    Boring flow as well

    Can't make music for the whip to bump out loud

    Can't make club bangers has no music for the club or a social setting

    Has some terrible albums I Am, Nastradamus, Streets Disciple, Hip Hop Is Dead, Untitled

    Has no songs that are bangers

    Doesn't have a big female fan base. Fans of his music are male hip hop head bloggers


    But a superb and excellent technical lyricist and emcee 2nd greatest ever emcee and lyricist ever

    If I ruled the world is the only song after illmatic that can compete with Stan ,Love the way you lie,Lose yourself The way I am, and if I want to reach I can say Em played a big part of the success in the song with Drake (forever).

    My point is Em has singles throughout his career that hit top 40 and simple minded people will sing along to.

    I like Nas more than all of the people I listed but facts are facts. He's not a singles driven artist and single success reflects how catchy the masses think you are.

    Ether was more popular than all those songs.

    Ether meant more to hip-hop, but Em got play in nonurban markets. Lose yourself won a Grammy AND an Oscar.

    I think what people aren't able to express is that they don't like nas' song writing. Shadyteam said she doesn't like his hooks and I think that's what it boils down to. People just can't sing along to his tunes so they say it's the beat

    Nas tells stories, gives a lot to think about and is usually creative with his approach lyrically. It's pretty much the opposite of popular songs today where they're catchy but the content is garbage and it's not creative.

    The other legends of his caliber who Vlad is referring to have catchier tunes. Jay, Big, Dmx, Ice cube, Eminem are all Legends with better singles than Nas because they're catchier.That's really the only flaw they can give his career post illmatic









    Just a few banger singles that shit on the catchy theory being presented...

    I would honestly cut this list shorter.

    Premo, Rock, and Large Professor make up some of nas' biggest tracks

    I can understand why someone would feel that way. Salaam isn't the problem IMO, I just feel like Nas picks beats that HE likes from Salaam but the rest of us are like why?

    I think Salaam even said Nas doesn't business about what people think of his selections or if they'll like it or not, he selects what he wants so it is what it is.

    Salaam has produced to many good beats for Nas to partake in this foolishness. Most of his production for Nas has been fire. Nas has picked some wack beats from other producers too.







    LOL @ Vlad's corn ass interviewing Salaam about Nas picking the worst beats.

    As media and technology eveolved, it allowed groupie niggaz, stans to become what is now Vlad, Akademic, non-accredited journalists and every fan to be an overly opinionated critic.

    They caused listeners to put the wrong focus on the art.

    This is why wack stuff is winning all the time.

    I don't mind vlad once or twice stating his opinion on nas beat selection, but he going on this shit for years now. Let it go. We understand your position, no need to keep repeating the shit all day like shady team or the midget fucker from that pussy city in va

    Overblown complaint. Nas production is fine.

    vlad and shady team gtfoh

    Nas' production suits him at the end of the day. We can't deny that he does have some disappointing beats, but that seems to speak more to his loyalty to Salaam Remi than any failure on his part as he easily has as many good beats as he does subpar ones.

    Open challenge: name as many wack nas beats as you can and I guarantee someone can name as many sick ones

    I could easily
