101 Greatest Hip Hop Lyricists (Alphabetical order)

It's hard to actually rank 101 of the greatest Hip Hop Lyricists without feeling like I'm overlooking some MC's but this list is mainly due to the fact that to many lists go for commercial success rather then pure skill and I just wanted to make a list that has room for some of the most Underground as well as some of the most commerical lyricists...Consistency, versatility with subject matter especially with the use of Inventive concepts, Poetic Lyrics, Wordplay, Multi syllables, Metaphors, Punchlines, Double Entendre and Storytelling abilities is what's put into account for this list not record sales. Obviously this is just my opinion and no matter how many different Hip Hop artists I listen to their are clearly still some popular MC's that I haven't explored enough and I haven't included some very skilled lyricists that might not have much material or just aren't very versatile. I also haven't included some rappers that might appear in groups that are great but the MC's themselves might have been surprassed or were just outshined by their contemporaries and I'm aware that some legends didn't quite make it. But I can say with all confidence that everyone included here isn't just lyrically complex but are also unique with their flows and personalities that they're able to bring through to their music.
