The dying kid is stuck between two places; one is heaven, represented by “the ultimate gates” and the other is the place where he’s spent his life; the corner.

The “mission” of seeing black people have equality still seems impossible, despite how far we have come
Also a reference to the TV series and later on film, Mission Impossible

In 2006 International Astronomical Union (IAU) stated that in order to classify as a planet the celestial body in question must:

1.orbit around the Sun,
2.have sufficient mass to assume hydrostatic equilibrium (a nearly round shape)
3.have “cleared the neighbourhood” around its orbit.

Pluto failed to meet the 3rd condition as it overlaps Neptune’s orbit, and so had its status revoked to a mere “dwarf planet”

"I'm tryna find out where the eggs in the nest at" (The Roots – Walk Alone) | pending

I think P.O.R.N is saying how he’s still searching for that one woman he loves so that he can raise a family. Nest is a common reference to home, with “eggs” being his children.

"Mom want me be doctor, I be rhymin' like pasta" (Joey BADA$$ – Indubitable) | accepted

the way he pronounces the “pa” rhymes with the “sta”, so the word “pasta” is a rhyme in itself

The “tutors who did a lousy job” is a reference to the poor education system. It’s “unfortunate” because if these “intruders” had received a good education they may have ended up in a position where they wouldn’t have to rob and steal. But, “of course”, this is the world we live in, and so dre recognises that he needs to protect him self from the evils of the world (the next line)

"You are now privy to an occasion / You are watchin' a boo..." (Honors English – Highlight Real) | accepted

Honor’s is also trying to say how his music perfectly captures and represents the essence of hip hop. Hip Hop is the structure that facilitated the creation of this music, and like pulling a ‘museum out of paintings’ or ‘camera’s out of pictures’ Honors is pulling hip hop out of this track.

TheRealNickPeterson is right, there are several mistakes in the second verse

"Is I;ll put you in a box if Im P.O.’d" (Honors English – Burn) | accepted

“put you in a box” i.e. put you in a coffin if im Pissed Off, in the same way packages are put into boxes at the Post Office. Amazing wordplay

"Sometimes I wonder who sane, Barack or Saddam" (Honors English – Burn) | accepted

questioning who the real terrorists are, the one’s who the media traditionally paint as the terrorists (Saddam), or President Barack Obama. American foreign policy remains increasingly aggressive under Obama and honors is wondering if american are real terrorists.

In the first verse, I’m pretty sure it’s “criminal’s volume”, not violin. If you watch the video , the line comes in at about 1:05 and you can see that the volume of the ‘criminals’ on the mixer is up high, while the volume of the books, which i assume represents education, is low.

"No jump shot so I'm selling crack" (Big KRIT – If I Fall) | accepted

A reference to Biggie’s “Things Done Changed” in which he describes the lack of opportunities for young men growing up in the ghetto: “the streets is a short stop/
Either you’re slingin' crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot”. KRIT references this line to highlight the lack of opportunities in his own surroundings.
