Artist: Big Daddy Kane Album: Colors (soundtrack version) Song: Raw Typed by: OHHLA.com Verse One: Here I am . . . R-A-W terrorist, here to bring trouble to phoney emcees, I move on and sieze I just conquer, and stomp another rapper with ease Cause I'm at my apex and others are be-low nothing but a milliliter, I'm a kilo Second to none, making emcees run Also don't try to step to me, cause I ain't the one I relieve rappers just like Tylenol and they know it, so I don't see why you all try to front, perpetrating a stunt when you know that I'll smoke you up like a blunt I'm genuine like Gucci, raw like sushi The Sage of Rage is what rap did to me To make me want to create chaos and mayhem cold rock a party, until the A.M. I'll make a muscle, grab the mike and hustle while you stand dazed and amazed, I'll bust a little rhyme with authority, superiority and captivate the whole crowd's majority The rhymes I use definately amuse better than Dynasty or Hill Street Blues I'm sure to score, endure for more without a flaw Cause I get RAW! Verse Two: I give a speech like a reverend, rappers start severin and in my lifetime, believe I've never been beaten or eaten, or just tookin out you know, come to think about, I keep emcees lookin out And real nervous, when I'm at your service Also give me that title boy, you don't deserve this I work like a slave to become a master And when I say a rhyme, you know that it has ta be perfectly fitted, cause I'm committed the entertainer and trainer and Kane'll get with it I go and flow and grow to let you know, I'll damage ya I'm not an amateur but a professional unquestionable, without a doubt superb Also full of action, my name should be a verb My voice will float, on every note when I clear my throat, that's all she wrote The minute that the Kane starts to go on believe it's gonna be smooth sailing so sail on As I put other rappers out of their misery Get em in a battle and make them all history Rulin and schoolin, emcees that I'm duelin watch em all take a fall, as I sit back coolin on a throne, with a bronze microphone Uhm, God bless the child that can hold his own Cause I get raw! Verse Three: chillin, killin like a villain the meaning of RAW is Ready And Willing to do whatever is clever, take a loss never And the rhymes I bust, comin off is a must And I come off hard with rhymes that are odd I rip the microphone and leave it scarred Never smokin or hittin or takin a sniff Only crushin emcees that be tryin to riff I get strong and titanic, do work like a mechanic make emcees panic, they all get frantic And skeptic, like a girl on a contraceptive As I rocked, but hey, what you expected? I'll get raw for ya, just like a warrior rather like a samurai, and I;ll be damn if I ever let a Fisher-Price emcee hang their rhymes are toy, nothing but ying yang So if we battle on the microphone bring your own casket and tombstone And I'ma preach your funeral, tell me who in the world could ever come with more, I get RAW!
