Son said " a caterpillar can't relate to what a eagle envisions".... nas >>> after my 4th straight through listen this a f*cking classic

Yea I caught that line...ridiculous. Nas knows how to say so much with so few words. That small line holds so much weight. He just has a way with words. His use of symbolism and imagery is not something to be overlooked. He's in a class of his own.

I fu*k with Summer On Smash the same way i did We make The World Go Round..i let it ride until the r&b n*gga starts his verse and i skip. I let Mary J's play thru because i trust her, that song is whatever but he k!lls it.

Still dont have a favorite after 6-8 listens.

Im listening to the album for the first time right now.

Man that intro beat is wack as fu*k.


EDIT......

Im on track 8

So far,I am kinda let down.Nas is definitely spitting tho.

Its Funny Nas is 1 of a few artists that really knows how to make a classic and what his fans want to hear from him beat wise/lyrically and he chooses not to do it every damn album after Stillmatic.I only want grimey sh*t from Nas.Its like the album is trying to hard to be something but I cant put my finger on it.

I feel these beats don't really fit him.The beats ain't terrible but I feel Nas is trying to progress to much and they aren't the best for him and those who been fans for a long time..Summer on smash ain't that bad for some reason.I usually hate swizz.

Imma see how the album end but this album is in no way touching stillmatic,illmatic,god's son or it was written.


It is the first listen tho.


EDIT...
Stay is Dope as fu*kkkkkkkk

Really feeling this Cherry man.Fu*k this track makes me feel good as fu*k.Im bout to make me a drink and call a bi*ch over.

Man this track to fu*king Dope.My n*gga Nas.

Man cherry is gon be on Repeat for a long time.Classic track man.

Yoooooo this bye Baby is fu*king dope.I couldn't wait til the drums kicked in.

It seems like the 2nd half of the Album is what it is suppose to be IMO.

Man the 2nd half of this Album is Golden.I really wish it would've had the same vibe on the first half.This album is pretty nice tho.Imma definitely keep listening to it but I cant fu*k with the Intro and Reaching out.

why you still in the thread for? its like u cant stand other n*gga's are enjoying the sh*t outta this album

We get it, its not your cup of tea, no1 expected 100% of the population to think the album is a classic, but from the looks of it 99.9% of true hip hop heads all agree that this is what the game needed, so you on the outside looking in when it comes to that demographic bruh
lmao @ true hip hops heads being on this site. the same f*ggots that listen to kid cutter, fake and little lame

The same way it's been out for a day and you can call it the worst thing since Purple Rain. You all must be on the same damn streets, bruh.

Wasn't expecting anything special, just another Nas album, and was happily surprised. The content on this album was what I was expecting on Dreamer/Believer from Com in December, Nas did the No ID beats more justice on here than Com did on No ID's beats on his album.

Solid 9/10 off the first few listens, his best album since Stillmatic (I think it's better than God's Son). There's a consistent and distinct sound to this album which is where Nas has really been struggling on his last few albums, he was all over the place with beats, content and features. This album seems very direct and focused.

Wasn't a big fan of nasty and The Don but they serve their purpose on the album I guess, Daughters is still dope. Love the way Reach Out flipped the sample from that Beanie and Jay track.

EDIT: this is coming from a 20 year old, not all of us are ignorant and caught up in hipster-hop.

The Black Bond had me going nuts! the flow, the beat, the rhymes, the delivery! I could picture that whole scene. Damn Salaam Remi flipped the sample crazy
