Vocalist

The Resume

    (19 14, 1973- )
    Birth name is Nasir Jones
    Rapped with Main Source, Foxy Brown, Lauryn Hill, Sean Puffy Combs, Method Man and DMX
    Released 'Illmatic,' 'It Was Written,' 'I Am,' 'Nastradamus,' 'Stillmatic'
    Recorded 'Live At The BBQ,' 'One Love,' 'Half Time,' 'Street Dreams,' 'Nas Is Like,' 'Hate Me Now,' 'Nastradamus,' 'Got Ur Self A Gun' and 'One Mic'

Why he might be annoying:

    After years of insulting commercial artists and sell-outs, he is slowly, but surely, selling out himself (recording with Jennifer Lopez, touring with Usher, signing with Murder Inc.).
    He has tattoos on his right arm.
    Jay-Z may have put it best in his song 'Takeover,' when explaining Nas' inconsistency with albums by saying, 'Four albums in ten years nigga, I could divide, that's one every let's say two, two of them shits was due, one was - NAHHH, the other was Illmatic, that's a one hot album every ten year average, and that's so - LAAAAAAAME!'
    For years he had a noticeable chipped tooth, but never fixed it until late 2001.
    He smokes marijuana.
    He was charged for second degree assualt after an altercation at a nightclub, that ended when Nas allegedly threw a glass bottle at a man's head (December 10, 2003).

Why he might not be annoying:

    His first album, 'Illmatic,' opened many doors for rappers, as it focused on lyrical ability and simple beats, without the standard millions of dollars spent on production and guest spots.
    He is considered one of the top rappers of all-time.
    His most recent album, 'Stillmatic,' returned him to prominence and had his naysayers once again claiming him 'the king of hip-hop.'
    He took a page from the 'How Not To Incite Your Fans & Their Semi-Automatic Weapons' book by saying that his feud with Jay Z is strictly entertainment (I suppose Tupac and Biggie rolled a joint with that page before reading it).
