Well when it comes to rap, i have a lot of inspirations and i listen to them a lot but my biggest influences are Nas and AZ, these dudes are the ones who i listen to most and try to rhyme most like. These two verse are two of my faves:

oo much thugs and alcohol, what a mixture
Just picture... ya life as a whole judged in court with convictions
They telling u your state of mind, like you worthless
So he curses, his moms saying Bible Verses
That's all she works with
But miracles, neva leave the churches
Instead, it hits the pockets of the Preacher just to purchase...
A house, with a swimming pool
Labels me a sinning fool
I'm just a nigga who inherited a winning jewel
To be a trendsetter, wheneva sub-ject to respect...
This and all respect through is the essential
The streets life, hustlin the struggle broke ghettos
Ballin coats settles, slowin inside a glass kettle
There's a Lee-V on my T.V,
Lifestyles of living easy
Got my crew tense, plottin to gips... to get whips... with V.V.'s
Pushing cakes... new and erect is what ten plates
Celebrating and Elevation in the seeds that we make...

off Deja Vu.

So in God I trust, I lust for a 850-deluxe
And in too, I touch a million-plus, ain't much to discuss
Diamonds and double-digits, Gianni Versace down with lizards
It's realism so I visualisin to live it
Movin cleverly wit intentions of longevity
Strong pedigree got me touchin papers, others would never see, G
So do the crest in my claw, flourescents
symbolises the essence, you're sailin in a sweppervescence
Drug investments, a street thug's plug, the insurance, but informers
they had you wanted for warrants 'fore you get enourmous
Life's a performance so players play wit endurance
cos from war sense, any villain's willing to get more intense
They tried to break us but all it did was just make us
travel across acres for papers, bonafide money takers
Cos though we know somehow we all gotta go
As long as we're leavin thievin, we'll be leavin wit some kind of doe,

of Gimme Yours.

^ Good One. It sounded AZ was inspiring towards dreams of financial success on that and he was visual in an interesting way with his wordplay. I never thought of that as inspirational before, but now I recognize A's view on that song more.


First one I thought of was Slick Rick's Hey Young World, I can remember and recite every word from that song. He had a neck and wrist full of jewels, yet was so inspirational and humble as an MC willing to give back, so far from rappers in recent years.

and my other favorites are

Be A Father To Your Child
CREAM, Tomorrow
Love's Gonna Getcha
Fight The Power, Shut Em Down
Young Gifted & Black, Lean On Me
Watch Roger Do His Thing
Express Yourself
Just To Get A Rep, Say Your Prayers (R.I.P. Guru)

Gangstarr-Moment of Truth, even before I was in my current stage of really being into hip hop, I used to listen to Gangstarr alot at points. Guru and Premier were/are sick. This track is really really relevant and strong in light of Guru's passing.

RIP Keith.

Scarface - Safe

You're down and out, money funny, you hustle and die
On the verge of pawnin your jewelry and sellin your ride
Somebody shoulda told him ain't no life in these streets
You only out here 'til you touch it, when you touch it you eat
Niggaz done took too many chances shovelin snow
And ended up facin a lifetime for tryin to sco'
I'm givin livin definitions on the subject of dope
One week he back on his feet, the next he's WHOA
I was a 70's baby, raised in the 80's
I was barely touchin 16 when shit got crazy
I remember in the 80's, me and pop would ride
Now we conversate on acres we's about to buy
He had already been what I'm about to go through
Told me ain't no sense in gamblin if you gamble to lose
If you made twelve dollars, you put seven away
and lived off the five, and never ever fuck with ya safe

Nobody comes to the Father but through Me. I am the way, the truth, and the life.

Do not drink only water, but also a little wine, for your stomach and other ailments.
