about

‘Yada Yada’ was inspired after watching a few interviews from some up and coming artists who were proclaiming to be legends. I heard more and more songs from rappers saying the most outlandish claims like “greatest rapper alive” and all types of craziness. In my eyes, none of these guys have yet to compare to the likes of Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Rakim, and other truly legendary emcees. This song is just basically dismissing all of the foolish talk and encouraging listeners to judge artists by their integrity and not by their label promo. For years, I held back on songs because people said I was too “rappity rap”, too aggressive, or focused too much on punchlines in songs. This is my middle finger to them and their criticism. I make my kind of hip hop and never again will I try to fit into any movement or type of sound. Marco Polo sent me this beat more than 3 or 4 years ago but I just never did anything with it. “Yada Yada” was the first song that I actually let anyone hear when I decided to release music again. The responses were all positive and everybody praising it. The response to the video was incredible and it inspired me to finish the EP and move full speed ahead with it.

lyrics

Verse one:
It’s the return of your recurring nightmare
southern messiah who only rock the flyest Nike Airs industry black sheep trying to fight being typecast screaming NC ‘til they put me in that white casket
it’s the day of reckoning, I’m the wrecking ball when the record spins
since the ?uest recommend, I’ve counted consecutive wins been in so many cities you would think I teleport
keep fans eyes bulging out like Tracee Ellis Ross
read between the lines, I define unsung
continue to son dumb n*ggas ‘til the funds come
and anybody trying to stop the agenda
will see I got a hotter temper than a mafia member
I rapped alongside Crooked I, Phonte, Elzhi
they look at I, reply “he’s no Kanye sales-wise”
keep it one hundred when others respond and tell lies
I’m humble, keep my head screwed on and held high
I never let the fame command me, I’ve seen it turn righteous n*ggas into Amos and Andy, jigaboos
hip hop’s my humble abode, I treat it like royalty
but these youngs boys, they be pissing all on the toilet seats disrespecting legends, someone call the board of ethics these dudes 1⁄4 skill and three quarters reckless
yelling ‘bout the legendary, legend what!
you don’t even measure up to the Kanes and the Lord Finesses
Now everybody screaming they the king, yada yada
they making outlandish claims and nobody’s bothered
tell them fools stay in their lane, they out of order
don’t make me grab one of these young lames by the collar Before you ever spend money on anybody’s product
find out if they’re about integrity or ‘bout a dollar
somebody gotta tell it like it is so Mr. Moye
came back to kill the villains and fill in the missing void sorry to disappoint those who didn’t miss the voice continue ignoring me like normally there is a choice
let the rest rejoice.... (crowd cheers)
never test your boy, I keep liquid swords in my reservoir metaphors, similes, double entendres
the bars stay consistent as the Baltimore crime rate slaughtering beats when I record report ‘em deceased
f*ck a critic, skins thicker than a Nautica fleece
got your girl on all fours, how about some hardcore
like a horny Nautica Thorn in a porno release
got her performing for me while you wasting time in the studio
pretending to be some kind of king in a Coogi robe
I undress beautiful ladies without the loot to show
quicker than a 60’s hippie can have a doobie rolled
ask me to do a show, you better have the show deposit
or point promoters to the exit with the door revolving
now you can say it’s good promotion for me, yada yada and this gone put me in the ranks with the hottest artists but before I am a rapper, I’m somebody’s father
and you always get what you paid for.... nada nada...
yada yada.... the yada yada...
It’s still Supastition, n*gga!
