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?

I could only fit 9 choices on the poll. Names like DMX, KRS 1 and Big Pun would have been added, if I had the room.

About The Metro Cartel: Meshing together ‘true identity’ and passion for music, five talented emcees out of the DMV, will prove to be a formula for success in the music industry. The lyrical group The Metro Cartel consists of five members, who go by the names of: Ivin the Terrorable, B.I.G. Fella, Duck Lo, Sir Charlz, & M.I.L. (Moments In Life). The only common denominator between the quin-rap group’s formation would be the H.B.C.U. they attended together and their hometown, Washington…See More
