Not that many good songs.
on 22 December 2003
Nas is seen as one of the best rappers out there at the moment and so you'd expect his albums to be really good all the way through.
This album is good, dont get me wrong, but there are several weak tracks that let the side down, which are boring, pointless and at times cringeworthy (see KISSING). Appearances from legends like Scarface, DMX and Aaliyah can't save this from being under the expectations.
The best 5 songs on this album are:
NY State of Mind Pt.2
Favor for a Favor
We Will Survive
Nas is Like
There are some classic songs here, notably Nas is Like, but you should only really buy this album after you've got God's Son and Illmatic, which are both much better.
