I'm as deadly as AIDS, when it's time to rock a party

A couple a months ago, I got married. It was a nice ceremony and a decent reception. Because of my affinity for old school rap music, I made sure the D.J. was going to mix in some classic rap music. And Hey D.J. came through pretty decently. He mixed up old school with rock, classic rock, and rat pack music. It was a nice verse. However, one song stood out. "Strickly Business" by EPMD. I'm not much of an EPMD Fan. I like maybe a handful of songs...although the older I get I seem to like them more and more but I digress. "Strickly Business" is truly my favorite EPMD song so when the D.J. played it, needless to say I was geeked. What makes this song stand out is PMD's second verse. This has always been my favorite and after the reception it was even more so. Shortly after the song ended, one of my groomsmen B-Shan rolled up and says to me "I don't think I'll ever be at another wedding reception where I'll hear the line "I'm as deadly as AIDS, when it's time to rock a party". Laughter ensued and this track became cemented among the top and most memorable songs of mine and it ensured that the verse would get its due here on the Top Rap Verses.

These 5 heads are truly deadly when its time to rock a party!




[Parrish Smith]
MC's look me in my face, then their eyes get weak
Pulse rate descends - heart rate increases
Like beam me up Scotty, I control your body
I'm as deadly as AIDS, when it's time to rock a party
And all due respect, when I say mic check
Let a sucker slide once, then I break his neck (then I break his neck)
So when I say jump, you'll reply "How high?"
Because I'm takin no prisoners, so don't play hero and die
You're just a soldier - and I'm a Green Beret
I do not think twice, about the MC's I slay
So if you want to battle, I highly recommend this:
Bring your dog, mom, and dad - because I'm Strictly Business
I'm Strictly Business..
