Default I want Nas to stop making subject matter songs

Nas is best when he's stream of conscious or trying to paint an picture without an alterior motive


He's particularly good when he's describing his childhood or up bringing.
But when he picks a subject or is trying to prove a point <<<<<<<<<<. People heard some intelligence on Illmatic and have been putting pressure on him (as he has himself) to be extra 'deep' since that album dropped. Now he's trapped and the irony is Illmatic is a full 'gangsta rap' album that's almost completely apolitical.

I've never seen much footage of him, but I did have a video documentary about him, Q-Tip, and someone else (deadset can't even remember who), and he was one of the most poorly spoken dudes you could imagine. Sounded absolutely dumb as shit.

I've never been able to get into anything he did after his first 2 albums.

^LOL. I can't stand Nas' interviews. Absolutely no capacity to convey information. He did drop out of middle school so it makes sense.

It's unfortunate because his legacy will suffer from a total and complete inability to communicate insight. Kinda makes it seem like everything good you did was accidental. Sometimes I think he's bullshitting.

i can agree that Nas is at his best when he's stream-of-consciousness and especially personal subject matters or just telling a story... Nas has one of the best vocabularies in hip-hop so i don't know what you're talking about though.

"Life is Good" was a great LP, lyrical as fuck and basically autobiographical

I have no complaints about Nas' lyrics. His storytelling and lyrical style are perfect imo.

I can agree he sounds like a 5 year old or like hes high as fuck when he talks but nevermind hes articulate as a rapper.

lol the nas hate on this forum is as strong as ever. i always want to know what rappers people want to compare nas with lyrically, when they make these criticisms.

and is it surprising to fans of rap, that some rappers are more eloquent on record as oppose to speaking?... you can cite every wu member as a prime example.

some people here really have an inferiority complex about liking rap smh.

You should post this on his Twitter. You could forever deviate Nas' lyrical style like how that Sam Ash employee did to Rza when he told him that he is not a real musician.

I think Nas is the best rapper of all time. I he just gets boring when he's trying to 'learn ya something' because it usually involves him slowing down. And his interviews are trash lol. I don't learn anything about anything listening to his interviews because like someone said he sounds like he really high.

Ironically he does have one of the best vocabularies of a major rapper, but when you ask him to explain something he's all 'yeah....it was just one of those things...know what I'm saying...shout out to big dave'. That's why sometimes I think he's doing it on purpose

When nas describes a scene, talks about his childhood, and spits loosely connected thoughts he's the best, but when his songs have a more concrete subject matter he's boring

Yeah his know-the-ledge sucks, that's why Illmatic is his only classic. I donno how the GOAT can continually make shit albums either.

I want Hennessy to stop making commercials that make zero sense and no relation to their product w/ Nas narrating.

LOL@StonerSloth dissing Nas albums hahahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah most of his albums suck but he's very good and I don't have a problem with his interviews. I didn't know he dropped outta middle school. I wonder how come he didn't get his GED? He must read a lot of books because he seems to have a lot of knowledge.
