Boogie jive and rap is life where I'm from
Where I'm from, I might play with Izzy where I'm from
Where I'm from, it be like, run your coat black
Jupiter, keeps her fat beats by the pack

Where I'm from, nappy hair is life
We be reading Marx where I'm from
The kids be rockin' Clarks, where I'm from
You turn around your cap, you talk over a beat
And dig some sounds boomin' out a jeep where I'm from

Cocoons hide the youth, swoon units, 100 proof
You want some beef, they will cut you some where I'm form
The beats is infinite where I'm from
Voodoo, ashubani, gangsta lean where I'm from

I'm interplanetary, my insect movements vary
It's kinky if it's hair, G, where I'm from
The firehoses blow, it's purple wind and snow
I do a hit and go, split

It's hip, what's hip? When hip is just the norm
'Cause Planets pledge allegiance to the funk in all it's forms
The kinks, the dance, the prints in all the shirts
My grandmother told my mother, it's Africa at work

On vibes we freak them universal beats
You find it at the spot, you hit at ends of every week
We twist, exist to spin the maddest hits
Up here funk is our neighbor so we paid her a visit

The lip we sip can't house the nine zips
For rock we can't do nothin', for this we come equipped
Off disc, off tape, rap blastin' 'til from 8
The really truly fat the fly on the flip

Cocoa gotta know, how Planets, gotta roll
Speak the mega cool, get funky as a goal
It's calm, relax, we're only some new jacks
that acts from the funk but don't play the role
Where you from?

Weekend dig plans got T where I'm from
Where I'm from, it's Collins 13 where I'm from
Where I'm from, brothers took the beat and got fly
Why? That's most asked by 85, where I'm from

Fakin' the funk you get did, projects, tenements, pyramids
Where I'm from, we're livin' off the boom boom crack
It's that hip hop, rockers, jazz when I max

Peace be the greeting of the insect tribe
Pestilent forces can't catch the vibe
We live to love and we love to rock mics
We speak in ghetto tongue 'cause ghetto's the life

Food for thought so get a buffet plate
The lyrics are so fat you might gain weight
So just watch me step alone, into the sunset
Left foot, right foot, 1 2, mic check

Brewin' funk inside my soul kitchen
So pull up a chair, here's a bit have a listen
Of hard head intervene, damn, I know you're fluent
Yeah 'cause Doodle ain't havin' it and Butterfly knew it
Where you from?

Venus acts a fool at the square, right? Yeah
Doctors, engineer in apparel, right? Yeah
Hip-Hop made a point last year, right? Yeah
But Planets is the joint this year, right? Yeah

Planets got the dubs and live to grass-hop
Duck out from the fuzz that sweat the hip-hop
Risin' like we foam, get it from the dome
I'm from where the fat beats stretch for mad blocks

We can get a kit without no thread
Feelin' funky beats go straight to the head
Fall into a club, dig on what we love
It be past six before we reach bed

Butter freaks on relics we say those are fat
Doodle makin' silk, LaQuan, where it's at?
We need to stack a sack for rap to take us dap
So we treat our clips just like bustin' caps

Rip it til dawn, kick it til dawn
Hip-Hop is the fix or else, we be gone
People thought they canned it, rap is not by bandits
Digable Planets got it, goin' on

Everywhere, every, every where
Everywhere, every, every where
Everywhere, every, every where
