Nas- Greatest East Coast Rapper of All Time!!!!

Best East Coast Album of All Time-  Illmatic

Best East Coast Rapper of All Time- Nas

..........Biggie shouldn't always be regarded as the best just because he died, put Biggies first two albums against Nas's first two and I think Nas is way better.  Big is second best though.  And everybody else is far behind those two.


And this Lost Tapes album is bangin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rakim is the best east coast rapper...Nas put out the best East Coast album though ("Illmatic" of course)...But it's your opinion, and it's not a bad one neither...PeAce

He's off the hook and one of the best. I agree with the other about Rakim being the best though.

As did Nas

Yo, I'm the N the A to the S-I-R
And If I wasn't, I must've been Escobar

Also the 21 emcee theory line from Pete Rock and Eminem

I take seven ill drums put 'em in a line
And add seven more snares to make it combine
It'll take seven more horns before I start to rhyme
Now that twenty-one beats made up at the same time

I take seven kids from Columbine, stand 'em all in line
Add an AK-47, a revolver, a nine
a Mack-11 and it oughta solve the problem of mine
and that's a whole school of bullies shot up all at one time

You could go on forever

I can't decide which east coast MC is the dopest ever, Rakim's  much more consistant than Nas, but "Illmatic"'s the dopest east coast album ever to this day

Nas is defo in my top 5 MC's/Rappers of all time list, but i'd personally give the crown of the Greatest Eastcoast Rapper/MC to Rakim. I mean if it wasn't for Ra Nas prolly wouldn't be the MC he is today, Ra was a HUGE influence on him and if you listen to his music you can tell, thats why Nas gets compared to Ra alot. I know alot of peeps consider Biggie to be the greatest but he's not for me, he's not even in my top 5 Eastcoast MC's/Rappers to be honest.




I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.

illmatic is the dope album. iww production is trash besides a few songs. stillmatic was the mediocore comeback. lost tapes is more like a greatest hits cd of old unreleased material.

Y'all are trippin' by not mentioning Chuck D as #2 to Rakim...
and trippin' even harder by not recognising "Nation of Millions" being the best album out of the East Coast

Up for debate, but I think Biggie was just too damn good of a storyteller. His flow destroyed all but Rakims, but, in the very end, Rakim holds the crown of All-Time N.Y. King.

Rakim's lyrics are bitten by everyone, and every rapper out today listened to Rakim as the person they respected. His flow was perfect, and his lyrics were what makes him the best. storytelling was alright, not better than Nas or Biggie, but his lyrical skillz and his flow out do theirs, plus his message goes over Big, and runs even with Nas. Biggie and Nas about even in storytelling, lyrical about even too, but Biggie's flows crush Nas more so than Nas having more meaning than Biggie, 'cause Ready to Die saves Biggies ass, but his smooth flow that make some shit lyrics dound tight has to bring him up. Chuck D has message, and storytelling, but flow is average, and lyrical is also. Though his message more than makes up for that, his not on the level of Nas or Rakim.

Nasty(Illmatic period) Nas iz prolly one of the biggest eastcoast hopes ever, But his inconsistency during his career not only stops him from being The best eastcoast cat ever but also at times threw him out of the top10 Eastcoast(during his dark ages:IWW to Nastradamus)....he's always been supreme flowise and vocally- but if he wanted to be a background vocalist he shouldn't have made solo albums, It's not enough to be a dope vocalist to be considered the best Rapper. Bottom line is Nas ain't touching BIG when it comes to storytelling, focus and structuring lyrics...even his 10 track- flawless- Illmatic was outshined By Big'z "ready to die" not only in the quantity of the quallity\classic material(since "R2D" was just as perfect and than some) but also in personallity(due to Bigz abillityz to personalize his material to the point the listener is carried into his lyrics, almost phisiclly) . Some might speculate "Life After Death" was not on par wit Big'z debut, but if a number of tracks were to be kept off the album there would be still enough material to make it a classic, Nasz 3 follow upz to Illmatic stayed  sub-par for 7 years.  my top eastcoast goes like this(due to this day):
1.Big
2.Rakim(yea he was more influential than Big no doubt, but Influence is not what Im talking about right here, Im talking bout quallity)
3.Jay-z
4.Nas.
We are all human beings isn't that a good enough reason for peace?

Nas has 4 great albums.  Pac didn't even have 4 great albums.  (not counting his posthumous remixed ish)

What other rapper has had 4 great albums?

Illmatic
It Was Written
Stillmatic
Lost Tapes
