I wouldn't have come to say my name and run the same weak shit
Putting blurs and slurs and words that don't fit in a rhyme
Why waste time on the microphone
I take this more serious than just a poem
Rakim has no love for those “MCs” who spit weak rhymes in the mic. Their words may rhyme, but the flow is non-existent, while Rakim takes his craft much more seriously. This was a time when many MCs were rapping with nursery rhymes.
