"I Don't Like Nas - What Songs Will Change My Mind?"


          

I don't hate Nasir Jones. I won't say I hate his music. It just never "grabbed" me.

I hear people say they were hooked from his verse on 'Live at the BBQ'...and I was just like "Meh".

But, I can be persuaded. What songs will change my mind?

And, what is it I'm not getting?

Plus it seemed like a genuine question, no matter how perplexing it is for someone on a hip-hop site to say they don't like Nas.

Thought the 5 posts was a dead give away.

And not at all surprising to believe someone doesn’t like Nas but it is surprising in 2021 the only song they’ve only heard was Live @ The BBQ and can’t take it upon themselves to select a related video on YouTube lol

You know rap enough to be on OkayPlayer. Your account has 5 posts.

And you are asking to be 'convinced' to like Nas?

You don't know Nas catalog by now? Word?


Clear troll post. Not sure why, but I refuse to believe it was a genuine question.

I don't think I ever got Nas getting 5 mics until I actually moved to NYC and seen where Nas fits into the history of NYC Hip-Hop.

Like his songs hit different once you catch all the references to places and people from NY. IDK. Just a thought.

So much of music is relating to the imagery the sounds and lyrics create. And more so if the music is visceral, if only because you know first hand the settings and the people the artists references.
