Hip-Hop is a bit like wrestling. Not in the sense that it’s fake, but, as is the case with wrestling, we buy into these larger than life personalities who talk lots and lots of shit – most of which makes no actual sense when you break it down. Of course, rap braggadocio isn’t meant to be taken literally or at face value, it’s about swag, confidence, persona. And it’s largely hilarious when you take a minute to really think about what they’re saying.Here’s a look at a 7 of the biggest shit-talkers in hip-hop and some of their most outrageous, braggadocious lines.

Artist: Diddy

‘I got a skyscraper, it’s a hell of a view/Got me closer to God, angel wings on the coupe’ (‘Another One’)

‘Don’t worry if I write rhymes/I write checks’ (‘Bad Boy For Life’)

‘I got my billions up, fuckin’ with them White folks/Now I don’t give a fuck, ’cause I’m richer than them White folks… I don’t mess with fake ho’s/All I fuck is J. Lo’s” (‘O Let’s Do It Remix’)

‘My repertoir is menage a trois and exotic cars/Chillin with the hottest stars… My aim is winning/Got Asian women/That’ll change my linen after I done blazed and hit ’em.’ (‘D.I.D.D.Y.’)
