his style is not anything new or different from rakim or kool g rap which were more complex. their albums in the 80's were better than illmatic.

i was going to post this but i didn't want to start another long ass debate. nas's best shit is very derivative of g rap and rakim, he is definitely the least original of any "goat" contender.

G Rap and Rakim don't compare to Nas technically.

I can't even name 20 albums that are better than It Was Written

Lost Tapes and God's Son are classis too and Like is Good and DR will be classics down the line.

2pac only has 3 classic albums. And plus nas is more lyrical.

More classics, more lyrically, Illmatic is better than any 2pac album, Nas is just better

Pac has a better voice or whatever

Biggie has 2 albums.

Jay-z lacks Nas' passion

Rakim overall isn't as versitle

Scarface sounds like he's 75 years old even when he was in Geto boys.


Nas is the best. Plain and simple.

nas still doesn't have more classic songs than pac and he has been alive 15 years longer.

i also haven't gotten negged and i don't think nas is the goat.

I don't listen to Hip-Hop, but for me it's always between Biggie and Nas if we're talking about the greatest (I don't think Tupac is as good as people make him out to be. Biggie's flow is a hell of a lot better and Nas's lyrics crapped all over Tupac's). I don't know if I think Nas is a greater rapper than Biggie, but I'd say Illmatic is the greatest rap album.

Then again what do I know my favorite genre is metal.

I still think "The World Is Yours" is one of the best written songs in any genre of music period. So poetic.

Damian > Nas

Different genre though, I know...

In any case, Nas is clearly at worst top 5, and arguably top 3.

GOAT might be pushing it, but ultimately it comes down to matter of opinion.

I am a bit surprised Royce Da 5'9" has not even been mentioned in here. He could be argued as top 10 or even top 5.

Also, not a single mention of Guru? WTF? :
