Lirik lagu: Step Up

watch as the room rocks
mentally moonwalk
mixed media slang banging in your boombox
verbal violence
lyrical stylist
in a time when rock/hip-hop rhymes are childish
you can't tempt me with rhymes that are empty
rappin' to a beat doesn't make you an emcee
with your lack of skill and facility you're killing me
and a DJ in the group just for credibility

i heard that some of you are gettin' help with your rhymes
you're not an emcee if someone else writes your lines
rappin' over rock doesn't make you a pioneer
cuz rock and hip-hop have collaborated for years
but now they're getting randomly mixed and matched up
all after a fast buck
and all the tracks suck
so how does it stack up?
none of its real
you wanna be an emcee?
you gotta study the skill

who can rock a rhyme like this
bring it to you every time like this
step, step up, step, step up

so you pick up a pen and write yourself a new identity
but mentally you don't have the hip-hop energy
with a tendency to make up stories
it sounded like the only hip-hop you've heard is top-40
and your record company's completely missed it
and all the kids are dissin' it for not being legitimate
so in a battle, you can't hack it
react with whack shit, and get smacked with verbal backflips
get your ass kicked, i'm a fabulous battle catalyst
it's taken decades for emcees to establish this
you're new to hip-hop and welcome if you're serious
but not on a mike, leave that to the experienced

(using waves of sound the true master paralyzes his opponent
leaving him vulnerable to attack)

step, step up, step, step up, step up

(after years of painstaking research by the world's leading
sound scientists
we here at the sound institute have invented a reliable
audio weapon system
actual movement of musical sound in space is used to
carefully attack
and neutralize the cellular structure of the human body
so the question must be asked)

step up to the microphone
and you do it like this

and you do it like thiisss.
