Outside the Lines With Rap Genius – Big Daddy Kane Excerpt #5 - Erick Sermon Dis Lyrics
SameOldShawn: On the "Show and Prove" song, there are a couple lines that kind of sound maybe like they're aimed at Erick Sermon. Did you guys have any kind of disagreement or back-and-forth during that era?
BDK: Honestly, yeah. We talked afterwards. But by the time we talked, it was too late. The song was already pressed. But, yeah
SOS: What was behind that?
BDK: It was something that he said on a song. Someone else came back to me and was like, "Yo, I asked him, and he said, yeah, he was talking about you." And I was like, let's get the party started then
BDK: So I took a cheap shot. When I went to go approach him about it, he told me, nah, that's not what he meant. You know, you're probably the first person to ever ask me that, too
