This is a hard one for me. Some days i feel like eminem is and some days i feel like lupe is but i like lupe's content more. He talks about things that have more substance & meaning.

Eminem will def grab ur attention more with his lyrics than lupe.

Well Lupe on the other hand is more lyrical content creative wise. Em on the other hand is lyrical with the multi-syllable rhyme scheme. So their lyrical styles are very different. But I guess I'll go with Em.

Lupe is more lyrical. His wordplay, double entrande are far in another level. And also Lupe is a far superior story teller than EM. The only thing em got over lupe is flow and multis.

Em still a great rapper, but when it comes to lyrics, Lupe got Em.

You're reachin pretty f**kin hard right now....

Now, Lupe is prolly my fave rapper right now and I def think he's the best out but there's no way in hell Lupe's wordplay is better than Marshall's....Nor is he a better story teller. I got Em as a top 5 lyricists of all time...I don't know if Lupe would make my list just yet.

Lupe is great and is in my top ten but what defines lyrics? the message of songs? the metaphors? no its the meaning of words

Sing For The Moment (one of the greatest rap songs of all time)
No Apologies
25 to Life
Rock Bottom
The Way I Am
8 Mile
White America

and Story telling? really?

these are haunting, ICONIC songs and are the epitome of great story telling

where did all the hatred for em come from? there seems to be a thread about him everyday on bx. dude has sold how many records? has how much money? has how many awards? appearently he is doing something right and idk a single category lupe has on em.....

i think they are totally different styles tho...em wants you to feel his music and what hes been thru but then he can also be funny and throw out some off the wall type sh*t while lupe just seems to always have the same kind of swag

Niccas come on here talking some dumb shyt, anybody who voted for Eminem is flat out stupid, how is this even a debate? Lupe's wordplay double entendres, metaphors, similes, etc are light years ahead of Em's all Em has is multisyllable the lowest easiest form of rap, rhyming a bunch of syllables with straightforward meaning is just not impressive. Nothing Eminem, or Cannibus, or Pun, etc goes over your head, abstract rhymes are obviously much more impressive. Hence the Lupe's 96 Jay's, GZA's etc are just much much better lyricist.

Niccas like that multisyllable rhyme shyt because its easy to understand they don't have think much whereas with metaphors it requires abstract thought and the ability to reason and understand analogies.

"But now that I'm a little calmer / I'm a f**kin' cross between Osama Dahmer Obama and Dalai Lama" Nothing to interpet straightfoward easy on the ears and appears dope to laymen.

"Striving to be numba one till I overdose" Shorter but its leaves room for interpertation.
