it did tho
cause being on a label not as popular as the evil def jam, it kept him grounded and street
once the def jam deal fell thru he been reaching for attention with hip hop is dead and an album he wanted to title ******. now he rapping on some ross ish. and the dude said he didnt feel ross influenced is lyin hard
yea its 2012, and i didnt expect him to go plat. but he can atleast go gold, which he probably wont and street's disciple didnt have a single that swept the nation, but just a moment > nas past 3 albums
ok i didn't read everything in this thread...but have you explained this ross influence you're claiming?...'cause i think you're out your fu*king mind on that one...
and being on a not so popular label kept him grounded and street?? you obviously skim through Nas' LYRICS....'cause on HHID he explains exactly what he meant by it and a lot of people agreed when he made that title, so it's not like hip-hop was in this amazing golden era and he came out with HHID to go against the grain to garner attention
