    My go-to lyricists are Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Eminem and Jeezy (when he ready to go at it (ie; Thug Motivation 101)) - although, I seek inspiration from everywhere.. The key for me is, the flow has to be well-rounded (cadence, delivery, double entendres..) - but, the artist could spit about anything (Eminem/Rock Bottom, Jay-Z/Like That)..
