Real Lyrics -> Boasts in Song Lyrics -> Index

A lot of rap music features the singer openly boasting. I'm looking for examples of boasts that are unrealistic.

Boasts in Song Lyrics, Index

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

AJR's, "I'm Not Famous"
The Boasting Lyrics:
You've never heard of me
Or the weird shit I do and say
That's my favorite thing
That I'm not famous, no
And I'm never on TV
Throwing up on an LA street
Nobody judges me
Cause I'm not famous, no
Comments:
While AJR might have not been famous when they wrote this song, they're boasting about the fact they're not famous

Tone Loc's, "Funky Cold Medina"
The Boasting Lyrics:
Having some drinks with some no-name chump when they know that i'm the star!
Comments:
What do you have that the "chump" doesn't have that makes you more desirable to women?
