Deja Vu all over again, well not really this time there is no beef, but that does not mean we can't still compare two of the best rappers of our generation. This will become a very popular post because both these guys have very loyal fans. Let me put it out there early, I'm a straight Jay-z fan all the way, I use to be a Nas fan but I switched to Jay around 2001. Even though Nas won the battle I think Jay won the war in the long run if you compare their success. Don't get me wrong Nas is a far deeper rapper than Jay, but Jay's swag and confidence is what people are drawn to. You know the same one that Lil Wayne is copying but that's another subject. Jay Z has far better punch lines than Nas does, come to think of it Nas does not have that much punch lines at all, anyway that's where I stand with both these guys. I just heard Nas's album “Hip Hop Is Dead” and I liked it allot more than Jay-Z's album “Kingdom Come”, truthfully I think Jay's album sucks and that's coming from a fan. It's his worst album to date and not good for a return album. Even though he sold 640,000 copies his first week, his sales dropped 80 percent the second week to 150,000 copies, plus there a rumors circling that Def Jam bought 250,000 copies in the first week. Nas definitely has a ill album as much as I don't want to admit it, I liked almost every track on it while I only liked 4 tracks from Jay's. So as far as their current album goes I think Nas won that battle but as far as the rest of their career goes I think Jay got it. That's is where I stand.
Who do you think won the Nas vs Jay Battle?
Which album is better “Kingdom Come” or “Hip Hop is Dead“?
Who do you think is the better rapper?
Give me you're feedback, be one of the first to share you're thoughts.
You know the deal keep it funky.
P.S. Here is hot track form Nas feat Jay-Z called “Black Republican” (This is history in the making)
