"Tough Guy" as written by Alvin Joyner, Tony Louis Cottrell, Trevor Smith and Jonathan Rotem....
Butcher me on the court
Too many elbows to report
Now you're poking me in the eye
Bill Laimbeer motherfucker, it's time for you to die

Tough guy, it's time to check yourself
Dribbling the ball like the Biz can be bad for your health
Tough guy, what you gotta prove?
Moving like an elephant, that's your favorite move
Tough guy, your shit is going out

Box me out with your fat ass
Throw me around like a bounce pass
You've got a tombstone hanging over your dick
You cause a minor earthquake when you throw a moving pick

Tough guy, you think you're like the Shaq
Keep running around, you'll catch a heart attack
Tough guy, what are you giving me?
The way you're playing ball, well, you'll stop me from living, B

Tough guy, tough guy
Tough guy, you're shit is weak
Tough guy, you fucking freak
Tough guy, I'll stick your shit
Tough guy

    My InterpretationAbout a "hack on the court". Someone who is playing basketball opposite Mike D & he is talking mad shit about them. Maybe the same guy Heart Attack Man is about. Ill Communication seems to having a running theme throughout: basketball. I saw them do this song live in '98. Mike D played drums & sang lead. I believe this was also played at the '09 Bonnaroo show. The final Beastie show.
