such a great rapper. its a pity he is broke now while some rappers who will never be half as good as nas are rich and living it up
Nas kilt this joint
Hell this n**ga is so f**king good s**t this n**ga killed this s**t and it is da tin man song
So much better than most of the stuff out right now.
isnt this what the tin man sang on the wizard of oz ( the all black diana ross version)
Nas forever !!!!
Lots of other, more current, rappers have come along, bit Nas' style, concepts and flavor, then claimed to be better than him.

This is a classic "origins" rap. Think about who else has done similar.

The Wiz sample is bomb!
This instrumental so f**kin illll an wit nas lyrics equals classic
Hotness!!!! Likes that sample from The Wiz
npisghetto
too awesome
I LOOOVE the orignal cover of this song from the movie The Wiz! This song comes from the scene of Tin-Man. BUT Nas has done a great sample of this song...sound s good!!
This song just touches my soul
True music! Btw I'm survivng the time too.
Real music compared to the s**t I hear today.
jasonpolk78
this is tight I love the intro by the Wiz
cant nobody make storytelling songs like that real s**t...
Nas came back with a vengeance on this track, absolutely real and authentic Hip-Hop.
Let me tell you how Good NAS is,I'am 48 year old and he is the BESTTTTTTTTT T T T T .
the best mc ever
The best.
Nas your still so innovative and informative, with flow harder than almost all of 'em. Put 10 joints like this on one record, Illmatic reborn, killa
I love the West Coast (born & raised) but damn! Nas can absolutely kill it...

This joint is off the chain.Using that hook from the Wiz(Nipsey Russell), was genius.Typic a l Nas.
This reminds me of CLASSIC NAS. Feeling this song like CRAZY!!!
