Nuff Respect

This song is by Big Daddy Kane.

Enter the dragon, as I start, to braggin' and taggin'
And sayin' I'm baggin' all rappers on the bandwagon
Feel the fury of a renegade, well men I slayed
So send the aid, 'cause I penetrate
Bein' the best up, with lyrics I dress up, so don't even mess up
Or try to press up, it's better to fess up

'Cause if a rapper ever goes too far man
I start to screamin on MC's like Tarzan
So witness the glare when I appear
None'll compare, so take a seat in the rear
Child, you gotta understand, you just the man
Sittin' next to the man, sittin' next to the man, sittin' next to the man
And no one friar comes higher than the messiah

Sparkin' the mic like a live wire till I retire
Whatever the comp is I burn 'em like fire
With all the blow, I hit 'em hard like PI-YAH
So take your hand and fold cause this is total control
And no one grabs a hold, huh
You got somethin' to say, before it's told
If you speakin' on me, you better hablo espanol

'Cause I ain't tryin' to have none of the penty-ante
Mumble jumble kick yak, you better get back
Clear the way when you see me comin' through
Back up and bow, nuff respect due
Uh, I come down and put my weight on it
Drop somethin' straight on it, and sound great on it

Parties erupt, and stages corrupt
I pour like a quart in a cup, word up
I G-E-T the J-O-b done
Makin' the young boys say, "Daddy I don't want none"
You puttin' the man to a boy, before I can even destroy
I played him like a toy Heavens to Merkatroid!
Check my Modus Operandi

Those who know my name know I ain't about games
I go beyond knockin' 'em out the box
You want to be a comedian? Aight, where's Redd Foxx?
So if I want you, believe I'm gonna get you
I wouldn't give a damn if Tony Terry was witchu
So when I come in the same place as my enemy

They all start runnin' like their name was Sheer Energy
I won't say what you are but I'll hit you
You're found on a woman and a penis goes in you
Another clue, your first letters are P-you
Act like you know boy, nuff respect due
UHH, put in rotation, better than creation, with acceleration
My vocabulary is very

Clever like a trick hand, sinki'n 'em like quicksand
Makin' the competition feel like they need a kickstand
To support what they thought would've brought them
Some type of victory, but none of them could get with me
You better never act new
Huh, nuff respect due
