First lines as rap, Can’t you hear that*

Our love of opening sentences in literature around here at p3 is a matter of record.

But this kind of takes it to the next level: 18 famous literary first lines paired with rap lyrics, accomplished with the help of a rap lyric rhyming site. (Of course there is such a thing! Why would there not be such a thing?)

I feel it doesn't manage to hurt the literature, although I'm not sure it really helps the rap, either. See what you think.  

*Rhyme selected by RapPad from Justin Timberlake's History of Rap 3. You're welcome.
