just as good as illmatic? hell no.

It Was Written, I Am, and Nastradamus are all more mainstream, his other albums were on a truer level of Hiphop.

because i lied i downloaded ityou're a dick man, go buy the album. you newjacks have no idea what it's like to paydues. rap makes no money, people got kids to feed. If the music is CLASSIC, then you desverve to pay for it, plus the feelin of owning it is nice. and online you can download some fake/fucked up shit sometimes. i think it's cool to download to peep if you wanna buy, but you should def give back to the artists to keep this dying culture alive. when you don't support the non-mainstream labels they get crushed. we needa unite man, think more collectivly for the sake of hiphop.

^ word

It Was Written is kinda boring beatwise, but Nas is great on it. The Message and I Gave You Power are 2 certified classics, but Nas is Coming is wack.

8/10 overall

WORD. I also hate it when people have downloaded shit from artists and consider themselves fans. That shit does not qualify in my opinion.

Not as good as Illmatic but I like it, my top tunes on the album are the message, affirmative action, take it in blood and if i ruled the world. 8/10

you are an idiot. ok, i did exagerate the quality of it was written but if illmatic is 5 mics the iww is 4.5.

but to say that it is mainstream is just stupid. and if you are trying to say that it is more mainstream then illmatic? isnt that kind of obvious, and why is that automatically a bad thing.

On the real, if all nas fans were dick sucker downloaders like you then he might not be able to feed his family. I know sure as fuck nas isn't making music for any douchebag downloaders like ya self

i enjoy nas' shit but i'm not supporting him as a fan when the guy lacks the ability to use it well spent, seriously look at the shit he puts it into, the guy spent like half the money from his last album on a 2 million dollar neptunes beat and with that aside, worthless shit like the bravehearts and ill will records

i'd rather buy a jay-z cd seeing that jay can actually use his profits wisely

The guy made it from the projects to being rich. You shouldn't be a fan of a rapper based on how they use their money. Thats fucked up if you ask me...

Thats fucked up if you ask me...well i'm just not really a fan, i own illmatic, but i'm not gonna contribute funds for another street's disciple, until he really gets things back on track, i won't be supporting him as a fan nor a customer

Btw That Whole Story About Nas Paying 2 Mill For A Neptunes Beat Isn't Even True.
I Read It On All Hiphop.com That It's All A Rumor....

no that is fucked up that you only like someone based on that reason, especially since he gave us Illmatic, It Was Written, Lost Tapes, Stillmatic, God's Son, and numerous released/unreleased tracks that are classic

and Street's Disciple is a decent album, not classic, decent


you're a fairweather fan
