  6. "All you haters with yo' hands in yo' ears - it's okay cause later, it will sneak up on you like it's Metal Gear, put you in a chokehold, and then unconciously you'll hear"


    MGS reference was the best imo.

  7. i love Biggie's line so simple yet so dope..classic line "Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis / When I was dead broke, man, I couldn't picture this." and the flow too damn..prolly had the dopest flow in hip hop history besides Big Pun.

    beanie sigel "Ayo, I cop power pellets (and y'all call 'em bricks) / I make little dots (and y'all chop rocks to flip) / Before Junior, they had me out on a chase / Running from these ghost monsters y'all calling the jakes / All I do is stack loot, run around and eat fruit / And harass these lady cops named Pinky and Sue / My whole life been a maze in a chase / Can't keep still without these monsters on my back invadin' my space / I got two hitmen that'll bury you brothers / They rule the underworld, you know 'em as the Mario brothers / Straight cannons, and won't hesitate to shoot ya / And they stay goin' to war with that Latin King Koopa / I got a worker named Frogger, when I say jump he leap / A highway boy who be runnin' the streets / With that package, dodgin' through traffic that's narrow / And my n***a Donkey Kong bringin' weed in by the barrels"

    those were my 2 favorites on that list..

  10. How about "fire breathing dragon, he bet not harm me, or be sorry when he meets my one man army" That's a perfect line referring to a classic video game

  11. I love Lu's "I'm Coming" freestyle when he said "Mama raised a troopa, they tryin hit me in my head like Koopa, but I move like Supa, wit the hood on my shoulder like bazookas." Lu is the greatest rapper alive folks.

  12. Maybe because he doesn't exactly SAY its Duck Hunt, but that Duck Hunt sex euphemism in "Champ Is Here" is sick!!!!
