    So yeah, my choice also:

    Def gotta be. Between liquid swords, capital punishment and Wu-Tang forever. Everybody's opinion differs but these three are my favorites. Oganized konfusion were dope as fuck. gang Starr...imo never dropped a wack album not to mention guru always came correct with the rhymes. I would incude 36 chambers but imo wu forevers lyric game was waaay more mature n polished up.

    Most lyrical for the 80s but definitely a great album and way ahead of its time. I even dare to say this album changed rhyme

    gza - liquid swords
    big pun - capital punishment
    big l - lifestylez ov da poor & dangerous
    cannibal ox - the cold vein
    nas - illmatic
    pete rock & cl smooth - mecca & the soul brother

    i could go on... way too hard to decide on a single album... also it would depend on how you interpret "most lyrical"

    theres too many to pick one album

    yall left out the Tribe albums

    Gang Starr albums, cant name one thats subpar lyrically

    Blackstar album is ill with the lyrics

    KRS - Return to the Boom Bap

    OC Word.... Life is top of the line

    The Roots dropped some superior lyrics in the 90s and never feel off, i might have to give the nod to Black Thought, cause he simply gets better each album

    everything else has been mentioned and/or forgotten because from 90-2000s there was an overwhelming amount of material to call "top lyrical album"
