    Lol..........if you take Kim, drugs, and trying to kill his mom the only thing you have is Asher Roth.


    And what does nas tell storys of? getting back from vegas to find his wife getting fucked then shooting them both then shooting himself, or a story backwards about shooting somebody? or shootouts?

    it's less impressive given that pharoahe monch came up with that concept first.


    plus he did it from a bullets perspective

    but if we do that than stan isn't impressive because nas did the letter thing first.

    in fact any story telling song isn't impressive because sllick rick brought it to the table as a whole.

    you're missing the point that eminem isn't as vivid as nas is

    Huh? Nas's is one of the most versatile emcees in the game. He can go gangsta, political,and storytelling. Do yourself a favor and peep his catalog.

    there's building on an existing idea and putting a twist on it, & then there is straight lifting another person's idea. the former shows you have a brain ... I have absolutely no respect for the latter. anyways .. all this is subjective and you losers can argue in circles all day if you want. that bullshit marshall song was my cue to leave though ...


    enjoy

    I spend money on all nas albums except hhid and untitled, im a nas fan and agree with you, my argument is that em is just as good as far as story telling is concerned..watch all of this vid and you might understand what im sayin..

    the thing about stan is that it is out of the realm of certain folks everyday lives...
    the people/characters in "Shootouts" is diverse and I know that I can identify with the characters and story...


    This will get overlooked for being a "black thing" smh.

    This is a dumb thread....I'm a Nas and Em fan..I have most of there albums not all...and Both are really great storytellers in there own right...Both have lived completely different lives so they have different stories to tell...It's not em's fault if you don't understand his stories or relate to them compared to Nas's....I don't relate to ems shit at all But I respect his ability to rhyme/rap/write a good song.

    so to answer the dumb question can Em tell a story like the one Nas did..yeah he prolly could but it's not his style and anyone who has listened to him knows that.
    rap mysterio

    A dumb thread received a paragraph from a smart guy like yourself....... ummmm that's very interesting.

    Off to analyze how my thread can be smarter........

    "Nas is perhaps contemporary rap's greatest innovator in storytelling. His catalog includes songs narrated before birth ('Fetus') and after death ('Amongst Kings'), biographies ('UBR [Unauthorized Biography of Rakim]') and autobiographies ('Doo Rags'), allegorical tales ('Money Is My Bitch') and epistolary ones ('One Love'), he’s rapped in the voice of a woman ('Sekou Story') and even of a gun ('I Gave You Power')."-writer Adam Bradley

    Sorry em isn't on Nas' level when it comes to the stories just accept that. Em is better at rhyme schemes tho

    Never said I was smart I never went to college...I'm just saying it's a dumb question to ask.."Hey can Em write a song like THIS ONE"....when he's prolly never experienced any of the things Nas is talking about...They are 2 completely different types of rappers/Artist..Nas would never write a song about his mom saying nasty/disgusting shit and Em would never write a song about UFO's and all the crazy shit that's going on in the world today
