The Greatest of all time, at least rapper; not the greatest lyricist ever, no but the sum of his parts out totals everyone else who’s ever done it. There’s one thing to just be around forever, but there’s another to be around and still be relevant or respected.

Memorable Bars

Not the last Mafioso I’m a MC cop Make you say, “Go L.L. and do the wop”

Don’t call it a comeback I been here for years Rockin my peers and puttin suckas in fear.

When I’m alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall and in the back of my mind I hear my conscience call

“How Ya Like Me Now?” I’m getting busier I’m double platinum, I’m watching you get dizzier

I want a girl with extensions in her hair Bamboo earrings At least two pair

    “I’m so nice yo, flowin with the maestro, murderin’ and hurtin’ MC’s because I’m nitro” You could go for days quoting LL’s memorable bars. Surprised you didn’t have Boomin System on the singles list. LL is definitely top 10 on any list you put together and in my personal top 5. I still have my “Radio” tape and vinyl I bought back in HS
