definitely checking for this.. nice to see 9th Wonder made it, though i had hoped Large Pro would be on there since Nas was talking about that.

although all the nas hate and bashing has been funny to see and i've participated to a certain extent, it will be classic to see what happens when he and bob marley's son release the album of the decade

i just don't know how people will take it

^^^co-sign, it's been too long since he had anything out

i like that the features are minimal and the production is mostly handled by damian
this should be "cohesive" and well thought out

14. Black Man’s Paper feat. Erykah Badu (prod. Afry) [UK Bonus]
15. Weed On feat. Snoop Dogg (prod. Damian Marley) [iTunes Bonus]

damn it though

and joss stone? so which one of them was banging her? (and that's not random misogynistic comment, dallas austin and i think raphael saadiq said she's an industry whore lol)

I get excited everytime NAS drops an album....

When the album drops I am always dissapointed.....

NAS has not put out a great album since IT WAS WRITTEN....

I like Damien Marley.....not sure if I like the sounds of NAS + Damien Marley....

WARNING: this album could be mad corny

It was meant to be before Rock the Bells but because Nas is getting royally fucked in the arse by some snake bitch it's been delayed until the 'fourth quarter of 2009'.
