Brand nubian function

 

A junction of three

Collaboration in a style that's like funk

 

To slap palms swing arms

Tap a soul

Cause no rock rolls down our hill

Yo black it's kinda ill

We don't roll no rocks we just fill

Heads with knowledge pure foundation

Showing and proving through the manifestation

Of our name which is "Brand Nu"

Brand Nubian and we've come to

Make the people aware that black means first

4000 years and we're made to feel cursed

But now it's our time to rule

 

Student of the old teacher of the new school

My inspiration is the five percent nation

As I cram education was born

 

Like a thorn in your side I have sworn

Never to divide with Brand Nubian

 

You have to stand as a black man

Brand Nubian

From the Sudan plus I never ran

I'm from Africa the central region

There I grew and formed a legion of my force

 

See me riding on a jet black horse at any cost

Brand Nubians will rise up

And be the boss and show it

All fairness if you're black and show awareness

You can rally 'round the flag

 

Stand tall or don't stand at all

You're with the three and

The three won't sag to the floor

Besides picture that I'm painting I can draw

See me work nine to five on my easel

My physical is strong

And my mind is cock diesel

 

Brand Nubian function in conjunction

With the three

 

Brand Nubian

Not on a bandwagon following a fad

Making use of the knowledge

That we already had

Grand Pu here to send the mind into a frenzy

I bet I'll swing something

This summer for the benzi

Seep into the mind the brain

And activate the pelvis

Keeping the blind deaf dumb and blind is Elvis

 

Meaning old so behold

The black the beautiful the bold

Now if this falls short I'll try harder

A wisdom to me is someone like Assata

I'd like to say peace to Bambaata

Tasa Kuma Achmed and Kenyatta

Brothers that'll fight for the cause

And they live in the boundaries

Of the righteous laws

To put it exact dominant means black

But some have a hard time

Trying to swallow that

Now we have some that are fake

Wearing blue eyes and green eyes

Come on gimme a break

Brand Nubian here to wake up

Take off the makeup

Cause all it'll do is cake up

Just be real that's how I feel

Brand Nubian

 

Nubian

 

A native or inhabitant of Nubia

 

Nubian

A member of one of a group of

African tribes that formed a poweful

Empire between Egypt and Ethiopia

From the 6th to 14th century Nubian

 

Any of several languages spoken

In the central and northern Sudan

And that's why we call ourselves Brand Nubian

 

As the midnight oil burns our minds turn

Make a mistake and be fake and you'll burn

We're here to teach

So you'd might as well learn

That the tree has the knowledge

For what you yearn

Brand Nubian
