yea in all honesty, you can never give a nas album lower than a 3... his lyrics are always on point... his content is usually on point as well.

people forget that beats are meant to be a backdrop for the words.

most rappers dont use beats for backdrops but for crutches. either way, the beats do get a little too mellow at times, which becomes a problem for the lyrics because you lose interest...

How is Nas gonna be on DefJam and have sup par production, the lyrics have always been there for him but this production is not a step up from the last few albums.....Its the whole package thats needed not just lyrics. I was hoping he would have had some better beat selection.
me too

4 1/2 mics maybe 5 on 1st listen this album is nice start to finish NaS is top 3 dead or alive, he has to be. "Still Dreamin" wit Kanye is Crazy, nice beat. "Black Republicans" pure classic Jay & NaS, nuff said. "Blunt Ashes" made me think alot great track, Chris Webber did a surprisingly good job. "Not Going Back" is nice. Just an overall great album. Classic? i dunno definitely no lower than a four.

^^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....
