A new study for measuring the “Lyrical Intelligence” of top R&B/Hip Hop artistes has revealed that Hip hop great, Eminem has intelligent lyrics than his counterpart, Kanye West.
This is simply achieved by putting the lyrics of any track into Readability-score.com which would give the statistics by using multiple methods to determine the grade level of any text entered.
For any song/track to qualify for the study, it must have at least spent three good weeks at the top of Billboard Charts for Pop, Country, Rock or R&B/Hip-Hop between 2005 and 2014.
The image below says it all:
Eminem leads the R&B/Hip Hop pack with an incredible 3.7 grade reading level — even more than other artiste with the exception of Carrie Underwood and Mariah Carey.
Kanye West, who stuffs his songs with a lot lyrics came in with a weak grade of 2.8 reading level.
