CNN States That Nas Is The “Finest MC”
CNN is a Cable News Network and they explain how they believe Nas is the greatest emcee. Media networks have been throwing the question for 2013, “who is the greatest emcee?” CNN gave an answer to their audience.
In a recent news cast, CNN’s Eliott C. McLaughlin wrote that Nas is the “greatest lyricist of all time,” and she interviewed Nas about her choice.
“It’s wayyyyyy, way, way too early in our lives,” explained Nas. “It’s great to put a list together, but don’t take it too seriously because your list won’t matter 10 years from now or 15 years from now. It’ll be a different list.”
McLaughlin weighed in Nas’ subject matter, “I’ve been called everything. Gangsta rap. I’ve been called conscious rap. You know, everything. Whoever feels like calling it whatever they want to call it, that’s on them.”, as well as Nas’ success with his nine number one albums, which feature Jay-Z and seven albums that have gone platinum.
“Don’t blame me; blame our wonderful country, America,” explains Nas. “And you can’t even blame America. It’s life. Blame life. I talk about life, and I make universal music with an American style — and that’s what I do,” he said. “I know one thing: People put too many labels on music.”Photo credit: popblerd.com
