You don't need to send me anything. If you like it, that's all that matters, and I'm certain there are many rap artists whose lyrics are quite good. The meaning doesn't matter either, really, you can write a good set of lyrics about pimps and ho's. Subject matter doesn't matter at all.
They don't need to rhyme either, IMO. I suppose it flows better if it does indeed rhyme, but it isn't necessary.
I'm not claiming everything I like has good lyrics either, some do, some don't. As an example of lyrics I do consider very good, check out anything from Tool's Lateralus album or Megadeth's Countdown To Extinction.
I listen to a bit of everything except for rap, country, techno & mariachi (sp?)
