Most Lyrical Rap Song

The song whose lyrics, were terrifically done and great to listen to.

The Top TenXW

1Lose Yourself - Eminem

A lot of people believe Eminem is overrated, but they often admit that this is a great song. I personally like his later music as well, but people for some reason tend to go all hipster on it and talk about how stuff before 2005 is so much better, so here you have it, the greatest rap song off all time.

Best Rap song ever. First rap song to win an Oscar award and it also won grammy awards for best solo performance and for best song.


Best rap song ever

2N.Y. State of Mind - Nas

Holdin' an M-16, see with the pen I'm extreme
Now, bullet holes left in my peep holes
I'm suited up with street clothes
Hand me A.9 and I'll defeat foes
Y'all know my steelo
With or without the airplay

Nas is the Greatest Rapper of All Time, I don't know why, but when I listen to Nas, I feel that everyone other rapper is just massively overrated and that the people who think those rappers are the best don't know rap and are just biased...

Eminem is one of the best but he's mad overrated. A lot of stuff he put out after his first three albums were trash. COUGH COUGH ENCORE AND RELAPSE. Nas is the king when it come to lyrics. NY STATE OF MIND over lose yourself anyday

3Dance With the Devil - Immortal Technique

Tells a great story, amazing putting the words so brilliantly together like this - roblist

It's in my opinion the best story to be told in a song and it's the lyrics that paint this picture in your head.

Deep song about life in poverty with a spiritual twist to it.

I get shivers every time I listen to this

5Writer's Club - Proverb

Great wordplay, flow and concept... And also truelly lyricised... His best track and possibly his third most lyrical (after "Heartbeat" and "1st, 2nd and 3rd") -

6Heart Beat - Proverb
7Stan - Eminem

A song with great emotion and emphasises on day to day struggles

Why is Juicy even on this list. That's a happy song...

Tupac is the best, no boubt, but he could never write a song as lyrical as this. Most lyrical rap song of all time.

8Juicy - Notorious B.I.G.V1 Comment
9All I Do - Hishaam
10Changes - Tupac

As terms of lyrical this song deserves to be much higher, along with Nas and biggie and Em

One of the few rappers to talk about actual problems not just sex drugs...

Any song from Tupac has a real lyrical meaning.
