Default Nas - God's Son



1. get down
2. the cross
3. made you look
4. last real nigga alive
5. zone out feat. bravehearts
6. hey nas feat. kelis & claudette ortiz
7. i can
8. book of rhymes
9. thugz mansion (ny) feat. 2pac & j. pheonix
10. mastermind
11. warrior song feat. alicia keys
12. revolutionary warfare feat. lake
13. dance

Ive seen some people say that the beats are boring or whatever but I really like this album. I wanted to see what other people thought cuz Ive seen mixed opinions. Personal it's one of my favourite Nas albums, it was the first one I bought along with I Am but I listened to this a lot more and I still like it now.

8.5/10 for me.

the album wasnt all that imo, too much filler
1. get down (5/5 great classy storytelling, fat beat)
2. the cross (3/5 nas comes good lyrically, but (sighs) is produced by eminem)
3. made you look (5/5 this is real hip hop, classic nas rips it)
4. last real nigga alive (4/5 nas explains about the beef hes been involved with, bland beat takes away from it)
5. zone out feat. bravehearts (5/5 this is pretty fuckin sick, the beat is like backwards or sumthin, even bravehearts have some good verses)
6. hey nas feat. kelis & claudette ortiz (3/5 so so rnb type track)
7. i can (3/5 lyrics are very mature, maybe a little patronising though + boring beat)
8. book of rhymes (5/5 inventive track, nas flicking through his book to get some rhymes, nice alchemist beat)
9. thugz mansion (ny) feat. 2pac & j. pheonix (2/5 never liked this track)
10. mastermind (5/5 classic id say, lyrically incredible)
11. warrior song feat. alicia keys (3/5 another duck ass beat)
12. revolutionary warfare feat. lake (5/5 another classic, lake and nas trade some sick verses over alchemist soulful loop, i read that lakey the kid is actually signed to death row now)
13. dance (4/5 a lotta people seem to like this, its like nas tribute to his mom)
14. heaven (5/5 nas classic, he addresses the world on modern day issues similar vein to 'poison')

I actually like the beat on The Cross. last real nigga alive is a more boring beat but I still like that song.

I also think the chorus on I can is cheesy its not the beat that makes the song bad, its still an ok song tho.

overall I can listen to it all the way thru... dance I find quite boring but I can listen to it... i think this was one of the albums that opened my eyes to more lyrical rapping. a lot of the topics were different to what I was listenin to at the time which was mostly mainstream stuff.

Get Down is one of Nas´ best songs...Salaam Remi has some sick production on this Streets Disciple I think is more solid; but this has better tracks I Can is great lyrically; as is Made You Look (classic); Last Real Nigga Alive and the last two Dance and Heaven are real touching but this isn´t my fav Nas album not even my 4th... ZOne Out should be in the Hague for war crimes

Very solid album by Nas. I think this album is underrated, there are alot of very good songs on this album like:

Thugz Mansion
Get Down
Dance
Heaven

True, solid album. But not banger. I give it 8/10.

every song on this album was either a complete hit or complete miss. dance is also one of the saddest hip hop songs ive heard. 7/10
