Nas Mentions Lil Wayne As One Of His Favorite New Generation Rappers

Nas recently sat down with REVOLT‘s vice chairman Andre Harrell for an interview about hip-hop, politics, racism, and more.

During their conversation, Nas was asked who are his favorite MCs of the “new generation” to which he replied: “J. Cole, Kendrick, Drake, Wayne, Rick Ross”.

You can watch Nas name his top 5 favorite rappers after the jump below. I’m happy he named Lil Wayne in his top 5 list, but I wouldn’t classify him as a “new generation” rapper, would you?

      U got me lol

    • realtalker

      i think you’re more the idiot here, how is rick ross not apart of the new generation, what do you consider the new generation? i am pretty sure that in nas’s eyes and anyone above 20 , would classify the new generation as rappers from the 00s and up nas is from 80s and up you fag

      • CarterBoy

        Drake, Meek, Wale, Kendrick, Cole, Thug, etc are all before Wayne and even Ross

      • dio6

        wayne is first from the 90s

  • AutoTunechi

    You can count Wayne in the “new-generation” even tho he’s a legend, because he’s going on a second prime

    • Sparks

      Second prime ? Bro what is you talking about second prime. Wayne hasnt done anything to warrant a “second prime” mostly cause of the lawsuit. I don’t think he’s going for a “second prime “. I think he’s just tryna release music at this point

      • Weezy F

        Lol second prime

  • Zak

    Wayne is not part of the “new generation” or rappers

  • 🍁Tunechi🍁

    Nas must be high

  • Raz!

  • 🍁Tunechi🍁

    Wayne been around like 20 years, nas hasn’t been around to much longer I don’t think

    • Sparks

      • 🍁Tunechi🍁

        Exactly

  • TooReal

    • Justin Cayz

  • Khosta

    Rick Ross ruined the list for me

  • CarterBoy

    Nas and Wayne need to do another collabo….

  • Carl Johnson

  • Travon Edwards

    Actually Wayne is the new generation because all of the new generation rappers are considered gay bobs, not rappers

    • 🐐Wattblt🙏🏾

  • Weezy4prez

    I know I’m late af on this but MTV didn’t even put wayne on their Top 10 MCS list of 2016. Wayne needa use this shit as motivation and kill 2017

    • 🐐Wattblt🙏🏾

      Because he ain’t drop shit that’s why maybe he would’ve been on there if they made it in 2015
