"Excursions (Tribute Remix)"
[feat. De La Soul]

[J. Period cuts and scratches]
[Q-Tip:] "Back in the days when I was a teenager? "
[B.I.G.:] "Remember back in the days? "
{J. Period}
[Q-Tip:] "Back in the days when I was a teenager? "
[B.I.G.:] "Remember back in the days? "

[Verse 1: Posdnuos]
Aiyyo, J. Period want you to understand...
[Trugoy:] ("Your fantasy back in the days was to be Native")
("Word up! ") This is the De La version... of "Excursions"
Check it out...
Back in the day when I was a teenager
When we signed to Tommy Boy instead of the major
You could find work-matic listenin to hip-hop
Tryin to add the right ingredients and not the flip-flop
Sturred it from the tip-top, add it in the bottom
Ears brought the eye/I so you know we had to dot 'em
For the ones who gave the upgrade to us
The upstage and thrust pass all the chumps
In the ledge to ledge, I clear the whole jump
NEVER fall off! Stop waitin for the thump!
The only fracture is your disbelief
On how Posdnuos still cookin up the beef and broccoli
("Damn right") Stir-fried mics, red curry on Soul
The other brand is bland, put 'em on hold
Roll with the brand you trust
Double decade, no trouble, no rust
No main-tenance, we exceeded all your expectations
Rap formations we studied
By chance we out-run the outcome
We stand as prophets warring over drums
And we appreciate it, 'cause we ever so glad we made it
We work hard, so we had to thank God
And relevant the squad, been ever since y'all
So I need to make sure I thank my nigga Prince Paul (Prince PAUL)
You here to start SHIT, don't try to play me
If you hear the dance then shake, shake it baby
All the way to Africa, Mase got the weed to blow
I be in Conchasa, sippin on some Vitalo
Since the Nile warning in the Congo, I'm back on the scene
With the Abstract, ridin through Queens
Tellin him how to get them Tribe fanatics to shape ("What? ")
Tell 'em Tribe didn't break-up, they just takin a break
And just move...

[Chorus: Sample chorus of "Excursions" by A Tribe Called Quest]
We gotta make moves
Never, ever, ever could we fake moves
Hah, yeah, we need to make moves
Tell 'em Tribe didn't break-up, they just takin a break
And just MOVE... We gotta make moves
Never, EVER, ever could we FAKE moves
Yeah, we need to make moves

[The Last Poets:]
"Time... time is a ship on a merciless sea
Drifting toward an average of nothingness (Yeah, it's the De La version... of "Excursions")
Until it can be retarded for it's own destiny
TIME is an inanimate object (J. Period... WOO!)
Praying and praying and praying for?
Time is DANCING, moving lingering all memories of past... "

[Jungle Brothers:] ("De La Soul... is dead! ")
[Run-D.M.C.:] ("HELL NO! ")

[Verse 2: Dave]
You gotta be a winner all the time
Can't fall prey to a hip hop crime
With these dope raps and dope tracks you move heads
Went from B-Boys to bein dope boys instead
Musically the Quest, never compromised
With the new version let the dated one slide
Continuin a legacy, true to the shit
If you don't know us then you're new to the shit
So what you gonna do with the times that exist?
Can't fake moves on your man or your sis
But if your sis is a bird, your man is a clown
Then have an intervention sit they dumb asses down
Whatever it may be in today's society
"Everything is Fair" at least it's how it seems to me
As long as you're candid, earn your respect
And if they play phony then they gotta get checked
Especially if you're rhymin, live by the pen
Your man is your man, then treat him like your friend
We 'gon play it by the code of the streets
So listen to the gems, flooded over beats
Beats that are hard, beats that are funky
Make you get a your hook like a can of mean junkies
What you gotta do is know that fam is in the sphere
The Poet 86 is prominent like Shakespeare
[Q-Tip:] ("Edgar Allen Poe... ")

[Chorus: Sample chorus of "Excursions" by A Tribe Called Quest (Dave)]
We gotta make moves
Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (Can't fake the moves y'all)
We gotta make moves
Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (De La, Tribe Called Quest, J. Period)
C'mon, we gotta make moves
Never, ever, ever could we fake moves (come on!)
We gotta make moves
Never, ever, ever could we fake MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVES...

"Time is running out on black power Africans today
And whites blacks reporters at night
Everytime you see them? with their tongues hangin out
Time is running and past and passing and running
Running and past and passing and running (excursions)"

[Outro: Pos]
Excursionnnnnnnnnnnnnnns, Na-na-NAH-NAH-NAH!
