Between Shakespeare and Melville there's RZA, yo!

    Tremendous execution of an idea on who has the largest vocabulary -- rappers or literary kings -- based on their first 35,000 words.

    The literary benchmarks are Shakespeare (5170) and Melville (6022).

    Rappers are represented by everyone from Biz Markie to Wu Tang to Jay Z to Drake.

    DMX be dumbest, yo, at 3214, and Aesop Rock delivers the biggest vocabulary at 7392.
