What Does Lyrical Mean In Rap? (EXPLAINED)

Lyrics are the words to a song or rap. But what does lyrical mean? You might have encountered it when talking to rap fans or listening to rappers, so we will teach you what it means and how to use it. 

When someone says that you are lyrical, especially when rapping, you are good when spitting out rhymes, verses, and meaning. “Lyrical” primarily came from the rapping community and emerged from the fact that rap songs have lyrics. However, the popularity of this slang has declined. 

You may use this slang this way:

“Mac Miller was lyrical. Sadly, he is already gone.”

Or

“Eminem might sound offensive, but he is a lyrical genius!”
