When Bossip asked Nasir Jones how he feels about the state of hip-hop in 2014, he responded by saying, "It’s going in a great direction." The Queens MC, who's most notable for creating the classic Illmatic album also named a few of the rappers helping steer his beloved genre.

"Mac Miller is my man," mentioned Nas. "Drizzy, Kendrick, J. Cole. It's a couple good fellas out there that I'm feeling."
