Is Nas still a top 5 rapper right now?

Rap ain't like basketball where even the greats fall off due to old age.

With all the talk about Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, etc., is Nas at the age of 43 still a top 5 rapper still breathing? If not, who is better?
do you understand what im getting at?? WHAT WHITE PPL THINK, AND WHAT THEY DEFINE THINGS AS IS NOT THE STANDARD YOU SHOULD BE GOING BY. That is of course, if you are not mentally defeated by the complex of white supremacy, where everything whites do is the "right" way, where having straight hair and lightskin is "beautiful" but dark skin and nappy hair is "ugly"
You're doing it wrong. You take one and really fuck them up; make an example to the other kids. Like grab the small bitch and gouge her eyes out with your thumbs. Then curb stomp her.

    For the record, I'm not talking about Illmatic Nas or Ether Nas.

    I'm talking about Nas in 2017.

    Ppl were going overboard talking about how good rick Ross discography is.....everytime him and nas are on a track together....nas makes him look like amateur hour so I'd say if ppl overrate ross as one of the best right now..hes still not even close to nas

That's what's wrong with everybody now, they make being a gangsta or thug as the benchmark of being real. U know what's real, a nigga working a 9 to 5, busting his ass everyday without having to break a law."

    For me ... Yes. He's No. 2 on my list

    Is this a question for people who think Drake and Future are good rappers?

    The question not top 5 artists to drop an album this year. If Floyd Mayweather doesn't fight this year does that mean he's not top 5 right now?

    The question is "right now" is he top 5, how the fuck am I supposed to know that?

    Based on the 6 songs from last year, the Ross verse. I'd say his bar game is healthy.

    Even if you go by sales, LIG numbers was higher than a lot of radio pop acts. He won't put up Drake, Cole or Kendrick numbers like Jay Z could but I bet he will do Big Sean numbers.

    The question is "right now" is he top 5, how the fuck am I supposed to know that?

    Best now implies every thing you did in the beginning up to this point. So if everything Nas did up to now is better that what rappers are doing now, and he still a recording artist, and his last album was dope, I would say yes.

    I've never in my years as a NaS fan heard a wack or miserable line, bar or verse. Ever.


    Some of his subject matter/lyrical content might be questionable or incorrect depending on what he raps about. But his flow and lyricism still impeccable 20 years plus. His ability to tell stories in his rhymes is still top notch. Still killing guest features...


    And yes. He's Top 5 to me in 2017. DOA.
