The Contenders: Page 2

21 Eminem/ No Love/ Verse 2

Best rap verse ever. BIf you don't think so, go listen to it right now. I'm black and I like this verse. Dope, dope, dope. Listen to it. He says never before seen rhymes.

The Greatest Rapid Fire Verse of All Time.

Had me at "i'm alive again".

22 Nas / The World is Yours / Verse 1

Something about the flow of these opening lines are perfect

23 Eminem / Rap God / Verse 3

Missing the lyricism, which bumps it down a bit, but bar none the most TECHNICALLY impressive verse for sure - Themusicman

This will be the greatest verse in next 2-3 years

This whole song has very complex flows and rhyme schemes in it, but the lyrics are just corny.

Not even a good song

24 A Tribe Called Quest / Butter / Verse 1

Not even the best verse in that album. Q-Tip's verse in Check the Rhime wipes the floor, or pretty much any of Scenario.

25 Big L / Put it On / Verse 1
26 Eminem / Love the Way You Lie / Verse 3
27 2pac / Keep Ya Head Up / Verse 1
28 AZ / Life's a Bitch / Verse 1

Everything just clicks, from the flow to the lyrics. Masterful

AZ and Nas were both unbelievable on this track

Way too low. Smh to many biased Eminem fans. This is better then all of his verses, the only one that's right there with it is the verse 3 in Stan. Anyways, this should be top 5.

Keepin this schwepervesent street ghetto essence inside us
Cause it provides us with the proper insight to guide us

Now that's how you rhyme.

29 Kanye West / Jesus Walks / Verse 1
30 Nas / Halftime / Verse 1

This is great, but the second verse was better

31 Eminem/ Infinite/ Verse 2

How can this not be at least in the top 5? You clearly were not paying attention to the greatest rhyme scheme ever to be put into music.

32 Jay-Z / Da Graveyard / Verse 4 V 1 Comment
33 Hishaam / All I Do / Verse 1

Timeless piece of inspiration by the boy from Port Elizabeth

Hishaam honzo's finest verse, this verse is hot yho, don't believe me? Listen to it -

34 Jay-Z / Can't Knock the Hustle / Verse 1
35 Killer Mike / Reagan / Verse 2
36 GZA / Liquid Swords / Verse 2
37 R.A. The Rugged Man / Uncommon Valor: A Vietnam Story / Verse 2

First time I heard my jaw dropped. I played it OVER and OVER and OVER again. Should be at least top ten. RA spits crazy and you can't deny the meaning behind the lyrics is great.

R.A. 's verse is by far the greatest of all-time! Anyone who disagrees is obviously brain washed by mainstream trash.

Nothing touches this. If you haven't heard it, drop what you're doing and listen to it.

This is one of the greatest verses in Hip-Hop history.

39 Proverb / Writer's Club / Verse 1

"I write what I like and I like what I write, I like to be right but I don't really right to be like (difference)// I get hype when I right like journalists, but I'm no journalist so I don't write 4 the hype// not saying the hype is not right, but writing won't get you hyped and having the hype doesn't mean you can write// Hype is a right cover up, so that whatever you write might just get you on the cover of Hype..." - Proverb's first 4 lines, otherwise it's a great concept (probably the best I've heard so far in this decade) and it's got a great wordplay/flow to it. This song's a classic -
