True story....dude is the nicest cat ever man...even tho not all of his albums are great, his lyrics are always precise..concepts, stories...Everyone knows what ether did to Jay, as far as Cam...well..his on crew pulled his card so thats a non issue. And he carries himself accordingly..where the Nas haters at??

nas is one of the best

but i got annoyed with a title called "Hip hop is dead"
When u give a album that kind of a title it is like making history ..
I was expecting something to blow me away , but it was just a regular album.
Im just saying the title makes the album sound godlike.

nas on a dope beat is nice as hell. just seems like he has a problem getting a whole album with dope beats. he dissapoints because i think everyone knows he can make an illmatic everytime he touchs a mic, but he just doesn't.

Have you been paying attention?.....most people don't think Nas has dropped off on a lyrical level they just think his choice of beats are wack for the most part and don't blend well with each other.

Next time you might want to read the threads properly before opening another thread just to rant.

^^ lol nuff said ... i am, it was written, nastradamus had trashy beats, stillmatic was meh, streets disciple was a fall off compared to gods son, and hip hop is dead should of topped illmatic with a title like that, but for me it didnt top gods son ... lyrically he always been good just production wise he's failed, tryna blend commercialised shit into raw shit and getting some confused results ...

it was written???!!1 trashy beats? maybe one or two but for the most part the beats were pretty nice, especially the hav and premier beats, and affirmative action...

gods son > it was written

edit ... and i liked HHID aswell ... but like someone else mentioned, its titled is making a very bold statement, and nas proclaiming hes the saviour of rap had to do shit that was better than illmatic and anything less would be - and was - a failure ... gods son > HHID

^^Yea I get wat u sayin. The hype for this shit was huge, & it was a decent album. It just didnt live up to people's expectations.

haha, you have to be fucking kidding me.

"It Was Written" has consistent dope beats, with one bad track. its almost as good as "Illmatic", it amazes me that people can dislike it, its a perfect follow up to "illmatic" for me...

its all opinion, gods son is nas' 2nd best drop in terms of overall consistancy imo, it gets shitted on too much ...

yeah its on par for me,

next would be "Lost Tapes", "I Am" and "Gods Son" would have been great if all that shit with the leaking and stuff didnt happen.

The first 4 songs of Gods Son are fuckin dope, my favourite opening 4 tracks of any Nas album i think, its in par with Illmatic anyways. I think the album kinda fell off a bit after that

what is your problem seriously, stop being such a bitch, i didnt "flame" you.

i havent ranked it at all, i just said it would have been a great album if it wasnt for all the shit that happened around the release. here i'll rank nas' albums for you.

1. Illmatic
2. It Was Written
3. Lost tapes
4. Stillmatic
5. Street's Deciple
6. I Am
7. God's Son
8. Nastradamus

ive only heard part of HHID, beats werent great, but i dont think i could rank it.

Illmatic will always be Nas' best album.

That is all.

It Was Written didn't have any trashy beats, now Nastradamus did w/ the exception of the Premo cuts........

its not that, but do you like mobb deep, ob4cl, illmatic etc?

cause for me "It Was Written" was a continuation of that, if your a nas fan i just cant see how it is trashy.

It was written is a dope album, end off.

this thread wasn't an add on from anything I seen here homie. I really born this off the strength of the Nas haters I used to see at AHH. I agree with beats philosophy and that he puts out sub par work some thimes...

co/sign that. "Made You Look" buries most emcee's entire albums these days. i really didn't like Stillmatic at all for a long time but after enough spins it's become one of my favs along with Lost Tapes and Illmatic.
