Meshing both worlds, In My Opinion VAKILL is the best lyricist out there right now and has been for a few years now, EVERYTHING ive heard come out of that dudes mouth has been crazy and all makes sense, not to mention he has a different flow, im not trying to jock him at all its just i listen to the dude alot and his music is thought provoking,

Peace

This is too hard there are just so many good mc's each with their own strenghs and weaknesses that to narrow it down to just one would be an impossible task.

I just like good hip hop, make of that what you will.

Talib Kweli shits on Nas if you ask me. I cant pick a top dog altogether, theres too many good rappers about man.

If i had to i'd go with Talib though

Talib is much more relevant in my eyes mate, i suppose its a matter of opinion, but i find Talibs music much more entertaining, with more of a wow factor if ya know what i mean. He dont waste ink if you know what i mean.

I find it hard to take Nas seriously because he is making an album called Hip Hop is dead, which is a bullshit statement if you ask me, and the type of thing any groupie etc tryna jump on the bandwagon would say.. u know what i mean? To quote Mos Def he is talking about hip hop like its some giant living in the hillside, he is supposed to be hip hop, so if hip hop is dead, so is Nas.

I think Nas is a bitch who just follows trends nowadays

Immortal Technique is the best lyricist. I don't enjoy him most or something, I ain't saying he is the best mc. But he has the best lyrics.

Mainstream: NaS or Eminem

Underground: Krs-1 or Immortal Technique both are great conscious rappers

Canibus, although from 04-05 he wasn't too great. Looks like he's going back to his old self now, though.
Vakill is probably my number 2.

Mainstream-wise, Eminem in his prime, probably.
