Into danger zone he should arrange his own
Face it, it's basic, erase or change your tone

from Rakim – Follow The Leader Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a continuation of the EPMD rebuttal but note the similarity to Big Daddy Kane’s lyrics in “Set It Off”:

Save the bass for the pipe and rearrange your tone
Or take a loss and be forced in the danger zone

Rakim took a swipe at Kane just a few lines earlier in response to perceived disses in Kane’s lyrics (including a line from “Set It Off”). Was this another jab at the King Asiatic?
