"Nuff' of The Ruff' Stuff'" Music Lyrics
Get funky with it[ verse 1 ]I told you before: you burn when you play with fireSo take off your hats, matter of fact hail the new sireYou’re hungry as hell, so I’m cookin up the chowderIt’s laced with ingredients, gon’ come on like gunpowderPom-pom! lick a shot, then I got to orderI’m runnin for the border for causin disorderPom-pom! lick a shot, got on my defensesI’m runnin for the fences, of course I’m relentlessThe particular name of this queen is latifahI’ve often been classified as a feminine teacherCollectively capture the heart of a nationLove my culture and show appreciationYou’re lookin for the black influ’? I do want too give it to youWhat are you mad? Give me some of what you had!You can huff-huff, puff-puff and bluff-bluffBut I got nuff of the ruff stuff(ruff and tuff)(and all that stuff)[ verse 2 ]Now nuff of the ruff stuff, that’s what I do, and I do it wellThe proof is in the puddin, I show and prove, not show and tellTalk tales, you get caught up in a crossfireBuckshot must be what you want and desireI write concepts, I don’t be frontin or be bugginI solely write the rhymes for the beats that you be lovinIt’s a love thang, the queen doin her thangIf I was a liquid, you would drink me like tanq’You think I’m kickin things that I myself don’t even heed? I rap not for the love of music, but for greed? Latifah’s booty, yo, she could never succeedShiiit…You watch me do it and boom it, the flavor unit will snap necksYou a-fi listen a likkle, you fi go buy the cassetteYou’re starvin, cause you ain’t had enoughThat’s right, nuff of the ruff stuff(ruff and tuff)(and all that stuff)[ verse 3 ]You talk about flavor…I got enough flavor to make a grapefruit sweetGet old ladies jumpin out of their seatsChange a peach to a pear to a plum with a little sun ’n raysI got flavor for daysNow I’m the type that the fellas call a honey, and>from me you know you get a worth for your money, andThis is no meaningless attack, I gave you a chanceMatter of fact, yo, I ordered them to ’danceFor me’, they tried to turn me ’inside out’They felt the ’wrath of my madness’, I let them ’come into my house’It’s called ’latifah’s law’, for the criminal to curseAnd all the gentlemen know it’s rule: ’ladies first’Not the typical female that tends toFall vitim to the ’evil that men do’Small puff, I call your bluffI’m not mad, I just had enuff of the ruff stuff(ruff and tuff)(and all that stuff)Everybody know latifah love positivityNow positivity erase negativityMi comin inna di dance ? ? ? Me rollin with the flavor unit posseAs a black woman mi want equalityEquality, and di freedom to be meMi have a mother rita, only call her mommyLikkle brother and sister, angelo and kellyA brother in them laws, but mi call him winkiLost mi daddy and ? ? ? family? ? ? black ? ? ? black countryBelieve in one god, one tribe, one destinyCease!
