I met Nas in person as close up as you can get, I’m 5’10 with shoes on and he was barely 3 inches shorter. He might actually be more 5’6 than 5’7. One of the best to ever do it!!!!!

I think he was 5'8 back in the early 2000s

5'8 perfect
Peter 175 said on 28/Aug/15
This is an inaccurate listing mate. I doubt Nas wears lifts and he always looks consistently above 5'8. He's actually a weak 5'10, and like others have said he has bad posture. I think 176-177 is a fair bet for Nas. google nas with Eminem, Kanye, T.I, ect and he looks noticeably taller than them and he isn't dwarves by 6'2 Jay z at all
Zeeman said on 22/Dec/14
I saw Nas and Rakim together, they are both 5 feet 8
jtm said on 27/Sep/14
he doesn't have the posture tom cruise does but his posture is not that bad. there are people with worse posture.
UglyCasanova said on 26/Sep/14
Yeah he's 5'10"ish. Has horrible posture so appears to be shorter at times.
MD said on 10/Apr/14
With 5'8" Ice Cube:

He's 5'8".
Big T said on 8/Apr/14
Look at him on Fallon with Fallon and Q-Tip. He's clearly taller than 5'8", as I've said in the past. He was actually taller than 5'10" Piri Weepu when they met!
Viper said on 17/Aug/13
I think hes 5'7, and claims 5'8 in shoes
Dequan said on 28/Jun/13
Nas is 5 feet 8, I've met him.

Yeah jtm and I guess the All Blacks are all 5'7" or 5'8" guys overlisted by 3 inches
jtm said on 26/Nov/11
the only reason why people think he usually looks taller than 5'8 is because he doesn't lie about his height unlike many other people. nas was barely taller than 5'7 mark wahlberg and shorter than 5'9 jamie foxx.
Big T said on 26/Nov/11
By the way, Weepu is the guy with the beard and Nonu with the dreads. I dunno who the bigger guy with the hat is. Look how much taller Nas looks than 5'10" listed Weepu! No way can he be 5'8"!
Big T said on 26/Nov/11
Rob, I think you seriously need to reconsider this.

Click Here

In this video Nas and Damien Marley meet 5'11" listed Ma'a Nonu and 5'10" listed Piri Weepu of the All Blacks.

Nas looks almost as tall as Nonu and Marley and Nas both look clearly taller than Weepu. They both appear to be 5'10" range with Nas arguably slightly taller than Marley.

The other comments in this thread indicate that despite his claim Nas usually looks taller than 5'8". I know that video isn't perfect but what it does tell me is 5'8" for Nas is almost impossible.
jtm said on 19/Nov/11
i saw pictures of both nas and murphy and they looked around the same height but you could see what footwear nas was wearing.
perfect said on 28/Oct/11
looked taller than 176 eddie murphy on bet, but maybe he wore boots? but does boots give more than 3cm ?
damn said on 16/Sep/11
really? he looks taller, have u seen him next to jay?..
djaka said on 7/Apr/11
i remember one day when i saw him, it was after show, he is definitely 5.10
Cosmos tsibela said on 15/Feb/11
Come on peeps! Nas is about 3 inches shorter than dmx.if you've watched jay z's roc boys video...you'd realise that there's a head to shoulder ratio and jay z's 6'3.5.
Jock said on 21/Jun/09
I saw Nas in concert in 1997, i'd say he looked about 5'9
i will say that i also saw dmx in concert, he looked like a midget
i felt like i had been frauded by him, he looked like a bad ass on his album cover, the guy is a midget
Brad said on 18/Jun/09
Custom Timbs, 2.5". Of course Glenn was full of garbage with Nas. Nas rapped 5' 8" and got booked at 5' 8" and got Glenn got burnt in height next to him because he is 5' 6.5" with a Portman to Custom Timb cancel out on the footwear. Glenn did finally give up on the 10 figure. We don't have to see the Kelis-Nas side by sides anymore. He might be shorter as Kelis with a rolling pin on the noggin' might have been the case.
Haze said on 16/Jun/09
nas doesnt wear lifts. i cant believe the crap then glenn spewed out on this page. the second i read the comments on this page its obvious he was a fraud the whole time. and a mouthy one to EEEE
Chris said on 30/Mar/09
Nas definitly wears lifts him and Eminem strike me as the type of guys who would wear lifts.I'm guessing 5'7 with shoes and 2 inch lifts he's 5'10.
glenn said on 13/Jan/09
interesting post a-bomb.i agree with all as possible.i was mad for 2 years that people didnt believe me.if i say something,its true.the guy is 5-10 in the street.doesnt mean he really is.
glenn said on 13/Jan/09
i will risingforce.
RisingForce said on 12/Jan/09
Among the celebrities you have to ask about their heights Glenn are Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson and Nas.
A-Bomb said on 12/Jan/09
Could be lifts - maybe even most certainly ;) I have seen two different performances of him next to Jay-Z a few years back on youtube. In one he looked substantially shorter, yet in another he looked only 3 inches shorter putting him at 5'10ish. And if you look at the picture i linked below he looks the same height if not taller than DMX. Nas could be a 5'8"ish guy who wears shoes that give him 2 inches. I wont put it past him. And I honestly believe Glenn see's him like this and therefore in public Nas is at a height of around 5'10 1/2 or 5'11" in his shoes.
glenn said on 12/Jan/09
it is a good ad.he might the first rapper or black celeb to wear lifts that i can think of.unless sammy davis wore them.good reason to wear them if he dating kelis and is constantly listed at 5-8 and the rarer 5-6 i read once.couldve sworn he walked past me 10 years ago and was 5-6.my friend pointed him out to me.but this posse had there backs turned.maybe i saw the wrong guy.or maybe i saw a 5-8 nas and downgraded him myself as the distance did in my eyes,the faster they walked.i feel better that you and others believe me he looked 5-10.whether he really is,is another story.stallone can look 6ft or more.he sure isnt.i was upset that you people think i cant tell height or that im 5-6 or 5-7 flat.alright,he possibly fooled me like leo at 6-2 did.except,unlike leo,i doubt nas would admit to lifts.leo was man enough to hint it to me."its all in the period shoes".is what he said to me when i questioned how he ranged from 5-11.5 to 6-2.
Brad said on 11/Jan/09
He's a con artist. Uses his millions to get a specially made pair. Nobody owns Spike Lee like that in 1.5's. Spike must laughed his A$$ of looking at that pair of whoppers with cheese. He has to, he's married to Kelis. Looks reaaal bad getting owned by your squeeze in the hood. Imagine the fights: "you mean I can't wear heels at the premiere Nas?" "Sorry honey, gonna be 6' girl, I can't look that short". Who is chedda? He got his cheese. I like that ad.
glenn said on 11/Jan/09
well brad at least you agree he looks taller than 5-8.even if its a lift charade.i wasnt mistaken at all.except its possible he fooled me.
Brad said on 11/Jan/09
Nobody over 5' 8" is gonna rap 5' 8". NYPD booked solid 5' 8". Needed big guns with Kelis the night he met Lee. Whoppers with cheese.
glenn said on 10/Jan/09
thank you lmeister.i mean some people have to cut me some slack.if im wrong about 5-10,he is at least 5-9.no way he can be 5-8 flat.unless he wore lifts.which is highly unlikely,but not impossible.
Lmeister said on 9/Jan/09
I agree with you Glenn. I mean, if Nas is only 5ft8 then Spike Lee is like 5ft2-3 etc and we should downgrade hell of a lot of guys...
glenn said on 8/Jan/09
im gonna ask him.
TELLEM said on 7/Jan/09
i doubt nas would be off by 2 inches from his own height...just listen to his raps...hes a smart man...he knows what he talks about...if anything the most he could be off is an inch, like most ppl seem to be, but 5'8 isn't out of the question either. and plus his arrest record has him at 5'8
glenn said on 7/Jan/09
doesnt look 5-8 next to spike.thats for sure.
Brad said on 7/Jan/09
Check out any photo of him with anybody listed in this site: he's as he raps and how his arrest record speaks: 5' 8". At 5' 9.5" he'd be clearly 5' 9.5" in each and every photo, he isn't. Spike has height problems. He doesn't wear Timbs, he doesn't care, he'd be the first to say so. He'd like to talk about Cazzie Russell from Clyde for 2 in '70...at least that was what we talked about when I met him at a book signing. Cusin? Don't do my taxes.
A-Bomb said on 6/Jan/09
Well if he rhymed 5'8" he could just be rounding down from 5'8 1/2". 174cm at minimum I say, 176cm at max - I dont see a full 5'10", but it's so hard with his posture. Regardless I just can't see him as my height.
Here he is anyway towering over 5'5"ish Spike Lee Click Here
the shredder said on 6/Jan/09
I got a cusin that claims 5'8 , and I swear is 5'10 ! ... even barefoot he seems 5'8.5 - 5'9 at the very shortest !
glenn said on 6/Jan/09
woody harrelson might be another.
glenn said on 6/Jan/09
im also insulted rob put him down to 5-8.dismissing my proof in pics.knew he lowered it for a few weeks now.didnt want to say anything,but since we are back on nas,thanks for the good eyes of a-bomb.
leonari said on 5/Jan/09
He is taller than 5'8". He must think bad posture makes you look cool. Good luck with your back when old age hits Nas... Minimum 5'9" guy.
A-Bomb said on 5/Jan/09
I think 5'9" flat would be a safer bet here, maybe 5'9 1/2" when stretched out.

a pic of 5'8ish Eminem next to Nas - Nas looking taller and with bad posture.
Or hell look at this one with Nas next to DMX Click Here
Seriously Nas has the worst posture I've ever seen on anyone - his shoulders are continually hunched. This has to be taken into consideration. What do you think Rob?

[Editor Rob: there are some rare cases of a celebrity thinking they were a height and saying it without knowing they were taller. Maybe nas is one.]
Big T said on 1/Oct/08
Well done Rob, I love how you always take my advice :P

I think Nas is 5ft9in
Brad said on 15/Aug/08
Eminem is 5' 7.5" Glenn at 5' 10" NYPD? Try 5' 8.5" in boots. Nas was done without Timbs, he isn't under 5' 7".
Viper said on 14/Aug/08
"Zach says on 10/Aug/08
Nas is exactly the same height as Eminem"

5-8 for Eminem is hard to buy. Eminem looked even shorter than Mark Wahlberg on TRL some years ago. Eminem cant be more than 5-7 max, and that might even be pushing it. That doesnt make sense that he looked the same height as Nas.
Viper said on 14/Aug/08
glenn says on 20/Apr/07
you sure about that brad? nypd had me at 5-10. police reports are always a bit off,like you guys.diddy is near 5-11.

NYPD gave Glenn 5-10? lol
Viper said on 14/Aug/08
Though whats also interesting is that Glenn said plenty of other photographers and autograph hounds back him on the 5-10.
Viper said on 14/Aug/08
Glenn said his friends saw Nas at 5-6.
Viper said on 14/Aug/08
Agreed. I couldnt believe Glenn kept thinking he was 5-10 when he rapped he was 5-8 and the NYPD said he was 5-8.
Brad said on 13/Aug/08
This was probably the biggest over-inflation Glenn presented. Both wear big heels and there was a 5' 8" Nas taller than Glenn at his 5' 6.5" afterdark height. He went crazy. Imagine Nas in his custom Timberlands on top of a 5' 9.5" that Glenn said. He rapped he was 5' 8" and his NYPD Police record says 5' 8". He fits like a glove with everybody at the listed 5' 8"
Sean said on 13/Aug/08
He's 5'8 he even says so in the song tick tock. "5'8 wearing double xl". He prolly had tims on which add's 1/2 to 3/4 in height.
Zach said on 10/Aug/08
Nas is exactly the same height as Eminem, theres a pic floating around of them both excepting an award, and they are both the same height, so i'm guessing 5ft 8" / 5ft 9" ????

i'm 5ft 10" barefoot (recorded when i joined the gym) and Nas and Eminem both look shorter than me.

and Jay-Z is a solid 6ft 2", that's why he towers Nas in 'The Roc Boys' video.
Viper said on 8/Aug/08
I think hes 5-8 like he says. Glenn really overestimated Nas height.
Big T said on 8/Aug/08
DOWNGRADE NEEDED
Brad said on 11/Jul/08
Both Glenn & Nas cancel each other out in their footwear. 5' 8" for Nas. Glenn is as he is shown, 5' 7" with the evening drop. Fits like a puzzle.
anonymus said on 30/Jun/08
listen over here.Nas can be 1 or 2cm taller then glenn who is listed 173.and thats not his barefoot height to be honest.nas can be 173 barefoot and easily be 177cm with timberlands WITHOUT LIFTS or CUSTOMS.because timberlands give aproximatly 4cm.anyone who had one of those,should now.here is a explanation glenn for ``he appeard 5`10 2 me``.doesnt this seems right?
iGotOnMyBackpack79 said on 29/Jun/08
me & Nas chopped it up @ the record store and dude was exactly my height. i'm 5'8. i'm wondering if glenn is even 5'8?
socks15 said on 10/Jun/08
I met nas at a concert about a month ago. He was a taller than me and I am about 5'7 without shoes. I would put him at about 5'8-5'9 (he was shorter than my friend who's around 5'11).
Paul_Pierce_4_ever said on 27/May/08
I'll say 5 9.5 morning height for Nas
Derek said on 1/Mar/08
Nas could be 5'8 1/2" and rounding down. 5'9" isn't out of the question either. We know that Nas is slightly taller than Glenn, but we don't know about footwear. Footwear can be difference between a flat 5'9" and 5'8 1/2".
wtf? said on 3/Feb/08
in that new jay z song "ROC BOYS" he looks very short compared to jay and diddy. i am not sure but maybe he is leaning on the table
glenn said on 23/Jan/08
thank you chris175.thats what i always said.
chris175 said on 23/Jan/08
this guy is easily 5-9, some people just never bother to check their own height and simply dont know, he was maybe measured 5-8 when he was 18 and grew a bit more after it...
glenn said on 22/Jan/08
why does everyone forget women wear heels.everytime i saw kelis she had heels.
mon said on 21/Jan/08
if kelis is 5'10 than he's not 5'10 cause she's always taller than him in every photo, i say 5'9 or lower is right.
glenn said on 28/Dec/07
i read 5-6 in the newspaper for nas and heard 5-6 to 5-8 from people.so he is a mystery.but the peers i trust all mentioned he was 5-10.before i even expressed my opinion.

I met Nas several years back at Lupos in Providence RI. I am 6 feet and towered over him. He is 5'7 at the most.
glenn said on 19/Dec/07
thanks for backing my claims a-bomb.
A-Bomb said on 18/Dec/07
Definitely in Belly he looks 5'9" to 5'10". He never looks much less than DMX at all. Of course that's a film - camera angles, special shoes etc may play a role. However, Nas hands down as one of the worst postures I've seen which is why he probably appears shorter a lot of the time. I'd say 175cm a safe bet which I wouldn't have thought if Glenn hadn't met him first hand a couple of times and confirmed what i had always sneakingly suspected. He's taller than he appears to be.
glenn said on 12/Dec/07
trust me,he doesnt know his own height.in he movie belly he looks at least 5-9.at least.
Anonoymous said on 12/Dec/07
Why is this guy at 5'9.5???

He admits 5'8 and is 1 inch over 5'8 morning height glenn in his timbs....5'8.5 highest for this guy.
Anonoymous said on 11/Dec/07
"i always bump into him.and your point scarlet? i know what he raps.he is 5-10.i doubt a rapper wears lifts.people dont know their own height sometimes.i had friends tell me they were my height,when they were 5-9,5-10."

Perhaps because they never measured their height right out of bed first thing in the morning???
Anonoymous said on 11/Dec/07
um....lol nas must be laughing at this upgrade...I mean hes obviously 5'8.5 at best and rounds down. Perhaps hes 5'8 at night..that would still put him at near an inch over glenns height (.7 average). Add timbs into the equation and you have him looking 1.7 inches taller than glenn. Hes 5'8ish....5'9ish jumping right out of bed perhaps.

5'9.5...I highly doubt at any time of the day.

glenn said on 22/Oct/07
why would he understate his height?
Randy said on 19/Oct/07
I've never posted on here before but I had to say a couple of things:

Firstly, it cracks me up when I read posters saying that they saw someone from across the street or eating at a restaurant and now they know the person's height to the exact inch. That's hilarious!

Secondly, NO PERSON should argue with Glenn's height assessments. The guy has been doing this for years for a living and he's standing next to these people and looking at their footwear, talking to them and watching them walk around. He knows!

Thanks for the pics Glenn and keep up the good work. This site wouldn't be much without you and your pics. Don't let some idiots get your blood pressure up.

brad,nows not the time for you to debate.your lucky your still on this site pal.very lucky.
Brad said on 2/Jun/07
I spoke to somebody who said he rapped it in concert. What's that? There aren't any photos of him 5' 10", anywhere, except above. He's wearing custom Timberlands. I've met Kelis, she's 5' 10". I think he needs the customs. I know I would if my woman was 2" taller than me. Somebody just ask him. End this stuff.
glenn said on 2/Jun/07
and furthermore i just provided photo proof,twice!.and you still want to deny me.hundreds of photos here show me at 5-8,even 5-9.i doubt he has lifts in his timberlands.
glenn said on 2/Jun/07
read the posts j.there are plenty of reasons.kelis is really tall.5-10 to 5-11.
J. said on 1/Jun/07
Exactly, Annonymous! Why would a 5'10" guy say he's two inches shorter? Especially if said "5'10" guy looks like a regular 5'8" guy next to his tall, leggy 5'9.5"-5'10" wife!
Anonymous said on 30/May/07
hm i dunno met him in 1997. doesn't he rhyme 5'8'' a lot? someone has to describe what psychological complex would make somebody say th ey are shorter than they are.
glenn said on 30/May/07
read the posts brad.you conveniently seemed to skip the part where someone backed me on him looking 5-9 to 5-10.on different occasions.get your facts right.
Brad said on 30/May/07
5' 9" is out of the question. There is only one photo of him looking 5' 9" and that's above.
Derek said on 30/May/07
Nas looks about an inch taller in the photo. If Nas isn't wearing lifts and doesn't have a significant advantage in footwear, 5'9" is certainly not out of the question.
glenn said on 28/May/07
exactly maya.thanks for the support.

Glenn, don't get upset, these jerks who insult you are just jealous.
glenn said on 25/May/07
coolj, he said i was 5-7.read his post again.no offence,but its obvious he is saying im 5-7 period.straight out of bed.and you want to comment on that? i dont get it? that was pretty clear with him.whats the point on commenting? if i want to defend myself on clowns that talk **** behind a computer,thats my business.you would probably get annoyed too.
CoolJ said on 25/May/07
Wow Glenn.. defensive or what? I thought a while back we decided you were a strong 5'7.5 or so at night? What happened to that..
glenn said on 25/May/07
yep,your right mitch.you got me.your the expert here.did you meet nas in new york city? if so,tell me im 5-7 in my face.
Mitch said on 24/May/07
This 5' 9.5" is a joke. I've met Nas and I'm 5' 10". I was 2" taller than him. This Glenn dude is 5' 7" tops. I've seen other photos of people where this 5' 7" guy is so wrong man. Banging up people taller to make you taller man?
glenn said on 23/May/07
congrats rob on the yet another upgrade.im surprised.

i bought a cheap used cd once edited by accident.dont remember who.oh,dr dre 2001.and maybe got a freebie or 2.
Brad said on 14/May/07
I did by mistake....his latest: it sucks edited.
glenn said on 14/May/07
who would buy edited cds anyway? seriously?
Brad said on 14/May/07
5' 10" would have Nas taller than Mark Wahlberg, Simmons, Fox,West, etc. He's the same height. You've got his mug shot at 5' 8" and his own rap....what more do you want? Look at him with 5' 10" Kelis. Wears customs....got fed up. Ever notice rap CD's stink in the edited versions?
glenn said on 13/May/07
thats wild speculation on the timbs brad.its possible though.a-bomb backed me up saying he looked 5-10.and now your saying he doesnt ever.5-10 men are the cause of all mysteries and fights on the site.even in person for me.i even get fooled for a moment.
Brad said on 13/May/07
Kelis is 5' 10". Find a photo of Nas the same height. Negative bro.
Brad said on 13/May/07
Nas has never been 5' 9" in his life. He's wearing customs. I've seen 15 photos of him with height listed people: he's like he raps and his arrest record: 5' 8". He's in his custom Timbs.
glenn said on 5/May/07
and furthermore, belly is an old movie.dmx is 5-11 and that throws brads timbs theory out the window.
glenn said on 5/May/07
thanks a-bomb.for once someone spoke sense and defended me.i could repeat myself till im blue in the face and show photo proof,yet i get ridiculed or pegged at 5-7.nobody wants to hear the truth and want to play out there own fantasies.i thought of the 5-8 sounds better in a ryhme too.thought people here would be too stupid to understand that.and like you said,some people dont know,or dont care about their own height.then brad says he had custom lifts in his timbs.sounds like fantasy and far fecthed,but its a small possibility.and i even repeated that my peers and friends all agree on 5-10 for nas,yet everyone here including rob,ignores it.rob has a handful here i try to correct him on.he is wrong too.he wants accuracy,but wont listen.im hardly ever wrong cause i meet these people repeatedly.nothing against rob personally.
A-Bomb said on 4/May/07
I think this 5'9" height is accurate. Like I said previous he was relatively close to DMX's height in Belly. As for him rapping 5'8" on a mixtape most likely 1) it's a freestyle jam hence a lot of lines will be fill-in's, off the top of the head things, maybe he just fluffed his own height or just liked the sound of 5'8" better. (Might sound stupid,, but saying "five-eight" as a word is more a strikingly pronounced than "five-nine". I expect to be flamed for that one.) 2) The guy probably doesn't know his own height, seriously, lots of people don't care. He's probably just latched onto a height some 6'3" guy put upon him. And if Glenn says he appears 5'10, then that isn't out of bounds. Everyone should check out a couple of the live performances on you-tube he did with Jay-Z in New York last year and the year before that. He does not appear shorter than 5'9" in either of those, in one he does look a solid 5'10".
glenn said on 3/May/07

I remember when Game was arrested in that Winston Salem NC mall. It was a big news story.
Brad said on 2/May/07
It is Gggggreat. Gggg Unot. Word up!
glenn said on 2/May/07
hmm.might get that this weekend.sounds hysterical.
Brad said on 2/May/07
Long DVD "The Game Presents Stop Snithchin Stop Lyin" from 2005. On the hunt for 50 Cent. 1 hour & 45 minutes of shattin' on G Unit (GGG Unot). He's got an actor portraying 50 dating a big black guy in West Hollywood etc.. Lots of Game interview saying all the members of G Unit are pu$$y-A$$ Fa$$ots etc. Spray painting signs around 50's house in Connecticut. Visting Harlem & Queens creating mayhem in the streets. Ya have to get it 2-morrow. Added attraction was his arrest in NC in a mall.
glenn said on 1/May/07
its a music video or an actual caught on tape?
Brad said on 1/May/07
Feds. I thought Feds was what Jacob was up against....and he is. Every see the video of The Game in the NC mall getting arrested for wearing a halloween mask? Stores getting jacked and these idiots are arresting somebody in a halloween mask.
glenn said on 1/May/07
feds magazine makes me look like a spelling b genius is my point.
Brad said on 1/May/07
Gore Vidal next to ?. I don't know what the ? magazine is but man, I've seen sick spelling on this site from about 15 people that I thought could never be touched....and I ain't talking Kat or Mowse. Word up to The Game vs. 50 Cent.

a lot of men claim a fake height morning height i would understand since some people dont know we get smaller at night or they got mesured at 9 am at the doctor so' they are 1 to 2 cm smaller than wath they rhink they are like if someone claims 6 ft but is 5'11.25 or 5'11.5 is understandable like i was mesured 182 cm and 183 cm in the morning at the doctor 183 with a bit of hair and 182 with shaved head but after noon i am 180.5 ant at night 180 i use to claim 5'11.75 since thats wath my doctor told me but i got friends that claim 6 ft when they look 5'10.75 i doubt they got mesured out of bed and also that they loose 1.25 in thats a lot they might be 6 ft in shoes also my best friend claims 6'1.5 187 cm and he looks an absolute max of 184 cm and likly 183.5 cm he is almost 45 so even saying he lost 1 cm wish probably not or more 0.5 cm or might have been 6'1.5 morning and 6'0.5 night

glenn said on 26/Apr/07
you read feds at all?
Brad said on 25/Apr/07
Yes. Bling Bling book by Minya Oh has it in there. 50Cent is interviewed in it and just laughs about the pair still shopping there afterward. Jacob is in deep doo for laundering dirty $ so that's the least of his worry now.
glenn said on 25/Apr/07
i didnt know about that.it was reported?
Brad said on 24/Apr/07
Nas gave Kelis an engagement ring from Jacob The Jeweler that Kelis found out was worth a fraction of what Nas paid. I guess she opened a large can of upside upon Nas and got another ring.
glenn said on 23/Apr/07
i smell drama a mile away always.is there any pics out there,at least recent where nas looks 5-10?
Brad said on 22/Apr/07
5' 6" is ridiculous. I met Kelis at an after Britney Spears (she opened) concert party. She's 5' 10" plus added. Strange voice...sorta like deep. I left when I saw some sets by the door. I smell drama before the hamburger is flipped. You'll see at it at Oscar's fight in a few weeks. Yo no tengo dinero and run.
glenn said on 22/Apr/07
hmm.maybe.kelis is pretty tall.so he would want to look good around her.i did at least show proof that he does look 5-10.some ass mention bring on the proof,well i did!.he was reported at 5-6 once in the newspaper.i wonder if people noticed his growth spurt?.can you imagine? "yo,money,you grew overnight?".
Brad said on 22/Apr/07
Of course....he's a millionaire. Throw 2G at a cobbler: "make me taller'. The dude is 5' 8" straight down the line. What's another 2" by Shelley The Shoemaker? Jason Priestley & Matt LeBlanc have them, let a rappah get some height.
glenn said on 22/Apr/07
you mean your comfortable wih this notion? they have custom made ones? or he had them made? sounds farfecthed,but would explain the 5-10 sightings,not just by me of course.
Brad said on 22/Apr/07
I wanted to buy some but they had too much heel for me. He has special custom ones. I guess he got dissed my a fellow rappah (NY talk) about his height and had customs made. I've seen 15 pictures of Nas with listed height people and he's 5' 8" in every single one.
glenn said on 22/Apr/07
brad,both photos im close to 22.and i dont edit the site.i dont understand whats so special about timbs?
Viper said on 22/Apr/07
I will say, this is as baffling as Glenn looking 5-11 with 6-2-6-3 Bernie Mac.
Viper said on 22/Apr/07
Maybe he wore lifts when he met you?
Brad said on 21/Apr/07
He's wearing Timberlands! No wonder. Those things are height enhancers. Custom I bet. No wonder he's so freakin' high. Hey Glenn, why does it say 5' 8" under Pacino & DiCaprio when you were 5' 7" if under 22 years old by your own admission? This was asked by 6 people I know.
glenn said on 21/Apr/07
rob doesnt depend on me? your so sure of that?.exactly anonymous and horse.johnny depp and mike patton both told me they dont know there own height.so brad,first of all,some of these people are an inch bigger than you claim,but then what of my photos? why is he 5-10 in mine? you know damn well im 5-8 in hundreds of photos here.
glenn said on 21/Apr/07
dont talk to me like im a jerkoff scarlet,thats my point.i know what im talking about.my whole point is to make this site accurate and im getting heat for it.im not putting up with abuse either,if you want to use that word.your tone is obnoxious and i dont stand for that.you were attacked last week and then took it out on me due to your embarresment.one day,or maybe never,i will be commended for my accuracy.your feeding this site inaccurate estimates,yet you never met any of these people.i bring photo proof here that shows nas is taller than me,and yet you and the infamous brad still doesnt believe it.even if i was 5-7,he is still 5-9 there.he is 5-10.unless he has lifts in is timberlands which i doubt highly.you want to talk about the discussions going on forvever,yet if it wasnt for me,this site wouldnt be here right now.rob was going to pack it up when until i came along.i put these photos up free of charge,get attacked about my weight,height, and that im lying or dillusional about what i see.i think i should get my respect here,yet i dont.very little or almost no respect from alot of you.of course i have my supporters that i stay here for.if i left the the site and took my photos scarlet,i guarantee you or the site wont be here for long.so keep running your mouth bitch.you wont be running it for long after i leave.
Brad said on 21/Apr/07
I've seen 3 photos of Nas with 5' 8" Kanye West. The same height. You've got Diddy beating by 2+". You've got Russell Simmons & Jamie Foxx both at 5' 9" with 5' 8" Nas. Keep putting them up.
Scarlet said on 21/Apr/07
MD. Wicked find. Nas 5'8 consistently.
Glenn. This isn't your site and you abusing against anyone who doesn't believe your height or threatening Rob you will leave as if he depends on you. He doesn't depend on you. Discussions will carry on with or without you. Just bring on on your 5'11 Daniel Craig, 5'10.25 Damon, 5'11 Jude Law, 5'10.5 Stallone, 5'8 Jolie, 5'10 Nas. Bring on your proof.
Brad said on 21/Apr/07
Nas is 5' 8". Why don't you ask him next time you meet him.
Anonymous said on 21/Apr/07
my friend and i are about the same height, which is is almost 5'8 but he is somehow convinced he is 5'6! we argue about this all the time.
The Horse of FUNK said on 20/Apr/07
Honestly, how many people are really aware of their specific height? Contrary to popular belief, not everyone does. I didn't know my specific height until I was 20. I used to think I was 6'1". Before then everybody always commented things like "oh my you have grown", "are you 6'1?". Had a physical and got a rude awakening that I'm just shy of 6' lol.

But my point is, some people just don't sweat it like some on this website do. I think Nas is one of those people, along with Colin Farrell, David Duchovny, and Brad Pitt. They don't really care to be specific; it's not something on their minds on a regular basis.

bring it on? you had a vacation cause of my request. care for a permanent one? i will do it.im not putting up with you bull.or ill leave.
Scarlet said on 20/Apr/07
Bring it on Glenn
glenn said on 20/Apr/07
furthermore,none of you never take my words into account,and thats very disrespectful as i was there.you can say to me if you think he is 5-10,maybe your right glenn,but i think maybe its otherwise.immediatley you clowns have the answer every time. even rob seems to doubt me on alot cause he rarley puts the height i claim.your all silly,and its beginning to piss me off bad.plenty of peers of mine all agreed on 5-10 for nas.what about dmx? i read 5-9,he looked 5-9 in front of my face until he strectched out to 5-11.5.what about cobain? he is reported at 5-8,even said he was 5-8.courtney and i knew the truth.he was 5-10. 5-8 with a bad slouch.now wait till you get a load of what i say on the daniel craig page ms scarlet.you were the laughing stock in nyc and didnt even know it.
glenn said on 20/Apr/07
scarlet,you never met any of these people so you dont know.yes,rob,police descriptions arent always accurate and they vary.nas is 5-10.same goes for all of you.as my friends and peers laughed at you guys last night.they all said the same thing.have you met any of these celebs?no.you guys dont want to hear the truth.nas was reported at 5-6 in the newspaper once.5-7 for rod stewart,who is 5-11. 5-8 for jagger who is 5-10.wahlberg was over 5-9 when i last saw him.now he is most likely 5-8.
Viper said on 20/Apr/07
This is a mystery. He raps hes 5-8 all the time and a mugshot has him at 5-8, yet with Glenn looks closer to 5-10. All I can come up with is he might wear lifts.
J. said on 20/Apr/07
Nas has aged and put on some weight since the last photo. I think marriage and maturing is the reason for his opening up. I still mantain that he's in 5'8" range. Kelis can tower over him with heels.
Brad said on 20/Apr/07
NYPD would have solid description on a felon, especially for what he did. They probably measured you in shoes. Look at Wahlberg & Nas. There's more evidence. Diddy is 6' in his arrest record.

[Editor Rob: this was mentioned before, Diddy is 5ft 10 and 6ft in 2 separate arrest records.]
Scarlet said on 20/Apr/07
Nas and Wahlberg both 5'8. Good find Rob!
Diddy is 5'10 on the dot. Some argue shorter but he isn't. He is on the dot.
glenn said on 20/Apr/07
please scarlet.that photo is a joke.
glenn said on 20/Apr/07
you sure about that brad? nypd had me at 5-10. police reports are always a bit off,like you guys.diddy is near 5-11.
Scarlet said on 20/Apr/07
2 inches shorter than 5'10 Diddy

[Editor Rob: to be honest its a bad pic...

but here is something to ponder, not perfect but of interest maybe:

Nas and Wahlberg]
Brad said on 20/Apr/07
I pulled his NYPD '95 arrest mug shot & description. He was 5' 8" and 150 pounds. Go to the Smokingun.com and it is in there. I think the NYPD knows his height on a weapons charge.
glenn said on 19/Apr/07
i always bump into him.and your point scarlet? i know what he raps.he is 5-10.i doubt a rapper wears lifts.people dont know their own height sometimes.i had friends tell me they were my height,when they were 5-9,5-10.
Scarlet said on 19/Apr/07
Said he is 5'8 on one of his raps
"5-8 with double-X-L pen saggin blunts draggin
But never lived well, imagine, a felon on a two-way street
One way is where blood money coke and homicide leap
The other street opportunity the chance to live sweet"
The Horse of FUNK said on 19/Apr/07
Yeah, he's certainly over 5'8". In fact, the more I see this guy, the more he seems 5'9.5"+. I wouldn't have a clue what he enjoys sporting for footwear, though. Pics where you can see celeb's feet/shoes are about as common as Rosie O'Donnell in a beauty pageant.
glenn said on 19/Apr/07
i dont care what he said or what you said.the man is 5-10 and all of my peers,photographers and autograph dealers agree.he doesnt know his own height then,or is stating his old height.there are hundreds of pics on the site where i look 5-8,even 5-9 moron.
Jay said on 19/Apr/07
I just want to know....how the hell did you meet him?
Ray said on 18/Apr/07
this is proof that glenn isn't 5''8. nas has rhymed on practically every album that he is 5 foot 8.
Mr. T said on 18/Apr/07
He looks like he could be pushing 5'10". Why would he downgrade that much?

His new album is amazing, and Illmatic is of course one of the essentials of the 90s. His dad's a great musician too.
The Horse of FUNK said on 18/Apr/07
Seems more 5'9.25 to me. Could be one of those elusive 176cm men.
glenn said on 18/Apr/07
ive been telling everyone all along he is 5-10.and nicer now.
D. Ray Morton said on 18/Apr/07
Nice pics. I like Nas.

He looks 5'9"+ here.
Editor Rob said on 18/Apr/07
To be fair, in this other glenn pic Nas he does also not look short, I can't not at least put him up a bit.
Tony said on 23/Feb/07
I met Nas in 1996 after a show at the House of Blues in New Orleans. I am 5'8"1/2 and Nas looked just a hair taller. I think 5'9" is a fair judgement. We both had on sneakers. The people here screaming 5'6" and 5'7" are nuts. That is impossible.
Anonymous said on 14/Feb/07
he looks at least 177cms,or 5'10" on videoclips and he´s at least 4 cms taller than glenn
178 cms is sharp
Glenn said on 26/Dec/06
Thanks Anonymous,for backing me that Nas can look taller.
J. said on 26/Dec/06
Yeah, Nasty Nas is a solid 5'8",guys. Those pics Rob posted prove it. (Method Man makes those other three look like the Mighty Muchnkins of Hip Hop. lol) I do think Glenn has a point in that he can come across as being slightly taller sometimes. But who doesn't? We all have our 'I look taller than normal' days. Nas does have a rep for being kinda stand-offish and unfriendly.
Anonymous said on 26/Dec/06
Nas is elusive height wise. A series of photos from last year with nas performing with Jay Z give the impression of a solid 5'8" guy. However, I recently saw a video of a performance only a few months old with Nas and Jay Z where Nas looks nothing less than 5'10. Also in the movie Belly, Nas is only very slightly shorter than DMX. Could be an issue of posture
Glenn said on 25/Dec/06
My word isnt law on 98% of these names.it is on Colin Farrel.and maybe Sly.Nas could be 5-8.especially with those pics Rob posted.

[Editor Rob: maybe another enigma, 5ft 8 one minute, 5ft 9 the next.]
Glenn said on 24/Dec/06
Lifts? hard to believe he or any rapper would know what lifts are,let alone new actors.anything is possible,he is talented,intelligent and spawned from a legendary father.unlike the other goons.
Glenn said on 24/Dec/06
Wow,he was 29 huh? well I had a friend of mine tell me he was midget 7 years ago,so people do think he is short.and Kelis is TALL.so yeah,she is between 5-10 and 6ft,Id say near 6ft.I do have a photo with her.not sure if its on the site.other peers of mine said 5-10 for Nas.another DMX we have here.he played here and was around all week.he was such a jerk last year when I bumped into him that I dont care to meet him again.this past week wouldve been great to judge again.
Viper said on 24/Dec/06
I beleive Glenn's sighting. He said he looked 5-10 and sure enough, he looks about 5-10 or close to it standing fairly straight. Now, could he have been wearing lifts?
Glenn said on 24/Dec/06
Again,like another guy on another post,before we argue,reread my post.6 people cant be wrong.Ive read 5-6 for Nas,and 5-8 for DMX.both wrong.some people dont know their own height.the 5-8 lyric was maybe his height at one time.I know what my eyes saw.thank you Viper.people ALWAYS forget my evidence.
Viper said on 23/Dec/06
That guy does look about 5-10 iin the picture.
J. said on 23/Dec/06
5'10" he's not. He's said 5'8" himself. Is he lying? Just because someone whose not that familiar with him saw him in person doesn't mean that they don't miscalculate height.
Glenn said on 22/Dec/06
Then how is he 5-10 all the time in the streets? you ever meet him J? I doubt rappers even know about lifts or care.but anything is possible.DMX was claimed short too.and he is damn near 6ft!
leonari said on 22/Dec/06
Nas is a strange guy. Great lyricist but... he always looked short to me. On TV!!! Most guys look fairly tall at 5'10" (Clooney for example) I trust Glenn: He says the man is 5'10"-I believe him. But Nas somehow has this quality of appearing like a short guy...Bad proportions I guess. If you would have asked me I would have said 5'7"...
J. said on 22/Dec/06
No way is he 5'10". If so, Kelis is 6 feet barefoot. She towers over him in heels. Plus he said he was 5'8" in a past lyric, which is posted below.
Glenn said on 22/Dec/06
Nas is 5-10.plenty of autograph dealers and photogs backed me on that.
Glenn said on 27/Aug/06
Your ignorant Project dude.in fact I had a discussion with my peers about Nas and they all say he is 5-9,5-10.so 5-6 to 5-8 is a myth.Ill tell you a rap concert Ill be at one day,and say Hi and tell me Im 5-7.thats if you live in the city.ignorance is outside NYC too.you just never met any of these people and assume.never ass,u,me cause you make an ASS out of U and ME.1000 photos up with 5-9rs like Deniro and you still are blind.
6-5 project dude said on 26/Aug/06
this picture shows that glen is definetly 5'7, cmon rob, dispell the myth of glen's alledged height bein 5'8
Glenn said on 8/May/06
I read 5-6 and was told 5-6.so imagine my shock.lifts?
J. said on 7/May/06
He says on the song "Tick Tock", "5'8 with double-X-L pen saggin blunts draggin".
not tall not small said on 6/May/06
how are you guys gunna say he 5'8 when he clearly has at least inch and a half on glenn,come on cant u see
Glenn said on 15/Jan/06
your forgetting that he LOOKED 5-10 to me.it was strange.and by the look on my face I had to fight for the photo.not a cool guy.
Glenn said on 14/Jan/06
I was shocked,cause my friends claimed 5-6! well whatever he is I cant explain why he caught me out there that night looking 5-10 to me,I need some timbs!
J. said on 13/Jan/06
I say that the pic above makes Nas look possibly a smidgen over 5'8" but defintely not the 5'9" mark. Then again, shoes can't be seen and Glenn is leaning, so this may not the best pic to argue that Nas is taller than 5'8".
CoolJ said on 13/Jan/06
Glenn has a big lean or so it seems.. What kind of shoes does Nas have on.. He looks 5'8
A-Bomb said on 13/Jan/06
Yeah, but Nas is big on those Timberland boots which can give upwards of two inches which may explain why he was looking taller with Glenn. I'd say he in the 5'8-5'9" range.
Glenn said on 12/Jan/06
wait till you see my pic.he was 5-10 this night!
123 said on 2/Jan/06
On the song "tick tock" he says "5'8, wear double XL, pants saggin" so thats it, settled.
Jim M said on 9/Dec/05
nas, 5'6? no way, check this: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/1008041hiphop9.html 5'8
F-ICP said on 17/Nov/05
Actually, I just checked Kelis' height on here, and it is 5'9" which I believe, and I believe according to her statement (that she is 3 inches taller than Nas) that would make Nas 5'6"
F-ICP said on 17/Nov/05
Anonymous, what you just said does not make sense - you said Kelis said that Nas is 3 inches smaller than her and that she claimed that she is 5'10", so that would put Nas at 5'7", sorry, but do the math! And I do think that Nas is actually 5'7", he is always in his Timberlands so that's like 3 inches right there
Anonymous said on 15/Nov/05
Kelis said that her husband Nas is 3 inches smaller than her and she also said that she is 5'10. So I think he is 5`9!
Sah2 said on 1/Aug/05
He said that he was 5'8" on a recent mixtape record.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 7/Jun/05
Nas I knew was small and I'd always thought he was 5'9 possibly 5'10 but 5'8 seems right and in his video'JUST A MOMENT" wit Quan(who's 5'11 or 6'0) Nas looks 5'8 or 5'9.
