Album :Prince of Darkness
Title :

Troubled Man

[singer wails for first 0:59 of song]

[Big Daddy Kane]
It's hard enough for a black man tryin to make it today
Strugglin to find the right way
So I saytimes is hardword to God
Recessionsdepressionsthe whole nine yards
That itself makes a brother wanna break
But bein an entertainer puts the icin on the cake
Cause I can remember when I looked up to Kurtis Blow
and said that's where I gotta go
So here I ampaid in the rap trade
But still gettin playedfor my darker shade
That's not the only P-R-O-B-L-E-M
Manthat's just the beginnin of them
For exampleI can't walk the streets alone..
.. without bein known
Don't get me wrongcause deep in my heart I do love it
But I can't even dig up my nose in publichuh
MC Rell couldn't have said it no plainer
Yeahthat's the life of an entertainer
And the times are so hard to understand
that it makes me a troubled man

* Mister Cee cuts up Chuck D saying "I got so much trouble on my mind" *

[Big Daddy Kane]
I like womenbut I hate womankind
Love can be just too much for the mind
Cause I've toured the world from state to state
and wouldn't lay down tonight without havin a mate
Married girls in tight miniskirts
that left they husband waitin at the concert
I don't discriminate with girls that I talk to
I take em Mello-Yello to Chocolate Yoo-hoo
But now I couldn't find the right girl to fit me
Not even if she walked into my face and bit me
You see it's hard to make a woman your wife
when you've been humpin married woman the most of your life
You better believe that's trueword up
cause if it happened to methen it can happen to you
I'm not tryin to say that a woman is scandalous
I'm just showin you who the troubled man is

* Mister Cee cuts up Chuck D saying "I got so much trouble on my mind" *

[Big Daddy Kane]
Brothers from the past..
.. in the streets of Bed-Stuy or my ?Sara J? class
Some of them are coolsome of them at times can be a bother
Thinkin I got jobs to give like Roy Rogers
I try to explain I'm not on tour yet
And they say"You think you're all that? YeahI bet!"
So when I see em on the solo tip
I gotta throw joints to prove my point
Just when I thought that I had the neighborhood support
here comes another battle to be foughthuh
You know they even tried to start a AIDS rumor
Diggin the kind of lifethat would maybe doom a
brother of my prinicipleyou'd think some of these people
would be more sensisblebecause a lie like that
didn't bring my sex flow to an end
MaaaaaaaanI'm still gettin skins!
And the beat goes on until the thrill is gone
And life is the same old song
And maybe one day you can understand
What it's like to be a troubled man

* Mister Cee cuts up Chuck D saying "I got so much trouble on my mind" *
