Lil Wayne has so many good ones in his various songs. I like “I’m so high I could eat a star” and “big stacks my pockets on kreatine”

“When they see the boy they hyperventilate, I got em running after me like I’m about to win the race”

“They cannot see me, they are like Stevie”
“Weezy from the Dirty South yea the dirtiest bitch, but I’m clean like a virgin in detergent and shit”
“So sweet – make her wanna lick the wrapper, so I let her lick the rapper”
