Nas Says Hip Hop Is Too Young To Name A "Greatest Of All Time" Do You Agree? If Not Who Is #1 On Your List? [Video + Poll]


Video After The Jump

Probably the greatest debate among hip hop heads is who the greatest mc of all time is. If you polled 100 people I would bet 90% of them could name a greatest rapper in their mind.

One rapper who would definitely get top 5 dead or alive consideration is Nas. He feels like rap hasn't been around long enough to definitively name one the greatest.

"Somebody asked me who was the greatest mc of all time. And I think it's too premature, it doesn't make any sense," Nas said. "Like when you ask most singers who do they like, who were they inspired by. They might not say Usher, they might not say Trey Songz, they might not say Justin Timberlake. They might say Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder because they had the opportunity to look at these guys' whole body of work. And even if I say [LL] Cool J was the greatest of all time, no doubt he's the greatest. But when you put that title on yourself, it's almost like burying yourself."

What Nas says makes sense in a way, but I think based on what we have seen throughout rap's history, it's possible to choose a rapper who is the greatest of all time. At least until now.

What do you guys think? Do you have a # 1 above all choice? If so, who is it?

Pull Up - SKZIY (Official Video)

Brooklyn, New York born hip-hop artist SKZIY refers to himself as the “Yelp! of the culture -- the guide to what’s cool.” Sonically, he’s trap music with a witty fusion of classic hip hop vibes that allow him to showcase his versatility and “rewind worthy” punchlines. It’s safe to say these attributes are largely a result of his musical influences, Fabolous, Cam’ron and Jay-Z -- three monumental rap figures who’ve influenced SKZIY’s own style and business acumen.After a rough adolescence in…See More
