I think that Tupac Shakur was and still is the greatest rapper in history. He will always be remembered by his fans.

2pac's a great, no doubt, but his time is over, it's time to move onto Nas time, it's time that everybody woke up and see what's infront of them and that's the greatest mc that ever touched the mic, Nas. Nas changed the game in 94' and he's been the best ever since, Jay's more marketable and one of my favourites but, nas flow and lyrics are unrivaled in rap

this is about 2pac not nas or j.cause pac has been 1 for 10 years.nas can neva beat the man.get ova it.nas didn't change nothing.nas was scared of pac just to tell the truth.pac had realized that it wasn't getting him no where.so he said he was sorry to nas.they became friends.nas is outragious in rapping.nothing compared to pac.

he said he was sorry to nas because he couldn't match him lyrically - they showed it in 96', pac and nas both made songs wit tha same beat - "all eyes of me" and "street dreams", nas killed pac on that shit

ATTENTION!! Cam just killed jay-z by putting all the song lyrics jay-z stole. We knew about the biggie lines. But he stole from snoop, slick rick, and say it ain't so. Nas himself. WOW!!!!!
It's gettin ugly Nas is right Hip Hop is dead. Hip Hop Died in March of 1997 that was the end of the Biggie & 2 Pac era and gangsta rap. Gangsta rap will come back because I said so. Real cat's like me is sick and tired of the braggin rappers talking about what clothes they wear and how much money hey got what car they drive and the bling. I miss cats like Spice 1 for example. Back when 2pac & Biggie was alive people wrote original lyrics cause they knew they had to step up their game. Now after their untimely deaths for example people like Jay - Z copied all of Norious B.I.G.'s rhymes and little kids and teenagers and sadly adults think it's all original when youre listening to Biggie Smalls lyrics out of the mouth of Jay -Z. Reasonable doubt is Jay-Z's best CD cause it was the most original CD he ever wrote. Basicly after the Hard Knock Life album thats when the copying started and Jay Z is not the only one. The best era in hip hop was 1988 until March of 1997. Now back to Nas, Nas is one of the best emcees ever, Maybe in the top 3-10. Nas once again will drop another classic so get ready. American record companies are so stupid because they think the only rappers come from New York, California, Little St. Louis, Little Atlanta, Texas & Florida. That's why hip hop is dead there is no variety no more. I want to hear the Old west Coast Gangsta Rap emerge again and the late 80's & 1990's New York Hip sound. I dont care if Scarface don't want to be King of the south because I'm making him king of the south because he is the true KING of the south no disrepect to T.I. because T.I. has tight flows but I aint scared of speaking my mind from email or face to face. Record companies need to come to Indianapolis, Indiana AKA NAP TOWN and check out our Emcee's because we have a diffrent and unique and orginal sound and there are so many great under ground rappers from the NAP who are independently dropping albums that are classics. People for years overlooked us, rappers came and made money off of us but didnt give us no advice or try to put us on like they do the same ol New York, California, Texas, Atlanta, Florida & St Louis. In the near future NAP TOWN is going to take the rap game by force so you cant hold us down any longer haters. Indianapolis, Indiana is not cornfields it's the 9th Largest city in the US with skyscapers and we have many hoods from the North, South, West and back to the East side where I stay. Naptown wrote the book on street life.
Indianapolis - the home of:
Mike Epps - Comedian/Actor.
Vivica Fox - Actress.
David Letterman - Late night talk show host.
Babyface - R&B singer.
