Today's favorite is Tribal Wars. Does K'Naan have any other tracks out there? I like his voice and delivery.

Nas and Damian Marley's chemistry in this album is off the charts. This is prolly the best album collaboration eveeeeeeeeeer.

music from the soul, nothin better IMO. ive been bumpin this s**t all day. its rare to be blown away right off the bat when listening to a new album these days. you know you got something special when its too hard to pick your favorite track. lyrics are unbelievable throughout.

when i first heard they were doing this, i figured it would be an album with a couple dope tracks but get old quick. everybody has different taste, but i think the production is absolutely perfect. the background is what makes them blend so well IMO

5 mics
NaS is the goat

Classic for sure but I hoped they would have had a suprise guess appearence from Lauren Hill.If anyone could snatch her out of retirement I would think these two would have done the job.

Stephen > Damian...I cant believe anyone would think else wise

Stephen sounds like Bob, but better.

This cd is OK, beats are wack

but "Friends" > anything else out right now

other than that I like the promised land, I wish they woulda done some more rub dub.

^ That's just it, Stephen is too much like Bob. Damian is like the modern version for me.

I want the people who gave it a 1 or 2 to justify their rating. We are all entitled to our beliefs, but how can anyone with a working set of ears not at least give this a 3-4?

I gave it a 4/5

yea i wanna hear what they have to say.when i made this thread i only listened to it once so i didnt realize how good it is but now after hearin it so many times i feel like i shouldnt have even included 1 or 2 mics in the poll cuz whoever voted for that is either jokin or didnt actually listen to the album.

why couldnt more music be like this. this album is so deep and inspirational. nas is a rap genius imo. this was the perfect album for him to do. he needed to switch it up a lil bit and that reggae touch worked perfectly. nas k!lled every song, there wasnt one weak spot on the album. BUY THE ALBUM, SUPPORT GREAT MUSICCCCCCCCCCCC

I didn't rate it. If I did it probably be somewhere between 3 and 4. I enjoyed it more then I thought I would.

That being said, I can understand someone giving it a star or two. It's their opinion. People have different taste in music. Not everyone is going to like the same thing. That's what makes music great.

wow...

I ain't gonna hate cuz I thought the album was great and is worthy of 5 mics but 181 voters? I mean damn, why can't we get these numbers when it comes to voting other albums? The Reflection Eternal album only has 34. Even The Badu album only has 79 and that has been one of the hottest joints all year. So whats up?

Anyway, the artwork and the booklet is pretty tight and I'm glad they posted the lyrics in the pamphlet. Nice historic pics and great facts about certain ancient leaders and figures

Apparently, there's a limited edition copy of the album. I pre ordered that copy, but it doesn't come out until next Tuesday, for some strange reason. Has anybody heard about this? Not sure what it consists of, but hope it comes with a DVD, or maybe some extra tracks. I haven't heard the album yet. Am waiting till I cop it.

Couldn't find links to a limited edition copy online. I ordered it from a store in my area and they offered me the limited edition copy. They're not sure either as to what it consists of,
but I know it'll be worth the wait . . With whatever it may be.
