Big Daddy Kane - Ain't No Half Steppin'

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Aw, yeah. I'm with this. I'm just going to sit here, laid back to this nice, mellow beat. You know? And drop some smooth lyrics because it's '88. Time to set it straight. Know what I'm saying? And there ain't no half stepping. Word, I'm ready.

Rappers stepping to me. They want to get some, but I'm the Kane, so yo, you know the outcome. Another victory. They can't get with me, so pick a BC date because you're history. I'm the authentic poet to get lyrical. For you to beat me, it's going to take a miracle. And stepping to me, yo, that's the wrong move. So what you on, Hobbs? Dope or dog food? Competition: I just devour like a pit bull against a Chihuahua because when it comes to being dope, hot damn, I got it good. Now let me tell you who I am. The B-I-G D-A double D-Y K-A-N-E. Dramatic, asiatic, not like many. I'm different, so don't compare me to another because they can't hang. Word to the mother. At least not with the principal in this pedigree, so when I roll on you rappers, you better be ready to die because you're petty. You're just a butter knife. I'm a machete that's made by Ginsu. Wait until when you try to front, so I can chop into your body just because you try to be basing. Friday the 13th, I'm going to play Jason. No type of joke, gag, game, puzzle or riddle. The name is Big Daddy. Yes, big not little, so define it. Here's your walking papers. Sign it and take a walk as the Kane start to talk because

Ain't no half-stepping. I'm the Big Daddy Kane.

My rhymes are so dope and the rappers be hoping to sound like me, so soon I'll have to open a school of emceeing for those who want to be in my field in court. Then again, on second thought, to have emcees coming out sounding so similar. It's quite confusing for you to remember the orginator. And boy do I hate a perpetrator, but I'm much greater. The best, oh yes, I guess, suggest the rest should fess. Don't mess or test your highness unless you just address with best finesse and bless the paragraph I manifest. Rap Prime Minister. Some say sinister. Non-stopping the groove until when it's the climax, and I max, relax and chill. Have a break from a take of me acting ill. Brain cells are lit. Ideas start to hit. Next the formation of words that fit at the table I sit, making it legit. And when my pen hits the paper, ahh shit! I stop and stand strong over emcees and devour with the power of Hercules or Samson, but I go further the length because you could scalp my Cameo and I'll still have strength. And no, that's not a myth, and if you try to riff or get with the man with the given gift of gab, your vocab, I'll only ignore. Be sleeping on your rhymes until I start to snore. You can't awake me, or even make me fear you, son, because you can't do me none. So, think about it if you're trying to go. When you want to step to me, I think you should know that ain't no half stepping.

The name is Big Daddy, you know, as in your father. So when you hear a def rhyme, believe that I'm the author. I grab the mic and make emcees evaporate. The party people say "Damn, that rapper's great." The creator, conductor of poetry, et cetera, et cetera. It ain't easy being me. I speak clearly, so you can understand. Put words together like Letter Man. Now that's dictation proceeding to my innovation. Not like the other emcees that are an imitation or an animation. A cartoon to me, but when I'm finished, I'm sure that you are soon to see reality, my secret technique, because I always speak with mentality. I put my title in your face. Dare you to base. And if you try and come get it, yo I'm going to show you who's with it. So if you know like I know, instead of messing around, play like Roy Rogers and slow down. Just give yourself a break or someone else will take your title, namely me, because I'm homicidal. That means murder, because I'm about to hurt another emcee that try to get with me. I'll just break him, and bake him, and rake him, and take him, and mold him, and make him hold up the peace sign. As Salaam Alaikum!
