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...

New Radicals', "You Get What You Give"
The Boasting Lyrics:
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson,
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes, run to your mansions
Come around, we'll kick your ass in
Comments:
Gregg Alexander is boasting here about he thinks he can beat Beck, Hanson, Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson to the top. And then the New Radicals broke up and never released any more material, while the four mentioned continued with success. Swing and a miss!

Bon Jovi's, "Lay Your Hands On Me"
The Boasting Lyrics:
I'm a fighter, I'm a poet, I'm a preacher
I've been to school, oh baby, I've been the teacher
Comments:
Jon Bon Jovi was 25 when this song came out so has he really been all those things?
