Mama Said Knock You Out
LL Cool J Lyrics


Don't call it a comeback
I've been here for years
I'm rocking my peers
Puttin' suckers in fear
Makin' the tears rain down like a monsoon
Listen to the bass go boom
Explosions, overpowerin'
Over the competition I'm towerin'
Wrecking shop when I write these lyrics
That'll make you call the cops
Don't you dare stare, you better move
Don't ever compare
Me to the rest that'll all get sliced and diced
Competition's payin' the price

I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out

Don't you call this a regular jam
I'm gonna rock this land
I'm gonna take this itty-bitty world by storm
And I'm just gettin' warm
Just like Muhammed Ali
They called him Cassius
Watch me bash this beat like a skull
That you know I've beef with
Why do you riff with me
The maniac psycho
And when I pull out my jammy get ready
Cause I might go Blaw!
How you like me now?
The ripper will not allow
You to get with Mr. Swift or Rift,
Listen to my gears shift
I'm blasting, I'm blasting
Kinda like shaft, so you can say I'm shafting
Oh, English filled my mind, and I came up with a funky rhyme

I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out

Shadow boxing when I heard you on the radio, UH
I just don't know
What made you forget that I was raw
But now I gotta new tour
I'm going insane
Startin' the hurricane
Releasin' pain
Lettin' you know
You can't gain or maintain
Unless you say my name
Rippin'
Killin'
Diggin' and drillin' a hole
Pass the Old Gold

I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out

Shotgun blasts are heard
When I rip and kill at will
The man of the hour, tower of power
I'll devour
I'm gonna tie you up and let you understand
That I'm not your average man
When I gotta jammy in my hand
Damn!
Oh!
Listen to the way I slay
Your crew
Damage
Damage
Destruction, terror, and mayhem
Pass me a sissy so sucker I'll slay him
Farmers (what)
Farmers (what)
I'm ready (we're ready)
I think I'm gonna bomb a town
Get down
Don't you never, ever
Pull my lever
Cause I explode
And my nine is easy to load
I gotta thank God
'Cause he gave me the strength to rock Hard

I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out
I'm gonna knock you out
Mama said knock you out

Like all 90s rap. Even early, early 00’s at latest, all were legendary artists. They didn’t need to cuss and talk stupid to make it to the top of the music charts. Back then, is when amazing, discernible and legendary rap, sadly, “died” in a sense. Well no let me rephrase that because it’s very much still alive & kickin to this day; it was more less “discontinued.” I have yet to find anybody, today that has that old school slowed & hard hittin beat, like old thee6, project pat or just any “gangsta rap,” that I still love to jam out on repeat, to this day! I will say I do love The $uicide Boy$ though. Their beats are badass and have all those old school 90’s rap vibes.
Todays music is focused on all the same shit- bragging about how thick their stacks and bitches are, how they’re better than everyone and how the world revolves around them, nobody else. Oh & can’t forget, how “were all just sOoO envious of them, with a side of jealously, anger & madness that we aren’t them!”😆I’ll take one example from the rainbow nark clown’s lyrics, had to google it bc idk all of it but this dumb shit right here is worse than I though, after looking🤦🏼‍♀️🤣

“I tell a nigga don't dick ride, don't blick ride
Leave it to the double thick thighs, twin sisters
Drop it down and wobble, wobble up, mami booted up
She get down and gobble, gobble up 'cause my money up
Slide, slide in the Bentley truck-a, the Wraith truck-a
Your bestie is a dick sucker, I big dub her
As-salam-alam alaykum, you big hater
You nothin' but a hater, hater, clout chaser

[Verse 2]
You're mad I'm back, big mad
He's mad, she's mad, big sad
Haha, don't care, stay mad
Ah-hah, ah-hah, ah-hah
Haha, bitch, I'm laughin' 'cause you big mad
See it in your face, cry baby, bitch, you big sad
Niggas tweetin' bout me, got me trendin', bitch, you big sad
Tell me how I ratted, came home to a big bag

“Jah, ayy, you know that boy”

-THE dumbest, most whack ass shit I’ve ever heard in my entire 31 years Of living. Not to mention the fact that he couldn’t help but to brag about he went & rolled on everybody, threw them under the bus and came back with more money. All of which, was only gained, from the attention he’d gotten in the meantime, 99% hate and 1% love from his family, maybe they couldn’t stand him either who knows, we’ll just say his momma. 😂
What happened to being in the rap game for the right reasons?! Having morals and living by a code?! It’s no longer a “thing” these days. Guess that went outta commission too, with all the good rap. 🤷🏼‍♀️😒

Don't call it a comeback, I been here for years
I'm rockin' my peers, puttin' suckers in fear
Makin' the tears rain down like a monsoon
Listen to the bass go boom
Explosions, overpowerin'
Over the competition, I'm towerin'
Wrecking shop, when I drop
These lyrics that'll make you call the cops
Don't you dare stare
You better move, don't ever compare
Me to the rest that'll all get sliced and diced
Competition's payin' the price
I'm gonna knock you out (Huuh)

I'm gonna take this itty-bitty world by storm
And I'm just getting warm
Just like Muhammad Ali, they called him Cassius
Watch me bash this beat like a skull
Don'tcha know I had beef wit'
Why do you riff with me, a maniac psycho
And when I pull out my jammy, get ready 'cause it might go
Blauh! How ya like me now?
The ripper will not allow
You to get wit' Mr. Smith don't riff
Listen to my gear shift
I'm blastin', outlastin'
Kinda like shaft, so you could say I'm shaftin'
Olde English filled my mind
And I came up with a funky rhyme
I'm gonna knock you out (Huuh)
Mama said knock you out (Huuh)
I'm gonna knock you out (Huuh)
Mama said knock you out (Huuh)

“Don’t call it a comeback, I’ve been here for years”
-sums up LL’s career, man’s a legend, always will be

Jeff Carroll

That would imply that no cared about his career because there was nothing interesting about it.
