    GZA is a God (extraordinary person). He should be in the top 10 of all time.

    Nope. His flow became so terrible he can barely be called a rapper.

    Some people are unbelievable. GZA is by far the greatest lyricist ever born. His discography isn't that amazing, but all of his verses (excluding Pro Tools) are classic verses. Pro Tools was mindblowing lyrically, but his flow was bad.

    Top 10 technical lyricist, but not in my top 10 favorite rappers.

    With tracks like Animal Planet, labels, fame, the discography as a group, his first two solo are bangers

    Depends what you look for in an emcee, but lyrically, top 5

    Ghost might be the only Wu member who can legitimately be ranked in the top 10 without controversy.
    i would concur with this

    gza could easily be top a 10 lyricist, but if you're talking top 10 mc's there's just way too many legends out there when gza hasn't had much of a solo career

    He's also the greatest novelist, most deep philosopher, most successful chess player and Mahdi. Simultaneously.
