    "Autobiography" should be the preface.

    "Can Anybody Hear Me", "Still I Rise", "I'm The Best", "Fly" and "Dear Old Nicki" most definitely because all of those songs have distinct details of her personal struggles coming up in the rap game.

    the song that actually inspired this thread was her 'YM salute' verse--
    i had forgotten how GREAT it actually was.

    what about 'sweetest girl'?

    Monster - she lyrically outdid one of hip-hop's legends (Jay-z and Kanye West)
    even Kanye said she had the best verse!

    Sweet dreams(remix) - Metaphors and similes were crazy! I believe she outdid Lil Wayne
    in this song as well (another hip hop legend).

    monster, sure--
    i dunno about 'sweet dreams'.

    just pointing out the fact that a song doesn't have to possess in-your-face empowerment to be a good song.

    i think "long time comin'" is underrated.
    as well as her "always love you" verse.
    her verse on "new york minute" remix..
    and the obvious ones that have already been suggested, of course.

    how many are we aimin for?

    I was reciting that verse in my head in Spanish today "Maybe it'll make up for everything I wasnt given" touches me.

    YES! for the NYM verse--
    i don't think lyrically the other songs are up to par though.

    nothing about LTC or ALY really CAPTURES me. :\

    I def think "Sweetest Girl"
    Besides it being my favorite, it's honest straight talk, kinda like her "Blazin" of 2008 in the sense of her "saying what she felt needed to be said"

    i'll agree with 'here i am'--
    but is 'catch me' truly a QUINTESSENTIAL nicki minaj song?

    - "Fly" definitely because some (little) girls with (Big) Dreams don't get that motivation that "Fly" gives out. &n I'm VERY self conident\motiated but even at my moments when I'm not so sure about myself, I can count on that track. It sorta makes me feel like I WILL WIN just like Nicki did.
    - I Love "Dear Old Nicki". When I listen to that song I automatically feel like Nicki is talking DIRECTLY to me &n telling me her pains. It's like she ripped a page out of her Diary &n found way's to make her feelings rhyme. &n the same with "Autobiography"
    - "Envy" &n "Encore" are just great songs, they give me that vibe, that good kinda Vibe, that let's throw a party kinda vibe, THAT LET'S GO START A RIOT KINDA VIBE.!
    - Last but not least "Moment For Life" I don't know what to say about that song but everytime I listen to it I feel Like THE FUCKING KING JR.
    ALL OF THEM GOT ME OVER HERE FEELIN LIKE A LIL KINGETTE
