first. i aint tryna go backwards im tryna go forwards. and in no way did i feel this sounded like a 90's album, he just tryed to incorporate some of those elements. but for you to even try to argue that 90's music from that era didn't age well. damn we must be living in two different worlds. because i can still listen to the classic albums from that era continuously and the new sh*t normally gets a couple spins and is forgotten. obviously to each is own, but i dont know how you can discredit the quality of the 90's albums.
at that picture too.
lol i can feel that. It's not like I just straight sh*tted on the whole album either. I said there was 2 or 3 songs that I didn't like, but that every other songs was straight fire. It was like that 2nd paragraph didn't exist or something.
And I'm not saying ALL music from the 90's is straight a.ss but as far as the sound, it doesn't work for today. Trust me, I have my times where I can sit back, and go listen to some 90's albums and still vibe, I just think that when it's hit over your head with it, like the whole track would sound like it time traveled from 15-20 yrs ago, at some point it becomes nauseating. But thank God Nas ain't do that. He just included the elements like you said. It's just those 2 tracks was a bit much back to back, for me at least. I'm giving son props. He proved me wrong on this album.

On point my G. Everybody wannbe brand new not even realizing what they listening to.
I'm definitely not one of those stuck in the 90s n*ggaz. I want Nas to do what's true to him and provides us some fresh sounds and fresh perspectives while maintaining what had us listening to him in the first place. He did that with Life is Good. Period.
I agree with this also. This and Untitled will def be my favorite Nas albums behind It Was Written and Stillmatic probably.
