In response to Reply # 4


  

          

when I first heard it in 2015, I downloaded the "cassette" version and the "acetate" versions off YouTube. I liked both but they were both of poor quality.

I went into Audacity and combined both tracks so that the lower frequencies (bass) of the acetate and the higher frequencies of the cassette meshed well together and provided a more decent-sounding song. I think I had a total of 8 or so tracks within Audacity because I had to filter and pan some of them so I can get an actual stereo sound since I think the cassette version was focused more on the right.

16. "So, maybe this is our chance to finally hear "Get Up"..."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

...in case you are unfamiliar, there was an article leading up to the release of Streets' Disciple that I think was published in The New Yorker or maybe New York magazine. It was a profile on Nas and it described a song called "Get Up" which was to be a sequel to the intro "Get Down" off God's Son. It never made the cut on SD but I would love to hear it if it's in a similar vein as "Get Down".


Another song from that era we already have but it would be cool to get a mastered version of would be the original version of the actual song "Streets' Disciple". If you ever heard the original, it's got the same Billy Joel sample from "Stilettos" that was sampled on G. Rap & DJ Polo's "Road To Riches". Billy recently cleared "Zanizbar" back in 2015 for Action Bronson so it's entirely possible the (correct) version of the song without the dreadful synths may be officially liberated for this as well.

Also, pardon me if anyone has already mentioned this but "The Rise & Fall" should be a shoe-in for this project. Honestly, I can't think of any other rapper with a doper vault of unreleased/leaked songs than Nas.

19. "RE: Nas - Lost Tapes 2"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Other than the ones people already mentioned, I'd also wanna hear a CDQ of 'Nas Will Prevail' if Large Pro still had that on a reel. There are also some other tracks Nas did with Large Pro that he said Nas paid to re-acquire the reels from the label, so hopefully some of those might make the cut (Pro said Nas used some of the verses on other tracks that came out though). Would also like to hear 'The Curse' in full, and Take It In Blood alternate version. Oh, and that demo Nas apparently cut for Eric B before he hooked up with Large Pro.....

It's killing me cause I'm 90% sure it's sampled in another song but I can't put my finger on it. Been wracking my brain all day.

I kind of expected it to be more recent stuff. It just makes sense.

But, why am I not surprised that he recorded tracks with Pete Rock, RZA, and Alchemist and they didn't make his albums.

Nas is one of the greatest mc’s ever. For me all his albums after I Am were let downs. He has some classic songs in those projects. And no I don’t need his albums to be Illmatic level. His selection is terrible as far as beats go. He definitely needs someone to monitor what he’s rapping over. It’s like he don’t care Lost Tapes was classic then he puts this out and it sounds like throwaways.

Stillmatic, God’s Son, Street’s Disciple, and Untitled were all
good albums. Distant Relatives was good too.

Life is Good was a great album.

Hip Hop is Dead was decent.

I’ve got no problem with his discography or most of the beats he raps on.

Even his comeback with Stillmatic and Godson he didn’t knock it outta the park. Streets Disciple has him doing a lazy double disc that has a pointless Busta Rhymes feature and the Q-Tip beat that man picks smh.

no wonder these were left off any of his albums. Sad, as Lost Tapes was a classic, and Life Is Good was amazing other than 2-3 songs. Even Nasir was better than this. And let me add, a lot of Nas' rhymes aren't the problem. The beats don't grab me at all, and the choruses are really bad.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

...it's receiving. It takes a while to get going, and "Jarreau of Rap" sounds like a joke, but the second half is solid. I'm cool with everything after "Adult Film." And "Highly Flavored" is as good as anything he's done in the '00s.

I think the key difference between this and the first Lost Tapes is that part was filled with completed songs intended for an album that got leaked, whereas this one has lots of material that's incomplete and Nas wanted to flesh out more, but didn't.

What’s the problem? It wasn’t enjoyable for me. I came in anticipating this album because of Lost Tapes one. IMO it not touching that at all. I wouldn’t have called it lost tapes.

If I have to get through nine songs to get to good stuff that’s saying something. I will finish the album. Still there’s still lots of zero replay value on most of this album.

Really liked songs 10-13, as well as Queensbridge Politics and the album closer.

And on repeated listens liked some of the songs on the first half.

IMO there’s 3-4 really good-great songs, and another 6-7 good ones. The rest are average, and the one that everyone is hating on...well, that’s kindve it’s own thing. Lol. Still not sure what to do with that one, but at least Nas rode the beat.

I’m not mad at the album at all though.

1 I didn’t mention Jarreau of Rap it’s all, let alone say how it compared to Lost Tapes 1

2 I didn’t mention Lost Tapes at all.

3 I didn’t even give my opinion on Lost Tapes 2 so I’m not sure why you’re responding like a jack ass. Says a lot more about you than it does me bro.

4 You can’t even form an opinion past “beats and choruses were really bad” which is a pretty played ass response at this point and sounds like you didn’t even listen to the album past Jarreau of Rap.

There are a few standouts, but I'll never listen to the rest of it. I'm happy with the joints I like.
I'm not "disappointed" because I didn't expect some mindblowing album. Shoutout to everyone who thought Lost Tapes 1 was a super strong album throughout. I just don't share that sentiment.

In response to Reply # 63


  

          

I've had plenty, in fact a lot of people (irl) who didn't even know about "Lost Tapes" even though there was copies of "Stillmatic" that had snippets of it as a bonus tracks.

Anyway once I told them, and when I see then later they usually happy about their purchase and wonder about is more coming cause some do remember a few being on mixtapes back in the day and whatnot.

Me personally I'm never happy with a Nas album, but even I was surprised how many songs I liked on it, I will agree there is some songs better than others but even single one, the only song I don't care for is "Poppa Was A Playa".

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

but also have a lot of unreleased songs of his I feel are better than most the songs on this. Still, Im not really disappointed as Nas is my favorite rapper and enjoy listening to new verses by him, just could have been a bit better for a true Lost Tapes 2 that could have been closer to matching the original.

and Nas himself doesn't disappoint, but yeah, 95% of the beats are skips, and most of the choruses are bad.

In response to Reply # 81


  

          

I got both Pete, both RZA, and Alchemist as heaters at a minimum. You only like 1 beat, basically?

and QP is the only beat I LOVE. It Never Ends is ehh okay, but I don't love it. Nothing else slaps. Lyrically, Nas never comes meh or wack, or even close, but the beats? Nah, for the most part. The choruses? Nope. Tanasia is fucking horrible. Actually, that might be the one joint where even Nas raps are bad.

In response to Reply # 81


  

          

...yes, it becomes much better with the Nas rhymes, but thats not a Pete Rock beat to tell your kids about. This is coming from a huge Pete Rock fan so no disrespect to him.

In response to Reply # 0


          

This sounds all over the place, not cohesive with small flashes of great in between it, and a couple outright clunkers.....which is the way a collection of throwaways works for anyone else.

Personally I like about half of it, but I can say there really isn't one record that made he go "damn this should've been on the album it was made for".

ALC should've gotten his record for one of his comp albums/EPs, it would've been dope on the banging EPs he puts out every few months.

I'm probably in the minority (especially here because I know OKP hates some Swizz) but both of their songs are dope.....and I kinda want that Nas/Swizz collab album.

The first one is 1 zone locked into it....that shit is rare. This is truly a bunch on different Nas's put together and I'm cool with it.

It’s gotta be a ego thing. Nas definitely got the wrong people on his team or he just don’t listen to them. These beats are throwaways. There’s nothing on this project that I would recommend. You can’t depend on Nas.
