The Roots The Seed 2.0
The Roots The Seed 2.0

Today is a special day, as the legendary Questlove celebrates his 50th birthday. Having played an integral role in developing the iconic and genre-bending sound of The Roots, Quest has been widely hailed as one of hip-hop’s most accomplished musicians — and for good reason. Having amassed an incredible discography to his name, it’s difficult to single out a specific track. However, there’s something electric about The Roots Phrenology crossover classic “The Seed 2.0,” on which Quest provides a sturdy backbone with plenty of swagger.

Speaking of, “The Seed 2.0” is about as debonnair an anthem as they come, fueled by twangy guitar chords, a dominant bassline, and Quest’s controlled drum work. Black Thought and Cody ChestnuTT hold down the vocal honors, the former’s gravelly storytelling the perfect contrast to the latter’s soulful vocals. “She want platinum or ice and gold, she want a whole lot of something to fold,” raps Thought, his flow locked in an infectious scheme. “If you an obstacle, she just drop you cold cause one monkey don’t stop the show.” Though he doesn’t provide any vocals, Quest’s presence is certainly felt throughout, especially by way of his subtle yet impactful fills.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Black Thought]
Knocked up 9 months ago
And what she finna have? She don’t know
She want neo-soul, this hip-hop is old
She don’t want no Rock n’ Roll
She want platinum or ice and gold
She want a whole lot of something to fold
If you a obstacle, she just drop you cold
Cause one monkey don’t stop the show
Little Mary is bad, and these streets she done ran
Ever since when the heat began
I told her “Girl, look here, calm down, I’mma hold your hand
To enable you to peep the plan, cause you’s quick to learn
We can make money to burn if you allow me to lay this game”
I don’t ask for much but enough room to spread my wings
And the world finna know my name

[Verse 2: Cody Chesnutt]
I don’t ask for much these days
And I don’t bitch and whine if I don’t get my way
I only want to fertilize another behind my lover’s back
I sit and watch it grow roots standing where I’m at
Fertilize another behind my lover’s back
And I’m keeping my secrets mine

[Hook 1: Cody Chesnutt]
I push my seed in her bush for life
It’s gonna work because I’m pushing it right
If Mary drops my baby girl tonight
I would name her “Rock n’ Roll”

[Verse 3: Black Thought]
Uh huh, Cadillac need space to roam
Where we heading for? She don’t know
We in the city where the pros shake, rattle, and roll
And I’m a gad-dang rolling stone
I don’t beg, I can hold my own
I don’t break, I can hold the chrome
And it’s weighing a ton and I’m a son of a gun
My code name is The Only One
And Black Thought is bad, these streets he done ran
Ever since when the game began
I never played the fool, matter of fact, I been keeping it cool
Since money been changing hands, and I’m left to shine
The legacy that I leave behind be the seed that’ll keep the flame
I don’t ask for much, but enough room to spread these wings
And the world finna know my name, now listen to me

[Verse 4: Cody Chesnutt]
I don’t beg from no rich man
And I don’t scream and kick
When his shit don’t fall in my hands, man
Cause I know how to steal
Fertilize another against my lover’s will
I lick the opposition cause she don’t take no pill
Ooh, ooh, ooh no, dear
You’ll be keeping my legend alive

[Hook 1: Cody Chesnutt]
I push my seed in her bush for life
It’s gonna work because I’m pushing it right
If Mary drop my baby girl tonight
I would name her “Rock-n-roll”
Oh, break it down, break it down, down for me

[Hook 2: Cody Chesnutt]
I push my seed somewhere deep in her chest
I push it naked cause I’ve taken my test
Delivering Mary: it don’t matter the sex
I’m gonna name it “Rock-N-Roll”

[Hook 1: Cody Chesnutt]
I push my seed in her bush for life
It’s gonna work because I’m pushing it right
If Mary drop my baby girl tonight
I would name her “Rock-n-roll”
I would name her “Rock-n-roll”
I would name her “Rock-n-roll”, yeah
I would name it “Rock-n-roll”
