Brand Nubian

Verse one: Lord Jamar

Brand Nubian function

A junction of three

Collaboration in a style that's like funk

To slap palms, swing arms

Tap a soul

Cause no rock rolls down our hill

Yo black it's kinda ill

We don't roll no rocks we just fill

Heads with knowledge, pure foundation

Showing and proving through the manifestation

Of our name which is "Brand Nu"

Brand Nubian and we've come to

Make the people aware that black means first

4000 years and we're made to feel cursed

But now it's our time to rule

Student of the old, teacher of the new school

My inspiration is the five percent nation

As I cram, education was born

Like a thorn in your side I have sworn

Never to divide with Brand Nubian

Verse Two: Derrick X (Sadat X)

You have to stand as a black man

Brand Nubian

From the Sudan plus I never ran

I'm from Africa, the central region

There I grew and formed a legion of my force

See me riding on a jet black horse at any cost

Brand Nubians will rise up and be the boss and show it

All fairness if you're black and show awareness

You can rally 'round the flag

Stand tall, or don't stand at all

You're with the three and the three won't sag to the floor

Besides picture that I'm painting I can draw

See me work nine to five on my easel

My physical is strong and my mind is cock diesel

Brand Nubian function in conjunction with the three

Verse 3: Grand Puba

Brand Nubian

Not on a bandwagon following a fad

Making use of the knowledge that we already had

Grand Pu, here to send the mind into a frenzy

I bet I'll swing something this summer for the benzi

Seep into the mind the brain and activate the pelvis

Keeping the blind deaf dumb and blind is Elvis

Meaning old, so behold

(The black, the beautiful, the bold)

Now if this falls short I'll try harder

A wisdom to me is someone like Assata

I'd like to say peace to Bambaata

Tasa Kuma(?), Achmed, and Kenyatta

Brothers that'll fight for the cause

And they live in the boundaries of the righteous laws

To put it exact dominant means black

But some have a hard time trying to swallow that

Now we have some that are fake

Wearing blue eyes and green eyes, come on gimme a break

Brand Nubian here to wake up

Take off the makeup cause all it'll do is cake up

Just be real that's how I feel

Brand Nubian

Verse four


(DX) A native or inhabitant of Nubia


(LJ) A member of one of a group of African tribes that formed a poweful

Empire between Egypt and Ethiopia

from the 6th to 14th century Nubian

(GP) Any of several languages spoken in the central and northern Sudan

And that's why we call ourselves Brand Nubian

(DX) As the midnight oil burns, our minds turn

Make a mistake and be fake and you'll burn

We're here to teach so you'd might as well learn

That the tree has the knowledge for what you yearn

Brand Nubian
