Best Songs from Nas' Illmatic
The Top Ten
Nas is by far better than eminem that's a fact lyrically and storytelling wise
N.Y State of Mind is the best Nas song, and it's in the top 5 rap songs of all time. Such a good beat, and the lyrics are absolutely insane.
I can name a lot of songs that are better than this: EVERY EMINEM SONG! Don't deny it. You know it's true.
Best. The goat of nas
This is such a good song. I love the beat, and the lyrics. One of the best beats I've ever heard, and one of the best rap songs I've ever heard.
The production on this track is the best I've ever heard. Best track on the album easily
Who's world is it?
Agruably one of the best songs in hip hop history. It is just straight banger.
Perhaps not number 3, but still a great song. Nas and AZ both killed their verses over this Jazz beat.
This is just a personal highlight, but honestly I love all the raps off illmatic, this wins my vote for brilliant sample, great lyrics and production.
In my opinion, this is exactly where it should be number 4. He's says so much in a little amount of time. Nice song Nas!
Did you know that this sampled human nature by Michael Jackson?
This should be above life's a bitch - JCchrom3
This has always been my favorite song from illmatic but I know it's. It the best. This should be #4 - JCchrom3
In my opinion, this is the third best song off Illmatic, after N.Y State of Mind and The World is Yours. Really nice beat and 2 great verses.
Beautiful track, well done Nas! Great meaning, nice piano. It's exactly where it should be on this list.
Different than the others but amazing
This is quite low, but still really good.
This beat is pure heat. The best song for me.
This should be at number 5. Great track, especially for his first song. This is really good, Nas.
I'd have it at number 9. Illmatic is one of the only albums that contain songs that are so low but are still really good.
Well, there's no rapping in this, so it makes sense that it's down the bottom. It's still a cool into though.
