This is the best Nas has sounded since Stillmatilc and at its easily his best album since Gods Son. Summer On Smash just doesn't fit the rest of the album in my opinion though. Queens Story and Worlds an Addiction are my favourite tracks so far

Yeah, it's kinda upsetting he had to throw that one there.

But yeah, "Queens Story" & "Worlds An Addiction" are out of this world.

Damn straight, Nas's best album since Stillmatic.  I gotta give it more time but off my first few listens this is damn near classic.  As weak as Nas's ear is for beats I think the production is great on this and fits the tempo and mood of the album really good.  If you ain't feeling this you have something wrong with your ears.

Finally picked up my deluxe copy and listened to it twice start to finish...WOW

Nas is truly the GOAT.

Roses, Where's the Love, Loco-motive, Queens Story, Daughters, man this guy is just amazing.

Def worth the money, this won't be leaving my cd player anytime soon.

man after this you can really see what god Nas is...i mean he said he will drop a album named "Life is Good" and everybody was panicking...then the tracklist was revealed and people was crying "uh too much singer-features/wtf is Ross doing on that etc."...people were crying over the cover too...and now see what this man did again...

the only joint im not feelin is the Swizz joint...but its still okay...just dont fit in there...beatwise definatly one of his strongest...but IMO every of his Def Jam albums had good beats...

i would maybe put this in my top 5 nas albums...have to wait how the feeling is after 1 year or so after bumpin it 500 times...

WOW...also did you guys know that this got a XXL score drom the XXL?  :o

 Got my copy(deluxe edition), i've given it a couple of listens now. Definitely like it. Its a more grown mature nas, some of the songs are definitely grown up music. I dont like all of teh songs, some weak beats and i dont like all the singing but i must say that Nas has still got it and is as good a rapper as ever.
 The album sounded alot better hearing it a second time. I liek teh lyrics and subject matter and some of teh beats are extremely well produced, musical.
 I had no fucking idea Nas had done shit with Amy Whine house and i'd never heard her sing before(that i know of) but i have to say that "cherry wine" track is a fucking great song. Really feelin it.

So let me guess.  That album was flawless, it flowed so well that it clogged your sink and bathtub up?  Nas' raps were so cohesive and flowed so well that u understood it without having to actually listen to what he was actually saying in the order it was said?  All of them tracks are so so fuckin vicious that anybody outside of Nas and Rakim are blatant teenaged homosexuals that only started to listen to Rap becuz Lil Wayne came out with Leotards around the same time Lil B came out with "I'm Gay"?  Nevermind that that album is depressing and boring as hell the way it is with all of those sad ass songs on there, and fuck having a real DJ oversee the final project.  Becuz u kno, actual DJ's and "real hip hop" just don't mix?  U got it buddy.  


But when you're done listening to "Life Is Good" after the first month how do u feel? *assuming Nas isn't your favorite rapper

Album wasn't flawless but dude is right. You're not an "executive producer" or some marketing genius. You're a fan like everybody else. Let the artist decide what songs make the album and you can be the one who goes into Best Buy with the $12 to buy it or downloads it off the net for free.

Post by: Furor Teutonicus on September 18, 2012, 02:22:20 AM
Really like it so far. First 7 tracks are all fine.

Ofc the Swizz Beats track is the worst of the album. The follwoing tracks are pretty average, but with Stay, Nas picks up again.

If I compare him to peers like Snoop, Cube etc.., Nas is one of the very few OG's who still delivers. Kudos to Nas.
Title: Re: Nas - Life Is Good (Discussion thread)
Post by: jeromechickenbone on September 19, 2012, 02:51:00 AM
Album definitely has some excellent songs, I've listened to it several times. Def better than the vast majority of albums out. Nas is one of the last of a dying breed, I'm just glad someone like him is still out there and still continues to improve in many ways.

I loved the "Untitled" album, and I also feel what he was doing with life is good. There are some incredible tracks on there, and I prolly don't even know the titles unfortunately. The first time I heard that "where I'm from" song with the claps, I immediately think of Eric b and rakim...I love the piano loop sample from make the music with your mouth from biz Markie on "this kind of love". Nas has been interpolating and paying homage like that since streets disciple, yet that is lost on most people...I need to check the credits to see who produced those songs...

There are a few tracks I skip, of course the swizz beats joint which I don't think has ever made it more than 10 seconds in my car, and a couple others which nas is still dope on, but are on a more acapella tip which throws me off after I jammed The Don on 11 in the whip (song is ridiculous).

Overall very good album, worth the $. Nas doing it better than pretty much everyone in the game, and he's been at it for over 20 years and continues to improve...how many other people can you say that about in hip hop?
