    Ehhhh....can't say he's wrong.

    But Nas has a legit argument for G.O.A.T., f'real.

    I don't think people truly understand just how much time is encompassed in a G.O.A.T. argument....we're talking decades. Some people throw the G.O.A.T label out there when what they're REALLY implying is "in MY (their) lifetime/experience", which is more limited.

    NOBODY in hip-hop is more overrated than DJ Khalid.

    A lot of it has to do with Nas music and content not really being as easily digestible, or "cool" as some of his peers as well...even to me, a super duper fan, musically I wish he'd make more shyt for the 85'ers, lol...just cause I want my guy to shine. That's why I love KD, its quality but also easily digestible.

    But he is right, all the unbelievable ones get kinda slighted or completely ignored, for the most part

    He makes a good point.

    Greatness often gets downplayed to camouflage another's weakness.

    I think this went on earlier in his career but the more the years go by the more people realize and recognize he's great.

    A lot of listeners don't handle metaphor heavy lyrics well. You gotta be simple and direct for them understand you.

    I remember back in college playing Illmatic for people and they were all like, "Nas be using big words:ohhh:" They loved Pac though.

    most critiqued

    if Nas dropped that unmixed ass Jay-Z, Jay Elec mixtape he would have been crucified for his "beats being trash"

    An inconsistent discography and lack of hit records.

    Been pretty much a Gold or less artist since 2002.
