#20. Chance Counts His Blessings

I know the difference between blessings and worldly possessions

Like my ex girl getting pregnant

And her becoming my everything

Chance with the Supreme Knowledge.

#19. Nas is held to a different standard…

A lot of niggas owe me, I’ma tax ’em

A lot of sisters hold me to somethin’ holy and Catholic

Nas came back hard in 2016. Look for his new album to drop very soon.

#18. Southside Knows ‘Ye Best

I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex

Why? I made that bitch famous (Goddamn)

I made that bitch famous.

Ye made that bitch famous.

#17. The Wisdom of Tip

“Carolina nothing finer than a Black woman who climbs

To the top of the State building claiming that ‘that flag is mine’

Q-Tip – “The Space Program”

Q-Tip shows love to activist Bree Newsome in this line.

#16. Kendrick Levitates Overs His Competition

Look, look

I feel like Pacino in Godfather, I’m charged

Our father who art in Heaven, Kendrick at large

Came in the game with a plan of beatin’ the odds

What an accomplishment, broken promises

Kept my focus anonymous till I dealt with the consequence

The greatest and latest mogul, you know what time it is.

Kendrick Lamar – “Levitate”

Kendrick killed it with this verse on ‘untitled 07.’ Respect.

#15. Dupre sees things differently

“Rest in perfection accept the rejection

I’ve been dreaming the dreams, man, I’m on my inception

Dupre – “Growth Spurt”

With a guest verse on Damian Lillard’s debut album, Dupre makes a huge splash in the rap game.

Prince left his masters where they safe and sound

We never gonna let the elevator take him down.

Went from hangin’ with shooters and clappers

To computer hackers

You built walls? We gon’ prolly dig holes

And if your ass do win, you gon’ prolly get smoked, nigga

#31. J. Cole Hangs It Up… Temporary

How the fuck do I look When I brag to you ’bout some diamond?

Said all that I could say now I play with thoughts of retirement.

The day J. Cole retires will be a sad day for hip hop.
