    Default 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?

    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?

    nas lyrics are sub par, he forces multies and makes him sound nasal

    Rakim is a punch master and wordplay behemoth

    Rakim gets this one

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

    Yeah that was real tough, but Nas.
