You Be Illin' Lyrics

Artist: Run-D.M.C.
Album: Raising Hell

Verse 1

(One) day when I was chillin' in Kentucky Fried Chicken
Just mindin' my business, eatin' food and finger lickin'
This dude walked in lookin' strange and kind of funny
Went up to the front with a menu and his money
He didn't walk straight, kind of side to side
He asked this old lady, "Yo, yo, this Kentucky Fried?"
The lady said "Yeah", smiled and he smiled back
He gave a quarter and his order, small fries, Big Mac!
You be illin'

Verse 2

(To)day you won a ticket to see Doctor J
Front row seat (in free!) no pay
Radio in hand, snacks by feet
Game's about to start, you kickin' popcorn to the beat
You finally wake up, Doc's gone to town
Round his back, through the hoop, then you scream "Touchdown!"
You be illin'

Verse 3

The other day around the way I seen you illin' at a party
Drunk as skunk you illin' punk and in your left hand was Bacardi
You went up to this fly girl and said "Yo, yo, can I get this dance?"
She smelt your breath and then she left you standin' in your illin'
You be illin'

Verse 4

(For) dinner, you ate it, there is none left
It was salty, with butter and it was def
You proceeded to eat it cos you was in the mood
But holmes you did not read it was a can of dog food!
You be illin'

they taught this song in my sleepover camp!

Rakim is the God of MC's..but you can see where he got his influences. Both Run D.M.C. & dudes like Kool Moe Dee, were beginning to use internal rhymes back in the day. You can really here them here. This was one of the first Run D.M.C. songs I ever heard (first heard this back in '86 I believe). Love the old school..they were more skilled back then, then the "modern" rappers of today!

Old school rap [80's especially] is the best there is. All the rappers today have nothing to rap about, so they've begun to copy songs from the 80's. RUN D.M.C. FOREVER! óż

I'm not trying to stick up for Lakweesha, but I think she was talking about the modern rap we hear today. As in it sucks...
