Which rappers do you think have the best lyrics and are best at rapping them? I mean real rap, not that fake shit like Lil Wayne.

I think some of the best are Immortal Technique, Nas, and Tech N9ne.

I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.

I grew out of that "DUR HURR ROCK IS THE BEST MUSIC EVAAAAR EVERYTHING ELSE IS TRENDY MAINSTREAM BULLSHEEEET, ALL HAIL ANGUS YOUNG'S THOUSAND+ PENTATONIC SOLOS" phase when I was like, 12.

I agree with the choice of Nas...I was pleasantly surprised when I first listened to his song "I Can". It's still my favorite, it has real meaning and importance.

Gotta admit though..I sort of like listening to Gym Class Heroes when I want catchy, lyrically different (from the typical rap) music that's a little different than the norm (though not far from mainstream)."Girlfriend" was overplayed but not so much "Cookie Jar"...but that's probably just me.
A power bigger than the pain.

The Flobots have some good lyrics, even though they may not be considered 'rap' in that sense.

I don't know why everyone hates on Lil Wayne. I mean yeah his stuff is commercial, but he is a clever lyricist- its cheesy, but its so bad its good- like White Lion. It doesn't hurt that the people he gets to do production for him are top notch either.

That said, he's definitely not on of the best lyricist out there- I'd give that honor to RA Scion from Common Market, or Kno and Deacon from CunninLynguists.

I prefer Kweli to Mos Def, but they're both great.


Nas goes without saying. Illmatic alone warrants that.

Nas is great, Del is ****ing insane (especially on Deltron cuts), but I like Immortal Technique less and less when I listen to him. Kool Keith has an awesome spoken word type delivery, as does MF Doom. also Saul Williams for sure.

I do too...now. But before, Mos murdered everyone with his lyrics back in the day.

does anyone here listen to NoNeedz? I think he's very good, not quite sure about best ever, but he's talented for being so young. He has one cd of his own: Feel Good Musik, and has played with High Tide and Clear Conscience. He has a style similar to Atmosphere, but with reggae influences.
