The industry usually changes a rappers focus and style. But, if it weren't for this and underground became commercial...the sh*t would be fire and rap music would "survive."

**As a side note tho, Im hella excited for his new album under Def Jam, I hear jigga is makin an appearence on it..
But Nas is still better than a lot fo the rookies emerging on the scene.

Nas vs

50 cent
the game

= Nas

I won't go as far as to say he's better than Jay-Z because my opinion will be a little biased sice I don't care too much for Jay-Z's lyrics or his beats but I do aknowledge the fact that he's better than a lot of other rappers.
