Personal it's one of my favourite Nas albums, it was the first one I bought along with I Am but I listened to this a lot more and I still like it now.

8.5/10 for me.

the album wasnt all that imo, too much filler
1. get down (5/5 great classy storytelling, fat beat)
2. the cross (3/5 nas comes good lyrically, but (sighs) is produced by eminem)
3. made you look (5/5 this is real hip hop, classic nas rips it)
4. last real nigga alive (4/5 nas explains about the beef hes been involved with, bland beat takes away from it)
5. zone out feat. bravehearts (5/5 this is pretty fuckin sick, the beat is like backwards or sumthin, even bravehearts have some good verses)
6. hey nas feat. kelis & claudette ortiz (3/5 so so rnb type track)
7. i can (3/5 lyrics are very mature, maybe a little patronising though + boring beat)
8. book of rhymes (5/5 inventive track, nas flicking through his book to get some rhymes, nice alchemist beat)
9. thugz mansion (ny) feat. 2pac & j. pheonix (2/5 never liked this track)
10. mastermind (5/5 classic id say, lyrically incredible)
11. warrior song feat. alicia keys (3/5 another duck ass beat)
12. revolutionary warfare feat. lake (5/5 another classic, lake and nas trade some sick verses over alchemist soulful loop, i read that lakey the kid is actually signed to death row now)
13. dance (4/5 a lotta people seem to like this, its like nas tribute to his mom)
14. heaven (5/5 nas classic, he addresses the world on modern day issues similar vein to 'poison')

I actually like the beat on The Cross. last real nigga alive is a more boring beat but I still like that song.

I also think the chorus on I can is cheesy its not the beat that makes the song bad, its still an ok song tho.

overall I can listen to it all the way thru... dance I find quite boring but I can listen to it... i think this was one of the albums that opened my eyes to more lyrical rapping. a lot of the topics were different to what I was listenin to at the time which was mostly mainstream stuff.

the strength of Made You Look is enough to make this album one to buy. peace

Get Down is one of Nasī best songs...Salaam Remi has some sick production on this Streets Disciple I think is more solid; but this has better tracks I Can is great lyrically; as is Made You Look (classic); Last Real Nigga Alive and the last two Dance and Heaven are real touching but this isnīt my fav Nas album not even my 4th... ZOne Out should be in the Hague for war crimes

Very solid album by Nas. I think this album is underrated, there are alot of very good songs on this album like:

Thugz Mansion
Get Down
Dance
Heaven

i always liked this album a lot, never understood why a lot of people don't
of course illmatic and stillmatic are better. it was written too. god's son comes fourth imo, before i am

album deserves 4.5 mics. I wish he threw some of the songs on there from Lost Tapes and it wouldhave been classic. Book Of Rhymes, Made U Look & Revolutionary Warfare are the highlights im. I hope he works with Alchemist more, cuz their styles really go nicely together

Garbage album. Get Down, The Cross, Made You Look are the only songs i like on the album.

for everything good about it, something takes a little away... for instance, get down is a great track, but the beat is exactly the same as ice t's you played yourself... the track with alicia keys was a great idea and for the most part it's good, but the chorus is just horrible... etc etc... nas' delivery on this album is probably the best and most consistent from him though... just a shame that some of the tracks get a bit boring...

I loved da 1st 4 opening tracks my favourite after illmatic. Get down, made you look and last real n***a alive are just straight ablsolute dope 3 of my favourite Nas songs and carry da cross isnt far behind. Da lbum drops a lot after dat with only a few good songs. Overall 7/10

One of my favorite nas albums. 8/10

With tracks like get down, the cross, revolutionary warfare, made you look, mastermind, its just a nasty ass release.

last real nigga alive is my favourite track on gods son, got a hypnotic beat, especially cranked with a good subwoofer, i dont like thugz mansion on principle of everyone on pacs dick since he died, for every good track on this cut theres a weak one, 7/10

I forgot to say that i like I Can song on God's Son album because Nas made a positive song about the black youth can be whatever job profession they wanna do. I commend Nas for making a song like that because most rappers today aren't making positive songs like that for the black youth telling them they can be a doctor, lawyer, engineer, car mechanic rather than a rapper, pro athlete, stripper/prostitute, drug dealer.

Co sign.

Also, I Can and Book of Rhymes.

Great LP and often is overshadowed by Illmatic and Stillmatic... this is a slept on and unsung album.

U should listen to God's Stepson ( God's Son with 9th Wonder beats ) ....the only problem is that its censured, but the beats are hot

i listened to the shit again and revise my opinion. there are a few beats i dont like but the rest are some of the best nas beats imo, esp. the alchemist shit.
3rd best nas album. 8.5/10
