    On “Reach Out,” Nas rhymes, “And you become better than legends you thought were the greatest.” Again, the Nasty MC’s words ring true. At this juncture—21 years and 10 solo albums in—no other MC has ever rhymed at such a high level this deep into their career. Not Rakim. Not Kool G Rap. Not Slick Rick. Not Big Daddy Kane. Not LL Cool J. No One. —Carl Chery

    Thats because he doesn’t even have to try, this shit is FIRST nature to Nas, M.C.’ing. This dide is incredible. I know G Rap, Rakim and the rest of the older cats are like “WOW”!!

    How can an album receive a XL in one of the three categories but still get a perfect rating? it doesn’t even out.

    No MC is touching Nas. Yeah Eminem(The Great White Hope) Jay-z(Has not made a decent solo CD in almost decade , the same rings true for Em) might have sold 20 million more records but they are not even in his class. He has eclipsed Rakim Allah, G-Rap, Pac , KRS1,Biggie and Scarface(always left out of the conversation for some reason) as the greatest MC of all time
