Olde English filled my mind
And I came up with a funky rhyme
Booze (specifically malt liquor) is LL’s muse. Hey, look, I too came up with a funky rhyme
True heads know that LL had previously dissed the other guy in “I’m the Type of Guy” by saying he “drinks Olde English”! This is the kind of flip-flopping that always dogged LL’s street credibility, while of course it also is that, er, flexibility that allowed him to keep songs on the radio and make megabucks.
