Something strange happens when a rapper pushes 40, they either become a reggae artist with Lion at the end of their name (Snoop Lion anybody?) or they stay loyal to the genre that made them famous. Thankfully, Nas keeps it hip-hop with his new album and, not only that, has managed to sell loads of records in doing so. He has been hit or miss with his last few albums; "Untitled" didn't quite live up to expectations but his collaboration LP with Damien Marley proved his creativity remains intact. So with this in mind I put on "Life Is.. [...]
nas's 'the don' is a pretty serious tune. salaam remi on production. cv of a big producer since here comes the hot steppa, fu-gee-la, made you look, bust your windows and luv a dub . this one's a slow burner for slow summer. Nas interview here . --- massive attack introduce a lot of space. live (sounding) snares evoke that a-la-mode mid 90s hip hop, but the amount of variation on tone and reverb really opens it out and gives the track more breath.

Nas - Life Is Good Def Jam: 2012 Nebulous background chatter among hip-hop’s cognescenti would have us believe that Nas’ musical output since his classic debut has defined the hip-hop law of diminishing returns. I have certainly bought into the assessment. And this coming from a head who in fact heard Illmatic after It Was Written , loved the latter to a high degree, but had his total outlook on ‘90s New York City boom-bap (not to mention the very ethos of the artist in question) corrected upon hearing the former. At [...]
Nas tries to power through uneven production with fiery raps, but the sad truth is that the self-conscious way Life is Good is put together undermines his energy and intention. Since his debut, 1994's Illmatic, Nas has been an artist in search of his next classic. He's produced some solid records -- Hip Hop is Dead for example -- but never quite hit it out of the park again. Part of the reason Nas has run into trouble comes from the baggage his albums always end up carrying. God's Son is uneven, but mostly hampered by the [...]
Now that we've reached the half way point of 2012, I present to you the Videos of The Year (so far). It's good to see people being creative with their visuals and not just doing the bog standard music video. Thanks to all that voted!

so i was with Este the other night enjoying some Cuban's i smuggled home from vacation and he mentioned something to me......and it's a reminder to me and all Nas fans...... the "nasty" song was heavy and this "don" song is tuff BUT we all stand that chance of getting amped for the cd only to then run home to open it or illegally download it and start skipping track after track cuz the other 12 songs blow.... i hope he stays on point [...]
Deen only needs one person to agree with him. I was gonna say this song "grew" on me, but that's untrue. I loved it from jump. As is often the case with Nas singles, I was more concerned about OTHER people's reactions to the song than mine (for the record, this may be the only area of life in which other people's opinions have enough impact on me to induce "concern"), because the second I heard the Reggae/Ragga/Dancehall/Jamaica n vibe of the beat, I figured Nas and Salaam (shouts to Da Internz, and of course, Heavy [...]

One of the best rappers of all time, hands down!
Nas has been on a pretty serious roll with the singles littering the lead-up to his tenth studio effort Life Is Good , the previously released "Nasty" and "The Don" both registering as screwface/ head-nod-igniting, boom bap-backed lyrical workouts that nod back to his early 902s throne-nabbing roots while also giving the strong hint of Life possibly being another "five mic"-worthy classic. That Illmatic -esque quality hasn't dipped an inch For third official pre-tease "Daughters", a poignant father-to-"princess" ode that finds him struggling with how to deal with a rapidly maturing [...]
