about

Think back if you can to 2005, when Funky DL released his “Since 77” album. On it was a gift in the form of “Fresh”. A hi-hat-less thumper, which featured “Gods Son”. Well just who is Gods Son? The question may be asked… and the answer is…. Funky DL’s older brother. He’s the guy DL gives the main credit for encouraging him in the early part of his career. The two grew up side-by-side and have always remained close. In fact, the loudest voice you can hear on the outro of “Napalm” is Gods Son cheering DL on whilst on stage beat making. Now the track here in question is as amped as it gets on “NANE”. Titled “Walk of a Champion”, the formula is Similar to “Fresh” with DL on the rhymes and Gods Son on the hook and adlibs but the vibe is completely different. The word “MEGA” best describes this canon blast of a joint. The energy is off the charts and the rhymes twist and turn during the ride. Not the usual style of Funky DL beat, but that’s a good thing. DL has never been limited to just “jazzy hip-hop” and that rightfully allows him to carry the caption “Walk of a Champion”

lyrics

Intro //
Oh my God / International, how you mean? /
Come tru, come tru, come tru, tell them!


Verse One //
(Yo', check it) Let me introduce myself, my name's DEF /
got the walk of a champ and rep rap like there’s one year left /
I’m so deep in the cut but I’m no Jazz Jeff /
with no regard to the rest like I’m so Grand Theft /
but fuck the violence, we don’t get down like this /
studio magic, that’s why the record sound like this /
(yo turn the music up!)
in the booth, burning the roof and pound my fist /
ain’t having just anybody come around my gift / (yo')
yo' turn the music up and let me start a war in your ear drum /
detonate and ricochet your core like the snare drum /
hold the mic psycho like the soldier who don’t fear none / (yo)
Veteran but with the (yo) kind of hunger found in year one / (yo)
and I don’t dare run, I ain’t afraid of suffering /
it could be that you tough or a bluff and I be that tougher man /
(what the fuck?)
so guard your space somebody might muscle in /
push you in a hole, duck tape and now you muffling /
yo' tie you to a pole and let the world know it's over /
then back into the lab with a casual composure /
I told ya' I’m here for exposure / (what?)
so if you wanna' diss', (check it) I understand you (yo) need closure /
(yeah) I ain't no chaser so forget the Coca-Cola /
I spark with the flame like my energy was solar / (yeah)
and in the studio I be that match point composer / (yeah)
you bound to get check like it’s Navratilova / (yo)
yo' I’m hard, (yeah) street, ghetto, (yeah) rugged /
no I ain't cold blooded but I’ll leave your zone flooded /
I’m Def, one of the best to ever leave a stamp /
and I came in the game with a walk of a champ


Chorus //
Me all a' walk like a champion, talk like a champion /
and I came in the game with the walk of a champ /
me all a' walk like a champion, ram-pa-pa-pam-pam /
and I came in the game with the walk of a champ /
Me all a' walk like a champion, talk like a champion /
and I came in the game (echo) /
me all a' walk like a champion, talk like a champion /
and I came in the game with the walk of a champ /


Verse Two //
(yo') yo' on your mark get set, now watch your set get marked /
state of the art, it's nothing kid I take em’ apart /
with the rhymes that’ll glow in the dark, I flow in the dark /
survival, so when I’m left alone with a Shark /
I shed no blood, I’m taking that beast to Noah’s Ark / (yo')
I’m a champ and I’m so off the hook like question marks / (yeah)
and I’m the type of dude to take it back to the start /
where your mark got set and your set got marked /
yo' I am the Sergeant, the General, potent just like a chemical /
music is so hysterical, make it sound like a miracle /
cut you from the umbilical, I’m starting your life /
and there ain't nothing that can make DL depart from the mic /
I’m like a Sniper, the Hackney Pied Piper /
so turn my mic up, lighters up, I bite like white vipers /
lock it down like Rikers /
I am one of the nicest to ever put down with these electronic devices /
(yo' check it) so Compadre’, you better hit the highway / (yes)
the ink and my paper is my ebony and ivory / (yes)
player, I come first, I’m premier, I’m primary /
all the words in the library ain't enough to describe me / (listen!)
one of a kind, couldn’t clone this style /
these other rappers straight flop like a boneless spine /
and player I can sympathise just like a homeless child /
so when I put my record out, they just postpone they smile /
cos' I’m hard, (yeah) street (yeah) , ghetto, rugged /
no I ain't cold blooded but I’ll leave your zone flooded /
I’m Def (yes), one of the best to ever leave a stamp /
and I came in the game with a walk of a champ
