We all know both of these artists Nas and Rakim both superstars in the hiphop world. But lets go back to when Rakim was top of the world in hiphop in the early 90s. People were saying Rakim is the best ever in the early 90s and still now people say he is best. But in the early 90s everyone was talking about this person called him the next Rakim. The person who was labeled the next Rakim was Nas. Then though out the years to the present time they get compared to each other alot of the time. But why?
Over the years, Nas and Rakim have frequently been compared to each other, both for carving out their own respective niches and for their profound influence on the rap game. To me they are like the same with style and skill. But I dont same Nas copy Rakim. I would say Nas skill on the mic shows he is like Rakim. To me these two are greatest of alltime. If hiphop never had these it would not be where its to day. Rakim era with Eric B left its mark on hiphop what it is today. And we all know what Nas and his album illmatic done in hiphop. So they were both in Kanye West - Classic also with Krs one and DJ Premier. Hearing them on the same track do you think they are a like?
