Oct 19 - KRS-One ""Jay-Z is the GREATEST LYRICIST of All time"
 

 


KRS ONE co signs, that a big co-sign.... Chuck D said the same thing in 4korners Magazine, no
longer in publication, that Jay the best due to fact to his extensive diction that allow him to master the English language with ease.

Well coming from Krs & Chuck and even Marley Marl said it in the source Jay the best, plus I talken to Kool G Rap at his last album release party and he gave it up to Jay. Its one thing for us as fan to argue bout our favorite artist but when The legends co-sign you that a whole notha story

Jay-z's the man.

I like Jigga, Pac, Nas, Biggie, Eminem (I know people hate him, but in his day he was mad!!), Big L, Lord Finesse, KR-S..

All legends in their own right.

I dunno why, I just think Hova tops them all for some reason..

Are you serious? There was way too many witness of the gangsta lifestyle to give credit to Melly Mel. You seriously think NWA would of just been like RUN DMC or something.

Its a difficult question because im not sure what defines a lyrist.

Using extensive vocabulary used, wordplay, rhyme pattern, metaphores and similies, punchlines ,humour, wit, and concepts behind the music.

Without question Canibus has the most extensive vocubulary and the most varied and unusual concepts in his music....for me lyicaly he is the best...but his rhyme pattern, flow, puchlines and wit are poor .

Eminem has good wordplay, a decent vocabulay and humour, (although i dont like it) he has the most varied flows but the concepts behind his music a lot of people cant relate to and he doesnt really use metaphores and similies as much in his music....his music is probably more about conveying emotion, shock value and unusual flows than tight lyrics

Big L had it all...the best wordplay, similies and metaphores, the best wit, he had a decent flow but the concepts behind his music were probably not as varied and of course he only brought out one album which isnt a big enough catalogue to say the best lyricist of all time.

Nas has the best concepts behind his songs, they are varied and deep, his vocabulary is amazing, he has a great flow but his humour and wit arent great, he doesnt really do punchlines and his wordplay isnt great either.

Jay z's wordplay is crazy (perhaps as good as big L's), he has varied similies and metaphores, an extensive subject matter, humour, wit and puchlines, a variation of flows and a good vocabulary...and he has done it consistantly for 11 year.s

I would say that jay z could be considered the best all round lyricist but their are rappers who have been better than him in evry department except maybe flow and its very close between Big L and him on wordpay.....but overall the total package of a lyricist.....in other words he leads the league on overall points but doesnt top any tables in indiviual categories

Its just my opinion though.
