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.

Why You Should Follow Your Dreams, Not A Man Who Doesn’t Support Them

Coming from a generation built on fairytales and false expectations, it’s not surprising that many of the women of my generation can, at times, be slightly misguided when it comes to life and its timeline. Too many of us have built up this usually false illusion that life works out in a simple progression: school, […]
