    It has some of Nas' best tracks (the message, i gave you power, affirmative action),but theres also a few songs that arent very good. Overall, I give it 8.5/10

    Great album. The Set Up, Affirmative Action, and The Message are my fav tracks. I can't really compare it with the rest of his catalogue cuz I like every Nas album(even Nastradamus). I'd say a 9/10. peace

    9 out of 10. Watch Dem Niggas, Nas Is Coming and Black Girl Lost suck, but tha rest kicks ass.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

    Nas is coming is a horrible song? This is insane. First of all Dre. Second of all...just read the lyrics

    It was written in my opinion was boderline classic.


    Artist: Nas f/ Dr. Dre
    Album: It Was Written
    Song: Nas is Coming
    Typed by: OHHLA Webmaster DJ Flash

    [Nas] Motherfuckin Dre!
    [Dre] AHHHHHHH!
    [Nas] Whassup my nigga?
    [Dre] Sup NAS?
    [Nas] Chillin God
    [Dre] Niggaz is up in here hittin some of this CHRONIC nigga
    [Nas] Yeah and this chocolate over here
    They mixed this shit up
    [Dre] Nigga hit some of this shit nigga
    [Nas] Yeah, lemme get that
    I'm tired of these niggaz, niggaz stealin beats
    And niggaz is stealin, your whole techniques and shit
    Niggaz wanna take everything from a nigga man
    [Dre] Yeah yeah yo Nas it's like this man
    ("Nas is coming..")
    Niggaz can't do it like I do it, d'yaknahmsayin?
    Just like niggaz can't do what you do
    ("Nas is coming..")
    [Nas] Right, right
    [Dre] You know, can't nobody fuck with this
    ("Nas is coming..")
    You know all these niggaz out here just..
    ("Nas is coming..")
    talkin this East coast West coast bullshit
    Niggaz need to kill that shit
    ("Nas is coming..")
    and make some money, y'know?
    [Nas] WORD!
    ("Nas is coming..")
    [Dre] Fuck it
    [Nas] What is it, what is it God?
    ("Nas is coming..")
    [Dre] Let's get together, make some fuckin music
    [Nas] Right, that's what I'm sayin, that's what I'm sayin
    [Dre] and get PAID, and just.. let that be it
    ("Nas is coming..")
    All these niggaz talkin all this bullshit
    ("Nas is coming..")
    better sit back, and watch what happens
    ("Nas is coming..")

    [Nas]
    The Golden Child chop that ass up, you was holdin out
    Let the streets be the court - and corners hold the trial
    Fatal not fictitious
    I rock the cable 86 shit, foreign cars young with crazy bitches
    Mad smoke makes me able to quote
    Solicitin, ill editions of that Murder I WRote
    A provocative plan, can bring a knot to my hand
    As the pyramids that stand on top of the sand
    In the heat of the moment, like Farrakhan said, we need atonement
    Bulletproof glass, S-classes, chrome kitted up
    Calicones lit it up
    I didn't get touched checking my nuts, I stood up and lit a Dutch
    Clutchin gats quick to bust
    But knowin how these niggaz tattle
    I sneak move get the drop, one shot, without the gun battle
    So when you run the lead travel
    I come through it's taboo
    Ninety-six ways made to clap you

    [Chorus - unknown singers]
    Nas is comin, Nas is comin
    Nas is comin.. (Nasty Nas is comin) Nas is comin
    Nas is comin, Nas is comin
    Nas is comin.. (Nasty Nas is comin) Nas is comin

    [Nas]
    In the black limo, Jack Daniels through the cracked window
    I spot the fake, red dot his face, like a Hindu
    Snatched the symbol, tied his hands too
    Make examples, substantial amounts you owe, to the fam
    Crew, Firm affliation, paper chasin
    Chips glossy, rich Pablo Escabano
    Sophisticado, Blazin hollows like Saddles
    Rap apostle, nacho cheese, I'm Castro
    compared to these niggaz who swear to be real
    but impostors to Hoffa, Nas plague kills
    Countin bills to send to all my jail niggaz who fell
    From New York to L.A., Q.B. to C.P.T. for G.P.
    A hundred G cars, Garcia Vegas cigars
    Kani shit, mad jiggy
    The clout, murder material serial scratched out
    My name's passed out like it's somethin venereal
    but back in stereo

    [Chorus]

    [Nas]
    From childbirth to hearses, flow like the Nile cover surface
    I bit the fruit from the Serpent
    Apocalyptic, get bent, stay splifted
    Control the rap game you got it twisted
    Dr. Dre way the 'Bridge say, shake dice and kiss it
    Sip Crist', push the six with biscuit
    Jeep full of chickens, pull up beside, have a listen y'all, Nas y'all
    Fly gangsta, wavy hair teeth chipped in
    My shit bump, in the courtroom drunk, links truck
    rocky bracelet, cognac kernel never chase it
    Rap hero, black DeNiro
    Federal Bureau, tapped my line and got zero
    Rap pro, diamond roll, hustlin low -
    pro-file, white gold style, rakin bloody dough by the pile
    Shot down, still alive he strugglin for the phone
    Fo'-fo' blow him, when homicide comes, these three words are sung

    [Chorus] - 2X

    [Dr. Dre]
    Check this out
    It's Nasty Nas, and Dr. Dre
    Hahaha, East meets West
    That's how we makin it happen
    That's how it goes down for the nine-six
    Aiyyo Nas let's get this money
    Let's get paid
    Sit back and watch all these motherfuckin clowns out here
    riffin and beefin about this BULLSHIT
    Yo, heh
    While they doin all that
    we just gon' kick back with these honies, this Cristal
    Hah, and party to the year 2G

    [Chorus]

    [Dre - speaking over chorus]
    Hehehe, that's right, that's right
    Yeah, Nasty Nas, Dr. Dre
    Makin it happen

    New Orleans Hornets and New Orleans Saints are the champions.

    Sakk and I must be the only ppl in the world who like Nas is coming. The beat is hard and the lyrics are fire. The only part that sucked was the hook. One of my favorite tracks on IWW. IWW is a dope LP but the production could of be better. IMO that was Nas at his best(lyrically). 8/10

    damn near as good as illmatic IMO.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
