Best Rap Verses of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Lord Finesse / Da Graveyard / Verse 3
42 Konfab / Runonsentence / Verse 1

"The end justifies the means// but in the end means nothing if the pen don't underline the underlying theme, undefine by societ-teams// without an iron between the third person observing// never heard it like quiet screams but better word-en for clever persons// to find a meaning behind what seems as letters murderous// combined in death sentences, well deserve it// men had worked with measures to reverse celebrities, still are worth the central purpose to spill..." - Konfab (aka KOndom FABric) is one the most inspired lyricists ever... Not only in the African continent but in the world -

43 Eminem/ Dead Wrong/ Verse 3

He goes hard on this, but Biggie stills the show here

44 Andrè 3000/Aquemini

Why is this number 42? Look it up, it's amazing

45 J Cole / Born Sinner / Verse 1
46 Eminem / Lose Yourself / Verse 1

"This is the best verse of all time, 'Go back lab again' is the best quote from the Verse"

This should be a lot higher, such a good verse

47 Eminem / Renegade / Verse 2 V 1 Comment
48 Kendrick Lamar / The Heart Pt 3 / 1st Verse
49 Inspectah Deck / Guillotine (Swordz) / Verse 1
50 Dr. Dre / Still D.R.E. / Verse 2 V 1 Comment
51 Nas / I Can / Verse 1
52 Golden Shovel / Father / Verse 1
53 Tumi / Dats Wassup / Verse 2
54 Fugees / Family Business / Verse 1
55 Prodigy / Shook Ones Part II / Verse 1

Just an absolutely cone chillingly cold verse from an MC who is known for his violent imagery through a flow and delivery that is sometimes almost devoid of emotion. This is simply one of the greatest verses on one of the greatest Hip-Hop anthems.

56 2pac / Changes / Verse 2

"I made a G today" But you made it in a sleazy way.
Sellin' crack to the kids. "I gotta get paid,"
Well hey, well that's the way it is.

And Tupac's delivery just adds to the impact this has.

57 Nas / Life's a Bitch / Verse 1

Nas's opening 8 bars on this song are the best in rap history and it's not even that close

Nas and AZ were both amazing on this one

58 Eminem/ Infinite/ Verse 1

The lyrical quality of Infinite is unreal

59 Drake / Austin Martin Music / verse 3
60 Eminem / Patiently Waiting / Verse 2

A verse that made battle rappers like Cassidy (underrated) talk about it in interviews.. best verse of the 2000s decade
