    It’s 2020 and now it’s implied that Nas lost the beef with Jay

    That's foul (pun intended), lol. I am a Nas fan who admits that his fans tend to super overrate his catalog...but that is a horrible comparison. Nas is way more superior in the rap game than Carmelo Anthony is in the basketball game...it's so far from accurate that you can tell it was meant to shyt on Nas. Nas beat Jay-z...has probably as many great albums as Jay-z...has been around longer, etc... How is he to Jay-z what Melo is to Bron?

    What's up with people carelessly shytting on Nas? And why is it always some weird looking suburban white "hip hop" dude? Smh. I think Jay-z/Roc Nation is secretly behind this shyt, and I'm only partly kidding.

    I don't really see how this is disrespectful as much as it is confusing. Nas is being compared to modern stars of rap and everyone on that list debuted in the latter '00's or early '10's. Lil' Wayne and Nas are the only 90's rappers on the list.

    These crackers forever want to disrespect the goat ever sinc ePac died... but yo NaS legacy is so crazy so full of the greatest rhymes on the planet. That at this point it’s a damn joke, it’s a joke that anyone would ever disrespect nas a nikka with that many classic albums but hey.
    Ice cube ghost wrote the first new album amerikkkas most wanted death certifixate westside connection the predator and 2 more classic albums and these faggits were calling ice cube a coo. For making a contract for black America. In 2020 disrespect IS respect.

    Carmelo isn't even a Top 50 NBA player of all time...and if he is he just barely is. Nas is obviously a Top 10 rapper of all time, at least...Top 5 is more accurate.

    They could have just left Nas off of it, they left madd other rappers off of it in his age range that were active in 2019-2020. Jay-z, Fat Joe, Jay Electronica, Snoop, Kanye, etc...

    Because Carmelo isnt seen as a GOAT... and nowhere near LeBron (goat status)

    Nas, by all accounts is equal or better than Jay Z (who the CAC compared to LeBron)
