Brand Nubian Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down Lyrics

[Diamond]
Step up, step up and catch a bad one...

[Sadat X]
A lot of kids is wondering, or hoping that I fell
You are here to talk and I'm here to ****ing walk
Let me ask a little something, I let my track record float
*****s want to play me, and say I go broke
But dig it, the way I figure it's one less man
It's more cash in my hand

[Lord Jamar]
Yeah, you know what I'm saying? Give it here, baby
You know what I'm saying, mo' money, mo' **********ing money

[Sadat X]
Well uh King's bridge, do you got a man?
I'm asking you the question, don't try to front
Cause if he's asking for a present he can get one
I won't hesitate, rather be first than late
Hoe there's your man now, yo he'd better chill
See I had to lick him, why'd I do it?
**** you knew it, money ****ed around and blew it
John Wayne couldn't even stand the reign of the Tec
Do I get respect on the mic, wreck
My name is X of the Nubian breed
Got one seed but I don't chill, let the wax proceed

Step up, step up and catch a bad one
Punks jump up to get beat down! (Repeat 2x)

[Diamond]
Well it's the kid boy wonder, straight from the under
Ground with the Nubians, so engineer cue me and I wreck ****
Pick up the loot and it's on to the next skit
Beat down a punk and I'm out through the exit
So baby get into a thing
Cause Diamond is dope, there's no need to mope
I make jams that slam but I'm not souped up
If I'm not with a stunt then I'm home couped up
Making hits from pieces and bits
*****s still talk ****, but I pop 'em like a zit
Straight from the Bronx with the kids from the Now Rule
Together on the joint was a definite power move
Yeah, so yo kid feel the funk
Diamond is out and beating down all punks
So step up, if you want to keep your rep up
I don't have to smoke a blunt to get pepped up

Punks jump up to get beat down!
Step up, step up and catch a bad one (Repeat 2x)

[Lord Jamar]
Well punk ************s try to flex on the G-O-D
But like I said yo the Gods must be crazy
So it don't phase me or my gat
Just put up your thangs and then we start to slang joints
Scoring points like a Genesis
Everybody down with my crew are ****ing menaces
To society, cause society failed to embrace the black male variety
So that's why we're so damn hostile
Beat a ************ down like he was a stepchild
Break him up in the ribs with the knuckles of brass
Take off my belt and then I buckle your ***
You say you've never ran but we'll have you running fast
Lord Jamal is quick to blast when

Punks jump up to get beat down!
Step up, step up and catch a bad one
Step up, step up and catch a bad one
