Most Lyrical Rappers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Joe Budden

Joe is easily one of the best rappers/lyricists to this date, If you believe otherwise, then your a fan of drake, meek mill, or kendrick lamar. Its simple as that. Joe been slept on for a decade+, which is fine, just don't put him last on this show. Either put him closer to the top or don't make him look bad and keep em of the list.

Joe can do any style of music and shoul be in top 5, look up inception or dumb out and you will be glued to the song

This list is WACK half of these names on this rap list a tent lyricist. There's no way JOE BUDDEN SHOULD BE DOWN HERE. Rakim, Eminem, Fabulous, Big Pun, Joe Budden, Crooked I, Kendrick Lamar, Stack Bundles, AZ, E-40, Kanye, K-Rhino, Chino XL, The Clipse, Royce 5'9, Joell Ortiz, Slaughter House, Lloyd BBanks, Jay, Nas, No particular order but I have all these rappers or Lyricist before Big and Pac

This is my opinion. I don't base my list on popularity, or ALBUMS sold, or how much money, or how many albums sold. My list is based solely on skill level. (Metaphors, punchlines, wordplay, etc

102 Tyler, the Creator Tyler, the Creator Tyler Gregory Okonma (born March 6, 1991), better known by his stage name Tyler, The Creator, is an American rapper, record producer, and music video director.

One of the most creative, clever, and thought provoking artists that came out in the past 5 years

Definitely better than 90 % of these rappers on the list

More creative and lyrical than 90% of the rappers here

He should 100% be the top of this list wow

103 Travis Scott Travis Scott Jacques Webster, better known by his stage name Travis Scott, is an American hip hop recording artist, record producer and musician from Houston, Texas.

Computer Virus Scott's lyrics don't make any sense. Plus he's makes pop music not rap music and plus he should clean his mouth out with soap.

Travis Scott? Lyrical? Rapper? Pleaseā€¦

Popping pills is all we know
It's okay at the night show
I just hit a three peat
Messed up some hoes that I met this week
She just wants hot cocoa
I love habanero

Meaningless lyrics from a no talent hack (not really even a rapper for goodness sake) and with all the autotune, he might be the pain 2.0

104 Vinnie Paz

Vinnie Paz and (AOTP Army of the pharaohs) Celph Titled in particular are some of the most underrated rappers in the rap game. Supreme flows, lyrics and punchlines

109 T.O.P

T.O.P. is really talented. We can see it in every his work, it doesn't matter whether it is music or films. He has really unique voice: low, deep and sensitive. His lyrics are full of feeling. He deserves to be called 'the most lyrical rapper'!

Yeah he writes the lyrics with our leader, GD. He also acts well on drama! I love his voice so much~ And he is cute. So we often call him 'Bingu'. I hope to be the 1st rapper with GD! I love you^_^
