Nas Updates: Based on everything that has transpired from the start of his career to where he is now and what the future holds for him, I can confidently state that Nas is without a doubt the greatest hip-hop artist of all time.

After all course, many fans and critics will disagree with the statement, with some yapping about rappers with more record sales and awards, others complaining about underappreciated underground artists with more skill and style, and then there will be the biassed haters who will disagree strongly and diatribe without much elaboration.

In this example, we acknowledge Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, and Eminem as rappers who deserve to be discussed and debated. But, before I go into the best ever discussion, I’d want to bring attention to something that most people are unaware of.

In 1985, I (Nas) started listening to hip-hop for the first time. Top 40, rock, heavy metal, new wave, and adult contemporary music were all heavily played on Los Angeles radio stations during the time.

The earliest indications of hip-hop were not heard on the radio until 1983 when the rise of popping and breakdancing revealed electro hip-hop on local radios with musicians like Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Melle Me, and others.

Unfair judgment can also be influenced by differences in song style. How can one accurately judge a lyricist’s excellence when you identify two distinct decades with two different styles?

Most musicians are known for a song they wrote or an album they released, but no one has ever been able to generate so much buzz from a 16-line verse of a song.

Nas made an immediate influence on hip-hop when his guests contributed to the song “Live at the Barbeque” with Main Source, Akinyele, and Fatal in 1991. It was these 16 bars that cemented Nas’ place in hip-hop history as the birth of a future king.
