I know there's been a couple of Nas threads here recently but I think this one deserves it's own also. The original unreleased 2CD of Nas "I Am..." is something that's really been interesting me, since from what i've heard would be his 3rd classic album in a row. Let's discus about it, talk what we know about it and also I will post the original 13-track advance that got leaked as soon as i get time. The tracklist for that was:

01 - Fetus
02 - Small World
03 - Project Windows (original)
04 - Poppa Was a Player
05 - Dr. Knockboot's Do's & Dont's
06 - Stay Scheamin
07 - Sometimes I Wonder
08 - Hardest Thing to Do
09 - Wanna Play?
10 - Drunk By Myself
11 - Blaze a 50
12 - Money is My Bitch
13 - We Will Survive

we also know that "Nas is like" was released as the street-single and was part of the original album. one could assume that Nas probably got both of Premier's beats at the same time so NY State of Mind pt.2 might been on there too. The 12" of Hate Me Now had Blaze a 50 on it so both tracks were probably on it also. I've heard Undying Love was supposed to be the end of Disc 1 and Disc 2 would start with a unreleased track called Among Kings. damn, this album should have been great.

also if anybody could upload The Source original 4.5 mic review of "I Am" it would have been really appreciated.

I Am sucked, plain and simple. not as terrible as Nastradamus but it certainly ranks up there as shittiest albums ever (and spare me the "well this song is hot and that song is hot" bullshit)...this album sucks

yeah the original had lots of it and they were autobiographical also. check out "poppa was a playa", "sometimes i wonder", "hardest thing to do is stay alive", "money's my bitch", etc, etc..

apparently whiteboy-- who was, uh... -2 years old when Run DMC first dropped, thus his great "expertise"-- has some issues. that weed laced with something & you still trippin' son or what? AT LEAST get some stoner chick (or dude, whatever's good, homie) to take th edge off for you.

props to the original poster-- Nas is one most of consistenly album oriented dudes out there along w/PE so trying to reconstruct the original is important/interesting.
