In no particular order, Kool G Rap named himself, Nas, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, KRS-One, Jay Z, Eminem, Big Pun, Ice Cube and Scarface as the best lyricists to ever do it.
Notably, he left out Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac, to which he rebutted both were great rappers, but weren’t worthy of Top 10 lyricist status. Thoughts??
