Talking about his Nigger/Untitled album.

I'm still just not feeling it.  I got hyped when I heard the internet track he did with DJ Khalid and then that song wasn't even on the album.  This album doesn't even fall within his top 5 albums, and I don't think there is any certified bangin joint on this album that you can put on repeat.  Seemed like Nas was trying to be too much on this album, he's better off just being that dude on the corner that says a few deep words, gives you a pound and keeps going.  Rather than trying to be this larger than life "Hero" superstar, it didn't work.

Nas' best albums...

1.  Illmatic
2.  Stillmatic
3.  God's Son
4.  It Was Written
5.  Hip-Hop Is Dead
6.  Lost Tapes

Nas weaker albums...

6. Streetz Disciple
7. I Am
 8. Nigger/Untitled
9. Nastradaumus -- HIS WORST

I thought it was and still is a great album. But yeah when you put out so many albums as Nas has and match it up with some of his previous work, it is not as good, but still a great album overall.

Nas and Tip's albums are my albums of the year so far.

Nas made a great real Hip Hop album.

Tip made a great mainstream Hip Hop album.

I don't like it...  it's not the album of the year.

TI and Cube released better albums.

"Nas proved with Untitled that he's still by far the best MC in the game, his lyrics, song concepts and creativity after 17 years in the game simply puts all his contemporaries to shame." - Quote

This album doesn't even fall within his top 5 albums, and I don't think there is any certified bangin joint on this album that you can put on repeat.

Yeah, the album wasn't all that, but "Louis Farrakhan" is classic.

I wasn't feeling it at all either. Way too cheesy, a major let down. only track i really liked was "hero" even though it was corny with him talking about being a hero even though the song consisted of average rapper boasting.
