Ain't gotta worry 'bout if niggas just pretendin' it's hot
Cuz I can see their hands in the air wavin', heads bobbin'
The Way You Do It by Little Brother

‘Te knows these are legitimate Little Brother fans the way they feel the music. They are mouthing the words, bobbing their heads to the beat, and waving their hands. Uninvolved crowds don’t bring this kind of love.

Thanks for showin' us love and to the top we fin' to take dat shit The Way You Do It by Little Brother

Unfortunately, Little Brother never took it to “the top,” as their debut album never had commercial success despite being quite acclaimed. The following album, The Mistrel Show did have more commercial success, however.

An ill feeling that it brings about
To see niggas mouthin' yo words and you ain't even got a single out

Also, this song would later be released as a single.

Something's Missing by John Mayer

John checks himself on all the things that make people happy, typically. He’s made great money in his career, has people calling him all the time, and of course, John Mayer has quite the résumé when it comes to sleeping with women. It ranges from Jennifer Love Hewitt, to Jessica Simpson, to possibly Taylor Swift. More recently, Katy Perry has been in his boudoir.

And when they call you the answer, you are hardly questioned Uptown by Drake (Ft. Bun B & Lil Wayne)

Nobody is questioning Drake because he is “the answer” to what they want. He could do anything with anyone doubting him.

This isn’t necessarily true, as Drake constantly get skewered for his singing, sweater styles, softness, etc.

Besides it’s not always easy being “the Answer."
Just ask Allen Iverson, who went from being a premier baller to facing some serious struggles.

I ain't recording, Ignant Shit (Freestyle) by Drake (Ft. Lil Wayne)

Referring to the previous line, Wayne has the red dot but he ain’t recording, but he also is playing on the fact that he’s freestyling this verse — it isn’t for recording.

March 28th, 2014

Given the context (the previous four bars which describe, in vivid detail, the fate that will befall snitches) this line is Wayne declaring that he isn’t wearing a wire (i.e. “recording”) and thus, isn’t a snitch.

Dawg, slow down you can't afford to sip Mo' One More For Me by Kanye West (Ft. Mark Spitz)

Playing on the nickname for Moet champagne, Kanye is telling you to take it easy on the bubbly, probably because you can’t afford it.

Chasin' love, all the bittersweet hours lost I'm In It by Kanye West (Ft. Assassin & Justin Vernon)

If you spend all your time chasing skirt, you can’t always be successful. Looking back Kanye remembers the time spent getting it in, but also remembers the time spent just to lead to denial.

Maybe his denial sounds a lot like the threesome question from an earlier song of his.
