I wish rap was still like that :( It's like they don't even try anymore. Anyone who is super conceited and can rhyme could be a famous rapper.

it is a shame but there are rappers still keeping it alive.

POS, and atmosphere are probably my favorites from this age

Are you doing this for a possible rap battle? I think that was you in the other thread. And POS is really good! I'm going to check out atmosphere real quick.

I would ignore the bands related on the side because it's punk music you probably wont like either haha. But I love it >:P

But this song by him is a bit better lyrically.

I'm sorry but the stuff that Eminem write is genius. I'd like to see you write something that is even 1/1,000,000th as good as the stuff he writes.

And not only is he one of the best lyricists in rap, he also has great flow and can rap better than most people out there.

oh sorry if i gave you the wrong impression, i never meant to discredit eminem, because he IS an AMAZING rapper. it just bugs me when people put him at number one because he is NOT.

top ten yes, number 1 NO

Eyedea. /thread

Eyedea is - well, was - insane. He was an amazing freestyler - one of, if not the best ever - and his studio stuff is amazing - great metaphors, fantastic wordplay, perfect flow and clarity, all of that.
