LOL at Crooked I of all people, who doesn't have one classic project (let alone a proper studio debut album), trying to criticize a legend  :laugh:

all more or less "street" projects... what's his break-out debut studio album that was released on CD and charted?

Statik King even though it was good was a collaborative effort and can't even hang with Nas' 'average' albums lol

i thought statik kxng was excellent  .. better than i am or nastradaumas

i don’t think he’s a big enough name to chart tbh, so any release he puts out could be considered a “street album” .. i think he’s a credible enough lyricist to share his opinion .. the only thing i do think is funnystyle is him not callin out em for whackness.

I'm tired of people on the internet. Too many people with an opinion.

Better than "I Am"? Nah. I love Crook, but nah. "Nastradamus" is probably Nas' worst album but "Come Get Me" and "Shoot 'Em Up" are better than any songs on "Statik King". That's just how i feel though.

those are two decent albums .. statik kxng was great. a truly cohesive project that bumped front 2 back. i’m
not talkin bout one or two songs, i’m talking as entire bodys of work. i always felt crooked was a great lyricist with underwhelming solo work, but he got it right with statik kxng .

Joe Budden Podcast actually ripped the album. Mostly blamed Ye.

I still don't hear the flaw on this album. His flow is in the same league as Life Is Good, which was universally loved.

Its because its a new sound for Ye. Its not polished, its more of a grimey and gritty production style or at least it seems that way for all these albums. The only track that sound totally polished to me was Pusha T's If You Know You Know. I loved the Nas album minus Cops Shot The Kid. I'd rather hear Val Young sing MMMMMMMM MMMMMMM MMMMMMM throughout 2Pac's To Live and Die In L.A. than that song. (She never stops humming throughout the entire song.)

Nas is one of my favorite hip hop artists of all time. Lyrics and flow were good on this album, but I hated the production. I’m ready for some other producers to remix it.

But I look at this as a side project for Nas, I’m sufe we’ll get a traditional album from him in the not too distant future.

I could understand people not being partial to the production on "Cops Shot The Kid" and "White Label" but even those 2 grew on me on the second listen lol initially when I heard them I was kinda meh but now I fuck with them, as for the rest I don't see how anybody can say those tracks aren't heat

"Not For Radio", "Everything", and "Adam & Eve" are all 5/5 vintage Nas joints

I’ll give it some more spins. I listened to cops shot the kid, the first track that was hate me now ish, and briefly another one and was overall turned off by the production. Lyrically and flow Nas was great. I just can’t stand the production. Mainstream production is just watered down drill/trap beats and a lot of noise. Kanye’s been on this post apocalyptic minimalist noisy stuff for a minute. Just not my thing.

I’ll check it again this week when I have some time off.

I might have to revisit this. I thought both Kanye and Nas were fine in this album, but it seemed off to me. Like there was something missing in terms of chemistry between the two. I might be wrong, maybe I just need to give it a fresh listen away from all the bullshut surrounding the release, like every article about Kelis's domestic violence allegations.

finally got the hard copy in the mail

solid album .. not one of his best efforts but still got some dope joints on there

definitely not as well produced as the pusha joint tho
