Artist :Big Daddy Kane
Album :Veteranz Day
Title :

Shame!



There's no myth or fable about the pimpin' at your label
What goes on under the tablewhy you think your deal is so unstable?
Nowwhose the macaroniA&R's acting phony
Once you make the matrimonythen he start to slackin' don't he
Or could it be the president that's being hesitant
Playin' his artist like a corner workin' specimen
And I ain't kidding you when I say it's political
The way they make a ridicule of artists can be pitiful
You know damn well there shouldn't be no company CO
Trying to show me about rap that's 53 or so
But yet and still they want to add advicetrying to keep their status right
When they should be working records for Gladys Knight
Who shape artistsman they catching rape charges
Once you sign on the dotted linethey lead you in the blind
Then you findyour state of revenue remains the same
Cause you getting less points than Steve Kerr be getting in a game
And just because it be too hardcore to judge it
They won't even touch itand get to frontin' on the budget
When new artists come outI can foresee the worst outcome
Cause everybody I know got beat their first album
So I took my contract to a lawyer so he can check it out (He don't know)
Then I took it to Dionne Warwick so she can read my hand (She don't know)

Chorus
It's a shamewhen artists gotta deal with cheats
They got gamefor every young rapper they see out on the streets
You sign your namethey get like Big Red on the Five Heartbeats
Now who the blamewhen you starvin' and your record label eats

Verse 2
Preach brother
They say the truth will set you freebut I see signs of treachery
Go on perpetuallyhere's how they get you G
They use the tricksjust to juice your mix
But cross be in their heart like a vampire stabbed with a crucifix
I had the enemy in my vicinity with the false identity
Of a friend to me to injure me
They ride along just to guide you wrong
Play like they beside you strongand start to faking moves like Olajuwon
Who side you onrevealing all that low down dirty dealing
I can see your skin peeling it changed like a chameleon
First you believe in thembut once you disagree with them
They try to get Magilla repertoire and that ain't even them
And all those who has betrayedbe fast to fade
Cause they cast a shadewith the masquerade
What's dealtis low blows below the belt
Lord have mercyI know how Julius Caesar must have felt
I start to think back when I was just a youth
I should have listened to the words of the God Born Truth
He said"look out for black snakes they all up in your cypher
Black snakes you can't see therefore they sneak up and they bite ya'"
They get to flippin' cause they think you slippin'
So rememberdon't get to slippin' cause they get to flippin'
And trippin'what's that you grippin'beside your hippin'
You think my heart is skippin'go save that game for Scottie Pippen

Chorus
It's a shameto see how far left people be going
They got gameto think that all this time you said you know them
It ain't the sameAahso now you see the way they flowin'
Now who they blameain't nothing but a wolf in sheep's clothing

Verse 3
Nowwait a minuteI'm starting to see lotsahip-hop imposters
Is rap a category at the Oscars?
Too much Nino Brown up in your life
Cause since thenman I done seen Wesley Snipes playin' a drag queen
But yet and still you want to mimic the stars of cinema
Pretending huh? So full of it they need an enema
Cause see digthey all like to talk big
But then they want to renegewhen there's a curling iron in their wig
You talking loud and saying nothingwhat's the world becoming?
The frontin'now pay attention you may learn something
NowI ain't knocking youbut come on let's be logical
You know that it's impossible to stop the unstoppable
I would suggest that theygo back and check my resume
Cause tunes that I made yesterdaycan hang out with the best today
Peace to Easy Mocause he makes the beats to flow
And I grab the microphone and flip it like pizza dough

Chorus
Shame
Now who the blame
I need to be the Mayorso I can change the things around here
I need to be the GovernorI need to be the Governor
