Yeah, I do think Jay Z's rep suffers a bit from his general association with acts the "community" may disapprove of, but I have to go with Nas. Some of his songs are boring, but lyrically he's no.1 and that swings it for me.

RD is a classic because it focused on what drug dealing and project living can do to the MIND of a person instead of promoting and glorifying it.
Pac did that a good four or five years before Jay did it. It is not a classic, every path Jay has trodden in his career was already well worn.

As for Nas' flow... I don't know what to say. His flow is still immaculate as Life is Good proves.

Um...why should someone have to explain to you why Nas is better than Jay-Z? (even though Jay-Z is pretty good).

Cos that's the point of a music discussion forum, we discuss music.

True, Tupac may have done it, but his flow isn't as versatile as Jay's and his beat selection isn't as good.

I'll give you the flow thing, I don't think he was that skilled an MC, especially earlier on in his career at the time he was making songs like Brenda's Got a Baby and Souljah's Story. Pac's flow was kinda one dimensional.

I never had a problem with Pac's beat selection though. He's got many timeless tracks all through his career which I think have aged well.

I don't agree but I rate pretty much all of the guys you chose.

Fair enough I guess.
