Complex Says: In 2006, ringtone rap had taken over and rappers were largely making similar-sounding songs in order to get some radio air-time. Troubled by the lack of creativity in the game, Nas titled his album, Hip Hop Is Dead. The album served as a wake-up call to the genre, with Nas doing his best to steer it in the right direction.
But on “Who Killed It?” Nas killed his own argument by making his worst song ever. The concept wasn't bad, but we can't figure out what made him decide to rap in that awful Edward G. Robinson voice. Maybe he was trying to get his acting chops up after making Belly?
