this cd is too tight. I'd say Nas and lupe are tied for best album of the year. lmao who k!lled it is one of the funniest and most creative rap songs i've ever heard.

the will.i.am tracks are meh. The worse song I think so far is Blunt ashes, even tho there is a strong message, his flow is bad. Still plagued with selecting boring beats, but hey if nas feels them, more power to him

This album is like any other boring nas album. Still dreaming is very nice

3/5 Just because he's nas

As a big Nas fan, and i mean big, I like only parts of the album....

Like all his albums, theres a good message but songs like track 6 make me go huh?

I too think the beat selection is sub par for todays standards even with strong Vocab...

I guess Nas is right, Hip Hop is dead because, if you don't have a dope beat, I can't listen to you babble for 4 minutes... Right now I like Fat Joe's, Games, Jay-Z album better on beats alone...

I had a hard time with Lupe's album too for the same reasons...

The business of hip hop has changed and I think Nas needs to stop f!ghting it and pay the Neptunes and the Timbo's of this world the money to get the hot beats because these message driven album's won't sell IMO, we know you for real Esco, now spitt on some hot sh*t and k!ll these fools out here...
word.

I'm a real hip hop fan. fu*k you fan boys that make that excuse for when an album is not up to par. No one is saying that he can't rap. IT'S JUST BORING AS HELL. sh*t we all like nas, but if I wanted a lecture, I would have went to class today. Rap has changed. Now you need beats to get people to pay attention. Otherwise you are just talking. And that AINT rap.

Exactly what i'm saying, Nas is great no doult but this album won't be in rotation and Nas will be all angry when hes doing it to himself...

From that standpoint, I think Jay, Joey and Game beat him...

Numbers don't lie...

Ain't no awards comming from this effort, street cred my a.ss yo, streets ain't supporting you anyways, theres not even one anthem on this sh*t...

His Video is trash when evryone else is shining, WTF, if you don't agree with the new formula, just retire cause this album is so 90's right now, Nas is stuck in the past... n*ggas won't even be bumping this sh*t next week...

Joey's album was a.ss

Streets have always supported Nas, that is why he always goes plat.

Why should he make a "formula" album and confirm to commerical appeal? Why can he do music that HE wants to do. If he doesn't want Champangne popping diamond blinging, eye candy hoes in his videos then that's his business.

Plenty of people will be bumpin this joint
