Kanye West: Never was much of a romantic, I
could never take that intimacy. And I know I did damage, cause
the look in your eyes is killing me. I guess you had an
advantage, cause you could blame me for anything. And I don't
know how I'ma manage if one day you just up and leave.
Jay-Z: And if the day comes I only see him on
the weekend, I just pray we was in love the night we conceived
him. Promise to never leave him even if his mama tweakin',
cause my dad left me and I promised: Never repeat him.
Lauryn Hill: Girlfriend, let me break it down
for you again. You know I only say it cuz I'm truly genuine:
Don't be a hard rock when you really are gem. Baby girl,
respect is just a minimum.
Tupac: But I wonder why we take from our women;
why we r/pe our women; do we hate our women? I think it's
time to kill for our women, time to heal our women, be real to
our women. And if we don't, we'll have a race of babies
that will hate the ladies that make the babies. And since a man
can't make one, he has no right to tell a woman when and
where to create one. So will the real men let up? I know
you're fed up, ladies, but keep your head up.
Common: It's important we communicate and
tune the fate of this union to the right pitch. I never call you
my b/tch or even my boo. There's so much in a name and so
much more in you.
Lil Wayne: And if you come from under that water
then there's fresh air. Just breathe, baby. God's got a
blessing to spare. Yes, I know the process is so much stress, but
it's the progress that feels the best. Cause I came from the
projects straight to success and you're next. So try. They
can't steal your pride, it's inside. Then find it and
keep on grinding, cause in every dark cloud there's a silver
lining. I know.
Rap/hip-hop can be
inpirational or meaningful.
