    Angels - Dirty Money [Official Remix] ft. Lupe Fiasco


    [Verse #1: Lupe Fiasco]
    I see, diamond flooded demons, Lamborghini angels
    Halos down with the doors flapping when they came through
    Windows up, system bumping, you the one they sang to
    Same two, who said they the ones you should send your thanks through
    Pockets full of blessings, they can sanctify and saint you
    You can hear 'em revving up in heaven now, can't you?
    Sandals made of chrome, his soul made of leather
    An engine full of sinning and, candy painted feathers
    The sound of the motor only reverend you confess to
    I see this all in the eyes of the girl I'm next to
    I asked her “Where we going?” and she just told me "Pleasure"
    Hands on the wheel, and her heels on the accelor-
    -Rator, told her wait up, she kept going like et cetera
    But like a broken record, we’ve come too far to just wheel it back, selector
    So we gon’ ride forever, forever, forever, forever, forever

    [Verse #2: Lupe Fiasco]
    Uh, said she was a fan of mine
    Knew she was New Jersey, but said that she was Anaheim
    Butterflies turn to suicides, now it's phantoms flying
    Used to whisper in my ear, but now she tryna 'vander mine
    That holy feeling (Holyfield) all gone, slowly feeling all wrong
    None of this is satisfyin', pull it over, let me out
    I'll just hitchhike back to mine
    Nothing's really as it seems, yeah I shoulda known that
    Thought I called a angel, devils had my phones tapped


    ^^^mine. what were yours?

Mos Def Auditorium lyrics the way I feel sometimes its too hard to sit still things are so passionate times are so real sometimes I try an chill mellow down blowin smoke smile on my face but its really no joke you feel it in the streets people breathe without hope they goin through the motion, they dimmin down they focus the focus gettin clear and the light turn sharp and the eyes go teary, the mind grow weary I speak it so clearly sometimes ya don't hear me I push it past the bass no nations gotta feel me I feel it in my bones, black, I'm so wide awake that I hardly ever sleep, my flows forever deep and its volumes or scriptures when I breath on a beat my presence speak volumes before I say a word I'm every where penthouse pavement and curb cradle to the grave tall lead you onna shell universal ghetto life holla black you know it well quiet storm vital form pen pushed it right across mind is a vital force, high level right across shoulders the lions raw voice is the siren I swing round ring out and bring down the tyrant shocked a small act could knock a giant lopsided the world is so dangerous there's no need for fightin suttins tryna hide like the struggle wont find em and the sun bust through the clouds to clearly remind him everywhere penthouse pavement and curb cradle to the grave talk'll lead you on a shell universal ghetto life holla black you know it well

"Nothing's really as it seems, yeah I shoulda known that Thought I called a angel, devils had my phones tapped". -Angels obviously "& those opposing me have no souls indeed, I’m like a paraplegic, I don’t know defeat…" -Fly Away, Wale Great year in hip hop. 2010 is looking to be a better one.

Surprisingly good verse of the year goes to: Jim Jones - Aint Nothing Like You (Blakroc) They told me pain only shows you where you goin You get to laugh then that shows you where you been And when you get the cash that only shows you how to sin like when you gettin fast money and you blow it in the wind Where we from success one in a million We thought success was getting money in front the buildin End of the summer we was countin up the killins, like they killed baby boy trynna run up in the buildin now Love I bouged one of her rose petals She was from the concrete and came up out the cold ghetto But so gentle But it appears like, on a clear light it could thunderstorm Want some more

Na seriously tho: Lupe Fiasco Popular Demand Made/Maid man, you can call this cleanin' up/ I'm OCD, I never think it's clean enough/ That's what defines me, I never think it's mean enough/ Lines deeper than those waitin' on a sneaker cuz/ You gon' need 2 heads like the King of Clubs just to figure out the meanin' of/ I'm just achievin buzz, so stay out of son/sun way like your drinkin' blood/ This is what it feels like to be in love.... My Favorite Line: Lupe Fiasco Say Sumthin Came up from the bottom of the eye exam ZOOM Now Im like the biggest G up in the room, still hard to see me like the truth on TV

Ha, the verse form OK Player Lupe fiasco- Coexist, the devils in the dealer, the poltergiest is in the pokerchips, Game changer, I practice Iron Swan Song, Tiger Palm & Cobra Fist, Go by many slang name's and sobriquets, Asking me how many lines is in my mind is like asking how many fish can the ocean fit, I set out to do the impossible like an open fist, Achieve the unbelievable like throwing Open Pit, The last line refers to flying saucers, A rhyming Chaucer who came from District 9 but now he's flying over it, Battle Jay Elect? Who has the foolhardy audacity to utter this? I look at him like a high minded brother from another and when we finally encounter with dual flows overdosed on over-the-counter's its gone be like Mulder meets the Mothership, Friend Of The People, Fuck the government...

"The game was looking weak; The whole scene starve; So I came through with some muscle milk and protein bars; Barbells and jump ropes Bowflex's to body in; And a couple Billy Blanks Tae-Bo Karate kicks" Lupe Fiasco - The One (Enemy of the State mixtape) This verse is fire!!

this year? " this is what it sounds like to be in love" and " I dont trust america , after watching zeitgeist" im assuming since thats what plays in my head most of the time, i cant specifially choose just one, but aside hip hop, my girl Alicia keys new cd is soooo beautiful. "Nothing's really as it seems, yeah I shoulda known thatThought I called a angel, devils had my phones tapped" I love that part, it send chills up my spine when i first heard it! nice!

They call me Jay Electronica Fuck that, call me Jay ElecHannukah Jay ElecYarmulke Jay ElecTramadaan Muhammad Asalaamica RasoulAllah Supana Watallah thought your monitor My uzi still weigh a ton, check the barometer Im hotter then the mothafuckin sun, check the thermometer Im bringing ancient mathematics back to modern man My momma told me "never throw a stone and hide your hand" I got a lot of family, you got a lot of fans Thats why the people got my back like the Verizon man I play the back and fade to black and then devise a plan Out in London, smoking, vibin while I ride the tram.

I'm gonna second Eminem's verse on "Forever". Woah. He scared me just WATCHING him in the video. Em's second verse on 'Stay Wide Awake' from Relapse was sick in more ways than one. That rhyme scheme is almost impossible to keep up with. My favorite verse from Lupe is near the end of "Popular Demand" from the new mixtape. The line about having the real God on his side killed me.

This is my fav verse of the year It's Hirst verses and Murakami rhyming, all my raps is super flat, all your raps is super wack, tell him that the future's back, DeLorean rolling down the block you can call it shooting craps, and my roof is back and my wings is up king of car without kalua, so you aint gotta pour the king a cup Young Yakuza but none of my fingers cut so I can still sip red zinga with my pinkies up made man you can call this cleaning up I'm OCD, I never think it's clean enough that's what defines me, I never think it's mean enough lines deeper than those waiting on a sneaker, cuz you gone need two heads like the king of clubs just to figure out the meaning of, I'm just archiving buzz so stay out of the sun-way like you're drinkin' blood this is what it feels like to be in love...ENEMY! I mean come on, I mean look at what I'm droppin' here do this for the blog and the bloggosphere No, you ain't ready for the heavy, so I keep it light as joggin' gear I don't want the throne, I want the helicopter rocking chair Jay gave me a co-sign like I was RocaWear, but be clear I'm not the air I'm the water, fire and the earth; that means I'm doin' dirt, spittin' flames and quenchin' thirst, and plus the real God has been on my side since birth I hope that he forgives me, I hope I do his work in every single verse, Now I might do a dance, I might even jerk, tell them N****s don't hate Only God is great, Enemy Of The State

Johnny 3 Tears Verse 1 I see the children in the rain Like the parade before the pain I see the love, I see the hate I see this world that we can make I see the life, I see the sky Give it all to see you fly Yes, we wave this flag of hatred But you're the ones who made it Watch the beauty of all our lies Passing right before my eyes I hear the hate in all your words All the wars to make us hurt We get so sick oh so sick We never wanted all this Medication for the kids with no reason to live So we march to the drums Of the dammed as we come Watch it burn in the sun We are numb Verse 2 As we walk among these shadows In these streets, these fields of battle Take it up, we wear the medal Raise your hands with burning candles Hear us whisper in the dark In the rain you see the spark Feel the beating of our hearts Fleeting hope as we depart All together, walk alone Against all we've ever known All we've ever really wanted Was a place to call our home But you take all we are The innocence of our hearts Made to kneel before the alter As you tear us apart So we march to the drums Of the dammed as we come Watch it burn in the sun We are numb

Yeah I'll go with the last verse of Shining Down. Amazing song. "You look up, and you see us, shining down on you.."

or "but all we gotta do is keep on and keep the heat on lights on, rim pay, benz pay still broke, still folk steal for meals and kill for thrills Pac said it's real foreal my boy used to preach now he deals dope just to feed 2 seeds true indeed his lady left with his heart shady def milk still chillin on his babies breath grown men takin baby steps instead of takin a stand and blamin the man claimin the game, beggin while I'm prayin for change hatin the players, playin the game on the same team tryna make green but won't leave greed alone get a full plate and wanna eat alone I know vegans and I know heathens that'll eat the bones to each his own, put him on, blast on speakerphone listenin to rap cause our leaders gone hopin it'll lead us home and get my moms straight tryna put a smile on my pops face but it's harder than a broke kid tryna get a prom date trust me, sometimes my own music don't touch me" Blu - Im Gonna Need You

LoL with yah Lu promotin asses. For me, it's between Grand Puba, Mos Def, J. Cole & Blu. "Ayyo shoot up the nose shoot off the lips don't let the world know black people did this Keep em in line with the crack of the whip teach em they history started with slave ships it's time to look past all that man please how many of my people dun swung from trees? How many of my people in the past we lost they constantly remind us of the hol-o-caust but when we speak on it, they say that we whinin snatch your resources down to your last diamond I do this for my ancestors ain't nobody alive gonna tell me I should let that s*** ride Nowadays the old heads are scared of the youth pull a tree from the roots and you kill off the fruit" Grand Puba - RetroActive Mos Def on the "Brooklyn We Go Hard" Remix, which I'm not even gonna attempt to recite. This would probably be verse of the year for me. aaand, "And could I be a star does fame in this game have to change who you are or could I be the same one who came from a far away life, just to make it in these broadway lights now I'm shinin in the broad day... light go figga a slow transition for a lil broke nigga from the ville got a deal, a real life savor dreams of bein behind the wheel like, Jada I chill now cop a little ice later cole, you got the glow like a little lightsaber so, clap for him then applaud Hov, he gave him the platform flow so sick thought he wrote the rap for him no sir, the flow cold as the shoulders of gold diggin hoes when a broke nig approaches told yall I'm focused man, I let you mothaf***as soak it in and clap for him." J. Cole - A Star Is Born

here is ONE of LUPE'S best ever: Some of your smartest have tried to articulate my whole part in this But their fruitless in their harvest The drow grows from my footsteps I'm the one that they follow I am the one that they march with Through the back alleys and the black markets The oval offices, the crack houses and apartments Through the mazes of the queens The pages of the sages and the chambers of the kings Through the veinses of the fiends A paper chase pager, Yo I'm famous on the scene One of the oldest most ancientest things Speak every single language on the planet nya' mean I am the American dream, the rape of Africa, the undying machine The overpriced medicine, the murderous regime The tough guy's front, and the one behind the scenes I am the blood of this city; its gas, water and electricity I'm it's gym and it's math and it's history The gun shots in the class And you can't pass if you missing G I taught them better than that I taught them aim for the head, and hope they never come back I'm glad ya daddy's gone baby, hope he never comes back I hope he's with you mother with my hustlas high in my trap I hope you die in this trash; I can't help it All I hear when you crying is laughs I'm sure somebody find you tied in this bag Behind the hospital, little baby crack addicts had Then maybe you can grow up and be a stripper A welfare receiving, prostituting gold digger You can watch on TV how they should properly depict ya The river shall flow with liquor, quench your thirst on my elixirs I am the safe haven for the rebel run away, and the resistor The trusted misleader, the number one defender And from a throne of their bones, I rule These fools are my fuel so I make them cool Baptize 'em in the water out of Scarface pool And feed em from the table that held the Corleone's Food If you die tell em that you played my game I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name Cause I'm the {*gunshot*}

My favorite verse is from Shining Down Verse 1 Well, well Is that our little author? Coming back; Humming his hymns a little altered. Your attention; Put back on the flow like a department of water Take it off of the door like little Walter Chess? Yes. Baby, I’m Jerry Lawler Rebel with a cause; Outlaw with the lawyer Judge, jury like a loo; Rap name Lupe but my daddy named me Warrior This is his memorial Verse 2 Now if you autotune that shit We can hear the songs from that Opera groomed fat bitch Telling is not the pursuer just the shoe like a blacksmith We're trapped, and moving round in circles like it’s chap stick And that's the same encircled way of thinking that we chat with We'll rap this, around your head like a bandanna’s fabulous Used to wrap his hat's with; Rather being F.E.D.S. instead of National Geographics Well, I’m not having it, now.

This is mine for the fact that you made sure everybody knew that Lupe was here and wasn't playing around!Microphone check, I make em all bounce Every teller in Bank of America, make em all count You gone need the whole staff to add up the amount... It's gonna take to pay me off to keep me out your house To keep me in my zone so that I don't zone out I'm Rich and Po' like Zone 4, thoughts is deep like Tone Loc Walk with me like old folk, cross your street a score's goal'ed I don't rap, I hockey rink... cause my flow is so cold I am on my "mmhmm," they are on they "Oh, No!" I am really in here (hair), they ain't real like Soul Glo Don't you know I'm so sho, them n****'s got no Glow Find a master 'fore you can come back into the dojo
