View Poll Results: Who do you think is the most gifted lyricly ??
- 103. You may not vote on this poll
Ghost Face Killah
One Be Lo
R.A. the Rugged Man
Royce da 5`9"
Jay-Z takes this hands down, nobody is even touching him impact wise OR skill wise; three definite classics (Blueprint, Black Album, American Gangster) and a host of other bangers he rolled out definitley puts him as number one.
Eminem comes in at second just for his impact alone, and of course for all the dope music he put out 2000-2003 and Recovery.
I'm gonna put Ghost as third for his consistency.
At the end of the day, it's about the music. When I listen to hip hop, lyrics are of 15% importance to me, the rest is solely in the music. Remember, any idiot can make words rhyme.

But this thread is all about lyricism. Read the title "Who do you think is the most gifted lyricly ??".
Black Tought should be here btw. My favorite after One Be Lo and Eminem.

^co-sign. fucked up by not having luda on the poll. he was running the first 5 years of the decade. still had good material in the second half but it wasnt as strong as his first 5 year run.
luda is good...... yet his music (& flow) is more of a party mode, its realy not hard, hooks left right and center - his material gets a laugh but when do you hear a luda bar and go "holy shit - did he just say that ?"
you look at people like bus and tech, ghost or priest and you know they are smart people and are masters of their craft. i like luda dont put it past me, i have most OF HIS CD'S, imagine that - but as a lyrical KING i would say tha majority of this forum would not hold him in the likes of even M&M
^that's your opinion. me personally i believe luda is up there with the best. just cause he raps about partying doesnt mean he cant be intricate about it. he's always been clever. if you don't consider luda to be a lyrical king then you can't say redman is a lyrical king because they're one in the same. luda is the redman of the south. alot of weed talk, sex talk and shit talking.
so you call luda a smart man and a master of the mic ? MASTER - M.A.S.T.E.R ?
link me a luda song that you think is a lryical work of art. please - and im not being a smart arse here i wanna judge it, i wont post a comment i just want to know what you think is gold.
co sign on luda!! dude is a beast on the mic!!
