Review Summary: A compilation of Nas songs that were supposed to be on previous Nas albums, and an exellent compilation it is

Critical Responses:
Allmusic Rating: 3.5/5
Robert Christagau: B+
Entertainment Weekly: A-
Rolling Stone: 4/5
The Source: 4.5/5
XXL: XXL (5/5)

At the time Nas came out with this album, it was right after Stillmatic came out, so the beef with Jay-Z was still going on, but since this album is a compilation, we didn't get to see any Jay-Z disses on here. Nonetheless, this album contains some of the best songs, and lyrics Nas ever made. Now for the track by track review:

1. Doo Rags: One of the best songs Nas has ever done: 5/5

2. My Way: A classic song: 5/5

3. U Gotta Love It: A classic song: 5/5

4. Nothing Lasts Forever: A classic song: 5/5

5. No Idea's Original: A classic song, with a great beat, that has been sampled in, No Idea's Original by MF Doom: 5/5

6. Blaze A 50: A classic song, with a pretty much self explanatory title: 5/5

7. Everybody's Crazy: A classic song: 5/5

8. Purple: A classic song, one of the best that Nas has ever done, that has been sampled in, High by Jean Grae: 5/5

9. Drunk By Myself: A classic song, that is about being drunk, as you could probably tell by the title: 5/5

10. Black Zombie: A classic song: 5/5

11. Poppa Was A Playa: A classic song, and a great way to end the album: 5/5

Pros:
Lyrics
Beats
Subject Matter

Cons:
None

Overall this get's 5/5, and 10/10, and this is essential to every hip hop fan.

3 Best Songs:
1. Doo Rags
2. Black Zombie
3. No Idea's Original

3 Weakest Songs:
1. Drunk By Myself
2. U Gotta Love It
3. Everybody's Crazy
