  • @LeoReis92 It Was Written
  • Now that you mentioned... I've listened to Illmatic and really liked it, to what album should I go next?
  • I love Illmatic as much as the next guy, but to many people act like he hasn't done shit since. Which is sad.
  • Life Is Good is the best I've heard Nas sound since "God's Son". I like Street's Desciple, has a lot of gems and some of his best songs (Message To The Feds, Bridging The Gap, Just A Moment, War, Thief's Theme, American Way, etc.), just some filler dragged it down. I thoroughly enjoy "Hip Hop Is Dead", I see it as one of his more overlooked projects. "Untitled" was meh, had some good tracks but felt very uninspired and run of the Mill. He got a lot better with "Distant Relatives", but "Life Is Good" was the album I've been waiting a while to hear.
  • I'd take Life Is Good off that list, it's pretty average. [2] On what basis? No I.D. put Nas onto some if not the best production he's ever had. Nas's storytelling game is on point (A Queens Story), Braggadocios Nas is here (The Don), plus we are getting to see a Nas we haven't really seen since Street's Disciple, which is this heart broken/heavily personal Nas. He really aired out his dirty laundry like he never has before. Everything on Life Is Good was great (Besides the terrible attempt at a radio single, "Summer On Smash").
