    I use to think this album was slightly underrated, but now im starting to think it's overrated.

    I'd barely give it 8/10. really good album though, but some of the tracks wasn't all that.. "the message", "i gave you power" and "shootouts" is some of nas dopest though. i just didn't like how all of a sudden he was this large gangster/killer.. it doesn't feel real, although the flow and wordplay is purely amazing!

    1. Album Intro
    2. The Message-Sick as hell, one of my favorite songs of all time, the beat was beyond perfect as a way to open an album, it has the illmatic vibe to it, but more polished. Lyrically it's insane too the vividness of the gun fight is beyond comprehension.10/10
    3. Street Dreams- GREAT song, dope uptempo beat that sounds like vegas, which is dope that they used vegas as the setting for the video 10/10
    4. I Gave You Power- Probably one of the best stories ever told in rap. To rap AS a gun.. whoa. This song was revolutionary 10/10
    5. Watch Dem Niggas- Dope ass song, grimey chorus the line "I have no game its just some bitches understand my story" is tooooo fucking real. Lyrically it's nas at his best, the beat is taylor made for him 10/10
    6. Take it in Blood-Whoa.......what the fuck im i gonna say about this song that'll do it justice. Its my favorite nas song ever, i listened to it on repeat for days 11/10
    7. Nas is Coming- dope song, the beat is sicker then the lyrics, idk if that makes sense but oh well. 9/10
    8. Affirmative Action- perfect fam track, Foxy and Az murdered it, i've never sat down to do the math of what foxy's talking about but i've been meaning to.10/10
    9. The Set Up- ha! this songs the shit great story, great energy RAW beat. 10/10
    10. Black Girl Lost- I can't stand this song, it's too jiggy and out of nowhere 7/10
    11. Suspect- favorite chorus ever 10/10
    12. Shootouts- dope song, raw beat but gets old FAST and makes you not wanna listen to it again because for some reason it feels like it drags on for days 8/10
    13. Live Nigga Rap- basement DANK. Songs grimier then soap scum. The beat is unforgiving, it sounds like they're tightly confined in a stair case and everyones just wildin out 10/10
    14. If I Ruled the World- one of nas's greatest songs. not a personal favorite but theres no problems with it what so ever so it's perfect 10/10.
    * Silent Murder-
    hearing it for the first time now, so i'll review later if i feel like it
