Most Consistent Lyricists/Rappers

This is a breakdown of rappers who I feel are/were most consistent over their career.

5) Talib Kweli (BlackStar, Reflection Eternal, Solo)
4) KRS-One (Boogie Down Productions, Solo)
3) Common (Solo)
2) Guru (Gang Starr, Solo)
1) Rakim (Eric B. & Rakim, Solo)

Explanations:
Talib Kweli- Hasn't had a bad album to this date. Has three classics on his resume.
KRS-One- Been in the game since '87 and has been dope since.
Common- Other than Electric Circus, everything he's done is nice.
Guru- Everything Gang Starr did can be questioned as a classic. Also his jazzmatazz series was dope. Everything except for like Baldhead da Slick was nice.
Rakim- No need for an explanation.

HM: 2Pac

Beautiful Struggle was a bit below Kweli's standards especially when he starts singing about never loving before.

Yes But By Three Classics I Meant:

Mos Def And Talib Kweli Are BlackStar
Reflection Eternal/Train Of Thought
Quality

The Beautiful Struggle Was A Good Album, But Talib Tried To Do A Little Crossover Which I Hope He Stays Away From When His New Album Comes Out This Year.
