"And that’s, B’s up, hoes down" (Game – Red Nation) | accepted

Taken from The Chronic era phrase from Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, G’s up, hoes down. G’s means any gangsters, but Wayne is talking specifically about the bloods.

"Now Blood the fuck up" (Game – Red Nation) | accepted

Similar to “man the fuck up”, since both Wayne and The Game would agree the bloods are the toughest gang.

"All you see is all my rights / All I see is all my wrongs" (Lupe Fiasco – Beautiful Lasers (2 Ways)) | accepted

If a fan is really into Lupe’s music they will try to rationalize why some of his weaker songs or lines were actually great. However, Lupe knows exactly what he was trying to say, and if he knows that he only made a bad point because he had nothing else to say, it haunts him.

"But when it's all said and done I'll be 40 / Before I kno..." (Eminem – Drug Ballad) | accepted

It doesn’t look like Eminem is going to end up with a 40 by the time he’s 40 years old anymore. This song is almost a time capsule of the drug-addict blonde haired Slim Shady, which allows us to compare him to the sobered up Marshall after his rehab. The anger from his drug addict Marshall Mathers LP days are gone mostly, but he seems like he’s in a better place.

"My whole city underwater, some people still floating" (Lil Wayne – Tie My Hands) | accepted

Also a metaphor for the people who are still getting by, but haven’t gotten out of the problem (water) yet, so they are just staying above the surface.

"Some say tragedy's hard to get over / But sometimes that ..." (Lil Wayne – Tie My Hands) | accepted

He is also saying that it is going to be very difficult for the Katrina victims to recover. However, in some cases you can’t get over the disaster, and you just have to move on.

"Cursin' at you playas' worse than Marty Schottenheimer" (Eminem – Just Don't Give a Fuck) | rejected

6 syllables rhymed without dramatic slurring. Eminem just can’t do this anymore.

"But yo, guess who got shot in the dome-piece? / Jerome's ..." (Nas – One Love) | accepted

Immortal Technique also refers to this line in the bonus track with Diabolic on the hidden track with “Dance with the Devil”.

Chemically bomb you, fuck using a chrome piece,
I’m Illmatic, you won’t make it home like Jerome’s niece

"I don't know how to start this shit, yo" (Nas – N.Y. State of Mind) | accepted

If the story is true, Nas said this line before the song started, because it was his first take of his first verse on a studio album. He was just talking to himself trying to get amped up. DJ Premier could barely get everyone to start recording in time, but Nas spit arguably his best verse on the entire album in Illmatic’s first verse.

"Living spree" (Kanye West – Good Life) | accepted

Opposite of a killing spree, where people would get murdered, people are just celebrating life.
