Jay Z vs. Nas: Which Emcee Has The Better Post-“Ether” Discography?

Kendrick Lamar’s Colbert Performance MUST BE Acknowledged
As a Nas pseudo stan, I hate the fact that some other rapper is competing for the rap throne that’s in my mind. Though I will remain steadfast in my loyalties to the Queens Bridge King, Lamar will have to be the undisputed Crown Prince….
