Default Re: NaS ~ It Was Written

"It Was Written":a classic mafia-rap album,with a young but strong Nas ready to come out with a great second album.Nas' Lyrics are dedicated to the streets,to the crimes,just like a real member of a Family. Sometimes he's a gangster ready for war,sometimes a criminal captured by emotions...Strumentals are full of that italoamerican flavor,that contains guitars and maracas...For the beats Nas chooses his "godfathers" Premier and L.E.S.,but there are new names like legendary Dr.Dre or Trackmasters,too. Collaborations are near the album's theme,so we will listen Mobb Deep or The Firm,crew formed by AZ,Nas Escobar,Foxy Brown and Cormega (in "The Album" Cormega will be changed with Nature).Most beautiful tracks are "Affermative Action","I Gave You Power","If I Ruled The World" (great song featuring Lauryn Hill)...Second opera of the N.Y. rapper is a great noir theatre.Fo' the streets.8,5/10
