Worst album by a goat
Magna Carter by Jigga, imo. Damn that album is trash
Magna Carter look like Reasonable Doubt compared to Nasir
No way. Both trash to me tho regardless, lol, I give Nasir the pass because it's only like 25 minutes.
Yeah I love her album. Even if she doesn’t. She also got screwed in this process
It's a decent album. A few of the songs have very weak lyrics and it was obviously rushed but the moments when it comes together are dope.
It was an experiment for Nas. Usually he works on his albums for months or years and picks beats from various producers but this time the turnaround was much shorter and he left the direction up to Kanye. About half the time the experiment works, the other half it doesn't. I think the production here is much more interesting than the generic shyt he's often used historically, but sometimes his bars and flow let him down ('Not For Radio' and 'Everything' are laughable factually and philosophically).
I understand she's an artist but it's the best work she's ever put out. She sounds amazing filtered through Kanye's production. Made me check out her older shyt and I can't listen to it.
Just my personal take. Not a dis to her. She's amazing and sexy but she needs Kanye.
fwmykigi is better than anything on Nasir and at least still gets spins by dj’s.
Adam and Eve
He was being facetious on Not For Radio. I don't agree with the anti-vaxxer stuff on the second verse on Everything, but the worst part of that song is not that but actually Kanye's singing which goes on for way too long.
Why? Just why even mention this pile of shyt album a year later
Favorite track- Everything
Although Bonjour is a close second. That shyt would make a CLASSIC video. I almost shelled out some money to make my own fan interpreted video.
Eh. Both albums are overhated in my opinion.
i actually think the album came out a classic
i believe everyone thought it would be 10 "still dreamings"
it just wasnt the album everyone wanted or expected
what makes a nas album for me is three fold;
lyrics are rebel to america
concepts are what up kid
beats are turn the bass up
if he hits these nodes then i am happy as a listener and for nas he has been very consistent since his first album
this is just another chapter in his legacy and i find this album to be what pusha or kanye said it was "all of nas best moments"
not songs; moments. i find every song to be a nod to nas best moments post it was written.
radio / streets disciple
cops / godson
white / i am
bonjour / hiphop is dead
everything / life is good
simple / stillmatic
adam / lost tapes
end of the day its all opinions and i respect someone explaining they position
NASIR as a release was an experiment; its creation process was the opposite of nas usual creation cycle
it was created under a tight time constraint as opposed to the usual
album wouldve sounded better if the mixing/mastering was better. some of the songs sound "undone" or have to be nudged/cut etc.
at the end of the day i dont care about static or demos or any of that shyt; i actually love it if the music is good
