The word ‘flipped Mic’s’ has a double meaning 1) the way Big flipped words on the mic. and 2) the way Big flipped MIKE’s on the song victory when he flipped the names of “MIKE — anyone Tyson, Jordan, Jackson”. So to brag how I run things I flipped the slang “I’m the DON” and flipped the names Don Corleone, Don Cornelius, Donald Trump and Don King. the same way Big flipped Mike Tyson, Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson..

This isn’t referring to all skateboarders obviously.. I’ve done songs for Tony Hawk and also have Hopsin who is a legit skateboarder on my album. This line is referring to fake-ass feminine-style skateboarders who skate as part of trendy fashion statement and act like bitches while doing it. A few major pop artists come to mind.

This was a reference to the opening line of my verse in “Chains” Where I say “I’m a dip-dip-diver, Socializer”. which came from old school Hiphop slang from groups like Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five when they rhymed “Dip Dip Dive, So So Socialize, Clean Out Your Ears and Open Your Eyes”

I wrote this entire album in composition notebooks. If you see me in the street or out in public there is a good chance you will see me carrying a notebook around with me incase I have ideas or thoughts.

before the digital era of pro-tools and before DAT machines we recorded everything on big reel to reel tapes. Digital recording today is easier in a lot of ways but I miss the warm real music sound of analog tape. It just sounded better to me.

1520 Sedgwick avenue in the Bronx is recognized by many as the birthplace of HipHop where DJ Kool Herc started throwing parties in a recreational room back in the early 70’s. Since this song is the introduction to my album Legends Never Die, this line is saying lets get my album started the same way Herc started HipHop.

This has a double meaning, I’m using the old school slang “DEF” to describe myself but I’m also referring to Doug E Fresh’s initials which are D.E.F., Doug E Fresh even made a song explaining that the initials in his name spelt DEF.
