Kendrick Lamar and Lupe Fiasco Battle It Out For ‘Lyricist of the Year’ || The Ether Report Awards

The Ether Report Awards are back! After a storied year that saw some of the best music in some time our panel couldn’t wait to feast on this years nominees.

Lyricist of the Year was a two man race between some usual suspects, Lupe Fiasco and Kendrick Lamar. There was Fabolous with his Friday Night Freestyle series, Big Sean‘s unsung excellence, Logic, Vince Staples, and Earl Sweatshirt to debate, but at the end it came down the most elusive pen in Chicago history vs. the man who is topping year end lists around the scene.

As clear cut as it may have seemed, there is definitely a debate here. How did you see it? Let us know. Hit us on Twitter or drop a comment.
