Rapper Vocabulary

We all know that Tech effortlessly bends the English language to his will in any given track, but did you know his vocabulary is almost of Shakespearean vastness?

In a recent study conducted by data scientist Matt Daniels, the vocabulary of an array of rappers was studied by looking at the first 35,000 lyrics from each spitter and seeing how many unique words they used.

Among the top were Aesop Rock, Kool Keith, and pretty much the entire Wu Tang Clan, each clocking in at over 5,700 unique words used.

Tech N9ne appears just short of Shakespeare himself on the list, among names like Wale, Busta Rhymes, Common, and De La Soul at 4,830 unique words used!

It was never a secret that Tech crams a lot of words into his raps but DWAMN, to see them counted out like that is pretty impressive!
