    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 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    Shit is outdated, just like neckloads of Sterlings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!

    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.
