That's funny, because he had you bi*ches not saying sh*t when Hit Em Up Dropped. He didn't run, but moved to the best side.




Nas was the one crying himself to sleep because Pac dissed him, and Piggie was begging him join up with him to take on Makaveli, but he turned him down because he worshiped Pac.

lol nas and biggie had beef with each other in the mid 90s until pac started dissing the whole east coast.

the thing is Illmatic takes me back to those days...Nas painted a beautiful canvas with that....plus it depends on how old a person was when illmatic came out....i mean the impact it had was tremendous =, they compared him to RAKIM......RAKIM!!!!!!!!! I mean c'mon thats it right there it doesnt get any better than that, even if people like me would never compare anyone to the GOD emcee...still to be put in that category is the ultimate praise...i will say 36 chambers would be my number 1, then in rotation would be black moon-enta da stage, ice cube-amerikkas most wanted, nas-illmatic, mobb deep-the infamous....

lol Ya'll make Nas FANS look lame af. NY/ Eastcoast niccaz will always claim FIVE PERCENT/ BS esoteric raps as LYRICAL. Thats the only distinction they have in MUSIC. If you take that BS out of the equation you are left with some pretty dull ryhmes. Im a NAS fan, but PAC is the GOAT and MATW is better. Ill has not aged well at all.

Me and 2Pac were soldiers of the same struggle.

A vote for Nas is a vote for 2pac.

Illmatic was overrated. Not even Nas hottest album? Stillmatic was overall better. Me against the world was a better album. Y'all Fucc a.ss Ny n*ggaz is all I can say?

This poll is too close.

Getting shot 9-10 times in 2 years isn't a musical talent, just makes you a dumbass.
