    Common without a doubt. Pac is profound of course, but lyrically, flow, delivery, ComSense wins.

    When you talk about lyrical you're referring to the rapper's ability to express deep personal emotion or observation.

    He can; but that comment was a general statement. A lot of folks seem to think lyrical or lyrically deals with the complexity of the lyrics (think Hovi Baby or Inspecta's verse on Triumph). It doesn't. A DMX is a lyrical rapper, his emotions poor out from his songs.

    Going with Com Sense even though its tough.

    Common: B-87
    Pac: B-85

    *Can't recite one Common Lyric"


    If he was such a good rapper, his music would find people... bottom line.


    Can recite PLENTY of Tupac lyrics, and I was not a fan, never bought one Album

    It'd be like asking who's a better running back, Barry Sanders or some nigga in the CFL...



    if he was THAT good, he'd be playing in the major leagues

    As much as I respect Tupac, I'm gonna have to go with Common on this one. He has the lyrical complexity, flow, and depth of content that Tupac did not have.

    Got love for Pac, but come on:

    Great songs

    Invocation was one of the first songs I heard by him.

    I can't vote. These are 2 of the greatest to ever do it.
    do you understand what im getting at?? WHAT WHITE PPL THINK, AND WHAT THEY DEFINE THINGS AS IS NOT THE STANDARD YOU SHOULD BE GOING BY. That is of course, if you are not mentally defeated by the complex of white supremacy, where everything whites do is the "right" way, where having straight hair and lightskin is "beautiful" but dark skin and nappy hair is "ugly"
    You're doing it wrong. You take one and really fuck them up; make an example to the other kids. Like grab the small bitch and gouge her eyes out with your thumbs. Then curb stomp her.

    Lol....whats funny is that i always thought of common as a poor mans tupac..

    just more technical and his style was always more subtle and backpacker friendly...while tupac was more abrasive and mainstream

    So im not surprised to see common so close here...but the answer is pac easily

    Pacs delivery and flow are unquestionably better imo and his lyrics resonate better with listeners...

    Common is on point...hes dope at everything but really really great at nothing...his biggest quality is his instantly recognizable voice. Over dilla/kanye/no id beats of course he sounds great....

    But pacs presence on the mic was just so big and his lyrics were so potent...u gotta give him this
