Well, I've got nothing to really explain, Choke2Death handled it.
Anyways, a lot of things go on the "radios" here, but I sincerely doubt Nas has ever been one a channel here.
I've known about him since forever
(ie since I got interested in rap). I'm just not that big into him, is all. Is Eminem a better rapper, or did I vote just because I like him more? I think that he is a better rapper.
That's a lie.
I just know that he is a fantastic rapper and that I've never been like "woah, this shit is good" when listening to Nas, which is why I voted for Em.
As for the references: I'd say that a good song should still be understandable to anyone, even if it is filled with heavy and obscure references.
