I'm bad to the bone with a style like Al Capone 
 I'ma smile while I give you the dial tone 
 Eatin shrimp and girls I be pimpin 
 Walk like I'm limpin this brother ain't simpin 
 Not to mention I'm winner of Mack Daddy conventions 
 I get a lot of attention 
 Sleepin in sheets that's made of satin 
 with one of my money makin honies she's mixed Spanish and Latin 
 She's a fly type of swinger 
 Twenty carats on her fingers, minks on every coat hanger 
 In a highrise, made for only fly guys 
 With a size that attracts the ladies eyes 
 Keepin the stash and the cash flow 
 Profile's kept low, more dough than Barry Manilow 
 Fly cars, I got diamonds in jelly jars 
 To earn respect, collectin bar fight scars 
 Slick talkin with a chick when I'm walkin 
 Midnight stalkin, all the suckers be hawkin 
 And I max while you be waxin your Cadillacs 
 Smooth as a fax, but I can cut you like an axe 
 Big spender, cause I'm a winner like Bruce Jenner 
 I burn all beginners and let em simmer like a TV dinner 
 On the phone cause I'm hard like stone 
 Holdin my own, cause I'm bad to the bone 
 I'm gettin cash and, ladies receive my passion 
 Parties I'm crashin with a flashy type of action 
 On stage, I kick outrageous 
 And I enslave the bravest, more diamonds than Sammy Davis 
 I'm more dramatic than _Dallas_ is 
 More pretty than a palace is, hands no callouses 
 Give me a clever girl and I'll outfox her 
 The man that rocks her in pure silk boxers 
 So what you want honey a chump or a champ? 
 Visa or food stamps, Latins or lamps? 
 I run the game like Sega 
 Go to war like Noreaga, hit like Schawrzaneggar 
 Excitin when I'm fightin I'm frightenin 
 Stick chicks slick in quick like greased lightning 
 Ladies I'll love you all tomorrow like Annie 
 And I bet you'll all leave with wet panties 
 Cause I can make a eighty yard dash come back fast 
 Wrap rappers all up in the back, like a jackass 
 Police want to harass me 
 Cause I got all the material that has me lookin jazzy 
 The MC patroller 
 Pockets so fat, I flat em down with a dough roller 
 Dead zone when I strike the microphone 
 G. Rap's known, cause I'm bad to the bone 
 I never needed a helpin handin 
 I'm outstandin, type of guy, girls never abandon 
 And when I'm rollin with force, three across your belly 
 Knockin suckers out the box like I'm playin skelly 
 Cause I pull out the .45 if you offend me 
 And leave the barrel of it smokin like a chimney 
 Rhymes are dynamic, voice is titanic 
 Gigantic, suckers get frantic and then panic 
 A smooth talker, cause I'm a Queens New Yorker 
 My rhymes bring more Good Times than Jimmie Walker 
 A bumrusher, cause I'm a crusher of hardrocks 
 When I turn thirty, I'll still be dirty as Redd Foxx 
 Try to cope, what I wrote, get a sore throat 
 My lyrical notes float like sailboats 
 I keep it steady for the petty sucker rappers I'll be ready 
 I got more bodies than Frank Netti 
 Battles I win em cause I send em to hell when I begin em 
 Because I put it in em like a venom 
 Discover the toughest rap brother you ever seen 
 Not a fairy, but milky like the Dairy Queen 
 Movin around like a smooth choreographer 
 Posin my hoes in all clothes for the photographer 
 On video, show I makin your girlfriend moan 
 Cause I'm bad to the bone

Kool G Rap

Nathaniel Thomas Wilson (born July 20, 1968), better known by his stage names Kool G Rap (or simply G Rap, and originally Kool Genius of Rap) is an American rapper. He hails from the Corona neighborhood of Queens, New York City. He began his career in the mid-1980s as one half of the group Kool G Rap & DJ Polo and as a member of the Juice Crew. He is often cited as one of the most influential and skilled MCs of all time as he is a pioneer of mafioso rap/street/hardcore content and multisyllabic rhyming. On his album The Giancana Story, he stated that the "G" in his name stands for "Giancana" (after the mobster Sam Giancana), but on other occasions he's stated that it stands for "Genius". more »
