I know his catalog is weak, but is that really the third piece of the holy trinity? Has anybody listened to it in the last five years?

Thought it was great because it had the commercially appealing songs that didn't sound forced, and he still got off lyrically.

I'm in love with 2/3rds of the album, but I could say the same for "God's Son". "Lost Tapes" is the legitimate classic that should round out the trio.

In response to Reply # 9


  

          

On one hand...it's not an album because it is in fact a collection of unreleased songs and Nas didn't even really put it out.

On the other hand...if I'm recommending someone some dope music to check out, or even some dope 'albums' to check out from say, that year, or in Nas' catalogue, I have to mention it because it has some of the best songs on there period.

Plus, it's impossible to 'not' have a sequence lol

its probably the best Hip Hop compilation thats not a greatest hits, but it's not an album despite the quality of the songs (which is the argument people seem to want to make so they can fit it in with their point)

The Lost Tapes, Stillmatic, and God's Son are all dope

I Am and Untitled are 3.5s

Nastradamus, Hip-Hop Is Dead, and Streats Disciple all of some quality but as a whole I could do without.

particularly for what they mean to Nas's career

but Life Is Good > Stillmatic for the whole length of the LP

even though Stillmatic has more "iconic" Nas records ("Ether", "One Mic", "Got UR Self A Gun" et al) and some sharp album cuts, there are a couple of songs that sound "not quite right" now as they did then.

Regardless of if you feel IWW is better than either of those second two, each of these represent Nas at a different point of his career. One is his arrival and the others are his return to form after a lackluster string of albums before it. When looking back at his career these are the 3 most important albums.
