Aside from his rapping, Nas is best known for his feud with his rival Music/JayZ, both of them inserting jabs at each other in their songs, most notably Nas' "Ether" on ''Stillmatic'' and Jay-Z's "Takeover" on ''The Blueprint''. However, they formally ended their rivalry around October 2005, even performing together at concerts sponsored by hip-hop radio stations based in New York.

After his childhood in the Queensbridge housing projects, Nas entered the rap scene with his debut ''Illmatic'' in 1994. Critically acclaimed due to its educated lyrics, flawless delivery, and innovative beats, the album was an instant classic and thrust him into the critical spotlight. He was also part of the hip-hop group The Firm. His albums since then have mostly been big hits with the critics and the public, [[ToughActToFollow although many still point]] to ''Illmatic'' [[FirstInstallmentWins as his best]].
