    I agree. But the bootlegging was the cause of that. I just dont think they selected the best songs for nastradamus. Because the original I am double album is legendary

    Nastradamus was recorded in a rush after the double disc got scrapped from bootlegging.

    Nas I AM came out April 99

    Nastradamus Novermber 99

    I don't like the album but it always made sense to me why it was not great. It was rushed.


    We need a collectors edition I AM double disc for the culture. Maybe the next lost tapes should be those era songs :ohhh:

    The eternal Nas problem. Poor beat selection. Soon as the beat started :snoop:.. I stopped it after the first verse.
