Got the scrawny legs but I move just like Lou Brock
With speed. I'm agile plus I'm worth your while
One hundred percent intelligent black child
My optic presentation sizzles the retina
How far must I go to gain respect? Ummmm
Well, it's kind of simple, just remain your own
Or you'll be crazy sad and alone
Industry rule number four thousand and eighty:
Record company people are shady"

However, the group is now disbanded, with no knowledge of what the future may hold for this exceptional tandem.
Before I had status and before I had a pager,
You could find the abstract, listening to hip-hop,
My pops used to say it reminded him of bebop,
I said 'Well, daddy, don't you know that things go in cycles,
Way that Bobby Brown is just ampin' like
It's all expected, things are for the lookin',
If you got the money, Quest is for the bookin''"
-"Excursions" A Tribe Called Quest
- You are an ignorant idiot. Jump off a bridge, you won't be missed
It is almost guaranteed that if you let someone who only listens to rock music listen to them, they will like it because of their beats and lyrics. This is because rap nowadays is not as meaningful as it was during Quest's time.
I'm sure you will too if you have a shred of intelligence
lyrics include: "responsibility is something i can't deny, illegalities are a narcissists reply" and such. if you haven't listened to them it's never too late
