Artist :Big Daddy Kane
Album :Long Live the Kane
Title :

Word to the Mother (Land)

Grab a hold of yourselfopen your eyes
Get wise to the exercise
Being taught by the teacher thatís most dominant
You need knowledge?
Well Iím dropping it
Listen to the rap allow it to trap
Your body and soul so that you can adapt
To the man on display as I take you away
So may I?
<Yes you may!>
Proud to be a Black man
Coming exact and
Giving up to brothers five on the back hand
Pray for lease and peace upon each other
With my sisters and brothers
<Marley Marl: yoword to the mother!>
I say the motheras in the motherland
But on the other handanother man
Tackled and shackled our ancestors
But we beat him with freedomso letís bless the
Country that we all came from
Because the moral of it all is we shall overcome
The cream will keep rising
We be sizing
Upthe Asiatic one is enterprising
Building and building to carry on
All the way from Malcolm X to Farrakhan
Martin Luther was a tutormany were pupils
Those who fell victim were those without scruples
Howeverto severwe could never
So hold up the peace sign and stand together
Take heed to the words that I manifest
And when Iím through speakingMarley Marlíll do the rest

<James Brown getting cut up:
We gotta get overbefore we go under (x2)
Letís get together> (x2)
<Marley Marl?:
Yo Big Daddywhat you gonna say now?>

Take a stand the fight for power
Cause weíve been here before the Mayflower
Living superior abiding by nature
The history of the Asiatic one paid the
Price to be paid in slavery
Like the name of Antonio was gave to me
But knowledge of self broke every shackle and chain
Now I declare myself as the Big Daddy Kane
The teacherteaching a lesson to be heard
Thatís wordto the mother my brother
So discover the truth of one another
Cause hereís the real deal upon our skin color
Lay down whiteyellowred or pink
But the color of black is most dominant
The rising and sizing can never cease
<Marley Marl: what you going say now?>

<Farrakhan: ...the mother of all living things and the Black man
is the original manwe just canít escape our destiny>

<Word to the mother!> (x2)

<Farrakhan: I thank Allah for allowing me to teach this subject today
Crowd: yeahthatís right...>
