# of Unique Words used within an artist's first 35,000 words.
Who boasts the most Brobdingnagian (i.e., biggest) vocabulary in hip-hop? Featuring 100 meticulously hand-drawn MC effigies, the Pop Chart Labs chart of lyrical locution analyzes the lexical freshness of nearly every rapper of reputeâ€”including Drake, the Wu-Tang Clan and cult favorite Aesop Rockâ€”tabulating the number of unique words used in each artistâ€™s first 35,000 lyrics (roughly equal to 3-5 albums).
Produced and expanded in conjunction with Matt Daniels, and adapted from his original "Largest Vocabulary in Hip-Hop.
This playlist has been made to support this ill creation. One song has been chosen from each artist (personal choice) and has been ranked in the order of #1 Wordsmith (Aesop Rock) to the Last (DMX, sigh)
