47. Gift of Gab
Super-fabulous the patterns have been upgraded
This man has a borderline great discography to back being on my list. from the Blackalicious Eps, to their classic albums Nia & Blazing Arrow, those projects alone are enough for G.O.G. to be on your list. His first solo Fourth Dimensional Rocketships Going Up is great as well. his new one Escape2Mars isnt bad either. Granted im not the biggest fan of his like i used to be, he's still a top notch mc and not many can touch him content wise, flow wise or even wordplay wise, and thats a hard thing to do to be more than adequate in all areas. thats what the Gift of Gab brings. He literally has that gift. I'd say as an MC he's probably influenced me more than anyone else listed so far.
