Back in '89 I simply slid in the place
Buddy, buddy, buddy all up in your face

from A Tribe Called Quest (Ft. Dove) – Award Tour Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Phife’s rhyming debut was the extended 12" mix of “Buddy” by De La Soul, released in 1989. Q-Tip also featured but as mentioned earlier, he had already appeared on wax with the Jungle Brothers.

The second line is a play on Afrika’s lyric from the song, “Buddy, buddy, buddy all in my face”.

De La with their buddy Phife Dawg.
