n*ggas never really seen paper in this world
American blacks the teenager of this world
Give us twenty more years to grow up
Already geniuses... what I mean is this....
I used to worship a certain Queens police murderer
'Til I read the words of Ivan van Sertima
He inserted something in me
That made me feel worthier
Now I spit revolution, I'm his hood interpreter

FIRE!, my n*gga Nas dropped so many jewels on Untitled

can't really ever believe cats hate/hated on that album

the fact that one of hip hops GOATs can drop a socially relevant album like that that discusses and makes u think about race/race-relations in America and it go overlooked or underrated by the "Hip Hop community" is just sad

I went back n listened to untitled after the whole Trayvon/Zimmerman hoopla and sh*t just held more weight than ever...

-- I dont understand the disregard for the "Untitled" album. As much as I could feel that Nas has not reached back and collaborated with some of those initial producers that gave him his "classic" Nas sound, "Untitled" as an album, EASILY one of Nas' best, and most important albums.

At a time when he could've been trying to compete with Lil Wayne (2008) and making music about monotonous club or street sh*t, he chose to rap about things and position the whole project with a rather MILITANT perspective that you havent seen from rap in a very long time. He couldve spoke about the ice, the cars, the bi*ches, the dope-- but he chose to enlighten and challenge the very systems (so to speak) that he is employed by. To me, it was like hearing Public Enemy, "It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" back in 1988, or "Fear of A Black Planet" in 1990.

The (art of) militancy and pro-black perspective of what hip-hop USED to rap about-- with acts like Public Enemy, X-Clan, or even Dead Prez is virtually extinct...and I see the newer generations of (urban) youth are disconnected from the efforts and philosophies of the civil rights/pro-black movements....(obviously because of how hip hop/rap culture has grew into the mainstream)

I understand its a new day and age, but this disproportionate imbalance and overindulgence in rapping about "street sh*t" all the time is clearly one of the reasons why Nas proclaimed "hip hop is dead" and created such an album......(which also leads to understand why the culture, and subsequent music, is the way it is-- there is no effort to preserve it, over pimping it for the masses)

Although it may not be "classic"..."Untitled" is better than a lot of you all give it credit for...

no but what this proves is Nas is one of the best artists that strikes back with force when his back is against the wall.

when everybody thought his music career was over, he laughed and striked back with STILLMATIC

when everyone thought his personal life was jeopardize, he took it with a grain of salt and got his head right and dropped this gem LIFE IS GOOD.

one of the best artists when his back is against the wall. my homie 50 could learn something from the boy Nasir.

I'm not a fan of this shade of Nas.

I believe men should speak for themselves and have others relate through them and their stories. Untitled is largely vague and ambiguous with many subjects that are hotly remembered and debated by generations past that still live with us.

What is the purpose of Untitled?

Cube vs Nas? Nas wins.

Everyone else is debatable, in Nas' favor for a couple.
Cube has a ton more classic albums than Nas

Please elaborate, so I know if I'm going to be debating with fool or not. I'm already leaning towards the former.

Nothing else to elaborate on or debate here. It is what it is, if you don't get it you never will. Simple as that.
