Are the words of one Mr Nasir Jones porclaims at the end of Disciple (CD1 track 6).
Hip hop is expanding at such a phenomenal rate that for us 'older godz', we feel a lil fearful about our precious child. We watchd the Goldern Era of '88 - '91 and again from '94 - '98. But then came the new era! Ja Rule, Jigga Man was running tings, Wu was falling off, and Nas, well, Nas had chosen the image over the substance.
Have i lost you? Well pay attention to the Teacher as I explain: Illmatic was and still as a banger! then Nas dropped It Was Written. This was a 'nice' albutm, but for those fans of Nas and Illmatic, we expected more...but that expectation never materialized. Fastforward now to Nas' Stillmatic, and God's Son. The enigmatic, lucid, intelligent rapper has emerged as not just a prophet of hiphop, but now with Streets, he hasbeen crowned the Messiah!
This is not a far cry from what Nas has been alludibng to thruout the years. Using Egyptian iconagraphy, Hebrew deity, Christian mystery and now Catholic imagery, he has presented him self as the 'God' of hiphop.
Streets, utilises everything brilliant about the music/artform to propel the artist into a strtaosphere where he resides on his own. If i was to tell you to listen to 'Mesage to the Feds..' or 'Live Now' or even 'Suicide Bounce', you would have totally missed what hiphop is about. Nas has reminded fans of 21st century hiphop that albums aren't just conduits for their singles (a la 50 cent), but they are an entity of their own and should be enjoyed in its entirety!
Nas is King! If u haven't realised this, then u neva will!!

Street's Disciple is another classic from Nas, returning to his influences from the 'golden era' hip hop of the late 80's, streets disciple is an oldschool meets new school masterpiece mixing all types of genres. This blend of genre is most notable on the track "bridging the gap" featuring his father Olu Dara, in which Nas blends blues, jazz, soul and hip hop and creates a musical journey in which all music fans can appreciate. Other stand out tracks include the single "Theifs Theme" in which Nas speaks on his old life in the projects of queensbridge over the backdrop of a hypnotising Sallam Remi instrumental. "Nazareth Savage" is another stand out track on the album and arguably one of nas' best verses to date. The only criticism of the album is that Nas falls too deeply into making songs about his past life in the projects which creates the impression that Nas is trying to create another 'Illmatic' rather than moving forward with his music. But essentially, it is the reminiscant illmatic style songs that have made Streets Disciple a great album, so by looking backward to his roots, Nas may have moved forward to that next level that we all have been waiting for since 1994's masterpiece Illmatic.

Short and to the point. This is grown up music. You either going to really love this album or like a lot of people that don't really listen to the lyrics you're going to hate it. This is probably the closest thing rap is going to ever have to a Bob Dylan type of figure. He is the greatest Mc to ever hold a mic. This album shows the growth as a writer and as a person. This album isn't like any of his other album which makes it so great, he has done this consistenty, he never gives the same thing twice, unlike some other camel nosed rappers that go with a formula and are to concerned with selling records that they sacrifice creativity for the sales. But getting back to this album you have to sit down and listen to the album, take for what it is, great music.

Nas is one of the greatest rappers of all time. Street's deciple is as important if not more important than Illmatic when it came back over a decade ago. I say this because hip hop is in a bit of a state at the mo with it's commercialisation - Illmatic changed the game and i hope this jerks other artists into moving back in the same direction of hiphop. This is the hip hop album of the year and one of the best albums in hip hop history (if not the best!) - honestly its that good - Its got everything - beats, lyrics, phrophecy, intelligence, crunk - the most complete hip hop album ive ever heard - JUST BUY IT - Definitive Album - Nas is currently the king!!!!!

Rarely do I label something classic on first inspection, but I can confidently say so with this joint.
Not to mention several songs left out ("serious" and "Good Morning) which I hope will find themselves on 'Lost Tapes 2'.
A true artist!!

Nas is without a doubt the most talented rapper alive, and is definately up there with the greatest hiphop artists ever. That's why so much hype surrounded this album, and it's without a doubt worth the wait.
It's a double album, with each disc having it's own individual feel to it. CD One is quite political, and on tracks like the Kelis assisted 'American Way' he says exactly what he feels about the government. 'Nazareth Savage' contains some of the tightest lyrics ever spoken by Nas on record, and no Nas album would be complete without a dig at someone, and Kobe Bryant gets his treatment on 'These Are Our Heroes'. Nas also teams up with a brilliant female rapper Scarlett on tracks 'Sekhou Story' and 'Live Now'- two excellent tracks that link together.
CD Two has a more personal feel to it. It starts with a blast-'Suicide Bounce' featuring Busta Rhymes, and later he teams up with Ludacris for the brilliant 'Virgo'. Despite these high-profile guest rappers, none can match up to the flow that Nas shows on the album. This CD also contains the two singles 'Thieves Theme' and 'Bridging the Gap', and the highlight of the album 'War'- a very personal track with a strong chorus from Keon Brice.
CD One is Nas at his absolute lyrical best, and Nas fans will slightly prefer this CD to the second one for the lyrical skill shown. CD Two is still excellent and more emphasis is placed on the beats, even thought the lyrics are still amazing. The only two let-down tracks feature on CD2, which are 'No-one else in the room' and 'Me and You', but they're not awful and do not in any way damage an absolutely superb album.
Definately the greatest hiphop album brought out in recent years, and an absolute must-have for any hiphop fan!
