This is suppose to be an intellegent thread. Things like "Jay-Z sucks floppy, donkey dick" make you sound dumb.

Jay-z I Think He Is More Consistent But Both Are Probably Top 5 And Atleast Top 10 For Me So It Was A Hard Desicion To Make.

I'm voting for Nasty Nas, EVEN though I think Takeover is way hotter than Ether. But if you look at it on the whole, Nas is way better.

Nasir Jones. Hov's a really talented emcee too though, but Nas is a god emcee. He cant be touched. 50 needs to leave Nas alone

Nas has the best lyrics and is quite popular but jay z has more rep and a better sound. Jay z raps about stupid shit Nas raps about the street and whats going down the real shit

don't forget that a brother's got to eat... jayz isn't stupid all the time... sometimes, those words have meaning...
and when they do... dang... so i think nas and jayz will be a great combination together...

you don't listen to hova do you... i picked nas, but half of yall here sound like you don't actually even listen to nas or hova....

pros of nas:
illmatic (one of the best albums from the golden era, nas came absolutley incredible on this)
it was written (dope dope dope album, when this shit first dropped cats hated cause it wasn't illmatic, spin that shit now and everyone will realize the truth, it's near illmatic)
the lost tapes (this doesn't need explaining)

cons of nas:
completley sold out and tried to flip his style

lost his flow

dropped about 4 WHACK as fuck albums.

fronts on that gang$ta shit like woah

does duets with his wifey

-----------------

pros of hova

dropped reasonable doubt, another golden era classic, shit is straight heat hova comes incredible on this one too

the blueprint volume 1 (doesn't need exlpaining)

streetz is watchin DVD

illest voice/flow in the game possibly (see big L - da graveyard and yall will get this, first time the world heard hova and everyone was blown away)

he adapted to the game and has always been in the spotlight unlike nas, and has remained HOVA the entire time, never changed who he was for anybody.

the man is an entrapanour, dope clothes, dope record, dope label.

cons :

his beat selection on some albums is whack as fuck, not my style just aint feelin some of that shit.

comes out with some bubblegum shit, does duets with beyonce...

paying homage is one thing, but when someone can cut a 7 min track of you bitin lines...well that should be a hint that you don't need to "pay that much homage"


overall:

both MCs are/were incredible, i feel illmatic a whole lot more then reasonable doubt(no disrespect to reasonable doubt, that shit is incredible) but nas is a better lyricist, hova def has a doper delivery though. but damn this one really comes to to opinion i guess.

yall can learn a thing or 2 from me, this is how you should respond, the responses in threads like these and the pete rock vs premiere and all that are bullshit, yall are gonna get heated from this but %75 of this fourm is dickriders, and thats my word. PEACE

Nas is a better lyricist but Jay-z's delivery is flawless, its a close one but i have to give the slight edge to Nas

Nas no question. Jay's madd overrated too many followers on his dick, i guess money talks. Neways Nas seems to keep it real for the most part Jay's just money hungry i mean does anyone see his involvement with the south as being kinda funny? Yeah sure Jay did a track with No-Limit way back when No-limit ruled the charts (for some reason) then when no-limit falls off no more guest appearences from jigga, and now lil wayne is hot in the south (can't stand em) and it seems to me like wayne and jay on each others dicks or somethin. neways jiggas a businessman and all dats clear, i mean we all see his dirty tactics but if dats whatcha gotta do ta get by then hey who am i to judge.

Just the keep it simple Da take over was a better diss, but Nas is the better artist.

Jay-Z he's got one of the illest voices in the game
his engineer (Guru) fixes his voice up like you wouldnt believe. In reality, he has a high ass gay sounding voice. Listen to his interviews and go see him live.

Yo I Seen Jay Live I Really Didnt Notice Anything Off With His Voice.

Nas, he is one the best rappers around iin this generation not that that is so hard these dayz but still he truly is gifted and really knows how to use his talent to the fullest.
Jay Z on the other hand can't rap can't freestyle and he can't even produce so as in the words of the song ether...FUCK JAY-Z

^could you explain this in detail? i'm somewhat experienced in recording, so i know how EQs, compressors, filters, etc. work. every mc would want their shit tweaked out to sound as good as possible, why wouldn't Hov too? i can hear differences in his voice on different records, but he does switch up the flow cause he's got several to come with. kinda like RZA/Rzarecta/Bob Digi but not as extreme as the Abbott.

Jay Z got skillz, which I can respect, tho I can't stand his lyrical content....but he does have skillz; and personally I don't even fuck with this cat at all....

Nas.....superior breed, beyond the better street credibility and rep, this cat is a true lyricist..and is capable of taking it anywhere with his words.., on top of that he destroyed J in the battle..


vote-NAS


peace
