A Better Version of Me

Stone Cold Buggin'
Now this rhyme right here has been dedicated,
to all rap fans that said that they hated,
the other MC's whose rhymes deviated,
'cause this is real gold, it's not gold plated.
A few years ago these rhymes were created.
I was real proud and very elated.
It took a long time as I calculated,
but now I look back, I'm glad I waited.
At so many times I was so frustrated,
'cause I couldn't finish up what I initiated.
I got mad and quite agitated,
and I remember rhymes that I had confiscated.
But one day, this girl, she perpetrated.
She was cute and quite educated.
We got married at once, and it was consumated,
but once it hit the books it was ill-fated.
She took me to court, to have it litigated.
A judge and a jury, that's how it operated.
The jury went away, and they deliberated.
Then she took all of my money, had my house renovated.
I felt so poor, and so humiliated,
because of a fight that I instigated,
but I got my money back, and I was jubilated,
'cause the first court decision was never validated.
For weeks and weeks, I just celebrated,
because the jury and judge recapitulated,
and all of my funds were never liquidated.
Yes I won, yes I dominated.
I saw another girl and my heart pulsated.
She looked just like that girl I mated.
Would have been part two of this rhyme that I've stated;
so I'll just go home and read my Sports Illustrated.

This is one of my favorite songs by Young M.C. He is definitely one of the best hip hop lyricists I've heard. Do you know of any other songs that carry the same rhyme throughout? I think that's pretty cool.
