Nas is better. Illmatic is the greatest album of all time, Stillmatic is the greatest album of the decade(or at least very close), and N.Y. State of Mind is the greatest rap song of all time(or again at least very close kinda off the type of my head)

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.
I love the way u think that's all I been trying to tell people, It Was WRITTEN NASTRADAMUS, STREET'S DISCIPLE , GOD'S SON STILLMATIC CAZ HE STILL AT IT N ILLMATIC WHILE REACHIN OUT TO DISTANT RELATIVES. Nas always been more poetic, lyrical than biggie n pac to me. Nas on illmatic only 17 n 18 recording with the advanced vocab, meaning, wordplay, knowledge n wisdom n lyrics. This dude was so ahead of his time where ages 30 n up didnt even have a type of mind frame like him at 17 n 18. Pac was deep n knew alot but his rhyming n lyrics were average, he just knew how to express it where u really felt his pain n struggles where u can understand him n relate where nas can spit shit so far over ur head where an average dude cant understand or relate to what he is saying n may have to listen to the track a few times in a row to understand what he speaking on or schooling on.Nas can mix STREETS, POLITICS, ECONOMICS, REVOLUTION,BIBLICAL, DEEP SCIENCE N SPIRITUAL SHIT together all in one verse. Pac to me aint even top 10 lyrically. Nas,Common, Talib, Mos Def, Black Thought,Andre 3k, Biggie, Scarface,Big Pun, Big L, AZ, JADAKISS n more are mo lyrical than pac was. Why u think 95 source interview with bigie, he even said I definitely didnt think I was go win best lyricist with nas on it.NAS THE GOAT PERIOD.....

nas shits on jayz...ether fukd him up everyone knows that even jaz own fans....except for jayz himself...hahahaha he came out recently and said takeover was better then ether hahaha keep living in denial u lil camel faced pu$$y...the fact that he brings it up to this day after like 9 years shows ether left a permanent scar on can hear it in his voice avery time he speaks of it...and the fact that he tries to make himself believe takeover was better shows he knows deep inside he lost...everyone knows that its a fact..
jayz may have more money but that doesent mean hes a better lyracist...he just bows down to the mainstream whilst nas after 10-15 years time when jayz moves on nd nas moves on everyone would say nas was better...jayz will be forgotten because of how arrogant that movafukerr is....real hiphop will forget him infact hes already forgotten...he will never leave behind a legacy it was/is and always will be all about nasty nas...
