Hands down my favorite rapper EVER is Nas…So this could go on all day. Longevity, premier presence and of course lyrics. The appreciation value of a lot of Nas lyrics are beyond measure. No way could I pick all of his greatest rhymes over the last 20 years. So I won’t even try. Here are just some of my favorite bars and verses of all time from my favorite rapper.
Queensbridge pay homage respect, Nas is a vet, acknowledge the rep, polished begets, N***as is this and that, Im just the best. – John Blaze
What’s real? When you know your man’s girl is a Hoe? and you don’t even let him know cause your f**ked her before? – Life We Chose
A thug changes and love changes and best friends become strangers…word up – The Message
Fat a$$ dissolving like cotton candy in a mouth that’s starving – Shootouts
Silk shirt and my chest show what a flirt, Halle Berry blew a kiss at the Barbra Streisand concert – It’s Mine
We can ride through the city no doubt but don’t say the car is topless, say the titties is out – Made You Look
I just want to roll a B-L-U-N-T and watch B-E-T, picture Amerie eating Rocsi, I wanna write hood movies like Posse and Five Heartbeats – Let’s Go Esco
Only Fox that I loved was the Red one, Only black man that Fox love is in jail or a dead one – Sly Fox
It drops deep as is does in my breath, I never sleep, cause sleep is the cousin of death – NY State of Mind
A lot of n***as scheming, some real some n***as fronting but Im a big dreamer so watch me come up with something – NY State of Mind 2
Your flow cheap as limousine liquor – Nasty
N***as fear what they don’t understand, hate what they can’t conquer, guess its just the theory of man became a monster – Hate Me Now
How could Nas be garbage? Semi-autos at your cartilage, Burner at the side of your dome, come out of my throne
I got this locked since 9-1, I am the truest; name a rapper that I ain’t influenced – Ether
Yes, I avoided some of the more popular Nas songs for you casual and mainstream listeners. Understand that this guy is why a lot of rappers are just “O.K” to me. There are literally over 1,000 lyrics that could have been used for this. I didn’t even cover every album. In MY WORLD Nas is the Number 1 FAVORITE but should be in EVERYBODY’S TOP 3!
