Well, in all truth I like Lil' Wayne. He doesn't bother me. However, the only aspect of his work that stands out is his horrid, nasally monotone that at times evokes E.T. As for Nas, his work and longevity speak for themselves.

In this day and age, selling 180K in a week is almost what 500K would have been five-to-seven years ago. As rampant as downloading and bootlegging is, you would have to a.ssume for every single album sold, there is at the very least 2-to-3 being downloaded or burned.

Then again, if we're mentioning how Nas has lost due to his sales, we shouldn't be remiss in reminding you that in a round-about manner you're mentioning that a homos3xual won and Nas has lost. You see, Lil' Wayne was caught kissing another man dead on the lips. There isn't any 'no homo,' quips which could clear that up.

Also, why are you mentioning people not knowing how to write proper sentences when your retorts to thier reponses are nearly as worse as thier's are.

You should refain from using an ellipsis in every sentence. It's proper use is for emphasis and segues; something all your sentences do not need since they aren't properly supported by rhetoric preceeding it.

Write a real sentence. Stop being an anti-Nas stan and enjoy the music.

I think the real issue here is Hip-Hop is the only music in which our legends aren't applauded and lauded for their durability in such a fickle landscape. We should support them like the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin are by buying thier albums and seeing thier shows -- which is where the majority of money is made for artists in these times.

But we don't.

We post rampant BS about someone failing when in all actuality they in one week probably made more money than you will make in two to three decades of your existence on this Earth.

Garner some perspective.
Nicely constructed opinion. What surprises me though is how it was possible for you to not know how to spell "their" after writing an eloquently written discussion, but that don't matter. It was a good read

Yeah, Hero's the lead single. I guess this shows how far the single went in terms of buzz..

Music critics praised American Gangster,[1] and noted that Jay-Z was trying more "complex lyrics".[2] The album was released to significant commercial success, despite being pulled from the iTunes Store,[3] selling 425,861 copies in its first week and debuting at number one on the Billboard 200, tying Elvis Presley for the second most number one albums.[4] The Rolling Stone magazine named American Gangster the third best album of 2007.[5]
That album was still kinda wack...

Why the hell do you keep saying Nas "loss"?

Nas won, he went #1 AND can spell properly.
Your bi*ch a.ss can't even spell a four letter word, let alone win anything.

Put your spelling in context to real life situations:

"How was your basketball game?"
"Oh I loss"
"You loss?"
"Yea, I loss"




Nas got to #1 and that's good for me.
exactly

what's worse is that he was trying to make fun of somebody else for not capitalizing the first letter of their sentences lmao

i mean how can u think that "nas loss" makes sense? it doesnt even sound right when u say it..unless u speak like a retard too

Your comparing a n*gga whose lead single was "Lollipop" to a person whose single was "Hero" a song where a rapper is talking about conscious sh*t... to a person whose hook is "She wants to lick the wrapper, so i let her lick the rapper" LOL

It doesn't matter what fu*kin number it is when it's not going up against anybody else basically. Weezy already pulled in his fans in the first wave, that's why he sold that much when it first dropped. First week sales ALWAYS reflect anticipation... and Nas didn't have much, even after all the album title controversy/bullsh*t to attract attention. Nas is irrelevant now, and if you can't see that, I'll bet my balls that you're a sour fan in DENIAL. Let me slow it down for you so you can understand if I say it slower: Let it go dawg it's OVER.
This right here just goes to show you why Hip Hop is fu*ked. You would rather credit someone who doesn't have an identity of their own/follower instead of someone thats educating us with knowledge and speakin the truth about whats REALLY GOING ON with US. But instead since he drinks cough syrup and Sprite and make funny voices you vouch for him? Thanks now I know.

At the end of the day NAS wins because even if you dont like him you continue to speak about him and compare him to your favorites. So with that being said, numbers dont lie. Look at the Poll. OUT
