been thinking about this for a minute and have been contemplating on getting this.

what are the good and bad points of this album (if any)

shit is ill! i bang it alot still. if u aint never been into damian or much reggae it might not be as appealing but the rhymes, and production really, speak for themselves imo. id definitely recommend it

Really excellent album overall... More of a Damian Marley album than a Nas one though; DM kills it on almost every track, Nas is weak on a few tracks but really brings it on a few of the tracks the beats are really different and cohesive not really a traditional hiphop sound more of a "world music" type vibe w/ Afrocentism being the overall theme. The CD had really nice packaging and it got heavy rotation for a full year
Best songs for me: "Patience" "In His Own Words" Strong Will Continue" and "Dispear"

This album has no weak points. Arguably best album of 2010. Anyone who tells you differently has wack tastes. Marley and Nas both kill it.

It's great. A little inconsistent, but definitely worth checking out. These are my favorite songs on the record:

"As We Enter" (this one has a dope Mulatu Astatke sample):

"Nah Mean":

"Patience" (this one has an unbelievably dope music video):

no flaws whatsoever. but then again my family's from the caribbean so i'm biased. perfect blend between dancehall, reggae, and hip-hop with overt african themes. nas is still lyrically sharp but damian is the real star of this album. damian produced the whole thing along with his brother stephen so it would make sense that he felt at home over the beats. lil wayne surprised me and came with one of the more memorable verses on the album on "My Generation"
