    well this thread was a wash cuz people chose to ignore the question state of ther reason for rakim being better other then the criteria that was asked.

    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    that is a loaded question.

    why?
    cause they are two different types of emcees...

    In My Opinion

    I love em both but personally I voted for Rakim cause he is truly the GOAT

    why?
    cause the God truly has you painting pictures with his words, there are some of his lyrics that had triple meanings in them, also alot of times you GOTTA listen to Rakim's lyrics more than once to get thge true meaning.

    GZA is nice but he sometimes need others on a track for you to "look" at him as being ill...

    Rakim been doin it solo for his entire career.

    I would put any of Rakim's Lp's up against GZA's

    KRS-One is better than both of them, rakim and GZA are both dope but KRS comes through on top, but for arguments sake, rakim slight ahead
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.
