Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On his third release, I Am, Nas bolsters his reputation as one of hip-hop's leading wordsmiths. His voice has grown so strong that none of the A-list guests (they include Puff Daddy, Aaliyah, Scarface, and DMX) can upstage the 25-year-old rapper. Nas has acted in a movie (Belly), but his real ambition is to write them; until that happens he'll be known for highly cinematic tales of the street. Nas is a lot like a prison-yard bard: he tells crime stories full of blood and guts, but he balances them with strong messages to stop the cycle of violence. His ghetto tales, such as "Small World" and "Favor for a Favor," stress desperation as the cause of crime rather than glorify the nihilistic criminality. Except for one track, "Dr. Knockboot," which casts him as a columnist to the hip-hop lovelorn and playa wannabes, Nas is unremittingly sober on I Am. His righteousness would seem nearly sanctimonious if not underpinned by superb production from the Trackmasters and DJ Premier. The production helps make this a consistent recording throughout, rather than a smattering of hits and misses. --Martin Johnson

Nas ~ I Am...

Customer Reviews

This album is good for anyone that likes rap with good uptight beats, lyrics, and nice flows.
Eduardo Garcia
Nas followed up the classic albums Illmatic and It was Written with what could have turned out to be his best album if it wasn't bootlegged so much.
Anthony Hanes
Hate Me Now is the greates song on the entire album as well as good tracks such as... 2.N.Y.State Of Mind Part.2 4.

This album was slept on by many heads even though it was one of the best (yeah I said it!) album os 1999! The fact is that this is one of Nas' poorer efforts and even still it is better than 99% of the trash that is coming out!

This album made me, a west coast cat cry. I love this album. It is down to earth, and represents the ghetto now a days. Any one, anyone who likes rap must have this album. This will always be one of the greatest albums. Nas's I am... is a very "straight from the ghetto" cd. He remembers Tupac and B.I.G. in We Will Survive. In the best song of the album, I Want To Talk To You, he writes about the ghetto life and how the goverment doesn't give about the ghetto. He ryhmes, "Mr. Mayor, imagine this was your backyard," "Mr. Governor, imagine it's your kids that starve." This album is real, straight lyrics. He raps about love, race and his religon. He really gives you a visual about the N.Y. ghetto. You would think that Dr. Dre got his song Forgot About D.R.E., from Nas's Big Things. This album is everything. There is no way you can hate Nas after you hear one of the songs on this album. If you love Nas or is just into ghetto rap, you can't go wrong with this album.

I wrote a different review so Im hoping the other one wont be shown after this one since Ive changed my opinion about this CD...
Anyway, "I Am" is my favorite album. I wish this one and "It Was Written" would get more credit by Hip Hop fans who claim "Illmatic is the best". I don't see how. I have heard every Nas album and this one is by far.. the best. People just don't understand Escobar because he's more mature and more of a thinker.. unlike nasty. This album is certainly worth the money, so please listen yourself instead of copying people why say illmatic was a "classic" and everything else from Nas is trash.
"I Am" isnt perfection, but it's still ill, in my opinion. The Intro was tight, followed by at least 10 good songs after. "NY state of mind pt 2" which was a sequel to "NY state of mind" from illmatic, tells about life in New York, over a great piano beat. "Hate Me Now" was great.. Puffy or no Puffy. I wasnt concerned with the hook that much anyway, which is all Puffy did. "Small World" is my favorite song EVER, a deep story about two people named Carolyn and Snuk over an obvious non-looped piano beat. "Favor for a favor" had a nice beat, Scarface's lyrics could have been a little more intelligent like Nas' lyrics on the song though. It's gangster material. "We will survive" shows how Nas could have respect for people who didnt even respect him (like 2Pac) as he sent a message to Pac and Biggie Smalls. This song is a lot like Illmatic's "One Love".. anyway, "Ghetto prisoners" was very poetic, I wasnt feelin the beat all that much though. Lyrics were great!
"You Wont See Me Tonight" came after the first block of the album.

Being a fan of Nas, I picked up this album the week it came out. But surprisingly, I discovered that nobody else did. Maybe people lost respect for him after It Was Written? But this is a great album regardless.
All your favorite qualities you'd expect from Nas are on here, like a good storytelling ("Small World"), great lyrical metaphors ("Money Is My B" - I don't know why they even TRIED to play this on the radio), and simple yet dope lyrics ("Ghetto Prisoners", "Nas Is Like"). The obligatory DMX collaboration "Life Is What You Make It" is still great, although it can't compare to when Scarface shows up for "Favor For A Favor". And "Dr. Knockboot" is interesting and funny at the same time.
This is overall a great album, although I seriously could've done without "Undying Love" (well, the chorus, anyway). Also, "K-I-SS-I-N-G" and "You Won't See Me Tonight" with Aaliyah are obviously filler. (By the way, the latter was supposed to be the last single off this album, but instead of releasing it, Nas dished out Nastradamus. Hmmm.)

Nas delivers again with "I Am", almost as hard as he does on his previous two albums. This album is powerful, and there is some filler, but for the most part, Nas just sticks with his incredible knowledge and lays it out for you. "New York State of Mind Pt. 2" was a brilliant start to the album in my opinion. "Hate Me Now" never did much for me, probably because I'm not a big Puffy fan. However, from there, most of the tracks are either real good or great, with some skippable ones in between. "Small World", "Favor for a Favor"(feat. Scarface), "We Will Survive", and "Ghetto Prisoners" are all brilliant tracks. The next major standout for me after that is "Life is What You Make It"(feat DMX). "Big Things" is average, but then comes one of the best tracks on the album, "Nas is Like". Backed by a beat from Premo, Nas is at his best on this track. The next track is ok, then comes "Money is My Bitch", which is good but not great. The finishing track, "Undying Love", is the one of the best storytelling tracks on the album, and a great one to end on. Overall, its a pretty solid album. If your a Nas fan, cop this. If your an avid hip hop listener, you might already have this, but if you don't, I'd recommend it.
