He'd be goat potential if he done what he's doing amongst the true greats.
Nas is great cause he stood/released amongst Goats Kane, G Rap, Pac, Snoop, Jay-z, 50, Eminem etc... even during Wayne's reign while being able to remain hot and never running out of skillful steam, not being the hottest out during the weakest/lowest point of quality/skillful music in rap.
Basically, the standard is extremely low. That's why Drake shining.
Think NBA players averaging 4.5" tall then a 5.8" comes around. He'd look so tall=Drake.
Uh, he is claiming he's god. The statement/title is objective than being a sub-god. Yes any type of claim to be god is offensive. Whether from 5% or anyone. But this an objective title here. If this song is real then It's out of line, period.
Thing is GOD is not dethroned cause of anyone's claim. Kanye will die and answer to God. and God will live eternally.
Well put. I concur. Poll not needed, for the point needed to be made.
Illamtic wasn't even receive as it is today then when it was released. it later became a bandwagon opion that many would just go with.
Illmatic is just lyrics, it's not too musically ill. Doggystle may not had lyrics on Nas, but many dope lyrics on there.
Hip Hop is no poem, if so we wouldn't need the music with it.
Doggystyle gave incredibility dope music and rap at the time.
To be honest, other than being hailed as a classic illmatic is so dated, Doggystyle is still musically fresh, as if it's current music.
An excuse is that, the song charted based on sales alone and not radio, or video.
It was only added to radio after it charted #27. It was in fact the most added song to radio.
With the radio additions you can bet it will be back in position.
I know it sound like excuses, but it's facts i stated.
