Agreed. And I have a sneaking suspicion that most people who vote for him aren't familiar with many of the other people in the poll.

I voted for him and I have heard of all the others. EL-P comes closest.

El-P dominates. Eminem doesn't produce and his rhymes definitely aren't as deep.

I am proud that I voted for El-P. I'm disappointed I'm only 1 out of 11 people who have done so.

Eminem wipes the floor with EL-P lyrically. Let's at least be honest.

An Eminem album produced by EL-P >>>>>

In terms of the amount of syllables that rhyme maybe, but in terms of actual subject matter and raw content El-P is so far ahead of him it's not really even that comparable.

Nobody would argue that, but in terms of skills as an MC, Eminem tops the lot.

Lyrical skills, flow, rhyming style, technique, quality of writing etc.

EL-P, as you said, discusses more serious subjects, but he doesn't spit like Eminem. Not many can say they do. He is pretty much one of the greatest lyrical MC's of all time, nobody can doubt his technical talent.
