I don't know.. Nas is good and can make classic songs, but half his songs are mediocre sh*t. Lupe's more creative and more energetic on the mic.

I bet you cats only feel Lupe is cause he's complex.
But don't understand WTF dude is saying.
I don't give a fu*k if you post up Lupe's best verses, it will never be compared to NaS' body of work.
NaS is a living legend in the game and Lupe has only done one album.
Even Lupe said when he works he listens to It Was Written for inspiration.
So what does that tell you? NaS has laid his soul into making music for cats to follow. I understand that people have their own personal preference, but be realistic. Put your hate aside and open your damn eyes. Illmatic is the blueprint for any lyricist.

Lets not forget about all of Nas' unreleased material. He has about 3 Illmatics in there. Lupe has a better flow and he is more technically sound. But, Nas is better at everything else. Pure lyricists don't have to rely on trivial literary devices all of the time. Lupe has really dense word-play but he relies on it too much. The absolute best lyricists can paint you a picture or really say something meaningful without punchlines or wordplay. Lupe has a load of potential but he is already talking about quitting, which indicates he may not reach that potential. Nas has a whole career and Lupe has one really good album. That is not enough.

Nas fans are brainwashed calling him the GOAT.

Lyrically and musically he's one demensional. How the fu*k can the GOAT get ripped on a track by some dude named HORSE!?

3 Illmatics? fu*k outta here. You're overrating the sh*t out of this cat. You already know what to expect lyrically when you listen to that dude. He's going to rap about some sh*t that will have most heads looking in an encyclopeida and forget what the fu*k he was rapping about.

His story telling is so overrated. Lupe can tell a story better than Nas and not even forfiet the flow or the swag on the track. If Jay was more lyrical you would get Lupe becuase he's complete as a lyricst, unlike Nas, the one demensional rapper.

I love Lupe as much as the next dude, but he has yet to tell a story as well as Undying Love or Blaze a 50(Rediculously underrated.)

Nas wishes he had wordplay and a flow like this.
A drug dealer's dream
Stash CREAM keys on a triple beam
Five hundred SL green, ninety-five nickle gleam
Condominium, thug dressed like a gentleman
Tailor made ostrich, Chanel for my women friend
murderin, numbers on your head while I'm burglarin
Shank is servin em, whassup to all my n*ggaz swervin in
New York metropolis, the Bridge brings apocalypse
Shoot at the clouds feels like, the holy beast is watchin us
Mad man my sanity is goin like an hourglass
Gun inside my bad hand I sliced tryin to bag grams
I got hoes that used to milk you
n*ggaz who could've k!lled you
Is down with my ill crew of psychoes
Nas Escobar movin on your weak production
Pumpin corruption in the third world we just bustin


Look how this n*gga nas painted a picture with lyrics but at the same time k!lled mobb deep on there own song dude you might as well give this one up cause you going to get exposed as a bias dumb fu*k on this one.

Everybody knows nas is the goat stop crying ain't no lyrics of lupe you can post fu*king with the longevity of nas sh*t.

He has to many tight a.ss lyrics that you know cant compare to anyone else and im giving you amateur sh*t i ain't even pulled out the top ten sh*t yet.

jay stans stay getting ethered you need to stop holding a grudge against nas like a girl who's prom date didn't show up.

I'm mad this thread is 4 pages. the nas hate is atrocious. the haters are going to ohhla.com to find any lupe verse they don't understand so they can say it's better than nas' career and sh*t. it's disgusting.

Hard to paint a better picture than Nas...... Plus Lupe doesnt have the catalog.....


Pushin drop-tops, Stacy Lattisaw tapes, the 80's had us all apes
Youngest gorillas up to bat at home plate
That was a uncanny era, guns in my pants
Yeah X-Clan hair, with dreads at the top of my fade
Homicide and feds on the blocks where I played, b-ball
That's when I wondered was I here for the cause, or be-cause
Cause Ray Charles could see the ghetto
Was told to stay strong and I could beat the Devil
Cause yo, I used to play Apollo balcony seats
Watchin n*ggaz swing razors in the front row, then out in the streets
The car show, 560's, chemical afros
Acuras pumpin Super Lover Cee and Casanova
Live chicks be, a.sses bustin out of they clothes
Wearin lip gloss, big door knockers pealin they earlobes
So where them years go? Where the old gold beers and cheers go?
But now them shorties here doe, so

[Chorus]
The doo rags are back, fitted hats, snorkels and furs
Riker's Island bustin, still packed, what's the word?
The drinkers stay drinkin, or puffin they herb
And I'm, still enjoyin life's ride; one mo' time
The doo rags are back, fitted hats, snorkels and furs
Riker's Island bustin, still packed, what's the word?
The drinkers stay drinkin, or puffin they herb
And I'm, still enjoyin life's ride; right?

[Nas]
Political thugs in shark suits persuade us to pull triggers
in army boots, yellin "Join the armed forces!"
We lost the Vietnam War, intoxicated poisons
Needles in arms of veterans instead of bigger fortunes
There's still a lot of n*gga callin in the corporate offices
War in the ghetto, we crabs in a barrel, they torture us
They won't be servin the beast too long
The murderers wearin police uniforms, confederate flags I burn
Beat Street breakers were dancin to the music I chose
And Peachtree Atlantic crackheads was tootin they nose
in frozen corners of Chicago, loaded up Llama's children
with fo'-fo's, and double-revolvers
We devil incarnates, headed for jail
Where Shell gas company in South Africa be havin us k!lled
Your paper money was the death of Christ
And all these shorties comin up just resurrect your life
It's like a cycle

[Chorus]

[Nas]
n*ggaz used to wear rags on they hair when it was fried up
That's when we were lied to, buyin hair products
Back before my generation, when our blackness started disintegratin
'til awareness started penetratin
The styles come from prison, they used potatoes makin liquor
just to prove we some creative n*ggaz
Turnin nothin into somethin, is God work
And you get nothin without struggle and hard work
War is necessary to my n*ggaz in chains
From Greene to Sing-Sing, I'm wantin y'all to know one thing
The hardest thing is to forgive, but God does
Even if you murdered or robbed, yeah it's wrong, but God loves
Take one step toward him, he takes two toward you
Even when all else fail, God support you
I done it, got God Son on my stomach
My heart and my lungs was affected from Henny's and gettin blunted
Do your body right and it loves you back
You only get one life, and yo because of that
I'm still blazin, goin out for the cause
Still rockin stockin caps, not for the waves, obeyin no laws
And it's like that

Lupe thinks It Was Written is the best album ever, and he thinks "Take it in Blood" is the 3rd best Hip Hop song ever. Lupe's problem is that he needs to be more concise in his bars sometimes. It is like when you write a paper or article, and you put a bunch of words in there when you could have said the same thing in a shorter and clearer manner. I'm not knockin Lupe cause I'm a huge fan but y'all buggin.

I think a comparison of Lupe to Biggie would be more sufficient.
