* MisaimedFandom: Many listeners thought Nas was taking subliminal shots at Tupac in his song "The Message" with the opening lines ("Fake thug, no love,you get the slug CB4 Gusto"), including Tupac himself. The truth is Nas was actually taking shots at TheNotoriousBIG in the whole song and the fake thug he mentioned in the song was just any typical thug in general who would get no love in the streets and receive a bullet for their troubles.

* CreatorBreakdown: Nas was creatively running on fumes for ''Nastradamus'' due to his mother's worsening illness, and it shows.

* In a rare double-example of this trope, Nas's first on-record appearance, on the Main Source's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-zndpG0eS8 Live at the Barbeque]]", is considered by some to be one of his best verses.

* InsultBackfire: Like virtually any rapper in his position, Nas shrugged off Jay-Z's "Takeover", which insulted him and fellow Queenbridge natives Mobb Depp, but as he pointed many times in later interviews, "The streets"' response to it was basically "You're gonna let him get away with talking shit about you".
* HarsherInHindsight: [[ItMakesSenseInContext ''Hip Hop Is Dead''.]]

* BaseBreaker: ''Nastradamus,'' to an extent: While widely considered to be his weakest album, fan opinion tends to divided on whether [[SoOkayItsAverage it's a mostly decent album]] [[WereStillRelevantDammit marred by unusually bad singles]], or a [[NeverLiveItDown mostly-terrible album]] with only a few decent tracks.

** On another note, one can also say that ''God's Son'', despite the catchiness of some of its tunes, isn't as emotionally/intellectually nuanced as most of his other albums, including ''Hip Hop Is Dead''.

* MagnumOpus: ''Illmatic'' again.
** Not at the same level as ''Illmatic'', but many consider ''Life is Good'' to be the MagnumOpus of Nas at a different point in his life (he was in his teens making ''Illmatic'', he made ''Life is Good'' when pushing 40).
*** Nas' career has been one of waxing and waning. ''Illmatic'' is considered the best of his first three albums while ''Stillmatic'' and ''God's Son'' were returns to form in the middle of his career, and ''Life is Good'' is widely considered the best of his more recent albums.
