The Art of Storytelling
Some artist have it some dont. These 5 (1 honorable mention) emcees painted vivid enough pictures that we can actually see verses in Hi Def.
1.Slick Rick-Fathered the genre and influenced countless rappers with his swagger and delivery.
2.Nas-His way of telling stories from diferent perspectives One love,I Gave you Power and Black girl lost are legendary.
3.Notorious B.I.G-Versace Swagger and vivid lyrics = genius
4.Andre 3000-Listen to the Love Below
5.Raekwon-Not only a beast in the kitchen but on tracks see Cuban Linx and Lex Diamond Story.
Lupe Fiasco-One of the future standard bearers of this lyrical tradition.
