Cause I bake the cake, then take the cake
And eat it, too
Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing ta Fuck Wit by Wu-Tang Clan

To “have your cake and eat it, too” is a phrase that typically infers that you have the best of both worlds; you get the best of two situations. The phrase “to take the cake” means to be the winning or decisive person.

Deck puts a play on these two common phrases to show how he not only gets the best in a seemingly — or to other people — impossible manner, but he also is the best.

WU-TANG! WU-TANG! WU-TANG!
