the beats arent amazing but htey fit the album perfectly and Nas' lyrics are above all mainstream albums released this year. I give it a 4.5/5 and if he woulda had better beats like with God Son or Stillmatic it would prbably be a classic but beats dont make this a bad album it actually helps it show Nas' lyrical ability and flow.

this album is one of the best I have heard in a while, not to put down any of the other albums this year because there have been some great great albums but Nas has always been on another level!

Im a Nas fan so I gave this 4

"blunt ashes" is so nice, C.Webber came through, and Nas k!lled that hook...

honnestly ppl on the bx make me laugh......any fu*kin album that comes out....right away they re like : OMG its a classic !!! LOLOL
like come on guys...first of all i love nas...i respect his talent....i just dont understand how ppl put this in the classic section.....i dunno but for me i put only a couple of albums on that list : DOGGYSTYLE ENTER 36 CHAMBERS READY TO DIE but not this.....come on ...its a ok album...but ive heard wayyy better nas b4 and honnestly the beats arent really that hot.....the only big big souding beat is the one with jay....plus that crazy number 6 track is really making wanna blow my brains its too much....dont get me wrong i like nas but damn ...i think his marketting on this was like ok ill try and sound old school ....and yes it sounds old school ...but its not a classic
the only track that i truly love EVERYTHING ABOUT is the first one and the one with jay.....i still believe ppl that are like CLASSIC !!!! LOLOLOL how could you say that ....pac must be turning in his grave...its like ppl saying devils advocate is a classic !!! OMGGGG a good rapper yes.....but EVERY track is the same i wanna sound like DRE with fake DRE beats LOLOLOL

i wanna see the classic poll choice removed....too many ppl abuse it

Ya this album is not classic but at the same time this album is dope. There is a lot of tracks that I do feel and it isn't all about the beats its about the lyrics. But with the production just being ok, that is why this album isn't classic. Nas versatile style never stops. Every album he puts out he is trying something new and that is what makes him a great mc.

3/5 it had it's moments but it didn't do much for me. The production is a.ss. Someone with Nas' prestige should be able to do a little better than this as far as selecting beats for an album. Bold statement to say hip hop is dead then drop a mediocre album.

Edit: And I think because there's so much sh*tty music out there people are starting to lower their standard as to what a classic is
