Nas vs. The Notorious BIG
Match-Up: Another secret war that never caught fire. Nas himself detailed his behind-the-scenes squabbles with the late, great Christopher Wallace on the 2002 track “Last Real Nigga Alive.” “Y'all know about my Biggie wars/Who you thought “Kick In The Door” was for?” the Illmatic legend recalled of the song that questioned the celebrated MC’s status as the king of New York.
Winner: The slight edge goes to Nas, but it would have been thisclose. Considering that the Queens, New York spitter was involved in (and won) perhaps the greatest rhyme battle of all time against Jay-Z, Nas’ huge heart pushes him across the finish line even against the iconic Notorious BIG.
