Are you fuckin seriously comparing these 2?
Sent by a Carrier Pigeon called Geoff
2 of my favourites. Complete tie. Although they excel at different things.
to me eminem is far better then
nas in terms of rhyme schemes but nas still
Nas is lyrically better but entertainment wise/performace I have to edge it to Eminem. Also whether you agree with me or not..a big factor of Eminem being this successful is because hes a nice white MC in a naturally traditional black genre. Its like if a black guy was nice in hockey..not the best but above average..he would be celebrated way more because hes the only one in his nationality that does it and he does it well.. So not only does he get respect from his own people for doing the sport..he also gets respect from the other side as well..Which makes his buzz alot stronger. But def Nas has better lyrical ability
Eminem's shows are wild, his music interesting, his persona (before Recovery) - out of this world.
Nas? - Snore fest.
I vote Eminem.
Nas don't suck, his beat selection is not as good. but on the real tip I have to give Nas the edge cause he pioneered Hip Hop as we know it. If it wasn't for him half of these people wouldn't be rapping. there would be no Em, so we wouldn't have this discussion.
Em is a better entertainer, but
I have to give it to Nas

This is fuckin tuff...
I jus saw eminem in montreal on friday outdoor show he played everything it was fucking amazing all i gotta say.
going to see nas in new york in sept his set is illmatic. It's gunna be fukin dope but i aint gunna be super hammerd amped to listen to illmatic you kno..
Em gets 30 thousand ppl screaming shady will fucking kill you..
Nas is my man but eminem is the better mc
nas is lyrically better and way more creative with his rhymes. they both have amazing flows but i feel nas is more consistent on making good music. i give the edge to nas
The only real question is: why have these two greats STILL not collab'd? It's killing me.
Ya...Em's shows are fucking crazy.
Between 1998 and 2003 Eminem had an amazing flow, killer multi-syllabic rhyme schemes and a very dope rapping voice & delivery. Eminem was one of the only rappers who could sound mad nice over any beat. Eminem was like a non-street version of Big L, they rapped with very similar cadences, Eminem just had a more imprerssive rhyming vocabulary than Big L.
Nas was never as technical, rhythmic or aggressive as Eminem. But Nas was smoother, more thoughtful and rapped about more interesting topics and concepts. I think Nas was cleverer than Eminem, but Eminem was more technically gifted.
Both guys have 3 classic albums. For Nas: Illmatic, It Was Written, & Stillmatic, and for Eminem: Slim Shady LP, Marshall Mathers LP, & Eminem Show
Both guys have declined alot. Eminem's improved since his drug addiction, and Recovery was dope, but Eminem's so much worse than he was 9 or 10 years ago, whereas Nas sounds like a slightly downgraded version of his former self. However in their primes based on rapping technique, vocals and rhyming capability Eminem was better.
These are the results of a thousand electric volts
A neck with bolts, "Nurse we're losin him, check the pulse!"
A kid who refused to respect adults
Wore spectacles with taped frames and a freckled nose
A corny lookin white boy, scrawny and always ornery
Cause I was always sick of brawny bullies pickin on me
And I might snap, one day just like that
I decided to strike back and flatten every tire on the bike rack
(Whosssssh) My first day in junior high, this kid said,
"It's you and I, three o'clock sharp this afternoon you die"
I looked at my watch it was one twenty
"I already gave you my lunch money what more do you want from me?!?"
He said, "Don't try to run from me, you'll just make it worse..."
My palms were sweaty, and I started to shake at first
Something told me, "Try to fake a stomach ache it works"
I screamed, "Owww! My appendix feels like they could burst!
Teacher, teacher, quick I need a naked nurse!"
[N] "What's the matter?"
[E] "I don't know, my leg, it hurts!"
[N] "Leg?!? I thought you said it was your tummy?!?"
[E] "Oh, I mean it is, but I also got a bum knee!"
[N] "Mr. Mathers, the fun and games are over
And just for that stunt, you're gonna get some extra homework ."
[E] "But don't you wanna give me after school detention?"
[N] "Nah, that bully wants to beat your ass and I'ma let him
when nas writes a sick rhyme scheme
like this let me know.
Em is top 10 but Nas is top 5, maybe 3.
people who say em is better don't give a shit about content
em has better schemes but lets face it nas is on another level atm
These are my #1 and #2....
but for me it is Em then Nas
Eminem in his prime (1999-2003) kills nas easily
but Nas wins this one. Nas has been making ill music from 1994 to 2010.
Sure hes had some slumps, but he's always been able to come back hard as fuck. His rap skills arent as good as 94-96, but Hes still as creative as ever and still knows how to make top notch hip hop.
Eminem is still struggling to be the Eminem he used to be... and also trying to be lil wayne at the same time.
to put it simply, Nas just has more good music.
^^nice explanation and word.
yeah, i didn't see THAT coming.
