Cold Lampin' with Flavor


I love PE so much its not even funny. Especially the old cracked-out Flavor Flav. New Flav is aiiight but I prefer the Basehead Syndrome version.

"Night of the Living Baseheads"


His solo tracks on various PE albums are some of my favorites. Cold Lampin' with Flavor in particular. I put some links up for the best of It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, but I find the lyrics are just hilarious when reading them alone...

Cold Lampin

I’m lampin, I’m lampin, I’m cole cole lampin
I got loowies boy, I’m not trampin
I just came from Da-crib ya know
I’m on the go-throw ya tank into metro
Live lyrics from the bank of reality
I kick the flyest dope maneuver technicality
To a dope track, you wanna hike git out ya backpack
I’m in my Flav-mobile cole lampin
I took dis g upstate cole lampin
Ta da poke-a-nose, we call da hide-a-ways
A pack of franks and a big bag of frito lays

Flavor-Flav on a hype tip
I’m ya hype drink, come take a big sip
I’m in position, you can't play me out da pocket
I'll take da dopest beat you got and I'll rock-it
Like chocolate, even vanilla - chocolate, strawberry, sasparilla
Flavors are electric - try me - get a shock-a
Didn't I tell you leave Flavor Flav alone, knock-a?
A clock on my chest proves I don't fess
I'm a clock-a, rock-a rockin' wit-da-rest
Flavor in da house by Chuck-D's side
Chuck got da Flavor-Flav don't hide
P.E. crazy, Crazy P.E. - makin' crazy loowies (?) for the shoppin spree

Ya eatin death cause ya like gittin dirt from da graveyard - ya put
gravy on it
Then ya pick ya teeth with tomb stone chips
And casket cover clips - dead women hips ya do da bump with - bones
Nuttin but love bones
Lifestyles of the Live-en-dead
First ya live den ya dead - died trying ta clock what I said
Now I got a murder rap cause I bust ya cap with Flavor - pure
Flavor

We got Magnum Brown, Shoothki - Valoothki
Super-calafraga-hestik-alagoothki
You could put that in ya don't know what I said book
Took-look-yuk-duk-wuk
Shinavative ill factors by da Flavor Flav
Come and ride the Flavor wave
In any year on any givin day
What a brova know - what do Flavor say
Why do dis record play dat way
Prime time merrily in da day
Right now dis radio station is busy - brainknowledgeably wizzy
Honey drippers, you say you got it
You ain't got no flavor and I can prove it
Flavor Flav the flav of all flavors
Onion an garlic french fried potatas
Make ya breath stink, breathe fire
Makes any onion tha best crier

I know it sounds crazy but it fits perfect
Peter perfect pimped a perfect Peter
Honey dripper - sucker sipper - big dipper - sucker dipper
Drippin suckers like its goin out-a-style
Creatin flavors for the Flavor Flav pile
Lampin booyee madina style

Kickin tha flavor gittin busy
Ya goin ouut, I think ya dizzy
I think ya hungry, cause ya starvin for Flavor
Flavor most, put it on toast
Eat it-en taste it en swallow it down
Imperial Flavor gives you the crown
Of the king called Flavor, da king of all flavors
Rolls an rolls an rolls life savers
Flavor Flav is in everything ya eat cause everything ya eat got
flavor
Flavor Flav is the first taste ya git in the mornin - ya breakfast is
da flavor
In between the lunch - in between that dinner - in between dats the
midnight flavor
Yeah, thats right I got somethin fa all da fandangoes of damangoes of
da fandangoes of da mangoes >????
