Hmm, at first I thought it was Nas, sounds a lot like him, flow and everything. But apparently he used to make music using different aliases like "Grandma On Drums". All the old music is taken down though.

So this leaves us these options:

1) It's Nas, who used the picture of some random Russian Brooklyn rapper he found on the internet to do a project with people he never worked with before, pitching his voice down making it... still recognizable.
2) It was Nas all along, using different aliases over a timespan of 8 years to see if he can rise to fame again, engaging in online rap battles, making a white hobo lipsync his lyrics for his youtube freestyles. Didn't really succeed so now he's pushing himself through Mass Appeal,
3) It's a Russian Brooklyn rapper, Nas copycat, being pushed by Mass Appeal. All are adding fuel to the hype by not disclosing his identity. They took down all his past videos to remain obscure.

Hmmm ... Option 2 sounds the most logical ... but I don't know ...

Anyone remember Angelous circa '03 when Jiggaman was about to 'retire'? Lots of cats thought it was actually Jay trying to relaunch a new career an put the whole Jay-Z thing to rest; but it just turned out to be some schmuck who sounded like him.

i'm guessing there's going to be some sort of disguise...but who knows, maybe it is someone else.  i mean, Action Bronson exists, but you wouldn't know that if you placed his voice side-by-side with Ghost.

How could anyone think it's not Nas?

 

"My debut sick like Illmatic, kill the static, had the greatest reception"

 

You could argue that he's comparing himself to Nas... But wouldn't a young mc who sounds a lot like Nas, writes a lot like Nas, and has the same attitude as Nas try and distance himself a little bit from the comparison? Or are we to believe this is some kid trying to capitalize on Nas's old success by biting his style completely...

It seems far too obvious that it's Nas comparing his new persona to his old classic. Because even if you disagree with the line and say that YOD isn't as good as Illmatic, the same person released both. And Illmatic is exactly as good as Illmatic...

But if I went to a gig to see somebody I had never seen before, how would I know if the person on the stage was that person?

It's when you place a Ghost vocal side by side with Bronson that the differences are revealed.

that would be pretty cool if he was rapping into one of those voice-changer things like they use to interview people in the witness-protection program...

Love when artists withhold elements of their being from the consuming public.  I kind of wish he'd release at least another project while keeping these elements of mystique intact though.  If it's not Nas, and I don't think it is, he's going to have a near impossible time ever living the comparison down - - for better or worse.

Is he signed to Nas' new label? If so, why would Nasir sign a dude who sounded just like him?

Hope that I'll be proven wrong, but this sounds too hungry to be Nas in 2014.
