Recently, New York-based designer, coder and data scientist Matt Daniels took up the challenge of figuring out who had the best vocabulary in Hip Hop – pulling out the number of unique words from the first 35,000 lyrics of 85 artists. Low and behold, QN5’s own CunninLynguists landed at #3 on the list! Which is basically around the level of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick! Yet, another dagger in the skulls of those who continue to sleep on Deacon, Natti & Kno’s stellar lyricism. Smile

“Moving past Wu-Tang’s dominance, the next three artists are relatively not as well-known. Of the three, Kool Keith has the most diverse vocabulary. For a taste of his work, check out his album with the largest vocab: Dr. Octagonecologyst. #2 and #3 are two relatively underground (yet accomplished) acts: Jamaican-born rapper Canibus and southern-based group CunninLyguists.”
