Nasty Nas

The Real King of Rap – Nas is no Eminem. He’s better.
The worst part of the above article is that it references Illmatic as Nas’ “Gold Standard” record. It’s not that it isn’t- it most certainly is, it’s just that Illmatic is 8 years old now and Nas hasn’t sniffed the lofty air of that record in the intervening years. Kind of disappointing. Regardless, the article is interesting and posits some theories that have some merit- at least around my neck of the woods.
