List Rules Vote for your favorite Nas songs, not just singles and hits.

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.
