A great classic song from the golden age straight off the streets of Queens, New York. Undoubtedly one of the best groups hip-hop has seen and will ever see

Q-Tip:
back in the days on the boulevard of linden,
We used to kick routines and presence was fittin.
It was I the abstract

Phife Dog:
and me the five footer.
I kicks the mad style so step off the frankfurter.

Q-Tip:
yo, phife, you remember that routine
That we used to make spiffy like mister clean?

Phife Dog:
um um, a tidbit, um, a smidgen.
I don~t get the message so you gots to run the pigeon.

Q-Tip:
you on point phife?

Phife Dog:
all the time, tip.

Q-Tip:
you on point phife?

Phife Dog:
all the time, tip.

Q-Tip:
you on point phife?

Phife Dog:
all the time, tip.

Q-Tip:
well, then grab the microphone and let your words rip.

Phife Dog:
now heres a funky introduction of how nice I am.
Tell your mother, tell your father, send a telegram.
Im like an energizer cause, you see, I last long.
My crew is never ever wack because we stand strong.
Now if you say my style is wack thats where youre dead wrong.
I slayed that body in el segundo then push it along.
Youd be a fool to reply that phife is not the man
cause you know and I know that you know who I am.
A special shot of peace goes out to all my pals, you see.
And a middle finger goes for all you punk mcs.
cause I love it when you wack mcs despise me.
They get vexed, I roll next, can~t none contest me.
Im just a fly mc whos five foot three and very brave.
On job remaining, no Im chaining cause I misbehave.
I come correct in full effect have all my hoes in check.
And before I get the butt the jim must be erect.
You see, my aura~s positive I dont promote no junk.
See, Im far from a bully and I aint a punk.
Extremity in rhythm, yeah thats what you heard.
So just clean out your ears and just check the word.

Q-Tip:
check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check it out.
Check it out.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Play tapes yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check the rhyme yall.
Check it out.
Check it out.

Phife Dog:
back in days on the boulevard of linden,
We used to kick routines and the presence was fittin
It was I the phifer,

Q-Tip:
and me, the abstract.
The rhymes were so rumpin that the brothers rode the zack.

Phife Dog:
yo, tip you recall when we used to rock
Those fly routines on your cousin~s block.

Q-Tip:
um, let me see, damn I cant remember.
I receive the message and you will play the sender.

Phife Dog:
you on point tip?

Q-Tip::
all the time phife.

Phife Dog:
you on point tip?

Q-Tip:
yeah, all the time phife.

Phife Dog:
you on point tip?

Q-Tip:
yo, all the time phife.

Phife Dog:
so play the resurrector and give the dead some life.

Q-Tip:
okay, if knowledge is the key then just show me the lock.
Got the scrawny legs but I move just like lou brock,
With speed. Im agile plus Im worth your while.
One hundred percent intelligent black child.
My optic presentation sizzles the retina.
How far must I go to gain respect? um.
Well, its kind of simple, just remain your own
Or youll be crazy sad and alone.
Industry rule number four thousand and eighty,
Record company people are shady.
So kids watch your back cause I think they smoke crack,
I dont doubt it. look at how they act.
Off to better things like a hip-hop forum.
Pass me the rock and Ill storm with the crew and ...
Proper. what you say hammer? proper.
Rap is not pop, if you call it that then stop.

Nc, yall check the rhyme yall.
Sc, yall check it out yall.
Virginia, check the rhyme yall.
Check it out. out.
In london, check the rhyme, yall.
