My mic is a Magnum.
See me and this chick, we go back like Cro-Magnon.
Man…we did it in the back of your Magnum;
I said, ‘Put them Lifestyles back, give me the Magnums.’

Pharoahe Monch, “Rap Life,” from Diamond D’s The Diam Piece, 2014. More lyrics from Pharoahe Monch…

You better recognize, adjust your bifocals;
Your style is local…I sit on the beach in Acapulco.
I put words together like Peter Jennings,
And skate on motherfuckers like Peggy Fleming.

Diamond D., “The Next Level,” from Tha Alkaholiks’ Coast II Coast, 1995

Funny how things change when you got a liquor in ya:
You’re quicker with the tongue, givin’ me rhythm now.
Block the music and the people out to admire the love,
The nerve of us…impervious to the entire club.
And like marijuana shotguns, let’s blow this joint,
It’s pointless to stay here, so let me anoint.

Pharoahe Monch, “The Light,” Internal Affairs, 1999. More Pharoahe Monch quotes.

Although I hit a pound of herbs, I’m still nice with the verbs.
So fuck what ya heard.

Sadat X, “Show Business,” from A Tribe Called Quest’s The Low End Theory, 1991

I like my pockets fat, not flat.

Showbiz, “Diggin’ in the Crates,” from Showbiz & A.G.’s Soul Clap EP, 1992

I once lost a bill betting on the Red Sox,
…But that’s another topic.

Diamond D., “K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid),” Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop, 1992

We runnin around in thousand-dollar clown suits,
Better get some boots when Lucifer turn your city to Beirut.

Ras Kass, “Soul On Ice (Remix),” 1996

Eat from the Tree of Life and throw away the verbal ham.

Sadat X, “Show Business,” from A Tribe Called Quest’s The Low End Theory, 1991
