Nas Time Is Illmatic 2014 – was Nas only noticed for his acidrap lines ?

Watching this movie one of the main bits that stood out was interviews with how nas was found and why he was signed with Colombia – thanks to Faith Newman and MC Serch where they acted like these lines were mindblowing in 1994…

It came down to two lines which

Back to the Grill

Verbal assassin, my architect pleases
When I was twelve, I went to hell for snuffing Jesus

and

Live at the Barbeque

This is Nas, kid, you know how it runs
I’m waving automatic guns at nuns
Sticking up the preachers in the church, I’m a stone crook

Better and stronger horrorcore lines were being spit before 1994
