How does Shakespeare compare against modern rap artists?

A couple of months ago Eric Malmi wrote about his work on Raplyzer, a method for analyzing Finnish rap lyrics.

Using the new version of the analyzer, he ranked 94 rap artists based on their rhyme factor, and even threw Shakespeare in the mix. He describes the results in a new blog post.
