I wouldn't go that far, but in terms of concept songs I don't think anyone has done it better. the picture he paints in this song is unbelievable.

if you die, tell them that you played my game
I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name

Cole hands down, Kendrick a close second.

Cole is not the best at one thing but he's pretty good in all aspects of a skilled rapper.

Criteria reordered for importance:


Lyrics - Lupe/K.Dot/Cole

>Lyrically, Lupe is a monster. K.Dot and Cole are both dope as well, but Lupe is clearly on another level in this department.


Content - Lupe/K.Dot/Cole (Can't believe this criteria has gone overlooked for 4 pages )

>This category is pretty close. All 3 of them talk about some real sh*t and not just that moneycarsclothes sh*t that the mainstream is oversaturated with. That being said, Lupe and K.Dot have more insight on sociology and psychology, while Cole has more insight on the average person's plights and struggles. Lu and Dot are more about social commentary and Cole is more about individual experiences that transcend race/culture/religion/etc.


Flow - Lupe/K.Dot/Cole

>Lupe is ahead of both K.Dot and Cole, and he should be considering how long he's been doing it. The other 2 only have 3 albums combined compared to Lupe's 4 alone. Lupe outshines in this category against most rappers to ever do it though, so it's no knock on either Kendrick or Cole.


Storytelling ability - Lupe/Cole/K.Dot

>They all tell dope stories, but Lupe does it the best hands down. And Cole is ahead of K.Dot in this category.


Song structure - Cole/Lupe/Kendrick

>A bit of a tossup. They all have good song structure, but Cole probably has the most cohesive songs if you have to pick a winner in this category.


Charisma - Kendrick/Cole/Lupe

>Kendrick is the winner in this category hands down. Dude has that "IT" factor when it comes to an MC with charisma without being fake. Lupe is the least likeable and relatable because of just how out there he is personally. He's a love him or hate him figure, and it's too even (love vs. hate) to be considered charismatic.


Final Ranking

1. Lupe
2. K.Dot
3. Cole

Either way you look at it though, Hip Hop has a bright future


SN: Producing has nothing to do with being an MC, but lord .5 mercy that boy Cole can produce.

Lupe is the GOAT lyricist...

"Cecil Rhodes sewed war and genocide into the countryside just to get his shine on / I fear what De Beers and his peers used to do before the world really knew just to get their mine on"

"If you ain't Million Dollar Dreaming then we opposites / In high school I was voted the most Ted DiBiase-est / Also the most slept on, cause my Ted DiBiase-ness"

"I'm just a wolf inside a lion's suit, a shark shirt, a panther's pants, piranha hat and tiger shoes / I got a lion's den inside the booth, that right there is point blank, this here is from where the snipers shoot"

Read that last one as "I'm just a wolf inside a linen suit, a sharp shirt, a pair of pants, put on your hat, and tie your shoes"... Dude was just insane lyrically.


And that's just his mixtape sh*t.

1. Don't include Drake in here

2. Think J Cole could even compete.
Drake has two pop albums that only caters to bi*ches and follower n*ggas who know nothing of real hip hop....

Lupe>>>J.cole>Kendrick>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>Drake

Lupe had all of these (except Charisma), I don't know what happen to him, he fell off hard.

Drake is not include because he's not in the same league. He had a chance to be but he sold out to make money. By that I mean he change his style and flow for the radio songs, he was much better before. I'm not hating on him, I might have done the same thing. Its about the dollar.

What you said about Cole, is just hating at it's weakest.
