kin said almost all but i still hav a litle 2 add.Nas is d one i.e the definition of rap,pac may hav been listened 2 by almost everybody dat does not make him d best,when nasty nas raps at a point it does'nt sound like music any more,it escalades to a revelation as though his a rap prophet droping wat he has recieved from Allah.Pac cannot b compared 2 nas bcos nas is the combination of Pac,big,nd Rakim.It goes like dis,Nas,Rakim,and the rest.

Alot of ya'll just sayin' 2pac better because he died, but I truly believe that it's 2pac. And respect to those who say Nas is better and not following. Because maybe it's just me, but Eazy-E ain't the best West Coast rapper

easy is prolly the worst west coast rapper

Pac is a legend... Nas is one step above him.

i don't like how everybody follows the trend.

a hell a lot of people have only ever heard 4 pac songs. Changes, broken wings, runnin' and ghetto gospel. people that aren't hip hop fans, and they automatically say pac's the best. THAT'S REAL TALK.

illmatic, it was written, stillmatic and lost tapes are not rivaled by any pac album. although all eyes on me is one of ma favurites.

Everything you said is completetly true. Half these people say 2pacis the best rapper, but to me he ain't. He better than Nas, but he ain't the best ever. Just like after Aaliyah died she won all them awards and she shouldn't have won all that. 2pac and Biggie ain't the best rappers, but they both are execellent lyricists. And Jam Master J ain't the best DJ because he died

No disrespect to Biggie, but how you gonna put biggie before Pac. Biggie only had a couple good hits.

to answer the original question. Yes

Nas dies in 96/7 he's crowned the greatest, easy.

everyones saying if nas comes out with another couple of albums he could have the title!! thats bullshit and unfair , tupac died ten years ago!!, he was only 25 still a kid in some respects

and he had not reaches his prime!!, nas himself said that also, he said "what i'm talking about now in my music tupac was saying ten years ago"

remember tupac was only in the rap game for 5 years, nas was and still is in the rap game for the last 15 years!

yeah thats 1 of the 36 reasons nas is the best.

thing is was nas not at the top of his game from his first 2 albums??? when he was like 20/22?

so it's highly possible pac had already peaked

nas burst onto the scene on top of his game..and was recognised instantly as one of the greats, it took pac bout 5 years and a death before he was really regarded as a giant in the game. his albums from 91 upwards were good but nas's first two albums are unrivaled.

Yes, Nas was technically/lyrically a better rapper than pac in 90's and now in the 00's there is only a handfull of rappers anywhere near him, and a few of them are from staten island.

When comparing those two rappers , you have to divide their skills .
1) Nas's lyrics are as tight as Pac's but Pac's lyrics are more raw than Nas's.When you listen to Nas lyrics , you feel that the man took his time to put it down to the sheet it's the same for Pac's lyrics but with a more aspect of reality, you feel that Pac knew what he was talkin 'bout.
2) Pac's charisma is just overated , you just can't compare Nas to Pac when it comes to charisma, at his time when Pac talks, you listen. Pac was and is still the bomb.
You could find someone who writes like Pac but it's just that no one's better than Pac but you'll never find someone who writes or sounds like Nas.Period.
Like Nas used to say : "who's the best MCs?: Pac , Nas and B.I.G , aint no best "

Yo, it's goes like this, Pac is the greatest rapper without a doubt. In saying that, it all depends on what your looking for, don't get me wrong Nas is my dawg and he is the greatest rapper alive period but if you have studied and listened to rap, Pac is number one!! If it wasn't for Pac bringing rap to a global audience do you think someone like Jay-Z or Puffy would be were there are today......... not a hope!! Lyrically Nas can't be touched and I think if Nas battled BIG or Pac nowadays he'd take both!!

well to be honest i think jay-z is the greatest...his flow, delivery, charisma and lyrical ability rank him higher than any other mc alive or dead...when has jay flopped to be honest kingdom come wasnt as gud as wat people expected becoz people expected a ceo/mc to rap abou life as a drug dealer and his struggle on de streets..but jay is the realest mc b'coz he talks abou wat he goes trugh

It's a tough one to call, is Jay better Nas? I think both have good qualities, Nas lyrically and Jay has the flow! When they battled one on one, Nas took the crown (Ether stands alone)!! Jay's new album was very disappointing especially when he had people like Dre, Kanye and Swizz on production!!! I think Hip Hop is Dead was album of the year last year without a doubt!!!!
