I don't know what an Emcee is... but I know that Eminem does it for me lyrics wise. Maybe I'm just ignorant, idk.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

I could wax philosophical on what exactly "lyrical" means as it pertains to hip-hop, but I would have to say Mos-Def would be my first choice. Maybe a little clarification of the definition would be in order.

I took it to mean a combination of the lrics themselves and the manner in which they were delivered.

Check out J-Live and B.E.N.E.F.I.T. both very lyrical. Rakim and MF as well both have lyrics that will make your mind spin
