yea again not arguin in the flow department...Thought still iller in everything else...Em can keep the flow...Thought got the lyrics and the content
Eminems content since his return has been lacking but apparently will be rectified on Relapse 2.People in the past complained about his songs being to personal and how they wanted Shady back now he is back they want the personal stuff again.

Eminem is one of the bets lyricists ever,its hard to split the people at the top.Hooks are a big part of songs(some would disagree)and Eminem has them coming from all angles aswell.

And I already answered. When discussing rappers of this caliber, whether it be Em, BT, Nas, Jay, BIG etc.....the skills of each are so sick you can't pick a winner. They aren't athletes that can be ranked in a statistical fashion besides sales.

I prefer Em over BT.....but BT is a sick too.


of course you can...you can judge wordplay,story telling ability,song writing,live show..a myriad of things...they aren't all at the same level with each of these categories..hence OVERALL being the KEY word in the title of the thread....



you're just choosing to not really delve into the different categories that can be broken down..

Like Em Says half the s**t he says He make Ups. Thats the biggest problem I have when ppl say he's the Goat and s**t. With that said tho, I could never say his technical rhyme skills isnt dope; Breathing, Flow, Wordplay, and rhyme schemes. Its his substance that keeps me from saying he's the best.

I think em is better at hooks and songwriting even tho its make believe s**t. as far as just spitting their pretty even.
Co-sign. I personally prefer Black Thought as an emcee, I have more Roots albums than Em albums and in fact I'll probably never cop and Em album again unless he gives me good reason to. However Em has shown that he can do substance too, he chooses to do that less often but he can do it. I think he beats Thought in 2 main areas. Hook writing and variety. Thought has carried a solo album and doesn't display enough hook writing since he has ?Love and the rest to help him in that. Variety wise I find Thought sometimes sticks to the same Kool G Rap-influenced no-pause type schemes a lot. I find Em switches up more and displays a greater range. So in terms of "checking off the boxes" I would have to vote for Em.

Edit - but I voted for Thought...the substance part ovrrides it for me.

Thought is probably the most complete MC of all time...like seriously.

He's behind Jay, Nas, and 3000 on my list.

I understand the different variables that make up a good MC.

All I'm doing is choosing not to bicker about two MC's that are mentioned among the GOAT's. If it was as clear as day like you're trying to make it seem, everyone would agree on the same GOAT, top 5, top 10 etc.....

Why do you think the Nas VS Jay or Pac VS BIG debates will rage on forever? Because you can't clearly pick a winner. This isn't two football teams playing where the winner is easily indicated by the final score. It's not like we're comparing someone like Rakim to f**king Soulja Boy........we're trying to pick the better of two MC's on the GOAT list. Big f**king difference.

I don't see how my stance here isn't reasonable.

who said anything about it being clear as day?...if it was clear as day i wouldn't have made the thread to begin with..that would be pointless...like a rakim vs soulja boy thread...but this ain't that....the question,and mc's i threw up pose for interesting debate...which is the point of not only this thread,but this website in general....


you choosing not to delve into the debate is again your decision...but that does not mean that the question at hand is fruitless,because you choose to not delve....

Em doesn't rap about s**t for the most part

it's funny cuz he seems like a thoughtful and introspective person...but his songs consist of f**gots raping mothers and stalkers chasing him
