Collecting bootlegs, rarities, and "underground jewels" of the last few years into one tight collection, Nas's The Lost Tapes is intended as a vault-clearing stop-gap between his last work Stillmatic, and his long-awaited sixth album, God's Son. It's also a good way of keeping the name on people's lips: as Nas's war of words with rival New York hip-hop mogul Jay-Z shifts up a gear into a truly tabloid-worthy rap feud, it's clear that the winner is not just going to be the one that drops the best rhyme--it's going to be the one that hogs the column inches.
Those eager for some razor-sharp dissing will have to wait for the next album, however, because much of The Lost Tapes finds Nas in philosophical, reflective mood. "Doo Rags" is a vibrant, romantic vision of street life in the early 80s, Nas rapping of "the drinkers still drinking, and puffing the herb" over nostalgic Stevie Wonder-style piano flourishes, while "My Way" is a proud treatise on empire-building that ignores fatuous boasting in favour of a chronological approach that picks through history in sharp detail. There are dark moments: "Blaze A 50" is a grisly crime thriller set down on disc, while "Everybody's Crazy" fidgets with paranoia. But The Lost Tapes is, most of all, a reminder of this Brooklyn street poet's continuing lyrical excellence. That's a wise move, however you look at it. --Louis Pattison
Top Customer Reviews
Nas keeps his flow and style throught the piece and never misses a beat.
RECOMMENDED FOR NAS FANS.
When i say very good i do mean that - this album is most definitely close behind Illmatic and Stillmatic as Nas's best work - a venerable achievement for such a prolific artist.
The record has a definite "album" feel to it in that the tunes seem to belong together. Catching Nas at his most philisophical, poetic and introspective do not expect to find vehement dis tracks here. It is a collection of street wise true hip hop of the highest order. If you really listen to Lost Tapes you'll understand why Nas is effortlessly the most talented hip hop artist of the last 15 years.
Get it now to compliment and complete your Nas collection - you'll not be dissapointed.
Stand outs for me are - Doo Rags, Blaze a 50 and Purple.
