NAS TALKS ABOUT SOME OF HIP HOP'S BEST LYRICISTS : DO YOU AGREE?




When I said 'hip-hop is dead' a few years ago i felt we had gotten away from the great wordplay and storytelling, says Nas. "There's a place for the party shit and a place for the gangster shit. I focus on the guys that are always pushing themselves forward."



















1. "My Downfall"
Notorious B.I.G., 1997
The lyrics are about how he's facing the shadow of death,despite all of his success, and he's giving it to you in a way that makes the lyrics seem so real.

  










2. "If my Homies Call"
Tupac Shakur, 1991
He's just saying to his boys that he's going to be a friend no matter how big he gets.
