I find it hard to compare Canibus and GZA. Canibus is primarily a battle-rapper whereas (imo) GZA's best lyrical displays are in more poetic, structured songs like Animal Planet, Fame etc. Both dope emcee's tho.

GZA >>> canibus

GZA overrated? If anything he is underrated. Most of the people I know say that the Chef is the best Wu member, but Raekwon ain't got shit on GZA or Ghostface.


Yo
Picture bloodbaths and elevator shafts
Like these murderous rhymes tight from genuine craft
Check the print, it's where veterans spark the letterings
Slow moving MC's is waitin for the editin
The liquid soluble that made up the chemistry
A gaseous element, that burned down your ministry
Herbal vapors, and biblical papers
Smokin Exodus, every square yard is plush
Fuck the screw-faced photo sessions facial expression
leaves impressions, try to keep a shark nigga guessin
Give crazy shouts Son here's the outcome
Cut across the semi-gloss rhymes you floss
Shit is outdated, just like neckloads of Sterlings
Suede-fronts, bell-bottoms, and tri-colored Shearlings
I ain't particular, I bang like vehicular homicides
on July 4th in Bed-Stuy
Where money don't grown on trees and there's thievin MC's
Who cut-throat to rake leaves
They can't breathe, blood splash, rushin fast
like runnin rivers, I be that whiskey in your liver

You still think he is overrated. Come on man! He's a genius!

gza by far. canibus has dope lines but i think hes got a lotta of filler. i don't know maybe i just dontlike his style. i think gza is by far greatest lyricist and aesop might b second greatest

Edgar Erebus 01-20-2012 04:33 PM

The greatest lyricist of all time is, IMO, Dante Alighieri.















Oh, you meant rap lyricists? I can't be bothered to rank them as long as Bob Dylan still makes music.
