20. Nas, "The World is Yours"
Lyrics: "Suede Timbs on my feet makes my cipher complete"
Track Title: "The World is Yours"
On Illmatic Nas has an impeccable technique, liquid flow, on-point production, and dozens of quotables (e.g. this line) Yet, all Nas needed was some suede Timberlands to complete that cipher. We're not entirely sure if not having Timb would screw the whole thing up, but Nas is the one with the credibility. We're just gonna nod our heads and drool over Illmatic for the next few decades.
