- 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).

- 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).

- 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).
