I gave it a 4 for "dope", the test of whether it is a classic or not will come 4-5 years from now and if I still listen to it and think "thats dope". It is looking like it will though since it has that quality that usually means it has a lot of replay value..that quality is that it gets better with every listen. I've had it since I copped the CD last week and listened to it everyday. I usually buy digital, but I had to have the physical of this one, even though I wasnt expecting all that much. I'd also tried to not listen to the leaks. The only song I had really heard was "As We Enter".
I have been pleasantly surprised by this album. After the disappointment of the "Wu Massacre", I thought this album might produce 4-5 solid songs and then some mediocre songs. But its turned out to be an album I can play back to back and production wise is a beautiful mix of genres. Both Damien and Nas do their thing and play to their strenghts e.g. no Nas trying to rock a jamaican accent....like he says "he speaks patois, I speak rap star".
Brilliant album, puts B.O.B to shame. So far this and "Left Back" from Little Brother have been the bright spots in an otherwise very boring and disappointing year so far with hip-hop albums.

yeah good points but i kinda feel like BoB did his thing tho...he was a little o.d. with the singing but overall i think it was a great first album effort. Either way it isnt f**kin wit distant relatives tho

Yo you can tell all the music was made in the studio with live instrumentation, thats why it dont sound like the s**t we always hearing on the Radio. I think the music is what makes this album even special however Nas and Damian Marley are the best at what they do and their lyrical content and message is why this album is straight 5 Mics. People wanna hate but honestly it dont get no better than this. "Teflon love for my dudes who solid..." dont hate for no reason

it's probably been said to death already, but i'm of the opinion that this album is an INSTANT classic. Besides "My Generation," there isn't a sub-par cut on this album. Friends and Africa Must Wake Up are my two personal favorites, but its close I like them all.
