Pure and simple, the Trent Reznor of hip-hop.
Can go from gritty gangsta to poppy party tracks to vitriolic tirades against the American government and sound absolutely genuine while doing it.
The best lyricist in hip-hop at the moment.
-You rep me respectfully, that's how I rep for you
-Vote for who now? You're red, white and blue? I'm American too, but I ain't with the president's crew!
-Many tried, many died, come at Nas if you want a war, get it bloody....I got mine, I hope you got yourself a gun.
-I'm the leader, thats it, nobody higher Nobody touchin my crown, nobody dyin Nobody smoother, harder, tougher, believe it I'm much smarter, much more strategic.

Last three posters should quit rap and hang of a noose. First of all Jay-Z is a biter ,he bit from Biggie,Pac, Big L, Snoop, and Nas himself.Therefore he's fake and unoriginal . Nobody likes sell-outs come Uptown or even Bronx ..Catz aint feelin Hov
He survived the East Coast beef while Jay was suckin up to Badboy.and comparing Ether to Takeover is stupid cos half of them people that voted on hot97 are lil surburban wwhite kids

Illest rapper about, no doubt, wears the last real nigga name wid pride.

Not only speaks truth and knowledge (aint that rite Jay?) But y'all know every1 can relate.
"I am the truest, name a rapper that i aint influenced."

"Rockafeller died of AIDS, that was the end of his chapter
And that's the guy y'all chose to name your company after?
Put it together, I rock hoes, y'all rock fellas."

"I'm the man's man, a rapper's rapper
G - O - D S - O - N, they'll be none after"
"I was Scarface, Jay was Manolo
It hurt me when I had to kill him and his whole squad for dolo". - If y'all seen scarface you will relate, this is a slight attack on Jay

The best lyricist alive.
Nas is the best rapper ALIVE. The dead ones (B.I.G, Pac, Pun) were all better.
