^^its not a classic, but people do that about every album that comes out, they just say instant classic, its been down with every album this year, you shoulda seen how many said POME was a classic, smh that sh*t went double hula hoop.. sh*t was a.ss,

you cant tell if its a classic until a few down the line, it will tell you if its a classic

its just the way it goes on bx, people dont really mean classic they just mean the albums fire...

whoever says this sh*t is wack need to clean they ears out thoroughly.... I think it's a funny concept cause he sayin Hip-Hop is dead and he's still releasing that raw hip-hop we wanna hear

i expected this LP to be good but Nas dropped that knowledge like it was 94 again....
the Production is very melodic and flowful, that and his bars being constructed wisely creates a good combination and a output of hip-hop music....
I think it's intresting how Nas got that basketball player Chris Webber to produce track 12.... Blunt ashes is soundin real nice, I got it on repeat
it is kinda dissapointin there aint a Premier joint on there cause them 2 together are an instant classic
on the other hand, the 2 L.E.S. productions are exceptionally gangsta, he should've used more beats from him....
overall this album is gettin a 4 from me and I know I'll be bumpin it all the time for a long time....

Not a big nas fan but i ain't gonna lie this sh*t is fire i listened to it 3 times already i'll rate it a 4 cause there was 2 tracks on there i really wasn't feeling but most of them i thought was nice and for some reason i think carry on the tradition is the best song on the album that n*ggas lyrics is crazy on that sh*t

This album makes me love Nas like he's my fu*king brother. Mainstream album of the year. The only other mainstream CD that comes close to this is Game Theory.

Amazing album. Production is excellent, and as usual he brings his amazing lyrical talent to the table and spits it.

How can anyone call this classic?

Yep, hip hop is dead

If you were to compile Nas' top 25 songs, none of these would be amongst them

OK after about 25 listens, I can honestly say that overall, it's Nas so it's a good album but being such a big fan, i'm deaply disapointed about track 6 and 16... and that where yall at is not on the album, this being said, from what I understand, the Retail version does not include these two tracks and where y'all at is on there (Amazon.com) so to me it's a great album, he k!lled it and stayed tru to himself...

From what I was told, the version we are listening to is the version he sampleled for the media conference listening....


Heres what is supose to be

Track Listings
1. Don't Hate Me Now
2. QB Tru G'S
3. Black Republican
4. Where Y'all at
5. Play on Playa
6. Still Dreaming
7. White Man's Paper
8. Blunt Ashes
9. Hip Hop Is Dead
10. Where Are They Now
11. Let There Be Light
12. Not Going Back
13. An't Forget About You
14. Hold Down the Block

I mean what is it with you people, is amazon like the fu*king end all tracklisting. How many times has an album leaked in full and the tracklisting NOT change when it hit stores. This is 99% the retail. Live with it. Just look at the damn Itunes pre-order tacklist, damn.

great album,,, i give it a 4.5 out of 5,,, this sh*t is really hot, im reallin feelin it,,, as for yall sayin u dont like the production,, imma say nas always got them raw beats, that makes his style unique,, sure i agree some of the beats i aint really feeling, but thats variety, his lyrics balance out the tracks and make them hot anyway,,,, even tho i think it dont deserve 5 mics, im sure it will be a classic, i hope we can start hearin more albums with this much to offer,,, these days rap is gettin wack,,, papoose, nas, and jigga keepin it breathin, m cpr peace
