IMO= KOOL G RAP > NAS This is one reason I ranked Kool G Rap as a better rapper than Nas. BTW be prepared to BUMP DIS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zp5EOREHcuY

I thought you meant comparing the best songs of each of their albums (Reasonable Doubt's best vs. Illmatic's best, It Was Written's best vs. Vol. 1's best), and if that were the case, the score would be more even.
Great choices all of them. I was actually a big Jay fan up until Ether, then I switched to Nas.

Black Thought is probably the most under-appreciated, under-rated, rapper of all time. even here I guess.
Him and the Roots is one of the g.o.a.t.

At least they got the Top 1 right.

Anybody hear Hov's verse on Drake's Light Up? The subliminal wit of some of those bars is insane...

Yessir. Love it.

I wanted to vote Rakim. He was outstanding on his prime time but i was very disappointed by his laste album. SO i switch ti Nas who can still release insane song after Illmatic/Stillmatic/God Son/ Street Disciples....

Also, in addition to his solo catalog, Hov's guest features are the most insane. See: Jeezy's Go Crazy Remix Kanye's Diamonds Remix Rick Ross's Hustlin' Remix and Maybach Music Coldplay's Lost Remix Cam'ron's Welcome to New York City Biggie's I Love the Dough (to name a few)

Let me clear some things up in here: First, if you weren't alive/young/doing drugs/hustlin'/slangin' & bangin' when the purple tape dropped, your vote doesn't count. Second, if you have the google "the purple tape" or ask what that is, this means YOU.
