which emcee's do you consider to have the best flows??

for one: Mef - he got soooo many flows, he was like my fav when i 1st got into Wu (Deck's my fav now)jus cos he flows over anything and everything! He changes like every two seconds too, lol, so he always keeps me entertained. the only way to describe mef IMO is DOPE, no pun intended here but he is jus like dope. he jus flows if ya get me.

and Esoteric. this guy again can jus flow over anything and everything! basically everything that applys to Mef bout been Dope, apply it to Eso.

Apathy, he can flow to any beat too!!

and BIG L, that guy switches between slow, medium and fast and it never sounds out of place!!

anyone else?

Mef definitely way up there. Buckshot & Masta Ace back in the day had some of the nicest flows. I think Pharoahe got some craaaaaazy ass flows, he goes wild on shit, like "Bring It On", that's the wildest shit I've ever heard.

Tough question. Big,Em,Pun,G Rap and Jay-Z are the first ones that come to mind. Meth is up there,too.

for me i think its between pun and meth. probably meth, cause i only have "capital punishment" so i cant really comment on pun overall. he is ill on that album, that little italy line is insane.

Jay is #1 right now with Ghost coming in second. Those two can rhyme to ANYTHING and make it sound dope.

Kool G Rap's definitely up there.

In Wu alone INS, Ghostface and Method Man all have sick flows.

It's hard to say who's the best... I could listen to Biggie, Big L, Pun, both the guys in Naughty By Nature, AZ and Snoop Dogg (in his Doggystyle days) flow all day as well.

In no order, my top 4;

Rakim (re-invented the way rappers flow, I think he's flawless as a MC)
Jay-Z (most rappers today wouldn't have a flow today if not for this man)
Slick Rick (laid back type flow, gotta love it)
Gift of Gab (such diversity in his flow)

Others who I couldn't leave out are Eminem, AZ, Andre 3000, Method Man, Bun-B, Twista, Gift of Gab, Busta Rhymes, Pharoahe Monch & Ghostface.

word, 2pac has an ill flow, you hardly find any track where you hear him breathing in.....think he's underrated in this cause of his fame.

B.I.G., Big L & Method Man.. But also the underrated D.O.C., he could rap slow, but at the same time, I think his verse on Grand Finale is some of the quickest rapping I have ever heard.. He was a amazing rapper, really fucked up that he got in that crash..
