Nas is Better than Jay - Z by far but they have never had the crown because BIGGIE AND PAC WAS buried with the crowns.

Regional Kings:

King of New York - The Notorious BIG

King of Hip Hop & the West Coast - 2 Pac

King of the South - Scarface

Kings of the Midwest - Twista & Bone Thugs N Harmony.

NAP TOWN FO LIFE! class dismissed!

Not even Big could come back at ether if it was directed at him. Jay got NOTHING on Nas. Nas is G.O.A.T. Pac and Big never had the crown so they could not have been buried wit them. Nobody said they were better than Nas till they died. If Nas and Jay both got killed over their beef wit each other, you think Big and Pac would still wear those crowns? Hell no! Look at Nas' discography. Seriously, there's only one or two albums that are worse than anything Big did (I am, Nastradamus), and that was when Nas was going thru his stupid esco/mafia phase. Every other Nas album kills anything Big ever did.

Nas shit on Jay on "Black Republicans". Jay new album is weak, beats and lyrics. Nas is the best mc and lyricist of all time. Jay was good when he stole Big's rhymes, but ain't shit when he writes for himself like on his new album.

No disrespect to Pac, but the analogy is like the comparison between a movie and a book. Pac is like a movie in that he actually "shows" the visions through his words, where Nas words are so ill they make you imagine the images, like a book. The book is always better than the movie.

Plus, the way Pac "painted" pictures in yo head was his main tool, and he did it on every song he made. Nas is way more versatile than that, changing up styles and subject matter to fit the beat and/or in response to whatever is happening in hip hop at the time.

I do love Pac, but to put him as the best RAPPERS of all time is to bypass and not recognize true greats like Raekwon, both Mos and Talib, Common, and a whole bunch of others who are lyrically superior and more versatile than Pac.

One last thing, when you look at Pac's discography, how can you even say that it compares to Nas'? All Eyes On Me, tight, but everything else below EVERYTHING Nas did, including Nastradamus and I Am. Keep it real.
