Big Daddy Kane — Ain't No Half-Steppin' lyrics





Rappers stepping to me they want to get some

But I'm the kane, so yo, you know the outcome

Another victory

They can't get with me

So pick a bc date cause you're history

I'm the authentic poet to get lyrical

For you to beat me, it's gonna take a miracle

And, stepping to me, yo that's the wrong move

So what you on, hobbs, dope or dog food?

Competition I just devour

Like a pitbull against a chihuahua

Cause when it comes to being dope, hot damn

I got it good, now let me tell you who I am

The b-i-g d-a-double d-y k-a-n-e

Dramatic, asiatic, not like many

I'm different, so don't compare me to another

Cause they can't hang, word to the mother

At least not with the principal in this pedigree

So when I roll on you rappers, you better be

Ready to die because you're petty

You're just a butter knife, I'm a machete

That's made by ginzu, wait until when you

Try to front, so I can chop into

Your body, just because you try to be basing

Friday the 13th, i'mma play jason

No type of joke, gag, game, puzzle or riddle

The name is big daddy, yes big not little

So define it

Here's your walking papers, sign it

And take a walk

As the kane start to talk, cause...





Ain't no half-steppin? I'm the big daddy kane

(3 times)



My rhymes are so dope and

The rappers be hoping

To sound like me, so soon I'll have to open

A school of mcing, for those who want to be in

My field in court

Then again on second thought

To have mc's coming out sounding so similar

It's quite confusing for you to remember

The originator, and boy do I hate a

Perpetrator, but I'm much greater

The best oh yes I guess suggest the rest should fess

Don't mess or test your highness

Unless you just address with best finesse

And bless the paragraph I manifest

Rap prime minister, some say sinister

Non-stopping the groove, until when it's the

Climax, and I max, relax and chill

Have a break from a take of me acting ill

Brain cells are lit, ideas start to hit

Next the formation of words that fit

At the table I sit, making it legit

And when my pen hits the paper, ahh shit!
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/big-daddy-kane-aint-no-half-steppin-lyrics.html ]
I stop and stand strong over mc's

And devour with the power of hercules

Or samson, but I go further the length

Cause you could scalp my cameo and I'll still have strength

And no, that's not a myth, and if you try to riff

Or get with, the man with the given gift of gab

Your vocab, I'll only ignore

Be sleeping on your rhymes till I start to snore

You can't awake me, or even make me

Fear you, son, cause you can't do me none

So, think about it if you're trying to go

When you want to step to me, I think you should know that...





Ain't no half-steppin? I'm the big daddy kane

(3 times)



I appear right here and scare and dare

A mere musketeer that would dare to compare

Put him in the rear, back there where he can't see clear

Get a beer, idea or near stare, yeah

So on to be want to be competition

Trying to step to me--must be on a mission

Up on the stage is where i'mma get you at

You think I'm losing?

Psst, picture that...





Ain't no half-steppin? (3 times)

Mister cee, step to me...



The name is big daddy, you know, as in your father

So when you hear a def rhyme, believe that I'm the author

I grab the mic and make mc's evaporate

The party people say, damn...that rapper's great

The creator conductor of poetry

Et cetera, et cetera, it ain't easy being me

I speak clearly so you can understand

Put words together like letter, man

Now that's dictation, proceeding to my innovation

Not like the other mc's, who are an imitation

Or an animation, a cartoon to me

But when I'm finished, I'm sure that you are soon to see

Reality, my secret technique

Because I always speak with mentality

I put my title in your face, dare you to base

And if you try and come get it, yo i'mma show you who's with it

So if you know like I know, instead of messing around

Play like roy rogers and slooow doown

Just give yourself a break, or someone else will take

Your title, namely me, cause I'm homicidal

That means murder, cause I'm about to hurt a-

Nother mc, that try to get with me

I'll just break him and bake him and rake him

And take him and mold him and make him

Hold up the peace sign...

Assalam walaikum!
