LMAO. I don't need to look it up because I know what I'm talking about as you just proved for me. Like I said, the majority have ignored the rule as you did. So that "constantly changing English language" has made it acceptable for the ignorant to use Nas'.. You're welcome...again. Don't be mad and too prideful to accept corrections. It is what it is.
You back up your ignorance with arrogance. How pathetic can you be? Rather, at this point, how much further can you go in that regard? I'm afraid to find out for our sakes.

Like I said, there is no rule. In the past, old texts such as the Bible for example said Jesus' over Jesus's, today it doesn't matter. However, usage is ambiguous today, and to clearly define one over the other as a rule is idiocy.

ok I can agree with this Untitled definitely served a deeper purpose as far as the message but that doesn't mean it's a better piece of music.

the creativity on stillmatic alone puts it ahead for me. I mean rewind
Yeah. To me 'Rewind' is one of the best SONGS ever written. It's absolutely fantastic.

Untitled was another type of creativity though. An older, more mature man rapping about America and our culture. It's just great. They're both pinnacles of his creativity, just in different ways. That's all.

WTT is good but 8/10

Kany sells more then Jay now thou therefore he is more popular and has more attention. which is the main reason Jay all of a sudden wanted to do a joint album with the same guy he didn't want rapping in the 1st place

going platinum off the strngth of other artist (alicia keys) that wasn't a mistake he put her on the single

Jay went from doing songs with Beans and Bleek to Drake and Kid Cudi. yeah he's not hopping on the whats hot trend huh
Dude, you're acting if what I'm saying is some kind of stretch or reach. I could grab some reviews.

Metacritic has it at a 7.6 out of 10 (based on 40+ reviews). Still a hot album if you're in favor of technicalities.

In that case, Untitled is a 7.1, HHID 7.9.

Jay, WTT 7.6, BP3 6.5, American Gangster 8.3

"The possessive for "Jesus" is an exception to the rule. The only reason I can think of is long, long tradition. Follow the rule for adding apostrophe s for other names ending in s, but use the apostrophe only for Jesus."

"A singular word that ends in S (gas, Thomas, bass, for example) normally takes an apostrophe S ('s) to show possession (gas's, Thomas's, bass's). Only when the word ends in S because it's plural (gases, the Thomases, basses) does it take an apostrophe only (gases', the Thomases', basses'). That said...


"Both writing and punctuation are supposed to make it easier for someone else to read what you've written. The apostrophe indicates an omitted letter or letters (in the last sentence I skipped 'ha'. Since you pronounce the possessive of a noun which ends in 's' as though it ended '...ses', the apostrophe indicates the omission of the vowel sound, and so the possessive of Jesus should be written 'Jesus's'. Americans, especially the Microsoft spellchecker programmers, seem to use a slightly different language from other writers."


There you go, since using my own knowledge to respond to you is now considered "arrogant" lmao. I'll grab others views on the subject as you did. Does doing so make my point more valid now? lol.

To each his own, but Untitled as his second worst album?

Or even Lost Tapes behind God's Son?

I can agree with all those ratings in that context. untitled is still better then BP3 which is my whole point

Distant Relatives is better then WTT
You know, after all of that...I really don't give a fu*k about what you think is better.

However, some of you n*ggas will bash another artist for no fu*king reason. None. It makes you look stupid. Like the thread starter for example.

Oh, and using an apostrophe to show possession is in fact, a RULE. That rule shouldn't get omitted just because the word already ends in s, like I said earlier. Is it acceptable? Yes. Would Nas' be preferred as "right" over "Nas's" if it came down to following the rules of grammar? No.

I don't know how many ways to articulate or better yet, find a way to break down the fact (key word), that there is NO RULE. You can't create an exception if there is NO RULE.

If your plan was to run your point around in circles until I give up, it worked. I'm done with you. Your claims are unfounded and you choose to continue.

Some of you Nas fans or stans are fu*king disgusting using blanket statements like "If you don't like x you're y.

It's stupid, and almost immediately your opinion is null and void for being biased.

Like I said, using an 's to show possession is in fact a rule. No? Can you agree with that? So why would you just completely IGNORE THIS RULE simply because a word already ends with an s? You following?

I already said Jay was in my top 10 without question


it's just funny you "stans" can't go 1 thread without bringing up the words PLATINUM or sales.

I aint bashing Jay, I love some of his albums but some of his sh*t was doo


and the reason Jay was mentioned is because this thread is based off what he said you inbred
Dude are you stupid?

You're the one that said Jay-Z needs Kanye West to be relevant. How can I possibly counter such a claim without bringing numbers into the equation? Now I'm in the wrong for doing so?

You really didn't think that was going to happen?

I don't care where you think Jay or Nas is ranked. However, I'm not going to sit here and act as if Nas hasn't put out hot albums since Stillmatic. It just so happens that some of you f*ggots turn into something else and immediately bash Jay-Z. It's stupid, and you know what, I think you're stupid.

I just answered my own question, oh god.
