Tupac is the best lyricist try to prove me wrong its simple you can;t
Tupac's lyrics were about the struggle, being locked up, and being shot to death.
Look at what happened to him his whole life.
Do you really want to keep influancing yourself with his negative music? There are plenty of other rappers that are just as good but dont ask the universe to kill you or make life difficult.
i prefer josh
first eminem did not sell more records than pac so get off the bandwagon fucking stupid pussy and pac rapped about life and how we can improve as humans and help each other but he had a other ego of thug life he just got caught up in the thug life and got himself killed by surge
Are you kidding me?
This is the best lyricist of ALL TIME
Tupac did it for the the kids who don't have a thing
Except for a dream and a fucking rap magazine
Who post pin-up pictures on they walls all day long
Idolize they favorite rappers and know all they songs
Fuck that. Tupac is alright, but I never could have gotten into him. The best rapper (in my honest opinion when it comes to lyrics and flow) is South Park Mexican. Ya he molested a child, was a drug addict and dealer, a thug, but his lyrics are jaw dropping. Jerry Cantrell, fucking great song writer, and his lyrics are always spot on. Hell even Kurt Cobain was a better lyricist than Tupac, but I'm just comparing different kinds of music. Still though, being a lyricist is a difficult thing to do, even though the music is different, you can still talk about who's a better song writer all the way from pop to death metal (death metal lyricists are usually... well you know).
Greg Graffin is a better lyricist than all these nigger rappers. Here's an example:
Striking at mental apparitions
Like a drunk on a vacant street
Silently beset by the hands of time
Indelicate in its fury
An aberrant crack as skeletons yield
To unrelenting gravity
While viruses prowl for helpless victims
Who succumb rapidly
(Tell me!) Tell me; where is the love?
In a careless creation
When there’s no “above”
There’s no justice
Just a cause and a cure
And a bounty of suffering
It seems we all endure
And what I’m frightened of
Is that they call it “God’s love”
Twisted torment, make-believe
There’s a truth and we all submit
“Believe my eyes,” my brain complies
To all that they interpret
I know there’s no reason for alarm
But who needs perspective when it comes to pain and harm
We can change our minds; there’s a better prize
But first you’ve got to…
They call it God’s love
My pain is God’s love
I seem to remember these guys were pretty popular at one time
It actually pains me how none of you are saying Eyedea or Michael Larson. He is easily the best rapper I've ever heard. The Many Faces Of Oliver Hart still gets a play every month! R.EYE.P
I got styles you can't copy bitch, it's the triple six
In the mix, straight from H-E-double-hockey sticks
Every Sunday, a nun lay from my gun spray
Fuck Carlito, we doin' shit the Devil Son's way
Every minute, my style switches up, they said a real man
Won't hit a girl well I ain't real cause I beat bitches up
I use words that's ill, L got nerves of steel
I'm cool, but every now and then I get a urge to kill
I'm takin lives for a great price, I'm the type
To snap in heaven with a Mac-11 and rape Christ
And I'm fast to put a cap in a fag chest
The Big L's mad stressed, cause hell is my address
I'm on some satanic shit, strictly, little kids
Be wakin up cryin, yellin, "Mommy Big L is comin to get me!"
Birthdays was the worst days. Now we sip champagne when we thirst-ay.
Whoever said drake is better, You obviously wear skinny jeans and "Swag Out" with your fagboys. Noone is the Best, hands down. Music is an art form, and interest is based on individual opinion. Vocabulary can be examined, but flows are popular to -eople who like them. Thus, there will never be a factual, set in stone, number one because everyone is always going to debate it
"we aint ready to have a black president" - Tupac
he was right this whole time
Excellent at conveying deep emotion. May be melancholy as fuck but brilliant none the less
26yo uni masterfag reporting in. 2pac=great lyricist
Nas>Biggie>Tupac in terms of lyricism during that time period, sry faggot
This guy is not only the best but the most underrated rapper of all time.
