We see a post-divorce Nas rise above the frustrations of own money, ex-wife problems, and
half-assed albums of his past. The production is superb and the Amy Winehouse track is
well... conclusively, a really nice touch. Lyrics are as personal as the beats are glorious,
and the result is a newborn Nas laughing it all off with his ex-wife's green wedding dress on
the cover saying "You know what? Fuck it. Life Is Good"
An African-American going on about problems only other African-Americans can relate to. Recommended for: African-Americans, Bored Individuals, Deaf Persons, High Horse Riders, and Illmatic Nostalgia Seekers.
A lot of potential in this album, Nas really brings this one from the heart lyrically but there is just nothing to back it up, long flowless bars, average production and some of the songs feel like he is just speaking straight up. Anyone who has enjoyed Nas albums in the past should give this at least 1 spin, but not much reason to come back to it after that especially when you have albums like Illmatic in his discography that are on another level.
