Top 50 Lyricists According to The Source
It looks like The Source just made another list ranking how good our emcees are. If you know anything about the magazine, you know that they are horrible at ranking pretty much anything. The Blueprint and Stillmatic got “five mics” because of the beef. Lil’ Kim got five mics for possibly her worst album. When it comes to ranks and ratings, I don’t trust them much. Just reading off the list, it’s a surprise that Lil’ Kim is a better lyricist than Lupe Fiasco. It looks like they are going after mainstream success and respect in hip-hop, as opposed to rappers with the best lyrics.
