Lyrics

(Oh my God, I think I'm having a rap attack)
-Somebody get a doctor! Quick, man
She's having an attack!
-She said "Rap attack", man, not "Heart attack"
-Oh, you mean she's alright then, right?
-Of course, man
You never heard of a Mr. Magic Rap Attack?
Where is this guy from, man?
-Oh, I heard of a heart attack or a Big Mac attack
But what's a rap attack?
Come here, man
I see I'ma have to explain it to you like this
See, a rap attack means

Deejays jammin' in the street
MC's rappin' to the beat
The people downstairs sayin' they can't sleep
'Cause the people upstairs are stompin' their feet
It's not like they're startin' a riot
"We'll call the cops, 'cause we want some quiet!"
There's no need for them to get excited
They're just mad because they're not invited

It's all in Mr. Magic's Wand

Oh see, now I understand what a rap attack is
Well, it's about time!
All you had to do is explain it to me
But let me ask you a question:
"How long have they been rockin' like this?"

Well, rapping's always been around
Well, it says that it's big time now
Every neighborhood had its own crew
That meant you against me and me against you
They would jam every weekend at the neighborhood center
And charge a small price for the crowds to enter
The parties would be packed inside and out
To see who was best at rockin' the house

It's all in Mr. Magic's Wand

Then Magic went on the radio
And everybody said: "What a way to go!"
The moment he went on the air
It was plain to see a new phase was here
He started out playing mostly rap
Then they all said: "Nobody's into that"
Well, they all turned out to be wrong
'Cause rappin' on the mic had caught on strong
Some still say it's not what's happenin'
After 'Rapper's Delight' went triple platinum
The record world was in for a smash
Sugarhill, Kurtis Blow, to Grandmaster Flash
Blondie, Stevie Wonder, Teena Marie
They even made a rapper out of me
In no time at all, a star was born
And I think he owes it all to his Magic Wand

Now that you heard our rap and you caught a contact
And by now you're all to be blasted
We want you all to know that we got to go
But it was big fun while it lasted
Hey y'all, but we'll be back again, so tell all your friends
Good things don't always come to an end
With somethin' innovative to rock you all well
From Ecstasy and the Rapper Jalil
