    Rakim is one of the greatest as well in my opinion. Dude was amazing with the lyrics and flow and was amongst the originators of multiple word rhyme schemes

    Jayz is BUSINESS , maaaaan and he proclaims that. He doesn't need the lyricist title anymore although when reasonable doubt was released he easily had that title then. So there it is Jayz used to be one the greatest lyricist, now he's showing his business savvy

    I doubt it, hes acting just as retarded on other threads.

    This thread has confirmed to me that deep down even the biggest jay z/commerical music stans(you guys seemed to team up for this thread) know that nas is better. All im hearing is he worked with kanye, he sold more records etc which have nothing to do with talent. I find it quite funny that all the people who would defend drake or kanye west as good rappers(they arent) or blindly ride for any music that is successful just because its successful all seem to think jay z is better, yet everyone else thinks nas is better. I wonder whos right...

    As pure rappers they arent even comparable, jay isnt on nas's level. Nas murdered him on every track theyve ever done except one. For the last 10 years every nas album has been better than jay's and before that most of jay's albums werent as good as nas's.

    Jay gets outshined by the singers and the beats on his new album and the beats and features arent even very good. When has nas been outshined by a feature or a beat?

    To me, great rap is exemplified by several factors:

    • aggregation of many syllables
    • a good flow (meaning a lot more than just fillerfillerfillerfiller AB| fillerfillerfillerfiller AB) good flows might start with 3-4 syllable end rhymes, but then they drop and add syllables all throughout the rhyme skeleton
    • punchlines that aren't corny / don't suck
    • lyrics that aren't overplayed -- lyrics can be meaningful
    • combining high volume syllables with a good flow and good punchlines = great rapper

    That being said, old eminem is probably the only person mentioned who fits those criteria, but he's not in the number 1 spot.

    I'd say Grafh in the early 2000's might be number 1.

    Then there's people like Promise NYC, and even Cory GunZ when he's trying (this is how you flow by the way, idiots:)

    edit: rap is an art, and half of you have IQs too low to appreciate any kind of art, that's why all your choices suck.

    Ya'll are retards...
    L.I.G. and Illmatic XX lifted Nas back in the limelight. His 20 year album rerelease of Illmatic made serious hits online in many shows, venues, interviews ... Illmatic is legendary... no Jay album is greater... STFU.

    Nas is at the top today hands down.
