My prefix is a big ol' ass,
My infix always comes before;
My suffix straight up lies bruv',
About the answer that I bore,
I told ya who I am already, know what I mean?

Note:

The Accepted answer should both answer the Riley and find all the hidden clues.

Hint

Clues are hidden in both the title and the rhyme, once you find the answer everything will make sense, Good Luck.

Hint 2:

Found after rainfall, in all continent,
Can be found also in sinful intent.

My prefix is a big ol' ass,

Big "S"

My infix always comes before;

Eve

My suffix straight up lies bruv',

Even because the 7 is odd this can't be true.

About the answer that I bore, I told ya who I am already, know what I mean?

Seven

Clues are hidden in both the title and the rhyme, once you find the answer everything will make sense, Good Luck.

The rhyme acrostic spells "SEVEN" and the title refers to it being a lucky number.

Found after rainfall, in all continent, Can be found also in sinful intent.

A rainbow and seven deadly sins.

Also

From OP there are seven words in the title.

Probably not really an answer

... but it amuses me that it fits as much as it does. You are probably not

the statesman and author BENJAMIN DISRAELI

even though

the title ends with "dis Riley" which is not so far from "Disraeli"

and

BENJAMIN is the name of the donkey in George Orwell's Animal Farm and hence a "big ol' ass".

Things I've deciphered:

Right acrostic is seven, there are 7 continents and 7 deadly sins, seven colours in the rainbow (which comes after rain, thanks to @gabbo1092), the only line to have 7 syllables is "My suffix straight up lies, bruv'" The acrostic of the 7th letter in each line (including spaces) is fift. Maybe means fifty or fifth. The fifth letter in the line with 7 syllables (including spaces) is U.

Which leads me to the conclusion that:

The answer is YOU/ME. And I am feeling lucky.

    $\begingroup$ nice answer, the deciphered clues are correct up until the rainfall part, thanks to @gabbo1092 for that, your final answer is wrong though. $\endgroup$ – Shahriar Mahmud Sajid Sep 19 '18 at 15:18

Partial Answer


I believe the title is a reference to:

Dirty Harry starring Clint Eastwood. In this film he says the famous quote "You've got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ although the movie reference has nothing to do with the intended answer but the quote was in fact taken from that dialogue.. $\endgroup$ – Shahriar Mahmud Sajid Sep 17 '18 at 17:31
