All Caps
Madvillain Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

So nasty that it's probably somewhat of a travesty having me
Daily told the people "You can call me Your Majesty!"
Keep your battery charged
You know it won't stick, yo
And it's not his fault you kick slow
Should've let your trick 'ho chick hold your sick glow
Plus nobody couldn't do nothin' once he let the brick go
And you know I know that's a bunch of snow
The beat is so butter
Peep the slow cutter
As he utter the calm flow (your mother)
Don't talk about my moms, yo
Sometimes he rhyme quick, sometimes he rhyme slow
Or vice versa
Whip up a slice of nice verse pie
Hit it on the first try
Villain: the worst guy
Spot hot tracks like spot a pair of fat asses
Shots of the scotch from out of square shot glasses
And he won't stop 'til he got the masses
And show 'em what they know not through flows of hot molasses
Do it like the robot to headspin to boogaloo
Took a few minutes to convince the average bug-a-boo
It's ugly, like look at you
It's a damn shame
Just remember ALL CAPS when you spell the man name

And you know it like a poet, like baby doll
I bet she tried to say she gave me her all, she played ball
All bets off! The Villain got the dice rigged
And they say he accosted the man with the sliced wig
Allegedly, the investigation is still ongoing
In this pesky nation he gots the best con flowin'
The pot doubles, now they really got troubles
Madman never go pop like snot bubbles

The rest of the song continues in a similar vein, with braggadocious lines about Madvillain's prowess as an MC, his ability to spot hot tracks, and his willingness to take on anyone who dares to challenge him. The verses are punctuated with a catchy hook that reminds the listener to "Just remember ALL CAPS when you spell the man name" - a clever play on words that simultaneously emphasizes Madvillain's importance and mocks those who might try to challenge him.


Overall, "All Caps" serves as a powerful example of Madvillain's skills both as a rapper and a wordsmith. The song's clever rhymes and confident delivery make it a standout track in the duo's discography, and a beloved classic in the world of hip-hop.

@SeekerGoldstone

It only JUST occured to me that not only is his name spelled with capital letters... but also, all of his history is fictional. Its "all caps". They made it all up in the lab.
