Most Lyrical Rap SongThe song whose lyrics, were terrifically done and great to listen to.
The Top Ten
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.
HE SHOWS HOW LYRICAL HE IS WITH 'LOSE YOURSELF' PROVIDING LINE AFTER LINE DEMOLITION COMPETITION, WITH MULTI SYLLABIC RYHMING SKILLS THAT don't STOP ONCE IN THE WHOLE SONG
White People Gonna White People. This song is not the most lyrical of all time. It's not even Eminem's most lyrical song. You culture vultures are irrelevant and have the Rap IQ of a damp mop. The clown who cited awards like Grammy's is the prime example of a clueless white biased idiot. Awards/Sales have no place in quality review of hip hp culture, a culture to which you do not and never will belong.
Ain't no better son than this, give me your top five I'll wait... Illmatic still remain top
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 isn't even that nice...especially compared to NaS.
Such a masterpiece, beautiful and disgusting at the same time.
Incredible word choice, flow and lyricism in general. A masterfully told story with deep subliminal and direct meaning.
Tells a great story, amazing putting the words so brilliantly together like this
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.
Haha, you'll know this is a great song from the best to ever do it better... Escobar season has returned
Best song ever... Em is Em... but Nas did it pure... no other song is on par with this
This song is genius,
The best ever to do it better
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")
Lit.. That's it
well BIG was incredible in all tracks, my best from him still remain Hypnotise
Absolutely The Very Best Haha:-)
The alliteration and imagery in this? Talk about poetry, this is it.
I'm sick of psychotic society somebody save me
Addicted to drama so even mama couldn't raise me
Even the preacher and all my teachers couldn't reach me
I run in the streets and puffin weed wit my peeps
I'm duckin the cop, I hit the weed as I'm clutchin my glock
Niggaz is hot when I hit the block, what if I die tonight
I grow up listening to this nuclear bomb song from one of my favorites
This should be the only EM song on this list. Get these white culture vultures a new culture to try belonging to. Rap isn't for them. This is a great lyrical song, Lose Yourself is just a pop-alternative rap rock song that sold a lot of albums & movie tickets, metrics that are meaningless to lyricism.
I agree that Lose Yourself shouldn't be #1 and that Em is a tad overrated, but keeping on hammering "WHITE" at every sentence is not much better than the "alt-right" you accuse many people to be a part of. - JoLeKosovo
A song with great emotion and emphasises on day to day struggles
The story that set it off
This song was a national anthem to me. great song from legendary Pac
One of the few rappers to talk about actual problems not just sex drugs...
As terms of lyrical this song deserves to be much higher, along with Nas and biggie and Em
Any song from Tupac has a real lyrical meaning.
Common is a great lyricist! This song was definitely the greatest hip hop song of all time
Way better than the others above it except dance with the devil
Listen to the first bar
YES! MOVE THIS TO TOP TEN!
This one hits had. I like this better than NY State of Mind. Universally relatable.
Life's a bitch and then ya die, that's why we get high
Now you all know that Kendrick is the current GOAT, you think I am lying okay fine check out, sing about me I am dying of taste by Kendrick Lamar
From the first line to the last line, pure despair and emotion. A real trip down memory lane.
Best and realest song out there! Shows a lot about Kendrick and his skills he has!
The absolute flow and lyricism while still telling a story and sticking to the theme of GKMC! Amazing!
Yo, you can't just forget about the legendary NWA greatest, he did it better than your best pick
Yup. No one knows about this track and I wish everyone did. This is why Dre signed him. Incredible
Shows ems raw talent and skill back when he wasn't doing it for only money. Before he got struck by the commercial success, when he was putting out songs so lyrical that I think infinite is in my top 10 songs by em
Before Eminem got famous, he made songs like this. This song perfectly showcases Em's raw talent with words.
Go listen to this, your mind will be changed
Great song, Nas is a lyrical genius
who is your best storyteller? mine is Nasir Jones, Olu Dara
