* TeenGenius: He was considered this after his verse on "Live at the Barbeque"(in which he was 16), his single "Halftime" (made when he was 17) and especially after the release of ''Illmatic'' (even though he was actually 21 when it came out, the recording itself took place while he was still in his teens).

What's more ironic about this fact is that he's a ''middle school dropout''.

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 ''[[MagnumOpus Illmatic ]]'' [[FirstInstallmentWins as his best]].
