Best Lyrics from Jay-Z

  • If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems and a b**** ain't one (99 Problems).
  • I wanna rhyme like Common Sense (But I did five Mil), I ain't been rhyming like Common since (Moment of Clarity).
  • Your Grandpop died a n**** failure, then he died of liver failure. Deep down he was a good man. G** d*** I can't deliver failure (Glory)!
  • 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 hay (Dirt off your shoulders).
  • I'm so far ahead of my time I'm 'bout to start another life. Look behind you; I'm 'bout to pass you twice (2002 Funk Flex Freestyle).
  • Life is but a dream to me. Gunshots sing to me. These other guys with lullabies don't mean a thing to me (Beach Chair).
  • Never read the Qu'ran or Islamic scriptures/ Only Psalms I read was on the arms of my n****** ('Intro' From 'The Dynasty: Roc La Familia').
  • If you tell me our schools gon' be perfect when Jena Six don't exist. Tell him that's when I'll stop sayin' b**** (Say Hello).
  • They say it's celestial. It's all in the stars. Like Tony La Russa on how you play your Cards (American Dreamin').
  • It gets tedious so I keep one eye open like CBS/ You see me stressed right (Can I live)?
  • H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A . Fo' sheezy my neezy keep my arms so freezy. Can't leave rap alone the game needs me. Haters want me clapped and chromed, it ain't easy (Izzo).
  • I'm the type to sling heavy weight on the block In every state like Pac. Word Jigga's the hurt holla (Best of Me Remix).
  • Fear not when, fear not why. Fear not much while were alive. Life is for living not living up tight. See ya somewhere up in the sky (Forever Young).

5. As fate would have it J status appears at an all time high, perfect time to say goodbye when i come back like Jordan wearing the 45, it aint to play games with you, it's to aim at you, probably main you, if i owe you im blowin you to smithereens, cocksuker take one for ya team, and i need you to remember one thing -Jay-Z Encore

4. And I did bad for good but when you're trapped in the hood

You do worse for less, homie earth's a test

Only God can judge me

My heart ain't ugly

But the thoughts that I drop is heavy

Try budge me

Mama loved me, pop left me

Still the homies call me lucky lefty

I'm flashy and bentley

Deceptively smart

I make hustlin' heaven and pimpin' an art

Long as I know that I'm blessed

'Cause I'm loved in depth

I can walk trough water and not get wet

I'm that fresh-- Jay-Z Lenny Kravitz --Storm Remix

3. Jigga Man, mo' better, mo' cheddar

Foes knock the man off your Polo sweater

Roll with the R-O-C, A-Fella

Remember me? The teachers used to fail us

Now it's mo' scrilla, hoe killers

Fo'-wheelers, we - gorillas

Oh please feel us - we heat holders

Fightin? Listen boy, Roy Jones couldn't still us

-Jay-Z you, me, him her

2... a lime to a lemon, my V-A women

walk in Manolo Blahniks cause my condo with elevators in 'em

She wanna wrinkle my linens

So I sprinkle her with gin and then we begin sinnin, uhh

Blasphemy, oh my God, we be sinnin

She keeps scratchin me like she tiger in 'em

This is exactly, why I had to pin her

to the bed like a wrestler, her to press on her, uhh---

Jay-Z F**K All Nite

1. Jay-Z Grammy Family Freestyle on Funk Flex....

Inspired by Basquiat, my chariot's on fire

Everybody took shots, hit my body up, I'm tired

Build me up, break me down to build me up again

They like, Hov we need you back so we can kill your ass again

Hov got flow though he's no Big and Pac, but he's close

How I'm 'posed to win, they got me fightin' ghosts

Same sword they knight you they gon' good night you with

Sh.., Thats' only half if they like you

That ain't even the half what they might do

Don't believe me, ask Michael

See Martin, see Malcolm

You see Biggie, see Pac, see success and its outcome

See Jesus, see Judas; see Caesar, see Brutus

See success is like suicide

Suicide, it's a suicide

If you succeed, prepare to be crucified

Media meddles, niggas sue you, you settle

Every step you take, they remind you you ghetto

So it's tough bein' Bobby Brown

To be Bobby then, you gotta be Bobby now

Now the question is, is to have had and lost

Better than not having at [all]
