    Nas - Life's a Bitch
    Wu-Tang - Triumph
    Common - I Used to Love H.E.R.

    yeah, Nature of the Threat did come to mind, but I'm a white christian, so I don't personally like that track. Impressive, but it basically is anti-me.

    Heavy Mental is some trippy shit, It might be over my head

    true say on both points but the lyrics r crazy on both points even though both killah priest and rass kass opinion can be a bit OTT on the tunes.What about Mos Defs verse on thieves in the night

    Say word. I was gonna say Nature Of The Threat, too, that's another 7 1/2 minute of pretty much non stop spittin', and I'm anti-Christian so I'm cool with it.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

    I think both Mos Def and Kweli had amazing verses on Theives in the Night, but Mos did steal the show. I just listend to Theives in the night again, and Mos's verse is definalty up there as far as best verses ever, but it's not my favorite on the album. Talib Kweli on Respiration, damn. The whole Respiration song would definatly rank up with Poet Laureate 2.

    Beware has one of my favorite lines ever "Flawless victory, yall niggaz can't do shit to me, physically, lyrically, hypothetically, realistically." I don't think the song is on the level of the one's we've mentioned though.
    Those 2 Nas songs definatly entered my mind too.

    I know Guru isn't the most incredible MC, but I really feel what he says on Moment of Truth.

    No doubt Guru's "Moment of Truth" is up there.

    Rakim - The Mystery (Who is God?)
    Rakim - The Saga Begins

    There are several other Rakim songs that are pretty much equal.

    Nas - Star Wars

    It's not as good but it's still quality.
