The original version of I Am...that was recorded was a double album that was highly praised. It was never released though because it got bootlegged so badly, so Nas went back into the lab and made a bunch of brand new filler tracks which made the album wack

EDIT - A lot of the tracks that got cut are on Lost Tapes, actually. Doo Rags, Fetus, No Idea's Original and Blaze a 50 come to mind.
Ah ok, well that doesnt change the fact i think his body of work is weak and in terms of GOAT hes not even close to Rakim etc
If he was on a goat p4p list he'd be between 6-10 imo. sorry bud.
Heres a classic canuck track as way of a apology:

oh well, agree to disagree then. No hate.

Don't get me wrong though, I love Rakim. I said a few pages ago that the game was changed when Paid in Full dropped.

That said, Rakim hasn't been active in over a decade (has he released anything since he left Aftermath?) so it's tough to call him the GOAT. He's more legend status than active GOAT at least.

that said, I am a little dumbfounded that Kane and Kool G Rap only have 1 vote a piece. Kool G Rap is one of the most underrated emcees alive.

I wouldnt want him to release anything now lol, dude is in his 50's + hip hop is pretty much dead, theres some decent new stuff released every now and then but i have enough mixtapes and underground mixes and albums from the golden age that i dont even need to bother to check new stuff.

I agree about kane and kool g, but considering he has 0 votes and in general doesnt get much props whenever this kind of conversation arises is OC, jewelz and word life are classics + all the stuff he did with DITC...

the last track I remember was R.A.K.I.M back in the 2000's. He was still in his 40's and he was still fire on that track. Watcher 2 with Jigga and Dre too.

of course, Just forgot it Existed lol

I know Rakim came back for a period in the early 00's and signed with Aftermath and I was super excited. Reason he left is apparently Dre kept pushing him to drop gangata bars, and Rakim straight refused saying it wasn't his style..

If true, even more respect to a legend who walked away from that deal just to stay true to himself.

I'll drop some more knowledge on my man Nas. Like I mentioned, the original "I Am..." album was titled "I Am...The Autobiography" and there was no plans on Nastradamus. it was a double album that he scrapped at the last minute due to bootlegs. It would have been classic status. Here's the tracklist.

1. Fetus (Belly Button Window)
2. NY State Of Mind Pt. II
3. Life Is What You Make It
4. Small World
5. Hardest Thing To Do Is Stay Alive
6. Poppa Was a Playa
7. Nas Is Like
8. Blaze A 50
9. Favor For A Favor (Feat. Scarface)
10. We Will Survive
11. Some Of Us Have Angels
12. Project Windows (Feat. Ron Isley)
13. Day Dreaming, Stay Scheming
14. Sometimes I Wonder
15. Undying Love

disc 2

1. After Life (Intro)
2. Amongst Kings
3. Life We Chose
4. Drunk By Myself
5. Pray
6. God Love Us
7. Ghetto Prisoners
8. Last Words
9. Family (Feat. Mobb Deep)
10. Come Get Me
11. Find Your Wealth
12. U Gotta Love It
13. Wanna Play Rough
14. The Rise And Fall
15. My Worst Enemy

To those who remember, at the end of undying love, he died in a shootout with police. Here is an unreleased track that was supposed to open up disc 2.
