The title says it all. This is not "who would win a rap battle" or "diss war". Who was overall the better rapper?

Nas has made the Better Music over the course of his career compared to Eminem. The thing is Eminem is a legit Battle Rapper who was doing that before he blew up. Nas is a great lyricist and gave Hov a nice run when they was beefing with the Ether track but I think in a Rap Battle the one called Slim Shady would win.

In M’s prime he pretty much said Nas is better than he is, so take it for what you will.

Nas will win the greatest rapper of all time. He is a far superior rapper and wins hands down after Eminem who is better by a long shot and kicks Nas's ameture ass. Except when it comes to rapping because NAS is far above Eminem when it comes to rapping. Eminem is not as good at coming to rapping but once he is rapping he is the best by a large amount

I’ll openly admit I listen to more Eminem than any other rapper, so I’m not really qualified to make a good judgement, but what are some of Nas’ better tracks so I can get an idea of him? I’ve only listened to Ether by him.

You think Jay has better subject matter than Nas ?

I’ll openly admit I listen to more Eminem than any other rapper, so I’m not really qualified to make a good judgement, but what are some of Nas’ better tracks so I can get an idea of him? I’ve only listened to Ether by him.

Immediately these Nas songs come to mind.

1. Nas Is Like

2. Hate Me Now feat P. Diddy

3. The World Is Yours

4. I Gave You Power

5. The Message

6. Shootouts

7. If I Ruled The World feat Lauryn Hill

8. I Want To Talk To You

9. Big Things

10. 2nd Childhood

11. My Way

12. No Ideas Original

13. Blaze A 50

14. Purple

15. Carry On Tradition

16. America

Okay, so I am pulling from my ITunes.

NaS is my guy, and I don’t think the gap is that big, but I do recognize Slim as the better rhymer

The greatest hip hop "artist" of all time is very subjective but the greatest "rapper" of all time is Eminem and it's not even close.

What makes you think Eminem is easily the greatest rapper ? I hope it's not album sales as that's a bad standard to tell the quality of a rapper.

Eminem is by far in a league of his own. Not one person it touching close to his lyrical ability.

They are equals, I always felt like Em raiting Nas above him was a showing of respect, same goes for 3K, Jay Z, and others mentioned.

They both are very talented but Eminem is superior in most, if not all ways.

Well this is not proof that Eminem is the Greatest Rapper. It's someone's opinion that he is. Besides you said that Eminem was the Greatest Rapper and it's not even close. I think that to be very questionable statement. I think there are some Rapper who are on Eminem's level Lyrically and some Rappers who have just put out better quality Music. I do not think Eminem has created an album as good as Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt or Nas Illmatic or Ghostface Killah's Iron Man and I think rappers like Black Thought as well as Apathy are on Eminem's level Lyrically.

Marshall Mathers LP 1 was Eminem's best album IMO. I never thought it to be a Masterpiece like Reasonable Doubt, Illmatic or Iron Man. Heck, I do not even see it on level with some of Jay's other work like The Blueprint or The Black Album or Nas other work like It was Written. Good album like 4.5 Mics if we going by The Source Ratings.

Nas has always remained more artistic than commercial while Eminem fluctuated between both. Nas.

For me, that just means that Em is better at commercial stuff, while at the same time em has his artistic songs.
