    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
    Fam just say YOU dont like his style of music. Nas has a few bangaz, hate me now, Made you look are a couple. The thing is these are CLASSICS that have more longevity than any of the little new age faggots current day music. All in all, Nas DOES NOT MAKE COMMERCIAL MUSIC. Youre just comparing his beatz with other commercial artist that gets club play. But thats not what Nas is. He knows this but dumb azz ignorant fans like Vlad dont know hiphop outside the fuckin radio

    What part of my post said I don't like his music?
    Take my word for it... I love Nas' music. I just believe his singles haven't hit as much as some other major artists. That's my only point in all of this

    There's a difference between good music and commercially viable music. (Very few artists are able to make meaningful music AND outsell thier peers)I prefer good music but I also can separate my preferences from what people buy and consume on the market.

    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

    Run it fam.

    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.


    He's a good speaker. He doesn't pause, good vocab. I've never seen a Salaam interview. He comes across as a bright dude.

    Watching this though, and reading through the thread, I think I might be wrong about Salaam being a cause of Nas' poor production. He makes bangerz, Nas just seems to prefer less active beats. He often chooses beats that won't detract from his verses.

    This might be a good thing, though. I know there are a few posters here who dislike Justblaze because his beats are often overproduced: lyricists find themselves competing with the beat. Nas seems to prefer to go for beats that have the opposite effect.

    Preemo aside Nastradamus sounds either forgettable or straight wack.

    Worst ever beat picker will always be a hype no matter who you label it with but why niggas pretend like Nas spits over fire beats all the time is beyond me

    Really?

    The first song you posted is Fur Elize(famous Beethoven composition) over Impeach The President.

    The second song you posted was unreleased.

    Try again.

    There is a lack of interpersonalness with interviews such as this. Rather being a sound board that allows an artists to project or express themselves it turns into an interrogation confessional.

    There is nothing wrong with the questions however the response to the interviewee become one sided and the simple man behind the camera creates a psychological omniscient voice and view. Jading the artists as well as the viewer.

    This shit enhances and projects his view over or beyond the interviewee in question. If you agree with him than it's more fuel for you to clap back or 'strengthen' your view and opinion while belittling the next mans.

    There is no balance or honesty to this. Especially with this topic. Shit is dated, why are we talking about wHack beat selections from over 10 years ago. Why is that relevant? Homie has dropped decent projects with at minimum decent beat selections since Stillmatic.

    Flat out agree with @aneed123

That's what's wrong with everybody now, they make being a gangsta or thug as the benchmark of being real.
