​I Pioneered This

This song is by MC Shan and appears on the album Born To Be Wild (1988).

The way I shine, I got splendor
I'm the real thing and not a pretender
You get the nerve to pop the fatal question
I'm takin' the time to make a small suggestion
Write a will for your family's conveniency
Rappers I serve without mercy or leniency
No frame of mind, no heart, I'm relentless
Step to me, I'm knockin' you senseless
I planted my seeds, so don't try to uproot me
You do better tryin' to straight up shoot me
I'm not just a writer, I'm a real idealist
It won't be long until you try to steal this
Make your head swell till your eyes start to dilate
Yeah sucker, you better not violate
Not one MC in the world I'm afraid of
Have you screamin my name like your girl when I slayed her
This is the long 'cause I can't take a short take
Softer than cream between pieces of shortcake
There's no chance of you havin' a mistrial
The very next time that I get dissed I'll
Sit back and write a rhyme stronger than Hercules
Funky parts, I got back and I circle these
Put 'em together, fix the conjunction
Then I'mma bust rhymes till my brain malfunctions
Dare to degrade my name, that's perjury
War's declared, so prepare to have surgery
Cut you with a rhyme of such a high fidelity
Give a kick like a Roland and you'se as soft as a melody
Since you're chalk my rhymes will erase ya
Want a piece of that ass so bad I could taste ya
Faced rappers from wack, ill, to even notorious
You may be clever, you'll be never victorious
I feel free now that I cleared this
How could I fell off, boy, I helped pioneer this

Violators, I go vic em
When I hear... it's like "sic em!"
I transform just like a Decepticon
And once I step to you, boy, you're 'bout to be stepped upon
Say rhyme after rhyme back to back, so consecutive
Appointed rap's chairman, the highest executive
No time to grieve, you won't believe I slapped ya
Change the timeframe and still barely capture
Ask 'em who's their dad and if they're not sayin' me
If he wasn't deceased, then he gotta be payin' me
I'm super superb, Mister Fanstastic
No relation to drugs, but this is dope on plastic
Don't try to play heroic and be Mr. Braveman
My rhymes become a whip and beat you down like a slavehand
If this is what you deserve I serve you with justice
Be as sharp as a pin and still can't bust this
Just name one time that Shan get jetted on
If you did get light, boy, now who you think shedded on?
My rhymes to your mind is like a breath to freshen up
This is not a threat, feel free about steppin up
Once I'm on I'll think about gettin' off
Play me close or out of post and I bet that I be lettin off
Rap is a game that you shouldn't indulge in
My rhymes are so good they keep my pockets bulgin
To delight I sit back and write a rhyme like this one
Relax, grab the buddah and proceed to twist one
By then you might as well tell your boys nice knowin' ya
The next time they see ya, I'll probably be hoein ya
'Cause I write rhymes in more than just two scoops
And Puma's the brand cause the Klan makes Troops
There's no competition cause there ain't no comp
Fuck around with this and get a mudhole stomp
I feel free now that I cleared this
How could I fell off, boy, I helped pioneer this

This throne is mine, I'll never sell or forfeit
So all you no-name rappers better get up off it
Although I been chill in, man, the villain that's still in me
But sayin' I fell off is worse than killin' me
Marley sets the time for the rhyme to be ready by
One-two-three (yo man, put him to beddy-bye)
You cease to exist, I be your pitfall
You think that this is harsh? That ain't shit, y'all
Placed in the ground in wood as encasement
Those that bluffed got stuffed in the basement
Most of the time myself I kept to and
Obtain the rep that you're scared to step to
Don't assume I leave, no room to evade
Gettin' out, that I doubt, so prepare to be slaved
You're neither here nor there, I'm number uno, priority
Rhymes are so smooth, groove shows my authority
Shanté, me, Bizzy and Kane are her protégés
Takin' out Rush you know why? We know the way
We're down with the Juice, don't you think that's virtue
Dare to make fun of us and one of us'll hurt you
Whoever's the closest, I mean that the nearest will
Remove so many rappers you be callin us Clearasil
I feel free now that I cleared this
How could I fell off, boy, I helped pioneer this
