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
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
I bomb Atomicly Socraties philosophy
and hypothesis can't define how I be droping theses
mockeries lyricly perform armed robberies
Flee with the lottery possibly they spotted me
Inspectah Deck (Wu-Tang Triumph)
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.
"Why should I be sober when God is so clearly doped out of his mind?!"
"I rule the world like my name is Love . . ."
Christbearer from Black Knights
The more money we talk about, the more problem you see.
"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"
California...knows how to party
California...knows how to party
In the citaaay of L.A.
In the citaaay of good ol' Watts
In the citaaay, the city of Compton
We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin!
God bless my soul, before I put my foot down and begin to stroll
And to the drama I built, and all unfinished beef
You will soon be killed, put us together
It's like mixin vodka and milk
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 . . .
"You can't wait around for action, gotta take it like a bike.
Ride off into the sunset,live your fairy tale.
Bury the hell you fear so that you can see things clear"
"When your mind is in a whirwhind, you better remember to stop.
And smell the roses between dozin, cause for every breath you take upon this planet you're one of the chosen."
"I'm like Sam the butcher, bringin Alice the meat,
I'm like Fred Flinstone drivin around with both feet."
- Beastie Boys
"Hey baby! Am I crazy? Or were you givin me the eye?"
"PunchDrunk Love" by Common featuring Kanye
I got tooooo many but here's a couple from Tip.
"The comparisons insultin' my intelligence Cuz real recognize real, and real you ain't never been And never" TI-My Life
"Verses autobiographical, absolutely classical, the last thing I'm worried about is what another rapper do" TI- Swagga like Us
"I kick that foo' in the head with my shoe!" - Mystik Journeymen, in Firefly Rebellion
your simple word just dont move me
you minor we major
your all up in the game and dont deserve to be a player
dont make me have to call your name out
your crew is feather weight
my gun shots will make you levatate
I'm only 19 but my mind is old and when thing get
for real my warm heart turns cold
Wow,didnt know we had this many hip-hop heads on hp...always thought we had a lot of stuck-ups...anyways, here's one of mine, from Lupe Fiasco...PUT YOU ON GAME - "I am the blood of this city, its gas, water and electricity, I'm its gym, and its math and its history, the gunshots in the class, and you cant pass if you're missing, G...I thought him better than that, I thought him aim for the head, and hope they never back..." dark, I know.
Got the ladies of the eighties from here to White Castle
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.
Welcome to the candy shop
You smell like sex
Many men want me dead
I want to fuck you
Im in love with a stripper
Tell him he's got to go
I got a big ego
All the single ladies
Drinking Homemade wine in New Orleans
She wore blue Jeans and Rosary
I'll let you lick my lollypop ohhhh
"Hey girl, shut your lips. Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips"
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
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.
Nas "Street Dreams" remix ft. R.Kelly
"I tried to learn the game and only thing I found incredible...
is everything I tried to learn, see I already knew..."
cool calm just like my mom
with a couple of valiums inside her palm..
Love that DMX verse.
Cappadonna's verse on Winter Warz especially when he said.
My repotoire, is U.S.S.R.
P.L.O. style got thrown out the car
and got ran over, by the Method Man jeep
"Your a !$!@%@%@% @#%@%@%
and your !$!@%%@ in the @!$%%@ ground
Bite my !@%Zy61% you Mother !$%!@%@%@%
and @#%@%@ in the !@$%!%!%@%
Peace out *(%@)#%@%&"
pure poetry.. Shakespeare eat your heart out!
I’m cruising with that super bazooka that’ll shoot and ruin ya
Fuck with my ruby you’re choosing a future with Lucifer
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
just one of many great crooked I verse
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,

How do you remain patient when it seems as if everyone else is being blessed but you?There are several things that I've been praying about but at the top of my list, a new job. I know that the economy is bad but many of my friends have landed the job of their dreams while I'm still waiting on...

I'm not here for a fight, honestly. I am a Christian, but not a mainstream one, and certainly not a fundalmentalist. I can't imagine not being a spiritual person I love my spiritual life and only regret that I don't put more into it than I do. I have to say, that I'm not too...
