    Devin The Dude has come a long way in his 20+ year rap career. Starting out in the Odd Squad (who later changed their name to Coughee Brothaz), Devin went on to release 8 solo albums from 1998-2013. He's still around, collaborating with the likes of King Chip, Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger in 2014, but it definitely seems that he has slowed down a little bit since his glory days. And he should; he's worked hard. And plus, all that weed smoke he rhymes about has to chill him out...by now at least.

    Nas' first four albums famously wore portraits of the MC in a different light. He was a kid on Illmatic. He was an adult on It Was Written. He was a pharaoh on I Am... He was Nostradamus on Nastradamus. The uniformed imagery paired with the super-strong material he was laying down creates a consistency that no other MC has matched. Not to add fuel to a dead fire, but Jay Z's Volumes just weren't quite as strong as Nas' first four albums...let's face it.
