Nas
 
Any Nas fans out there? What does everyone think about him? Whats your favorite album of his? Personally, I like "It Was Written" and "Stillmatic" although I am a big fan of a lot of his stuff.

I think of him as one of the better rappers out there. Im not too familiar with alot of his stuff though. "I Can" was an excellent song though. I like him.

I think that everyone can at least respect Nas. He is one of the greatest. I own all of his albums. This is how i rank his albums:
1. Illmatic- This album is unf*ckwitable
2. It Was Written
3. God's Son
4. Stillmatic
5. Lost Tapes
6. Nastradamous- this album gets very unfairly sh*t on
7. I Am

Very impressive list of albums there. Cant wait for lost tapes 2, and a new full album

I'm a fan of early Nas mostly, but some of his new stuff is really good like "One Mic". My favorite albums of his have to be "Illmatric", "It Was Written", and "I Am." Those are all classic albums with classic songs.

I Am and It Was Written are not classics, by a long shot.

Illmatic is Nas's masterpiece, and one of raps best albums.

I don't know why you say that. They're definitely classics. Maybe not as well known or as well thought of, but definitely definitely should be. I don't see agree that Illmatic should get all the praise.

A classic hip hop album is generally defined as an album that had an effect on the overall direction of the genre, and was basically perfect from start to finish

I'm not saying IWW and I Am aren't good albums, in fact I think they're great, but they're not classics. You would have a very hard time finding an educated head who would put them as classics

Rockafella Skank 02-26-2004 07:26 PM

I guess I should say... "classic Nas albums". I didn't mean classic rap albums.

"I Am" is not a classic Nas album. I think its his worst one. On the other hand, It Was Written is definatly a classic Nas album. Not as good as Illmatic though
