    This song right here is one of the best songs since the 90's I am not exaggerating

  • Sku DaReelis

    Wow!!! Hats off to DJ Khaled. Man, I can't believe this: Nas actually killed Scarface on here. Two of the best lyricists EVER! Preemo's cuts also deserve praise. Man, this song has put my faith bacc into HIP HOP.

    Due to this song I will admit that "DJ" Khaled exists.

    Scarface does it again

  • Anonymous

    MDC - Modern Day Classic This is the best real hip hop track I've heard in a long time. Scarface does not get the respect he deserves. He should be on everyone's Top 10 DOA list. Nothing against all the other great MC's out there but this verse confirms that Nas is the GOAT. Nobody could have spit a better verse, period.

  • pat

    what more does nas has 2 do 2 prove he is the best

  • pat

    nas should charge them rappers a million dollrs for his verses

    nas nas nas thats all igot 2 say all the way frm south africa

    Great song 4.5/5 Why couldn't kiss the ring have more songs like this

  • www.marlosbeats.com

    Pheonominal...song almost got a 5 out 5 with 55K plays...the "Kiss The Ring" project is flopping hard though...

  • laron

    Nas,he fears being an absolute icon. He fears becoming a man who not only manages to escape the travails of the average African American male, though for the most part. He has to stay firmly rooted to the struggle and mindset of the everday hustling, suppressed by "the man," self proclaimed socially conscious black male or else they'll say "he changed, he's pop,he sold out" I wonder just how thin that line is between love and hate.

    • Sucio Beats

      "What would you rather be, underpaid or overrated?"

    • sellout

      God forbid a rapper sells outs and gains another million fans and makes millions more, boy, how stupid is that.... People that talk about wayne, em and others selling out and becoming "pop" pisses me off to no end. Especially when every single one of you pieces of trash would chose having a million fans and ten thousand haters while making multi-millions of dollars over having just the ten thousand fans and making a couple hundred thousand. Get off your high horse people, who cares if a rapper or anyone sells? If it happens and you don't like it then stop listening and listen to your "real" and "raw" hip/hop, but don't constantly go to their songs and spread your hate. Use your brain for more than two seconds in your life, you are just wasting your own time.

    People pretend that a genre of music can "die" because they are so egocentric, and unworldy that it would be impossible to accept the fact that the genre has moved on and evolved without them. It is like a kid with a caterpillar who returns from pre-school only to discover that a an ugly scary butterfly has "eaten" his beautiful caterpillar. We with better sense would understand that the butterfly is simply the progression of the caterpillar 5 star song. The fact is, it is a part of today's hiphop. It was made in today's climate. Don't try to paint it as an ode to the 'era of true hip hop'(whatever true hip hop means). There were time machines involved in the making of this song. This is modern day music, this exists today.

    • Phil

      Couldn't agree more, have been preaching the words of evolution of music on this site for years now. Not many even make an attempt to comprehend this concept, mostly because it is likely beyond their intellectual capacity and others are just ignorant. It is also likely they will never understand this despite our efforts. It is good to see I'm not the only educated person on this site.

    • Musashi

      Well said! As a 33yr old man, I have grown up my whole life w HipHop. I remember when 80s rappers were mad at 90s rappers for the progression to real street rap (i.e. guns, drugs, etc.) and now its happening again. My point being its not so much what u say but how u say it.

    • Anonymous

      laron the catepillar analogy was perfect...well said my dude...as true hip hop fans we have to move on and learn to appreciate the present expression of artists...the 90's were an amazing time for hip hop that probably cemented it as a genre and not a passing fad...that said we grew up and must move on

      Being a bitch is not so bad you know. Especially because its just a word and no one knows what the hell it really means in the non dictionary context. Its not really that insulting when I think about it. Especially written over the internet from a stranger who has no clue that I might actually be their favorite rapper, athlete or even their mother. Besides, there are worse things to be and worser people too...

      so you say that todays hiphop is better than 90's and early 00's rap? if you believe that you're a fucking bitch

    • laron

      With all due respect, I bet you say this every time they post a Nas song, and not because its true because it isn't. I think you say it because...well...that's what diehard fans do. And then after a while you really start to believe what you say. I lie told well, over and over is inevitably the truth.

    I cant speak for everyone on this site but when i hear music like this it connects to me on a personal level. And not on some stuff where the rapper was saying a bunch of cliche' terms and trying to fake you into believing that this rap sh*t matters. I know that people under 25 get tired of hearing about the old days and in some ways i agree because we have a tendancy to be too nostalgic. But the feelin you got from the music was sincere. Simply because the artist was. The culture of rap is sickened with the same plagues that we used to mock other genre's for. Rap was never about having a hit song it was about making a dope album. A bad sign of any music genre is the amount of one hit wonders it has under its belt. The rise in these amounts in rap is dramatic and detremental to the culture as a whole. People need to be looking at rap as a career rather than a job. Listening to this song in addition to Life is Good has me thouroughly convinced That Nas is the greatest rapper of all time. No other rapper has remained this strong lyrically even after 10 years in rap let alone 20.

      if you watched the making of video it shows the first time scarface hears nas verse he gos crazy and say he doesn't want to be on it joking around then he plays the oj simpson line back as well

  • The_Observer

    Nas really does insults our intelligence...his personification songs always gives clues what's he talking about 'I Gave You Power' - he tells us from the beginning of the song he's personifying a gun where is 'Me And My Girlfriend' leaves no single clue same with Fried Chicken and Last Words where he gives clear indication he's personifying a wall Now on this song his verse is not that unique coz he' gives clues 'i fuck hip hop' that line on its own carries no weight but coz its Nas his stans just see legendary on simple line This Man Must stop insulting our intelligence and take a page out of Tupac's poetry book and learn

    Problem with us black people is that we don't have vision, long term investment rather we think for now...we animals...just consume now and for tomorrow we'll cross the bridge when we get there rather than signing 2 Chainz, Chief Keef, Soulja Boy's and all the wack ass non lyrical mc's people like Dr Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Good Music and Def Jam should be investing in lyrical mc's especially the veterans Its not that can't sell records, as smart marketing team could sell a bucket of water to an ocean if Good Music or Def Jam were to invest in lyrical veterans like Jadakiss, AZ, Pharoah Monch, Talib Kweli, Black Thought, Canibus, Chino XL, Ras Kass, Killah Priest, Masta Ace, Last Emperor, and Scarface (well Def did once, and proved to be success) they'll take hip hop to a higher level of respect and viewed as an English language representation gunning for longevity. Any of these mentioned artist can sell millions if were to be put behind good beats by your Kanye, Dr Dre, Alchemist, No ID, Justice League, Focus, Pharell, Jay Electronica and others with the right marketing budget they could dominate airwaves same way as your 2 Chainz, Chief Keef and Rick Ross...they got the lyrics, and all they need is to be paired up with dope beats and there we have Hip Hop the Poet not the current Hip Hop the Whore that every Tom Dick and Harry is pimping rappers like AZ, Last Emperor are ill with the flow, too damn ill so why ain't they getting invested on instead of 2 Chainz? Coz black business men don't think they still chess pawns and white men still king control them with his vision of profit 1st art none The internet is a blessing coz then you get see response from fans instantly than before it was where it is today. yesterday we were just writing fanmail, calling radio station but today we can give feedback instantly when we don't feel an artist or a song or album. When we react negatively its not hate, but it trully how a person feels...if you don't like a song you don't like why you gotta be labelled a hater??? A smart business man is the one that will invest in lyricist coz they last longer than the none lyrical niggaz hence Nas, Lupe, Eminem and Jay Z are still around and still make a buzz whenever they working on album its coz people are looking forward to great lyricism. Rick Ross is just hot now but won't last forever as Nas, Jay Z and Em have. He is just enjoying his 15 mins of fame same way Master P, P Diddy, and 50 Cent did in their prime but no longevity coz they don't posses the basics (lyricism) We tolerate Nas or Lupe whenever they come wack coz we still believe they can come thru correct the next time around coz they posses the basics which is lyricism but as soon as Rick Ross flops one album, he's done ain't no coming back!!!!!!

It was a classic and then they just ruined it. Move forward and hope for new talent it will come.

    • Smoke

      i hear what you saying but theres so many factors to consider. My main issue is first is about record sales and buying albums: People need to understand that sales actually do matter. The more a certain sound/style sells the more a label will push it. Nowadays labels are pushing that pop rap because thats what sells the most Honestly i could write a book about this but what im trying to say is that before we say "Def Jam should invest in lyrical artists" we need to show that we really want to support these artists. Remember it cost alot money to support an artist and theres no point for a label to push an artist if he wont sell many records. An example is Big KRIT. His talented and does put substance in his music, but he only sold 40 000 in his first week and last time i checked the album is around 81,000 copies. Which is ok but those numbers arent gonna make def jam say "we need to invest in Big KRIT" Like i said, before we say we need more lyrical we need to support heavily those that are already here

  • MLE

    Nas..... are you KIDDING me? both face and nas ripped this. S/O to justice league for the beat.. and premier for the scratching. made it a classic. and Khaled for the idea of getting all of these guys together

  • jerryc

    yo seriously I am a rap fan and used to bump every jay-z cd up until black album. The guys flow is slow and boring now; and we should all be able to admit that as hip hop fans. Hes dumbed it downa nd says about half of what he used to in a verse by slowing it down. Its just not as good. I do not want him on here. This song is perfect

  • 2da9thpwr

    Am I the only one who realized how hard Nas went. That verse was epic, almost rap verse of the year. That wordplay was just too sick. Nas is the greatest most hated by the internet era rapper ever. I just dont get why people don't give him props as the greatest. The dude is consistent as a lyricist. He's one of the most creative story tellers ever. I dont understand why the internet hates Nasty. I love underground rap but I along with Mac lethal and others agree that Nasty is one of the greatest. WTF?

    Scarface got this and every other track he did with Nas. As always, Nas brought it lyrically, but his delivery is straight out WACK. You can hear and read his words, but you don't feel them. He's like a fucking robot, delivering every topic and emotion in the exact same manner. You don't feel what Nas is talking about off his delivery alone, he acts like a gangsta, a poet, a broke and rich, a sad and happy nigga all in the same vocal tone. Music = emotion. That's why he'll never be close to being the greatest rapper. He might be the greatest lyricist, but that doesn't translate into being the greatest rapper.

    • The_Observer

      Emotion/ delivery is much more effective than just dope lyricism and word play...it touches your heart, and makes you react look at hollywood, movies that win Oscars are not your Batman or action packed high speed car chase but low budget 'drama' movies where actors are tasked to show and deliver their acting skill by completely morphing into a diff character than what they are same thing with music, its not about being on a high budget Dr Dre, or Kanye West beat but being able to act out the character you painting with your words so we the listeners can visualize the delivery You gotta inject emotion into the word play, get into character and play out your script perfectly I go with Scarface on this one....''She left me stranded in my nightmares/ taking pictures of my memories she's right there'' ... if your mind fails to visualize this, then am sorry to say you got brain damage Nas is just delivering a speech reading from his cue cards

    • Anonymous

      I agree, finally someone sees what i see...Nas is great lyrically but he can't get into character and deliver the emotion of the picture he's painting...Scarface outdid Nas with delivery, and Nas only out did Face lyrically as song or movie is more effective when it evokes an emotion out of the viewer or listener hence why Pac is the most effective rapper to date...he rhymed of his heart that you could hear when he was happy, angry or jus ok....Face really sounds emotional and heart broken in this track thats what makes his verse so timeless. As much as Nas came through lyrically but it just sounds like he's reading straight off his rhyme book, and face memorized his verse then spit it from memory and heart

    • comachonvargas

      ^^^^WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU LISTENING TO? Its unbelievable how you guys can manufacture baseless criticisms whenever Nas drops gems, this track being case in point. His delivery was wack? You'll be a SLAVE to your GRAVE YOU WON'T GET OUT YOU CANNOT QUIT... huh? Dude doesn't need to be as emphatic as Face because his lyrics are so much more complex... the finality and inescapability of words like these convey the lows of a man who has dedicated his life to hip hop every bit as much as Scarface vocal inflection reveals. Plus Nas' voice is very smoky so it obscures changes in inflection and delivery that are more apparent through voices of other rappers... I think you guys really aren't even listening... can't you hear the change when he says he was just trying to protect his music family? Or when he says shes a motherfucking whore? Face is a first ballot legend but he got worked on this. I don't want to even compare their verses because they excel at different things. I know Face has so much pain and feeling in his delivery, and he has more than Nas sure. But Face can't get close to matching Nas imagery and this song definitely proves it. And Nas trumped Face on In Between Us and Gangsta Rap made me do it. You guys are seriously looking for any reason to hate on Nas. And if you don't have one, you just make one up. Come on now just enjoy the goddamn classic joint they just laid as a hip hop fan. ONE

    4 stars, -1 for that fatfuck Dj Khaled being listed on this track. He doesn't do anything except say "DJ Khaled" and organized 2 or more rappers to be on the same track- he's a glorified personal assistant at best. You are a meat head if you think he adds any value to the hip hop game.

    This is an insThe beat was flawless, the delivery was flawless and the metaphor was very slick.

  • BIGDOLO

    The definition of mediocre...way too over hyped on this site just because of the names attached to this song. I expected so much more from Face, hes been in the game for 20 years and still hasnt evolved his game like Nas did. Therefore: 2.5 stars for the rap, 1.5 stars for the wack ass beat by the overrated justice league. Oh and all the haters SUCK A FAT DICK, 99 percent of you herbs dont know hiphop like I do.

    Fat sh1t, Scarface and NAS are two of the very best. DJ Khalid has nothing to do with this

    • jj

      give him credit man, yea he didnt produce, rap, or scratch any of this track...but he was the one that arranged it and that is the important part..if it wasnt for him, this song wouldnt have came out..thank you dj khaled, nasty, face, and preemo

  • Killa

    first time i listened to this i was like hell yea, this is like "i used to love h.e.r." except with 2 of my favorite mc's (not that common aint)but the second time i listened to it, i analyzed every line and they say some CRAZY SHIIIT..for you younger listeners, you wont appreciate this song as much because you wont get what some of nas' lines. the OJ line was sick, him talkin about his "hip hop is dead" album in such a crazy way, saying i am joseph jason and darryl (thats Run DMC) talkin about rap magazines without directly talkin about the magazine, and sooo much...wow i am at a loss for words, easily the best VERSE ive heard in probably 10 years...thank you DJ khaled for putting this song together, one love

    not me... another song about hip hop... and why is djkhaled here? im not giving it a 5 ony because there are 2 legends here.. doesnt appeal to me. and lyrics are good but nothing that i will listen to again.

    • johhny blaze

      and if you dont know what hes saying when he says that...hes sayin he doesnt wanna kill the bitch like OJ..and the bitch he refers to is hip hop...amazing man

    • johnny blaze

      if you dont think this song is classic, your probably a kid that wears snapbacks and think everything you do is "swag".. i dont like khaled either but the fact that he arranged this song, i will give him props..if you cant appreciate a song that says "i dont wanna dame the game like orenthal james" you should switch your music preferences cuz hip hop aint for you

  • Three Kings

    This track is ten times iller than 'New Day' by 50 Cent, and '3 Kings' by Rick Ross 'Three Kings' actually should have been, Scarface, Nas and Rakim

    lol nas going murder again... i swear this dude has been ripping through tracks crazy fr the last couple years damnn!!

  • Sosa

    Andre's body of work mostly talks about women so this double entendre would be perfect for him on a remix i agree as for Jay Z, as long as he does not brag about his riches, his daughter, Beyonce and bank account he'll be right for a remix as well remix: Dj Khaled ft Scarface, Nas, Andre 3000, and Joe Budden

  • I Do It For Hip Hop

    a remix to this track needs rappers with emotional flows like Jay Z, Ghostface, and Andre 3000 Dj Khaled should consider a remix but not include anyone from Young or Cash Money

  • micfuna

    Another Nas/Scarface classic.

  • jerrycc

    Its frustrating because this truly is much better htan life is good and the reason is the beat. All I ask for is beats that you can bob your head to with nas rapping and a catchy hook. This is a complete song. The only song I loved on life is good was the opener(by justice league) and the one with mary j blige. The others are just average songs even though Nas raps and flows well. You must have a good beat and a good hook as well.

    • The_Observer

      a good beat is just as important as good lyrics...Nas delivers boring flows on wack beats and only comes correct on good beats with equally talented lyricist these 2, Nas/Scarface have delivered classic as a pair, 'favor for a favor', 'In between Us' and now 'Hip Hop' They should do more collabos....Scarface should put Nas on his upcoming album

    • Johnny

      Agree 100%.. think Eminem, think Jay Z. Who makes the majority of their beats? Dre and Kanye. The two best producers ever.. a good beat is just as important as the lyrics in the greatness of a song. But obviously there's no denying Nas is a lyrical monster top 5 dead or alive

    • Anonymous

      That's legitimate. Great beats make Nas' shit perfect, you can't deny it.

    • MV

      Its the lyrics that mean something. If Nas is spitting some conscious shit that actually has meaning, who gives a fuck about the beat, it doesn't take away from what he has to say. Thats the problem with hip hop today, too much concern over the beat and not enough lyrical content, don't get it twisted.

    • rashid

      u r an idiot if u don't like nas music dont listen to it instead of talking bout some damn beats all the time how has he been around so many years still top tier if his music or as you all say his beats selection is so terrible somebody is listening - stop falling for someones propaganda of nas music being bad and monkey see monkey do yall start saying the same shit people are sheep- Nas is a giant and his music is great listen to someone else instead of negatively commenting on

  • The Watcher

    these 2 have undeniable and beautiful chemistry - they should rethink that Dr Death collabo album Scarface has chemistry with alot of legendary mc's...Tupac, Nas and Beanie Sigel

  • The Watcher

    I hop Nas sees the response to this he receives heavy criticism when he's paired up with Rick Ross but receives heavy praise when paired up with Scarface thats a message from hip hop fans right there that Nas should pair up with lyricist and not rappers based on their popularity and cd sales don't ignore the message Nas, its loud and clear...We love it when you pair up with real mc's coz you come correct lyrically imagine if 'Accident Murderess' featured either a Scarface, or AZ...you would have received more praise then criticism

  • 2012 Hip Hop

    Scarface played the part very well with this concentrated dose of emotion Face really sounds disturbed in this track, playing the part of a heart broken man....well done no emotion behind Nas' verse but still ill Andre 3000 would be good on the remix

  • wuzi

    WOW!!!!!!! NAS POETRY IS TOO MUCH, MOST OF HIS LYRICS WENT OVER A LOT OF NIGGAS HEAD. NOW I KNOW WHY PEOPLE HATES NAS SO MUCH,CAUSE THEY SIMPLE MINDED PEOPLE. HIS LYRICS WAY TOO DEEP FOR THEM
