    Default why does eveyone hate on post-illmatic?

    ok, obviously its the general opinion that illmatic is the best of nas' collection. i agree. but whenever i talk to someone it seems they always say 'oh everything nas has done after illmatic fuckin sucked.."

    granted, there are some bad songs in there, the majority are better than what's passed off as good rap today. some of the lost tapes songs should have gone on god's son instead of the ones on the album.

    also, is nas gonna drop a 50 diss? part of me doesnt want him to cause 50 isnt even on his level but i do wanna hear him destroy 50

    I am,It Was Written, and Stillmatic was hot as fuck to me. Most non-Nas fans won't give those CDs the just due they deserve though idk. There lost i guess lol. Only shitty CD Nas but out was Nastradumas. Street's Disciple and God's Son could of been better though. IMO He got 4 classic CDs. Since 50 isn't on Nas level that might be reason he won't beef wit him but idk.

    truue. streets disciple would have been much better on one disc. i pretty much like all of his cds except nastradamus. streets disciple i dont really care for though.

    The main reason is probably in many listeners' eyes (or ears, in this case), nothing post-Illmatic is even REMOTELY close to Illmatic's level...

    Not me though, I bump Stillmatic and Lost Tapes every now and then.

    To me "I Am" is every bit as good as Illmatic some even like it more than Illmatic.

    In my opinion IT WAS WRITTEN is also a classic..........but to be honest NAS has not put together a great "album" since IT WAS WRITTEN, he has had some killer songs though..........GODS SON came close

    people think that nas fell off because thats what jay-z said in takeover, and people usually take sides with hov cuz mainstream heads dont even know who nas is.

    I dont think NAS has fallen off.....but as far as making consistenly good albums goes.....I dont think NAS has made one since IT WAS WRITTEN where I did not have to continuely hit the fast forward button (besdides LOST TAPES which was awsome).

    like IAM (4-5 great songs), NASTRODAMUS (2-3 great songs on a shit album), STILLMATIC (last 5 songs blow....BRAVEHEART PARTY?), GODS SON ( most consistent album he has made since IT WAS WRITTEN), and STREETS DISCIPLE (alot of great tracks, but alot of filler too).

    That being said, with a NAS album you always know there will be some classic tracks.......but since IT WAS WRITTEN there has always been alot of medicore tracks as well

    Illmatic is hott. Nas can still spit but he can do better hes capable of it.

    And the diss on 50. Nas has actually came out with one lyric wise, I seen it a while back, and damn its nice. (If its the real one which im pretty sure). And 50 is wack by the way lol

    only so called "fans " say bullshit like that. Real heads know where Nas stands. I willing to bet that 99% of heads who say Nas fell off after Illmatic don't own any of his albums
