Ain't No Half Steppin'
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 cause you're history I'm the authentic poet to get lyrical For you to beat me, it's gonna 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 Cause 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 Cause 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'mma 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, cause Ain't no half-steppin' 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 originator, 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 Cause 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 till I start to snore You can't awake me, or even make me Fear you, son, cause 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 there Ain't no half-steppin' I'm the Big Daddy Kane I appear right here and scare and dare A mere musketeer that would dare to compare Put him in the rear, back there where he can't see clear Get a beer, idea or near stare, yeah So on to be want to be competition Trying to step to me must be on a mission Up on the stage is where I'mma get you at You think I'm losing? Psst, picture that Ain't no half-steppin' I'm the Big Daddy Kane 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 MC's 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'mma 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, cause I'm homicidal That means murder, cause I'm about to hurt a- Nother MC, 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!
