Greatest Rappers Ever - Voted For By You

And the winner, voted for by you… Nasir Jones – known to the 25m people to have bought his albums worldwide to date as simply Nas – broke new ground for rap in 1994 with ‘Illmatic’, a coming-of-age sprint through the sights and sorrows of his native Brooklyn. Last year’s ‘Life Is Good’, as its title suggests, saw him mellow without losing any of his lyrical fire. The master’s still got it.
