Hip Hop Lyrics: De La Soul

This song has been in my head all day. The Hip Hop Trio, De La Soul, takes me back to college around 1989 to the early 90's. The members of the group are: Kelvin Mercer (Posdnuos, Mercenary, Plug Wonder Why, Plug One), David Jude Jolicœur (Trugoy the Dove, Dave, Plug Two) and Vincent Mason (P.A. Pasemaster Mase, Maseo, Plug Three). They put the Hippie in Hip Hop and I was one of their disciples. Believe it or not they are an influence in my writing. So, all sing along to my favorite song while the pocket transitors are playing! Have a great weekend!


Album title: 3 Feet High and Rising (1989)
Song: Plug Tunin'
"Dazed at the sight of a method
Dying at the death of a neverending verse
Gasping and swallowing every last letter
Vocalised liquid holds the quench of your thirst
Reasons for the rhythm is for causes unknown
Different individuals are dazzled with the showbiz
Auditions are gathered but the soul would just rather
Hold a count at three and in the end leave it as it is
Flow to the sway of my do-re-mi
Leaving are fixed lunatics who will hawk
Words are sent to the vents of humans
Then converted to a phrase called talk
Musical notes will send a new motto
Every last poem is recited at noon
Focus is set, let your polaroids click
As they capture the essence of a naughty noise called
Plug tunin'"
