Distant Relatives wasn't too good... certainly wasn't an abomination, but I don't listen to it much.
I still love Untitled more than about any Nas album, but this is better.
It was the cheesiest, corniest thing I've ever listened to.
The first time the Lenster listened to it he was in a library going over a walkthrough for Star Trek online. The Lenster had to leave immediately with no words.Quote:

No wonder I think you have it out for me. I try discussing something with you and it's just impossible.
Life is Good sounds great from what I've heard so far. I just wish Trust came with the deluxe edition without having to purchase it through iTunes, cause that's a nice track!
:laugh2: The Lenster always laughs at that one.Quote:

As far as singles, NaS's biggest hit on the charts was "If I Ruled the World". His highest selling solo single is "Street Dreams" which is his only single certified Gold. His highest calloration single is "Hot Boyz" With Missy, Eve and Q-tip which went Platinum. So again for all the people talking about NaS show me how much your favorite rapper sold? Lil Wayne has not sold more albums than NaS to put this on context. NaS has sold 20 Million worldwide
I've been listening to this today at work. It's a damn good album. I really like the orchestral beats and the throwback jams. There is a lot of balance to the album that comes to a screeching halt with Summer on Smash, but that track is tolerable if you fast forward to the verses. I really like the wise, personally aware, street veteran persona Nas has been cultivating over the last couple of years in his music.
I'm not exactly blown away by the album, but it is really solid.
