The 50 worst rap lyrics of all time: 50-41

Page 3 of 4

47. Lil' Wayne - "Goulish"

"Fuck Pusha T and anybody that love him/His head up his ass, I'mma have to head-butt him"

This is the rhyme that Wayne began his Pusha T diss with, so no matter what he said after, he had already lost. Wordplay for the sake of wordplay is like chewing for the sake of chewing.

46. Notorious B.I.G. - "The Ten Crack Commandments"

"Rule nombre uno"

Big is one of the greatest American rappers of all time, but did you know that he's also one of the greatest Spanglish rappers of all time? Sure, "nombre" means "name," but, come on, this is America. If it sounds Spanish and you know what he's trying to say then, functionally, you're speaking the language.

45. Game - "Dreams"

"It's kinda hard to imagine, like Kanye West coming back from his fatal accident to beatmaking and rapping."

Game is referring to the car accident that nearly killed Kanye years ago, the one he talks about in "Through the Wire." But, apparently, Game doesn't know what fatal means. But wait, they do call Kanye Yeesuz... Maybe Game knows something about resurrection that we don't.
