Default Re: Top 5 lyricists in today's hip hop game

everyone has their own genre of lyricism.

nas, papoose for east coast/gangsta

aesop rock for poetic

chino xl for underground (don't know how to categorize them)

cam'ron surprisingly isn't that bad with his use of multi's, he just says ridiculously retarded things sometimes.

others that i can't (and don't feel like) categorizing, eminem, mf doom, immortal technique, akir, sage francis, eyedea, rza, gza, there are way too many to put one over another.. and if "ya boy" meant you, i can guarantee you that i can write a better verse than you in less than an hour than you can in a week.

This might be the worst top 5 lyrcists list ever. you might like them as artists, but to say they are good lyricists is a degrace to all of hip-hop.

If DJ Unk is your no.2 lyricist, i have no words to describe MCs like common and gza.

now he tries to cover up his verbal murder of hip hop as stated before by pointing out the already obvious. and no i wasn't going to "battle" you i'm jus' sayin', i'm a better writer than all the people i personally know

and rebel INS, don't even try arguing with these people. these people define lyricists as what sells the most and what gets the most plays.
