that's probably why
That's why I can't take these lists seriously, I just think they're so bad it's funny. AZ is not the most underrated lyricist. AZ is way more well known than Gift Of Gab and Gift Of Gab absolutely destroys AZ plus 99,9% of the rest of the competition lyrically. AZ is not even underrated in my book.
