El-P’s pretty lyrical as well, especially his earlier stuff in Company Flow.

I don’t even fuck with Em, but saying he’s not a lyricist is just being an ass. Don’t be biased because you don’t like his fame and dumbshit fans.

I’d say Nas, but I’m a Nas Stan, so take it with a grain of salt. For others, consign Com and Aesop. Elzhi’s dope, too. Oldies like G Rap and Ra may not be relevant, but they are alive and plenty lyrical still.
