Yeah, the first single is trash. Nas needs to say that it was a street single and release somethin' else.

I guess Iím different than most because I donít care about the production that much and I kind of feel like less is more when you have a great lyricist like Nas.  Like the last shit he did with Kanye was overproduced and trash to me.  I loved Lost Tapes 1 because the beats were very simplistic and it just felt like Nas was all in the studio alone off in a zone. 

Take an artist like Ras Kass and he got panned for his beats on Soul On Ice but I actually loved him on those beats because you could really zero in on the lyrics and storytelling.

Iím hopeful though just because of the title.  And Nas is one of those great artists like PAC who carries backlogs of unreleased gems that could fill full albums and I play in rotation for years and years.  I got about 2-3 unreleased Nas albums of classic material, so heís gotta have some heat in the canon

nasir was far from trash ... and the beats on soul on ice was great

but yea, some artists can definitely make a good song on an average beat. theyíre few and far between tho.

Naw homie I totally agree with you, I love the beats on Soul On Ice.  But the critical perception in such magazines as the Source, etc was that the album was a failure at the time cause of his choice of beats. 

The critics said the same thing to Canibus they said his first album was a failure cause of the beats, but how do? Wyclef was in his prime in those days, but those East Coast journalists are just on the dick of Premier, Large Pro, or whatever I donít know

...btw, Nasir was trash and Iím no fan of Kanye

I DIDNT THINK NASIR WAS HIS BEST WORK, BUT THERE WAS SOME DOPE JOINTS ON THERE, AND OVERALL WAS A SOLID ALBUM.....BEATS WERENT THE BEST BUT THEY WERENT BAD EITHER.
