    There's a lot of good ones. My favorites probably -

    I feel like this perfectly represents not only 444 but Jay's entire life at this point. Although it's not impressive technically or lyrically speaking it's one of jay's best lines imo.

    Also -

    I think I like this one so much because every time I hear it I imagine Beyonce pouring liquid gold from a golden chalice into her babies mouth

    Whole verse

    Eyes wide shut, barely eatin', tryna get my game on
    Played it too cool, almost like I'm froze, had to turn my flame on
    All the while, watch 'em X me out
    Magazine cover, mothafucka, I ain't tripping

    My flow, senior citizen s---
    And maybe they'll listen to me when they sixty

    Breakin' some bread down, treat it like the Last Supper
    Toast to all the time we were po', but still we had one another

    Hoppin' in, out of shuttles, I'ma be big momma, I'ma get rich momma
    I'm sorry, I ain't got a wife or kids momma, but look what I did momma
    Got a house that I barely can stay in, a car I barely can drive
    I'd be a liar if I said gettin' money didn't make me feel alive

    Hustlin', arguin' about who’s better than I in tweets
    But what does it matter when a new artist come out like every week?
    And the label all on they nutsack, good for them, keep suckin'
    Most rappers'll bend over for you, but me? b----, I'm not for f---in', over
    I'd be the biggest star, they told me
    Signed my name on that line and when I die, that's when it's over
    Movin' on to the set, I was just a talented black kid
    But to them, I looked like a check
    Another five years of slavin' and then it's on to the next

    I was tryna be what I envisioned as a child
    A king ain't a man of God when ain't no church in the wild
    s--- been f----- up 'cause they don't talk about Christ
    Everybody trying to die young but who gon' talk about life?
    I pull that card, good Lord, Confederate flag, s--- so flawed
    They used to fly it like pilots and burn crosses in our yards
    I can't get with ya if you with that whistlin' Dixie they want that old time back

    But n----s got a hundred rounds and automatics so we ain't having that
    I ain't promotin' no violence, it's people out here been wildin'
    So much that you can get gunned down just for being happy and smilin'
    Ain't no hotline worth dialin' to say the world needs help
    We too busy fillin' our needs that we might k--- us ourselves

    I got my gumption from my granny, had a dream about her like last night
    She held me tight and told me, "Little one, everything gon' be alright"
    My mind playin' tricks on me, but I needed that there
    In a world where I feel all alone sometimes I'm needin' her care

    It's hard to share my insecurities so I medicate, I mean meditate
    And pray to God for a second chance, for Heaven's sake
    I'm just waitin' on a sign or two, like what I'ma do
    When my heart get rusty and tired and it ain't shinin' through?
    And I think about death a lot, my father scared of dyin'
    I can relate,
    I call him before every flight, in case I ain't meant for flying
    I can't hold it back, can't control these tears, I mean after all these years
    I'm still the kid writin' poems, too shy to eat in the cafeteria
    I'm two cups in and three shots away
    I don't give a f--- about any of the s--- I didn't have to say
    Lord knows, it's hard to see the truth with your eyes closed
    It's hard to protect your feelin's when you so exposed
    Yeah, I'm so exposed
    I'm so exposed
