Once again BRAND NUBIAN! Who about to rock shit? Once again BRAND NUBIAN! . Super splashy with that head knot Once again BRAND NUBIAN! Verse Two: Lord Jamar The rap legend, never pushed a Legend, gripped the mic With my bredderns, like Kryptonite we steal your powers Like Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos we come back To reveal the seventh seal, the drum track’s the soundtrack For war - hardcore righteous, the nicest Comin with advice that’s priceless, to help the crisis.

Foundation, the first album since Brand Nubian's 1990 debut to feature all four original members, is an incredible return to form. The rhymes by Grand Puba, Sadat X, and Lord Jamar are as striking as they were on the group's breakout, and the focus on message tracks is a refreshing turn from the rap world's played-out tales of thug life. Don't Let It Go to Your Head" is a cautionary tale for arrogant one-hit rappers, while "Probable Cause" is a scathing attack on the notorious tactics of the New Jersey State Police and "I'm Black and I'm.

Brand Nubian formed in 1989 and their first single, "Brand Nubian," was released in 1989. Signed to Elektra Records by A&R man Dante Ross, their debut album, One For All, was released in 1990. Generally acclaimed, the album drew fire for militant Five-Percenter rhetoric on tracks such as "Drop the Bomb" and "Wake U. The controversy helped selling in excess of 40. 00 copies. In early 1993, Brand Nubian released their second album, In God We Trust, which included the song "Punks Jump Up to Get Beat Down" and the number 92 Hot-100 single "Love Me or Leave Me Alone. That same year, the group's song "Lick Dem Muthaphuckas" was released as part of the Menace II Society soundtrack. Brand Nubian’s next release, Everything is Everything, came out in November 1994.
