    If you don't think thats a good verse your bullshitting yourself. Regardless, of your opinion on the dude and his ego, he takes that song to the next level with his verse. You can feel his passion and energy push it over the edge.

    3. Nas - One Mic (2nd verse)
    4. Nas - One Love (3rd verse)
    5. Lupe Fiasco - Glory (2nd verse) **a personal favorite of mine
  11. Kind-of but not neccessarily in order. One verse reminds me of another after my first three.

    1. Winter Warz is one the top of the list for me too. Capa's verse is one verse that I have committed to memory. "You're stuck on stupid like I'm stuck on the map" Wow. I put this on mixes and tell people, make sure you wait til 2:30 thru.

    2. Dice Raw's verse in The Roots "The Lesson" the last verse on "Do you Want More" "I beat-down punks, cut'em up into fruit chunks.."

    3. AZ's verse in "Life's a Bitch" -- great flowing verse, so good.

    4. Ice Cube's verse to start "Straight Outta Compton" "Mix'em and Cook'em in a pot like Gumbo" -- who gets away with that?

    5. Each verse in Word a Mouth's "Famous Last Words" -- if you haven't heard this one, it is one of the best realatively unknown hip hop songs ever in my opinion. The last verse by Met (I think that's his name) is the best one on the song. "Tell a friend, tell a foe, tell a Ho, tell any fellow, I do it right like Danny Aiello, I'm comin at you like a helicopter, chopped ya, you couldn't hold the mic if I spot ya" Jeezz

    6. Big Daddy Kane's verse in Marley Marl's "The Symphony" -- "battlin me is dangerous to health, so put a quarter in your ass cause ya played yourself"

    7. From KMD's "Nitty Gritty" Satat X's first verse -- and every other verse in this track. Grand Puba on the other end of the track....I can tend to stay in my car when this one's on the mix.

    8. Reverend Willam Burk's first verse on "Who Da Man" -- "Heavy metal blast devils, shovels bury devils, I travel through lower levels, killing demons and rebels."

    9. N.Y.C. Everything's first verse by the RZA, off one of his Bobby Digital albums. Just hard, RZA at his best. "Stuck to your ass like a Victoria Secret wedgie". Meth's verse that follows is pretty hot too.

    10. Guru's (GangStarr) second verse in "Too Deep" is great. "...givin the brothers new visions of how we can gain wealth and gain self esteem and dream of a total different scene - I dress clean stand mean say what I mean and I'm out." RIP Guru.

    Great topic by the way, this stuff gets me through the day! :hello:
