you sure we aren't all getting a little too excited about this?

I mean, I can't count a few times I heard 3 songs before an album came out and those ended up being the only ones worth a damn. Iunno man, I just unno

My avg rating of Nas after 10 albums (including the Damian Marley collab) is probably around a 4 so I think I'm justified to have big expectations.

to be fair the article is probably accurate

top tier album for nas' career isn't saying that much

Storm In A Teacup

@illmitch Okay I'll be serious right now...I don't consider that a proper definition because I don't believe in objectivity. I could take away the "top tier" portion of the article, but all it says is the possibility this album would be one of his best not the best and it indicates there is always the possibility it wouldn't be one of his best. People are opinionated. Any culture is opinionated. Someone's opinion is a part of who they are as an individual and there is no correct way of behavior or decision-making to accuse someone of being objective. I really don't feel like explaining this further and having to give examples, but if I have to try and get the point across that's fine.

and to deviant and uhkris: I don't care what you think. I don't know why you would have a negative opinion on me maybe just because I like to give asinine comments or responses most of the time so that it confuses people but it really doesn't matter to me. I'm here to learn about new music and keep a track of ratings first and then reviews and comments second. I've done a lot of reviews and make a lot of comments during the periods I actually am doing those things on the site because guess what? I never left the site for a single day and no user here has any good reason to talk sh!t to me because that's just petty and sad. So feel free to respond but also feel free to kiss my ass because either way doesn't change how anything is.

you wrote that the presence of three singles which you apparently like means that this will be a "top tier record" for nas' career

are you retarded

Storm In A Teacup

It's not based off me liking them. I don't like "Daughters". It's about what I've seen people saying on the internet for the most part and what Nas has said. He said there's a lot of stuff from his past albums, mainly Untitled that when he went back and listened after a time he didn't see some as quality music for someone to want to listen to repeatedly and that's the mindset he went in for making Life Is Good and to show he's not in the same place as he has been for any of his previous records.

Well it lets you know what the three singles are so someone can listen to one or all of them and they can decide for themselves if they're interested in the album or not. I assume people can make their own opinion but anywho I'm letting people know what the release date is, what the artwork is, what the tracklist is, and what the three songs that could be found streaming are titled. It's just one little portion of a sentence that isn't even a blaring opinion lol.

guys stop being dicks, you really are getting too worked up over this stuff

but anyway, I'm holding out mild excitement over this and honestly I don't give two shits about Nas' career or even Illmatic but from what I've heard/seen this might be really good. Also really happy that 40 is co-producing a track on this.

and the Accidental Murderers track was recently released and it's hot af. Rick Ross almost murks Nas on his own shit tbh.

I don't see how. There's the correctional officer thing but he never fucked anyone over in the industry and he's only really helped careers and been pretty cool as an actual person.

"how do you rap about being a gangsta when you used to be a correctional officer. starting beef with kreayshawn is lol to."

there are plenty of corrupt CO's who'd move weight, it's not the same thing as being a police officer. The main thing I don't like about it is that he originally denied being one. And anyway the ppl in NWA and Mobb Deep lied about being hardass thugs when the worst they've probably ever done is sell a gram of weed for their friends.

Yeah dude that avy is not swag.

Like gabe said, but imo I would try Stillmatic first, then It Was Written second. IF you love thoses another favorite Nas album of mine is his collaboration with Damian Marley called, "Distant Relative". That was prolly my aoty for 2010.
