Let’s keep it real…lyrics are irrelevant in hip-hop today… but as we know, there are still artists out there that try to convey real messages in their music, a perfect example being Nasir Jones.

Appreciating his contribution to pop culture and hip-hop, CNN has named Nas “The Greatest Lyricist of All Time.”

To avoid any controversy…let’s begin with a disclaimer: Nas doesn’t endorse the following sentence. But he truly is the greatest lyricist of all time.

Acknowledge that those words were carefully chosen: “lyricist” over “rapper” or “hip-hop artist;” “greatest” instead of “most successful;” “all time” rather than “today.”

With “Life is Good,” Nas dropped his ninth No. 1 hip-hop album since 1994, seven of which have gone platinum! That places him second among rappers only to Jay-Z with 11.
