Im interesting to see what people opinions are on "i am...", for me it is slightly over looked by fans as a result of some of the weaker tracks included.

Still, in my opinion NaS has some great work on here, and lyrically some of the tracks are really good.

Production wise the album is lacking, as a number of track ruin the flow of the album. "You Won't See Me Tonight" showcases why timbaland isnt as good as everyone likes to think, "Hate My Now", "Ghetto Prisoners" and "I Want to Talk to You" all have weak beats.

however the album has some great production, thanks to premo, and these tracks outshine the majority of the rest of the album. "We Will Survive" is also a very well constructed tribute track.

Great Tracks:
New Yorl State Of Mind Pt. II
NaS is Like
We Will Survive
Undying Love

Decent Tracks
Small World
Life Money Is My Bitch
Is What You Make It


overall, in my opinion, this is a fairly good album, although nothing special. probably better then "God's Son" and definitely better then "NaStradamus".

Production: 6.5

Lyrics: 8

Overall: ~7.5

It's a good album, i slept on it when it came out - people were talking alot of shit about it. I got it just a while ago and it's actually a damn decent release.. I guess people just were dissapointed that all of those classics from the album sampler that leaked wasn't on it.. a couple classics on it though; "Small World", "NY State Of Mind II", "Nas Is Like" and i actually liked both "Hate Me Now" and even "You Won't See Me Tonight".. it had weak points though.

Almost classic 9/10
your choises are a bit.. strange?? like giving maybe the 2 best tracks on the album the lowest ratings?? The album is far away from a classic, the label fucked it up.. alot of dopeness was reduced from this album like "fetus", "hardest thing", "poppa was a playa", etc.. anyway;

1. intro
2. n.y. state of mind (5/5)
3. hate me now (3.5/5)
4. small world (5/5)
5. favor for a favor (3/5)
6. we will survive (3.5/5)
7. ghetto prisoners (3/5)
8. you won't see me tonight (3.5/5)
9. i want to talk to you (4/5)
10. dr. knockboot (4/5)
11. life is what you make it (4/5)
12. big things (3/5)
13. nas is like (5/5)
14. k-i-s-s-in-g (3/5)
15. money is my bitch (4/5)
16. undying love (4/5)

i'll give the album 3.5/5 (or 7/10 if you wish).. lyrically it's a 9.5 but production takes away alot from the album.
