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]].

* ShoutOut: The album art for ''Stillmatic'' bares a pretty blatant resemblance to that of ''Music/TheGreatAdventuresofSlickRick''; Nas, who admires Music/SlickRick greatly, had it made that way as an act of {{Homage}}.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He and frequent collaborator AZ have repeatedly discussed a collabo album that has never come to fruition.
** Much of ''I Am...'' was completely rerecorded in one month after [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings several of the planned tracks were leaked to the internet]]. For those curious, most of the leaked material (notably, "Drunk by Myself" and "Poppa was a Playa") eventually was released on ''The Lost Tapes'' to great acclaim, which makes one wonder what ''I Am...'' would have originally sounded like.
** More recently, it appears that Nas was interested in getting Music/JayZ and Music/{{Eminem}}, both prominent fathers in hip-hop with daughters, on a remix of "Daughters". Eminem reportedly turned it down because he felt as if he had put his daughter's name in his songs enough already, while Jay-Z was busy at the time. Considering how skilled all three of them are, the "Daughters" remix might qualify as the best rap song never made.

* CanonDiscontinuity: The track "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qUHU32QH68 Braveheart Party]]" was removed from ''Stillmatic'', apparently at Mary J. Blige's request. Both the fans and Nas have ignored this song's existence.
