How is Cube below E when E doesn't even write his own, and most the NWA album is written by Cube...
Tech N9ne, like Eminem, has many brilliant lyrics out there. Being the number one independent rapper in the world, also owning the number one independent record label Strange Music, Tech is definitely one of the best rap artist in the phase of mankind. Tech can get pretty lyrical, for example, the following songs: I'm Not a Saint, Nobody Cares, Low and Nobody Cares are one of many great lyrical songs by Tech N9ne. If you listen carefully to his lyrics, I'm pretty sure you will agree with me.
John has deceptively simple lyrics. But there is some magic about them.V 1 Comment
Tragically underrated on this list! Should be up there with Springsteen!
How come nobody talk about that great artist, it always amazed me. So deep, so full of heart, an amazing guitarist, an amazing songwriter, every chris's songs could be hits, he was such a great melodist, one of the greatest for sure.
Read them and make your own decision but it is clear he is/was way ahead of anybody on the list. Should be number 1 by a mile.
Very underrated lyricist, Yes I'm talking about the bassist for "Motley Crue". Believe it or not, He's the soul lyricist for Motley. The only thing better than his bass playing is his lyrics, yes sometimes Tommy, Mick, and Vince help write a song, But every song I know of Sixx was involved in the lyric writing process.
None of these can touch Mark Smith.
"saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand"...do opening lines get any better than that?
