I don't really consider any of those albums I've heard up there to be bad

They just don't live up to what those artists are capable of..

Lasers is really pushing that line for me.. that production was really bad to me...

I listen to Kingdom Come occasionally, I genuinely like that album.. I play about 4-5 off Nastradamus

And Year Of The Dog gave us Blown Away:wow:

That reminds me, I need to add that to my playlist:wow:

Blueprint 3 is horrible, Kingdom come and Magna Carta average, Nastradamus is Nas only bad album, every other one is above average, Streets Disciole can be argued either way.

Styles P doesn’t have a bad release.

Whereas Nastradamus was wack but we got dope features during that time AND he dropped Stillmatic immediately afterward.


stillmatic came out more than 2 years after nastradamus.

nas was dead in the water.

i remember "hip-hop is dead" being trash.

street's disciple is a double album full of averageness. the audacity of him making a double cd out of that, just makes it trash off of GP.

i guess we're not grading "distant relatives".

At that moment in time I did somewhat enjoy lasers for what it was, but I haven’t gone back to that album since that year it came out.
Funny fact, I have yet to listen to kingdom come in it’s entirety simply because I despise, “Show me what you got” so much. Lost ones and The prelude are the only other songs I’ve heard.

An album not on this list that is bad, but I enjoyed is

Hip Hop is dead is far from trash, it has couple average songs a lot of good ones. I think people forget it’s a concept album, and these two songs are some of the best in his catalog.

LOX first album is really good outside of can I get jiggy and that song puff is featured on
Animal Ambition had some of the worst beats I ever heard in my life
Firm album ain't that bad, but I don't think any of those artists can gel together in a group
Lasers would've been great if Atlantic didn't take control of it
No Mercy was rushed
