2 Dear Mama - 2pac

I'm so glad that Tupac beat Eminem in a list for once, as he deserves to. It's not about rhymes, contrary to popular rap belief, but what the song makes you feel, the effect it has on you. Considering that, Dear Mama has to come out on top.

I hate these eminem fans. They don't know the real rap. This needs the number one spot

Not only the rap songs with best lyrics, is the best rap songin my opinion

Not only the rap songs with best lyrics, is the best rap songin my opinion

3 The World is Yours - Nas
4 Uncle Sam Goddamn - Brother Ali
5 Suicidal Thoughts - The Notorious B.I.G.

I think this song has to be at number 1. Just listen to the song for yourself. - Mumbizz01

6 Shook Ones, Pt. II - Mobb Deep

"They shook, cause there ain't no such thing as halfway crooks."

Yeah, this song is most powerful lyrically, although the flow and instrumental are also pretty damn good. - SwagFlicks

10 The Cause of Death - Immortal Technique

The Newcomers

The Contenders

The last two lines really kill the entire mood for me.
The entire song is emotional, honest and straight from the heart... but he couldn't possibly stop himself from ending this wonderful ballad about his daughter with a crude violence joke and a Beavis and Butt-Head laugh!?
