And yeah, I don’t see Kanye giving Nas his weird stuff. “Real Friends”, “No More Parties in LA”, etc....Kanye can still make the type of beats that Nas would sound good over IMO.

Hoping this is real. It’s been too long since Nas dropped an album.

Is the word that Kanye did the whole album of just had a hand in it by producing a few tracks or executive producing it?

Kanye’s first tweet:

“I'm hand producing all the albums I tweeted about. Been chopping samples from the sunken place 😂Pusha May 25th My album June 1st me and Cudi June 8th and Teyana June 22nd and oh yeah...”

And then his next tweet:

“Nas June 15th”

to wait for this news to come from the primary source or sources first rather than relying on Kanye.

Also, are Nas and Kanye on the same major label? How does Kanye reliably know Nas' label is solidly rolling out with the album for that date?

I’m cautiously optimistic about an album because this is the first I’ve heard of a Nas album since last spring, but.....until Nas and Def Jam put a release date on it it’s just speculation.

On the Breakfast Club call, that made you change your mind ?

Nas has prolly been scrambling around trying to figure out if/how to respond to this shit. Like "wtf this clown talking about I haven't seen him in 6 years ..."

but if that's the case, these are some weird ass promo techniques

http://www.thefader.com/2018/04/24/kanye-west-ebro-radio-show-i-love-you

he did say he was chopping samples from the 'sunken place' before all that Trump hoopla:
https://allhiphop.com/news/kanye-west-i-ve-been-chopping-samples-from-the-sunken-place-D9-6ajB5NE6jASrU3Zq6Eg/?full=1
so i guess in a way this is all deliberate

Thing is Nas doesn't have to put out music for financial gain anymore. He made it big investing in companies over the last 10 years or so. Anything weak he puts out can only taint his legacy. That's probably why he is in no hurry to release that album.

If Ye is focused and is truly pumping out high quality beats, the joke would probably be on all of us come june. It's only 7 tracks each, but for a Ye solo, Pusha, Teyana, Ye & Kudi AND a Nas project that's already 35 hot beats needed. I don't know... i don't see it happening, also marketing wise they would all be competing against each other as well.

This is something Kanye tweeted and is the only one who has mentioned it.

Nas and Primo were on a magazine cover together for their album.

Plus, Nas and Primo has proven to be a much better duo than Nas and Kanye.

That’s what I’m saying.

This Kanye/Nas shit is not at that level right now. All we have is a tweet from Kanye.

You just wanted to make a tired as Nas/Primo reference.

45. ""Nas Album Done" was amazing, so was "Powers That Be""
In response to Reply # 29


          

and also "Wrote My Way Out." Also, i haven't heard a verse from Nas that wasn't dope since Life Is Good, so why would i want him to retire? i don't want anyone still in their prime to retire. i want rappers to do this shit for life like rockers do. if they decide to retire, that's their choise, but why would i want someone still at the top of his craft to retire? that's dumb.

30. "That's Why It's A Total Waste Of Energy"
In response to Reply # 27


          

Nas needs a focused producer to bring him back to the Queesbridge sound not on some weird fantasy who's not even in their right mind right now to be fucking up their image.

That's why I said it was a waste, conyay is the last person Nas should be working with these days; I know some people are tired of hearing about the Nas & Premier collaboration album but the fact we all know it would be great for Nas and he needs one in the can to bring back his career to the streets, but doing another commercial album for the tmz fans isn't worth the energy.

Personally I wouldn't mind a Nas, Large Pro, & Akinyele album, with Extra P rhyming ^ doing all the production as well, and titling the album "Back At The Barbeque", I can see them really putting good concepts and laying down some of their best lyrics together.

Infact what happened to the Nas & AZ album, that would be nice to hear, what really would be dope if Nas did an album with Kool G. Rap and had producers like Havoc, Alchemist, Ayatollah, etc. doing production.

Ye had Harvey up to hear some of the stuff.

Each album is 7 songs and won't be promoted to any music platform.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BiCDxutglWa/

I just figured Nas is quiet because he's never been the best at promoting and the Ye tweet was really all we needed.

Hopefully we get some music soon tho, that's what is important.

But seriously, why in the world is this coming out before Nas' actual album that he's been working on since Life Is Good? The album referenced in that Khaled song from last year or so?

In response to Reply # 0


          

Adam & Eve, Bonjour, and I Can Explain are dope. Everything is a dope overall song with a workable but meh beat. Cops suffers from annoying vocal sample ala Faithful and Testify, but way worse, and overall meh lyrics. Not For Radio is a very bland and lame Black Republicans sounding beat. This doesn't hold a candle to Black Thought's EP.

In response to Reply # 68


  

          

I never came around on Common’s “Testify”.

It might’ve partly been my subconscious wanting Rick to continue rapping because I know that song by heart and can’t help but expect the next line to come, leaving me kinda disoriented when that shit keeps repeating.

I like it as a hook a lot.

Still, Nas made Cops Keep Firing a decade ago and it was better. Fair? Probably not.

I will need a few spins to decide how much I like it but enjoyed it first listen. I loved Cops but the sample may wear on me.

Im also not sure the order of the tracklisting or what I got is the final mix.

In response to Reply # 50


          

I haven't played the album yet, but I caught the last 2 songs of the release party live stream. The tracklist I've seen that seems to reflect the order played at the release party is the one that goes:
1. Not for Radio
2. Cops
3. I'm Gonna Have to Leave You
4. Bonjour
5. Everything
6. Adam & Eve
7. Simple Things

Yeah, that's what I have on mine and seems correct. I couldn't see it starting with Everything with that being so long and about 3 minutes before Nas first verse even comes in.

I have a slight glitch on Not for the Radio last verse around snitch, not sure if that's gonna get fixed but bugs me. lol

This has more of a Distant Relatives vibe from Nas, doing his preachy stuff which I'm not a super fan of but I think its overall pretty good.

The beats for the aforementioned songs should never make the cut on a 7-track album.

I never would've guessed that I'd like a song where The-Dream and Kanye sing the chorus, but I really like "Everything." I'd heard the complaints about the vocal sample on "Cops" but the only thing I didn't like about it was that it had a Kanye verse. It does a good job of capturing the feeling it's going for imo. Bonjour has a decent beat with a nice chorus. Adam and Eve is just classic Nas.

>not "everything, but HALF the album"

Lol. Since yall are being technical then, 3 songs isn't half of a 7-track album. It's 42.8% and half is 50% counting by songs lol. Since we're having fun tho, let's count by time. The whole album clocks in at 26:35. The songs I don't like total about 8:28 which is actually only 31.4% of the album. So you're wrong even in your attempted correction (you're 18.6% off). Maybe technicalities aren't for you. If you're gonna be technical about such insignificant details, at least get them right.

Always funny what yall choose to argue about. Lesson mofos man, I swear.
Kinda fascinating how 3 of yall responded and said nothing about what I said about the music... but how I stated how many songs I liked, even though the meaning of what I said was perfectly clear.
Do yourself a favor and learn some basic math tho. It'll enrich your life in ways you never imagined lol.

Take a look, it's in a book, etc.

It was on YouTube but I was busy and didn’t get a chance to listen before they removed it. I heard Adam and Eve and the song after that, on the YouTube listening party last night and that’s it.

Been looking to buy it in iTunes all day. It’s still not there. 2018. SMh.

I’m blown away at how this is even possible. Bad business though.

Nas holds his own but his FLOW is so stunted, disjointed.

And Nas always sounds like he just writes and never really plans endings for his verses. So many end awkwardly.

But Cops is dope as fuck. Frustrating.

Truth...and on another note, after two listens front to back, just don't think Nas sounds good over Kanye beats...just not a fit, and falls in-line with his historic poor ear to choose the right beats to spit over. Nas wants to come more experimental with the beats, those Cocain 80's brothers did it better for him....Maybe 2-3 songs I would listen to again...

I really enjoyed the album.. 24 years after his debut and still rapping strong and with content that’s relevant to where he’s at in life. Not really getting all the negativity.

Lurk everyday.. Post once a month..

Because that’s my only real complaint, now that I finally got the album. If they kept that sample for the intro and hook and cut it off when Nas is rapping, I’d like it a lot better.

I don’t dislike any of the songs.

Adam and Eve is my early favorite. I like Simple Things a lot, but that abrupt ending on such a short song? Felt like an odd ending for it to just stop.

I don’t usually go for the long dramatic Kanye songs, but Everything is pretty good.

I like Bonjour a lot too.

I still think the mix sounds like junk. Or maybe it's just that kanye's drums are still weak as shit. Cops for sure is terrible. That sample is one of the most annoying I've heard in a long time.

let it play a few times and this is really growing on me. I went from initial disappointment to loving it now which is weird as usually music doesn't grow on me like that. The only thing I thought was awkward is the Fox News lyric and the vaccination stuff a little unnecessary, everything else is fine. I think Nas rides the beats well, slows down his flow on some but it works for me. The Cops shot the Kid sample doesn't annoy me like it does others and I love Nas verse, simple but paints a picture effectively like only he can. Kanye's verse is fine but coming from him after his earlier bullshit is I'm not really sure...

I'm in the minority that likes this better than Thought's EP I'm sure. That was dope but the songs all sounded pretty much the same and blend together where this is more memorable to me with each song standing on its own. I feel like I will listen to this one much more.

I’ve never said that before, this just isn’t that good.

Some of the beats go, other are very mediocre and/or out of place. Nas obviously still spits like a monster however content wise it's kinda standard-issue Nas shit IMO. (Also he talks about a food a real lot on this album.)

How the fuck they ever thought White Label was worthy of being on a 7-song album is beyond me.

I'm probably not alone in wishing we got an album full of Adam & Eve style beats.

This is my least favorite album of the Wyoming Sessions, and that's counting Kanye's literally unfinished rough draft of an album.

Nas sounds disjointed on them. No feeling, no soul, no bounce to any of them. Lifeless.

Kanye's 1-4 IMO and that's being generous since I like only half of Pusha's album. These albums are very clearly being rushed and the beats sound half-baked, sparse, soulless. Nas sounds surprisingly uninspired on this album. Sad that we had to wait 6 years just to hear Kanye ruin the God MC.

Hopefully we will ultimately hear some of the work from the past 6 years that was supposed to be the new Nas album. Has to be better than this rush job.

Agreed...again, Nas beat choice is horrible...He chooses Kanye to do all the production, again, bad choice...Alchemist, EL-P (a real boundary pusher, while keeping it fly), Exile (would have laced him), and even 9th would have been better choices...

"White Label," "Adam & Eve," and "Simple Things" are cool enough. "everything" is overlong, but I like most of the rhymes. But this is pretty unremarkable overall. Feels like the music half was mailed in, and Nas doesn't seem that interested on the mic.
