I personally think drake ain't 🤬 but 🤬 swear his one of the best lyricist out today

Can people post bars, lines, punchlines, wordplay , anything from this guy that separates him from average joes on the mic? I've heard half his catalog and i never heard anything special

If he's an amazing lyricist does that make lil durk and tyga above average? what does that make crooked I and lupe? Where's the barometer?

    He has a superb flow which has helped him compensate for his lyrical abilities

    He makes hits no doubt, but he's not a lyricist.

    It done got to the point where you can't tell whether Drake bitin Sean or vice versa. And we all know tha truth about that. On that mixtape/album he dips into the Migos flow (read: Lord Infamous). 🤬 stay bitin. 🤬 this copycat ass era of hip hop

    I dont think he's a great lyricist but he sneaks some 🤬 in there every now and then.

    He is not a complex lyrical rapper a la lupe or crooked..but he can still get it in lyrics wise n yes the flow enhances his lyrics imo...the fact people can understand him clearly unlike some of the "more" lyrical rapper also helps make him appealing to a broader audience...again imo

    I don't view him as a lyricist at all. He's a talented rapper. He does kick a few bars every now and then, but he's nowhere near the level of a Lupe.
