It's about time Nas damn been waiting on this release for so long. I wonder how different the tracklist will be as compared to what most fans thought would make the cut back when the first mention of the album surfaced? He better drop some never before released tracks as well as some remastered versions of songs that have been out for so long already.

True. I wish this had some older songs on it too though. Lookin' at the tracklist, it seems that this is newer material.

Glad to see that the release date isn't very far away. Seeing the tracklist took my anticipation down a notch tho. I was hoping for some older material as well.
Would've been nice to get a few of the older gems in CDQ. Production lineup looks decent but seeing Swizz Beatz doing 3 tracks, RZA doing 2 (he hasn't been as impressive to me lately as he was in his younger years), & Pharrell on 1 track doesn't make me think that this has the potential to be on par with Lost Tapes 1 which I rank as 1 of Nas' best albums. Surprised to see 2 Pete Rock joints on here & that Alchemist track should be dope. As far as familiarity goes I only recognize the song names "Who Are You?" (pretty good song) & "You Mean The World To Me" (sounds dope but the sequencing of the version that was released seemed off) which I really liked.

On a side note I wish they would've kept the original version of "No Idea's Original" on The Lost Tapes rather than the Barry White sampled version but they may have changed it due to sample clearing issues so who knows

iono, I fux with it. Not necessarily something that we are used to Nas doing which might explain why people don't like it tho

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

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

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.
