De La Soul – Buddy (Remix) ft. De La Soul, Jungle Brothers, Q-Tip, Monie Love & Queen Latifah (1989)

De La Soul – Buddy (Remix) Music Video

“Buddy” is the third single released by De La Soul from their album 3 Feet High and Rising.

The song is often cited as an example of an effective remix; one that includes a change of song lyrics or beat. In this case, both the original song’s lyrics and the musical bed received a make over. With its Taana Gardner sampling bassline, the 7 minute 12″ version was clearly tailor-made for dancefloor and provided a striking contrast to the laid back album version.

The song was also famous for featuring the major members of the Native Tongues posse, including Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah and Monie Love. While Phife Dawg appears in the video itself and is heard in the extended mix, the mix in the video eliminates his entire verse.

Released: 1989
Format:CD single, 12″ single (vinyl)

Genre: Alternative hip hop
Length 4:54
Label: Tommy Boy

  1. You tube doesn't have a clear video of this classic. Is might be the first rap song I've ever heard. Monnie in the Middle & Ladies First are some more

  2. Hello it's the Soul
    Troopin' in wit the Jungle patrol
    And this one's about the KO's, the knockouts out there
    Who's holdin' my buddy
    Hold up (Wait a minute)

    [Verse 2: Pos]
    Now just wait
    We're gonna talk about Buddy on this plate
    But before we let the herd out the gate
    Make sure the all the levels are straight out the jungle
    (The Jungle, the Brothers, the Brothers)

    [Verse 3: Afrika]
    De La Soul, from the soul
    Black medallions, no gold
    Hangin' out wit Pos, hangin' out wit Mase
    Buddy buddy buddy all in my face

    [Verse 4: Mike G]
    For the lap, Jimbrowski must wear a cap
    Just in case the young girl likes to clap
    Ain't for the wind but before I begin
    I'll initiate the buddy with a slap

    [Verse 5: Q-TIP]
    Now for the next
    I'm the Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest
    And when I quest for the buddy I don't fess
    For my jimmy wants nothin' but the best (the best)
    The best (ooh wee!)
    Let's stick out jimmy and see what we can catch
    (Stick em up, stick em up jimmy)
    Nets won't be needed unless
    (Jenny wanna get right to the flesh)

    (Sweet little woman, sweet little woman)

    [Verse 6: Pos]
    I won't lie, I love B-U-D-D-Y (why)
    'Cause I never let it walk on by
    When it comes to me and Jenny I seem
    (Very serious) like a Peek Freen
    Buddy is the act that occurs on the lift
    When Jenny and jimmy start shootin' the gift
    Boy let me get shot I won't even riff

    [Verse 7: Afrika]
    Buddy buddy, don't you know you make me go nutty
    I'm so glad that you're not a fuddy duddy
    Not too skinny and not too chubby
    Soft like Silly Putty
    Miss Crabtree, I hope that you're not mad at me
    'Cause I told you that it was your buddy
    That was making me ever so horny
    Junglelistically horny

    [Verse 8: Dove]
    On the dial my buddy talks to me for a while
    Plug Two is the (Q-Tip: Q to her Tip)
    On the A side or sometimes the flip
    (Never gonna flip this record)
    Buddy is the bud to my daisy tree
    And the Luden to my do-re-mi
    And the pleaser to my man Plug 3
    (Plug 3 gets all the buddy)

    [Verse 9: Mike G]
    Behind my bush, my buddy likes the way that I push
    And like a champ just knock it on out
    Never ever once sellin' out
    (Or let loose the juice)
    My buddy helps me to
    (De La my Soul)
    Keepin' jimmy in total control
    Without Jimmy I'd be on a roll

    (La la la l-la la la la, la la la l-la la la la)

    [Verse 10: Q-TIP]
    Hey girl I heard ya lookin' for some good times
    If you Quest from the Soul, here's what we'll find
    A whole lot of fun, lots of fun together
    Just like kissin' cousins (yeah that's kinda clever)
    Close like bosoms, bosoms stay close
    If you be my buddy, I will boast
    That we're like Ethel Mertz and Lucille MacGillicuddy
    You can be mine and I can be your buddy

    [Verse 11: Dove]
    The best buddy's in evening wear
    Long lovin' lets Tru know (he's in there)
    I feel sorry for those who pay a fare (a fee) word to the D
    I don't beg I just tease my buddy with my right leg
    And when it's ready what's said is buddy is best in bed

    [Verse 12: Afrika]
    Fly buddy told us all to get into a circle
    Said don't worry cause I won't hurt you
    All I really wanna do is freak you (she freaked us)

    [Verse 13: Mike G]
    And I watched and then I checked my Swatch
    To see the time
    The Soul had formed a buddy line
    And that buddy was (mine all mine)

    [Verse 14: Pos]
    Now when Tribe, the Jungle, and De La Soul
    Is at the clubs our ritual unfolds
    Grab our bones and start swingin' our hands
    (Then Jenny start flockin' it everywhere)
    'Cause Jenifa just wants to stay aware
    Yo fellas, should we keep her aware?
    (Mmm Hmm, yeah!)
