Default Solaar: Lyrical Chemist

We all know English is a universal language. when we mention best lyricists, we only use Americans (i.e. NY) mc's.

If only most people could comprehend MC Solaar.... this guy's up there w/ the best of the best in Hip Hop

his wordplay is out of this world. he's a great thinker and use his mind to tackle various topics in his music.

if i had to compare him w/ an american mc, i'd have to go w/ the GZA. altho i'm a major wu fan, i'd even say he's even better than GZA.

Any Euro heads up in here? back me up.

Although Solaar's latest album "Mach 6" was a bunch of crap, I have to say that he is probably the legend out of all European solo-Emcees.
5 of his 6 CDs are instant classics, his lyrics have even been awarded by the academy of French language !
As Wu-Disciple already mentioned, his wordplay is extraordinary, his flow has established new standards as well in old-skool as in nu-skool rap.

I think that he cannot be compared to any clan-members, Solaar's unique.
US cats could know him from Guru's jazz-matazz or the remix to Missy's "All in my grill"
Look at my nephew, he jumped at the window just to see you (The Sun - Ghostface, Rza, Raekwon and Slick Rick)

hum yeah he got skillz in term of word play but he very fells off , in france he is not consider as a rapper anymore but "pop", he is on a jet set move... you can compare him to Will Smith in US

I think Gza is way better...
according to me the best french rapper in term of word play is "Oxmo Puccino" !
