5.0 out of 5 stars the saviour of hip-hop, 24 Oct 2006
This review is from: God's Son (Audio CD)
Nas has had one of the most respected careers and has delivered on every album.He is the only rapper to have never sold out and has always remained true to his roots which more than can be said for Jay-z, Eminem, 50 Cent etc.This album is absolute top-drawer hip-hop.Nas cannot be beaten in lyrically by any rapper alive or dead.Unlike most "rappers" today, Nas has a high degree of intelligence which comes through in every song.He doesnt just rap about guns,girls and cars either which is always a bonus.The opening song "Get Down" is a highlight with Jazzy beat to it."Made You Look" is a hip-hop classic with a real raw street sound to it and excellent lyrics."The Cross" is incidentally produced my Eminem but it isnt the best track but Nas still excels over a pretty average beat.The highlight for me is "Book of Rhymes" because he basically just spits awesome verses and then discards them as trash when in fact they are technically better than any verse i have heard from anyone in the past 3 years.Another highlight is "Dance" which is sure to leave a lump in the throat of even the hardest "gangsta" out there in which he raps about his dead mother.However, every track is pure hip-hop its not any crunk bullshit like you hear today.This album shows Nas to be the best of the best and certainly the best rapper who ever lived.
