     Chicago rapper, slash actor, Common was recently on MSNBC where he spoke about his favorite artists. Despite admitting Jay-Z is one of the greats, Common says that Nas is his favorite.

"I would say Nas, that's my favorite rapper. It's tough, because [Jay-Z] is one of the greatest and many can argue," he said in an interview. "But Nas is so poetic with it and I feel like his lyrics, you can write them down on paper and they will last for time. It would be like literature that we read." (MSNBC)
