    nas is such a fucking bum he'd take in the ass to get paid in 2012 funny how the guy who made the HIP HOP IS DEAD album will do literally anything with anyone to keep his name out there life is good though, right? paying off his smut ex wife every month, shelved by def jam, talking about an album that's never coming out, doing records with rick ross and tyga. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH nail in the coffin. every rapper either sold out or flat out sucks. only ppl who don't realize it are gay ass kids that were raised by blogger lames. "my style switches like a faggot" funny thing is he's losing fans and not getting new ones. ask around. nas fell off. hard.

      Nas is a fucking GOD in the hip hop community. Hands down one of the greatest, most gifted artists to ever record music. One of these days, u gotta get off his dick. I know it's gon be hard for you but just try.

    Wow, never thought that I would argue against the same rapper I was a huge fan of a long time ago. It's justified though and I have to correct myself, I'm a fan of the work he did BEFORE he fell off and gave up on him when he started to drop garbage and that pseudo-knowledge. Who told you dumb fucks to take it literally when I said 100 rappers can tear him down? Like I expected you bitches to respond intelligently when I wrote that shit. Just some shit for you fags to swallow and get angry about, because I know I hit a weak point every time I insult that human L. Yall go overboard religiously when you suck him off, so what should keep me from doing the same when I shit on that underachieving fail? LMAO. Like I'd invest the time to name 100 rappers that most of yall don't even know. Lupe got that nigga's torch when he dropped his first mixtape and made it public for retards to realize it with Food & Liquor. Dude bested him in his own lane and he's not the only one. Last but not least, I'd advise you fucks to support that nigga the way you do on the internet the day his new CD drops, nigga needs it. Badly.

      ^^^ wow get a life faggot DID NOT READ rakim >>> nas nas is not what u kids think he is. he sold out on album 3. dropped a good album with a cpl wack tracks in stillmatic, released lost tapes, which was good but a lot of old shit that was already floating around. thats when i knew he was tapped out. same nigga that dropped hip hop is dead. dropped one of the worst 2bl albums ever. did a horrible song with pac after pac dissed him when he was living. and his album did get shelved. hes been getting punked by def jam for years now. nigger album name change? shelved lost tapes 2? shelved life is good? what kinda legend runs into road blocks like that? one that doesnt take his career very seriously. also, nas is awful live, and always has been. album with damien marley was a disgrace, damien marley is a WACK artist. rick ross is a wack artist. he works with a lot of wack artists. he'll do a song about rakim before doing a song with rakim, could get beats from anyone and who does he run to for beats? salaam remi, and flavor of the month hacks like polow da don for his failed singles. sellout been washed up for 10 years now he has flashes, and his fans blow it up. most nas fans, there for illmatic, gave up long ago. like me. good luck waiting on life is good, brace for another letdown if it ever drops.

    • comachonvargas

      @ the 16 yr old dude: don't be discouraged by the Anonymous lames and that fag JJ taking digs @ Nas... you're young but your taste in hip hop isn't... and Nas made Rakim obsolete so your pops is right Now... @ Anonymous and JJ Life is Good got shelved? Yeah thats why Nasty got released [and is the most commented on track on this site with nearly a 4.9 rating], we hear about Nas getting beats from Premiere, Exile, Statik Selektah, RZA etc. for the new project... and on and on... Nas has often taken over a year to 2 years between projects so kill that got shelved bullshit... like you guys are fucking industry insiders anyways... GTFOH Nas garbage after Stillmatic? What about every track off Lost Tapes? What about every track off Godson minus dance, heaven, hey nas? What about tracks like money over bullshit, carry on tradition, black republican, still dreaming, hold down the block, hustlers, can't forget about you off HHID? What about tracks like thiefs theme, just a moment, message to the feds, sekou story, live now, reason, nazareth savage, war, UBR off Street's Disciple? What about the entire Ni**er Tape? Not to mention every feature, from Dogg Shit to Ghetto Dreams to Outro to this track, that Nas has been wrecking within the last year. Measured against Illmatic, Stillmatic, and IWW these tracks hold up. Nas may have been in his prime with those albums, but to act like he is garbage after Stillmatic is patheticly absurd. 100 rappers that would tear him apart? Ever since he demolished the so-called GOAT at the zenith of his career when people believed him to be untouchable, rappers know not to challenge Nas. From a battle rapping standpoint, many could probably hang with him and some could prevail, but thats not what we are talking about. We are talking about diss tracks, and Nas has the greatest one ever. So to claim 100 better on the basis of diss tracks is complete bullshit. How about on the basis of discography... 100 better? LOL... you could make a case for maybe 5... but put Lost Tapes, Illmatic, Stillmatic, and IWW against the best four albums of ANY MC and Nas prevails... that is the truth like it or not You don't know hip hop if you claim Nas to be the GOAT? Absolutely ridiculous. There are MCs out there who do things better than Nas for sure... Em/AZ have more complicate rhyme schemes, Jay's flow is more versatile at times, Lupe can reach the poignance of his stories and the creativity of his concepts, Scarface has more street credibility, etc. You can make a case for a good 20 MCs to be the GOAT. But the BEST case can be made for Nas. Consistent, vivid, and cinematic-quality lyricism, the most eclectic and diverse selection of content/subject matter, the best storyteller, the most innovative concepts, the repeated risk-taking, and above all the best discography. Add to that the most influence over all the other GOAT MCs, including BIG, Pac, Em, and especially Jay. Ra shitted on Nas because he recognized him as a failure? LOL... Nas did a tribute to Ra and he was salty about it. Why would that be? It's because Nas improved so much on the precedent Rakim set for lyricism that Nas made Ra obsolete. Why didn't Ra do more to help Nas when he was coming up? Why didn't Ra help him get a deal? Ra knew in 94 that Nas was a more improved version of himself. And Ra is jealous of Nas' success, both critically and commercially. Ra never sold like Nas, nor had the critical acclaim that Illmatic, Lost Tapes, or Stillmatic had. Nas evolved as an artist and is still @ the top of the game 20+ years in. Ra? He is irrelevant. Everybody knows that shit about Ra anyways. It ain't hard to tell that Ra is just pissed cause his name never comes up when discussing the GOAT, but Nas always does Like it or not, Nas, more than any other rapper, exemplifies why hip hop should be considered with every other genre of music. Introspective reflections, street anthems, messages of hope, betterment, positivity, gritty street stories, wisdom on relationships, family, honesty about past failures, entire track metaphors and creative concepts, evolving as a person and rap artist, and on and on. Nas embodies all these things, and much more. You fucking losers can like other MCs and realize that Nas is a legend and deserves to be respected as such, right? You know you can like more than one rapper, right? Or is at that Ether that still burns after 10+ years? Catch you faggots next time around. You think someone else is above Nas? Fine... MAKE A BETTER ARGUMENT... bet you dollars to donuts you can't... so stay whining about delusional Nas fans in the meantime... ever thought maybe it was you who has no idea what you are talking about? ONE

      God damn, this dude has more knowledge about Hip Hop than all of you irrational cocksuckers with favorite hobby offensive dickriding combined. Nas is borderline garbage now and released nothing but laughable trash since Stillmatic. People always talk about his gimmicks, never about his actual music. To say Nas is the best ever shows your huge lack of knowledge about Hip Hop. There's 100 rappers out that would tear him down with ease. You dudes are beyond retarded. There's a reason Rakim shitted on that walking fail several times.

Go back and listen to the Outlaws and u hear them say how Pac loved Nas style... Now go check Bigs first album cover and tell me illmatic didn't inspire the Ready to Die album cover. Ghost face said it best "niggas, niggas is bitein Nas shit.. Now as for Jayz nigga pleasssse ask urself why that nigga bit bigL style.. Shit Jay bites everybody styles from Big to Pac, Nas etc.. U kno that nigga stole mad verses from niggas... And as for the old Em and old Snoop u think they can fuck with the old Nas???? Hahahaha. Them niggas ain't no 16 yr old kid from queensbridge!!! That's on my word...

    Nas probably got him, but you Nas stans have such an inferiority complex you still want to prove some sort of point to someone who generally agrees with you. All I hear cats say about Takeover is that they like it better than Ether. That's their opinion. Just like this whole Jay vs. Nas shit is opinion. Y'all niqqas can throw the word fact around all you want it doesn't change the fact that it's opinion. People go overboard and use words like "annihilation". Jay is like 5 times bigger now than he was then so thats a pretty ass-backwards annihilation. Just the fact that Nas came back with a diss track and made it interesting and showed he didn't fear Jay saved his career. Irrational cocksuckers like the people on this site want to equate opinion with fact. The majority of people might've sided with Nas back then, but that still doesn't make the opinion that Nas won a fact. It's funny how you insecure fucks only champion popular opinion when it suits your agenda, any other time popular opinion be damned. Popular opinion says that Jay-Z makes better music than Nas and has pretty much always done so, but let a Jay-Z "Stan" try and use Jay-Z's record sales and popularity to try and prove that him being better than Nas is a fact. This shit comes down to personal opinion, there is no right or wrong answer. Your opinion of Nas winning is no more factual than some white boy saying that Eminem is the best rapper alive. Just because the majority may side with a particular opinion doesn't make the opinion fact.

    Nas groupies are always trying to revisit history with their biased ass opinions. Nobody rides harder, delusional and more blindly. Let's put an end to this shitty debate. We all know why people have it in their mind that Nas won. The Hip Hop heads wanted Jay to fall around that time so badly that they put all their hopes into Nas when that beef happened. Jay's ego was getting outta control and his career was at a point where he was turning into a symbol of hate, because people associated money and the industry with him and the streets with Nas. The more money and success Jay had, the more credit he lost by Hip Hop fans because we all know how fickle and bitchlike people react to that. They wanted Nas to win and that's what happened in their minds. Jay never had a change, regardless of how good Takeover might've been and lost before they even started, people side with underdogs and he underestimated that factor. Jay is lightyears ahead of Nas in every aspect of rapping and life. People see that Nas has nothing over him and force themselves to believe that Jay has to be inferior in rap, which is far from the truth actually. And let's not forget that you guys give Nas a HUGE pass for turning down that challenge to a face to face battle, traditional hip hop style, proceeds going to charity, that Jay issued. Traditional hip hop? Proceeds going to charity? Those are two of Nas favorite things, just one of countless example for the fucked up perception of Nas.

      @ anonymous, you are clearly a kid who knows no more than what you hear other people talking about. you certainly never heard 'people talking'. ether was tight but thats ONLY because he resorted to personal insults and silly made up stories instead of saying something thats actually factual about Jay unlike takeover where Jay clearly talking about how Nas was really a has-been (and yes, at the time, he certainly was - the beef saved his career and to prove that, once it ended, he faded again) and how he is a fake with made up stories of being a hustler (go ahead, show me proof that Jay was lying). Personally ether just sounded to me like when you're having an argument with someone, and you're saying real things that hurt and the person doesnt know what to say so he resorts to insulting you with 'fool', 'bastard', 'asshole' etc because he's got nothing else to say to you.

  • MBTM

    Time to end this G.O.A.T. foolishness. In this constant debate about Jay-Z being the best ever I read things like "Nas will destroy Jay-Z" or "Eminem got a better flow than Jay" Those are OPINIONS. When will you fools learn that you can't win a debate with OPINIONS. Every rapper has a different style based on where they are from, the time period in which they were most successful, and their unique personality. We all can go on for days about our personal preferences but in a debate criteria like this is completely IRRELEVANT and automatically BIASED. The only way to win a debate is with cold hard FACTS. And the fact of the matter is that, when you weigh all of the tangible criteria (Sales, Critical Acclaim, Consistency, Longevity, and Impact) Jay-Z makes the strongest case for the G.O.A.T. Eminem has sold nearly twice as much as Jay-Z, and he is Jay's equal when it comes to longevity and impact. But Em lacks the consistency or critical acclaim that Jay-Z has (Im not talkin cult/fanboy classics, Im talkin CERTIFIED classics. XXL/Rolling Stone/Source approved) Eminem is VERY close though. Nas has enjoyed more critical acclaim and more overall respect in the hip-hop community through the years. And he's definitely equal to Jay with longevity and impact. But he hasn't been no where near as much of a consistent presence in hip-hop as Jay has. And he is obviously lacking in the sales department. Lil Wayne just may be the most consistent rapper of all time. He's no slouch when it comes to longevity and impact either. His glaring flaw? In his 12 year career Lil Wayne has yet to drop a truly critically acclaimed classic album (and it can be done in this climate. just look at kanye's discography). Also, contrary to popular beleif, Wayne lacks in the sales department. Sure, Tha Carter III and IV are blockbuster albums, but his OVERALL sales of 10 mil US pale in comparison to Jay-Z's 31 mil. 2pac is a touchy subject. When it comes to impact, pac takes the cake. No other rapper touched the world like 2pac did. He, like Em, has also sold more than Jay and he was very consistent in his time. Sadly, 2pac passed before his time which allowed Jay-Z to surpass him in longevity and critical acclaim. LL Cool J was the prototype for what a G.O.A.T. could be. He has enjoyed the most longevity, and he was fairly consistent, but his sales, acclaim and overall impact are no where near the likes of 2pac, Eminem, and ofcourse Jay-Z. Biggie, Rakim, Common, Snoop, the list goes on. All of these MC's are great but none of them have the total G.O.A.T. package like Jay-Z does. Jay-Z is the 3rd highest selling rapper of all time, and the richest. He's one of the most acclaimed (perhaps only rivaled by his boy Kanye). He dropped multi-platinum albums YEARLY from 96'-03', and he is still going strong today. He's been in the game since 88'. He's impacted hip-hop in countless ways from starting one of the 1st successful MC-owned record labels, to being the 1st non-athlete with a signature shoe, to surpassing the likes of Elvis with #1 albums. Jay-Z is without question the Greatest MC Of All Time. Period. You don't have to listen to him everyday (Im currently on my Kendrick wave). You don't even have to like him. But for goodness sake, RESPECT THE FACTS.

Calling the guy who's 1000 leauges above him a camel and gay to appeal his immature fans, that nigga was fucking desperate. The highlight of the biggest underwhelming career ever that promised so much more with Illmatic. If it wasn't for that album as his debut, Nas would be Ja Rule status right now. LeBron James of rap. You got people saying Nas won? Really? How retarded can one delusional mind be? Jay literally saved Nas' ending career after that disaster known as Nastradamus/I Am, gave him the exposure of his life, what did Nas do with that? Dropped one hot album and came back with nothing but weed plates. Jay went on to sell millions of records, produced hit after hit, sold out stadiums, while Nas rocks in front of 200 people in a shitty ass club. Jay signed him and showed the world what a spineless motherfucker the guy who never sold drugs and had the nerve call himself Escobar, who layed down the blueprint for fags like Rick Ross really is.

      "You can't get mad if you say number one, you put out a record and then Jay-Z puts out one," KRS said in an interview. "That's honor, that's respect because you call yourself the teacher. If I put out the first Blueprint, and then Jay-Z decides to name his next three albums The Blueprint, you can only look at that as respect in hip-hop and it actually signifies the unity of hip-hop all together...you could compare this all the way across the board [with other rappers]. You're finally getting to see hip-hop's culture, not the rap music industry. Ask yourself this question too, with all the money that Jay-Z has, why does he still have to rap? Why does he still have to rap? He has to rap because he is hip-hop. He is the culture himself..." KRS-One But yeah, Jay bit that tile, hahahaha.

Like Jay being afraid to respond to a single diss from ANY MC regardless of their skill since Ether? THOSE ARE FACTS. Not disputable. Now; piss poor lyricism on this track? LOL. This one verse alone exceeds anything Jay has done since Black Album, and any real Jay fan, myself included, know that the dude has fallen the fuck off. Not disputable once again. LOL at finding this kind of vividness and imager on WTT. GTFOH. Jay saved Nas' career? So Jay dissed Nas with the main objective of reviving his career huh? YOU ARE A FUCKING MORON. Jay wanted the top spot and Nas stood in his way after BIG departed. That is not disputable. Jay claimed that the diss revived Nas' career only to save face after getting demolished. The whole line is a cop out. Then he claimed Nas' owed him royalties for the sales that Stillmatic earned. Bitch please. Nas hasn't sold millions since Stillmatic? Nas hasn't dropped great albums like Godson, HHID, Distant Relatives? Nas rocks in front of 200 people LOL. You are just perpetuating the bullshit 'oh Jay sold more and is more successful so therefore he won' nonsense. GTFOH once again. Nas was desperate? DESPERATE IS TRYING TO DEGRADE A MAN'S CHARACTER BY INSULTING HIS BABY'S MOTHER, THEN BEING FORCED TO RECANT ON THE RADIO BECAUSE YOUR MOMMY TOLD YOU IT WAS IN BAD TASTE. LOL desperate. GTFOH one last time. Nas would be Ja Rule status without Illmatic huh? So I guess Ja also dropped IWW, Stillmatic, Lost Tapes, and Godson as well right? FUCKING FAIL ONE

      It was Written is nas's true classic. I Totally agree. Nas is like jay in that they both never could duplicate their first albums (RP and Ill) It was written is like the blueprint of nas. its bomb. Even lupe thinks IT WAS WRITTEN was better than illmatic.

      I8 yrs later and rappers are still biting Nas illmatic album cover... Smh

  • NastyNas

    Nas released Illmatic as an 18 year old. No famous guest appearences, the outcome? He's crowned the best lyricist. That's exactly why, because he set the bar so high, he was never going to reach those heights again for a few years. Stillmatic was a dope album because this was a diss album basically to Jay. After, as he's grown up, his consistancy has gone back up. Hip Hop is Dead was a dope album. Stillmatic was a dope album. Nigger aka Untitled was a dope album, not to forget God's son. Thing is, people are comparing Jay and Nas still, but that beef was squashed almost 4 or 5 years ago. People are saying Jay's better cause he's made more dough, but Nas is better because he's more lyrical. Both are true.However Nas is an Emcee, Jay-Z is an business man. You can't compare a business man to an Emcee. And people also talking about how Nas fell off for a couple of years. But Jay-Z has only had 3 real good albums really. Reasonable Doubt, The Black Album and Blueprint. After that, he's not really made a dope dope dope album.

This was by far one of Hip Hop's worst eras and should be so in every Hip Hop fan's book.

    • conachonvargas

      ^^^Either anonymous The I am/Nastradamus time period is Nas' weakest yes, but one of Hip Hop's worst eras? See that is bullshit. Take I am; Ny state of mind pt II, hate me now, ghetto prisoners, you won't see me tonight, nas is like, undying love, the X/Scarface joints are good - great tracks all across the board. Thats at least 50% of the tracks being solid, hardly deserving of the 'worst era ever' characterization. Nastradamus is definitely underrated, but nevertheless is Nas' worst CD. With solid tracks like family, new world, project windows, come get me, shoot em up, and Nastradamus, I still think the 'worst ever' charge is way too severe. What is so absurd about Nas' critics is that they often discount Illmatic when measuring Nas against other MCs, but never fail to use it to degrade the other albums in his discography. IWW is a perfect example; panned at its inception, this album may very well be his greatest album and has become to be appreciated by many as just that. But you still hear that 'shit was alright but not as good as Illmatic' criticism thrown around for it as well as every other Nas album. Illmatic is widely regarded as the best hip hop album of all time right? That being so, why isn't every album not by Nas compared to Illmatic and rated accordingly? Why should only Nas be subjected to the exceptional standard created by his earlier work? Nas fans know that Nas faces the highest scrutiny of any MC. That is the hard truth point blank period. That is partly why they can forgive the lower points in his career like the I am/nastradamus periods. Put Jay under this same level of scrutiny during the Vol 1 - Vol 3 phases. Vol 3 is a straight weed plate, worse than Nastradamus and overlooked only because of the commercial success of Big Pimpin. Vol 2 is decent, solid but really the same quality as I am. And Vol 1 is pretty solid with the exceptions of Sunshine and what girls like, the latter track being perhaps the wackest in Jay's career [act like you disagree lol... only Young Forever is worse]. That being said, IWW shits all over Vol 1. You could very well argue that IWW is better than RD btw. Lastly, Nas fans understand that adding some of the Lost Tapes tracks to I am would have catapulted that album to very good status at the worst, classic status at best. Were the latter to be true, Nas would have three classics in a row to his credit. Hardly warrants the 'worst ever era' label. Bottom line: harp on your subjective 'worst era ever' idea all you want... the 'best era ever' label applies for Illmatic, IWW, Stillmatic, Lost Tapes, and Godson [fuck it why not]. See how your favorite rapper stacks up against that shit. ONE

How can u make a diss like 'ether' then turn around and shake hands with the same dude who you adamantly referred to as a homosexual. And nobody, including Nas or Jay themselves, can convince me that the beef was nothing more than just a casual hiphop feud where 2 rappers were merely sizing eachother up for the sake of hiphop. Dude said he had sex with his wife and left condoms in his kid's baby seat. Both of them got on some real personal shit. But it wasn't even like they both compromised on equal terms by squashing beef. Jay was def jam's CEO at the time. Jay signed Nas. Nas got shelved.

But on another note... How the fuck can you tell me JayZ wasn't CEO when you don't even know... cuz he definately was CEO of Def Jam. Look it up if you have to, retard. You're clearly uncertain about your facts nigga. I see no other reason why you would try to correct me on some petty shit like distinguishing the difference between wife and "Baby Mama" (as you put it). The kid's his and her kid - thats all that matters in the point I made. And you trying to outline the definition of being "shelved" is just ridiculous. Def Jam didnt give nas exposure or even permit him to release a certain album that he wanted out. And how many albums did nas release out of Def Jam?... Exactly. Those are clear-cut examples of being shelved. LA reid didnt give a fuck about him. Jay didnt give a fuck about him. It was a mufuckin set up. And Lost Tapes 2 wasnt gonna be an album full of old joints. get your shit straight. So while you argue for the sake of your favorite rapper, consider the fact that he does not give a fuck about you or your loyalty to him. He only signed to Def jam for the money and only cares about your money regardless of your devotion to him. bitch nigga btw..... "Callin a dude a fag on a diss track is a way of life in the hood"

Nas cant have a 'solo' album that features more than 4 features to 12 [Lil Wayne/Rick ross & Kanye can]. Different artists with different appeal live with it..... Any Greatest HipHop List even for the next 20years that doesnt have 2Pac, Nas, BIG, Rakim, JayZ on the list will sound retarded.

      Amen Brother, There are too many bias assholes with their mouths wide open sayin' nothing important, out here with trying to force people to like what they feel is music when it's nothing but trash, and to all you losers on here disrespecting a Hip Hop God like Nasir every time he makes a mistake need to get a life.

    Here comes the Anonymous digs 'oh shit 2 frauds on the same track.' Nas gets with the production team responsible for probably the hottest beat of 2011 [Aston] and dudes still claim his beat selection is awful lol. And this beat bangs btw. You zombie cornballs regurgitate the beat selection criticism time after time like Nas has monkeys on the casio behind the boards. It has been justified before, big fucking deal. Get a new line because that shit is becoming less and less justified for Nas. Very exaggerated all and all. Corey/G Rap/Rakim/GZA painted pictures 20 years ago with much more skill than what Nas did here? Likely story, so go ahead and stick with your delusional opinion that the artists themselves would likely disown. And name the tracks supporting your assertion while you are at it. And what have any of those dudes done lately, besides try to dig Nas because they're jealous of his success and standing as an undeniable GOAT contender [see Mega and Ra after Nas did his tribute]? Oh thats right. They haven't done shit. Lastly, let me call special attention to the cockscarfer who said 'oh shit you dudes used to listen to 50 then found Nas and decided he was the best ever.' Lol you can't be serious with that bullshit. I have listened to it all, from Jay to Kane to Big L to Pun to Pac to De la Soul to Kweli to Scarface etc. etc. That being said, Nas rubs shoulders with any single one of them anyday of the week, particularly 20+ years into their careers. And all those names I mentioned? Yeah everyone would call Nas a legend. In fact, as far as emcees go, you really can't have a credible opinion about GOAT MCs unless you include Nas. Therefore, your 'you guys listened to 50' thesis is complete and utter bullshit. You lames trying to diss Nas are like the dudes getting parking cones shoved up their asses in Billy Madison then claiming they aren't losers. A new look is needed. TRUST ME ONE

      ^^^true. How haters hate and try to drag NAS of the perch eludes me. Every mcee and the best lyricists in tha game [MosDef, Talib, Black Thought, Pharoah, Grand Puba of BrandNubian, Qtip, Eminem, Jeru tha Damaja] acknowledge Nas's Rap. Even 50cent who toured and was promoted by before ya lame asses knew him said Nas is one of the greatest besides their beef. Nas Stans make over the hill praises only coz haters make down the trench unfounded criticism. Give respect where its due.

      Real Talk, especially the part with the beat selection. That has to be one of the biggest myths I've EVER heard of. Hip Hop Is Dead was beautiful front to back and Untitled and Distant Relatives aren't far behind.
