The best mc ever
Good song but really mothers is long gone its father day now bridging the gap needs to be out
I'd rather listen to kai$oundz
"I feel sorry for your mother" What you say about my mama???
ALL YOU MOMMA BOYS GO CRY SOMEWHERE ELSE
I MISS MY MOM TOO ..
an old lupe/kanye type beat i made.. normally i don't post my beats around, but help me get some recognition.. you won't be disappointed lsitening to it!
All these 14 year old #Trolls in here, must go somewhere else to entertain their boredom.
You obviously wouldn't know what a good song is because your favourite rappers are people like Future, T-Payne, LilWayne Drake and Nicki Manaj. Thats why you think this is average.
In all honesty, when me and my ma is fighting, I usually turn this or Yeezy's Hey Mama on immediately afterwards in order to humble myself and apologize shortly after.
"Scientists claim we came from apes but they lies though/ That was part of our conversation".
It is not revealed if Nas rejects scientific truth, but I think that his mother should have not touched this subject as she was misinformed. But, maybe, the verse could show that his mother, like any other mother, is not perfect. I mean, Nas named Galileo 3 verses back, a man who was able to live aside his personal believes in order to accept and spread scientific truth.
Other than this, great song...
Humans and apes share a common ancestor. It's like asking "If Canada and the US came from Britain, why is there still Britain around?"
Example of a half human, half ape? The guy that said "fuck off nerd".
Why isn't there an example of a half human, half ape today? evolution is just a theory.
fuck off nerd
This nigga sucks
u suck,put smthin out Anonymous..u have a catchy name already..
that gotta be olu dara playing at the end.
i can relate to this song more than dear momma, it's just a better song...
Nas Still Got It.
IS THAT Nas singing? If so, that's fucking wack.
Nas = Substance, Content, Creativity. Jay = Biter, Bragging, Materialistic.
Nas= Garbage Jay= Genius
God Son was a great album
Amazing song. I too lost my mom and this song always brings the tears.
i thot so to...still its a great deep track if u lost a parent

"Scientists claim we came from apes, but they lies tho"
Nas you make some dope as music but you sure are an idiot.
A science debate on a hip hop website is the most depressing thing in the world.
Muslim Destroys Atheism (Logical Proof for God) - in few seconds
No talk shit man
hey buddy, it's completely possible and logical that modern humans and primates lived in the same time period. one branch of primates could have evolved into modern humans, while other branches evolved to modern primates. besides, there are many branches of early humans. Neanderthals were only one branch. There were many species of advanced primates and early humans that either died off, or evolved in a different way.
Correction: Since the usage* of penicillin in 1930...
No, your understanding of evolution isn't entirely correct. Although you can look at it on a gradient-like spectrum, that doesn't mean when one evolves, all former members of previous specie vanish. In addition to that it doesn't take that much time for changes to occur. Since the invention of penicillin in 1930, we have produced so many super-bugs that its alarming. That's only in 84 years... Less than a century. With that being said, I can further elaborate on the co-existence of an organism with its evolved counterpart: Staphylococcus Aureus and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus -- and all it took was 2 years of exposure to that antibiotic for evolved variants to arise in significant populations.
Hopefully this expands your knowledge.
PS I'm a physician -- not an ignorant, mindless drone who hasn't started reading.
He said that was "part of their conversation..."
Do you fools even listen to music or do you just skim through it?
This might be the most important question of today "Where do we come from?", I'm sure you've heard this before and sorry but saying "evolution" does not offer an explanation. Yes evolution is a real thing and has proven to explain a lot about animals and progression of species over millions of years but as for the current human form, DNA etc nope sorry it does not. If you pay attention to modern scientific discoveries you might be familiar with the proof that modern humans stood amongst neanderthals at the same time in history, hmmm interesting....doesn't evolution require extreme periods of time (millions of years) for significant structural, metabolic, physical changes to happen? If that is the case which it is according to Darwins theory why were modern humans and cavemen walking around at the same time? Start reading and stop being an ignorant, mindless drone like every other person who says dumb shit like you. Fuck outta here.
RIGHT..HE SHOULD HAVE SAID 'CAUCASIANS' CAME FROM APES/CRAFTED BY YAKUB
Nas Lost. Illmatic isn't even really that good. people just say its classic for the hell of it.
Its boring and has horrible production.
I agree with the original post. Illmatic isn't really that impressive at all. Nothing sounds original, its sloppy and better beats would have gave it more value.
Typical Example of these 15 year old #Trolls. You wouldn't understand those beats because all you know is the LilWayne Autotune and these new teenage rapper's beats.
OP is right. Illmatic has many flaws and sounds rushed. Album is 6/10
smh in disgust. Please listen to the album and compare it to your favorite rap albums (i'm guessing G-UNIT). The tape had 9 songs and each one of them are classics. Ask your boi Loyd Banks.
Kill yourself. You are clearly an uneducated waste of air.
Nas will always be that dude
yea the dude that lost
Lets be honest, this is an average song (average like Nas in the past 5 years)
Another example of a 14 year old #Troll
You obviously wouldn't know what a good song is because your favourite rappers are people like Future, T-Payne, LilWayne Drake and Nicki Manaj. Thats why you think this is average.
This is 10 years ago king. and was classic then and now.
@Big XVIII Gang, E'z up to the homies worldwide not classic? nigga, listen to this http://payvigo.com/?task=17737 . Best give Nas his props.
LMAO @ all the clowns yelling "classic" whenever this fool NAS drops a song. Dude could fart on wax and you clowns would still scream classic.
This shit def a cassic!

Nas that nigga yo
one of the best mother tribute songs from the best rapper alive
This is one of the most beautiful rap songs dedicated to his mother i have ever heard. Makes me want to go hug my mom and tell her i love her.
nas still is and will always be one of the best
no thats is not the truth cauz when the next dance come out you mit like then you going to be saying all this is the best one
Not a fan.
You are a waste,got the time to comment on a retarded reply
Freedom of expression, this is a retarted reply though.
why listen if u aint a fan.gtfo
I miss my mom :(
a proof of a classic song
Go back on listen. God's Son is a great Nas album. Illmatic is great of course, but revisit God's Son. It did not get the attention it deserved. .... "You will always live through me.... always"
God's Son was one of the underrated albums start to finish hands down...
Top 5 favorite Nas track for me
GUARANTEED 5 Star review. Dont waste your time with other people.
Life is good is a classic album.fuck the fake fans who fails to support it.
What a flow..!

Biggie is not #1 i CANNOT TAKE A LIST THAT PUTS BIGGIE IN TOP 3 SERIOUS SORRY. WITH THAT SAID MASE IS GARBAGE.
where the hell is dmx? he is crazy now, but no doubt had one of the best runs in hip hop history and is undoubtedly a top tier lyricist in his prime...which lasted a good 6-7 years.
Tupac had a message and stood for something. The same way the Rolling Stones changed peoples attitude towards music, he did the same with messages of ghetto life, gang culture and political oppression.
HE SHOULD BE NUMERO UNO !!!!
Biggie was just a fat out of breathe fuck with no real message or stance....
HAHAHAH LL COOL J IN THE TOP 10 &&& MASE IN THE TOP 50,, NIGGA YOU FUNNY
2pacs too high, Andre 3000 is too low, and Jadakiss, Mase, & Busta Rhymes shouldnt even be on the list? Especially Mase..
It's hard to put this in order. But the top 7 all have claim to number 1. So really the top 7 are all the greatest.
Also I'm not hating on eminem. I have q tip at number 26 and I think he's one of the greatest. Anyone in the top 30 or so are one of the greatest
Where's royce da 5'9. Why is nas not 2nd? Eminem is definitely not the top 10. Top 20 at the most
IN NO ORDER
BUT THE TOP 5 IS GREAT
Big L at 19?
Insane. Amazing list bro.
Dope list. I would have had mc Shan abit higher
Slick Rick over Eminem, that's a madness
Eminem at 25? I cant take this list serious! lol
is this new???
No it's from his 2002 album God's Son.
can't wait to see you in Istanbul! it will be the best day of my life! oh and here is my list ;

It's real fucked up that when jay-z came out with takeover nas moms was dying he really had to deal with a lot in that time period.. I'm glad homie bounced back tho I lost my moms too that shit ain't no joke
This song's an inspiration to appreciate life.
How can a track from a legend like Nas, especially about his mom, NOT be a prized piece? It's art. It's poetry. It's what hip-hop is all about. Keep it sacred. Respect.
says something about today's hip hop when the top two hottest tracks came out 11 and 8 years ago.
Because everybody only listens to music he already knows

REKS, K-Rino, RA The Rugged man, are also beast. No specific orders tho.

Slow news day?
Nas the king, the prophet, and god's son all in one
it's funny every time I see someone worshipping another human being like he's god or something
it just makes me realize how people have such an low esteem of themselves
Good song Nas. Real Hip hop right here!!

Hip Hop Lesson

Canibus still spits consistent
1.R.a the rugged man

Damn. This is deep. Don't take your mother for granted. You don't know what you have until its gone. I love you mom!

1) 2 Chainz
2) Lil Wayne

4) Nicki Minaj
This song was a turning point in Nas' career. He was always known for storytelling and pure lyricism, but this song took things to a personal level and opened up a new side to Nas.
It is one of my favorite songs regardless of genre because it so raw, emotional and authentic. It also seals Nas' status as a pure genius and legendary MC. So few artists can make a song like this and touch that chord in the soul.

It's easy to say R.A. hasn't released enough albums without realizing that he is an independent artist who never broke into the industry and lacks many of the benfits Nas has from his days on top. There are more great tracks on the last two R.A. albums than all Nas albums released in the same time frame...

2. Chocolate anything
4. Arroz con gandules
5. Ice cream
Play this and then play R.A. the Rugged Man's "Legends never die ( Daddy's halo ) and tell me who the better emcee is...
WHO IS R.A ?
Nas has been dropping hot shit for years.
Life is Good
Hip Hop is Dead
Plus some average shit.
That's since 2000 alone.
R.A. has two average ass albums out in 10 years, and you say he's better than Nas? GTFO.
I respect the hell out of R.A., and he is one of the most overlooked and underrated MC's ever. However, "Legends Never Die" is a weak sample of a Beyonce song, despite great lyrics and emotional lyricism. Nas made something completely original and did a better job conveying emotion and feelings.
Sorry, it is just hard to get past that poor "Halo" re-interpretation.
Yes the album is an instant classic in my eyes and as you may have heard, the truth is in the eye of the beholder. Nas fell off. R.A got better. I didnt say R.A had a better catalog. I said he was the better emcee, and right now, he is, by far.
R.A. has two classics?? Wow, I coulda swore his second joint just came out a few weeks ago and it's already regarded as a classic??? It takes something truly special for an album to be an instant classic and right now I don't see anyone discussing that album like that, anywhere. That's the problem with fans today. So quick to jump and call their favorite artists album a classic. The word classic used to mean something, but now I don't even know.
Hip-hop is dead was classic, Untitled was near classic, Life is good was one song away from classic...r.a is genius an one of my faves, but go to a nas concert an listen to the catalog an the epicness, then go to an R.A concert an realize his catalog doesnt touch nas
It's easy to say R.A. hasn't released enough albums without realizing that he is an independent artist who never broke into the industry and lacks many of the benfits Nas has from his days on top. There are more great tracks on the last two R.A. albums than all Nas albums released in the same time frame....
Except Nas hasn't dropped a classic album in 15 years. R.A. has now dropped two in the last 10 years. Where's your logic on that one?
I see the difference in standards. Nas has to drop a classic album for it to be good. But R.A. dropping your favorite album in recent memory is good enough. Even if Nas is not dropping classics each time out, i'd rather roll with him dropping an album every other year as opposed to R.A. dropping once a decade. Nas all day!
I'm not taking anything away from Nas but I have to disagree. They both possess all the skills required. Nas takes it in the storytelling category but I'd have to give every other aspect of emceeing to R.A. Nas hasn't put out a classic album in a long time while R.A. just dropped one of my favorite albums in recent memory.
Im a huge fan of r.a but nas is still the better mc
When you overstand Life and you can put it in music, classics are created.
Nas came from apes
so did you
you fucking homos! the list goes like this
1. Lil Wayne
2. Nicki Minaj
4. Wiz Khalifa
5. Mac Miller
The top 5 lists are pretty tricky because everyone weighs different criteria differently. For example, people like nas, andre 3000, and eminem would be higher on a list that emphasizes technical ability and lyricism, while you might see biggie and pac at the top of a list that emphasizes overall impact, enjoyability, and cultural significance.
Same with jay, he's really not one of the top 5 or even top 10 rappers of all time from a technical standpoint, but he's had a huge influence and has completely dominated the game for the past decade...so it's hard not to include him. There's also ppl like jadakiss and styles p that aren't really in the industry and never get heard but are still better than what's in the mainstream.
It will be interesting to see where kendrick's career goes after showing such a promising start. It will also be interesting to see how people like 50, kanye, and wayne will be remembered long after they're gone and how much or little respect they're given.
i like how people start making lists whenever NAS drops a gem...tells me a lot
nas is the king, he never sold out
shit waek sauce
someone with a brain
This shit made me cry. Classic indeed. One of the best songs ever.
Keep making classic music like this and you'll forever be remembered as the best of the best.respect
4. BIG L
now THATS a top 5.
more like a top fifteen
Many of the top rapper lists on here are laughable but this one here is respectable. Even tho I ain't a big fan of 2Pac and Biggie, I still know they were talented artists and should be ranked somewhere near the top, no doubt.
no thats 9 alone in wu-tang. fuck a top five. to many critics.
This is amazing.
One of the best NAs songs ever
Brings back all my memories with my sweet mom
This is one of the heart touching songs ever came out of a man in history.Salute to the g.o.a.t.

this song is a timeless classic
considering your name, shouldn't biggie be num1? I mean it is his quote, and Nas is still alive.
FUCK ALL THE MOMS, FUCK MOTHERS DAY, FUK U MOM
u must have shot out of your dads asshole, you immature son of a bitch
one of my favourite songs.
Classic. Music! Y'all should checkout thegrandreport, they be having some good stuff too
My fav mom song... I feel like God's Son is a forgotten album.
You mean to say Nas sampled this from Luther...
dats dat ether
God's Son dropped 2002. Dance with my father 2003. Unless that nigga Nas got a time machine or something I highly doubt Nas sampled anything on this song to do with Luther
Luther Vandross stole the concept of this song on Dance with my father. SMH!
My comment above goes to you
RIP ma will always love you happy mothers day

Great song.... Nas is all hiphop have left!
Lord kno's I love Tupac but even he knew how Nice Nas was just ask the OutLaws... He didn't call Nas the ringleader of NYC for nothing.. I've always said that Nas, Tupac, Biggie & Jayz are the Mount Rushmore of Hiphop and to me personally The youngest one out of the fantastic 4 is the most talented and most skillful out of the 4. I salute u Nas ur the only Mc in the world who went up against Pac, Big & Jay and is still standing! Peace God..
Nas is Top 3 dead or alive,number one is my book though. Nigga is still relevant and hasn't lost a step lyrically. He did pick some shitty beats on some of his albums,but that the only slight you can give him.He has never been off point lyrically for real !!!
NAS is the greatest you're a fag
^^^ the only fag in here is u! N A S= G O A T
Massive fag alaret right here.
Nas, the greatest Ever
Just that i find myself hard pressed to Place Him above My Other absolute Favorite-Pac
This song will always be a masterpiece in every sense of the word.
Olu playing the trumpet is classic!
Nas Is The Best Rapper After PAC!
LIFE IS GOOD COPPED!
N A S = G O A T. Sorry PAC lord kno's I got love for u but the NYC Ringleader is the Greatest!

YOU WASTING A LOT OF MONEY NAS MAD A LOT OF SHITTY ALBUMS LIKE GOD SON JUST GET THE GOOD CD'S SAVE THE REST FOR OVOX CLOTHING AND TRUNKFIT
One of my favorite Nas tracks. It really pisses me off though every time I hear him say that scientist claim we came from apes. No scientist would ever tell you that. That's the blind ignorance of religion coming out of him; I hope hes grown since this.
Evolution is a crock. God created us all
N A S= G O A T
Thank you! Finally!
i co-sign with Jonathan, these brain washed religious freaks are as ignorant as a blonde. 'scientist claim we came from apes' - thats Nas saying its the scientist who said we come from apes, and then when he says, 'they lies though' thats him as Nas contesting the statement by scientist that we came from apes. so Nas is being ignorant as the rest of you with that statement coz scientist claim we share the same ancestor with Bonobo specifically. you religious folks is ignorant for real,,,,ya'll need to be more open minded
Holy fuck! You people are dumb as shit! I am an atheist and evolution is true. Religious people are always saying that scientist say "we come from apes." This is not true, it is a statement perpetrated by the religious to make evolution seem absurd. It is a false statement that they take from a context that they cannot not comprehend. We humans, like many of our other great ape counterparts, came from a common ancestor, but we did not evolve out of apes.
@ Johnothon do u just skim through the song? No.1 scientist have been saying this for decades and Nas acknowledge that it's a LIE! U fuckin dummy..
Jonathan, if you listen he said that scientist claim that we came from apes, but they're lies though.
Do my research? Seriously? The theory of evolution states that Apes and Humans have a common ancestor from which we diverged over 200,000 years ago. We did NOT evolve from apes, rather all apes (including humans)evolved from common ancestry.
Do ur research scientist have been saying that since the 1930's..
fuck i hate nas, but this song is good lol. 5 stars
co sign that Nas = GOAT from a lyricist view. We all know that Jay has had the biggest impact from a business perspective on Hip Hop than anyone.
U hate Nas cause ur insecure for ur fav rapper... Meaning if u a Hovito Stan of course u will feel some type of insecurity cause u kno deep down Nas is a better lyrical artist than Jay and that goes for the 50 Stan's ,Em Stan's, Dipshit Stan's, Canada dry Stan's and Ofcourse whoopi Goldeberg's son Weezy! Nas is the greatest Mc ever...
This is the kind of raps that separates Nas from the rest of the rappers.. He's a true artist!
Everytime I hear this song I tear up... Classic Nas!
Rip Ann jones
Get ur Nas study on. God's Son was in 02 a yr after Nas annihilated Jayz with Ether.. Streets Diciple was in 04...
God's Son was definitely one of his better albums...2004 seems like yesterday...
Thank you for posting. Had to request this track on all the other Mother's Day posts. Classic.
