love it..nas just killin it everything..and knaan came thru and kept up in the 2nd verse, good stuff..
If you don't give this a good rating you're a cold hearted muthafucka.
Nice nasir came hard as always K'naan did his thing nice
hook is wack as fuck,,, nas needs better producers and better hooks
but that's his style. he motivates his people
Fuck the hook K'naan did his thing... Nasir ripped it!
K'naan and Nas murdered this song as always, but I could listen to the hook all day long. SERIOUSLY
nice, nasir still at it.
i knew this was gonna crank
Nas is killen everything in sight!
nas killed it
Check out this new boston rapper named Penny
U racist!! Nas true King!
Any white person > NAS > Africa and all Black Monkeys
AB knows the deal. fuck your skin color, your country of origin, your religious beliefs, or anything else that makes you different from me. time to fucking wake up people, we are all human, and didn't you listen to nas' album with damien marley?? we are all distant relatives, we've just moved around and changed/adapted to our surroundings.. do you, i'll do me, and get the fuck over it.
kill that race shit, music has no color.
Eminem needs to get hung! That whiteboy's rap game is terrible now.. Fuckin piece of shit cracker.... Nas the great u fag !
That's the problem with these niggas. They can rap, but using their talent to craft actual songs? Nah. Take some lessons from Jay.
Jay is the biggest Nas fan on earth.
I was in Carnegie Hall checking for Hov and that nigga bought out Nas and the place went Bananas.... Jayz knew word for word Nas lyrics... We all know Jayz always admired Nas rap skills..
Why if jay is still taking lessons from Nasir!
K'naan's second verse has the same flow as his verse on TV In the Radio...the song's okay, but far from amazing...
is that kelly clarkson on the hook? shit was weak
Haha, seriously man. Dope versus but that hook is horrible. Just get Preemo to through a couple cuts on the hook and your good to go.
& u shot urself twice.. Nigga shut the fuck up we don't believe you!
Cry yourself to sleep, you fucking clown.
Good song, chorus and all.
Nas is cool on this beat...K'naan was soft, I'm getting tired of him.
word. nigga gets raped on every track.
im tired of nas dick riders. K'naan did a way better job then nas... Nas had rhymes i could get from watching justin bieber's freestyles he needs to stop
Fuckin hell, can i get the song without the rubbish weak sauce chorus please?
@ M, who says rubbish" in hiphop? Lol shut the fuck up and listen to greatness!
Lmao @ Nas gets raped in every song.. U shot urself twice to? Lmaooo gtfoh Nas is the nigga left... Sorry Camel stans and Em Stan's, 50, Stan's and Weezy Stan's.. Lol
Shit Was Raw Just Dont Like The Hook,
K'Naan sound like one of dem kids from digable planet.
K'Naan is killin it. Big up Toronto!
Nigg@% dreaded seeing me, like Rastafarians
New feel this #ILL
NAS The is Best, Knaan is killing this track. Simply good music ,on some feel good 4 1/5
Nas is a fuckin beast hands down he's still the best Mc since 94... Even when Big and Tupac was alive Nas was the best...
WHIPE YOUR MOTHERFUCKIN MOUTH:
SO MR NASIR JONES IS GONNA BLESS US WITH ANOTHER VERSE THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME FOR ALL ENTERNITY WE WILL HAVE TO ENGRAVE THE LYRICS TO A STONE TABLET AND SHOOT IT OUT TO SPACE SO AFTER THE PLANET IS DESTROYED.IT WILL FALL BACK TO EARTH AND WE CAN PRAISE AND PRESERVE HIS LYRICAL HOLYNESS.
Nas might got one flow but His verse still go hard.
Lmao@ Nas only got one flow.... Youngins I swear"....
NAS only got one flow?? You must only have on brain cell
Thanks for that great comment, Big Dan. One dude with knowledge. And yes, Nas is still one of the best.
I love Nas, "Life's a Bitch" is one of my all time favorite tracks and "It Was Written" is one of the best rap albums ever in my opinion, but yes, it does seem like he has just one flow. He doesn't ride a track, going as the track dictates, he rhymes the Nas way regardless of the track. If he sounds like he is rhyming differently-- someone mentioned "Purple", "NY State Of Mind", "Get Down", it is because of the different speed of the track. It's his tempo that's different, not his delivery. It's like he has a way of speaking that always shows up when he is rhyming. Love the guy though, definitely one of the best, so no need for Stans to get their panties all up in a bunch.
he prolly 13 no biggy
^This dude never heard "Purple", "NY State Of Mind", "Get Down", "One Mic", "Halftime"... and on and on and on and on
Aside from a louder or more quiet delivery, he doesn't have one. Compare his to that of a guy like Eminem and see the difference. He can't keep up with a beat like this.
Damn, this shit was crack! K AND Nas MURDERED this! 5 no question!
Don't mention Eminem name in the same sentence as Nas!
cool track, and yes nas killed it
This is SHIT whos votin it 4.45 ?
I'm sure Nas did not invent the word. KRS has a track that was produced by Diddy's Hitmen and in it, he is saying he doesn't ride any rappers nut sacks and I'm sure I have heard the same elsewhere, earlier, just can't recall it now. Now it is possible Nas summarized the concept of riding someone else's whatever into one word, don't know, but its not his idea.
Poop, actually, it just occurred to me that KRS might have said that on East West Coast Killers, a song by Dr Dre that ft KRS, Nas and B Real. So yeah, definitely, that's where Nas got it from.
Wasn't the word Dickrider created for the first time by Nas in ether? Lol. U hate Nas but u quote his word.. Lmaooo. Nasty Nas is true king !
Nas' dickriders. They vote 5 as soon as they see his name and have the nerve to call someone else dickriders.
I love Nas, but K'naan outdid him badly flowwise on this one.. Straight up K AKed this one
Promblem is, Nas only got one flow. Always been one of his biggest weaknesses. Fast and slow don't count.
My problem is mostly that Nas is using his standard flow whereas K'naan is tailorsuiting his to go with the beat. Tribal war is a way better effort from the both of them though... Plus the hook is daaaamn annoying.
Agreed. Nas was inferior on this one.
@ skylivedk: I love K'aann also but to say he outdid Nas is reaching.... Nice radio joint..
Amazing track, glad to see some new music outta him. Nas did his thing oh it to! 5/5
Nas only got one Flow? These fuckin youngins need a hiphop 101 course... Nasty Nas tru king!
Nas killed it!
nas is too nastyy, he be killin em.
CLASSIC!!!!!!!!!, NAS NEVER DISAPPOINT ME
Nas the king of hip hop
This song is so sick.
Lame, Tribes At War destroys this.
Lyrics tight, but beat & hook are pretty weak.. this needs a remix with a different hook.
His raps should be locked in a cell it aint hard to tell... Nasty Nas in ur area....
Nas......................... Any body who ever picked up a microphone!
K'aann did his thing and Nas rips it once again.. Nasir is killen everything....
Nas to real Nas is true King!
its however you feel gohead you swing
Nas is fuckin incrediable!
Nas is a street poet the best to ever do it..
nas is just too dope, never fell of after been 20 years in the game, hes the greatest.
The hook ain't bad.. Nice radio song and Nas is still the illest.
This song is good Knaan alwayz been dope and Well Nas is Nas!
Dammm Nas is to ill! The best to ever do it!
yo wtf i thought this was guna be a fuckin banger and it was decent until that hook came in
Wack ass beat. even worse chorus.
stick to your roots k'naan.
Kannan sounds like a Retard Refuge on this Track !
Does DX generate these comments for a track related to Nas before they appear on this site? God damn.
oh the great and holy nas has blessed us with another historical verse.
You hit the nail on the head, haha.
song is nice
This shit dope! Nas is on his ish! K'naan stay on point. I like his fusion of sound...
last verse was clean the hook is too pop-y but its straight
K'naan is Betta then most of ur fav rappers.. Nas is fuckin King and he never lost!
I hope all these racist comments were written by the same person because otherwise there's a lot of racism on this site.
It's always sad to see that the Hip-Hop community is every bit as much racist as the power structure it once fought against. You guys are fuckin' losers man...
i fell you homie. i've been to asian. i've been to europe, and, last but not least... america. your know what the most pop music everyone begs for?.... hip hop. it's true.
i fell you homie. i've been to asian. i've been to europe, and, last but not least... america. your know what the most pop music is that everyone begs for?.... hip hop. it's true.
damn. this is dope! flows are crazy and beat is simple and effective!
Thats heat!! Africans are up on their hiphop game, check this dude out http://www.datpiff.com/FootPrynce-Footprynce-Of-A-Freeking-mixtape.305620.html
dis joint s kuul but d@ NIGGER made it samtin else.i mean GOOD
ARE WE LISTENING TO THE SAME TRACK, Lyrically most rappers aren't even close to Knaan.Forget his nationality for a second and just LISTEN.

I think he has a job fool! C'mon the way you talkin don't sound like the BX I know.
K'naan is a great artist and is famous around the world. You gotta respect this brother
yo bitch nicca, shut-up..dude is from the worst war torn country in the world, and hes' doing betta thn ur bitch ass...suck a dick...
K'naan is Betta then 90% of the American rappers.. Nas still the real KING!
U can say that again... Nas true king!
King? That's the last thing I'd associate Nas with. Not a dude who took so many L's in his personal life and rap career.
grap straight bullshit go back to somalia new york dont like your punk ass -
the struggle continues...
go back to sfrica you cant rap your from somalia son go back to africa - ur st8 shit - go make me a song about nelson mandela and playin with lion u wack son!!! new york baby

We all know why u mad.
aint this knaan a somali how a somali rapping son - listen this fool - how he going to tell me anything hes a somali -scum- straight up scum
k naan and Nas classic colabo
eminem > jay-z
eminem > 2pac
NaS eminem tight draw
but to me nas is goat
Mariah Carey > Nick Cannon>Eminem
MC arguments aside. This was one of the coolest songs I seen posted in a long time. "Chucks and the Charlotte Hornets Cap" ... haha thats style.
knaan ft the goat indeed
K'naan ft the Goat.... Sick track!
Dope track.. Nasty Nas in ur area...
Nas, Big, Pac and Jayz the best to ever do it in hiphop! Eminem is overrated....
And Black Thought is the most UNDERRATED
This joint is cool... K'aann did his thing and what more can I say if Nas ain't the best then who is?
Sick song, hope this plays on the radio.
Song is nice. Nas greastest of all time no doubt, still killin it. Not really feeling this tho
nas is the greatest
i agree. a latter verse from nas would've finessed it.
genius can be taught- don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
then? please. don't try and maneuver me into some petty ass regurgitated bs. i'm a fan of nas.
@ this corny ass hiphop citizen dickhead if u haven't heard that Nas is the illest then now u have.
apparently i didn't hear the same thing you did.
Nas is king fuck what u heard!
This will be a little jinggle on the raido hey, hot 97 will play this about 80 times a day
Nas one of the only real rapper left...
Nas is on top of his game damn.
Damn Nas is doing his thing right now.
Still owns me 50% of whatever he makes
Jay Z lost his virginity to me
Fuck that nigga Nas, he still wack.
Hey Jay, I know this is hard to swallow but Nas is the dad
this nigga Nas has time to get on a track with this dirty Somalian but won't get in the Lab with me?
Alright Nas, I AIN'T GIVING U NO MORE BEATS
Nas is the greastest ever
Fuck off Kelis, he needs to pay me before i take his ass back to court
nas killed it so dod knaan, two great artist, nas does not get enough credit for his innovations in hiphop.
knaan reminds me of lupe , the way he flows
yea, on this song
And does nas really need to say he paid all his dues, ummm you been around 20 years I dont think his dues was in question.
No doubt Nas is on top of his game. He really needs put put that album out though.
He's been on like 12 songs last year and 2 this year. DROP IT NAS!!!!!
Good track, however, I have no respect for Nas. He does the exact opposite of the messages of his music. Nigga went to a party when he was obligated to do a show in Africa, fuck Nas.
Stfu!!!!!! Nas is the best.. People say this and that about him, but truth be told Nasir is the Beat!!!!
You don't even know all the details behind him not showing making the trip to africa for his show so STFU. And most rappers are walking contradictions so both of yall stfu!
Nas does not give 2 shits about your respect...he has performed in AFRICA a few times before. Haters NEVER prosper!
Dude is one walking contradiction.
nas seems to be rappin a lot better lately. hopefully he takes his time and makes a good cd

2011-2012 NaS is NaS at his best again. I mean Untitled and Distant Relatives were good, but NaS lyrically has returned to his old stuff. Great. Also pretty good song although awful hook.
EXCEPT FOR THE HOOK *GARBAGE*
I was fellin it until the chorus
K'Naan destroyed Nas with ease, but the dickriders will lie to themselves again.
You gotta step your game up when you're on a song with Nas. Ka'naan got off, but he 8nt see Nasir!
crack is bad for you
both of you sound dumb. they were both sick
Shut Da Fuck Up Bitch. Nas Killed iT wit Eased

yo Knaan killed this track..afcourse the 3 letter words that spell N A S always killing it.. dope 5/5
Nas is the best in the game, I don't care what anyone says. Fuck Jay-Z
^^^ and Dej Jam had Less than 20meaningful Hiphop cats on the roaster @ the time
LL Cool J
oh and Jay too......lol
Beef been dead years ago..
Nas said its not like i'm going to Def Jam as an employee i brought something to the table and they said lets talk. I'm better than 20dudes on the lable
Jay Z in response said "You cant sign an emcee like Nas, thats impossible" You make a deal thats the only way to go.
Stans say ....Yada yada all day
Never heard of Black Republican? Most epic track ever.
Jay and NaS are both great.. you stans still stuck in 2001... THE BEEF IS OVER. NAS SIGNED TO DEF JAM WHEN JAY-Z WAS RUNNING IT.
Ahum, the beef is over...
dont really like the song, but will give it 4 just coz nas killed, dude is just eating every track he'son, damn...
I'm jealous of you.
How come you so beautiful, smelling fresh
Youthful, intelligent, while I'm stressing and shit
Hey yo, I envy you cause all you do is smile and things come you way
Such an innocent child, is what some say
I get upset cause I just wanna be treated the way you are, like a star
Not a worry in this world thus far
But wait a minute, we both need your mothers attention
I must be crazy jealous of my own baby infant
Nas - book of rhymes
Yes. Nas is the man. Hands down
Nasir ur the fuckin man!!!!!!
crap chorus but other than that it's good
yet another track where Nas goes HAM..but this time the challenger (Knaan) made it very close..to close to call. Both Dope 5/5 dope verses
yo Nas been on a tear lately name a track he didnt destroy for over 2yrs now?? Nas the greatest period hands down..Wow that Knaan dude hella dope his 2nd verse made it close..I say this the only track where nas didnt blow a rapper off the track..Much respect to Knaan
haha thats what ive been thinking, he hasnt had a weak verse in a loong time, dude is hungry..just wish we can get that album soon, it must be ridiculous...
Thoz 2 r my niggaz right thurr. Luv da song bruh! 1
Wassup mayne, did I disrespec ya? Naw, I didnt thank so. So y u disrepectn me nigga?
ayo wtf fuck is thurrrr asshole its thuuuunnnnnnnnn get ya shit right dick head
ill track. big up tdot. big up nas
yyyyyyyyyyyyoooooooooooooooooooooooo Nas & Knaan dude daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam. fucking dope!!!!!!!!!!! so happy Nas showed love to knaan dude. I admit thought Nas bodied that track but Knaan 2nd verse was OMG.. damn both destroyed the beat RESPECT!!!!!!!!
Knaan is dope! Much respect!!
Nas is as close as it gets to Hip Hop at it's finest
Some hip hop fans are ignorant. Nas is dope and this song with K'Naan is pretty damn good. K'Naan is NOT a reggea artist. K'Naan is a great artist and Nas is a rear talent in hip hop...thank God for his humbleness because his haters are insane.
Why does hip-hop insist on selling it's soul to Top 40 pop?? examples: this song, Eminem/Royce "Lighters", Eminem/Dr. Dre "I Need a Doctor", Obie Trice "Battle Cry", HipHopDX even listing Justin Bieber under their audio singles, the list goes on
ARE YOU GUYS IDIOTS??? This is why people who don't know hiphop will never take you seriously. cause You say the real is fake and yet so-sign the same Bullcrap your supposed to be against
There is nothing wrong with a rapper trying to reach out to a wider audience. It's not about us hip hop fans all of the time, they gotta think about their families and careers too. Hip hop fans are so damn selfish!
yea this beat is corny, the hook plus, to bad musicians can be influenced by all other pop artist.
for real... what happened the last 10 years.... ol' school Shyne was the very last great Gangsta Rapper... and now he's a kyke

Nas is the best hands down. Who could think jay is better?
I'm not trying to start debates or nothing but nas got the smoothest flow and voice. And lyrics and all that
Life is GOOD (hopefully July 2012)
Nas destroys Jays flow!
Nas is great, but a better flow than Jay? Nah, nobody can flow better than that nigga.
Life is good is one of the worst Album titles for a Rap Artist, come on, i love nas but i hope he changes the title.
Boss, read my comment and read yours. I'm talking about the music
Your talking about the man. Trust me you only know what the media
That shit wasn't nas' fault. But they make it seem that way. Truth is neither of us know for sure what happened with that promoter. We hear nothing cause it was most likely resolved
Do you realize how many people nas supports? Not
Just himself and his family. He always gives to the hood. To people in need. Personally. That's a great thing to do man
He don't live his life for money. He is an artist. A poet
My opinion at least.
All Nas is, is a dude who think he wise but looking at his life you just shake your head and say "I Understand you man" and than walk away shaking your head saying "I aint listening to that nigga, don't even got his life together"..Nas words are great motivation and the essence of hiphop yet his actions and life issues contradict all that he says in his song...Ask the the promoter who went to Africa and never came back..
Ya'll be hating, this song is good, it talks about real shit. You gotta respect real and as for Nas leaving reggae artist alone your wack for saying that. That shit is ignorance in a nutshell. Also K'Naan is not a reggae artist he is an MC who has lyrics about real revolutionary shit CLOWN.
nas stop wastin your time with reggea artist, distant relatives was good but we need more hiphop shit
k'naan aint a reggae artist, retard
he still goes HAM on guest verses with Ross or Common, let him do what he wants
chorus is alittle too happy. if the vibe was more reggae it wouldnt be bad.
yeah quite diggin it till piece of sjit chorus... wish k'naan would stick more to his east african roots, highly doubt he grew up cultivating that style. shame (maybe coca cola money got to him.
beast of a song
