For me up there is Outkast - "Millenium", De La Soul - "I Am I Be", Black Star - "Thieves In The Night" yeah that's a tight joint, one of the many great songs from mos and kweli, Rass Kass - "Reelishymn", there really is so many, but back to Canibus, yeah that song is genius and I love how the beat changes that and Cenior Studies are my fav. bis songs. peace

Shit, what about Pharoahe on Hypnotical Gases?

"But if I got one breath left
I'll suck wind from the valley of death"

Damn, that shit is fuckin' mind blowing!

And Respiration, that song is so visual, I was bumpin' that today, I just lay in the dark and that song takes me places, it's fucking amazing.

Tough to say, its definitely a dope song and the verse (or epic) is amazing. However, Lyrics wise other tracks come to mind- Jedi mind- Genghis Khan (some dont like the raw, hardcore style but the verses by Jus Allah, Tragedy Khadafi and Vinnie Paz are all insane particularly Jus Allah), Canibus-100 Bars, Mobb Deep-Shook Ones
