Award Tour
A Tribe Called Quest Lyrics


We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
New York, NJ, N.C., VA
We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Oaktown, L.A., San Fran, St. John

People give your ears, so I be sublime
It's enjoyable to know you and the concubine
Niggas, take off your coats ladies, act like gems
Sit down, Indian style, as we recite these hymns
See, lyrically I'm Mario Andretti on the MOMO
Ludicrous, we speedy, or infectious with the slow-mo
Heard me in the eighties, J.B's on the promo
In my never ending quest to get the paper on the caper
But now, let me take it to the Queens side
I'm taking it to Brooklyn side
All the residential Questers to invade the way
Hold up a second son, 'cause we almost there
You can be a black man and lose all your soul
You can be white and groove but don't crap the roll
See my shit is universal, if you got knowledge of dolo
Of delf for self, see there's no one else
Who can drop it on the angle, acute at that
So, do that, do that, do do that that that (come on)
Do that, do that, do do that that that (okay)
Do that, do that, do do that that that
I'm bugging out, so let me get back 'cause I'm wettin' niggas
So run and tell the others 'cause we are the brothas
I learned how to build mics in my workshop class
So give me this award, and let's not make it the last

We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo
We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas

Back in '89, I simply slid into place
Buddy, buddy, buddy all up in your face
A lot of kids was busting rhymes but they had no taste
Some said Quest was wack, but now is that the case
I have a quest to have a mic in my hand
Without that, it's like Kryptonite and Superman
So Shaheed come in with the sugar cuts
Phife Dawg's my name, but on stage, call me Dynomutt
When was the last time you heard the Phifer sloppy
Lyrics anonymous, you'll never hear me copy
Top notch baby, never coming less
Sky's the limit, you gots to believe up in Quest
Sit back, relax, get up out the path
If not that, here's the dance floor, come move that ass
Non-believers, you can check the steps
I roll with Shaheed and the brother Abstract
Niggas know the time when Quest is in the jam
I never let a statue tell me how nice I am
Coming with more hits than the Braves and the Yankees
Living mad phat like an over sized mampi
The wackest crews try to diss, it makes me laugh
When my track record's longer than a DC-20 aircraft
So, next time that you think you want something here
Make something deffer, take that garbage to St. Elsewhere

We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
S.C., Maryland, New Orleans, Motown
We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Chinatown, Spokane, London, Tokyo
We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
Houston, Delaware, DC, Dallas
We on a world tour with Muhammad, my man
Going each and every place with the mic in their hand
New York, NJ, N.C., VA

Seven times out of ten we listen to our music at night
Thus spawned the title of this program
The word, maraud, means to loot
In this case, we maraud for ears

I'm 45... Lived through the best generations of rap...and still feel it in my soul to this day...no matter how annoying YouTube can be the fact I can relive many years growing up watching these videos is priceless

I'll be 40 in August, so I'm there with you. I was a child/preteen during this era

Scorpio on the low

I'm 43, I feel you 100.

Even the most depressed person, can get a smile put on their face, as soon as phife's verse comes on.

How can you be depressed when he says "Call me Dyno-mut?"

IKR. This song heals the soul. Rap music sucks the last 10-15 years. Everyone uses the same rhyme sceme and sounds the same. Can people just listen to the "real music" like Big Daddy Kane, A Tribe Called Quest, Del The funkee Homosapien, Rakim, EPMD, Souls of Mischief, Wu-Tang, DMX, Big L, Tupac, Hieroglyphics, Nas, Biggie Smalls, The Pharcyde, Eminem, Jay-Z...
