Warning, MC's stand back You better take a chill and observe the skill of the man who can, so understand god damn I got a masterpiece a master plan and a brand new way to attack the wack cut 'em down to size to realize LL's back Don't sleep I'm too sweet to repeat a beat a lyric or rhyme I wouldn't waste your time with weak words, that's for nerds, you never heard a rhyme So you deserve a line rougher than rough enough is enough I'm, gonna slaughter choke ya smoke ya like a sauna You don't really wanna But if you wanna battle on here's a lesson, stop 'fessin I'm a lethal weapon, you better get to steppin off the stage, and outta my face You're too light ? save the bass
[Chorus] Why do you think they call it dope? Why do you why do you think they call it dope?
It seems like people-'ll never understand On the microphone I'm not your average man I cool out sometimes, I save my best rhymes and then the toy boy thinks that he can come and get mine Let your friends gas him up, talk trash and make bets then gets played like those kids who tried to rob Goetz You don't know what I'm sayin? Yo check it Give me any microphone and god dammit I'll wreck it! I'm coldblooded I'm about to mutilate Last year before I left I told you to wait But you couldn't stay loyal started goin astray Thinking Tom, Dick, and Harry can mess with Cool J Is you crazy? I'm booming, got the talent of two men The stamina and skill in battle to kill a few men The heart of a lion, the loyalty of a soldier I wreck your whole mob then tell ya I told ya!
Cause I don't jab around you, I come inside Bob and weave, deceive until you get tongue tied Brawl for all give a lyrical display and next time you know better than to get in my way "Yo whassup wit LL? Will he ever make another 'Rock the Bells'?" Yo brothers is coming up, "I think he's falling off I don't think he's still 'hard as hell'" See, this is the attitude, of ignorant ones cause they don't know, all them MC'sll get done One or two might say, "Yo L'll be back" but the rest they be sucking on sugar smacks Talking that crap about who's better than me You think so? Just let a MC make me mad enough, to really wanna battle I put a L on his ass like he was cattle!
Just cause I make a love song, or say a simple rhyme "Boom, move over L, it's Miller Time" I don't know whether to laugh, get ill or get wild Cause brothers don't realize, I got so many styles like tripling up the words, confusing all the nerds Heard put my sights on mics and ? flipping above the word to the mother, no other MC brother, can mess with Ladies Lover I'm original, I'm bright under color And when I get on the mic, yo I burn rubber Can't stand criticism, give 'em an exorcism Been rocking for years, now I have wisdom The way I'm kicking the lines you can hear my tongue twist and it'll have your neck spinning like you're spineless I'm picking 'em up, throwing 'em down Hyping 'em up and slowing 'em down All of these words with only one tongue Shaking 'em up and then baking 'em up Smash boom bash scraping 'em up Now you thought that was hard, I just begun Cause I'm a roll on the microphone And take control just like Al Capone I'm notorious, you're foolish if you sleep on me Cause I'm too slick to let a rapper get sweet on me Try to make a move for my heavyweight belt You get played like the Wizard of Oz witch, you melt Yo I'm crazy dope, with super hype lines and a lot of hype lines make one dope rhyme
Cause that's what it is
Why do you think they call it dope? Why do you why do you think they call it dope? Why do you think they call it dope?
