Nobody sustains a metaphor like Lupe nowadays. Joe Budden tries, but his sh*t is more blatant. Lupe is slicker with the wordplay.
Lupe has the more difficult one to understand but Joe Budden metaphors are better

On a man-made lake, there's a sheet of thin ice
where unskilled skaters, couldn't figure 8 twice

thin ice- weak beat
unskilled skaters- weak MC's
figure 8 twice- 8x2- 16- 16 is a verse.

No one is seeing GZA with the metaphors. NO ONE.

A simile is a comparison, often using "like" or "as", saying the things being compared are similar in some nature. A metaphor doesn't say they are similar, it says in some aspect the two things are identical, they are the same, one is the other. For example:

"My book is a ovary
The pages I lust to turn
My pen's the p*nis
When I write the ink's the sperm"

- Pharoahe Monch

Nah....Budden'll have something that'll have you pressing rewind, but Lupe's wordplay can advance a verse/story...that's more impressive then a punchline for punchline's sake.

Cassidy, Fab,And Wayne are the nicest at that punchline sh*t.

Lupe and Gza are probably the most clever.
