right now for me, it's gotta be J-Live's 3rd verse on Stir of Echoes (offa All of the Above). I originally heard him spit that verse on a Chicago radio show with Vakill, and the verse is just amazing...

Ayo I'm trapped in the mind of a mad man literally
It's not a metaphor kid, pay attention
Reporting to you live from this first dimension
In the real crowded room, I just want some attention
And since you lack the bright, like high beams at night
The silence of the noise is deafenin' to hear
My lack long vision is the jack of a position
But I can't tell if I'm in the front of the rear
Formless I don't know if I'm a circle or square
Let alone solid liquid or air
I'm completing myself
But can't confirm or deny if I'm actually here
That's quite a fucked-up predicament, yeah
I feel at home but I gotta escape
This paradox in a box, I'm intent to solve this mystery
I'm made up of dreams and nightmares
Soliloquies, dialogues, arguments
Fantasies, memories, imagery, symmetry, alcohol, history
Love, life, death, joy, remorse and sympathy
Actions, wishes, reactin' and hopin'
But everytime the beat comes the door opens
The out-of-our-body experience is showing me
Jettin' from the exit, the entrance, the outlet
I'm strapplin' through veins, blood vessels and muscle tissue
Till it goes pitch black, and I still don't know if I'm out yet
I wake up from the blackout, finish with the race
Confined in a two-dimensional blank space
Looking back on my original birth place
Now taking the shape of a young black face
Parts of my physical erased and replaced
What was sight and sound is now feel and taste
I **tal a fruit punch laced with toothpaste
I'm shot from a cannon with amazing grace
My identity revealed with the mystery solved
I see my purpose in life as I travel through time
Ridin' the beat through audio wires recording venaire
Waves hit your minds, I'm a J-Live rhyme!




BEAUTIFUL

Canibus - Poet Laureate II

(insane verse, one of best ive heard. really have to listen to it to get the flow, because bis' tend to pronounce words so they rhyme. This track is crazy, if you havent heard it id recomend you get the album.)


Alone in my room, looking thru the 32X telescope zoom
adjusting the focus of the moon
One should not assume the philosophy of David Hume
is nothing more then a subjective conclusion
What is the maximum field rate application?
the run away glaciation surrounding the ocean basin
affects the population, fluctuation
on a continuous basis but thats just the basics
The juxtaposition of Canibus's position
the precision something no other has written
Way above and beyond what was intended
the unparallel Malleable annunciation of a sentence
You didnt go to college obviously
I can tell by your ungodly unintelligible terminology
A remarkable odyssey, the rhymes of modern speeds
when the brain orders the body not to breathe
Incompetency is not up to speed, you not in my league
you couldnt possibly be hotter then me
Or oppositely your minus 25 degrees, you'd squeeze
but the condensation makes rifle barrels freeze
Allow me to speak figuratively, nigga please
my intellectual properties are about the size of Greece
Your counselor advised you not to speak
my counselor advised me to keep rhymin until they stopped the beat
In the words of Joseph Heller, "I learned how to write better"
even though it sort of urked me
He said he didnt understand the process of the imagination
but he felt he was at its mercy
Which exploits my point perfectly and certainly reinforces
the reason why nobody's probably ever heard of me
Couldnt understand what I mean by ill
unless you try to translate what I print to film
This is the line of will, the circle of time
the cycle of eternity, the emergence of 1 line
Academic phonetics render critics tounge-tied
Ive personified dry humor of cum-laude alumni
A wise man sees failure as progress
a fool divorces his knowledge and misses the logic
And loses his soul in the process
obsessed with nonsense with a caricature that has no content
My style is masterful, multi-lateral
I could battle a fool and be naturally cruel
Words of scourn are a disasterous tool
from an existentialist's view, I'm a better rapper then you
Grab the mic and rip your physical fabric in 2
my attitude is fucked up but abrogable
Different methods interpreted into different forms
from entirely different perceptions and seen from different norms
Not to spit in the palm theres much more involved
theres much more pieces of the puzzle for you to solve
48 orders of mechanical laws
and rays of creational cause, enhance the cadence of my bars
Maybe I am self-obsorbed
but thats the effect, to find the cause you should ask my A&R
Today is what it is, but only because yesterday was what it was
permitting you heard of Beezlebub
A tale of demons and drugs, pissy drunk in the club
with the DJ doing the needle rub
Chances are you'll never see me son
yeah I know my names Canibus but I cant help you if you need a dub

thats an amazing verse, i love the way the beat changes wen he starts spittin.

right now my favourite verse is probably Pharoahe Monchs second verse from 'Prisoners of War'. its one of his best displays of lyricism

^dunno how many bars are in that entire track (poet laureate), but it is like 7 mins of spitting. has to be like 200 bars.

Most of that quoted Canibus verse is garbage imo. Still a great track as a whole though.

I don't have a favourite verse. I was looking for a K Rino verse I wanted to post, but I can't find it anywhere. It's not a competition though. I'm just saying I think most of that quoted part of that Canibus song is garbage. Just my opinion.
