Brainiac dum-dum, bust the scientifical
This is the opening line from Masta Ace’s “Born To Roll” (a remix of Ace’s earlier song “Jeep Ass Niguh”). It serves as a shout out to a fellow Brooklynite and an introduction to the knowledge that Kweli’s about to kick.
The drums and the “check it out baby, check it out y'all” hook are also callbacks to “Born To Roll”.
