From the man himself - "The Rise and The Fall"

"My cars were auctioned off, now I catch rides with kidnap n*ggas
Who snatched babies off to get back figures, Lessons from heaven
Every night I slept with my weapon to guard my family for a minute
I forgot my profession, not from Columbia or Nicaragua
Don't distribute coke from Antigua, that shipped out to Panama
Pablo Escobar's bloody reign came to an end
Far from my life; a kid who made his fame from a pen

Hit the studio and change the game again
Wrote down all the pain within"

I was about to post that myself. Nas pretty much put out there on that whole song that his street stories and lavish lifestyle was fabricated.

y'all some gossipy b**ches in the hip hop spot

the dude grew up in the biggest hood in the country during crack epidemic NYC in the 80s, dropped out of middle school, and made it out alive. Enough said...

What have you been through? The term real doesn't even mean anything in the modern state of hip hop, Nas' era was so much realer they can't be compared.
Wasn't that dude Drake an actor on some f**king Disney show before deciding to be the next hot auto tune rapper? Yeah... don't talk to me about Nas' street cred cause I don't give a f**k what you think you know aka what you heard from some other nerd on the internet, or what some disgruntled homie said because hes so jealous of Nas' success that he'll say anything to discredit him. Respect the legends in the game.
basically....... the n*gga is almost 40 a grown man not really worried about street cred... yall n*ggas need to grow the f**k up...

what point?.....most n*ggas in hip hop have told street tales....it's a part of hip hop....nas grew up in qb the largest housing project in the country....it's not like he grew up in the burbs...he had a lifetime to soak up all this,and relay what he saw...it doesn't equate to him claiming to be a gangsta.....


a lot of you n*ggas are hip hop dumb..
Lol, you trying way too hard in here. Nas is the best rapper ever, but claiming he doesn't claim gangster and kingpin is rediculous. I'll show you a couple, because clearly that's all that's required to prove you wrong, seen as you think he's NEVER claimed gangsta.

Basically all of It Was Written, Nas was claiming gangsta:

"My actions are one with the seasons
A tec squeezin - executioner, winter time I rock a fur" - Take It In Blood

"But every night the gat's fired, and every day a rat's hired
I still remain the mack flyest in the phat Kani, it's --
-- just the k!ller in me, slash drug dealer MC
Ex-slug filler, semi mug peeler" - Take It In Blood

"And of course I've been the boss since back when
Rocking D Boy, Fila, velour in 190 black Benz
Now they shut down the stores when I'm shopping
Used to be train robbing, face covered in stocking
I'm him" - Hero

Does this make him any worse of a rapper? Of course not. 90% of the damn rap game does the same s**t, but let's not try dress Nas up as some saint. Hell, I think he'd be mad if you tried to tell him he's never claimed any of this. CLEARLY he wants people to believe he's been through all this s**t. He typically talks about it like it's in the past , but in his younger days he talked about it like he was still a crime kingpin. Most the rap game is fake, and despite being so, they'd try convince you til their dying breath that everything they say is true. Rap is art and entertainment. If you can't appreciate the music without having to believe that Rapper XYZ REALLY did k!ll that whole gang that tried to jump him, or REALLY is owed 100 favours by a drug kingpin, that's your loss.

Having said that, if you don't think Nas in some gangsta s**t, Snoop Dogg, for one, disagress to an extent:

From about 5 minutes on. One of the coolest stories I've heard. If Nas having 100 dudes with him with guns on them isn't 'keeping it real' to you guys, then so be it.

no. when your own friends that you came up with and cats from your hood go on the record to call you out as a fraud then thats what it is. not to mention known rappers from his hood coremega, mobb deep, 5 fingas calls him out.

then on top of that, another cat from another city comes to your set and plays you?

had to throw a rebuttal in there, after watching ya pac joint I checked out suge interview, cuz I remember something about nas and pac tryna link up...most of the dudes that dissed nas only did so after they didnt get there way, the same thing Jay going thru right now

n*gga stop lying....find me an interview where nas has EVER said he did ANY of that s**t..and you picking quotes from songs that were STORY TELLING tracks is asinine...it was written was just one big concept to prove he could do the s**t biggie was doing,and do it better...there is a difference between someone painting you a picture,and someone relaying to you real life events....it's clear some of you don't possess the mental capacity to tell the difference...


if a n*gga does a story telling track about kidnapping hoes,and robbing a bank for 5 million....then obviously HE DID IT,and is claiming he's a gangsta........twits..

i can tell y'all are young for even discussing it the way y'all have....nas blew up in the early 90s..pre internet. you couldn't get put on back then if your hood wasn't behind you. nas never admitted to being the most gangsta or a full fledged thug for that matter. however, every hood in nyc had his back. there was no hiding behind colors none of that bs, straight hood love which was the reason all of these rappers were jealous of him. if doing stupid s**t in the streets makes someone dope in your book than enjoy listening to boosie, wayne, and the rest of the idiots

did pac ever diss nas? i know he herb'd nas but i never remember a diss track.

back to the point: just like you say "most...dudes that dissed nas only did so after they didn't get there way". the reason jay-z (a nas fan) ever had beef with nas is because nas stood up jay on a studio session for "bring it on" off reasonable doubt. seems to me that nas thought he was too hot to collab w/ n*ggas. but just a couple years ago at big daddy kane's tour nas treated jay like the best of friends

that just adds to the point of this thread, nas is a fraud.
