Subject: Song Title

I did a search on ask jeeves and it lead me here. I don't know the name of a certain song I'm lookin for. There are some lyrics that go something like this "a place where good roots do not grow on trees" It's a rap song from back in the early 80's. the guy has a english accent. If there's any one out there that knows the song name or artist, you would be a great help.
Thanks, John

Gosh I don't know what song that could be.  I know that back in the 80's there was a British rap group called, Ruthless Rap Assassins who were KINDA popular here in the States.  And I am pretty sure one of the Wu Tang Clan dudes was a Brit, who was a solo artist before he joined the band, but I can't remember which one.  Could it have been maybe a "dancehall" rap tune?
You might want to post this on the 80's board though, in hopes of finding your answer.  :)  Good luck.

thanks. I know at the start of the song theres a airplane that flies by then the songs starts. And for some reason I remember
'Wikki up Rap' but I have no luck on a search under that name.
