Yo yo, hey man, ain't you guys among, Plug One? Plug Two?
Potholes in my Lawn? You're those weird guys, De La Soul, right?
Yeah, what's up little man, how you feeling? I'm Dove, how you feeling?
Yo what's up man? My name is Pos, yo yo I'm Mase
Yo shorty, what's your name?

Oh, my name? Jeff, you guys are walking?
Now rappers ain't supposed to walk, sorry little man, but you know
Jeff, I told you, my name is Jeff, if you guys are rappers
Where's your dukey gold chains? y'all don't have no dukey gold chains
We don't wear gold chains, we'd rather spend our money on more Important things like, equipment, necessities and video games

Y'all are crazy, no chains, dag, okay, where's your BMW?
You're not supposed to walk, where's your jeeps, your Maximas?
Maximas? Yo, Maxin' would break my flow and with the cause of gas
Jeff man, I'd rather take the transit that's mass

What you say? You are see are A Z E E, crazee
Don't you know you can't be def if you don't have no gold?
Or a car, man? What's up? Who told you that?
Everybody who's def has gold, cars, money, girls, clothes

Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute shorty, you're buggin'
Do you like Plug Tunin' and Potholes? Yeah that song's def
But we don't wear no gold chains, nor do we ride BMW's
And Maxes or Jeeps, but you still think our music is def, right?
Wait a minute, did I say 'def'? Rrah! What?

Nothing, nothing, it's just that we don't deal with all that
Materialistic stuff, but we still got what it takes to please
And supply our listeners, understand my man?
Where's your beepers? Why don't you have beepers?
Everybody wears beepers, you have to have beepers to look down

Augh, little man is brainwashed indeed
Nah, nah, beepers are the least of status situators, man
Plus I find them ugly as parking tickets, you guys talk funny
Well ,actually our verbal is kinetic, so when released flow A to Z
Is perfectly pitched in andvance in intricacy

Yeah, you homeboys are really bugged
Wait a minute, did he say, bugged? Rrah!
So no car, no beepers, no gold, that's weak man, that's weak
Jesus, did he say weak? Jesus, they never learn
Foolish mind, have I, have I actin' like that lady, that lady
Peace, my brother

    General CommentThis interlude in the album describes EVERYTHING that is wrong with hip hop today.

    Youngsters grow up aspiring to be these rich, pimped out, soulless, materialistic, celebrities...surrounded by wealth and slutty girls who want their money, instead of wanting to get into hip hop because they love music.

    De La Soul arrived at a time in Hip Hop when they slowly saw this going on around them and saw groups and individuals they once looked up to selling out and just wanting money and fame and bitches instead of wanting to send out a positive message and just make an impact on music that would last for generations instead of just trying to get a quick buck.

    You can still get fame and wealth and not flaunt it like a status symbol.
    De La is amazing and has always stayed true.

    Most modern rappers today just see rap (i say rap because there is a difference between true hip hop and 'rap') as a way to become rich and attract ladies instead of a way to express yourself and make a positive impact on their listeners.

    All praise De La Soul and all those in the hip hop world that still remember when hip how was about fun, community, respect, and just kickin it mad niggerish.
