Is rap poetry? What do you think of this verse by Jay-Z? Do you think it's in iambic?
Who wanna bet us that we don't touch lettuce
Stack cheddars forever
Live treacherous, all the et ceteras
To the death of us: me and my confidants, we shine
You feel the ambiance, y'all niggas just rhyme
By the ounce, dough accumulates like snow
We don't just shine, we illuminate the whole show, you feel me?
Factions from the other side would love to kill me
Spill 3 quarts of my blood into the street
Let alone the heat
Fuck em, they hate a nigga loving this life
In all possible ways, know the Feds is buggin my life
Hospital dazed, reflecting when my man laid up
On the uptown high block he got his side sprayed up
I saw his life slipping, this is a minor setback
Yo, still in all we living, just dream about the get-back
That made him smile, though his eyes said "pray for me"
I'll do you one better and slay these niggas faithfully
Murder is a tough thing to digest, it's a slow process
And I ain't got nothing but time
I had near brushes, not to mention
3 shots close range, never touched me, divine intervention
Can't stop I, from drinking Mai-Tai's, with Ty-Ty
Down in Nevada, ha ha, Poppa, word life
I dabbled in crazy weight
Without rap, I was crazy straight
Partna, I'm still spending money from '88

You know what, /lit/? I'm tired of being a nobody. I'm tired of being the friendless, jobless, loveless, talentless loser living in his parent's basement. and instead of bitching about it in the endless
>tfw no gf
threads, I'm gonna get off my ass and do something about it. I'm gonna make myself a better person starting today, and I'm gonna start with the thing I know how to do best: Read.
So, /lit/, can you point be at books, classic books, new books, whatever, that can help me on my way to becoming a better me?
Pic related, it's the first book I've grabbed on this quest. Just finished the bit about how remembering somebody's first name has a powerful impact.
