Last week, Kanye West took to Twitter and made a very bold claim. “I open the debate," he typed. "The 2nd verse of New Slaves is the best rap verse of all time… meaning … OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF RAP MUSIC, PERIOD.” Now, we’re often inclined to agree with him (Beyonce might not have had the best video of all time, but it certainly was better than Taylor Swift’s) but sorry 'Ye, we gotta call BS. As great as “New Slaves” is, it is not the best rap verse of all time. In fact, it’s not even Kanye’s own best verse.
Over the years, Kanye has really stepped his game up on the mic. His flow went from being sloppy and choppy to precise and even acrobatic, and his thematic range has grown wider and wider. Yet, his best verses are spread out amongst his six solo albums, two collaborative efforts, and over a 100 guest features that span a decade. Since Kanye opened the debate, we’re gonna close it. These are The 25 Best Kanye West Verses OF ALL TIME...
