Rakim / NAS
 
ok this arguement has been around for a while has Nas overtaken in your opinion Rakim as the best MC. this discussion is only between Nas and Rakim the better of the two. Neither have wack albums. We know that w/o Rakim ther wouldnt be Nas (the rapper that is) but i am only saying to weigh their work as an MC.
Nas-
Illmatic
Nastradamus
I am
Stillmatic
God's Son
The Lost Tapes

Rakim-
Paid in Full
Let the Rythm Hit'em
Don't Sweat the Technique
The 18th Letter
The Master

You have in one hand Rakim most likely the best of the MC's that really revolutionized hip-hop
And Nas who modeled his idea of an MC after Rakim

The question is has the student in a way overtaken the master?

It's not a easy choice,and i feel Nas took the torch from Rakim even though Rakim fathered the style.

Ra is the goat 4 me. Nas is in my top 5.

yes nas easily..

rakim is a pioneer (and so is Nas, maybe even more so than Ra)

but nas passed rakim a long time ago.
nas wouldnt be the one to tell you that cause hes humble

but
Illmatic>paid In full
nas catalog is way better than Ra's and thats kinda not fair in a way cause Nas was in a newer era but he is the reason rap advanced to that newer era b/c of Illmatic

follow me?

Edgar Erebus 07-25-2006 03:16 AM

Yeah that was real tough, but Nas.

A controversial statement: Follow the Leader >>> Paid in Full

Longbongcilvaringz 07-25-2006 03:20 AM

Funk_Dock 07-25-2006 05:20 AM

as an mc rakim overtakes nas.....i really dont feel like this discussion again cause ive already gone through it 3 times. im just gonna leave it at that and vote

Seborth 07-25-2006 05:22 AM

Rakim maybe better than Nas as MC but..
Illmatic>Rakim albums
It Was Written>Rakim albums

Frank Drebin 07-25-2006 05:35 AM
