"With a Glock just as strong as me / Totin guns just as lo..." (The Notorious B.I.G. – Me & My Bitch) | pending

By the way, a bop was known as the swagger put into your step, back then if you had a strong bop it meant you wasn’t scared of nothing. This was a trend in most hoods at this time. (i.e. “Kobe walkin' with a bop and my hat turned back”-Nas:Represent)

"Vanish, living in the eye of the storm" (Capital STEEZ – Chicago) | pending

I believe he says “fearless not vanish.. But I may be mistaken.

"With a Glock just as strong as me / Totin guns just as lo..." (The Notorious B.I.G. – Me & My Bitch) | pending

He says with a ‘bop’ just as strong as me, not glock

"Unless we takin long walks on the beach" (Capital STEEZ – King Steelo) | accepted

Also refers to the previous line about keeping a ‘bitch’ on a leash. A bitch is a female dog, and some owners enjoy taking their dogs on walks on the beach.

"She had a appeal but the pill had her slipping" (Capital STEEZ – King Steelo) | rejected

Also people in animated cartoons would slip on banana peels, so it could also be in reference to slipping on a peel

Notice the word play… Tail = Teal and Blew Green = Blue Green

"Cause even though I am and get round of applauses / I’m i..." (Tyler The Creator – Awkward) | rejected

I just believe if it is a no coincidence that he said ‘chance’ in a way that sounded like ‘chants’, and without the ‘a’ then he is a genius. I do believe it is no coincidence because he could’ve added the ‘a'to fit the flow somehow, and it goes with the previous line because usually applauses are followed by chants of some sort by a crowd.

"I'm lower than the pavement" (Joey BADA$$ – 20 Miles Freestyle) | accepted

Basically he is a deep MC.

"Cause even though I am and get round of applauses / I’m i..." (Tyler The Creator – Awkward) | accepted

Also notice the wordplay between the word ‘chance’ and ‘chants'to go with the previous line.
