Heard this today and can't get enough of it! I've looked everywhere I can just for any information about this song and it kills me that there isn't a Wiki page. This is Hip Hop at its best and I can only hope that when my day comes, I can be ready. I wanna be ready!

I'm instantly in Love! Just like I was as a teen when I first heard De La Soul! Lyrical content that addresses the intellect with real life flava.

Wow, for years and years these brothers have consistently blessed us with dopeness. Not many crews can maintain the quality of music that they have for this long. This joint in particular demonstrates serious sincerity and heart. And man I'm really feelin' it, word up.

First heard this song in 2001 when i was DJing at my local college radio station. This song helped me to understand what Hip Hop really could be and pushed me to find real Hip Hop artists, not the commercish on the radio. Long Live Conscious Hip Hop.
