9 Rap Songs with the Best “Time” Lyrics

We must confess, we fancy ourselves some rap enthusiasts (in between listening to k-pop and the soundtrack to Twilight). True, ask Ray, Winky’s husband and Head of Marketing, and he might say his favorite rapper is Soulja Boy, but the rest of us appreciate a smooth flow and bangin’ beat every now and again. We especially go crazy over rap songs that incorporate “time” in the lyrics. We are after all, a watch design company! I’ve scoured our epic rap collection to compile a list of the best rap lyrics dealing with time. Because you know, if time was money, we’d have a milli, a milli, a milli, a milli….
If this doesn't give us street cred, we don't know what will...
1.  Drake- Fancy
“Better late than never, but never late is better/ they tell me time is money, well we’ll spend it together.”

2.  J. Cole- Mr. Nice Watch
“They say time is money but really it’s not/ if we ever go broke girl, then time is all we got” 

3.  Joe Budden- Time Flies
“Look what time does, need a reality check/It’ll remind us, you can’t run from it, it’ll always find us”

4.  Kanye West- Not Enough Time
“Not enough time in one lifetime/ to love you like you deserve”

5.  Lupe Fiasco- Gold Watch
“Got my, gold watch and my, gold chain/ with my fancy car and my diamond ring”

6.  Timbaland- Time
“She’s too invested in the hours that pass her by/ I’d pay attention if I thought it was worth the time”

7.  The Roots- One Time
“I was always late for the bus/ Just once can I be on time/ Then I started to think what’s the rush/ Who wants to be on time"

8.  French Montana- Don’t Waste My Time
“Tell ‘em, don’t waste my time (nah nah nah)”

9.  Fabolous- My Time
“Go hard today/ can’t worry about the past cause that yesterday/I’mma put it on the line cause it’s my time/ hey, hey, hey, hey/ Gotta stay on my grind cause it’s my time

We hope this list inspires you all to start rhyming like Dr. Seuss and write your own rap song. Because in the words of Fabolous, “So ya’ll better check your wrist piece, cause IT'S TIME to make history”.
