Tupac can't touch Nas in terms of anything rap related, storytelling included. Where do you think he got the idea for 'Me and my girlfriend' from? The only reason many consider him greater is the James Dean effect.



Doesn't matter.... 2pac did all of his work by age 25. Nas is now 40 years old... So there's no telling what 2pac was capable of as an artist if he were alive today.

Death Row East was his next move...

Yes and it's not even close. It's a fact not an opinion.

Biggie probably had the greatest rap style of all time, it can't be duplicated. Definitely a better lyricist than PAC.

I agree with some of the posters above tho, these two are overrated due to their early deaths. Nas and hov surpassed them a long time ago.

Detroit legend ESHAM THE UNHOLY is the real GOAT. Get the hell out of here with that Nas BS.

Pac, Nas, And Biggie are all overrated. They can't hold a candle to Esham.

Kool G Rap isnt from Queensbridge and MC Shan and Craig G are no where as good as Nas.
