    Lyrics

    [Hook 4X: samples scratched by DJ Premier]
    "Uprising surprising"
    "Knowledge wisdom understanding"

    [Afu-Ra]
    Smooth like Johnny Cochran, I keep it movin through Brooklyn
    Base against the hymn, brings the sweat to the skin
    Reminisce of the days as a shorty
    Had no stress, no bills, was comin for me
    I lived it up, yeah, money ain't a thing
    Never thought twice on what my future bring
    Role models, naw I thought nothing of it
    Eyes fixed on skies and planes fly high above it
    Summer's comin, September's middle school
    Mom Dukes mad strict, she'll never raise a fool
    I'm comin up, clean the dirty from the ghetto
    So we can plant some seeds and watch them grow

    [Chorus]
    Right, knowledge wisdom understanding rules, right
    Everybody got to pay the dues, right
    Knowledge, wisdom understanding rules
    Everybody got to pay the dues

    [Afu-Ra]
    Tripped up by bad luck, 16 years and buck
    I realized the world might end, not givin up
    Stickin up, runnin up, comin up
    Turn it up, I see signs of blowin up
    Study life in every facet of my trainin
    We need masters in biology, zoology
    To overtake, Illuminati trick-nology
    Transform, reciprocate your mental state
    Now make a date to overtake your objective
    Show that through light, that everything is connected
    But not in categories, that's the Devil's story
    Symbols of cannibalism, ruin your vision
    The thoughts formulate in your mind with no precision
    So reenact, a rebirth, now you're the Phoenix
    When shorties see it, now that's the time they believe it
    Achieve it, your goals in life, don't be a casualty
    Infinite and intricate, monument

    "Knowledge wisdom understanding"

    [Chorus]

    [Afu-Ra]
    Right, knowledge wisdom understanding, rules

    "Uprising, surprising"

    [Afu-Ra]
    I know the next millennium seems like it's cursed
    That's why I have to rehearse
    Tune my physical, mental spits the lyrical
    It's so essential, transcends thoughts I'm into
    As we continue, touch rhyme styles I'm into
    All grown up, Junior High to 25
    A made man, tight connection with my brothers
    Bridgin gaps, dodgin traps with my raps
    Signs you're followin, shed more light
    Then a halogen, take a step back, now who you followin?

    [Chorus 2X]

    [Hook 4X]
