    Depends on your definition of lyricist. If you mean just raw heat in the Canibus way, then easily Crooked. That is his dimension, that is what he does in his sleep. But if you mean pure poetic lyricism in the Nas type of way, then Kendrick. Game is a dope, style shifting mc but he shouldn't be anywhere close if we talking lyricism. Overall, I'd put Kendrick because he can do both types of lyricism whereas Crooked will aggressively out bar him.

    Smh please post a "hot" Kendrick verse or bar

    Blacker the berry - very potent verse/lyrics
    I'm the biggest hypocrite of 2015
    When I finish this if you listenin' then sure you will agree
    This plot is bigger than me, it's generational hatred
    It's genocism, it's grimy, little justification
    I'm African-American, I'm African
    I'm black as the heart of a fuckin' Aryan
    I'm black as the name of Tyrone and Darius
    Excuse my French but fuck you — no, fuck y'all
    That's as blunt as it gets, I know you hate me, don't you?
    You hate my people, I can tell cause it's threats when I see you
    I can tell cause your ways deceitful
    Know I can tell because you're in love with that Desert Eagle
    Thinkin' maliciously, he get a chain then you gone bleed him
    It's funny how Zulu and Xhosa might go to war
    Two tribal armies that want to build and destroy
    Remind me of these Compton Crip gangs that live next door
    Beefin' with Pirus, only death settle the score
    So don't matter how much I say I like to preach with the Panthers
    Or tell Georgia State "Marcus Garvey got all the answers"
    Or try to celebrate February like it's my B-Day
    Or eat watermelon, chicken, and Kool-Aid on weekdays
    Or jump high enough to get Michael Jordan endorsements
    Or watch BET cause urban support is important
    So why did I weep when Trayvon Martin was in the street when gang banging make me kill a nigga blacker than me?

    Untitled song he performed on the one of those late night shows - very potent verse/lyrics
    (What did the Asian say?)
    A peace of mind
    That's what the Asian said, I need a divine
    Intervention was his religion and I was surprised
    Him believing in Buddha, me believing in God
    Asked him what are you doing, he said "taking my time"
    Meditation is a must, it don't hurt if you try
    See you thinking too much, plus you too full of yourself
    Worried about your career, you ever think of your health?
    (What did the Indian say?)
    A piece of land
    That's what the Indian said, I needed the man
    Telling me longevity is in the dirt, should buy some property first
    Should profit a better dollar with generational perks
    Equity at his best, really, you should invest
    These tangible things expire, don't you expect
    Income with so much outcome and yes
    Look at my heritage, we blessed
    (Now, what the black man say?)
    A piece of pussy
    That's what the black man said, I needed to push me
    To the limit to satisfy my hunger
    We do it all for a woman from hair cut to a war
    We like to live in the jungle, like to play in the peach
    What you saying to me?
    He said "nigga, come back to reality for a week"
    Pussy is power, fuck on a new bitch every night
    I wouldn't be prouder, you should allow it
    (What the white man say?)
    A piece of mine's
    That's what the white man wanted when I rhyme
    Telling me that he selling me just for $10.99
    If I go platinum from rapping, I do the company fine
    What if I compromise? He said it don't even matter
    You make a million or more, you living better than average
    You losing your core following, gaining it all
    He put a price on my talent, I hit the bank and withdraw
    Hit the bank and withdraw, hit the bank and withdraw
    Put myself in the rocket ship and I shot for the stars
    Look at what you accomplished and what he said to the boy
    I'mma make you some promises that you just can't ignore
    Your profession anonymous as an artist
    If I don't target your market
    If you ain't signing your signature when I throw you my wallet
    A lot of rappers are giving their demo all in the toilet
    Your world tour, your master's, mortgage, I need a piece

    Last verse of the "I love myself" song
    I promised Dave I'd never use the phrase "fuck nigga"
    He said, "Think about what you saying: 'Fuck niggas'
    No better than Samuel on Django
    No better than a white man with slave boats"
    Sound like I needed some soul searching
    My Pops gave me some game in real person
    Retraced my steps on what they never taught me
    Did my homework fast before government caught me
    So I'ma dedicate this one verse to Oprah
    On how the infamous, sensitive N-word control us
    So many artists gave her an explanation to hold us
    Well, this is my explanation straight from Ethiopia
    N-E-G-U-S definition: royalty; King royalty - wait listen
    N-E-G-U-S description: Black emperor, King, ruler, now let me finish
    The history books overlook the word and hide it
    America tried to make it to a house divided
    The homies don't recognize we been using it wrong
    So I'ma break it down and put my game in a song
    N-E-G-U-S, say it with me
    Or say no more. Black stars can come and get me
    Take it from Oprah Winfrey, tell her she right on time
    Kendrick Lamar, by far, realest Negus alive

    No such thing as luck. That's a loser's way of thinking.

  • Re: DJ VLAD&RAGGED MAN: Nas is not the GOAT & Illmatic is not the goat album and he is worst beat picker

    Vlad is hating, Nas' beats are straight, good even. I think it has something to do with their lack of melanin. They can't vibrate with the frequencies Nas gives off.

    The other shit he said is a matter of opinion.
