Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Lines

I know most of you are not fans of the Rap, but i know some of you can appreciate a well delivered, lyrical line. Its seem like now and days, rap artists arent saying anything clever, that makes you go "Oh shit, you heard what he said!" And if they do say something nice, they seem to always end it on baby words or the same word (Lil Wayne).
So what are some of your favorite lines, not whole verses. Heres a few everytime i hear them, i take notice:

"Talking about I fabricated my past, hes just aggravated i wont ejaculate in his ass!" (Eminem "Marshall Mathers")

"Im a monster, i sleep cold winters, wake up and spit summers...ghetto *****, putting up Will Smith numbers!" (Jay-Z "The Blackout" from DMX's Flesh of my Flesh, Blood of my Blood album)

"Im more of the..trips to Florida, order the 'ordervs, views of the water, straight from a page of your favorite author" (Kanye West "Flashing Lights")

"Im tired of being poor and even worse im black, my stomach hurts so im looking for a purse to snatch" (2pac "Changes")

"Dead in the middle of little italy little did we know,That we riddled some middleman who didnít do diddily" (Big Pun "Twinz")

"Word to motha, im dangerous..crazier than a bag of fucking angel dust! When i bust my gack, mothafuckas take dirts naps..Im all dat and a dime sack...Where the Paper At?!" (Biggie "Gimme the Loot")

"Tune into BET and watchin your video, Pretending to be your friends but the smart ones really no, so..If that's your man warn him 'Cause there's enough bullets in here to hit every NBA patch on em!" (Lloyd Banks "Warrior")

"I like the girls with the boom, I once got busy in a burger king bathroom" The Humpty Dance!

"Talkin' bout that shit you own, new pager and cell phone, benz all chromed, brand new home - talkin' shit like that's gonna get you stuck up, ain't nobody impressed ***** so shut the fuck up" - from Prince Paul, "So What?"

"let me aks you dis - if you got 30 cent in your pocket, and 36 prostitutes, what you got? Proof that hoes come a dime a dozen baby" - Big Daddy Kane as Count Mackula on Prince Paul's A Prince Among Thieves

"You my muh-fucka, Imma hold you like piss" - If it wasn't for you, Handsome Boy Modeling School

There's much more, but those two are fresh from a little prince paul binge over the past few days...

"Yo, what the fuck ya'll bitches talking about, now get the fuck out my house/Before I grab you by your hair and slap dick to your mouth. Bob Digi, yea you know who is he/Girl I'll fuckin's slave trade your ass like Kunta Kinte." - RZA "Domestic Violence"

Hip-hop was all my friends listened to in high school, so to say I know almost every early Wu-Tang album by heart would be a fair statement. To this day, even though I never listen to it anymore, I can still quote it like I wrote it.

"Bitch please you must have a mental disease, assume the position and get back down on your knees". Eminem - Bitch Please II

"I kicks the mad style so step off the frankfurter." A Tribe Called Quest - Check The Rhime

"My body is cold steel for real I was made to kill, that's why they keep me concealed" Nas - I Gave You Power

And one of my personal favorites (actually I love this whole verse, but this specifically:

You know the type loud as a motor bike
But wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight
The only thing that's gonna happen is I'ma get to clappin
He and his boys gon be yappin to the captain
And there I go trapped in the kit kat again
Back through the system with the riff raff again
Fiends on the floor scratchin again

Jay-Z - 99 Problems

I got more rhymes than JD's got Salinger
-Beasties

Sing a song of slaphappy crappiness
He came to blow like it was strapped to his nappy chest
Surely I jest, the best on a wireless mic
Not an eye test, yet I di-gress
-Doom

Mask on face, glock in hand
I was in and out of homes like the Orkin man
-Clipse

got a funny feeling like something was real wrong
Looked at her shoes and her feets was real long
Then it hit me oh please god no
Don't let this ho turn out to be a john doe
-Pharcyde

I sell ice in the winter, I sell fire in hell
I am a hustler baby, I'll sell water to a well
-Jay-Z

Andre 3000 from Outkast "13th Floor"
Take this music dead serious while others entertain
I see they makin they paper so I guess I can't complain... or can I?
I feel they disrespectin the whole thang
Them hooks like sellin dope to black folks
And I choke when the food they serve ain't tastin right
My stomach can't digest it even when I bless it
I'm confessin one mo' lesson from the South we in the house tonight.

I'm not a fan of The Notorious B.I.G. by any stretch of the imagination, but this verse of his is really good:

"I'm hard, Jehova said I'm barred from the pearly gates. Fuck 'em, I didn't wanna go to heaven anyway. But my momma got me on my knees with my hands gripped, talkin' 'bout some praise the Lord shit. Haily Mary? Fuck her; I never knew her, I'd probably screw her, and dump her body in the sewer. Our Father...my pops stuck up dope spots. Big, black, and mean with the fifth by the ???. What you expected from his next of kin? I'm loco bro, but ain't no Mexican. I got nines in the bedroom, glocks in the kitchen, a shotty by the shower if you wanna shoot me while I'm shittin'. The lesson from the Smith and Wesson is depressin'. Niggas keep stressin' the same mothafuckin' question...how many shots does it take, to make my heart stop and my body start to shake? Ron G, stop the tape."

Got a strange way of seein life

Intuition is there even when my vision's impaired, yeah"

"I said fuck it, I know what should be done
Just pull your panties down and I'll fuck the biggest one
And then I get the other pussy put it in the freezer
So I can always have a on-hold skeezer"

"Niggaz don't see I'm a 100% legit
And you know it ain't about all that bullshit
It's about fuckin' this bitch and that bitch
But not the bitch with the 7 day itch, like that ho'
Just throwin' me the pussy
She says she wants to do it like a doggy
She's bad, nobody is badder
But she got more crabs than a seafood platter
Bitch on the gang move, to skizz me
Just to say "I got fucked by Eazy"
So I slapped the ho' like a pimp
I might be a women-beater but I'm not a pussy-eater"

Easy-E "Still Talkin'"

"I bet you never heard of a playa with no game
Told the truth to get what I want but shot it with no shame
Take this music dead serious while others entertain
I see they makin they paper so I guess I can't complain... or can I?
I feel they disrespectin the whole thang
Them hooks like sellin dope to black folks
And I choke when the food they serve ain't tastin right
My stomach can't digest it even when I bless it
I'm confessin one mo' lesson from the South we in the house tonight
Now hootie who wants to oppose? Suppose
We rolls through Headland and Delowe
where me and my niggaz surpassed the flow
And got down for ours like hind catchers
My mind catches flashbacks to the black past
while my close niggaz laugh at
The Southern slang, figure ways and mojo chicken wangs
I grew up on booty shake we did not know no better thang
So go 'head and, diss it, while real hop-hippers listen
Started by Afrikan Bambaata, so you and your potnah
Gather your thoughts" Andre 3000 (13th Floor/Growing Old off ATLiens)

"if they get me, dress my body in linen by Armani" Biggie

"i got lawyers watchin lawyers so I won't go broke" Biggie (both off Diddy's Young Gs from No Way Out)

"Cock back my tongue like a hammer, my head is like
a nickel-plated bammer, spit forty-five caliber grammar
At the speed of wind makes you bleed within
Crack your skull, without penetratin your skin" RZA (Deadly Melody off Wu's Forever Disc 2)

Jay-Z
Politics As Usual off Reasonable Doubt
"You ain't seen money in your life, when it
comes to this cheese y'all like Three Blind Mice"

It's Hot (Some Like It Hot) off Vol 3...Life and Times of S.Carter
"Go against Jigga yo' ass is dense
I'm about a dollar, what the fuck is 50 Cents?"

Watch Me off Vol 3.
"You gotta, pop that styles, rock that watch dial
See that Benz? Cop that now
Drop-that-top-down, they gon' kill us anyway
Them cops uptown hit holmes with forty-one rounds"

U Don't Know from The Blueprint
"We watch for cops hoppin out the back of van
Wear a G on my chest, I don't need Dapper Dan
This ain't a sewn outfit homes, homes is about it"

Guns N Roses from The Blueprint 2
"Letís go
Post Postatono, Hov' hangin with Bono
U2 can live like Salvatore Ferragamo
And U2 can cool out poolside at the Delano
And U2 flow like you was out of your mind yo
Cause who knew dude that loved apple pies from McDonalds
Would soon be the boss of the Big Apple, ya know
And who knew dude that played ball for the NBA
Would make a mistake on the who knew estates, throw it away
Who knew that would be his last shot, who drew up that play
They giveth and they taketh life is cruel that way
But even a broken clock is right at least two times a day
You could have turned Guns into Roses like two times today
Now hereís something you gotta say two times to Jay
I got my shades on waiting for the sun to shine my way
Got my boom box, suntan lotion waiting for action
They say when you play with skills, good luck could happen
Let's go" from verse 1

"The Michael Corleone of the microphone
The Michelangelo of flow I paint pictures with poems" from verse 2

Dirt Off Your Shoulder verse 3 off The Black Album
"Your boy back in the building, Brooklyn we back on the map
Me and my beautiful beeeeeeeitch in the back of that 'Bach
I'm the realest that run it, I just happen to rap
I ain't gotta clap at 'em, niggaz scared of that black
I drop that +Black, Album+ then I back, out it
As the best rapper alive ***** axe about me
From Bricks to Billboards, from grams to Grammys
The O's to opposite, Orphan Annie
You gotta pardon Jay, for sellin out the Garden in a day
I'm like a young Marvin in his hey'
I'm a hustler homey, you a customer crony
Got some, dirt on my shoulder, could you brush it off for me?"

Moment of Clarity verse 3 off The Black Album
"My homey Sig' was on a tear where no tears should fall
Cause he was on the block where no squares get off
See in my inner circle all we do is ball
'Til we all got triangles on our wall
Ain't just rappin for the plat-i-num, y'all record
I recall, cause I really been there before
Four scores and seven years ago prepared the flow
Prepared for war, I should fear no man
You don't hear me though
These words ain't just 'pared to go
In one ear, out the other ear, no! Yo
My balls and my word is alls I have
Whatchu gon' do to me *****, scars or scab?
Whatchu gon' box me homey? I can dodge a jab
Three shots couldn't touch me, thank God for dat
I'm strong enough to carry Biggie Smalls on my back
And the whole BK, ***** holla back"

Show You How off The Blueprint 2
"How you want it, my jeans is 300
This ain't Diesel, *****, these is Evisu
Top is rock, you know the rest
A big bucket of frozen water on my chest"

that's good for now


oh yeah tsohg sorry man didn't see you already posted the 13th Floor...lol same one too

"I'm on a Mission, that niggaz say is Impossible
But when I swing my swords they all choppable
I be the body dropper, the heartbeat stopper
Child educator, plus head amputator
Cause niggaz styles are old like Mark 5 sneakers
Lyrics are weak, like clock radio speakers"

- GZA, Liquid Swords

"Before a blunt, I take out my fronts
Then I start to front, matter of fact, I be on a manhunt
You couldn't catch me in the streets without a ton of reefer
That's like Malcolm X, catchin the Jungle Fever
King poetic, too much flavor, I'm major
Atlanta ain't Brave-r, I'll pull a number like a pager
Cause I'm am ace when I face the bass
40-side is the place that is giving me grace
Now wait, another dose and you might be dead
And I'm a Nike head, I wear chains that excite the feds
And ain't a damn thing gonna change
I'ma performer show the mic warmer was born to gain
Nas, why did you do it?
You know you got the mad fat fluid when you rhyme, it's halftime"

-Nas, Halftime

And especially this gem:

"Solid gold crown be shinin and blindin like some diamonds
I be pioneerin the style in the cloud with silver linings
Double breasted, bullet proof vested, well protected
The heart the rib cage the chest and solar plexus
Castin stones, crackin two-hundred and six bones
And watch yo ass get blown to a sea of fire and brimstone
How dare you approach it with dim pones
The overfiend like noah bean green souls with a soldier mean
The grand exquisite imperial wizard oh is it
The ryzarector come to pay your ass a visit
Local bio-chemical, universal giant, the black general
Lickin shots to davy crockett on the bicentennial
Happen millenium two thousand microchips two shots of penicillin
Goes up your adrenalin son its time for boutin
Its a mileage resemblin niggaz who like followin
Trapped inside your projects like a genie inside the bottle"

-RZA, Wu Gambinos

One of my favorite verses:

See I was -- born in sewage, born to make bomb music
Flow tight like I was born Jewish
Used the streets as a conduit - I kept arms
38 longs inside my mom's Buick
At any given moment Shawn could lose it, be on the news
Iron cuffs - arms through it; or stuffed with embalmin fluid
Shit, I'm goin through it - mom dukes too
Tears streamin down her pretty face, she got her palms to it
My life is gettin too wild
I need to bring some sort kinda calm to it
Bout to lose it; voices screamin "Don't do it!"
It's like '93, '94, bout the year
that Big and Mag dropped; and "Illmatic" rocked
outta every rag drop, and the West had it locked
Everybody doin 'em, I'm still scratchin on the block
like "Damn; I'ma be a failure"
Surrounded by thugs, drugs, and drug - paraphenalia
Cops courts, and their thoughts is to derail us
Three time felons in shorts with jealous thoughts
Tryin figure where your mail is, guesstimate the weight you sellin
So they can send shots straight to your melon; wait!
It gets worse, baby momma water burst
Baby came out stillborn, still I gotta move on
Though my heart still torn, life gone from her womb
Don't worry, if it was meant to be, it'll be -- soon

- Jay-Z, This Can't Be Life

The meltin' pot boil gun shot drama soil
Gamble when I scramble handle hot pots of oil
Man handle brain killin' erect my hidden
Streets may be potent put your 9-6 bid in
Vampire Curse disperse on each verse
Swim in black water, act slaughter through my earth

- U-God, Black Jesus


Yo, box talk sequence, powerhouse kickout
Eyes dusty, wet, butt-naked with my dick out
I'm direct, golden best, golden chest is blessed
Scarce chapter, snatcher batcher went to fresh
It sound farfetched, mountain men that be rich
You get buckshot, dumb be clapped, mummy wrapped and stitched

- U-God, Heaterz

I bomb atomically, Socrates' philosophies
and hypothesis can't define how I be droppin these
mockeries, lyrically perform armed robbery
Flee with the lottery, possibly they spotted me
Battle-scarred shogun, explosion when my pen hits
tremendous, ultra-violet shine blind forensics
I inspect you, through the future see millenium
Killa B's sold fifty gold sixty platinum
Shacklin the masses with drastic rap tactics
Graphic displays melt the steel like blacksmiths
Black Wu jackets queen B's ease the guns in
Rumble with patrolmen, tear gas laced the function
Heads by the score take flight incite a war
Chicks hit the floor, diehard fans demand more
Behold the bold soldier, control the globe slowly
Proceeds to blow swingin swords like Shinobi
Stomp grounds and pound footprints in solid rock
Wu got it locked, performin live on your hottest block

Inspectah Deck on Wu-Tang's Triumph

If I could capture the rage of todays youth and bottle it
Crush the glass from my bare hands and swallow it
Then spit it back in the faces of you racists
And hypocrites who think the same shit but dont say shit
You liberaces, versaces, and you nazis
Watch me, cause you thinkin you got me in this hot seat
You motherfuckers wanna judge me cause youre not me
Youll never stop me, Im top speed as you pop me
I came to save these new generations of babies
From parents who failed to raise em cause theyre lazy
To grow to praise me Im makin em go crazy
Thats how I got this whole nation to embrace me
And you fugazi if you think ima admit wrong
I cripple any hypocritic critic Im sicd on
And this song is for any kid who gets picked on
A sick song to retaliate to, and its called..

Eminem on D12's Fight Music

Since I'm in a position to talk to these kids and they listen
I ain't no politician but I'll kick it with 'em a minute
Cause see they call me a menace; and if the shoe fits I'll wear it
But if it don't, then y'all'll swallow the truth grin and bear it
Now who's these king of these rude ludicrous lucrative lyrics
Who could inherit the title, put the youth in hysterics
Usin his music to steer it, sharin his views and his merits
But there's a huge interference - they're sayin you shouldn't hear it
Maybe it's hatred I spew, maybe it's food for the spirit
Maybe it's beautiful music I made for you to just cherish
But I'm debated disputed hated and viewed in America
as a motherfuckin drug addict - like you didn't experiment?
Now now, that's when you start to stare at who's in the mirror
and see yourself as a kid again, and you get embarrased
And I got nothin to do but make you look stupid as parents
You fuckin do-gooders - too bad you couldn't do good at marriage!
(Ha ha!) And do you have any clue what I had to do to get here I don't
think you do so stay tuned and keep your ears glued to the stereo
Cause here we go - he's {*Jigga joint Jigga-chk-Jigga*}
And I'm the sinister, Mr. Kiss-My-Ass it's just a

Eminem on Jay-Z's Renegade

I remember that issue. That's always been, hands down, my favorite verse.

Took the express on a air force jet
The thoughts in my mind broke me out into sweat
I was thinkin of the message again and again
In particular the name of lu chin chen
Yo, i landed in japan with intent to kill
You could tell i wasn't jokin by the look on my grill
Took a look at the picture of the man that i was after
A 5 foot 10 black-belt karate master
Knew where to find him, knew where he would be
I turned around and showin up mr. chen found me
I looked him in the eye with a stare so cold
I said, "i came to revenge for the rhymes you stole
Now you must die, because that is my mission"
He flipped back, got into a fighting position
The tiger style, the shit was wild
He threw his hands in the air, he started to smile
I said, "you can smile now, but you won't for long
Cause sucker, you'll be sorry that you stole my song"
He said, "choose your style", i broke fool, i said, "what?"
Pulled out the knife, tried to shove it in his gut
It didn't even cut, i flipped, i started buggin
Pulled out the hand gun, i shot a slug in
His chest, he said, "buddah bless" and stood proud
Out shot the bullet, mr. chen just bowed
So i shot him again - yo, i couldn't believe
Mr. chen caught the bullet in this two front teeth
Yo, he kicked me on the floor just like i was a child
I got fed up, i thought of flatbush style
Stood to my feet, threw my hands to the sky
Shaked him then, i faked him, then i caught him in the eye
He started stumblin, yo, i started wildin
He tripped, busted his lip, i started smilin
Knew he was defeated, but i wasn't done yet
So i shot him with the shotie, then i jetted in the jet

You should not be so damn material
And try to milk Ice Cube like cereal
(N.W.A., "I Ain't Tha One")

I don't eat no meat no dairy no sweets
Only ripe vegetables fresh fruit and whole wheat
(Dead Prez, "Be Healthy")

Nothing left he stole the heart beating from my chest
I tried to call the cops but that type of thief they canít arrest
(Fugees, "Manifest")

The New World Order was born on September 11th
(Immortal Technique, "The Cause of Death")

There were just Cain, Abel, Adam and Eve
On the whole planet now use your intellect
And tell me, what did Cain and Abel do for sex?
(KRS One, "The Truth")

Creationists are always trying to use the second law
To disprove evolution but their theory has a flaw
The second law is quite precise about where it applies
Only in closed systems must the entropy count rise
The Earth is not a closed system it is powered by the sun
So fuck the damn creationists. Doomsday, get my gun
(MC Hawking, "Entropy")

And this entire verse...

I put the pistol to my temple, seeing the bullet in the chamber
Cocked it back and out of anger
I pulled it back, seeing the shells jump out the side
Now I'm falling back I'm seeing faces but they're all in black
I'm hearing sounds but I can't hear
I'm seeing pictures in my head but they ain't clear
My every thought is flashing slow speed
And I'm feeling like I'm losing my grips on all reality
But my reality's a battle, G
And I was tired of having to talk to myself about mentality
End it all I shall stand tall
Apparently I wasn't patient enough to hear the man call
So now I leave myself to strive or die
But I've lost all my hopes inside
And I just want to die
(Geto Boys, "I Just Wanna Die")
