    The hook was just as catchy as anything popping in them days (Big Poppa, CREAM, How High Gin & Juice etc)

    Im going to chalk that up to needing a dictionary to keep up with the verses

    Timeless Song

    Nas wasn't as easily marketable to the pop-loving masses like Biggie or Snoop.

    If you knew how cap illmatic's impact was, you'd understand. Nas wasn't a big deal in 94'.
    Album was average. Got 5 mics by some asian chic, in a bias magazine.
    But in real life, meant nothing
