    [singer wails for first 0:59 of song]

    [Big Daddy Kane]
    It's hard enough for a black man tryin to make it today
    Strugglin to find the right way
    So I say, times is hard, word to God
    Recessions, depressions, the whole nine yards
    That itself makes a brother wanna break
    But bein an entertainer puts the icin on the cake
    Cause I can remember when I looked up to Kurtis Blow
    and said that's where I gotta go
    So here I am, paid in the rap trade
    But still gettin played, for my darker shade
    That's not the only P-R-O-B-L-E-M
    Man, that's just the beginnin of them
    For example, I can't walk the streets alone..
    .. without bein known
    Don't get me wrong, cause deep in my heart I do love it
    But I can't even dig up my nose in public, huh
    MC Rell couldn't have said it no plainer
    Yeah, that's the life of an entertainer
    And the times are so hard to understand
    that it makes me a troubled man

    * Mister Cee cuts up Chuck D saying "I got so much trouble on my mind" *

    [Big Daddy Kane]
    I like women, but I hate womankind
    Love can be just too much for the mind
    Cause I've toured the world from state to state
    and wouldn't lay down tonight without havin a mate
    Married girls in tight miniskirts
    that left they husband waitin at the concert
    I don't discriminate with girls that I talk to
    I take em Mello-Yello to Chocolate Yoo-hoo
    But now I couldn't find the right girl to fit me
    Not even if she walked into my face and bit me
    You see it's hard to make a woman your wife
    when you've been humpin married woman the most of your life
    You better believe that's true, word up
    cause if it happened to me, then it can happen to you
    I'm not tryin to say that a woman is scandalous
    I'm just showin you who the troubled man is

    * Mister Cee cuts up Chuck D saying "I got so much trouble on my mind" *

    [Big Daddy Kane]
    Brothers from the past..
    .. in the streets of Bed-Stuy or my ?Sara J? class
    Some of them are cool, some of them at times can be a bother
    Thinkin I got jobs to give like Roy Rogers
    I try to explain I'm not on tour yet
    And they say, "You think you're all that? Yeah, I bet!"
    So when I see em on the solo tip
    I gotta throw joints to prove my point
    Just when I thought that I had the neighborhood support
    here comes another battle to be fought, huh
    You know they even tried to start a AIDS rumor
    Diggin the kind of life, that would maybe doom a
    brother of my priniciple, you'd think some of these people
    would be more sensisble, because a lie like that
    didn't bring my sex flow to an end
    Maaaaaaaan, I'm still gettin skins!
    And the beat goes on until the thrill is gone
    And life is the same old song
    And maybe one day you can understand
    What it's like to be a troubled man

    * Mister Cee cuts up Chuck D saying "I got so much trouble on my mind" *
