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 Kids On The Block's, "Games"
The Boasting Lyrics:
Somebody said somebody wouldn't last too long
Somebody keeps going strong
Somebody said everybody was all up front
Somebody's still talking junk
Comments:
They made it. Even though the critics said they wouldn't be the success that they are these days.

Busted's, "Year 3000"
The Boasting Lyrics:
I took a trip to the year 3000, This song had gone multi-platinum, everybody bought our seventh album, it had outsold Michael Jackson
Comments:
Wow, talk about shameless self-promotion by claiming this song would go multi platinum (It only went single platinum) and claiming to outsell Michael Jackson. Guess what? A seventh album never happened and the two albums they did make didn't even get close to album unit's sold by Jackson.
