No Introduction: Nas hits hard on this dark, dramatic song that kicks the album off
Loco-Motive: A grimey offering with the style reminiscent of the 90's era without sounding too dated, Nas tells the tale that he is still moving, still living.
A Queens Story: Theatrical stirring violins bring in this track then the beat knocks and Nas begins tellin the tale of his home borough of Queens.
Accident Murderers: A heavy track with the sound of a 90's sample in the kicks and drums a theatrical track feat Ricky Rozay.Read more ›
The thing that's really great about this album is that it's exactly what rap fans have been waiting for: Nas returning to his old self. It isn't quite Illmatic, or even Stillmatic for that matter, but in my opinion it comes pretty close. Lyrically he is a monster once again, his flow is so on point in basically every song, and the production is great. The concept of the album is great idea and you know Nas will keep it lyrically relevant. The fact that he has been in the game for 18 years but he can still come up with the stuff in this album is pretty amazing. Obviously once you blow up and get famous like he did, it's pretty hard to remain true to yourself, but that's exactly what Nas did with this album. I fully feel like it is a successful attempt at a return to his old days when he was one of the guys that dominated rap.
If you have the money and you like rap, definitely get this album. It's fantastic throughout and I can't stress enough how great Nas is in every single song. I definitely think the $14 I paid for it were well worth it for the Deluxe Edition, which includes the single Nasty along with 3 other great songs. Bottom line is, if you enjoy rap, you won't be disappointed by this terrific effort from Nas. Get the album.
Memorable songs from album: Accident Murderers, Daughters, World's an Addiction, You Wouldn't Understand
Nas provides you an opus here that is dope - but not trendy. It is an album for hip-hop heads
that isn't trying to PRETEND that it was made by a 20 year old.
"Daughters" alone brought me in... because I too am 40 with a with a daughter and my concerns and perspectives
have changed since I was a teenaged hip-hop head. That said, "Cherry Wine" has been on CONSTANT replay
since I first heard it. Foregoing "Illmatic," that song would have been in place on "Midnight Marauders."
I can't give any higher praise.
Meanwhile, songs like "Bye, Baby" (aimed squarely at ex-wife Kelis) and "Stay" are poignant and give a perspective
that only someone who has been in relationships and/or entertainment as long as Nas could deliver.
Long story short: If you're looking for paint-by-the-numbers usual offerings, you might be disappointed.
If you too are a long-time lover of hip-hop who has lived long enough to have a change in perspective - and APPRECIATE those changes, then you like me will LOVE this album.
