Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Do we have to compare Nas to Jay-Z? Probably not, but skirmishes between New York’s premier MCs make it difficult for us to stop. Nas’s God’s Son may fall victim to Jay Z’s more polished Blueprint 2 on the battlefront, but as far as Nas releases go, this one's not that bad at all. In fact, there are some striking stand-out selections. "Made You Look" and "Last Real Nigga Alive" (Nas’s inevitable "why Jigga is wack" track) are white hot for the streets, and the Alchemist-produced "Book of Rhymes" showcases the type of witty yet introspective rhymes that Nas fans crave. Still, one can't escape the impression that the album suffers from a bloated track listing and quite a few unnecessary guest appearances, including yet another "collaboration" with the long-dead 2Pac. We also could have done without the tired misogyny of the limited-edition bonus track, "P***y Kills." Oh, and Salaam Remi’s beat on "Zone Out" deserves a doper rhyme than the one it supports. But for the most part, Nas’s flow is on point. --Rebecca Levine

5.0 out of 5 stars Another tight chapter in Nas' "Book Of Rhymes". January 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
With 3 CDs released in a little over a year, Nasir Jones has been very busy. Although, the critically acclaimed "Lost Tapes" were pretty much B Sides from "I Am" and "Stillmatic". After battling Jay Z and reaffirming his spot in the game with "Stillmatic", Nas seems like he is on a different mission this time around. After dealing with the death of his mom, Nas wants to take the mature approach this time around. This is understandable although many artists deal with personal loss in different ways. The CD starts out with "Get Down" and gets things off to a good start as Nas is basically freestyling over old James Brown beats. Eminem then shows up to produce "The Cross" and if you didn't hear Nas' voice, you would be waiting for Eminem or someone from D12 stepping up to rhyme. On Track 3 and 4, you have the best 2 songs on the CD in my opinion. The first single and video from "God's Son", "Made U Look", took a little while to grow on me because of the beat by Salaam Remi. While Nas is always on point with his lyrics, I was not used to hearing him rap to old school hip hop beats with the exception of some of his freestyles on mixed CDs. On "Last Real N**** Alive", Nas tells the truth about his dealings with The Notorious BIG, Raekwon, Steve Stoute and the Jiggaman himself. "Zone Out" includes a "sick" beat by Salaam Remmi and the Braveharts and Nas sound like they transformed back to "Beat Street" and "Krush Groove" for a minute as they spit 80s type rhymes. On "Hey Nas", Nas employs Claudette Ortiz from City High and his boo, Kelis, for Salaam Remi's Trackmasters' beat. I think they were in the studio somewhere when this song was produced. However, Nas does a good job in my opinion, of describing the type of female that he is looking for. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Nas Strikes Gold for the 3rd time this year! December 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
After blessing us with the Near-classics Stillmatic and Lost Tapes any Nas fan this year would've been satisfied if Nas came through with an album at least better than the I am... project. And with rumors of Irv Gotti being caught in the mix of this album Nas' fans were shaking in their boots hoping they wouldn't get another nastradamus. But Nas has given us yet another banger to add to his amazing catalogue of hiphop music with God's Son.
Nas recaptures the funk of the Mid 80's with tracks like the James Brown inspired storytelling track "Get Down" which features none other than a brilliant breakdown of the beat in the middle of the Song. "Mastermind" comes with that classic 80's feel along with the street banga "Made U Look." Nas also brings back his Slick Rick impersonation on his 2002 version of "Hey Young World" with "I Can" while not as good as it's predecessor thanks to an annoying chorus the lyrics are really inspiring to youngsters and would make a great single considering that youngsters shouldn't be listening to this album in the first place. The worst track on the album "Zone Out" gives us that public enemy feel but Bravehearts messy flows and a lackluster performance by Nas weigh this track down. Nas easily has enough 80s throwbacks on this album to have any hip-hop head over the age of 21 drooling.
But what makes this Nas album special in it's own right is the amount of heart and soul he put into this cd. This is clearly one of Nas' most personal albums to date. The death of his mom has put that emotion and spirit into his lyrics that non-Nas fans have always demanded of him. "Warrior Song" produced by Alicia keys gives inspiration to those going through tough times and Alicia's voice just seals the deal on the hook.

5.0 out of 5 stars STOP IT, STOP IT, STOP IT!!!! February 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...Stop comparing all of Nas' other albums to Illmatic. When someone makes an album as great as Illmatic, its hard to live up to that again... Anyway, Nas has never made a wack album. NEVER!!! Even Nastradamus had it's high points (ignore the commercial songs "Nastradamus" and "You Owe Me"). God's Son is an exceptional album. It starts off very strong with "Get Down", which is a sample from an old James Brown song. The Eminem-produced "The Cross" doesn't have the nicest beat you will ever hear, but REAL hip-hop listeners look past the beat and actually listen to the lyrics (woulda been nice if Em had added a verse on there himself though). "Made You Look" was a good single to start out with. "Last Real N---- Alive" may be the best track on the album. At first I didn't like "Zone Out", but after listening to it a few times, it wasn't that bad (quit dissin G-wiz & Jungle, they aint that bad). "Hey Nas" was decent. I never thought I would hear Kelis sing on anything other than a Neptune track but theres a 1st time for everything.
"I Can" is good for the kids. Nas always manages to put one real creative song on each of his albums, and "Book of Rhymes" is the newest edition. I don't need to say anything about "Thugs Mansion" as it speaks for itself. "Mastermind"... good stuff. Alicia Keys... "Warrior Song"... Who knew? "Revolutionary Warfare"... amazing. I won't comment on "Dance". It's a dedication song. Everyone needs those. And finally... "Heaven"... didn't really like the singing in it. But the flow is nice. Overall. Very good album.
