's at?

We need to stack a sack, for rap to take us dap

So we treat our clips, just like, bustin caps

Rip it til dawn, kick it til dawn

Hip-Hop is the fix, or else, we be gone

People thought they canned it, rap is not by bandits

Digable Planets got it, goin on

[all together]

Everywhere, every every where (yeah) [x8]
