top 5 of 2006 easily...puts 90% of the commercial crap out there to shame..puts that sh*t jeezy album to shame. its nas sounding like nas and keeping it ny. maybe the sales wont show it but this album at least might inspire people to keep listening to rap.

What Da Phuck What Da Phuck What Da Phuck

Jay-Z album was garbage....and this is definitely garbage. This album is not going to sell crap...mark my words...he is about to do Lloyd Banks numbers.

The Hottest Songs On The Album We Heard Already Except The One By Kanye "Still Dreaming". What A Disappointment. As Talented As He Is Lyrically...Most Of The Prodcution Is b00ty...Makes You Think Who The Hell Approved This Crap? What The Hell Was He Doing In The Studio? No Premier Tracks??? Come On Man...Lets Be Honest...nasty Nas Is Really Esco Trash With This Album.

When I First Listen To This Album All I Could Think About Is Him Ryhming In That Kelis Video "Blindfold Me" Crap.

Damn! Damn! Damn!

Hip Hop Is Really Dead...

Most Of The December Albums Have Been Trash...Lil Scrappy & Young Jeezy Too...Damn Young Jeezy Album Sounds Better Than Nas & Jay-z Album Put Together And That's Not Saying Much. Damn!!!!!

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.
woooooooooooooooo... props.

Truth be told...we all like tight a.ss lyrics but come on man the production has to be worth something. Someone earlier put it best...for this to be a Def Jam release and Nas's first release on Def Jam after all the hype, this is has to be one of the most disappointing albums in years. That's real talk...he might as well stay underground and independent if he is going to make music like this. Jay-Z or Nas...I don't know which album I dislike the most...sad day for Hip-Hop

Album Is Not A Classic.. But It's A Very Good Album... One Of The Best Albums I Heard In Years... Yes.. I Would Of Loved To Have More Dj Premiere Tracks!! And Some Jus Blaze... Beats Were Decent... Best Track In My Opinion Carry On Tradition Song Is Classic To Me. How The Hell The N (dont Hate Me Now ) Wasnt On The Album Is Crazy Song Is Sick.. Basically Lyricism Is The Most Positive Coming From Nas On This Album. Best Album Of The Year By Far// But Damn I Don't Even Know What A Classic Album Is Anymore In Hiphop. Album Is A Must Cop!!!

I'm a Nas fan but I must say Kindgdom Come > Hip Hop Is Dead.

There are five good tracks on the Nas. Numbers 1,2,7,8,9. The one with Snoop is ok. The rest can go in the recycle bin. I love Nas as a lyricist but its not entertaining. Boring a.ss beats. I love illmatic, stillmatic, it was written, even godson better than this sh*t. He needs some more Alchemist and Jay to pick his damn beats. Nas has become a man of bad taste. sh*t is so boring. Listen to the rest of this album when I need help going to sleep.

What the fu*k is number 6 and 14!!!!!!!!

Creativity doesn't equal dopeness. This is what Nas needs to get instilled in his brain.

6 = Parody on rapper nowadays, getting good beats but can't rap well.

14 = Nostalgia feeling, the Unforgettable (Nat King Cole) sample is pure dope.

I took the Hope Acapella and two instrumentals. One from Timbaland, one from 9th Wonder. Then I put snippets of the Jeezy interview where he talking greasy about Nas. I mixed all these together in Microsoft Movie Maker. Microsoft Movie Maker is a movie editing program that comes standard with Windows XP. It's so easy to use, that you could've done this yourself if you played around with it. Took me around an hour and a half. It was fun. I thought I'd experiment and see what I could do with Microsoft Movie Maker instead of opening up my music making program. This ain't no professional mix. It's 90bmp and Nas is off-beat as hell. There's no fixing it. Truss.

Classic. The production is on point. But great production doesnt always equal a great album. Doctors Advocate did suprise me and Game had the best album production wise, but his album didnt feel like an "album". It sounded like a bunch of hot tracks on a cd where as Snoops was more balanced. But Hip Hop Is Dead should be album of the year.

Nas is on point lyrically. This is up there with Stillmatic and Blueprint. His songs have a message, there's some deep sh*t on there, that old Esco storytellin sh*t. This is the first cd in a while that I can say I wasnt dissapointed with. I got my $15 for the day it drops. I hope he moves units. If this dont sell, then hip hop aint dead, but it's dying because people will buy enough records for "Snap Music" to go platinum, but Nas is Hip Hop.

Nas is the god mc. This is a classic album


finally someone who understands rap from hip hop and this album is hip hop at its best. classic. props on post

Meh I dunno. Theres some good tracks but some really bad ones. Like everyone else said Nas does not have an ear for beats whatsover. The point of music is so that its pleasing to the ears, lyrics are only 50% of it. There are many artists out there that are entertaining to listen to while spitting great lyrics over hot beats. Nas is missing this aspect. I'll go listen to Game Theory and Fishscale instead... ill give this a generous 3/5.
