"Only Built 4 Cuban Linx pt 2" is maybe my favorite hip hop album this year.

Changing my vote to Raekwon.

Going by their solo works I would have to go with either Ghost or the Gza. Going by their work in the clan, Ghost or Inspectah.

My least favorite when it comes to their work as an MC is easily the Rza, not to say he isn't talented, just that his skills lie elsewhere. Although, his flow in Protect ya Neck is sick.

I like Meth, Dirty, and Ugod, they were great for adding a lot of flavor into the mix, but on a lyrical level I would not compare them to Ghost, Rza, Rae, or Inspectah.

Nice thread

I'm always surprised at how many people rank ODB as the best rapper in the Wu. Don't get me wrong, I love that God and RIP, but he ain't close to the best honestly.

1) RZA - Lyrics too deep for comprehension unless you do like a months worth of research to figure out what he's talking about

2) GZA - Lyrics are amazing as well, though not as deep, he's better at metaphors and rap-battle style

3) Deck - Very underrated, nobody kicks a song off better than Deck

4) Ghost - Between his lyrics, storytelling, and stream of consciousness flow

5) Raekwon - Not a big fan of that thick ass NY accent, or his slang, cuz I'm not from NY, but he has very smart lyrics and skilled delivery

6) Meth - That flow....oh my...that flow...like sex to my ears

7) ODB - God rest his soul, super creative, fun, awesome to listen to, sometimes the lyrics aren't too great but his delivery is unmatched

8) Masta Killa - He's like the love child of RZA and GZA

9) U-God - doesn't get enough credit, his flow, rhymes, and delivery are top notch, but he's had some **** songs in his solo career besmerching his name

10) Frukwon & Too Poetic - Gravediggaz technically, but badass nonetheless

I've always thought GZA's lyrics were mediocre.

I agree, I don't think Deck gets enough credit. But my vote is still with Meth, crazy good.

Because this is just the best "rapper" thread, I'm voting based on pure emceeing and wordsmithing. Raekwon.
