Lyrics

Connect to the metro
Pay my fare like the rest
Feeling retro
But no doubt at my best
Today's a standing tour of the city
From point A to point B
Next to me an old lady and a dude whose shirt says 'Security'
Its a bit smelly but today my only sanctity
Streams from an RCA jack attached to a box
In the pocket of my backpack

You gonna tell me that you don't remember walkmans?
Even the cheap-kind no-rewind-button?
We had to flip it fast forward
Even became a pro wit it
Chewin up your tapes
But you still kep in to with it
Puts me in a lucid state
To hear the greats on magnetic tape
Somewhat of a ritual
Like diggin' in the crates
And finding all the breaks cut an pasted
In a loop with an 808
DJ and MC got this chemistry like faith
Was simply gifted
Unlimited
Rhymes
Universal

Got this vocal
Born to rock the Mike O. who and solo
Or Damian McDuo with Premier
For a deadly combo
Making music for the streets but on that next level

I remember...
Never tought when it was played way back
That it would ever be remade in fact
In a new way
A catalyst for a good day
Streaming from my backpack

Never tought when it was played way back
That it would ever be remade in fact
In a new way
A catalyst for a good day
Streaming from my backpack

I got the main ingredient for a quest to known
From a tribe down the line bless the microphone
I'm almost home
Coming from the Pharcyde of the town
Will they be Passin' you by instead of givin' a pound
I wanna touch a jazz and win some shit Like Jeff Townes
When you can hear the chirps scratch
In the background Jazzy Jeff...
Like The Roots syncopation to sound
To two generations are treasures to be found
Audio crackling cause my tape's near its end
Flip it over let the B side begin

I remember...
Never tought when it was played way back
That it would ever be remade in fact
In a new way
A catalyst for a good day
Streaming from my backpack

Never tought when it was played way back
That it would ever be remade in fact
In a new way
A catalyst for a good day
Streaming from my backpack

Never tought when it was played
That it would ever be remade
Streaming from my backpack

Never tought when it was played
That it would ever be remade
Streaming from my backpack
