I Agree back when EM came out I didn't think anyone could out rap him.Em was a fu*king monsta*but his gimmick,not skill but gimmick wore off and he just had to many mental problems.He whole persona got corny.

Em really could've been the goat but he wasn't stable.

Em fell off years ago and I cant name the last album I liked from him.

2002 Eminem show. 10 years. no way he measures up to Nas or Jay who came out in 94 and 96 and still hold it down today.

Life Is Good is horrible.

Nas is a great rapper but a horrible artist. can't write a song to save his life. Just bars and bars of nothingness. No creativity.

when it's all said and done Jay and Em will be remembered as musicians on the level of Elton John and Sting with grammy's and chart topping hits while Nas will be some n*gga from Queens that used to rap
I need to get my eyes checked

I keep reading this post and its saying Nas isnt creative

It's late and I'm mad tired. I should have worded my post differently. I agree with you 100% bro. I just quoted you because you said you couldn't remember the last time em even put out a quality album and it dawned on me that it's been 10 years already.

I know ppl are entitled to their opinions, but I just don't see how some people in this thread can realistically look at Nas and jay's career's and think em is on their level.

Nothing has changed for me. Nas is still number 1 and Jay is still number 2. Jay-Z could still make a classic album, I'm not so sure Eminem could.

You don't think Em and Jay have reached the level where they can make the music they want and the sh*t will still sell? maybe not as much as a mainstream sounding album would but they'll still go platinum especially Em dude can drop just about anything and it will move units.
The thing is though, the music they make is the music they want to make. People need to understand that they music they make to cater their fans, whomever they may be, as well as progressive, particularly if you look at someone like Kanye as well, the problem with hip hop fans in particular is that if its not catered to them then the album must be trash, even though a Kanye, Em, Jay have a fanbase that extends far beyond a hip hop traditionalist.

Em and Jay live under different circumstances than Nas, and not only is their creativity effected greatly by their success and celebrity, they also have different expectations at their labels. Nas has tried to crossover in the past but labels know he's just as successful or more so just being able to do him especially in today's industry. So he enjoys that freedom more.


Em just needs to get out the house and live life, you can't really create interesting art when you spend most of your time locked up in your house not doing shyt besides watching television, running on the treadmill and recording. Where the hell you gonna find inspiration ? That's why we hear all this pseudo slim shady shyt back in his music. He has to use his imagination, since he has very little inspiration from real life. His technical skills stay in flawless form tho.

As far as Jay goes , I feel his perspective has become jaded as well. All he does nowadays is phuck beyonce, hop in and out of planes, and mingle with rich folk and celebrities all day long. He also lives in a distorted version of reality which is detrimental to his art and stifles his creativity, but that's the price they both have to pay for success.


Nas on the other hand hasn't had the fortune of coming across such commercial success so he still is able to find inspiration by being able to intermittently live a regular life for a day here and there.
Salute to u sir. This is the best post I've read debating the three artist in a long time. You've hit every point perfectly. As a fan of all three, nas still has it in him to make gritty music. And this life is good album took me by suprise, I did not think anyone could still make classics like this in today's industry

I salute Psylence2k as well, he said it perfectly. Also, Nas has an AZ-like Flawless Flow on this Album, which goes well with these well-produced instrumentals. All we need now is that Nas and AZ Double Album called Hip-Hop Resurrection and I can die a happy man.

Eminem and Jay-Z need to step their sh-t up. thats the thing about Nas, while its clear Jay and Eminem steer towards commerical records, and songs for the masses...Nas sticks with making music geared towards hip hop fans. Nas is on a whole other level then these two right now. "BP3" and "Recovery were both weak as fu-k, while "Life Is Good" has all the makings of a classic album.

I mean this song "Worlds An Addiction"....is this real life? Nas destroys this track in a way i never knew




Nas is clearly the best out of the Big Three right now, if you say otherwise....you most likely are a warrior/stan.
production is sick.but as usual,a whole lotta bars sayin absolutely nothin
