one of his illest rhymes has to be "suicide might commit it with your belt...keep your pants on homie"

"But I can't fill it like a flathead in a Philips Don't get it twisted nigga, I'm no tool More cool than a pool in a blizzard With ice cubes in it during Christmas Meanin' there's no school in the misfit Like I'm throwin' a fit Or I just can't fit it, tidbit too big It's gotta hem it til it's fresh to death Dressed to kill it, like uhh!"

Yeah, gotta agree with you there VANTES. Glory had some ridiculously mad lyrics.

Last verse on Glory... "And you gotta respect the position in which you’re playing Never let your heart reflect the conditions in which its stained Even if it’s dark, and the temperature is the same As winters in the Ukraine and your appendages is in chains Have forgiveness from the start, keep maliciousness restrained Be smart, never indiscriminate in your aim Cuz it’s innocent witnesses oblivious to the thangs To calm the ones the hypnotists keep entertained And you can’t arch, have some resilience in your frame Stay resistant, and committed to what you’re saying Cuz, they’ll flip it the minute that you refrain Read the book and the lines and literature in between You gotta be educated when going against the grain Pay attention, they illegitimate in their claims They assisted in the killing and pillaging In addition to the addiction, shit is much bigger than just in plain But…" Ridiculous... thought-provoking, yet it flows so smoothly. I love this rhyme...

I really really can not sum it to just one lyric. Here are some of my fav: "I am still a raisin in the sun, raging against the machine"--go go gadget flow "Lust can sometimes override trust. She said that's why she gave it up"--Real "I love the Lord, but sometimes it's like that I love me more" (Really the entire song is crazy lyrically)--The Coolest "I'm thinkin godly, God guard me from the ungodly"--Hurt Me Soul "And the babies that were born in the late '80s. That now have babies that lack Pampers.No Kwaanzas and they lack Santas"--Ghetto Story

"Word to tha nigga who took rap from me Chill i will take rap to where niggas can concieve, to the point where niggas cant agree on which song is best so the arguement is whether i am better than me."

"Never met her before But I think I like her like a metaphor It's hard to get in the car we sit From the intro she rolled down her window just in case I was a skitzo"

I think the whole entire "American Terrorist" song from Food & Liquor holds the best verses ever. Dating back to his Fareinheit mixtape lyrics.

I love her, with all my heart Every vein, every vessel Every bullet lodged With every flower that I ever took apart She said- that she would give me greatness Status, placement above the others My face would grace covers Of the magazines of the hustlers Paper, the likes of which that I had never seen Her eyes glow green with the logo of our dreams The purpose of our scene The obscene obsession for the bling She would be my queen I could be her king Together, she would make me cool And we would both rule, forever And I would never feel pain And never be without pleasure, ever, again And if the rain stops And everything's dry She would cry Just so I can drink the tears from her eyes She'll teach me how to fly Even cushion my fall If my engines ever stall And I plummet from the sky But she will keep me high And if I ever die She would commission monuments on her bosom To hum Or maybe she'd retire as well A match made in Heaven set the fires in Hell I remember right before the album came out Lupe was doing some college conference of something idk, but anyways he was walking through the aisles reciting this verse and it drove me crazy!lol that song is so serious!

It's a verse... (Verse 2 of Mean N Vicious) Truthfully, I have trouble with second verses Cuz the first one be so intimidating It'd be bullying and picking on it instigating Pointing out all the second ones limitations Like, "you aint nothing but an imitation" Like bits of bacon then it gets the chorus and the beat to together then they gang up on him and get to hating but then around the 8th bar he tires of their conspiring And comiserating, then he find his inspiration To spar he takes a few seconds of judo lessons Gets back on beat then punches the guitar They stand in awe like, "when did you write that?" They even right black First verse already happened so he don't have a chance to fight back I like that You gon respect me A 8 track? Listen to him, feeling Himself Swagger up, and a few ad-libs to back it up Lets back it up I think you've had enough Give me my mic back You ain't even write that Oh its like that? Track stop pumpin' till this n*gga stop frontin' Yeah, yeah Now right back ^^^^^^^^ ILL.

Like anything from Dumb it Down, but one example: Took both pills when the bloke in the trench coat and the locs in chair had approached him here Made it clear as a ghost, so a biter of the throats in the mirror The writer of the quotes for the ghost who's supplier of the notes to the livin' Riveting is Rosy, pockets full of posies, given to the mother of the deceased, awakened at war, till I'm restin in peace

This has always been my favorite This walkin project buildin Now there's hoes sellin hoes like right around the toes And the crackheads beg at about the lower leg There's crooked police that's stationed at the knees And they do drive-bys like up and down the thighs And there's a car chase goin on at the waist Keep a vest on my chest I'm sittin in my room as I'm lookin out the face Somethin to write about I still got some damage from fightin the whitehouse,

Damn too many to name right now. But I like "So it's lights out like a light house in the day time. Make you lay down. Make you go to bed. Make you go to sleep like D-Bo when he was choking Craig. That's a headlock. That's what I said I got the whole game in." -Blackout I love how Lupe keeps on topic with each line. Sorry for the breakdown, lol I just love it: So it's light's out like a light house in the daytime(He rhymes 'light's out' and 'light house' and continues the similie of it being out in the day time) Make you lay down . Make you go to sleep like D-Bo when he was choking Craig( You usually want to lay down when the lights are out. And when you are laying down you usually fall asleep. And D-Bo put Craig to sleep in the movie Friday) That's a headlock. That's what I said I got the whole game in...(D-Bo used a head lock on Craig to make him go to sleep and Lupe proclaims he has the rap game in a headlock)
