Yes!!

#5 , RA. Also one of my favorite mc's. He also mentions how his daddy felt about that song in the song Legends never die (daddy's halo)
#2 is so not my generation lol, only lil I've heard is wayne. Staying clear of all those other ones.
#7 is outcast...I remember that because of that chilling line, I sampled it once!
#1, I don't know....but these words fit my life. OK..I cheated and put the words on google, it´s I aint no joke. I should know that since I still own the album it's on.
#4 is insane....usual suspects by him is also a classic track to me.
#9 dropped a great album this year... the contrast between humble and pride is so cool. One track being all energy/hype while the other one, is way more low key.

I see you also added Big L in there. He gets a 5 automatically.


Which reminds me of...

Dead in the middle of Little Italy, little did we know
That we riddled two middlemen who didn't do diddily

More about the delivery in this one though!


and thanks for making this thread, the hip hop geek in me has awoken! I have to admit I don't know all the ones you mentioned , which is fun...I have to go and research. I like researching and hip hop is my first love.


Big Pun on Twins! He bodied that track! Def 5/5

Awesome thread! #10 Canibus, one of the greatest!!

Here's a few gems I like myself...

#1
We chasing after death just to call ourselves brave
But everyday, next man meet with the grave
I give a damn if any fan recall my legacy
I'm trying to live life in the sight of God's memory like that y'all

#2
How many cats you know speak the illegit rhyme after rhyme diligent?
85 percent represent ignorant
Either you innocent or guilty
Some of my favorite emcees fell off
It damn near killed me
Looking at the kids that was true hip-hop
Nowadays, them cats don't even do hip-hop

#3
In the world filled with pestilence and hatred
Some say we'll be rescued by spaceships
I stay away from crooks and study books by the ancients
When the world gets too crazy hip-hop helps me escape it

#4
'cause if you go platinum, it's got nothing to do with luck
it just means that a million people are stupid as #

#5
Cut you short and escort you to my innermost thoughts
Dreams of fighting for my freedom in the most high courts
But jump shots get blocked and dreams get shatterred
And when the day turns night, souls get bruised and batterred

#6
I'm wishin' this was a dream, maybe it's smoke in this mirror
Wish I could change it all just by blowin' smoke in the mirror
Been such a long ride, wishin' I was on the side
To get caffeine pills to stay awake with Sean Price
If I was by Eric Garner, I'd have yelled at the pigs
Gave him all my cash, he wouldn't have to sell that cig
Shout to Bobbi Kristina, let her know that I love her
Wish she was alive or didn't die the same as her mother
Maybe my thinkin' is off, when I blink I get thoughts
Of bullets shakin' the door, and tape around Chinx' Porsche
See it damaged my heart, I'd be right in Yams' car
To get the purp out his cup, and get his hands off the bar
Tell Stack that I miss him, see we losin' a lot
I wanna hear from Shakir, I still miss Stuart Scott
Chris Lighty, Robin Williams still to this day
I pray nobody ever feel that way, too many men die

#7
Sometimes you gotta dig deep when problems come near
Don't fear, things get severe for everybody everywhere
Why do bad things happen to good people?
Seems that life is just a constant war between good and evil

#8
I ain't your average cat
# rap, I'm tryna make cream, and that's that
Whatever it takes, however, it gots to go down
Four mics on stage, a mother#in' four pound

#9
Through the lights, cameras, and action, glamour, glitters, and gold
I unfold the scroll, plant seeds to stampede the globe
When I'm deceased, by then the beast arise like yeast
To conquer peace leaving savages to roam in the streets
Live on the run, police paying me to give in my gun
Trick my wisdom with the system that imprisoned my son
Smoke a gold leaf, I hold heat, nonchalantly
I'm raunchy, but things I do is real it never haunts me

#10
Return... to the way we were before the influx of drugs and money occurred
Return... to the way we was before the rise of lies, fake players and thugs

These are some of my favs! I will probably remember more soon as I press reply lol
Number six was kinda cheating, since its the whole verse...but it's just too damn good to not post it imo.


1 is mos def off the blackstar album but can't remember the name of the track. 8 is prodigy on hell on earth. 9 is nas? 4 is immortal technique?

1. When I roll through your crew,
Your all monkey see monkey do,
That's why you swing from my *snip*
While you fling your own poo,


2. I walk tall swinging a thick stick
Your holding a thumbtack with limp wrists
Scarred from stitches where the knife slit,
Sadistic yet romantic
Mike stivic never panics
when I think past your gambit
You lose a rook in transit

Respectfully,

For me, Prodigy's last verse on Cradle to the Grave will always give me straight chills. That and Pearly Gates-so cold!

Speaking of P, have you seen this video of him driving/talking about lyrics (conscious vs sleepy), Tupac, etc? He truly is the realest.
(won't embed)
www.youtube.com...
Now for some more bars


15.
I always wondered what death would be like
Especially when duke died and came back
And said he didn't see light
Was that a glimpse into eternal sleep? no afterlife?
Or promise of hell? the mystery as dark as the night
All signs told me my days were numbered walking the earth
And I'd go out just as bloody as I did on my birth
My mother in pain she's still alive feeling the hurt
But my agony died with me when the weaponry burst
Was it my destiny to lead a caravan in a hearse?
I always thought I'd lead revolutionary victory first
But my enemy caught me slipping and dealt me the curse
Now all my mind could think about is this verse

While your vote of confidence is inspiring,
I don't think I will be matching wits with Kevin hart
and coming out on top anytime soon...

If you were to make a rap battle thread I would
Participate here though.

My phone has been acting really wonky lately .
It does not fully load pages ,so atm I am unable to
Award stars or flags or access private messages.
I am working on getting a new one, in the meantime
I am just happy to be able to post and read.

#3. It looks ominous for your populace,
Like sparticus revolting on the romans,
Sword swinging mouth foaming,
Call me Conan,
Cauldron smoking,
Its a bad omen,
For you roaming Ronin,

#4 fittingly

The fourth horsemen,
Pale horse riding Norseman,
Psycho turns your sons into oarsman,
And calls them all Norman,
"Sail in on the storm men!"
We'll pillage these whores and row out with our portion..

/taps foot impatiently...

Link the thread to the shed when you make it. Also please make sure people are reminded to keep it within the T&C's..we had a 13 page thread closed and deleted ..

While the mods were extremely lenient for a long time (4 years) , eventually it was closed
Due to staff review.

mods I get it. It had to be done. I don't blame yas one bit. Doesn't mean I am happy about it

If you put it in the mud pit please link it here and the shed, I rarely look at those and don't want to miss it.

I do have a fear that putting it in the mud pit would encourage a lot of trump and Hillary bashing, and derail a fun thread.

I am not a thread maker, I am a participator,
So however you go forward I'll be sure to chime in three or four posts deep so I can gather ammo before I decimate.

Hmm, yes that is a very fair point. I will take all into consideration and will post a link here and in The Shed to make sure you are in the know


I'll have a few bars here to comb through for ammo and got tons of bombs stored up and well I could manufacture more on the fly


Stay tuned!



ETA: All we're talking here is vulgarity (t&c) or are we going to have to toe the line as far as taking shots?

Thinking twice I'm sure we could manage to keep to t&c's. It will add to the fun.

Vulgarity masked in metaphor seemed to get a free pass. We had a few people participating with a how shall I say...limited vocabulary and imagination...

I meant gather ammo in the sense of letting a few people go first so I have words to twist.
..

I would never bite anyone else's rhymes(knowingly*) in a verbal duel.

* I say knowingly because there are times when your subconscious remembers a line you heard twenty years ago but your cognitive self has no clue ... or maybe that is just me lol..

PS: Speaking of biting lines, awares or unawares, I just heard this line the other day of Prodigy:

Them nig**s bleed just like us so show em where we come from
Queens; leavin niggas done son

This was before Biggie's Life After Death.. I wonder if Biggie jacked P's line? Or coincidence or what?

This is going to be fun .



Its funny that you mention that example. I will admit I am heavily influenced by e.p.m.d. and Pete rock and cl smooth..later on I was into the wu .. method man reakwon, the genius.. and there would always come a bar or a half a bar that I heard and thought I can take that to a better place..and a lot of my better verses have been built off those lines..I take it someplace else and then when I m done I chop that line..there is a good chance big heard that line and took the rest
of his rap to a better place in his mind. Maybe that line was so integral to where he went he could not chop it..

Stayed till the keg was empty so its less heavy,
Then convinced them my dingleberries taste like cherries,
Now they sharecropping on my testes .....

Zosimov,
I calmly call you zozzy,
Legs furry like fozzy,
Southern forest unkempt,
Let's call it motley,
You need to clean up your kingdom,
For my kingpin,
Relax I'm just kidding,
You still in this??
This delinquent would be remiss,
If I didn't offer a swift kiss,
With a soft wind from my brown winkus,
I waft when I walk,excuse me princess,
Plus I trash when talk,burns like incense ,
When I'm incensed I smolder ,
And grow bolder, no disrespect just disclosure,
I won't repent or relent,these rhymes will only grow colder....

Make the battle thread!

Let's do this!

Hey Meathead, you want beef?
All I'll give you is grief
You'll get beat on the head
tenderizing that meat. I leave you weak
can't speak gwen stephani in this piece
No doubt I'll throw you out and leave you walking the streets.
You think you King pin? That theory's thread thin
That's magic that Merlin or CNN couldn't spin
I'm knocking those pins down cause I always win
This is how you lose before you even begin.
So you fart when you walk-
Can't say that's a shock,
But did you know your breath emits that same stench when you talk?
Spitting verbal excrement you pass as bars
Well I'm giving my testament you'll never get far.
So all I got to say is you don't want none of this.
Because as of today
I'm running this biz
And you can call me the boss cause I'm gunning for hits
and I don't miss, look Stivic, you'll regret starting this sh!zz.

LOL! OK THE NIGHT OF THE FIGHT IS DRAWING NEAR!!! GIVE ME TIME TO COME UP WITH THE OPENING AND THEN IT'S ON!!!




PS, don't worry I WILL keep my word.. got a bit of family stuff to handle so my mind has been elsewhere.

Ha ha peace my friend
