Was hoping for something pretty sweet just by the Clockwork Orange reference. Was not disappointed. Great review too.

A hip-hop track from 2014 that isn't a trap beat? Sign me up.

He definitely sounds strikingly like Nas at points flow-wise but for some reason I just really feel this isn't him. I found it really interesting that he references the Bulls though, so who knows

Also note that the every other rapper stfu thing does not apply to Black Thought or Push. Maybe Kendrick.

I'm not sold that it's not Nas. The only "proof" has been one article saying "I met Droog" and then a single photograph with the claim that it's the kid.

Right now it's feeling like some Captain Murphy shit.

Yeah that's not proof enough for me either. Iirc nas said it wasn't him but same goes for that. Until he comes out on stage and performs I don't think anyone will be convinced

"A hip-hop track from 2014 that isn't a trap beat? Sign me up."



sigh...



Also, I think this very well could be Nas. Nas not playful? Did you guys listen to Nas and Damian Marley? Anyways, flow? Check. Voice? Check. And the beats sound very reminiscent to NY State of Mind on each track. I think Nutty Bars is my favorite track first time through it.

For real man it's a shame nobody has heard this

Thread will probably blow up tho if Nas comes out and says this is him.

Also, I feel like every point made for or against this being Nas can be flipped to be evidence for the opposite. Or, just as well, refuted. To the point where as much fun as it is to speculate who this is (I'd actually be really happy if this turned out to be Jay Electronica -- and knowing how versatile and talented he is, it's not tooo big of a stretch to think it could be him) it's probably a fruitless endeavor. Oh well. At least it's the tits.
