Now remember that line you was kicking to me on the way out to L.A. Laurelton Queens
While we was in the car on our way to the shop
Well yo, right now, kick the bass for them brothers and let 'em know
What goes on
Chuck and Flav used to work part-time for Chuck’s father who had a furniture business. The car and shop referred to here are Chuck Sr’s delivery van and storefront. According to PE legend this is where Chuck first kicked this rhyme to Flav.
In his book, Fight the Power: Race, Rap, and Reality (page 73), Chuck D confirms that he told Flavor Flav to “say on the record what he was telling [Chuck] earlier in the truck, and he was telling [Chuck] to Rap the routine [Chuck] was doing in the truck.”
