Its a nice list,but personally I'd add a few more people & take out another few from the list.By the way,since when is Nas considered a lyricist???& what about 2Pac & Caz.I give those last 2 props for writing their own shit but they're in no way lyrical.

What on earth are you talking about?  Are you asking if Nas writes his own lyrics?

Nas cant be considered a lyricist if he doesnt write his own lyrics.Plain & simple.

lol nas does write his own lyrics, but he fell the fuck off about 9 years ago.

kool g rap>nas
I ain't little but vicious, guns no misses You feel me, kisses or wishes, fore I break you up like dishes Fuck your bosses, my forces, endorses To kill all your sources y'all niggas best be cautious No losses, my fortress, is Jaguars and Porsche's Ride the OTB to check my money on the horses My horrors is flawless, my block one of the broadest Off the main attraction for them whitey ass tourists That I tosses, it scorches, with out no remorses Leave they bloody body to be found in Mount Morris

Primo´s voice is average but not wack and if he were capable of writing "NY State Of Mind" and "Represent", I´m very sure he´d rap

So Jungle & Wiz keep hiding their talent with every line they spit, so that nobody believes them when they claim they´re responsible for the unbelievable lyricism Nas came up with in ´94. Ok.

i don´t think anyone believes them but that´s what Jungle said in Murderdog.
