your screenname says it all

lost tapes(2001) is anything but recent... and is 5/5
but it was all old material

This is NOW... nas best tracks NEVER make the album

i love lost tapes.. but WackMatic, and God's Trash were terrible, and i can''t even listen to disc 1 on sd, and disc 2 is pretty bad too...

J Love Nas Finest Vol. 1, 2, 3 or 4 > Any of them albums

Illmatic = hip-hop classic
it was written = 4.5/5
i am 4.5/5

"I am" isn't that good... that entire album is very sketchy...
Stillmatic and God Son ware both way better than I am...
Wackmatic? there is only one questionabe track on that album.
I am = 3.5
Stillmatic = 4.5
God's Son = 4

THIS IS AN IMPOSSIBLE LIST!!! You cant just pick one of these doods...

gotta agree...

Word. Evreyone has there own opinion bout evreything. its tough to single out one or two single mcs out of the thousands that are out there. the main reason people like some mcs is because they can relate to them in some way. Thats y it makes it so hard choosing just one. because everyone was brought up diffrently...

Favor for a a Favor is definitely a banger, but I'm not talking about production here and niether is the thread... Almost every song on Stillmatic was deep lyrically... Rewind and One Mic are classic tracks, same with Ether, and Destroy & Rebuild but his lyrics went far beyond traditional street hop... he had deep political messages and strong social commentaries on almost every track. Particularly Rule, My Country and Every Ghetto. Dude shows more lyricl ability on any two of those tracks than most dudes wll in a full album and this thread is about Lyrics.

see rewind is crazy overated to me, cause it takes no skill to read a story backwards... and one mic just wasn't a big deal to me... and beats matter to me, i don't need to hear like a beat for mtv, i wanna hear a soulful primo banger or pete rock bring in the funk or a chill melody.. he just picks garbage beats with too much bass that sound akward.. but as for lyrics, i don't question his content, but i don't like how he can not rhyme his bars (prodigy style) and just get a free pass, i judge every rapper the same, and i just feel like nas gets a free pass (similar to 50) when hes sloppy with his strutcure and bars, that other rappers get hell for... stillmatic is better than god's son and streets discple i'll give u that... i guess i never really liked ether, i never liked takeover much ether, i thought they were both songs based on 'i'm tougher', 'i'm cooler' and 'i fu*ked ya bi*ch'.... jay spit a few facts, nas did too.. but on the whole i was disappointed in that battle... my least fav battle... neither of em said sh*t really till after jay 'meet the parents'.. was ether a good song? yeah.. was i dissappointed? yeah.. i just feel like his flow became so monotonous, and his content is too similar and hes all about the betterment of black men? but his actions have NEVER reflected that... he's a self centered bi*ch... seriously 10 years ago, nas was my fav rapper, i liked nas before i liked tupac.. i ain't even gonna front... but nas lost his swagger to me... i guess thinkin about it tho i do agree stillmatic isn't that bad, but it wasn't in the same league as the first 3 or lost tapes... but that was 4 years ago.. thats not current enough to get on my list

I am was his most pop album so i see why u like it lol. it depends on what your true definition of a lyricist is. if thats the case nas is the best right now. he tells stories, uses punchlines (every once in a while), and words u might need a dictionary for. what about juelz santana? or cam'ron? k!lla is mad nice and kanye west!!

I agreed with you for a bit... "I Am" was definitely more pop than his previos efforts... but then you started spouting off with that nonsense.

Nonsense about Dipset and Kanye...
Camron could have been on there in the days of "Confessions of Fire" or "S.D.E.", but nowadays he is slowly become worse and worse...
Juelz just sucks and Kanye is ok, but not best lyricist in the game or anywhere near it.

Nas disguised his voice and rapped as a bi*ch on the Disciple album... Dude has put out more creativity than anyone else in the game... The backwards track, the gun track, the letter track... Nasir Jones, illest lyricist now...

What was the question again?
