    he gave Common plenty of heat for The Dreamer the Believer

    Now we just need that Nas.Com and let No ID produce it

    Yeah I know I bought the album I was joking in a sense that I could hear Common flowing over it even though NAS killed it..I think thats my favorite track on the album that beat goes hard in the whip(the bass especially)I could listen to it 10X straight....Im glad the bonus tracks were all on one disc, God Son ended right with heaven so I could understand the 2nd Disc being needed but wit L.I.G it all blended perfectly.

    Swizz gave God Son a banger with this one though.....

    @Genicide

    In HipHop circles it's the album of the Summer but it doesent have the club-bangers, street-bangers or trunk-rattlers to make it the traditional Summer album that gets the most burn.

    Nas music is best for headphone listening were you can focus on the lyrical content and digest it, these Summer HipHop albums are meant to be played at high volume.

    It's easily album of the year and Grammybworthy tho.

    I'm the N to the A to the S.I.R and if I wasn't I must have been Escobar.

    Nas has surpassed Rakim, I know it's blasphemous but Ra' been too stingy with the rhymes and Nas just fed us a feast.

    nothing blasphemous about that at all. Nas been surpassed rakim and is the greatest lyricist and arguably rapper ever.

    Nas
    "Roses"

    Just like a rose
    Everybody knows that you are so beautiful
    But I feel a thorn in my hide
    I should've known, we can't repair what we broke
    But I held you close
    Too close

    Them Xanax can't manage your maniac manic depressive expressions
    They some silent killers, that stress shit
    That put ulcers in a lot of niggas
    I'm blowing medical, it helps chill a violent temper
    I done went to hell and back, you always think you right
    You know when you wrong, and still you want to fight
    When people like my song, you want to kill 'em right?
    You resent me every time I make a million right?
    You want to experience life when you calling all the shots
    Ordering bottles for all your girls up in the spot
    Have your own cash, own your own Benz
    Your own house, everything, me, I understand
    Thought you would bask in the glory as Queen Bee
    Put you on under Martin Scorsese: Mean Street
    The first movie he made, thought that was fly
    I thought you was flyer, you a fuckin' liar...

    LIFE IS GOOD...

    If you want to know Nas influence just look at the reaction-buttons "Ether" is a common phrase now.

    I'm very glad I bought this cd without listen to leaked songs before the release date. This album did meet my expectations, it's a great album.

    so Damian Marley suggested the title?

    Anyway I think that year or so he was recording and touring with Damian did him good. As someone else said, he stepped up his live performance game a bit around Damian.

    Glad I caught one of those Distant Relatives shows.

    Damian covering Bob's 'One Love' then going into Nas' One Love >>>>

    says Life Is Good was "therapeutic"

    6 years after HHID, says hip hop is alive but "on the respirator"
