June is Black Music Month which celebrates all of the phenomenal achievements that Black artists have contributed to music. Black folks have innovated a multitude of music genres such as gospel, blues, jazz, rock & roll as well as rap and hip hop.

While the impact that hip hop music has had on the general culture is immense, it's hard to sort through the endless number of lyrical creations to narrow down the most fire verses of all time. Nonetheless, here are a few of the most quote-worthy verses in hip hop history.

"Juicy," Notorious B.I.G.

"No heat, wonder why Christmas missed us
Birthdays was the worst days
Now we sip Champagne when we thirsty
Uh, damn right I like the life I live
'Cause I went from negative to positive"

- Notorious B.I.G.

"Keep Ya Head Up," Tupac Shakur

"And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman (Yeah, yeah)
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?"

- Tupac Shakur

"D.N.A.," Kendrick Lamar

"I got, I got, I got, I got—
Loyalty, got royalty inside my DNA
Cocaine quarter piece, got war and peace inside my DNA
I got power, poison, pain, and joy inside my DNA
I got hustle, though, ambition flow inside my DNA"

- Kendrick Lamar

"Monster," Kanye West Ft. Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Bon Iver

"Pull up in the monster, automobile gangsta
With a bad b*tch that came from Sri Lanka
Yeah, I'm in that Tonka, color of Willy Wonka
You could be the king, but watch the queen conquer"

- Nicki Minaj

"Rapper's Delight," Sugar Hill Gang

"I said a hip-hop, the hippie, the hippie
To the hip, hip-hop and you don't stop the rockin'
To the bang-bang boogie, say up jump the boogie
To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat"

- Wonder Mike

"Izzo (H.O.V.A.)," Jay Z

"H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
For shizzle, my nizzle, used to dribble down in VA
H to the izz-O, V to the izz-A
That's the anthem, getcha damn hands up"

- Jay-Z

"Crush On You (Remix)," Lil' Kim

"Lil Kim, the Queen Bee, so you best take heed
Shall I proceed? (Yes indeed!)
I'ma throw shade if I can't get paid
Blow you up to your girl like the Army grenade
You can slide on my ice like the Escapade
And itchy-gitchy-yaya with the marmalade"

- Lil' Kim

"U.N.I.T.Y.," Queen Latifah

"Now everybody knows there's exceptions to this rule
Now don't be gettin' mad, when we playin', it's cool
But don't you be calling me out my name
I bring wrath to those who disrespect me like a dame"

- Queen Latifah

"C.R.E.A.M.," Wu Tang Clan

"Cash rules everything around me
C.R.E.A.M., get the money
Dollar dollar bill, y'all"

- Method Man

“Int’l Players Anthem (I Choose You),” UGK featuring Outkast -Andre 3000

"So, I typed a text to a girl I used to see
Saying that I chose this cutie pie with whom I wanna be
And I apologize if this message gets you down
Then I CC'ed every girl that I'd see-see 'round town"

- Andre 3000
