From " Flipmode Squad Vs Death Squad " Reply Most underrated is AZ and Sean Price IMO Reply Jay Z always gets disrespected as a lyricist. Many consider him the one of the GOAT amongst his peers. Kendrick said he was the GOAT. Em put him Top 10. Nas even said Reasonable Doubt was one of his favorite albums. I don’t there hasn’t ever been a smoother lyricists than Jay Z in his prime (circa 1996-1998).

Reply MOST underrated Lyricist, Rapper, Storyteller, Flow, everything…..one name: AZ Reply 2pactupac2pactupac2pac Reply These top list people come up with are always off. It's so many cats that are skilled but didn't get that main stream exposure so their missed. It's always the dudes who had commercial success. For example, Loaded Lux, the early record shop Lux, was a monster but his songs are trash, does that discredit his skills? Look G Rap before the drug rhymes, Big Daddy Kane before he got gassed by Madonna, ll cool J, Ice Cube, Scarface, Slick Rick, etc. There are so many to actual have a top 5 is really disrespectful to hip hop. It's like having a top 5 in the NBA, just cause you didn't win a ring does that discount your greatness? Reply At the prime (no order) Em Wayne Pun Andre 3k Nas/big / big L /HOV/guru/most of wutang/ Mf doom/papose/DMX/ Reply had to shout out MF DOOM. He's a fucking phenomenol lyricist! Reply Why is he talking to them like they're preschool children and he's the teacher Reply Pharoahe Monch!!!! Reply Big L, Rakim, Pun, Canibus, Kool G Rap, Nas Reply "I speak at frequencies dogs would have trouble hearin' /canibus is the lyrical version of german engineering"…even as a kid I quickly realized this mans pen game was a few metaphorical miles above everyone's intellectual plane…the essence of an emcee Reply Akinyele!!!!!!! Reply dmx is a sick lyricist as well he can't be touched either Reply Chino XL should be top 5 Reply I agree with his list! Pun was amazing! Reply As soon as I heard Canibus, I'm commenting and cutting this nigga off. Reply motherfuck where is j cole cole fucking world Reply PacBig LBiggiePun Reply I got two questions who's the lady and who is that dude when joell ortiz said feral munch or something? Reply em is not in my top 5..sorry Reply can not forget jadakiss com on now!!!!
