Rap quotes by David Mitchell
#26. Then one of them asked why Japanese kids try to ape American kids? The clothes, the rap music, the skateboards, the hair. I wanted to say that it's not America they're aping, it's the Japan of their parents that they're rejecting. And since there's no home-grown counter culture, they just take hold of the nearest one to hand, which happens to be American. But it's not American culture exploiting us. It's us exploiting it. #Quote by David Mitchell

Matter of fact, bring out the girls and let's have a mud fight. #Quote by GZA
Rap quotes by Diplo

Rap quotes by Jay-Z
#58. The story of the rapper and the story of the hustler are like rap itself, two kinds of rhythm working together, having a conversation with each other, doing more together than they could do apart. It's been said that the thing that makes rap special, that makes it different both from pop music and from written poetry, is that it's built around two kinds of rhythm. The first kind of rhythm is the meter. In poetry, the meter is abstract, but in rap, the meter is something you literally hear: it's the beat. The beat in a song never stops, it never varies. No matter what other sounds are on the track, even if it's a Timbaland production with all kinds of offbeat fills and electronics, a rap song is usually built bar by bar, four-beat measure by four-beat measure. It's like time itself, ticking off relentlessly in a rhythm that never varies and never stops.

When you think about it like that, you realize the beat is everywhere, you just have to tap into it. You can bang it out on a project wall or an 808 drum machine or just use your hands. You can beatbox it with your mouth. But the beat is only one half of a rap song's rhythm. The other is the flow. When a rapper jumps on a beat, he adds his own rhythm. Sometimes you stay in the pocket of the beat and just let the rhymes land on the square so that the beat and flow become one. But sometimes the flow cops up the beat, breaks the beat into smaller units, forces in multiple syllables and repeated sounds and internal rhyme #Quote by Jay-Z
Rap quotes by Biz Markie
#59. Remember when friends was friends, and LL had a Benz?
And cell phones and beepers was the new trends?
When Koch was the Mayor and Reagan was the Pres? #Quote by Biz Markie
Rap quotes by Steve Blake
#60. I have periods where I listen to regular rap, Jay-Z, Eminem and Lil Wayne. The next day I might have some Christian alternative music. The next day I have on some dance music. It all varies what I listen to. #Quote by Steve Blake
Rap quotes by Rebel Wilson

The food is contaminated, the water got lead in it.

Guilty as charged if intellect is a crime. #Quote by Pharoahe Monch

"She wants to let me know she doesn't care that I've apples in here.No, doesn't matter a bit to her." He looped the line around the fence and took an apple and his knife from his pocket. Idly he cut it in half. "Maybe I'll just offer this token to this other pretty lady here."
He held out the apple to Keeley, and Betty gave him a solid rap with her head that rammed him into the fence. "Now she wants my attention. Would you like some of this then?"
He shifted, held the apple out. Betty nipped it from his palm with dignified delicacy. "She loves me."
"She loves your apples," Keeley commented.
"Oh,it's not just that. See here." Before Keeley could evade-could think to-he cupped a hand at the back of her neck, pulled her close and rubbed his lips provocatively over hers.
Betty huffed out a breath and butted him.
"You see?" Brian let his teeth graze lightly before he released Keeley. "Jealous.She doesn't care to have me give affection to another woman."
"Next time kiss her and save yourself a bruise."
"It was worth it.On both counts."
"Horses are more easily charmed than women, Donnelly." She plucked the apple out of his hand, bit in. "I just like your apples," she told him, and strolled away.
"That one's as contrary as you are." He nuzzled Betty's cheek as he watched Keeley walk to her stables. "What is it that makes me find c #Quote by Nora Roberts

#100. Back as kids we used to kiss when we played truth or dare,
Now she's more sophisticated, highly edu-ma-cated
Not at all over-rated ... I think I need a prayer
To get in her boots, and it looks rather dry,

Although she's crazy steppin', I'll try to stop her stride,
'Cause I won't have no more of this passin' me by. #Quote by Slimkid3

#127. My raps are a decision, rabble rousing, spiritual, like gospel music. I don't want to dance. We have so many things to deal with, we need to talk straight up and down. #Quote by Tupac Shakur

Rap quotes by KRS-One
#131. Are you tired of lyrical liars, passing fliers,
Wannabe MC's, but really good triers,
Tripping over mic cords, getting you bored,
A total fraud, this kind of thing I can't afford! #Quote by KRS-One
Rap quotes by Andy Milonakis

Rap quotes by Jay-Z

Rap quotes by Donald Glover
#136. You started rapping when you wasn't good at basketball. I started rapping because I needed Adderall. #Quote by Donald Glover
Rap quotes by Kate McGahan
#137. Death gets a bad rap. People think that euthanasia is putting their pets "down" when it really is lifting us up. In the first moment, when we come back to earth, we remember the comfort of the Heaven we came from and this is why we cry when we are born. When we are born in Heaven we come in laughing not crying! In birth we have the passage and then the pain. In death we have the pain and then the passage. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Rap quotes by Talib Kweli
#138. Do the math: You never settle for less than the whole if you knew the half. #Quote by Talib Kweli
Rap quotes by Earl Sweatshirt
#139. I think rap music is rap music. I mean, are there heavy writing aspects of it? Absolutely. In a sense, is it poetry? Yeah. I've heard that so much, growing up in a house with poetry. But I think people like to use that as a shortcut for who's good and who's not. It's like the word 'lyrical' - 'lyrical' is the worst word in the entire world. #Quote by Earl Sweatshirt
Rap quotes by Charlie Benante
#140. We loved that form of music. We're all huge rap fans, so we just incorporated it. #Quote by Charlie Benante
Rap quotes by Xzibit
#141. Picture yourself crushin' Xzibit with your tough talk?
That's like Christopher Reeve doing the crip walk. #Quote by Xzibit
Rap quotes by H. Rap Brown
#142. But black people fall for that same argument, and they go around talking about law breakers. We did not make the laws in this country. We are neither morally nor legally confined to those laws. Those laws that keep them up, keep us down. #Quote by H. Rap Brown
Rap quotes by Willie Nelson
#143. Rather than trying to put an end to Eminem or some other rapper, politicians should think about why they're rapping. It's easier to try to censor some kid who's swearing about poverty than it is to stop the poverty. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Rap quotes by Drake
#144. There were people who incorporated melody before me, but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing. #Quote by Drake
Rap quotes by Daphne Guinness

Rap quotes by J. Cole
#146. I pay attention to lyrics and I know what rap fans care about. I try to write for the average listener and I'm conscious of the mainstream without selling out. #Quote by J. Cole

Rap quotes by MURS
#150. I don't see the world as you see it.
I see it as a game, and my aim is to complete it.
What you live for is what you die for:
To make a little name, grab some fame and the high score. #Quote by MURS
Rap quotes by Ab-Soul
#151. I say 'cuz' around Bloods, and I say 'blood' around Crips ... I'm twisted.
Got Mary, got Lucy, got Molly: that's wifey, girlfriend and mistress. #Quote by Ab-Soul

Rap quotes by Assata Shakur
#156. The attitudes of many police organizations were extremely negative to the prospect of Rap, and many officials weren't afraid to say that they were against it. To them, Rappers were just criminals waiting to get caught. #Quote by Assata Shakur
Rap quotes by Jay-Z
#157. You could name practically any problem in the hood and there'd be a rap song for you. #Quote by Jay-Z
Rap quotes by Jay-Z

Rap quotes by Simone Elkeles
#159. I'm standing in front of Enrique's Auto Body, doing deep-breathing exercises to keep from being nervous. Enrique's Camry is nowhere in sight, so I know Alex is alone.
I'm going to seduce Alex.
If what I'm wearing doesn't capture his attention, nothing will. I'm giving this my all…bringing out all the artillery. I rap on the door, then close my eyes tight and pray this goes as planned.
I open my long, silver satin jacket and the cool night air rushes onto my exposed skin. When the creak of the door alerts me to Alex's presence, I slowly open my eyes. But it's not Alex's black eyes staring at my scantily clad body. It's Enrique--who's staring at my pink lace bra and pom-pom skirt as if he's won the lottery.
Ripped with embarrassment, I wrap my coat around myself. If I could wrap it around twice, I would.
"Uh, Alex," Enrique laughs. "There's a trick-or-treater here to see you."
My face is probably beet red, but I'm determined to see this through. I'm here to show Alex I'm not going to desert him.
"Who is it?" comes Alex's voice from somewhere inside the garage.
"I was just leavin'," Enrique says, slipping past me. "Tell Alex to lock up. Adiós."
Enrique walks across the darkened street, humming to himself.
"Yo, Enrique. ¿Quién está ahi?" Alex's voice fades when he reaches the front of the shop. He looks at me with contemp. "Need directions or your car fixed."
"None of the above," I say.

Rap quotes by Afrika Bambaataa
#162. I don't care if it's rap, metal, whatever. You still should play Beatles records mixed with Limp Bizkit mixed with Foghat mixed with Creedence Clearwater Revival, stuff like that. #Quote by Afrika Bambaataa
Rap quotes by Big L
#163. I'm gettin' stacks while you askin' people, 'Do you want some fries with that?' #Quote by Big L
Rap quotes by Jam Master Jay
#164. Back in the day, if someone said that hip hop and rap was a fad, that was a joke to me because they just didn't know what they were talking about. In reality, there were so many people who didn't know what they were talking about it. #Quote by Jam Master Jay
Rap quotes by Pimp C
#165. I wanna live like Arnold, Willis and Mr. Drummond ...

Rap quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#170. As a general observation, I think our high school and college-age students are wonderful, that they're striving collectively, I think, to be as fine a generation of young people as we have ever had in this Church. But even as I say that, I am quick to acknowledge--and I don't want to minimize that compliment, but I am quick to acknowledge what you already know--that exceptions to that rule are too many and often far too serious. When our youth sin now, they can do so in such flagrantly offensive ways with ever more serious consequences in their lives. That is the world we are in and it is, by scriptural definition, a world that is getting progressively more wicked.

So over time we will continue to see a steady deterioration of what is acceptable in movies, on television, in pop music (which, in the case of rap lyrics, isn't even music at all), and, perhaps in our most dangerous contemporary foe, abuse of the Internet. I have learned what you have learned--that the door to permissiveness, the door to promiscuity and lewdness, swings only one way. It only opens farther and farther; it never swings back. Individuals can choose to close it, but it is quite certain, historically speaking, that public appetite and public policy will never close it. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland

Rap quotes by Action Bronson
#173. My main influence is Kool G Rap and Cam'ron, pretty much. If you were to mix those two people up, I wish that would be me ... This is my voice. I sound like nobody; I sound like me. #Quote by Action Bronson
Rap quotes by Lord Finesse
#174. What's when you rap and don't appreciate the art?
What's when you sell out just to get a start?
What's when you make bullshit just for the charts?
What's when you rap, but it's not from the heart?
What's when you're hardcore, then you turn pop?
When you steal ideas to get props?
When you sell out to be on top?
What's when you front like you're hard, but you're not?
That's a gimmick. #Quote by Lord Finesse
Rap quotes by MF Grimm
#175. Food for thought, eat my words with your mind:
Emcees are grapes, and grapes are crushed to wine. #Quote by MF Grimm
Rap quotes by Rita Dove
#176. Rap is only one end of a whole spectrum of verbal play and virtuosity. Rap is geared for aural pleasure. #Quote by Rita Dove
Rap quotes by Macklemore
#177. I think people are enticed by indie rap and every time you have a group going against the grain, they're gonna be like, 'Wow, you did it yourself in 2012, that's impressive - how did you do it? What're you doing that's different? And how can I be a part of it?' #Quote by Macklemore
Rap quotes by Snoop Dogg

Rap quotes by Russell Simmons
#179. If you want to say something profound, writing from your heartbeat is different than writing from the loud voices you get from music. If they're rapping from noise, it's about robbing people. It's that simple. #Quote by Russell Simmons

Rap quotes by Luke Bryan

Rap quotes by Gina Greenlee
#182. Boredom has a bad rap. Its true character reveals you are deep inside your comfort zone. Boredom is a docent beckoning toward the edges of a labyrinth. #Quote by Gina Greenlee
Rap quotes by KRS-One
#183. Rap is like a set-up ... a lot of games,
A lot of suckers with colorful names.
'I'm so-and-so,' 'I'm this, I'm that.'
But they all just wick-wick-wack. #Quote by KRS-One
Rap quotes by Action Bronson
#184. New York was at the forefront of rap, so because of all the great people who have gone before me, being a rapper from Queens, I have to live up to those standards. I'm basically just a regular guy who says what he feels and likes to joke. I like long walks on the beach ... and I love rap. #Quote by Action Bronson

I still haven't figured out my own personal vibe.. it was sort of Nora Jones then sort of electronic.. then country.. it is very hard to make it in the music industry so we shall see if I ever find the time to finish it! #Quote by Amy Weber
Rap quotes by Donald Glover
#192. There are some rappers out there that I listen to, that I'm like: "You are really good but you could be like the Michael Jordan of rap if you applied yourself." There's a lot of people who are better at basketball than Michael Jordan, but Michael Jordan just wanted to be Michael Jordan, more. #Quote by Donald Glover
Rap quotes by Snoop Dogg
#193. When I make the music that I make, when it comes to reggae music, I engulf the whole spirit of it all. It's just like when I do rap music or whatever style of music I do, I have to engulf the character I do and bring that to life. #Quote by Snoop Dogg

Rap quotes by Termanology
#195. Life is like a box of chocolates, you fill your body with toxins,
And amoxicillin and penicillin to cure your illness.
But in realness? These medical companies will get you monthly
Prescribing me pills that make me ill, just to comfort me. #Quote by Termanology
Rap quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#196. I'm calling for all responsible Americans to fight back and punish Pepsi for using a man who degrades women, who encourages substance abuse, and does all the things that hurt particularly the poor in our society. I'm calling for all Americans to say, hey Pepsi, I'm not drinking your stuff. You want to hang around with Ludacris (a rap singer that Pepsi planned to use for advertising), you do that, I'm not hanging around with you. Am I wrong to do that? #Quote by Bill O'Reilly
