N A S the best accept it end all conversation
We all know Nas is the shit
but I'm kinda surprised with how hard a lot of these people ride his dick.
Nas too seasoned for the game right now lol...flow crisp, timing next level, lyrics refreshing...made apathy sound juvenile and apathy's verse was dope..
sorry Nas Apathy took this one!!!
never forget Nas & D Marley concert live in london i had a blast time for TRINI!!!
Nas is fucking crasy. Nas 5 star general
ALL RHYMERS AND SPITTERS...FOR RAW BEATS & INSTRUMENTALS: WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/NGXMUSIC
Apathy doin his thing waiting on that demigodz album
crapathy should stop
How could you not like this?? Apathy isn't even a producer and this beat is pretty fuckin nice!
Nas is the most critique emcee in the world...Damn can heads just appreciated the fact he's a true emcee...s/o to Apathy, that was tight work B.
apathy my favorite rapper at the moment
Apathy is dope!
Apathy is another simple nerdy, white rapper who is deemed "lyrical" because he uses words like "atomic", "comet" and "demonic". (Like 98% of the other underground backpack rappers)
There are lyrical rappers (GZA, Nas, Mos Def, Black Thought, Jay Electronica etc) who are really intelligent and deep and then there are the rappers who pretend to be lyrical (Apathy, Slaughterhouse, Ras Kass, most underground rappers white boys like)
How are Nas and Apathys verses comparable exactly? Look at the start of these verses
Nas: Yeah, ya'll know I gets it on, sip on Dom
Clear the throat, wet the palate
Compose a ballet, then expose a rare talent
The kick drum will have you numb, the snare's valid
Apathy: I'm an abomination an atom bomb
my verse is atomic
approaching the planet with power of a hurdling comet.
It's not comparable....It's clear as day which verse is better when you read it on paper. People get caught up in the delivery and the multiple syllables. Nas is a deep dude, a deep writer...Apathy is just another backpacker who grew up listening to Nas and 90's rappers trying to emulate their style when he's not half as intelligent as they are.
GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE FOOL! DELIVERY PLAYS A MAJOR ROLE!!...SOMETIMES ITS NOT WHAT YOU SAY ITS HOW YOU SAY IT!! SlaughterHouse is lyrical
GRap and Big Daddy Kane said Nas is the illest Mc ever...
White or Black Apathy been nice since like 2003 when I first heard Of him. He's done Other joints with Premo that are sick as hell. Let's not get it twisted tho u best believe Ap is a Nas deciple kid said it himself he studied Nas style... Apathy killed this joint but I'm pretty sure he was amped up just to get on this joint with his rap idol... Nas the illest Mc to hold a Mic! "IT AIN'T HARD TO TELL"
Is this kid retarded?? Have you even heard Apathy before? What a dumb fuck, Apathy is one of the nicest to do it, man. And he's been doin it for well over a decade. Ignorant ass dude talkin nonsense.
Very true bra,,,good comment
white boy calling white boys white boys, nothing to see here
faggot ass white boy
Many rappers do multi's just for the sake of it, but what is a guy like G Rap then who's able to drop crazy ass rhyme schemes while telling a coherent story on the level of Nas' best tracks? You can like Nas' music the most for different reasons, but he's far from being the most skilled rapper out there. The pure perfection of rapping G Rap displayed on albums like Live And Let Die is still unmatched to this day.
x have u even heard any of apathys albums?
You tell you wouldn't get all wet if it was Nas who dropped that verse? Every single Nas fan on here would call him the GOAT for that, so don't act otherwise. Nas got murdered here, there's nothing more to that. Nas fans always use a point where's better at, is there another rapper who's better than him at it, they let the point go quickly. This applies to anything.
BTW, Apathy's far from being a generic underground rapper.
First off, he's great cohesive albums to his name, not like other dudes who only rap on freestyles.
You should check 'Eastern Philopsophy' if you still think he's only about punchlines. I've been waiting on a Nas track that can fuck with 'The Buck Stops Here' since it dropped and Nas didn't manage to come close in 6 years now.
Apathy may have gone with the punchline style on this track but throughout the course of his Career he's rapped about many more unique and varied topics than nas has
^^^^ BRAVO; finally someone who knows what they are talking about

ARE YOU PEOPLE DUMB? THEY'RE NOT ON THE SONG TOGETHER, THIS UNDERGROUND RAPPER "APATHY" GOT HIS HANDS ON THE VOCALS AND ADDED A NEW BEAT/HIS OWN VERSE.THIS IS NOT A COLLAB.
AND HOW ARE PEOPLE COMPARING APATHYS VERSE TO NAS? APATHY SPITS PUNCHLINE RAP LIKE JOE BUDDENS, ROYCE AND HIS SQUAD...IT'S NOT COMPARABLE TO LYRICAL ARTISTS LIKE NAS. HIS VERSE WAS SIMPLE AS HELL! WTF NO DISRESPECT, JUST BEING REAL...PEOPLE CONFUSE MULTI'S WITH LYRCISIM.
someone has clearly never listed to Apathy, Jedi Mind Tricks, AOTP, etc. Dude is not some half-baked punchline rapper, look up his track "I remember".
off topic but Buddens aint just a punchline rapper, look outside of Slaughterhouse!
I bet you were the same guy who called 'Nasty' lyrical.
Yeah, simple as hell. His punchlines were highly lyrical, Nas couldn't put a verse together like that in 10 years. Stop it.

Real HipHop not HipPop". Apathy kills it and his Mentor is like no other Nasir Jones is a fuckin problem!!
when yall gonna get sick and tired of bubble gum bullshit that mainstream produces underground hiphop is the solution
str8 fire...never heard Apathy before but that verse was cooooold!
You should look into his catolouge, he's been dope
Hope this isn't their last collaboration.
Agreed. They're too fucking dope together. One of the best underground/mainstream combos ever. Don't think Nas has the courage to put him on his album, though.
Wow this is nice, real shit! Finally! Props HHDX
Lol @ Nas won't have courage to put Ap on his album... For real man" what u bitch as niggas b smoking?
real hip hop
BEAT IS BANGING..... NAS AND AP WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT!!!! BBBBBBAAAAANNNNNNGGGGEEEERRRR, NO DEBATE NEEDED!!!
AND ANONYMOUS I GUESS YOU DIDNT KNOW BUT NAS IS ONE OF AP'S BIGGEST INFULENCES.
Lmaooo@ Elizah and Lupe Fiasco murking Nasir even them niggas will Tell u to shut the fuck up! Lol. Nas is king!!!!
Eli and Lupe will smack u for that comment Lil niggas really believe the shit u blog! Nas is second to none.....
Nas influenced Elzhi and Lupe Fiasco, too. Doesn't change the fact that all three of them would easily murder him on a track.
LET ME BUY IT NOW!!!
5/5 good music no gimmicks!!
nas and premoo damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!
I like the remix done to the beat as well. (of course the verse is bonkers)
I like this track! Apathy is a fucking beast! Been! Check his other stuff out. Nas is Nas and i like when he raps this style.
apathy killed you on your own shit.
Jay added his Renegade verses after he heard Eminem's and still couldn't come up with something better, so your whole point is ridiculous.
None of you guys the same shit when Nas added his verse to Tyga's track after he heard the other verses. You're just making yourself look pathetic. There's rappers out there who'd kill Nas on anyday, get over it.
The Original track had Nas and premo its been out months. Apathy added his verse to it so ho u gon compare a track where sme1 adds a verse after????
The irony of Nas fans making a complete turnover compared to their usual behavior when Nas outshined a not so talented rapper. Now someone destroyed Nas and it's ''Why do you people say Nas got killed?'' LMAO!!!
...and Nas is my favorite rapper ever, but Apathy absolutely kills his verse line for line. You can't sleep on the dudes skill and expect to keep up. Regardless of who you are. He's too damn lyrical.
This is where rap needs to be headed...perfection perfected
Y'all are kids. Even wehn it's a featuring you want to see a battle where there wasn't one...
thats just hip hop man..
Nas himself started that shit with ''Eminem murdered you own your own shit'' and his fans followed. People aren't able to enjoy a song as a whole anymore, it's always about who got outshined.
Sorry I get amped over hip hop n I mighta just busted a nut.
A real man shouldn't have to say "no homo"-Jadakiss
This is what Hip Hop is all about, fucking fire!!!
Yall should check out ''Eastern Philosophy'' one of the best eastcoast albums of the last decade, such ill concepts on there.
I'd have to agree. Apathy's is one of the best in the game by far. Him and Crooked I are just way too lyrical and polished when it comes to production and writing.
Nice Collabo! I only got question after hearing this, whens a new DemiGodz album dropping? I need that shit like a fat kid needs cake lol
I need a new DemiGodz album....dude and Celph are fucking nuts on the mic
btw if ur hatin on Apathy at all ... ur makin ur self sound really stupid and u shouldent be on this page.. like you word.. u obviously dont kno what real hip hop sounds like.. u should jus go and listen to drake or somethin .. and ofcourse everyone on here is a nas fan..all im sayin is ... Apathy is a BEAST!!! much love outa the 215
Apathy is alright. There's numerous rappers that spit better than him. Omen and jon connor are examples.
Ill... Premo and Nas need to do a full album together
bonkersssss...gonna go ahead and say that nas is the best rapper from new york...at least better than big and jay
Dj Premier, Nas, and Apathy?? doesn't get much better then this.. 5 star vote from me!
OOOOOOH YEEEEEAH! Ap getting some much needed attention here!
OH My God this shit is HAAAARD AS FUCK. HAM
If youve never heard of apathy before your NOT A HIP HOP HEAD.....you may be a dick rider tho....
Nice to see Nas with Apathy....decent track.
Dont hate on HONKEY KONG.... youtube him before you say anything... he spits!!!!!!
apathy fuckin' sucks.... his album was overrated as hell....
i aint sayin' it cos he's white.... it's just generic sounding garbage....
that shit and nineteen ninety now fall in the same 'overrated underground' list for me.
You fucking morons, NINETEEN NINETY NOW was the best album to come out in 5 years, are yall seriously fuckin retarded?
He's right. That shit is overrated. And you dudes that can't handle people having their own opinion are immature clowns. Your repsonses are predictable and ignorant.
Dude your gay as fuck! you really dont know shit about hip hop. fucking garbage ass hater. go listen to some young dummies and lady gaga faggot.
dumbass.. u dont even kno what hip hop should sound like lol go listen to lil wayne or drake.. main stream sucks because of u
Nineteen Ninety Now, overrated? Loooool what an idiot. That was the best thing to come out of 2010. Your probably going to tell me Blue Slide Park was a classic, right? Ha Ha.
Blah Blah Blah
Always some Douche out there with a complaint
i prefer the original one. This is a dope song (rmX), but apathy had advantage on this one, since he had already heard the nas verse.
classic Nas and the production is top class
nas s verse was old plus apathy tried so hard to sound like canibus
WHAT? Are you fucking serious? you got to be the dumbest mother fucker to comment on this song. Sound like cannabis!? are you kidding me? stupid homo!
Apathy doesn't like Canibus
Apathy said on his formspring account last year when asked that he doesnt even listen to canibus and hasnt since 2000 BC
do u even kno what canibus sounds like kid?
i m sure canibus is apathys favrite.u can hear the influence
LOL, he sounds nothing like canibus, GTFOH
Ya'll are trippin' sayin' Apathy killed Nas on this. Nas kept his lyrics within the theme and context of the song. Apathy just got on and started rappin' about anything. Anyone who raps knows it's way easier to put ill rhymes together when there's no particular topic. Nas put a ill verse together and fit perfectly with the theme of the song and the film. Ya'll don't respect or recognize lyricists no more.
Sensaye, you think Apathy is a great producer but a decent rapper?? HUH? He's not even a producer man. Firstly, and obviously he is a rapper, not a producer. And, he's much better of a rapper than a producer. You got it all backwards..
Look at my original comment. Now look at your responses. Get a hold of yourself buddy. I think Apathy is a excellent producer, and a decent MC, but he could never fuck with Nas in a million years, and he'd probably be the first to tell you that, although you still wouldn't accept it. Listen 'Anonymous', I don't know if Nas fucked your girl, or what your personal beef with him is, but you're way outta control. Take your medicine and calm down sonny. What if your mom read your comments? Admit it, you and her would both be embarassed.
Very funny to read that from the same guy who said other people have no respect for lyricists while the exact same thing could easily said about you regarding Apathy. You just ethered yourself, you fucking clown. You're not alone though, that's exactly what Nas fans always do.
Listen to you man...how did you become such a loser? Look how mad you are at another man's opinion. That's very bitch-like.
Shut your excusing ass mouth up, nobody would say the same thing if it was Nas who killed another rapper, yall Nas stans are always the first to say ''Nas killed (insert any rapper you can imagine)'' without a particular reason. You're so blinded, you can't even admit it when another rapper murdered Nas and this is what happened here, shut up with that ''b-b-b-ut'' talk.
Damn,don't you hate it when there's a nice ass song that is very short?? >_< lol. Still a 5* in my book :)
Weeezzy!! you serious son
Weezy? Word? Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit! This track is dope! Nas and Apathy destroy anything that wack ass punk has ever done! Album sells doesn't mean shit to hip-hop fans.
LIL WEEZY CUMS ON ALL THESE FAKE NIGGAZ. SWAG UP. YADIG
weezy is the worst thing that ever happend to hip hop..weezy is the worst thing ive ever heard...weezy would be shook to go up against Ap..swag up?? ur korny young buck..
YM fags always talking bout Cum and Dicks and shit, go back to the rainbow room wit that hoe ass shit
FLawless Songgg APs contributions to this was perfct!!
dis nigga nas is unreal, so long in the game and still shitting on it with ease, god damn.
Idk y u guys are talking about apathy killing nas on this. I'm sure it was an honor for him to be able to do this remix as he is a huge nas fan. I guarantee he didn't go into this thinking "oh yea imma show this guy how the underground gets down".. Anyway this is an amazingly dope remix. Nas' verse is older but still great and apathy ripped the track a new azzhole as usual! Simply great.
For all those youngsters blinded by the mainstream hip pop, just press play and listen to some real shit. simply spectacular. I would give it 6 stars if i could. AOTP for life!
WHOS THIS JT SNOW CHUMP HATING? E LOPEZ... LOL ILL B MAD IF I WAS U 2!!!
Nas is still a beast, this is a sick song
Thanks to Apathy for showing those mainstream bitches that there are rappers who'd EASILY destroy their heroes if they wanted to. Apathy murdered Nas on this track with ease and would do so on any other track. That's what happens when the weakly skiled Nas jumps on tracks with rappers of another caliber and not people like Tyga or Wayne, he gets embarrased.
yo I love both Nas and Apathy and i would not say Nas is weakly skilled at all. nobody would. we love em both and that shit is just startin beef.
The fuck am i reading? Nas' verse and vocals are around 4 months old. It's not like dude was in the stuido with nas when he was writing his verse and renegaded him. I swear if a dude adds a little diction to his verse you underground stans bust a nut.
Damn. Just great. Damn.
can't stop listening again and again
Apathy been that dude
If homie woulda swallowed his pride and wrote songs about skateboards and Beer Pong like Atlantic wanted him to he'd be a household name by now
He couldn't write a hit record?? Have you ever even heard his music, you absolute retard?? Have you ever heard "School?" What about his whole debut album, "Eastern Philosophy?" I swear there are some of the dumbest motherfuckers on this website, it amazes me. The dude was right. Apathy should have stayed with Atlantic just to put ONE album out, so he could gain recognition and then go independent. But as major labels always do, they wanted him to do some fake shit that wasn't really him, and he wouldn't have it. That's the definition of a real dude and the opposite of a sellout. This dude should be a household name, he's easily one of the nicest to do it! The whole Demigodz click are animals! Too bad Louis Logic is gone...
i thought i can and made u look came out in 2003.some dudes cant even solve simple arithmetic
Dude murdered a 4 or more months old nas verse. Congrats?
Well, they're in the same boat. Nas ain't able to write a hit, too. It's his 10th year without a hit, so fuck off with bullshit, you bitch. If Nas rappers murder Nas on a track, you clowns try to play it down by saying that they got less success, is it other rappers who have more success, but also so lesser skills, it's Nas who outshines them. Fucking revisionist ass niggas, always trying to turn shit around for the sake of favoring Nas.
yeah sure he would. Motherfucker couldn't write a hit record if his life depended on it. Perennial loser.
wanna hear new shit?
did apathy just kill nas on this?
This is so old. Damn hiphopdx be sleeping.
"dont be so narrow minded and admire good music when you see it"
more like admire good music when HEARD, herb.
if they put some old school shit on here would you troll in the c-section about how it's "so old"
dont be so narrow minded and admire good music when you see it
Check out this mixtape - http://www.mediafire.com/?k77w5bsrslayn4r
Damnnnnn JT Snow , sounds like you have serious personal issues with Apathy. You musta really got your feelings hurt somehow by him. You seem super emotional about taking the time to drive your point home. Your "opinion" is off point and bullshit, and obviously no one else feels like that, but you. Probably cuz your issue with Ap is personal. Lmao. This shit is hot. Beat is dope, Ap kills it. Stop being so negative.
nas is so ill it aint fukn funny
you're so gay and delusional it aint fukn funny
Holy Shit! Ap and Nas are such an amazing combo! If you don't like this your just flatout stupid and don't know shit about hip hop
Always corny when low level underground corns feel the need to super-impose their vocals over tracks legends are on. I guess this is the only way gay ass Apathy can do a joint with Nas. Wack move, wack artist, wack beat, wack remix.
you mr. snow are a complete idiot. you are talkin out your ass. go listen to stupid hoe. that is probably more up your ally
Oh em gee, there's rappers that can outshine 4 month old nas verses. My whole world is tumbling down on me. What would hiphop do without you underground stans?
Typical dumb Nas groupie, so scared of the fact that there are rappers out there who destroy him and rap circles around him anyday that they try to make it seem less, kill yourself.
Haha, If u ain't now shut the fuck up!
you look pretty dumb right about now huh..
Its an OFFICAL REMIX dumbass, Nas & Primo INVITED him to do it
actually premier asked apathy to do it, and nas invited him to spit on it, so dont assume asshole
the move was approved by nas.
YOU DAMN GODS.
I know it is but it does not sound like Premo at all.
Thats because its not, Ap made the beat
ill, so ill...
Damn those two emcees for murdering the track, now no one can touch.
THIS IS AMAZING. APATHY AND NAS ARE TWO OF THE TRUEST PIONEERS IN THE GAME. IF YOU AINT FEELING THIS YOU'RE A BITCH. THAT SIMPLE.
Nice to hear Nas over primo. Sound like some It was written
you do realize this is an apathy production..the original is produced by premier
So dope, keep up the good work Ap. cool that you got to work with Nas. 5 stars mofos
Noone can put it together like nas and premier..makes young money look reeeeal young
i dont understand why is nas fuckin with the likes of Tyga ,Wayne and Ross when Apathy shits on all of them together
cuz Nas is still a mainstream underground mc and knows he has to continue to stay relevant to survive in this game and still spit dopeness. Nas, like Jay n Busta have pretty much workedwitheveryone.
nas and apathy would bring death to a lot of wack emcees...
i wonder if wayne fans listen to this and stilll think wayne is the best rapper out there hahah
I really enjoyed that. Ap went in! I think him and nas sound good together they should get a real collab going
Its nor Primo level but the beat is dope, Ap's gettin better at those it seems
This is like a breath of fresh air in these polluted days of hip hop.
aps killed it...... why was nas there?
beat was better than average
The beat is wack and Apathy could have waited if he wanted to collab with Nas. DISSAPOINTED COULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER BEAT!
Makes 15 out of 5
Nas went in!!
Medival references on point!
Apathy was on fire.
Premo - 5 stars !!
that apathy nigga murdered this shit! fire!!!!
Yo Apathy, good job man!! Ap's gettin good at beats yo...He's always been one of the illest emcees in the game but his production is gettin nice!
