Nas is a rapper. One of the more lyrically intelligent articulate ones as opposed to the pure hardcore gangsta pop-radio acts.

You factor out the "holy trinity" of rap (Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Eminem) the next two rappers on the greatest of all time list are likely a back and forth between Jay-Z, and Nas. They had some of the biggest back and forths of rap history.

Personally I'm not that big a fan and I'd probably put LL and KRS-One over both of them but that's a topic for another discussion. As much as people like to talk up Nas I've always wondered what songs they think about?

With Eminem you have a huge assortment of hits like
Without Me
The Real Slim Shady
and plenty more

LL Cool J has classics like
Rock the Bells (which I'm pretty sure most people haven't actually heard beyond the opening verse)

I Need Love

[Image Can Not Be Found]
Even Jay-Z has stuff like that people would know like
Big Pimpin

I Just Wanna Love U

[Image Can Not Be Found]
But Nas? I never know what people know about Nas there's stuff like
One Mic
which my dad is a huge fan of
but at school ( i went to an HBCU- google it) people would talk about stuff like

and **** Jay-Z isn't really lyrically fun or anything

I also like
Hip Hop is Dead

which is pretty fun
but peeps talk about
Made You Look

Hate Me Now

neither of which I personally enjoy

as a P.S. I do like
his track with Damien Marley "As We Enter"

That's a lot of nas there.. and I'm not big into Nas.. I feel like I should dump some KRS links in here but it's highly unlikely anyone will even click all of these as it stands.

I've never been a huge fan of Nas. I favorite QB rapper would have to be Noreaga. Biggie being at the top of my list which puts Jay-Z somewhere a lot lower because of the way he conducted himself after BIG was murdered. I'd still put Pac @#2 even though "if I have to choose a coast, I have to choose the east". Eminem is meh. You can't deny his commercial success and he is often telling a story, so it's interesting. But I find his flow to be very choppy, it's not smooth like Biggies. I like the way LL Cool J destroyed Cannibus :P

I'll co-sign on that if only because I fully agree that "The Ripper Strikes Back" is one of my favorite diss tracks.
