Lyrics:[talking]
Yo, you know what we got to do, man, we need to get a whole CD.
Get a collection
of all the music and everything we've ever done.

[woman singing]
Bringing back sweet
memories (3x)

Life, living in Flatbush and going to house parties
Red lights,
bumping, life is what you make it, then sorry
In my lifetime, ain't done too many things

better than watching your first son put his sentences together
Yo, it kinda make me think of
way back when
I was the portrait of the artist as a young man
All them teenage dreams of
rapping
Writing rhymes on napkins
Was really visualization
Making this shit actually
happen
It's like something come through me
That truly just consume me
Speaking
through the voices of the spirits speaking to me
I think back in the day, I absorbed everything
like a sponge
Took a plunge into my past to share with my son

Bringing back sweet
memories (3x)

Like thoughts out the back of my mind
Going back in some time

Like when you used to cut and had to go to the back of the line
Look back and you find

Tracks that make you relax and recline
Now cats rap about packing a nine
When they lacking
divine
Inspiration
Running out of topics of conversation
Well I drop it in the pocket
because rocking's my occupation
I do it remarkably, spark up a leaf
And possibly you could
follow me
Tap into your chi
Utilize your memory
To help you see clearly, then get
back to me
Actually, nothing's new under the sun
So when life be stressing me
My
remedy is 'bringing back sweet memories'
Like the faces that are woven in the fabric of my
consciousness
>From cities where making 21's a big accomplishment
Like when my people
understood their prominence
And my past life visions of the continent
Like the first time
I saw KRS live, rockin' it
I heard Resurrection by Common Sense
Dominant in my psyche

I chose my direction like Spike Lee
To speak my life through mics, and I never take it
lightly
It might be something you did to bring you down when you were high
But that
karma's a bitch, you steady asking God why
Like when my parents first split up
Yo, I was
illin'
Seems like some years they was together for the sake of the children
And I love
them for that
I don't know if they saw that
So I'ma say it, and convey it when the world
play it (3x)

Bringing back sweet memories (3x)

Like black is beautiful, names
from the seventies
Let me tap into your energy
Fields of dreams become my property

When I reach my destiny like a prophecy
Especially when I 'm 'bringing back sweet
memories'
I got deep into my mind, see I got a treasury
That float through my head like a
sweet melody
What you telling me
Reflection is a collection of memories
Definitely
this is how hiphop was meant to be
Eventually, I knew I'd run into Hi-Teknology
It was
only a matter of time like centuries
Check the recipe or technique to how it sound so
sweet
I freak with word power, my man speak with beats
If I could make it in New York, I
figured anywhere I'd make it
Came to Cincinnati linked with Mood, and we did Sacred
Hi-Tek
beats became my favorite
Hussle on the Side was the cut
We started to put songs together
like 'What!'
Travelled the world, came back to the crib
And hit the motherland
Yeah,
this year we put in work and got some other plans
In fact, that's where I'll take the fam

when the Reflection joint is done
By the time you hear this, I'll be basking in African
sun
Like Wow!
We made it
We here
