The Phuncky Feel One

A buddy of mine introduced me to this group when I was in high school. At first I didn't get it. I thought B-Real sounded like Mickey Mouse. I almost dismissed them because of his high-pitched flow. I'm glad I didn't. This tape really rocks.

This is one of my favourite songs by Cypress Hill "The Phuncky Feel One" and it dates back to 1991.



"Well I'm the Real one, yes the Phuncky Feel One
Cypress Hill has come, any quest/just ask them
Cause we are answering, any brothers that've been
On the dick swinging, and straight gathering
Enter the info, cause yo what you're in for
Is a crazy day, strapped in a pimp mode
Trapped like a prophet, but I still profit
Even when you're off it, bank's in my pocket
Cause of my music, what you call me chumpy?
In my trade, the Tribe is known to get funky
Hif is here to hack you down, Son is here to buck you down
Joke's on you, if you're the biggest duck in town
You got to relax, we got to kick back
Brothers just sit back, enjoy me like a six pack
As I let the rhyme flow, into the hook
Yo where you getting took, but that's another story black

Cause I'm the Real one, yes the Phuncky Feel One
I'm the Real one, yes the Phuncky Feel One
I'm the Real one, yes the Phuncky Feel One
You know I'm the Real one, yes the Phuncky Feel One"

Sen Dog

"Night in a stiff block, hanging up the pimp's jock
Used to call me Pimp Poppa, cause I likes to hip-hop
Cause I'm down with Cypress, illing well I might
Begin to take your girl, your girl she's the flyest
Flyer than the other broad, working off the pitched rod
Isn't that odd, instead of saying my dick's hard
It's not about knocking you, do you feel like clocking loot?
Forget it act stupid little sucker I'll be clocking you."


"With the right or left hand, duck they was still stand
Troopers on the side step, bucks him down to death man
With the greater lyric, if you can spare it
Just an ass kicking, is what you inherit
So don't try to snake off, you know I can't be shook off
Why the suckers took off? Well that's another story black."


B-Real and Sen Dog trade off lines here,

"Standing on the corner, close to the real estate
Clones they really pull sticking brothers try to imitate
Meaning when they simulate, but they can't stimulate
Like a faded joint, stiff from the breath I take
Make me act loco, they switching up my vocal
Out to catch you so-called, MC's with a roll call
Then you gotta close your eyes, you can't stand the sunlight
There is just one light, the Tribe's bucking heads tonight
Buck buck buck ya head! Sorry that red is dead
Deader than a doornail, someone cold made his bed
Didn't just break out, the sucker got cracked out
Hit the pipe and blacked out, with the shit from back down
So much more integrity, just another hooker
Was a funky looker
But that's another story black."
