Nas is the lyrical poet of hip hop with his stories about urban life in New York. Ever since he came on the scene in 1994 he has put out music that is both engaging and thoughtful. In my opinion he is the best rapper ever in hip hop and he has proven it time after time with his phenomenal albums.
From his debut masterpiece album “Illmatic” Nas delivers a storytelling song in “One Love” where he talks to his friends and peers who are locked up in jail. Check it out above.
