Top 10 Rap Songs with the Best LyricsThe song whose lyrics, were terrifically done and great to listen to.
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.
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.
No doubt, best Rap song ever written, there is no rapper alive or dead that can match Em'lyrically!
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...
This is hip hop. Culture Vultures overrating EM on every rap thread are the reason why they are rejected from the culture on a permanent basis. IF they knew anything they'd have another white rapper to D ride by now. Total disgrace. Lose Yourself? LMAO not even EM's most lyrical work. #Paranormal white culture vulture trash
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
Pure lyrical content. I've never heard a song so complex and lyrically surperior than N.Y. state of mind. Nas is the greatest rapper ever.
First time I heard this song was incredible will never foget the feeling an' I still get it every time I hear this! Still ones of the most lyrical songs I've ever heard!
Incredible word choice, flow and lyricism in general. A masterfully told story with deep subliminal and direct meaning.
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.
Such a masterpiece, beautiful and disgusting at the same time.
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.
Tupac is the best, no boubt, but he could never write a song as lyrical as this. Most lyrical rap song of all time.
Why is Juicy even on this list. That's a happy song...
I grow up listening to this nuclear bomb song from one of my favorites
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,
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
Crying so good
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")
One of the few rappers to talk about actual problems not just sex drugs...
Any song from Tupac has a real lyrical meaning.
Best lyrics of all time
Lyrically strongest rap song ever. Social and political attitude, real discription of violence by gs, ratsists, drugs, slums,cups and bullies.
Listen to the first bar
The alliteration and imagery in this? Talk about poetry, this is it.
I think this song has to be at number 1. Just listen to the song for yourself.
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
"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.
This one hits had. I like this better than NY State of Mind. Universally relatable.
