List Rules No duos, trios, or group. Only individual rappers.

When ranking the best rap artists, the rapper's vocabulary is an important factor in determining which hip hop artists stand above the rest. Whether they use small or big words, the most creative rappers use a variety of vocab in their lyrics. Instead of repeating profanity and rhyming same words, the best MCs have a large vocabulary. Which rapper has the best vocabulary? 

Featuring Eminem, Aesop Rock, Raekwon, and more, this list of rappers with the largest vocabulary includes some of the best rappers of all time

Vote up who you think are the rappers with the best vocabulary, and vote down the rappers who need more time studying the thesaurus. Feel free to also add rappers with good vocabulary who are missing from the list.
