Incomparable, Irrefutable, and Indispensable: Nas on Complex' 10 Best Rappers of the 2000's

The decade of  2000-2009 saw major changes and trends in hip hop and rap music. Geographically, the major forces of hip hop music had begun to shift from New York and Los Angeles to the gritty sounds of the south. In an industry climate where many of hip hop's most notable artists saw a decline in sales and popularity, Nas' unmatched skills and creativity solidified his spot as one of the Best Rappers of the 2000's.



As Complex writer, Rob Kenner states, "22 years after his debut on Main Source's Live at the BBQ, Nas remains one of the most compelling and divisive artists in hip-hop." Nas, a true story teller and lyrical genius, reigned as one Hip Hop's Kings throughout the 2000's dropping classic albums and one mixtape, including Stillmatic (2001), The Lost Tapes (2002), God's Son (2002), Street's Disciple (2004), Hip Hop Is Dead (2006), and Untitled (2008).

    Congrats on latest honor. Looking forward to you continuing to inspire and provoke thought in the minds of other young soldiers like me. I listened to you during my darkest days, through high school, college and now at work and home with my sons. Your music helped complete Engineering Projects that protect US, Israel, Europe and other allies. Take pride in that myDude!

    Congrats Again!
