Word To The Mother (Land) (Album Version)

Word To The Mother (Land) (Album Version)

Big Daddy Kane

Grab a hold of yourself, open your eyes

Get wise to the exercise

Being taught by the teacher that's most dominant

You need knowledge?

Well I'm dropping it

Listen to the rap allow it to trap

Your body and soul so that you can adapt

To the man on display as I take you away

So may I?



Proud to be a Black man

Coming exact and

Giving up to brothers five on the back hand

Pray for lease and peace upon each other

With my sisters and brothers



I say the mother, as in the motherland

But on the other hand, another man

Tackled and shackled our ancestors

But we beat him with freedom, so let's bless the

Country that we all came from

Because the moral of it all is we shall overcome

The cream will keep rising

We be sizing

Up, the Asiatic one is enterprising

Building and building to carry on

All the way from Malcolm X to Farrakhan

Martin Luther was a tutor, many were pupils

Those who fell victim were those without scruples

However, to sever, we could never

So hold up the peace sign and stand together

Take heed to the words that I manifest

And when I'm through speaking, Marley Marl'll do the rest




People, people

We gotta get over, before we go under (x2)

Let's get together> (x2)


Yo Big Daddy, what you gonna say now?>

Take a stand the fight for power

Cause we've been here before the Mayflower

Living superior abiding by nature

The history of the Asiatic one paid the

Price to be paid in slavery

Like the name of Antonio was gave to me

But knowledge of self broke every shackle and chain

Now I declare myself as the Big Daddy Kane

The teacher, teaching a lesson to be heard

That's word, to the mother my brother

So discover the truth of one another

Cause here's the real deal upon our skin color

Lay down white, yellow, red or pink

But the color of black is most dominant

The rising and sizing can never cease



Peace!


is the original man, we just can't escape our destiny>

(x2)


Crowd: yeah, that's right...>
