Top Ten Best Nas Songsawesomenessdefined
The Top Ten
Nas goes hardcore and spits sick lyrics through the entire song, making it a performance to remember! His best work by far!
The greatest rap song in history! It is a true classic beyond rap and was way ahead of its prime!
Nas best song ever! And quite possibly the greatest hip hop song of all time!
N.Y. State of Mind is arguably Nas's best song. Nas's flow, his lyricism, and the beat make this song iconic and easily one of the best rap songs of all time. The Illmatic is seen as the greatest rap album ever and this is clearly the top song of that album. - rapaddict97V 35 Comments
One Mic is a Great Song but the World is Yours has really everything that a Great Song Dead!
-Lyrically can't it better
-one of the Best Beats ever made in the hip Hop history
My all time favorite Nas song- and since Nas is my favorite rapper I guess this is my favorite rap song overall. The lyrics are unmatched by any other rap and the beat is out of this world.. Which, by the way, is yours.
The beat and the lyrics are amazing, even the title just tells you about it, The world is yours what a song!
Hands down best nas songV 21 Comments
Best song ever the lyrical content in this song is so deep it is difficult to work out but that added to the greatness. It takes skill to rap slowly and get louder.
World class, shows the resurrection of Nas after Nastradamus
His lyrics in this are amazing and I love how his flow changes, 1 of my favourite songs ever
One Mic is a greatest nice song ever. The lyrics, the flow the creativity oh my man is one of the greatest hip-hoh songs ever.V 25 Comments
A dope beat, awesome and catchy chorus line, nice lyrics, this is what Nas is about! The best track from 'Illmatic'
This song should be above Hero and The world is yours. This is Nas' best hit and it is so much better than One Mic!
memory lane... nuff said
the greatness of this song is extreme. should be in first place if you ask me.
Nostalgic beat. Slick rhymes. 100% Nas. Should be #1!V 16 Comments
The beat in the background when he is rapping makes this my favourite Nas song and smart catchy lyrics, but I love all of his songs!
Godlike lyrical content, smooth beat that you can never get out of your head and flow that rides the beat like Benz. My personal favourite from the greatest album of all time "Illmatic".
"Deep like the shining, sparkle like a diamond, sneak a uzi on the island in my army jacket linin' "..
Best song of Nas and one of the best in the history of hip-hop.The lyrics, the beat, his flow...everything is godlike
NAS BEST RAPPER EVER!
This song is amazing, not better than "Nas is Like" but still great. Even though it's short it's a great songV 9 Comments
NAS IS GOAT
SOONER OR LATER WE"LL ALL SEE WHO THE PROPHET IS, HE SAID IN ONE OF THESE VERSES.
The best is amazing and the lyrical skill of Nas is also amazing! The greatest performance made by Nas, and the album I Am... is one of the best works ever made!
Can't go past this song
Nas is genius
Fluent and eloquent
Everything artists now wish they could be!

Love the background music, awesome lyrics, One of Nas's best tracks. Awesome! I never sleep, because sleep is the cousin of death!
Deep song and great lyrics.
As much as everyone likes the beat its actually a sample from Sting's song 'Shape of my heart' so. Still a great song though

He absolutely destroyed Jay-Z on this track, and I think this is arguably one of the greatest rap songs of all time. It is definitely my favorite dis song, that is without a doubt. Great work with this one, Nas! PS, I just wish I knew what "Ether" meant.
One of the most lyrical tracks in history, it totally pawned Jay-Z in the ultimate battle for New York
The song that started NAs' reign as the king of New York. It has some nice beats and amazing lyrics, plus he disses Jay-Z
He basically slaughtered Jay and paraded with his head on a stakeV 21 Comments
Az really mad the song so good but nas had the best line "that buck that bought a bottle coulda struck the lotto"
That's why we get high, 'cause you never know when you gonna go
It looks at how life can be bad but also how they have hope.
Great song the jazz in the background was amazing. Azs verse in that song is one of the best verses I've ever heard. Everything just goes great with this song.V 13 Comments
One of the greatest songs of all time. Lyrically the most amazing rap song. A real classic and thank god it is in the top ten
One of the greatest songs of all time, and better than any song on this list by a long shot! Lyrically it is a masterpiece of Nas and has a nice flow!
Greatest song of all time, not just rap but of all time! It has a nice beat and amazing lyrics, he talks about the worlds problems
Should definitely be number one hands down. Greatest rap song ever. Flow, Beat, Delivery, Hook, Chorus, and I don't even have to talk about how lyrical this is, because every Nas fan already knows.V 12 Comments

Great beat, plus it's in Illmatic so it just counts as the best.
Love this song, nice and chilledV 3 Comments
He raps about what a gun goes through. His lyrical messages are unbelievable and he is one of the best rappers of all time.
Probably one of the most lyrical songs crafted by Nas which birthed an equally great track by Tupac.
The most original concept and dope storytelling already listened like a 1000 times
Great storytelling and flow by nasty.V 1 Comment
Why do so many people not like this song? The beat is really good and the lyrics are great too.. Should be top 3 along with ny state of mind and one mic.
Best song with best lyrics better than all the above mentioned. Where he shares all the frustration with people about how people started hating him...
Damn good man!
He's so intense and ferocious on this song you can hear his passion through the mic you gotta love this song
This song is amazing, needs to be top 10. Sick beat and lyrics. Puff Daddy does good as wellV 2 Comments

Nas is the best half man half amazing - 9713524179
"Newness Anthem", just shows how superior Nas is over any other rapper!
I personal think this is the best. Because in this song he goes into complete gangsta mode.
That lo-fi beat, hell, plus the melody of the lyrics is like WHA. Song is #1, any person who likes music will like this song guaranteed. Made You Look is how you get friends who hate on NaS to like him.V 5 Comments
Yo gotta listen to this man, the flow is sick, instrumental is sick, lyrics is sick, seriously what more do you need man
One of the songs that makes you think Nas is the most lyrical rapper ever
look it up its on the lost tapes - lilruss72
Nobody compares nor competes with Nas. lyrical king. best flows and rhymes insaneV 3 Comments
Nas nailed it with this song, it is one of the best rap songs I have ever heard! It has a good beat, good lyrics, and meaning this combination is very rare.
Nas delivers a song with a good message while keeping his musical personality and without being corny or unoriginal.
Great message, great song. Even with all of the children, it's a great song
Dope track...serious knowledge in dose punch linesV 5 Comments
Should be top three. Hear this song then you will know.
Maybe I'm the only one but I think this song's better than 2pac's
Great song enough said
Such an amazing beat, he tears apart every bar.V 2 Comments
The beat is so good, so are the lyrics. Great hip hop song.
That one is amazing and it has some kind of pop appeal, I really love it
Good concept, good sampling, but he can't even stay on topic very well. It shows off the weak side of nas lyricism, rather than the strong side shown in I gave you power, the message, N.Y. State of mind, etc. One of his worst in my opinion
Great song, not his best, but still goodV 1 Comment
