    Default Nas - Untitled (leak)



    01. Queens Get The Money (Produced by Jay Electronica)

    Great opener, Esco drops some intellectual shit over some smooth keys, no drum beat. 4/5

    02. You Can’t Stop Us Now (feat. Eban Thomas of The Stylistics & The Last Poets) (Produced by Salaam Remi)

    Straight fire, cant really say much about the beat, chances are if you're a hip hop head you would have heard the sample atleast once. shits all over RZA's version (the chamber stans aint gonna like this one). 4.5/5

    03. Breathe (Produced by J. Myers & Dustin Moore)

    Some smooth shit, beat gets annoying pretty quickly, as always Nas spits some nice shit over it. 3/5

    04. Make The World Go Round (feat. Chris Brown & The Game) (Co-produced by Cool & Dre & The Game)

    Everyones gonna have mixed opinions on this one, if your one of those only into 90's sounding dudes, your not gonna like this one. Game delivers pretty well but its pretty clear that Esco dumbied him on this one. 3/5

    05. Hero (feat. Keri Hilson) (Produced by Polow Da Don)

    Excellence, this is some hype shit, Polow hooked Nasty up with a sick beat on this one. Esco drops some of the realest shit hes said in a minute on this one, just peep this.

    Forgetting - Nas the only true rebel since the beginning
    Still in musical prison, in jail for the flow
    Try telling Bob Dylan, Bruce, or Billy Joel
    They can't sing what's in their soul
    So untitled it is
    I never change nothin'
    But people remember this
    If Nas can't say it, think about these talented kids
    With new ideas being told what they can and can't spit
    I can't sit and watch it
    So, sh!t, I'ma drop it
    Like it or not
    You ain't gotta cop it
    I'm a hustler in the studio
    Cups of Don Julio
    No matter what the CD called
    I'm unbeatable, y'all

    4.5/5

    06. America (Produced by Stargate)

    Another banger, dude sounds hungry as fuck on this one, you can tell he switches up his voice for this to make the delivery extra cold. BEat is mad smooth too, im likin the vocals from that chick.

    4.5/5

    07. Sly Fox (Produced by stic.man of Dead Prez)

    This shit thumps HAAAARD, stic.man pulled through, another hype ass track makes me wanna get wild. Esco's flow has shaped up a little bit for this, dudes on some Dead Prez shit. 4/5

    08. Testify (Produced by Mark Batson)

    Mood changes up a bit here and the CD's slowed down a notch, esco switches to a lazy flow thats really easy to follow and listen too. doesnt stand out too much too me. 3/5

    09. N.I.G.G.E.R. (The Slave And The Master) (Produced by DJ Toomp)

    Beat for the most part is nice, drums could use some major work, tinny ass snare/clap shit.
    lyrics come through right again, track flows real nice, esco shows that he still got it for sure. 4/5


    10. Untitled / Louis Farrakhan (Produced by stic.man of Dead Prez)

    this ones mad nice, tempos sped up a bit for this one, stic.man pulls through yet again. doesnt exactly stick out but still for sure a nice joint. 3.5/5

    11. Fried Chicken (feat. Busta Rhymes) (Produced by Mark Ronson)

    This ones absolute beauty, I dunno who this Mark Ronson cat is but damn homie can make a mean beat. The worldplay from both nas & busta is just fantastic, keep your ears open on this one and your gonna catch up on some sick darts. 4.5/5

    12. Project Roach (feat. The Last Poets) (Produced by Eric Hudson)

    Practically a skit, not much to be said here, features a short verse from esco. not gonna rate this one

    13. Ya’ll My Niggas (Produced by J. Myers)

    Another banger, the beat builds up mad nice, gets a little repetative towards the end though. Hook is especially nice, that wooshy synth solo. As expected Nas just breathes fire over this (dunno how many times Ive repeated this). 4/5

    14. We’re Not Alone (feat. Mykel) (Produced by stic.man of Dead Prez)

    This track is deep, stic.mans on a roll here, 3 solid bangers, brings his signature jazzy keys on this one. Dude singings got a nice voice and is mad easy to listen too, Esco treats this one well. Rating would be a bit higher with a little less singing 3.5/5

    b15. Black President (feat. Johnny Polygon) (Produced by DJ Green Lantern)

    Meh, im really not feelin this one, beat sounds like some Fruity Loops version 2 shit, snares are just really tinny and fake sounding. as usual nas delivers. Your opinion may severly differ than mine but Im just not feelin this one. 2.5/5

    Overall: 53/70 - 7.5/10

    Im gonna call this one level with It Was Written & Stillmatic, Ill definately be bumpin this one for a while. Nasty is relevant once again!

    My review is broken down into track by track, even a couple poor songs can affect the average quite severly and then there are tracks on here that are easily some of Nasty's best. Another reason this album is so good is its timing and relevance, shit couldnt have come at a better time.

    surprising me so far. actually pretty decent. better than the past couple for sure.
    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

    People are too stupid to effectively conspire to do anything, but not too stupid to come up with conspiracy theories.

    At the moment it's a 7 for me but if the replay value is good then I'll bump it up to an 8. So far I haven't skipped a track while playing.


    So many bodies on my microphone the shit's haunted

    i only listened to it a few times and i luv it. i can tell this album has a lot of replay value and will eventually go down as a classic. I'm hella suprised at how good this album is. It got everything from soft shit, pump up shit, deep shit, poetic shit, political shit, rnb shit....its THA SHIT basically.

    I just felt the need to skip from the middle of "Breath" to "Sly Fox"......that sucks.


    Sly fox is one of my favorite tracks now , second to Project Roach and Untitled.


    BEST TRACK ON THE ALBUM IS TESTIFY.
