Fresh from the meadow with a mellow attitude / I was plannin' to persue another quest for the bus / I had to go to San Fran, it's something that I can't stand / It's beggin' for a ride with ma dukes makes a fuss / I don't like fussin' so I ask my older cousin / Could he maybe find time to give the D-E-L a lift / He said it is impossible because he has a roster full of plans for the day / I had to go and sift through pennies in my jeans / To many it may seem that the public transportation really isn't keen / And I agree with the theory / Because it's 3:30 and the bus was due at 2:35 / I iron my Girbauds so I can wait with pride / I waited at the bus stop feeling kinda high / From a spliff that I smoked / I riffed and provoked / A liitle scene when the bus arrived late like a joke / With a corny punchline / And it was only lunchtime / The bus should've been here, the driver had much time / To get his act together / No matter what the weather / Now I'm sittin' at the bus stop waitin' like forever
When oh when is the bus gonna come / I'm getting sick and tired of the wait / When oh when is the bus gonna come / Well here comes a pack of about 14 / Lookin' real mean with hoodies and jeans / And bad attitudes and I wasn't in the mood / For no head on collision with the hoods / Try to use my transfer but it's no good / Would these rough lookin' kids get busy with the youngsta / Amongst the many who must catch rapid transit to get through the city / I'm not certain / But if I go sit in the back it's curtains / Kids wanna ride the back / What kinda shit is that? / Nowadays niggas can't wait to hit the back / Let me stand in the front with the elderly / So those other cats won't raise hell with me
Oh golly gee, not another day on the 46A / I should've caught the 46B / 'Cause dukes takes the mass scene and group through the trees / And shoots the breeze with the ladies / Look at that around the way girl / Yeah, I see her / (whistle) More crack than a drug dealer / A kid sits by me with a gang of afro sheen on / I'm not Joe Clark and I would hate for him to lean on / My shoulder and try to hold a conversation / 'Cause I don't have the patience / When oh when is the bus gonna reach its destination / Question over space and time / Wastin' time / Word up, I can't take this line of nitwits / I'm about to have a fit quick / 'Cause this trip here is making me car sick / Check out the brother with the loaded .38 / Braggin' to his buddies about the money that he makes / Sellin' crack viles like pancakes / To baseheads just like the one / That's sittin by the window starvin' for a fix / He spent his last 80 cents on fare / He raises up and lets me get in his chair / Then I sit and take a snooze / But I still lose / 'Cause I cruise right past my stop / Had to get off and walk 15 blocks. . .

This album is a classic through and through...I remember hearing it back in 2011 and I couldn't stop listening to it back then, was always hards to find except on youtube so I'm glad I was finally able to buy it here. From the instrumentals to the lyrical content, this album will always go down as one of my favorite underground albums not even that greatest hip hop album in history. Conscious, and emotional! true_monolith
