    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, the things I do is real it never haunts me
    While, funny style ****** roll in the pile
    Rooster heads profile on a bus to Rikers Isle
    Holding weed inside they pussy with they minds on the pretty things in life
    Props is a true thug's wife
    It's like a cycle, ****** come home, some'll go in
    Do a bullet, come back, do the same **** again
    From the womb to the tomb, presume the unpredictable
    Guns salute life, rapidly, that's the ritual

    I've been ****ed over, left for dead, dissed and forgotten
    Luck ran out, they hoped that I'd be gone, stiff and rotten
    Y'all just piss on me, **** on me, spit on my grave
    Talk about me, laugh behind my back but in my face
    Y'all some well wishers, friendly actin', envy hidin' snakes
    With your hands out for my money, man, how much can I take
    When these streets keep callin', heard it when I was sleep
    That this Gay-Z and Cockafella Records wanted beef
    Started cockin' up my weapon, slowly loadin' up this ammo
    To explode it on a camel and his soldiers
    I can handle this for dolo
    And his manuscript just sound stupid
    When KRS already made an album called Blueprint
    First Biggie's your man
    Then you got the nerve to say that you better than Big
    **** suckin' lips
    Why don't you let the late, great veteran live

    I got more riches than you, **** more *****es than you
    Only thing I haven't got is more stitches than you
    ****ing punk, you ain't a leader what, nobody followed you

    Yeah but is bragging really all that great when you've got people like Nas and Kendrick rapping about actual issues? Like, it's fun to listen to, but it's not impressive is it; it's just wordplay. How about some wordplay with some meaning behind it too.
    It's not bragging - obviously he's just coming up with punchlines he's not saying the truth. That's what old school emcees did. Big L was young when he did this **** anyway and did actually put out some real issue stuff like street struck before he died. Besides, to compare Kendrick to Big L is a ****ing joke. You'd be put down on any rap forum. Listen, anyone can talk about an important issue but not many can come up with lyrics like L can. Nobody does double barrelled rhymes like that man. Nas is obviously one of the greatest lyricists of all time and Kendrick is dope but he is absolutely nothing compared to L.

    If we gotta dumb down our style and ABC it
    Then so be it
    .Cause nowadays these kids, jeez
    Don't give a **** about lyrics
    All they wanna hear is a beat and that's it
    Long as they can go to the club and get blitz
    Pick up some chicks and get some digits
    And the DJ's playing them hits
    Oh, this my jam, this my ****
    We don't know a word to a verse,
    All we know is the chorus
    'Cause the chorus repeats the same four words for us
    And the songs ginormous, the whole formula's switched
    'Cause we don't know anymore, what are hits
    Is it the beat, is it the rap?
    Is it a finger snap or the same 808 clap?
    And how do we adapt and get TRL votes
    When 13 year olds control the remote
    And Ashley's got a brand new nose
    We gotta put some new emphasis on our syllables

    [Jay-Z]
    If the emphasis on the compact disc isn't the beat
    Than I'm gonna feature EM and get rich
    And let Dre mix the **** and drive off in the Range Ro
    'Cause everywhere I go they love the bling bling flow
    Bang bang look at the way my chain glow
    The ring on my fing' cost Jermaine a lot of dough, oh
    The **** am I busting my brain for?
    It's just the way the game go, oh, it takes 2 to tango
    You call this a lame flow
    You bought the ****
    I guess you to blame too
    I just found the angle
    No more reality flow
    I'm tryna time my album dropping with a reality show
    **** the Mac 11 in front of Hot 97
    And call my publicist, tell her, "We're in press heaven"
    No one gives a **** except some kids who just got into sex on the Internet
    So you want the chat room or the house of Malibu, Em?
    Your emphasis is on the wrong syllable

    [Dr Dre]
    They said 30's the new 20
    Funny, must mean 40's the new 30
    Interesting 'cause ever since then it's been innocence
    An extension for veteran rappers that are better than half
    Of the **** coming out right now
    It's all trash
    The torch is gonna burn out before it gets passed
    Jay said it's his last and 50 and Em
    Then what? Detox drops what we got then
    So now our whole camps is running around scrambling over what to do
    Gambling everytime we put a record out
    Just looking for that hook

    [Eminem]
    (Wait, Dre, look)
    Shorty I love you
    And you love me too
    We were meant to be 'cause shorty
    You love me
    And I love you too
    And I promise I'll be true to you

    [50 Cent]
    Go shorty, it's your birthday
    You made it just in time to hear my wordplay
    It's the kid that flip flows who used to flip O's
    And run G for days used to see how I get hoes
    I'm international, I get my **** licked round the globe
    I'm sick right into shows, riding on lolo's
    Puffing on coco, my ***** in Manolo's
    Don't **** with the dodo's, that's slang for dumb hoes
    I playing, I ain't got time to joke, joke
    You **** around, you could get your ass smoked lock,
    It's not a game, me B, I ain't playing
    Beat behind me playing, so you ain't hear anyway
    You don't hear what I'm saying
    Me fin-nini-na
    Fee-fi-dididee-yay
    Just give me my check and I'll be on my way
    Sunny bunny money and funny
    You ain't even listening and I just took your money

    [Stat Quo]
    There once was a time everywhere he turned
    Shady aftermath was all you heard
    But they say 50 sang too much
    And Em got soft
    And they say Dre just fell the **** off
    Well, **** the "**** off"s
    All y'all eat salt, be mad, we bad fresh up outta the vault, oh!
    New syllables eat ball, you ****s off's
    Your house, your ***** I'm getting sucked off
    East, south, midwest, even up north
    Falling victim to wax, spitting, bring out the white chalk
    All for the gingerbread, we get it and get lost
    Catch me if you can, I'm running past while y'all walk

    [Ca$hi$]
    Shady made me for bringing it back
    For the history of rap
    It's gone with a snap, a sneer and a clap
    What happened to just spitting about living in the mother****ing city you at
    In the grimiest condition, I breath in drama
    King Mathers and Cash me, that's freak karma
    I'm everything, anything, you could never be
    It's a hitting, rhyme in the month deep
    I speak with a piece, no peace on my mind
    I repeat every evil deed done of mine
    No rest contest, contract to sign
    By blood I'm in this squad for life
    Hear out my wind pipes and I just chime
    I'm the reason you guys won't say that line
    I'm crazy renegade like Em and Jay-Z
    I'm Rosemary's baby, I want you to hate me

    [Eminem]
    Shorty I love you
    And you love me too
    We were meant to be cause shorty
    You love me
    And I love you too
    And I promise I'll be true to you

    [Talking]
    It is not about lyrics anymore,
    It is not about lyrics anymore
    It's about a hot beat, a hot beat
    It's about a hot beat, a hot beat
    A hot, hot, hot beat
    And a catchy hook
    A hot, hot, hot beat
    And a catchy hook
    Nobody gives a damn about them syllables, sillyle-ables, whatever they are
    I don't care if you gotta rhyme smo, joe, toe and glow
    Now get out there and sell some god-damn records

    Haha, music isn't about 'forums', it's about ideas and emotions and stories. Big L is undoubtedly a great but I don't know how you can say self-inflated lines like these are the best when you've got people like Mos Def and Dälek actually looking outwards and talking about the world around them. Sick of ********s like Kanye and Jay Z telling us how great they are all the time.

    There's a few that tout it as the greatest verse in rap music, ever. Not sure if I'd go that far though it's certainly up there.

    If all you want is a good story read Shakespeare. There is a place for story telling in rap of course but it's just one factor. Lyrical creativity is another. Nas has some verses that talk about nothing that deep but they are infinitely better verses than anything Pac has ever written. To reiterate, anybody can write about something deep (admittedly not everyone can make it sound good) but not everyone has the creativity of a Nas, Big L or Rakim. You might not like it but there is nobody in the rap game who knows their stuff that doesn't admire L. If you don't like his music fine, but nobody came up with punchlines like him. Em is a great lyricist and one of the greatest rappers and has his fair share of non deep stuff and none of this non-deep stuff compares lyrically to what L did, despite the fact that Em is one of the best lyrically. What Jay Z and Kanye do is different to what L did - L's stuff was tongue in cheek/dark stuff whereas what Hova and Kanye do nowadays is actually bragging. In reality though Jay Z used to be good but he still got murdered lyrically by L in 98 on their freestyle.

    I do. I also like music that does the same. By the way, Shakespeare was a better lyricist than any of these guys. Obviously.

    To reiterate, anybody can write about something deep (admittedly not everyone can make it sound good) but not everyone has the creativity of a Nas, Big L or Rakim.
    That is such nonsense. Your point about lyricism and storytelling being two different factors is a great one, which is why the best rappers do both. These Big L lines only do one. As Iain Banks said, "You have to have something worth saying and then the ability to say it – writing's a double skill, really."

    You might not like it but there is nobody in the rap game who knows their stuff that doesn't admire L. If you don't like his music fine, but nobody came up with punchlines like him. Em is a great lyricist and one of the greatest rappers and has his fair share of non deep stuff and none of this non-deep stuff compares lyrically to what L did, despite the fact that Em is one of the best lyrically.

In reality though Jay Z used to be good but he still got murdered lyrically by L in 98 on their freestyle.
    To quote myself: "Big L is undoubtedly a great." I'm not talking about him, I'm talking about these lines. How is there anything multi-layered about this:

    "‘Cause if Big L got the AIDS every cutie in the city got it
    I’m a street genius with a unique penis
    Got fly chicks on my **** that don’t even speak English"

    That just sounds like shallow bragging to me.

    Triple-triple syllable rhyme and funny at the same time. It's not bragging because it's not supposed to be taken seriously. Literally every rhyme of L's was creative and polysyllabic. It takes a unique character to make pure punchlines sound great.
