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.

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?
