What are some incredible self-love hip-hop anthems?

I want to collect hip-hop tracks where the message is "This MC is an incredible person and you should listen to what they're saying, doofus." I want the high-energy high-ego stuff.

Some people hate the braggadocio of hip-hop. I love it. When I listen to Kanye West's "Glory", I feel glorious. When I listen to Jay-Z's "Public Service Announcement," I feel like I have a life worthy of public record. When I hear Azaelia Banks' "Fuck Up The Fun" (which if you haven't had the pleasure of hearing please get on that right now
), I feel totally ready to arrest the forces of evil.
So what are some other amazing hip-hop tracks where the point is basically "I'm awesome?" Narrative style doesn't matter -- it could be as nonsensical as MF Doom or as cinematic as Biggie. What matters is ego.
