jay z is a great lyricist but GOAT? come on now lol. I can name at least 20 people who is lyrically better, dont mean they got better subject matter or a better rapper, but in terms of being lyrical, they are better.

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.
Mastered the English language??

Not to brag, but throughout most of my life I've been considered "ahead" of all my peers in my English classes in almost every grade growing up. My mother started me early with reading and audio books before I even entered pre-school.

I can personally say that Jay-Z is NOT even close to the word "master" when it comes to the English language. Rappers that I can say for sure that have heard make excellent usage of the English language and really understand it are:

Rakim, Nas, Canibus and Mos Def
. I'm sure there are more, but those come to mind immediately. Jay-Z does not. He is clever at times with word usage and wordplay. I'll give him that, but he does not possess the vocabulary, understanding, nor incite, to spit rhymes on the level of any of the four that I mentioned.

KRS-ONE is scaring me these days with his statements. Not sure what he's going through, but I hope he gets better.

Top 5 Lyricists:

1. Nas

2. Andre 3000

3. Common

4. Scarface

5. Ice Cube


Jay is in my top 5 mcs of all time but as far as lyricists he is no where near the top 5. This is because he has never said anything thought provoking or stood up for anything besides himself. He has great wordplay, but it takes substance to be great lyrically thats why u dont see people like Biggie, Canibus, or Big Pun on my list because I never felt like they represented anything but entertainment. Think about it, have u ever heard Jay talk about something thats effects us all instead of just the hustlers and millionares or have u ever learned anything about life listening to him?

greatest rap artist TRUE!!!! yes, but greatest lyricist? What about B.I.G., Big L, Big Pun, NAS, I mean COME one, Mos Def, Talib, I can name a hundred artists Lyrically BEtter, but I guess sales, poularity, and mainstream mass appeal account which makes him the best rap artist, I mean why do you get into rap!?

How can you be the best lyricist ever when you are a BITER!?!?

Close thread.
yeah, it is funny how jay tries to switch up a few words in lines he take from other people. he gets away with that because the lil youngins who don't know slick rick, rakim , kane rhymes swear it is all jay..........lol.........but he is still one of my favorites.............but i haven't been feelin his new sh*t too much

I guess Alzheimer finally caught up to these "old schoolers".

They must've forgotten about cats like Big L, Big Pun, Rakim, Canibus, etc.

Hell even LL is more lyrical than Jay z.
