5.0 out of 5 stars Nas The Resurrection, 2 Mar 2003
By 
This review is from: God's Son (Audio CD)
RELEASING HIS latest album, ‘God’s Son’, Nasir Jones should finally silence his critics, resurrect his once failing career and claim back the crown of New York from commercially driven opponent Jay-Z.
With ‘God’s Son’ Nas has reverted to the street poet so evident in his first two offerings (Illmatic, It was Written), detaching himself from the pop-rap tendencies apparent in his albums ‘I am’ and, more damaging to his career, the market driven Nastradamus.
‘God’s Son’ is a testament to Nas’ talents and his ability to recapture the fans from his first two offerings and draw back the disillusioned fans that tired of his commercially driven antics.
‘God’s Son’, Nas’ sixth album includes the talents of Kelis, Claudette Ortiz (of City High), Alicia Keys, the Brave hearts, and Tupac.
‘God’s Son’ is Nas’ most heartfelt and truthful album to date, focusing largely on his relationship with his mother, such as ‘Dance’ a tribute to his deceased mother.
His songs also contain a message, be it, ‘Dance’, ‘Last real n**** alive’ a tale of the state of hip hop, his career and the reason behind his well publicised beefs, or ‘I Can’ a song preaching the ancestry of African empires, and the European aggression that dominated it.
Nas’ most creative track however must be that of ‘Book of Rhymes’ in which he leafs through his notebooks reading excerpts of verses written throughout his career, some which work, some that fail. However the way in which it is done and some of the rhymes heard illustrates Nas’ lyrical genius making his inspired content unmistakable to the ear.
Also featuring the production talents of Salaam ‘The Chameleon’ Remy, Alchemist, Alicia Keys (‘Warrior Song’) and Eminem (‘The Cross’), and excerpts from songs such as the James Brown track ‘The Boss’ ‘God’s Son’ contains not only excellent lyrical content, but delivered over mesmerising beats where words and beats intertwine to produce Nas’ finest album since Illmatic.
‘God’s Son’ is a must for all hip-hop devotees. The real Nas-‘God’s Son’ has risen and has come back to snatch the New York crown.
