When it comes to the whole Jay vs. Nas thing, it's getting easier and easier to argue for Nas......Jay-Z has fallen off quite a bit lyrically (still good, but not quite what he used to be), while Nas has been very consistent for his entire career. Say what you will about his albums, but his lyrics were never the problem, it was always his production.
i agree with this jay best days are behind them he far from being a great lyricist now and days imo

Lupe Fiasco, Jay-Z (from '96 to '03), Canibus, Rakim, Cormega, Black Though, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Chino XL, Ras Kass, Big Punisher, Kool G Rap > Nas. He's not even the greatest lyricist from QUEENS.
Jump off the Brooklyn Bridge stanley.

Jay's verse on Shiny Suit Theory:
In this manila envelope the results of my insanity
Quack said I crossed the line between real life and fantasy
Can it be the same one on covers with Warren Buffet
Was ducking the undercovers, was warring with motherfu*kers?
Went from warring to Warren, undercovers to covers
If you believe in that sort of luck your screws need adjusting
In the world of no justice and black ladies on the back of buses
I'm the immaculate conception of rappers-slash-hustlers
My God it's so hard to conceive
But it all falls perfect I'm like autumn is to trees
The doc interrupted, he scribbled a prescription for some Prozac
He said: "take that for your mustard, boy
You must be off your rocker
If you think you'll make it off the strip before they 'Pac ya
n*gga you gotta be psychotic
Or mixing something potent with your vodka
It takes a lot to shock us
But you being so prosperous is preposterous
How could this nappy headed boy from out the projects
Be the apple of America's obsession?
You totally disconnected with reality
Don't believe in dreams
Since when did black men become kings"

Still good but not quite what he used to be??? Just stop please
krypton u my n*gga but this was wack weak sauce imo

I think people discredit Lupe because of his nerdy image and annoying far left views. I can't bring myself to say he's more lyrical than Nas but deep down I know he is more technically involved in his bars. He loves to code everything he writes and throw in hidden meanings. I think Nas beats him as far as relatability, stroytelling, and a few other areas.

i wonder how they came to that conclusion but i think Nas that artist that gets deep but not so you can't understand whether or not if you listen to hip hop on the other hand jay-z lyrical but he more business minded..lupe and kendrick you have to consider them up and coming so its hard to make a argument for them.
