A characteristically clever and humble song by Del and A-Plus of Hieroglyphics, “Stay On Your Toes” calls out today’s rap community for being unoriginal, greedy, haters, or a combination of the three. Del admits that he may not be the richest or most popular rapper, but above all values his originality and willingness to be himself. A-Plus laments the pervasiveness of haters who claim that rap isn’t hard enough, or it’s too mainstream, or it isn’t how it used to be. He urges them to shut their mouths and just appreciate that hip-hop is what it is.
