NAS BEST SONGS: TOP 85 TRACKS BY NAS

With over 20 years in the industry, Nas has already solidified his place in history as one of the greatest rappers to touch the mic, in any metric that you want to use. With such a career behind him, he could easily coast and put out bad music or no music for the rest of his days but he is actually still going strong with quality that rivals any other rapper out there today. For this list, I have chosen songs from each of his albums to create a list of the best of. I ended up with 85 but keep in mind that this is in order of release and not a countdown from top to bottom. This list will allow one to make a fantastic mix of the top Nas material ever.
