[Mos Def] 

Make me want to HOLLA.. aowwWWWWWWWWWWWWW! 

"Ah.. ah ah  ah ah.. ah ah  ah lert the squad.." 

Rock and roll 

"Ah.. ah ah  ah ah.. ah ah  ah lert the squad.." 

Hehehe  rock and roll 

"Ah.. ah ah  ah ah.. ah ah  ah lert the squad.." 

Whoahhhhh oh  oooh weee oooh 

"Ah.. ah ah  ah ah.. ah ah  ah lert the squad.." 

Whoahhhhh oh 



(Huh) My grandmomma was raised on a reservation 

(Huh) My great grandmomma was, from a plantation 

They sang - songs for inspiration 

They sang - songs for relaxation 

They sang - songs, to take their minds up off that 

Fucked up situation 

I am... yes I am... the descendant (yes yes) 

Of those folks whose, backs got broke 

Who, fell down inside the gunsmoke 

(Black people!) Chains on they ankles and feet 

I am descendants, of the builders of your street 

(Black people!) Tenders to your cotton money 

I am.. hip-hop 

"It's heavy metal for the black people" 

I am.. rock and roll (rock and roll.. rock'n'roll) 

BEEN HERE FOREVER! 

They just ain't let you know.. (HA!) 



I said, Elvis Presley ain't got no soul (huh) 

Chuck Berry is rock and roll (damn right) 

You may dig on the Rolling Stones 

But they ain't come up with that style on they own (uh-uh) 

Elvis Presley ain't got no SOULLLL (hell naw) 

Little Richard is rock and roll (damn right) 

You may dig on the Rolling Stones 

But they ain't come up with that shit on they own (nah-ah) 



Guess that's just the way shit goes 

You steal my clothes and try to say they yo's (yes they do) 

Cause it's a show filled with pimps and hoes 

Tryin to take everything that you made or control (there they go) 

Elvis Presley ain't got no SOULLLL 

Bo Diddley is rock and roll (damn right) 

You may dig on the Rolling Stones 

But they ain't the first place the credit belongs 



Say whoahhhh-oh (don't take it) oooh-weee-ohhh 

(black music) whoahhhh-oh (don't take it) oooh-weee-ohhh 

(black music) whoahhhh-oh (Jimi Hendrix say) oooh-weee-ohhh 

(black music) whoahhhh-oh (Albert King and) oooh-weee-ohhh 

(and Motown) 



(huh) I ain't tryin to diss 

But I don't be tryin to f*ck with Limp Bizkit 

"The f*ck is on your mind?" 

When I get down in my zone 

I be rockin Bad Brains and Fishbone 

I ain't tryin to slow your groove 

But that ain't the way I'm tryin to move 

I don't turn on Korn to get it on; 

I be playin Jimi Hendrix 'til the dawn 

That's my word is bond 

Sittin up on my front lawn 

Got the volume turned to ten 

Playin Albert King the best again (black) 

When the mornin in the cooker 

Got to turn on some John Lee Hooker 

When I want some rock and roll 

Go to Otis Redding to get some soul 



Say, James Brown got plenty of soul 

James Brown like to rock and roll 

He can do all the shit fo' sho' 

That Elvis Presley could never know (black people) 

Said, Kenny G ain't got no SOULLLL 

John Coltrane is rock and roll (uh-huh) 

You may dig on the Rolling Stones 

But they could never ever rock like Nina Simone 



Say whoahhhh-oh (don't take it) oooh-wee-ohh 

(black music) whoahhhh-oh (don't take it) oooh-weee-ohhh 

(black music) whoahhhh-oh (don't take it) oooh-weee-ohhh 

(black music) whoah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
