Word Play Lyrics - A Tribe Called Quest

Review The Song (2)

One, two, what'cha wanna do
Three, four, cuz we're gonna give you more
Five, six, and we ain't the tricks
Seven, eight, and we got it straight
Nine, ten, cuz we make it blend
Eleven, twelve, never ever goin for self
Tribe Called Quest situation
Check it out

Power. People really get caught with this on different levels
Power controls your life
Money. The companion of the first. Some people tend to worship
And we know this ain't right.

Attitude(attitude) is how I get my point across.
sponsored links
You can't call yourself an MC if you know that you're soft.
Agressive...is how the stage is approached. I burn MCs like toast
Cuz I'm the host with the most.

Illin(illin) is what you do when you're assin.
Whether it be you or all up in your past and...
Cashin...done turned your people corrupt
It's six o'clock, girl, you gotta get your weight up

Sex(sex). Either a man or a woman.
This agenda, but when lovers get down
Froggin. When niggaz try to play roles
But when they really need to put that shit background

Miserable(miserable) is what your whole crew will be
If you're not original and you show no strategy
Heavenly...is how the track tends to flow
And if you don't know, tell em diggy said so

We livin this cuz it's deep in our bones
A Tribe Called Quest with this hip hop jones
So sit and analyze the lyrical spray
Cuz all it really is is word play(word play)(word)

Willie. That's what I kick to get this Millie on a lilly
Now, I'm packin dimes like Chilli
Stress(stress). That's what I always go through
Cuz it's survival of the fittest on the 192

Knowledge. When the mind accept facts
On this plane of livin, knowledge be the key, black
Understanding. Gettin a grip on what's revealed
When shit be real, can't give understanding back

Analyze. That's what I do to MCs
That be talkin bout they this and that, money please
Ego. I'm on my own jock skill
Cuz if I don't say I'm the best, tell me who the hell will

Cheeba smoke y'all. That's what I use to get high
When I'm in a rut and I don't know why
Try. Yo try again my friend
Cuz you can't see this MC representin Linden

Freestyle(freestyle). A true MC trait
And when you do it ill, niggaz respect it as great
Yo, I gotta...(laughing)

We livin this cuz it's deep in our bones
A Tribe Called Quest with the hip hop jones
So sit and analyze the lyrical spray
Cuz all it really is is word play(word play)

HipHop and rap culture opened up to me cos of these guys | Reviewer: Malleha | 11/19/10

I'm only young, 13 actually, still in my third year of high school but I still know great music, and word Play is definatley on my list for great music. And so are the people who made this song, A tribe called quest. They're mint no doubt, one of the best hiphop groups there are. Plus they were on my brothers ipod and he gave it to me and I didn't know who they were so I listened to their album, Beats, Rhymes and life and Every song was unbelievable I loved all of them. I already knew some good songs but they really opened up my eye to another world, HipHop and Rap. Since then I keep listening to loads of different rappers like Talib Kweli, Nas, Mos Def, Common and the one I'm most inspired by Tupac. And word play is one of my favorite songs, a top tune, especially when you come home and your fed up and tired of everything its great to listen to when you just wanna chill.
