    Default your opinion of Nas

    i know a lot of fans of the wu-tang clan have equal love for Nas, but almost just as many decry him for allegedly 'falling off' after illmatic, it was written, i am, or whatever....i'm one of those who believes that not only did Nas never fall off, but he is one of the greatest MCs ever to bless the genre of hip-hop. from 94-97, he was perfectly flawless, and yes, by that i'm saying it was written was an album lacking in any missteps, on par with illmatic, in my opinion. that preceding statement will probably obliterate any credibility on my part, but even after it was written, nas was fairly consistent. i am... is another great work, coming right before nastradamus, probably the worst cd in the Nas catologue. but even here, in the supposed low point of his career, Nas has more highlights than stretch marks. every album after that has been solid, tight, and cohesive. he still brings quality music to the table, even if he doesn't always brandish that edge that we like to characterize as 'Nasty Nas'. anyways, speak your opinions and thoughts....

    the dude got skills and will always have my respect
    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)

    fuck another NAS thread.........

    ........ILLMATIC =classic, IT WAS WRITTEN=CLASSIC (underrated)...........after these albums NAS albums were really inconsistent, like there were dope tracks on I AM, NASTRADAMUS, STILLMATIC, etc.........but alot of garbage fast forward tracks on these albums

    I think GODS SON, and STREETS DISCIPLE were good steps forward, but again these albums had some medicore tracks as well.

    yeah before I Am, i cant find any Nas cut that i dont like. but from I Am to the present day, i can probably list about 6 or 7 songs that i detest. but that's to be expected...he had to come down to earth sometime. and for him to have more albums than bad songs is quite an accomplishment, in more ways than one.

    nas is an incredible lyricist. i like all of his albums but its true that on some of the later ones you have to skip a few tracks. i really hope the next one he puts out kills it
