  • Kano – Old School Lyrics

    Ayo, MJ
    Let me tell these people why I’m old school, man
    I am not a Myspace MC, I’m a pirate MC
    From Flava to DeJa
    From Rinse to Major

    [Hook]
    Rude boy, don’t watch that
    When it comes to the roads, I lock that
    Cause when it come to the flows I got that
    Got cash, you could never try rob that
    So move, the guy don’t know you
    That means you ain’t old skool
    From one pound pizza to note ball
    K to the A I’m old skool

    [Verse 1]

    Look, I’m vocal but a lot of blokes chat a lot of breeze
    But with me it’s emotional, nigga I’m old skool
    Like Opal Fruits, gobstoppers or screw balls
    You new born babies, I’m a vet yep they know the cool
    Spittin’ through they headphones, no vocal booth
    Look I go back like Flava FM, Tel still owes me some paper
    Way before DeJa, (?) tapes with AB and the
    Sound labs, no turntables 12-10’s
    And I was housing G, like closer than close
    Till I found the MIC and the vocals I wrote
    I’m so cool with my old skool shit, Adidas shell toes and my Stan Smiths
    In EH with a PH, 3-3-7
    From cassettes now it’s my CD selling

    [Hook]

    Rude boy, don’t watch that
    When it came to the scene, I locked that
    Cause when it come to the green, I stop that
    Got cash, you can never try rob that
    So move nigga, I don’t know you
    That means you ain’t old skool
    From one pound pizza to note ball
    K to the A, so old skool
    Hahaha niggas ain’t old skool like me

    [Verse 2]

    Niggas know why I’m boss on the beat
    Hardcore, never go soft on the street
    From Boys Love Girls to London Town
    I toured the world but locked London down
    But certain reputations ain’t deserving
    Certain MC’s ain’t put the work in
    But I had a few tunes before YouTube
    And I was a known face before Channel U
    From PP, wrets and EQ
    In my Prada Straps and fucked Evisu’s
    Me and Danger Mouse but I’m no Penfold
    And my intro, do I play? N-O
    Look, look, that’s one of my old skool lyrics
    And I was in Eskimo, reloadin’ it
    But some MC’s there were pissed I gone clear
    And yeah I could win that battle on the stairs

    [Hook]

    Rude boy, don’t watch that
    When it came to the scene, I locked that
    Cause when it come to the green, I stop that
    Got cash, you can never try rob that
    So move nigga, I don’t know you
    That means you ain’t old skool
    From one pound pizza to note ball
    K to the A, I’m old skool
