    He better come correct. He sounded like he got gassed out on third round, carried to the 5th and decided to record an album after. Uninspired af. It’s like he tried to impress Kanye with his conservative views. This n----- forgets he’s from queensbridge and he’s talking about anti-vaccination and Fox News lol. The f--- you talking about. Don’t preach to me on some hog wash

    I mean, there's a certain anti-vax stance amongst most of the old-school rap isn't there due to distrust of the medical field/gov and their treatment of black people?

    Nas, Freddie and Royce to name a few have all made mention of it in some of their recent work. Not that I agree with it coz anti-vax is outright dangerous to play with, but I think it's a view Nas has had for a while now.

    Even on Stillmatic with What Goes Around

    At least Freddie makes it sonically pleasing, but that’s a very good point!

    I just feel like nas was never so inarticulate about it which makes it so off-putting

    If Jay can drop two mid - bad projects in a row and then come out with 4:44 I got some faith that Nas can do the same, although realistically I don’t think he will

    Will definitely listen to the full project with caution. Liking the sound of the single tbh, lyrically not that impressive though.

    We'll see. Even the single lacks that full power Nas lyricism.

    idk if i agree. i like this way way more than the kanye tracks. its pretty tight and polished. feels like nas but w a crisper production. good space for him 27 years into his career

    I only listened to a little bit bc I’m at work.

    while I agree that it’s definitely better than the Kanye produced stuff, I just feel like his delivery is off. I find Nas to be precise with his music. I feel like he’s not as tight as he was let’s say on Life is Good.

    but I shall give this a proper spin today with headphones!

    Looking forward to it. I feel Nasir wasn't a bad as people made it out to be. As a matter of fact, the biggest issue I had with the album was the mixing from Kanye which was subpar for his standards and made many of the tracks feel out of place.

    I'm also interested to see who's being featured on the album since Nas and Lupe are my two favorite rap lyricists and they've been in the studio together in photos.
