"I think it's unfortunate that we have MCs that have never heard 'Follow the Leader' by Rakim. I think if you never heard 'Follow the Leader' by Rakim and you're a rapper, you're dead wrong. I don't even know what their inspiration is to write if you never heard 'Follow the Leader' or 'Set It Off' by Big Daddy Kane or 'Road to Riches' by Kool G Rap or 'You Must Learn' by KRS-One. That's why I think rap is on a serious decline. - Nas
