at 200 mill I would say his commercial success is just fine, not many rappers that can consistently go platinum / Gold the minimum



I could be wrong but I dont believe Nas is worth anywhere near 200 mill , if you have some proof to prove me wrong then more power to ya, but I honestly dont think he's even anywhere near 100 mill or even 50 mill. Last time I checked he still owed the IRS 6 million , and most sources in the past 5 years have estimated him between 15 to 30 mill.

Also how much you have in your bank account doesn't always necessarily equate to how commercially successful or relevant your music is in the mainstream.

My proof is he said it on the intro, so either you take his word for it or you don't.

I'll be honest. I never thought Jay was all that great. He was a better music business man obviously. But Nas will always be the better artist. That's the thing. Jay was always saved by his celebrity and business acumen. He was never all that as a MC/rapper. And nobody is gonna remember him for his "contributions" to Hip Hop. They're only going to talk about his money or what he did business wise. I have no opinion on Em because I was never a fan. So I don't have nothing to say about him. I was never into Eminem, so I can't comment.

this all the way...i do fu*k with EM tho..he just doesnt make my type of music regularly

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.

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

yeaaaah, I dont think I'm gonna believe that one without more proof than a rap bar. That's around where Forbes list people like Dre who've been in the game longer and have made wayyy bigger moves. I know better than to take what rappers spit in their bars as truth.

If you wanna believe him , that's fine with me, just dont try to quote/respond/rebuttal a comment of mine with something that is only backed up by a rap lyric.
