    Currently? Top 25... all time? Top 100

    Kanye is not bad lyrically... I just don't like his flow and beats... he was always a marginal rapper fluently, but he was better early on... now he's lazy as fuck with his flow and I can't stand the way he drags his lines out.

    I was no huge fan of Kanye to begin with. Even though I didn't care for him I would still listen to his music every now and then. Now, everything after Graduation has been nothing special to me. He now has a flow more annoying to me than even Meek Mil. And that is saying something.

    Kanye's not bad lyrically but he's also not good lyrically.

    top 25 is great and he's definitely not that lyrically.

    I rank Kanye lyrically somewhere between "autistic savant" and "the other 99% of autistic people that have to wear helmets"

    I think recent Kanye (last couple of albums) and early Kanye (first few albums) would be in totally different categories.

    We could easily come up with a list of 100+ mcs. Probably 200-300 better mcs without a huge deal of thought imho.

    If we're talking lyrics only, Kanye isn't top 50... maybe not top 100...

    hes a decent lyricist... nothing special... but to make good hip hop, u dont have to focus on being the most lyrical rapper on the planet. thats how so many rappers fail.

    overall, hes on my top 10 all time list because this nigga's songs have great content and he's creative as fuck... and he knows how to put quality albums together like no other.

    I'm kinda not the dude to ask this question to because my stanards for lyrics are on some other shit

    so I can probably name like 20 dude's who are better than kanye lyrically

    I mean black thought, mos def, I'd even venture to name drake, and ace hood as dude's who are all above him lyrically to me..

    But to me, kanye's real talent is how artistic he is with how he expresses himself, nobody can do fashion like him, nobody can do sneakers like him, nobody can do crazy publicity stunts like him, nobody can come out with a completely different sound and look then turn around and switch it up again outta nowhere... that's what kanye's top 5, maybe even number 1 at.. his lyrics is aite, but he's really an amazing trendsetter and noise maker.
