The 10 Worst Nas Songs

5. Nas f/ Mary J. Blige, Jungle & Wiz "Braveheart Party" (2001)

Producer: Swizz Beatz
Album: Stillmatic
Label: Ill Will/Columbia
Best Youtube Comment: "I forgive you nas for making this...one love." - nastynas373

Complex Says: Nas doesn't have the best track record when he hooks up with in-demand producers, but he didn't do himself any favors when he rapped over something resembling a ringtone download from Swizz Beatz. And it's one thing to let the Bravehearts ruin your song—it's not like this is first time Nas has allowed that to happen—but letting them trample all over Mary's stellar track record of rap collabos is just a shame.

That's probably why the Queen of Hip Hop Soul requested that this song be removed from all future pressings of the album, and why Nas complied. Mary said she made the request for "personal reasons." Translation: She didn't want her name associated with such a terrible product. And come to think of it, neither did Nas.
