Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin' with no makeup on
that's when you're the prettiest
I hope that you don't take it wrong

– Drake, "Best I Ever Had"

You so crazy, I think I wanna have your baby

– Salt-N-Pepa, "Whatta Man"

Look at you, unbelievably, brilliant beautiful you
You’re looking deliciously divine darling you really and truly do
The very thought of, got me running at the speed of love
Exploring everything about you from the ground to the God above

– Outkast ft. Cee-Lo Goodie, “Slum Beautiful”

Fantasies can run but they can’t hide
And when I find you I’m gon’ pour all my love inside
I need love

– LL Cool J, “I Need Love”

It’s important we communicate
And tune the fate of this union to the right pitch
I never call you my bitch or even my boo
There’s so much in a name and so much more in you

– Common, “The Light”

Cuz I can tell, my life with you would be delicious
The way you lick your lips and shake your hips got me addicted
I’m sittin’ here hoping that we can find some way to kick it

– 2 Pac, “Can U Get It”

I want to tell the world about you just so they can get jealous
and if you see her 'fore I do tell her I wish that I met her

– Future, "Turn on the Lights"

I was young and I was selfish
I made every woman feel like she was mine and no one else’s
Now you hate me
Stop pretending, stop that frontin’
I can’t take it
Girl don’t treat me like a stranger
Girl you Know I seen you naked
Girl you know that I remember, don’t be a pretender

– Drake, “Furthest Thing”

She gave me butterflies
had her father's light complexion and her mother's eyes
Thunder thighs, I'm trying to make some babies with her
We grew closer, connected at the hip

– Action Bronson, "Love Letter"

Now tell me your inner thoughts and deepest emotions
Next you see ecstasy's explosions

– Eric B. & Rakim, "What's On Your Mind"

You’re like a candy store
And I’m a toddler
You got me wantin’ more and mo-mo-more of
Your love, your love

– Nicki Minaj, “Your Love”

I’m at home or in the coupe or in the office
Or the streets or in the booth, thinking bout you
And, most of the girls that come by are cute
And they try to hollar, but they all on mute

– Lil Wayne, "Receipt"

Since we met it’s been you and I
A tear for a tear, baby eye for an eye
And you know that my heart gon’ cry
If you leave me lonely
Cuz you not just my love you my homie

– Ja Rule ft. Vita, “Put It On Me”

Do you believe me when I tell you, you the one I’m lovin’
Are you mad cuz I’m askin’ you 21 questions
Are you my soul mate? Cuz if so, girl you a blessing

– 50 Cent, “21 Questions”

Hey, being with you is a top priority
Ain’t no need to question the authority
Chairman of the board, the chief of affections
You got mine’s to swing in your direction

– A Tribe Called Quest, “Bonita Applebum”

But the smile that she shows makes me a go-getter
I haven’t gone as far as asking if I could get with her
I just play it by ear and hope she gets the picture
I’m shooting for her heart, got my finger on the trigger
She could be my broad, and I could be her n****

– The Pharcyde, “Passin’ Me By”

Put down your bags love
I know in the past love
Has been sort of hard on you
But I see the God in you
I just want to nurture it
Though this love may hurt a bit

– Common ft. Mary J. Blige, “Come Close”

Precious times, hoping they won’t end
Tell you mother ‘bout your lover
Also your best friend
Ya mighty proud while you’re holding her hand

– Slick Rick, “Teenage Love”

King meets queen, then the puppy love thing
Together dream about that crib with the Goodyear swing

– Outkast, "Ms. Jackson"

It’s your eye contact, that be getting me aroused
When you show me your mind, it make me wanna show you mines
Reflecting my light, when it shines, just takin’ our time
Before the night’s through, we could get physical too
I ain’t tryin’ to say I don’t wanna fuck, cuz I do
But for me boo, makin’ love is just as much mental
I like to know what I’m gettin’ into

– Dead Prez, “Mind Sex”

I got a Love Jones for your body and your skin tone
five minutes alone I'm already on the bone
Plus I love the fact you got a mind of your own
no need to shop around you got the good stuff at home

– Method Man and Mary J. Blige, "You're All I Need"

  1. WHERE WAS THIS LIST 8 MONTHS AGO!? Our tables had names instead of numbers. The names were displayed as part of a quote, with the table name bold and listed again on top of the cards. I wanted to do ALL hip hop love quotes but couldn't find enough! This is amazing!!!

  2. This is HILARIOUS!! I love this.
    I've been attempting to figure out wedding vows for a while, and I feel like I've gotten NOWHERE.
