I'M BAD (excerpts)
by L.L. Cool J
No rapper can rap quite like I can
I'll take a musclebound man and put his face in the sand...
Cool J has arrived so you better make way
Ask anybody in the crowd they say the kid don't play!
I'm like Tyson icin', I'm a soldier at war,
I'm makin' sure you don't try to battle me no more
Got concrete rhymes been rappin' for ten years and
Even when I'm braggin' I'm bein' sincere.
Never retire or put my mike on the shelf
The baddest rapper in the history of rap itself
Not bitter or mad just provin' I'm bad
You want a hit, give me a hour plus a pen and a pad.
MC's they retreat cause they know I can beat 'em
And eat 'em in a battle and the ref won't cheat 'em
I'm the best takin' out all rookies
So forget Oreos eat Cool J coookies
L.L. I'm bad. Other rappers know
When I enter the center they say, "Yo, yo there he go!"
My paycheck's large, Mr. Bogart in charge
Not a puncher or hunter from a rap cool large
My vulture's exact like rack and pinion in a Jag
You try to brag you get your rhymes from a grab-bag
No good scavenger catfish vulture
My tongue's a chisel in this competition sculpture.
