If your talking just lyrical ability it's Lupe; but from the complete criteria you stated it's Kendrick

Lupe in his prime was better in every category.

But now, J. Cole out of those three.

Lupe is better lyrically, flow wise, storyteller, and better overall.

K Dot is second

J.Cole third

Um...Lu's not new school. Anyway Wasalu in his prime >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> every new rapper out and it's not even close.

Flow - Lupe
Charisma - Kendrick
Lyrics - Lupe
Storytelling ability - Cole (Kendrick's more creative but doesn't tell stories as well track for track)
Song structure - Not sure how this is supposed to work tbh...

Deadass Lupe Fiasco's mixtapes were the truth. Fahrenheit 1, 2, and 3 plus Enemy of the State and Friend of the People. On top of that Lupe Fiasco's first two albums are certified classics in hip-hop. Lupe Fiasco has taken some L's like with F&L 2 and Lasers, but what rapper doesn't hit a creative slump in their career? A Lupe Fiasco stan like me can at least make the argument that pressures from his label ruined his creative output and stagnated his music. Maybe he's just been putting out wack sh*t to end his fu*king contract.

However, J. Cole should not even be compared to Lupe Fiasco. J. Cole should not even be compared to Kendrick. Now do I think that GKMC is better than F&L or The Cool? Nawwwwww son. Lupe Fiasco did everything on those two albums. Amazing storytelling, k!ller flow, punchlines, lyrics, conscience rap, and he had hit singles.

Give Kendrick a couple more albums to see where he takes his career. But I think Lupe Fiasco will step his game up he has only one more album under contract from Atlantic. He's only 31 so I think he could keep pushing the genre.

Of course the answer is Lupe and although Lupe is in my top 5 this can even be proven objectively speaking. Just listen to "Food and Liquor" by Lupe and you will understand why he is better than both of the artist you listed.

You can even compare the songs "Food and Liquor" to the any J.Cole or Kendrick project and you will see why Lupe is the more technically skilled rapper.

Don't ask dumb questions OP

You're a d!ck head period though, therefore your opinion is null and void.

Go do something useful in your life for once

Yes Lupe is the more skilled rapper, I believe from a lyrical standpoint you can make a case for him being the GOAT.... But 'Good Kid Mad City' is prob a better album then 'Food & Liquor'... probably a better album then Lupe has ever made

1. Don't include Drake in here

2. Think J Cole could even compete.
