    to be honest, Nas is the best poetic rapper of all time, he always on a message for human struggle n excetral, he dominated African society for music rap n till this day, Africans like to play Nas n jarule period.

      Like your comment! Funny thing is, this back posture kind of suits this low-key attitude, the humbleness. It doesn't mean that he bows down to a superior, he simply appears used to crafting his magic, his art (do you get the analogy? Sorry for the bad description, but I really feel like he is the engineer, the artist who works in such a way...)

      I mean Nas takes influence from him and KRS. But the thing Nas has on both of them is marketing and a story to tell. Nas crushes any mainstream or underground "legend". Just like Wu Tang, Nas still remains a prominent figure in hip hop culture.

    "Rapper Nas." If you're going to essentially generalize him you should at least call him a MC. But even then it'd be an insult considering he's an artist, a writer, an actor and much more.

    • KnownEpidemic
      KnownEpidemic Year ago

      He's acted in around 10 movies. No matter how small his performances were, he's still an actor and clearly the directors seen his talent if they allowed him to be in the movie.ย 

      I get what you're saying though man. I'm by no means saying he's on the level of someone like Denzel or Al Pacino.

    • Shooter McGavin
      Shooter McGavin Year ago

      @knownepidemic Even tho he's in a movie, calling him an actor is kind of stretching it. That's like calling the 1985 Chicago Bears rappers, just cuz they rapped in the super bowl shuffle. I really enjoyed Belly, even with its mediocre acting (Nas being the worse). But you are right Nas is great and he is many things, I still wouldn't call him an actor tho.

    • herman diaz
