Enjoy the lyrics. Let us know about corrections in the comments! Brand Nubian function A junction of three, collaboration in a style that's like funk To slap palms, swing arms, tap a soul Cause no rock rolls down our hill Yo black it's kinda ill, we don't roll no rocks we just fill Heads with knowledge, pure foundation Showing and proving through the manifestation Of our name which is "Brand Nu" Brand Nubian and we've come to Make the people aware that black means first Four hundreed years and we're made to feel cursed But now it's our time to rule Student of the old, teacher of the new school My inspiration is the Five Percent Nation As I cram, education was born Like a thorn in your side I have sworn Never to divide with Brand Nubian [Verse 2: Sadat X] You have to stand as a black man, Brand Nubian From the Sudan plus I never ran I'm from Africa, the central region There I grew and formed a legion of my force See me riding on a jet black horse at any cost Brand Nubians will rise up and be the boss and show it All fairness if you're black and show awareness You can rally 'round the flag Stand tall, or don't stand at all You're with the three and the three won't sag to the floor Besides the picture that I'm painting I can draw See me work nine to five on my easel My physical is strong and my mind is cock diesel Brand Nubian function in conjunction with the three [Verse 3: Grand Puba] Brand Nubian, not on a bandwagon following a fad Making use of the knowledge that we already had Grand Pu, here to send the mind into a frenzy I bet I'll swing something this summer for the Benzi Seep into the mind the brain and activate the pelvis Keeping the blind, deaf, dumb, and blind is Elvis Meaning old, so behold (The black, the beautiful, the bold) Now if this falls short, I'll try harder A wisdom to me is someone like Assata I'd like to say peace to Bambaata Tasa Kuma(?), Achmed, and Kenyatta Brothers that'll fight for the cause And they live in the boundaries of the righteous laws To put it exact, dominant means black But some have a hard time trying to swallow that Now we have some that are fake Wearing blue eyes and green eyes, come on, gimme a break Brand Nubian here to wake up Take off the makeup, 'cause all it'll do is cake up Just be real that's how I feel Brand Nubian [Outro] Nubian, a native or inhabitant of Nubia Nubian, A member of one of a group of African tribes that formed a powerful empire between Egypt and Ethiopia from the 6th to 14th century Nubian, any of several languages spoken in the central and northern Sudan And that's why we call ourselves Brand Nubian As the midnight oil burns, our minds turn Make a mistake and be fake and you'll burn We're here to teach so you'd might as well learn That the tree has the knowledge for what you yearn Brand Nubian Subscribe to our channel for more exclusive content - https://www.youtube.com/TommyBoy Tommy Boy Entertainment is a legendary Hip Hop & Electronic label founded in NYC in 1981.
