For those of you out there who spend your time debating over the greatest lyricist of all time, we might finally have an answer. According to CNN, it's Nas.

In a recent article, CNN ranked Nas over other rap greats like Tupac, Biggie, and even former rival Jay-Z.

What does he have to say about the honor? "It's great to put a list together, but don't take it too seriously because your list won't matter 10 years from now or 15 years from now. It'll be a different list."

Whether you agree or disagree with what CNN has to say, you can't deny his impressive career. The 19-year rap veteran has released 7 platinum and multi-platinum albums since 1994. He's sold more than 13 million records domestically, and is considered by many to be one of the most influential rappers in history.

Is CNN right? Do you think Nas is the greatest lyricist of all time, or is there someone else who deserves the honor? Tell us what you think and why in the comments below.
