Seriously tho... people should really check out some of Sean Price' work. If you like rappers with skills and realistic material. He's your man

And AZ too.

It would be awesome rappers like these got more support from so-called "real" hip hop fans

yes its a shame, Game Theory didn't sell sh!t. Don't worry i mentioned Black Thought as one of top lyrcists in the game. He's so crimally underrated.

I just went to their show at the Gibson last month or so. Such a great live act. You are missing out if you haven't seen them live.

-lyricly i pick 'em apart like ali-

-i create to devastate, deep space blastoff
make you salivate like pets of pavlov
lines like barcodes, but no mark of the beast\-

-David to Goliath
is like me to the mindless-

-im heavy on the mic
can you handle the weight?
you only brave when you get more dusted than homeplate-

-remember rakaa dont throw stones, im throwing statues-
rakaa

-the reason you went platinum has got nothing to do with luck
it just means a million people are stupid as f**k-

-my metaphors are dirty like herpes
but harder to catch
like an escaped convict
i started from scratch-

immortal technique

just a few memorable lines i can muster off the top of my head
