      About "The Beef Is On"

      Lyrics for Big Daddy Kane - "The Beef Is On"

      It's hell up in Harlem, my main man just caught a bad one
      Wetted by a magnum when he didn't have none
      That goes to show you that even when you're respected
      Brothers'll still try ya if they think you're butt-naked
      So I went uptown to get the low-down
      To see who made the whole thing go down
      Word on the streets had it
      Some kids from the Bronx with automatics
      Came to start static
      Some new jacks at the game
      Tryin' to get a name
      Had a point to prove
      Wrong move
      So I can't wait to get em all straight
      It's a big payback when I retaliate
      Steam, I gotta let it off
      And I can't wait to set it off
      To revenge my main man that's gone
      And as sure as my name is Kane, word is bond
      The beef is on

      (Once again it's on)
      (You got beef)
      (Once again it's on)
      (You got beef you better save it for the muthafuckin meat market)

      It's time to show them how to get hard
      Callin' a hit squad and pull all these clown's ciddard
      For tryin' to friddont and fiddake the middood
      But when I get riddude awesome dude
      So I took a little trip to Brooklyn
      Bedstuy do or die is where I was lookin'
      For my boys from roosevelt, albany and marcy
      Plus I got a posse over in canarsie
      I'm talkin' about ill brothers that don't play
      They sit around watchin 'scarface' all day
      So here we go, headed up to they scene
      Twenty deep in a van like the a-team
      We rolled up to see what this joint's about
      When one of my boys in the van just pointed em out
      So without delay we reacted
      And started shootin' like it was target practice
      When they saw that we wasn't messin' around
      One tried to run, so I had to chase him down
      I caught the kid by the corner store deli
      Kicked him in the belly like I was Jeff Kelley
      I did his jugular vein something violent
      Came back to see my crew made the rest silent
      We sent fifteen bodies to trapper john
      Cos the beef was on

      (Once again it's on)
      (You got beef)
      (Once again it's on)
      (You got beef you better save it for the muthafuckin meat market)

      (I don't happen to trust people
      I sort of figured if you thought I was weak
      You'd mop the street up with me
      And I got to kill a lot more of your people
      To put you in your place)

      (You send your boys in I send em back in a paper bag)

      Many screamed about a homicide
      But when I came to shut em down all the drama died
      I plead insanity when I got a jam with me
      And we roll like the Corleone family
      I bring the boys that'll bring the noise
      In the aftermath everything's destroyed
      Like a crew of barbarians
      And brothers that want beef, I make em vegetarians
      So don't even front and try to put it as if you're ruff
      Cos soon as I see ya, best believe I'ma call your bluff
      And everyone else that tried to press up on me tuff
      Have fallen and they can't get up
      My game is a ill one
      Cos I'm a real one
      Lorda mercy
      Nuff controversy
      A gangster, a khan
      A pimp and a don
      Waitin' for the beef to be on
