Come on and yes y'all. You are now in tune to the sounds... ... Of the legendary Foundation.

Hey, you listeners. Stop what you're doing And set it in motion. It's the next movement. Hey, you listeners. Stop what you're doing. And set it in motion. It's the next movement. Word up! We got the hot, hot music. The hot music. The hot, hot music. The hot music.

Yo! One. Two. One two. One two. That's how we usually start. Once again it's The Thought. The Dali Lama of the mic. The Prime Minister Thought. This directed to whoever in listening range. Yo! The whole state of things in the world about to change. Black rain falling from the sky look strange. The ghetto is red hot. We stepping on flames.

Yo! It's inflation on the price for fame. And it was all the same, but then the antidote came. The Black Thought, ill syllablist, out The Fifth. This heavyweight rap shit I'm about to lift. Like a phyllum lift up its seed to sunlight. I plug in the mic. Draw like a gunfight. I never use a cordless or stand applaudless. Sipping cholorophyll out of ill, silver goblets. I'm like a faucet. Monopoly's the object. There ain't no way to cut this tap. You got to get wet. Your head is throbbing, and I ain't said shit yet. The Roots crew. The next movement. Come on!

Hey, you listeners. Stop what you're doing and set it in motion. It's the next movement. Word up! We got the hot, hot music. The hot music. The hot, hot music. The hot music.

Word up! The formation of words to fit. That's what I usually disturb you with. A lot of rappers never heard of this or know half the time it is. You doubt the Ill Fifth? What could you accomplish? Whether they skywriting your name, or you anonymous. You be speechless with stinging sinuses. The Roots royal highnesses through your monitors. I tilt my crown then blow down a diamond kiss. You need to buy a CD and stop rewinding this. I'm the finalist shining like a rugged amethyst. And at your music conference, I'm the panelist. Listen close to my poetry. I examine this. Like an analyst to see if you can handle this.

Check it out! You got the groove, MCs. Freeze. Stand still. Nobody move unless you dealing with The Next Movement. The P-Phi-D. We be the monument. I live my life nice, but I'm not too bent. You theatrical as a Broadway play. This ain't Rent. 100% straight out the basement. Spreading this across a planet on some next shit. How many people feeling this love music? Come on!

Hey, you listeners. Stop what you're doing and set it in motion. It's the next movement. We got the hot, hot music. The hot music. The hot, hot music. The hot music.
