Can I fully relate to Nas' album as a white male? No. But that does mean I can't empathize with the struggle and maybe hope that things will get better? Not at all. Everyone has seen racism in action in their lifetime and a lot of us hopes for a society where their friends of any skin color aren't subject to racism.

Not to mention, everyone can stand back and look at this album as a work of art, just flip that sh*t on and chill to it. It's refreshing to see MC's rap with a purpose instead of rapping about Supermanning hoes or being rare like Mr. Clean with hair.

no most white people on boxden like"real hiphop".So they hate on artisit like wayne and TI .And they like artist like nas and Immortal Technique and the other half of white people are G-unit and New York stans.Thats why this is possibly the worse hiphop section on the internet.Because its filled wit HATERS AND Stans.Who dont have an open ear for anything except their lovers
Skin color doesn't mean sh*t, people just dont like wack a.ss n*ggas like Wayne that dont say sh*t.

Nas ain't No racist, he's just biggin up his culture, his people, he does it in rare fashion, he writes his lyrics down in poetry form....and you can tell he does his research on the topics before he speaks

How can you knock him for that??, i mean honestly, What other rapper actually cares about their culture, their people more than Nas...i really can't name 1

so i mean, Nas is old school, i feel he got alot of sh*t off his chest on this album, where before he may have bit his tongue, but on this album he was able to get his point of view across, and that was the whole theme of the album......

and if you actually listen to his lyrics he explains how "zzzzzz" is a much deeper word, its not necessarily black people, its all people

i know black people who don't even bump Nas, they say he's too political n sh*t..

the album ends perfectly too, "Black President"...

i mean so it ends where the world currently is, Obama isn't even fully black, but he will be considered the first African-American president ever, so this album is kinda powerful, its epic..

my personal fav song on the cd is "Were Not Alone", to me its just a deep song, great lyrics, and musically its all there

^ i hang around with a lot of different minorities & have witnessed little sh*t like not getting seated when you're first in line...moving to the nice white couple instead or going to car dealerships & nobody says a word to us. they're constantly getting d*cked around & it's little sh*t so if you say something then they act like you overreacting & you're an extremist or some sh*t. that's my personal experience with it.

I remember chilling at the mall back in high school with one of my friends from the old neighborhood, just a normal kid and I was watching the workers eye us up as we walked through the store, it was a fu*king joke. I felt so bad for my friend.

Only a narrow-minded fu*k wouldn't appreciate this album. At least Nas is speakin on some "REAL" sh*t, and not in the hood "real" and tryin to address current issues that are goin on in the world today, and using his music to get his point across. I never take offense to hip-hop, I know and understand that the hatred is towards certain people and for specific reasons. Being white myself I agree with 95% of who Nas points the finger at on his album.

thats kind of how i feel..

I gotta give it another listen before I decide if i like it though. I liked HHID and Streets Deciple alot and of course God Son and most of his sh*t before that, but this one's just a little left field for me. I liked his mixtape with GL though. a.ssociation should have made the album. But yeah I'm white but I gotta give it another go before I really like it or really hate it. right now its just your basic nas album with a twist.

...does half white count?? lol


no but seriously did you even LISTEN to the album?? i swear ppl be hearin nas albums but ain't *listening*. obv there's a lot of issues bout the black man's plight, but there are MANY other issues at stake and like dude said above he calls women and all races who's with his movement ni**ers on this album. he's not calling out white ppl, but corporate/political white america who are doing the oppressing.

and furthermore, it's very ignorant to think that. can white ppl not listen to blues either?? can white ppl not respect black leaders either?? some ppl are fu*ked up.

the way i see it, nas starts with the struggle of blacks but then expands to the entire oppression going on in the US right now

the part where he mentions that maybe theres a group somewhere controlling everything isnt just a thought, hes hinting at something...

I always hear white people saying "slavery happened a long time ago, get over it" and such.... A lot of them fail to realize that the same sh*t is going on now, it has just become less overt. I think Nas did a decent job of shining light on the current situation.. He talked about music being censored now and how the higher ups control what's released and what people can say... He covered a whole lot of sh*t that the majority of people can relate to... Just my .2
