Men, have you ever listened to Eminem? He can rhyme practically everywhere in his songs, he can make internal rhymes, multisyllable rhymes, and free rhymes so easily! When you listen to Lose Yourself or Till I Collapse, you understand that all those rhymes can't be there by chance, that's the work of a genius... Not to mention his ability in world plays (just listen to Vegas or So Far) and his AWESOME flows that changed so many times in the year and makes him a Rap God (damn, this song has more different flows than all drake's songs together)! Vote for Slim Shady guys! - Slim-Shady
2RakimWilliam Michael Griffin, Jr., better known by his stage name Rakim, is an American rapper. He was born on January 28, 1968.
Rakim influenced the technic of barely all the MCs that came after him, he's the founder of modern rapping! He'said a master in word bending and metrical accents... And I have not talked about his rhyming skills yet! He can put rhyming words everywhere in the verse, men.. He's surely the king of MCs, you should vote for him - Slim-Shady

Now that I think about it, Tech N9ne is number one on this list His flows in his All 6's And 7's alone can top Eminem's flow, well, in all of his songs Not to mention his rhyming is arguably the most dynamic in hip-hop, who the hell can rhyme up to 10 syllables and above, while still making sense?!, only Tech man, only Tech
He has many awesome flows and I like how he sometimes uses guitar in some of his songs like "I Am Everything". - Metalmatt
Are you kidding me? How is he so low ranked? - Basecube
Are you deaf?! Only Eminem can rhyme better than this guy, only Eminem! You need to listen to songs like He's A Mental Giant,So Dope,the Chopper Series and pretty much all of Tech N9ne songs This guy is crazy technical not just in rhymes but his rapping skills as well He is so fast and pronounces every syllables clearly. No one other than Eminem can rhyme better than this guy
