Best Album of the Year,
This review is from: Street's Disciple (Audio CD)
2 Pac. Biggie. Jay-Z. Eminem. These are some of the biggest names in hip hop but not one of these artists comes close to Mr Nasir Jones otherwise known as Nas. He has delivered the best album of all time in 'Illmatic' and since then many thought he has been on a downward spiral until 'Stillmatic' dropped and restored some faith in him. He then delivered one of the tightest LPs of 2002 in 'God's Son' and reassured the world that Nas was back to his best and was ready to be king of New York once again. 'Streets Disciple' goes one step further and he truly has unveiled a classic LP.
In this album Nas takes it back to the streets and in a year where almost all hip hop's big names have been churning out radio-friendly songs in order to get more exposure and airplay, Nas keeps it real and shows what true hip hop is all about. Forget Encore, forget The Black Album, these albums are garbage in comparison. This is without doubt the best album of the year, and not only this but it is a double CD, what more could we ask for...2 Nas CDs for the price of one! I can't ever remember a double CD being this good.
It is hard to say which CD is better as they are both so good, but some of the best songs include 'Nazareth Savage', 'UBR'and 'Live Now' but there are too many to mention. In 'Suicide Bounce' Nas teams up with Busta Rhymes and delivers one of the best verses I have heard in a long time. If you like real hip hop you must buy this album, Nas is the best lyricist the game has ever seen and his lyrics in this album are up there with if not better than those in 'Illmatic', the beats are fresh and unique, his flow is consistently amazing and Nas remains the one artist who can send shivers down my spine just listening to him. 10/10
