Underappreciated Moments of Great Lyricsim

Over the next week or so, while I try to finish up some half-finished sets I'm working on, I will be doing posts on some of my favorite lyrical performances of all time. I tend to put less emphasis on lyrics than most hip-hop heads do, but...great lyrics are great lyrics. I will concentrate on underrated rappers (AZ, Big L, Turf Talk, Z-Ro, Trae, Clipse), unrealeased tracks (Lupe, Jay-z, Ghostface), and mixtape gems (Lil Wayne, Pharrel).
