Top Ten Best Hip Hop Lyricists
The Contenders: Page 2XW
CuDi's mixtapes and and first two albums are dope; Kid Named CuDi and Man on the Moon Mixtape, and Man on the Moon: End of Day + Man on the Moon: The Legend of Mr. Rager. He is one of the better lyricists of our time if you really take the time to listen to him.
You must be an idiot if you listen to Cudi but don't think he makes the best lyrics. It doesn't matter if other rappers rap faster than him, or other like that, listen to his songs like: Soundtrack to My Life, Mr. Rager, Cudi Zone, Day N Nite... The list goes on!
U SEE NOT A LOT OF GOOD ARTIST COME OUT OF CLEVELAND, KID CUDI HAS SUM OF THE MOST BEST LYRICS 2 LOOK UP 2.
"known for his complex delivery, internal and multi-syllabic rhyme schemes, " My God!
Listen to born sinner let the new legends inV2 Comments
All I can say to his lyrics: they are the bomb. You do not often see someone rhyming through a whole song and keeping up his flow like Big L.
The king of punchlines should be in the top 5V1 Comment
"The best female MC who sings and raps, nobody does it like her"
He's the best, listen to "look what you've done"V1 Comment
His work on MADVILLAINNY is insane. He raps his butt off track after track. Rhinestone Cowboy, Figaro, Accordion, All Caps, Fancy Clown, Strange Ways, and Great Day are all excellent examples of his lyrical capabilities. The ONLY three contenders that can even compete are Rakim, Nas, and Eminem.
The most underrated lyricist ever. How he is not in top 10 is beyond me. Just listen to "Figaro".
He's very underground, best lyricist you'll listen toV1 Comment
Best lyricist of all time minus em Royce is so underrated it's unbelievable
Better than most useless rappers, very consistent with his music so he's got to be up there with Eminem, kendrick Lamar and j Cole
Most underrated rapper in the game. He has amazing lyrics (listen to Bar Exam 1, 2 and 3), PRhyme (with Preemo) and the rest of his studio work is always lyrically on point oh yeah how could I forget his mixtapes with slaughterhouse. Oh yeah err bad meets evil as well (old and new)
P.S why is dre on this he has ghostwriters (one of them being royce himself) but still people like Lil Wayne and meek mill above royce.
"Crazy unique flow and hair; like he said, lyrical lava"
Mashed Eminem up into little pieces when they had beef and can ruin his career if they have beef againV1 Comment
He rapped the alphabet and made all words connect with that alone makes him a great lyricist.
A true lyrical genius, isn't that what ye are looking for. Can out rap most of todays rappers.
He was one of the best, he had one of the greatest flows/delivery in history. He had some dope lyrics.
GAME QUOTES IN HIS NEW SONG BETTER DAYS OFF RED ALBUM, FIRST BAR OF FIRST VERSE, 1ST THING I WANNA DO IS SAY WAT UP 2 T.I. KING OF THE SOUTH, NOW EVERYBODY SEE WHY. HE IS TRULY ONE OF THEE MOST RESPECTED LYRICIST.
The best of the lyrics of the TI is that he has been choosing the words accurately and wisely, so TI continue manuvering in the universe of HIPHOP.
One of the most talented rappers today
He speaks truth but his word play is very generic. He just doesn't ryme cause the words don't flow that well
Doesn't even write most of his lyrics or music
