Best punchline you've ever came up with

Well, since this site is apparently filled with good rappers,

I figured I ask what is the best line you’ve ever came up with? Whether it be a punchline, inspiration, or a diss.

I don’t rap and I’m not saying this is good but I thought of it in my head once.

“Dreamin of the day when I got all that green paper
Go to UK, got pounds like a fat teenager”

Hopefully Loki will drop some dope lines because we all know how good of a rapper he is

“I fades ‘em all like an indiscriminate stylist
Don’t give a fuck like an end-is-imminent nihilist”

@LucidLemson. Sure.

“I fades ‘em all like an indiscriminate stylist” — “fade” can refer to killing/defeating an opponent (the origin of the term is in LA gang culture, but it adapted in hip-hop slang — see, for example, Jamal’s “Fades 'em All”), and it can also refer to giving some a haircut (a “fade”). So I say “I fades 'em all” (I defeat them all) like an “indiscriminate stylist” — a stylist who does not discriminate would “fade” (give haircuts to) anyone.

Ha, the line seems less cool when it is explained in that much detail. Not sure how much you needed!

“Don’t give a fuck like an end-is-imminent nihlist” = I don’t care like a nihilist who believes the world is about to end (the “end is imminent”). Nihilism is a philosophy that says there is no purpose to life — nothing matters. If nothing matters, then why care? Why “give a fuck”?

The couplet features a seven-syllable rhyme. (1)in-(2)dis-(3)crim-(4)in-(5)ett-(6)style-(7)ist / (1)end-(2)is-(3)imm-(4)in-(5)ett-(6)nyle-(7)ist.

Here is the song:

“Three MJs came to fame
Jackson, Jordan, Mary Jane
I’ll ball like one, sell records like two
Get more green then three then bounce in my coupe”

@efemjay, damn, you’re on some Pharoahe Monch shit with that flow. I’m impressed as fuck.

I barely even rap lately. The last even vaguely clever shit I came up with was while freestyling…

This fat bitch was draggin' me down and knocked me over
So I stole her heart and passed myself off as an organ donor
now this Chinese’s girl’s tryna entice me
kung-pow chickenhead, but I don’t fuckin' eat the light meat

Times are still bad, but I’m immune unlike bacteria
The rhymes are ill like spoon plague or catching ebola

Need to save these notebook lines for actual recording. This is like those people who waste their lyrics to instrumental videos on YouTube.

We should put all these together and just create the greatest song ever.

“What happens when you have a mew two but you
Refuse to leave it like that, so you remove a W
And another, then you got me to, but gramatically
It’s wrong, so you go along and add another, add an O
Like 28, but that makes Meo to, it’s in the wrong place
So you put your palm to your face and take away the T.O
Like the eagles after the year 0'Fo, and add one of the two
W’s you removed earlier, what do you have now? Meow
And that’s the sound you pussy niggas make when I step up in the

It’s hard to tell what it means, but basically it’s wordplay/extended metaphor(s) for comparin' these other niggas to pussies. If I went line by line it’d explain all of the wordplay and everything a lot better.
