Memories Live

Talib Kweli & Hi TekBuy this song

Yo, you know what we got to do, man, we need to get a whole cd
Get a collection of all the music and everything we've ever done
 Bringing back sweet memories

Life, living in flatbush and going to house parties
Red lights, bumping, life is what you make it, then sorry In my lifetime, ain't done too many things Better than watching your first son put his sentences together
Yo, it kinda make me think of way back when
I was the portrait of the artist as a young man
All them teenage dreams of rapping Writing rhymes on napkins Was really visualization Making this shit actually happen
It's like something come through me
That truly just consume me Speaking through the voices of the spirits speaking to me
I think back in the day, I absorbed everything like a sponge Took a plunge into my past to share with my son
 Bringing back sweet memories

Like thoughts out the back of my mind Going back in some time
Like when you used to cut and had to go to the back of the line
Look back and you find Tracks that make you relax and recline Now cats rap about packing a nine
When they lacking divine Inspiration Running out of topics of conversation Well I drop it in the pocket because rocking's my occupation I do it remarkably, spark up a leaf
And possibly you could follow me
Tap into your chi Utilize your memory To help you see clearly, then get back to me
Actually, nothing's new under the sun
So when life be stressing me
My remedy is 'bringing back sweet memories'
Like the faces that are woven in the fabric of my consciousness From cities where making 21's a big accomplishment Like when my people understood their prominence
And my past life visions of the continent Like the first time I saw krs live, rockin' it
I heard resurrection by common sense Dominant in my psyche I chose my direction like spike lee
To speak my life through mics, and I never take it lightly It might be something you did to bring you down when you were high
But that karma's a bitch, you steady asking god why
Like when my parents first split up
Yo, I was illin' Seems like some years they was together for the sake of the children And I love them for that
I don't know if they saw that
So I'mma say it, and convey it when the world play it (3x)
 Bringing back sweet memories

Like black is beautiful, names from the seventies Let me tap into your energy Fields of dreams become my property When I reach my destiny like a prophecy Especially when I 'm 'bringing back sweet memories'
I got deep into my mind, see I got a treasury That float through my head like a sweet melody
What you telling me Reflection is a collection of memories Definitely this is how hiphop was meant to be
Eventually, I knew I'd run into hi-teknology
It was only a matter of time like centuries Check the recipe or technique to how it sound so sweet I freak with word power, my man speak with beats If I could make it in new york, I figured anywhere I'd make it
Came to cincinnati linked with mood, and we did sacred Hi-tek beats became my favorite Hustle on the side was the cut
We started to put songs together like 'what!' Traveled the world, came back to the crib
And hit the motherland Yeah, this year we put in work and got some other plans
In fact, that's where I'll take the fam
When the reflection joint is done
By the time you hear this, I'll be basking in african sun
Like wow!
We made it
We here
