Nas - God's Son
« on: December 25, 2002, 03:33:50 PM »
Nas – God’s Son

1. Get down…Automatically reminiscent of Ice T’s “You played yourself”, using the sample of ‘The Boss’.  Nas flows like water over the smooth track telling a story.  4.5/5
2. The cross…Dope production by Eminem—it matches up well to Nas’ flow and delivery.  Great hook.  5/5
3. Made you look…Nas lays down some great verses, but the beat is terrible.  It would be a hell of a lot better if the beat were different.  3/5
4. Last real nigga alive…Tight slow production.  Nas tells a summarization of his come-up into the rap game.  He takes shots and give props.  4.5/5
5. Zone out…The production sounds like it’s being played backwards.  This is pretty much a Bravehearts track, with Nas laying down minimal vocals.  The Bravehearts do not bring much to the table here.  1.5/5
6. Hey Nas…Fairly simple production opens the track up and Nas begins to tell a story of a woman and later expands to what he looks for in a soul mate.  Kelis sounds great on the hook.  4/5
7. I can…Another basic beat but what makes it come alive is the melodic piano.  Nas spits 3 great verses in this inspirational track, mainly aimed at children.  The children’s vocals are a nice touch to the chorus.  4.5/5
8. Book of rhymes…This is a unique concept of a song.  Nas is thumbing through some of his old rhymes while in the studio and stops in the middle of them and starts with another.  Beat fits well.  4/5
9. Thugz mansion…This song does not sound right at all.  Nas and Pac put down some dope lyrics, but it almost sounds like a country song.  A+ for the vocals, but the acoustic version is a skipper.  2/5
10.  Mastermind…Smooth production.  Nas puts together a nice mafiaoso track.  4/5
11.  Warrior song…The production by Alicia Keys is a bit bland, put Nas’ vocals sound great mixed with it.  Alicia’s hook is A+.  4/5
12.   Revolutionary warfare…Beat has an uptempo/happy feel to it.  Nas and Lake sound good together trading verses back and forth on the last verse.  4/5
13. Dance…A heartfelt track dedicated to Nas’ mother.  Two powerful verses.  Great chorus.  5/5
14. Heaven…Chorus is a bit drawn out, but it still sounds good.  Nas sounds great on the mic even though his flow is very different from his regular style.  A good message about material things vs. tangible objects.  4/5

OVERALL…4/5

Very consistent album.  The entire CD gives off an overall positive vibe, which is nice for a change with much of what comes out today.  Nas’ most personal album to date, with a wide range of subject matter.

Get Down - Great opener, smooth track - 4.5/5

The Cross - One of the best Eminem productions yet. Nice verses - 4.25/5

Made You Look - Ruff street track. Kinda doesn't fit the rest of the album, but still it's dope - 4.25/5

Last Real Nigga Alive - Lyrically very interesting and a pretty impressive view on NY's 90's rap history from Nas' perspective - 5/5

Zone Out - I don't know why people don't like this. It's nuthin special, but I don't see what's supposed to be bad about it - 3.25/5

Hey Nas - Could be a nice track, but to me the chorus is very annoying - 3/5

I Can - Nice way of using a very old and well-known melody for a hiphop beat - 3.75/5

Book Of Rhymes - Very unique, The Alchemist's production fits nicely...overall one of the best tracks - 4.25

Thug'z Mansion (NY) - I just don't like that type of chorus. Pac's and Nas' verses make up for it though, plus the track not having any kind of bassline makes it very unique - 3.75/5

Mastermind - Average on this album, I skip this alot, not that it's wack or something though - 3/5

Warrior Song - Also rather average on this album - 2.75/5

Revolutionary Warfare - Great beat, interesting lyrics. I listen to this one alot - 4.5/5

Dance - Very deep and emotional, lyrically great. The hook fits in and Nas shows more skills than on most other tracks putting his feelings into words - 4.5/5

Heaven - Strange song, I like the uptempo beat it has, it's pretty unique too - 3.5/5

Lets see, lyrics were on point.. he brought a whole lot of wisdom on this album
Beats, some alright ones. I like the beat to "Made you Look" and "Book of Rhymes".
Personally I think he needs to work on his delivery, I know alot of people will disagree cause according to most his delivery is just where it needs to be.
Production was decent too.

I'd give it a 4/5

This album was pretty boring to me... it was a huge step backwards for Nas from "Stillmatic" Imo.

These tracks stand out: "Dance", "Get Down", "Book Of Rhymes" & "The Cross". The rest of the album is just mediocre...

3.5 / 5

Peace

id give this album 3/5,i was a bit dissapointed in it really,not that its wack,but it dont measure up to "stillmatic" or even "the lost tapes",which i think are equally consistent records,in terms of classic appeal,.

my fav dope tracks from "godsson"

Made you look-great i thoughtfor a single,goood production,it grew on me,.

Last real nigga alive-great narrative,another grower,but the beat is a wee bit boreing on repeated listen,.

Thugmansion-prolly just my personal pref' here,but i like this better than both versions on Better Dayz,country sounding or not,.

I can-i thought a lil wack at first,but like the three tracks listed before here,it was a grower,i love the pianos,.

Mastermind-i liked this one on first listen,love the lyrix,its a personal fav nas track,.

Halfway dope tracks

Book of ryhmes-good concept,but i just dont it was executed well,kind of boring,.

Get down- a good openr for the album,very unexpected,.


worst track from "Godsson"


Zone out-this song is fucking terrible,.


everything else,...i didnt find that memerable,just "OK",but not great,.
initial dissapointment turned good into a constant player though,but i think its just another album,nothing great,.

1. Get down….  4.5/5
My personal Fav on the album, dope beat nice lyrics

2. The cross…  3.75/5
Huge dissapointment, Eminem comes amatuer on the boards even though its a dope beat and Nas lyrics can be disrespectful

3. Made you look….  3.25/5
Im suprised how well this single did considering thjje fact that its a "new type" of ol skool beat.....and its getting mad play...Lyrics are crap

4. Last real nigga alive….  4.5/5
Dope ass lyrics......

5. Zone out…  1/5
I puked when I heard this./.....disgusting, Bravehearts better come harder!

6. Hey Nas….  3/5
Dissapointment....I got the advance and I was shocked how bad this song is..... Nas bullshits himself and contradicts his "prophecies" on this and the chorus is wack.....and a huge dissapopintment

7. I can… 4/5
Nice Piano laced beat, ncie rhymes......IS GETTING MAD RADIO AND VIDEO PLAY but its for 10 yr old girls..chorus is wack as hell

8. Book of rhymes… 4.75/5
Very close to 5, but Nas has a wack verse in this...EXTREMELY CREATIVE is why its gets extra marks.....tight though

9. Thugz mansion…  3.5/5
Both OG and this are disgusting....Thansk to that little fagget Nas for ruining this track.... Pac even hated this bitch, fuck that eveyone else says

10.  Mastermind…  3.75/5
Lyrics are nice, beat is decent....sounds similair to THE OG REMIX OF "Made You look".....

11.  Warrior song…   3.75/5
Dissapointed with this and Alicia Keys part...

12.   Revolutionary warfare… 4/5
dope lyrics....

13. Dance… 4/5
Mixed opinions of this..Im feelin it though

14. Heaven…  4.5/5
Creative song..."Put a famous bitch on the hook there you go with a platinum CD" is true.....

OVERALL…4.38/5
