    I have two.

    I am the manifestation of study
    not the manifestation of money
    therefore I advance through thought
    not what's manufactured and bought
    (Krs One)

    I start to think and then I sink
    into the paper like I was ink
    when I'm writing I'm trapped in between then lines
    I escape when I finish the rhyme

    My people's if you with me where the f*** you at
    niggaz is strapped and they trying to twist my beer cap
    it' court ajourned from the bad seed from bad sperm
    herb got my wig fried like a bad perm
    what the bloodcloth we smoke pot
    and blow spots you think twice I think not

    Enough to hold you to the brightest of lights,
    to place you dangerously close to that sun.
    Enough to acknowledge the flaws you can't ignore
    and recognize the cause of what's done is done.
    More than enough to put my name behind my ideals,
    and neglect my logic twice daily.
    Enough to keep me looking for my Lucy in the sky with gems,
    when I remember how you used to call me baby.
    Enough to look in my mirror with detest for every tear you shed regardless of why you wept.
    Enough to curse any man who can't appreciate the depth of the ocean I swam till I ran out of breath.

    All of the lyrics to Edan's "Beauty" and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's "The Message" are vivid and stunning.  There aren't really any isolated lines I really love, other than a few comical ones.

    I turn it over like 44s, I wrap filth like the skidmarks on shortys draws, Ive been doing this since I was a brussell sprout back in redblock days when I hussled clout.
    look Im two thirty,they say the youths shirty,dont my loot dirty, Im the one whose worthy.

    Pretty much the whole of Beat Street by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. E.g.

    Spending multi billions, and maybe even trillions
    The cost of weapons ran into zillions
    There’s gold in the street, and diamonds under feet
    And the children in Africa don’t even eat.

    Flies on their faces, they’re living like mice
    And the houses even make the ghetto look nice, Huh!
    The water tastes funny, it’s forever too sunny
    And they work all month and don’t make no money

    A fight for power, a nuclear shower
    And people shout out in the darkest hour
    Of sights unseen and voices unheard
    And finally the bomb gets the last word . . .

    From Hip Hop Lives - KRS-ONE

    "Hip means to know
    It's a form of intelligence
    To be hip is to be up-date and relevant
    Hop is a form of movement
    You can't just observe a hop
    You got to hop up and do it
    Hip and Hop is more than music
    Hip is the knowledge
    Hop is the movement
    Hip and Hop is intelligent movement
    All relevant movement"

    Pretty much the best lyrical explanation of Hip Hop I have heard yet.

    I have a ton more favorites, just a little too busy to dig them all up at the moment.

    DMX on 4,3,2,1.

    Stay out the dark
    Cuz if I catch you when the sun is down
    Run it clown
    Come up off that or I'm gon' gun it down.
    When in doubt, however skull goes, it's gon' be that
    See that,
    that sh**'ll finish you dog, believe that
    Where we at, do your value your life, as much as your possessions?
    Don't be a stupid ni66a, learn a lesson
    I'm gon' get you either way, and it's better to live
    Let me get what's between your sock,
    cause it's, better to give than receive,
    believe what I say when I tell you
    Don't make me put your somewhere where nobody will smell you
    And when the lights is out, they don't come back on
    This ain't a flick you ain't gon' come back on,
    you ain't that strong
    You knew it was wrong,
    but you asked for it baby
    You'se a pink ni66a,
    ski mask for it baby
    so I can hit you up on front teeth, you think I'm sweet?
    Want heat? One deep, leave him behind front seat.

    That closed the shiny suit era.

    Sleep with the fishes, troopers will have to SCUBA
    To scoop you up and find you in a net like they Googled ya
    Who the fuck you think you’re playing around with?
    Vomit in your ear just to show you I sound sick

    This should be considered adult content... I dont even like 99.9% of rap but when I heard this song, it made me laugh.

    the lyrics are priceless at the bottom i included a link to the lyrics and the youtube video.

    Method man~~ Sweet love               

    No doubt, you got the best trout there can be
    Not an everyday, average, Chicken of the Sea,
