    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.

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.

+Cesar Escamilla word man, I'll check him out. I truly do think I'm a hip-hop head, but there will always be very impactful artists you either don't know about, or just haven't had a chance to hear a lot. Because I truly take this hip-hop shit seriously and with a lot of passion. It has a huge impact on my life, but there's just sooooo many artists that were/are great, specifically from the 90's era, and since from 1990-1999 I was 3-13 years old I wasn't able to truly digest hip-hop the way I did and do from 2000-2015. There's just always going to be an artist I should no more about. And being from ATL I will admit that southern artists were in HEAVY rotation. Artists that others don't know as well ike 8ball and MJG, UGK, Scarface, Pastor Troy, and hell right now artists like Cyhi Da Prynce are overlooked heavy but I have their shit bumpin hard in the system Outkast is a group that many have taken the time to listen to because NOBODY can deny their greatness, but Goodie Mobb is in the shadows. I just love Hip-hop and can't get enough of it. Sry about the rambling guys

alright well that's just pure ignorance haha come one, just because you're an obsessive fan of something doesn't mean you're acting gay...Cole is where he[s at because of preparation, passion, and work ethic. And being the best requires all three of those things, and abnormal behavior is also a strong characteristic of success because you wont get by being the best at something if you do what everyone else does. When he hung up those Nas lyrics on the wall, he was visualizing, when he fell asleep listening to his music that was just pure passion and love for the music. Not one thing that he said or did was gay....you're just probably pretty young and are quick to judge people. Maybe you'll understand when you've lived a little bit longer and learn what it means to  truly live what you love, and not just say it...I'm not trying to be hostile, I'm just tryng to make u understand because I believe Cole is a genius and the BEST at what he does

+Narhang Ingnam Nas signed to Def Jam, not Jay Z, he explains this. Jay Z being the President at the time was just a face and PR/publicity stunt to help past and present business ventures and prospects. Like JayZ being an owner of the Brooklyn Nets... This is just a front to get PR and profit from blacks. There are many white-owed corporations who hire blacks as the face (without saying it).

Anthony Hemphill I agree. Nas has SUPREME lyrical and writing ability compared to Pac. Pac had raw passion and grit. The emotional sound of his voice, the intensity of his delivery, his background, his swag, his subject matter made Pac undeniable and unable to be ignored. He showed a true concern for whatever he spoke about, whether it was police, black women, beef with niggaz, whatever. Nas had the ability to sketch a vision into a powerful poetry. Excellent word play, and could hang with ANY lyricist. He is gifted with unique essence to paint vivid paintings lyrically. Im just breaking down the difference between the two of them. Nas had the streets, Pac had the the world. You see the more complex a rapper, the harder it will be to reach the ears of the people. The more basic the rapper, the more ears can overstand what that person is kicking. Nas spoke to hip hop heads, Pac spoke to everyone.

curt love that's all fine and dandy, when you strip this artform down to its bones and judge the artists within it on the very basic level of it, Nas is far more advanced than pac ever was.

therese fassie Tupac was iconic, Nas is a legend. Tupac knew how to tap into your emotions and get you fired up. He was able to change your view or get you going to the point where if you were unconscious about anything, he could wake your ass up and make you conscious to it. His raw emotions and instrumentals touched people on a universal level. Nas had the streets and the hood, but Pac had the several countries. He even had jail niggaz, young and old. His style of dress, his attitude, his passion, his swag, all of it was more outstanding than any other rapper ever. He was a universally recognized artist that was a more complete package

James Ruffin Nas is a lyricist slash story teller. Pac was a revolutionary game changer. Two totally different cats

I feel the same way!  I tried to tell my mom back then, so what they are cursing you are just looking for the bad when there is so much good in these jewels they drop.  Rap raised a lot of kids, whether they took the gangsta route, or they they listened to those stories and vowed not to repeat the same mistakes.  Salute to HIP HOP! I fucking love this culture

Im from alabama but im stationed in Georgia im about to get out in july and move to Atlanta. But I was gonna say u soinded like u were from Brooklyn. That's the difference between southern rappers and rappers like ya'll up north cats. Ya'll bleed real hip hop. I could tell u were about ur business on how u came at me last time. When I mentioned nas and jayz. A nigga down here or a female don't know anything about the art of hip hop. And I apologize because I think we are the blame for it being the way it is right now.

Man...I just sat and watched this in complete silence. I'm 28 going on 29 years old so me ans Cole are probably around the same age. I like Cole never had no farther figure growing up but like him, i found insight in Hiphop/rap music. I too became a big 2pac fan at around 10-11 years old but not for the same reason as Cole but because of his style and image and of course his classic album All Eyez On Me. After that i knew i discovered something that i really cared about and that being music of course, music was always being played since the start but this type of music was for the young black minority and i had to be apart of it. Like Cole i missed out on Illmatic and for awhile i actually thought It Was Written was his first album, by this time, like Cole mentioned in my own school we were picking sides. I didn't sign with Nas though it was Jay-Z but i respected Nas's lycrism but for me and even to this day Jay-Z remains my favourite rapper. Me and my school friends would argue very chance we could about who was better this continued into college. As i got into my mid teens i started listening to Nas a lot more, i bonded with his music like i did with Jay-Z but i felt my life struggles was similar to the metaphors and similees that Nas was spitting. I think without Nas's music, I may not of ever discovered who i truly was as a rap fan, hiphop was the only male voice in my household growing up, i ain't the type of guy to just listen to anything it has to be meaningful. I think what Nas has done by educating the youth via music should be an inspiration to us all. Peace king.
