Not a surprise he is my favorite rapper. Still he is a shorty we kept telling him he won't make it cause he is white. Yes Biggie is great, yes Tupac is amazing, Nas is awesome, but imagine how good Eminem had to be just to sell albums like he did and have some many fans, and just have the career he had. He could make an album just with freestyles! The words come naturally to him. No doubt. He is born to be the best. Both Slim Shady and Marshall Mathers have insane and shocking lyrics. He is definitely untouchable. I don't even think there is a single word in Lose Yourself that does not rhyme with something else. He his the only one that can make "sandwich rhymes" like he does.

Rap is about lyrics, and this guys lyrics is levels above the rest. I love all his work. relapse was good the rhymes in that album are ridiculous and even though it might be his worst album it could still be in the top 20 rap albums ever. I love his newer more motivation stuff and remember rap is music and he is the only rap artist that makes songs that can hold up with all-time greats of other genres. HE TRANSCENDS rap. his flow is the best ever and doesn't recycle lyrics like everyone else does.

His lyrics paint a solid picture and when you listen to them you feel like you've been through the same that he was through just because his lyrics are so heavy. They carry so much weight behind them and they pack a heavy punch. Never say Eminem has gone soft.

There time has passed wherein people could say Eminem is good for a white guy, this guy is just a genius, every artist has their own bad tracks, from pac to biggie, but what matters is the overall material they've put out over time, if the good outweighs the bad, then they are the, you came place Eminem anyway long as it's in the top 5 or six if you slipped.

He is the best and the best and the best of best... Other than all rapper... Eminem is just a pack of bomb that can kill anybody's rap... He's is awesome man... When you listen to songs like TILL I COLLAPSE, NOT AFRAID, WHEN I'M GONE, STAN, SING FOR THE MOMENT, WITHOUT ME, and especially LOSE YOURSELF the you will come to know what is Eminem... Really great

I'm not hopping on the band wagon, but Eminem is one of the greatest lyricists of this age, and those before him. He is obsessive with his music, that is why he is the best, raw talent has a pivotal role as well, but he is constantly writing and honing his skills. He puts in the most work, that's why he's the greatest, period.

Man if you ever want to hear some meaningful lyrics then just listen to any of his songs. From loose yourself to mocking bird to beautiful to not afraid each and every song is filled with inspiring lyrics just give it a go

Tupac is great don't get me wrong but he isn't lyrical he was more like a poet than a rapper that being said in a lyrical sense Eminem and nas run the game closely followed by andre 3000 and kendrick lamar (sorry I only know mainstream rappers no disrespect to the underground)

There are sayings that rappers such as Jay-z, Nas, Tupac, Biggie, Big Pun, and Big L that are considered the greatest. When it comes to rap though, nobody can keep up with Eminem. Not in the past, not now.

Best lyricist hands down. The Sauce, Brain Damage, Almost famous (Uses longest word in dictionary), Rock Bottom, 313, Renegade, No apologies.. And so many more.. Eminem's a legend and I can't see him being surpassed anytime soon.

Eminem's lyrics are insane. I've listened to lyrics from his songs and wrote them down. Some of the metaphors in his songs I didn't even pick up on until like a month later. And the metaphors are one thing, the rhyme is another. If you group his lyrics into rhyming categories, it's rare to find a word that doesn't rhyme with another word. The only rappers I've heard rhyme as much as him are...

Royce the 5'9"

Eminem is the best rapper of all time in my opinion. He makes great songs with great lyrics (Ex. Lose yourself, Sing for the Moment, Stan, etc). Very rarely he has songs with bad lyrics (Ex. Fack- This song is funny but mostly DISGUSTING). Eminem is the best.

Earned so many grammy awards, more than anyone else.. No one compares to EM his lyrics are funny and really powerful, he should be number 1 on this chart, hands down.

Never heard anyone put words together like him. His flow is flawless and his lyrics mean something. No matter how many times I hear his music I'm always surprised with what he comes up with. BEST RAPPER EVER!

His Complex flow and multi-syllabic rhyming schemes are completely unmatched. He gives his all in each song and it feels so effortless! Take Lose Yourself for example. He literally rhymes each word with something. Each one

Not afraid I first listen to it...from that till now I am only listening to Eminem.. he is not like others, rapping but he creatively gives a meaning to his songs and his way of delivering is phenomenal!

Listen to infinite. I know he sounds like nas, but he has strings of entire lines that rhyme. Definitely the best lyrically, although comes close

I am a poet to some, a regular modern day Shakespeare Jesus Christ, the king of these Latter Day Saints here To shatter the picture in which of that as they paint me As a monger of hate and Satan, a scatter brained atheist

Eminem its just amazing with his ideas what he talks about and his life he made history best rapper alive even if he white skin color doesn't matter it the talent and what you bring to the table

Eminem is the best lyrical rapper but its saddening that Tupac isn't number 2 he was amazing in lyrical especially given the time he wrote his songs in witch was a year of his mainstream career.

Sorry, Eminem is by far my favourite Rapper and in my opinion also the best, but he is not the most lyrical Rapper. Eminem is famous for the best rhymes and great flow and his funny lines. But his lyrics are not that deep!

If you want proof of Eminem's lyrical prowess just listen to his bad meets evil album, the song renegade, American psycho, and any one of his freestyle raps. Also, an older song, but just as good as any, is his song any man.

Who is Hichkas? I have heard none of these rappers besides Tupac, nas and Eminem in the top ten. Eminem is the best rapper of all time. Is the best with lyrics, and lose yourself is the best rap song ever. You can't beat him. - TheAlterPlace

Eminem's wicked yet realistic lyrics has no equal.. I really don't know what type of mood he's into when writing song because every time he gets sentimental, my hair stands tall..

His lyrics are amazing. Honestly this who say Lil Wayne is the best lyrical rapper obviously haven't heard Eminem's songs.

If you would like to hear some of Slim's best lyrics or rhymes, keep reading.
"Marsh' ain't Mellow" this is pretty lyrical cause he's saying Marshal is not mellow (Marshal is his real name bty) and it sounds like he's saying marshmallow.

"Haters can make like bees with no stingers and drop dead" this should be pretty obvious.
