DOOM is the greatest lyrically if you’ve heard a good amount of his work, especially Madvillainy & Vaudeville Villain.

Other lyrical rappers I could name:
-GZA (Really any Wu-Tang)
-Nas
-Andre 3000
-Del The Funkee Homosapian
-Pharoahe Monch
-Aesop Rock
-Slug

Just to name a few….

Whoever says that Kanye is not lyrical is out of their mind. Especially when you compare him to today’s rappers like Waka, Gucci, and lil B.
Also I agree that Odd Future Wolf Gang are all great lyrical rappers, especially Tyler the Creator. Tupac rapped about reality and he wasn’t as lyrical as Biggie, but still good.
If you are looking for some incredibly intelligent, hilarious lyricism Bo Burnham can’t be beat. The kid is honestly a master of the english language.

^I guarantee Canibus has a better mastery of the English language, seeing that he’s from an English colony (Jamaicans, represent!).

Nearly every parent has engaged in conversations with their teenager only to discover that their adolescent was all wise and all knowing. I have had several such conversations with my lovely 17-year-old daughter about rap music and the overt and cloaked messages communicated. On one occasion I recall talking with my daughter about the many messages conveyed by some rap music videos. In particular, I asked her the following question, “Doesn’t it seem odd that the male rappers are fully dressed and the women are barely dressed?” My daughter responded, “Oh Dad, you are always preaching. You’re old fashioned and reading too much into these videos!” My overlooked point was that these rap music videos are not neutral. They communicate cogently clear and subtle messages. Namely, many of the rap music videos tend to objectify or de-humanize women. Of course, my daughter’s assessment of me is all too common for parents: Dad is stupid and doesn’t know a thing.
