About The Seed

"The Seed (2.0)" is the second single by The Roots from their fifth album Phrenology (2002). The track, which features Cody Chesnutt on the guitar and vocals, is an "uptempo retooling" of his song "The Seed" from the album The Headphone Masterpiece. The song's music video was nominated for the MTV2 Award at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. Jeff Vrabel of Billboard described the track as "a genre-bending mix of rock guitars and Prince-styled keyboards and drums".

Knocked up 9 months ago
And what she finna have she don't know
She want neo-soul, this hip-hop is old
She don't want no rock-n-roll

She want platinum or ice or gold
She want a whole lotta somethin' to fold
If you a obstacle she just drop ya cold
'Cause one monkey don't stop the show

Little Mary is bad
In these streets she done ran
E'er since when the heat began
I told the girl look here

Calm down I'ma hold your hand
To enable you to peep the plan
'Cause you is quick to learn
And we can make money to burn

If you allow me the latest game
I don't ask for much, but enough room to spread my wings
And the world finna know my name

[Verse 2: Cody Chesnutt]
I don't ask, for much these days
And I don't bitch, and whine, if I don't get my way
I only wanna f*ck another behind my lover's back
I sit and watch it grow standin' where I'm at

Fertilize another behind my lover's back
And I'm keepin' my secrets mine
I push my seed in her bush for life
It's gonna work because I'm pushin' it right

If Mary drops my baby girl tonight
I would name her Rock-N-Roll

Uh-huh
Cadillac need space to roam
Where we headin for she don't know
We in the city where the pros shake rattle and roll

And I'm a gaddang rollin' stone
I don't beg I can hold my own
I don't break I can hold the chrome
And this weighin' a ton and I'm a son of a gun

My code name is The Only One and Black Thought is bad
These streets he done ran ever since when the game began
I never played the fool
Matta fact I be keepin' it cool

Since money been changing hands
And I'm left to shine, but the legacy that I leave behind be the seed
That'll keep the flame
I don't ask for much but enough room to spread these wings
And the world finna know my name

I don't beg
For no rich man
And I don't scream, and kick, when his shit don't fall in my hands, man
'cause I know how to still

Fertilize another against my lover's will
I lick the opposition 'cause she don't take no pill
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-no dear
You'll be keeping my legend alive

I push my seed in her bush for life
Its gonna work because I'm pushin' it right
If Mary drops my baby girl tonight
I would name her Rock-N-Roll
Oh-ooh break it down, break it down, break down beat

I push my seed somewhere deep in her chest
I push it naked 'cause I've takin my test
Deliverin' Mary it don't matter the sex
I'm gon' name it rock and roll

I push my seed in her bush for life
It's gonna work becuz I'm pushin it right
If Mary drop my baby girl, tonight

I would name her Rock-N-Roll
I would name her Rock-N-Roll
I would name her Rock-N-Roll yeah
I would name it Rock-N-Roll
