In a conversation with Andre Harrell, founder of Uptown Records and current executive at REVOLT TV, Nas revealed his favorite rappers of the current generation.

His current top five, in no order, is: Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Drake, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross.

The clip isn’t long enough to hear his explanation (if there was one), but the question was a part of a conversation celebrating the 10th anniversary of Esco’s Hip Hop Is Dead, which turned 10 earlier in December.

Nas also talked about rap history from his hometown of Queensbridge and the racism directed toward President Obama while he was in office.
