This feature is a part of Complex's Nas Week, presented by Hennessy.

Nas has released 10 original solo albums in his storied career—not to mention The Firm and The Lost Tapes and Distant Relatives—and all are so different it's hard to pick a favorite. But with Nas approaching his 40th birthday this weekend it seemed like a good time to look back over his catalog and try to choose. So Complex TV assembled a panel of experts from producers to artists and hip-hop critics, asking them all one simple question: What's your favorite Nas album? The answers may surprise you.
