The master himself this guy has more experience than anyone I know if it wasn't for him rap wouldn't be at this standart so yeah dre is awesome
Yo 5'9 is a great rapper not the best but he lies among the best he even dissed kanye west on a track with em just so he ain't scared but he will be if you got em on your side..
I Think you're on the wrong list dude... This is "Best lyricists of all time" Not "Top 10 worst artists". Can all you musically illiterate people saying that rap is the greatest genera of music please, go somewhere else. The only decent, Famous, rapper is Eminem, That I know of anyway.
Hour got swag but other than that he is na average rapper
As many as you may know, Hopsin is a brilliant man and makes good music. Successfully, owning his successful record label Funk Volume, Hopsin managed to make it into XXL, and have his fellow signees' Jarren Benton and Dizzy Wright make it to XXL. Hopsin is successful and one of the best rappers alive. Hopsin inspired me to be independent and to be irrelevant to what society has to say about me. Listen to his song Tears To Snow
After writing the hook for Eminem's hit song, The Monster, there is no doubt this man can't be considered as one of the Top Ten lyricist of all time. Jon has many great songs, believe it or not, his song Paper Planes reaches your soul the first time you hear it. He also has an amazing style, and I've never heard an artist with the same style that Jon acquires.
The hip hop duo from New York City, by the names of Jeremy Dussolliet and Time Sommers, better known as Kinetics & One Love, are no doubt amazing lyricist. They've written songs for many mainstream artist. They're well known for writing the hook for B.O. B's Grammy nominated single Airplanes. They have songs that will guarantee make you burst into tears. Their song Sign Language touched me in a way you can't imagine. It has to be one of the best songs I've ever listened to. It literally made me cry the first time, and several other times.
Ex vocalist of Woe, Is Me. Vocalist of Issues, Tyler has released many songs with the band. In my opinion, the most lyrical song by Issues has to be Disappear (Remember When). Tyler's voice is amazing, and he's a very good looking man himself. I would consider him a good lyricist, but the best. Nevertheless less, feel free to check Issues out, maybe you may disagree.
Madchild is one half of the hip hop duet, Swollen Members. Madchild has a radical voice and it's just impressive, defiantly gives him character. Madchild has funky lyrics, which in some occasions, are considered genius. In the song Jacques Cousteau, Madchild, as I quote, said, "I spit the nicest ether, eating all these rappers like a slice of pizza." As soon as he said that, he became one of my favorite rappers. I think that verse is genius and he definitely deserves to have more credit for spitting his ether in an amazing way.
I am a fan of every genre, rock and metal being my favorites, and there have been MANY great lyricists. Mostly everyone in the top ten deserves to be in there, but Pete is an amazing poet. He's witty and has very deep and meaningful lyrics. I know a lot of people probably don't like him, but just listen to his lyrics in Fall Out Boy. They're great.
Pete Wentz writes really deep lyrics which are full of meaning. There's probably at least one Fall Out Boy song that you can relate to completely, they're so great and well written. And I love the movie references in the titles!
I would say that Wentz definitely deserves to be on this list. A song I that always get's me is "What a Catch, Donnie" on the album "Folie a Deux", a song he wrote for his best friend and Fall Out Boy's lead vocalist Patrick Stump
"I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match, what a catch"
Insanely underrated. It's unbelievable he's only one place ahead from Taylor Swift.
Why is HE on the list, come on people the guy is so over rated! He said "Rap is the new Rock'N'Roll, And I'm the best of the best." The dude ISN'T a good, never mind great, Lyricists! He writes meaningless lyrics... I can think of 10 better lyricists off the top of my head. (In no specific order. )
10. Nikki Sixx
9. Robert Plant
8. Axl Rose
7. Izzy Stradlin
6. Eddie Vedder

Hell even Taylor Swift is better! I mean I don't really like her music, But at least she's talented, And doesn't think she's better than anyone everyone before and after her... (I mean he named one of his albums "Yeezus"... REALLY KANYE?!?!
