List of the best Nas songs, ranked by fans like you. This list includes every Nas single, but true fans know there are other great songs to vote on besides the radio hits. The rapper, who got his start in 1994, is the son of musician Olu Dara, and is beloved by critics and fans alike. In fact, his debut Illmatic may even be considered one of the greatest albums of his time. Music videos and audio videos are included next to each song name, so if you haven't heard it you can listen to it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite Nas songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.

This list features songs like "N.Y. State of Mind," "One Love," and many more. If the order of this list bothers you, then stick it to the man by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
