Can U Keep a Secret

Album: 3 Feet High and Rising (1989)

Songfacts®:

  • This short skit-like song finds each of the De La Soul members whispering embarrassing secrets about each other over a sample of New Birth's Birth Day track "Got To Get A Knutt." De La Soul's Trugoy recalled to Rolling Stone: "That was just another high moment. And a lot of people there. We had 15 or more people at our sessions at all times and we were always thinking, 'Let's utilize voices, let's utilize personalities.'"
