    J. Cole made Nas proud again at the 2nd Annual VIBE Impact Awards. The North Carolina rapper's admiration for Nas took center stage in 2013, after his Born Sinner shout out to the Queensbridge rapper "Let Nas Down" born the remix offspring "Made Nas Proud" featuring the man himself. A VIBE cover with his idol soon followed.
    Cole put on a suit and took to the podium at VIBE's Impact Awards to roast his favorite rapper in one of the best speeches of the night. Cole reminisced about the first time he heard Mr. Jones' It Was Written and converted from a diehard Tupac fan to a Nas stan.
    "...Once I fell in love with the art form of rhyming it was clear to see what I was drawn to, and it was a few things. It was introspection, storytelling, emotion and lyricism," said Cole. "Those were the things that I could see that I was clearly falling in love with, just as a fan of somebody, that wanted to do this. And, during my early romance with hip-hop, there was one rapper who was and still is the poster child for all of those qualities that I just named and that's Nasir Jones, obviously. " Well said, Jermaine.
    Watch his full speech below.

Thats a real story.. And i feel cole you had to choose sides.. I was ridin wit nas oml.. QB..i got on nas in highschool... And guess what it wasnt a brotha who put me on him.. A Hawaiian dude in Wisconsin think about that.. Thats how i learned about nas.. From a Hawaiian dude while we were in school in wisconsin.. Nas music reached everywhere.... And we got cool after he beat me in a battle.. Went over his house and he was like yo you need to listen to this dude nas.. Started me off wit illmatic.. Shit opened up a new world for me. So much so i changed my style being in Wisconsin i rapped midwest style twister spittin fast was the shit seeing how chi town like a few hours from us..i Listen to nas those barz slowed my style down.. And got cold.. Never been to ny hope one day i could go to queenebridge.. Meet the God King Nasir... Hov my guy to.. But nas was like in the trenches wit me how we grew up Hov was what we inspired to be when we wasnt poor no more.

Where else do you see this kinda camaraderie?? Nas, Jermaine, Kendrick... the realist... It's no accident that three of the true-blues of hip-hop flock together. “I’m not saying I’m gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.” - Tupac Shakur Stay true to yourself... Work towards being the best version of you so you can go out into the world and inspire others to become the best version of themselves..

+VIBE Magazine If I was happy, "ATribeCalledQuest" was my vibe mostly Q-Tip, because it reminded me of what it's like to justhang around friends and just have fun freestyling or just the music itself giving you that vibe to brighten your day. If I was sad or mad, "2Pac" was my vibe to get me out of depression and anger. He was like that older brother that knew what to say because he had so much experience to give out and he was always real about it. If I was feeling hip-hop throughout my body or what my body thought was the natural form/ embodiment of hip-hop, I listened to Eric B. & Rakim, Nas, and KRS-ONE. And that made me think about what I perceived street life to be which wasn't guns, drugs and money, but to me it was graffiti, breakdancing, beatboxing, freestyle battles, DJ scratching battles, being a rebel and having fun. It made me feel free from all the things that was happening around me. It gave me a place to express myself artistically and build my own person. It made me feel like I wasn't alone.

I'd rate Pac greater than Nas, there's no way he's an average lyricist, he was a genius that was born in the wrong skin at the wrong time, so he let his thug out instead of his inner poet. He'd only be average if you have the best sample out there, he's one of the best, his work exceeds Nas'... I love Nas, but pac was a better song writer and at least an equal lyricist..I'd ssay he's better, and has a better message when he's being positive..

This is call showing mad respect and paying homage to the realist rapper/lyricist Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones/Tupac Amaru Shakur/Shawn Corey Carter top three rappers of all time. Nas was the best storyteller, 2pac was the inspirationalist, and Jay-z had the coldest flow...so it hard to rate them who is 1 or who is 3.... but that is the top three individual rappers/artists of all time and oh yeah you can't forget about Biggie Christoper Smalls,he had all those qualities .

+FabyBaby 36 Riding Dirty album by The UnderGround Kings is my shit! Up there with the likes of Paid In Full, Black Star's eponymous album, & ATCQ's Low End Theory. I have love for all coasts & all the distinct styles, flows, beats, & idiosyncracies. & Outkast will always be one of the greatest hip-hop bands that ever were. They're pioneers of hip-hop in the south, which makes me think of that source awards incident when they won best new rap group. It's crazy how far hip-hop has come. I agree with that Cyhi comment, cause that guy has got some crazy wordplay & metaphors, not to mention entendre. Check out "Capital STEEZ" if you haven't. "Charizma" as well. & one of the artists who have truly mastered the craft of lyricism "MF DOOM." Hip-Hop is beautiful, whether you regard it as a subculture or way of life, it means something special & unique to all of us.
