Album is 4.5/5 for me.. Nas & Swizz Beats fu*ked up a potential classic. How are nasty, Roses, Black Bond, Wheres The Love and Trust bonus tracks?

The more I'm listening to this, the better it gets. Mary J. Blige and Miguel coulda been left off though.

Last I checked that was called spittin.

Google multi syllabic rapping and then tell us what you see and the rappers a.ssociated with it.

Still sticking with my opinion that this slightly edges out Stillmatic even if n*ggas think i am buggin...the thing is i don't think LIG is touching the first half of Stillmatic that first half was amazing but the second half is only really good it wasn't great which brought Stillmatic down a tad which is why i think LIG edges it out cause LIG is amazing all the way through.
I can finally say I agree with you here. I think overall he outdid Stillmatic with this album. I haven't been into rap in such a long time, but I can't get over how dope this album is. Nas has forreal given me hope in music again.

I think people just don't know how to view a song like this when it's done right. They group it in with the lames in the game now that depend on these songs. It's still hip-hop, it's a new age way of going about this mood, and Nas did it right. Moderation, throwing a song like this in the middle of an album like this is perfect imo. It's when cats over do it, and make an album full of nothing but "hot summer songs" that make it lame. This song is a banger, and sits good on this album. No complaints here.

"Summer On Smash" is perfect, especially when you put it in context with the rest of the album.

It represents Nas becoming a single man once again & having careless fun. Its the high you get when u break up w/ a female, ur on vaca with your people ,and everything is a go.

He's partying like a grown man and not horrendously compromising his flow.

Almost every song on the album reflects or celebrates a particular aspect of his life. That's how I see it.
