  • Arranger:
  • Nasir Jones's controversially untitled LP follows the impressive trifecta of GOD'S SON, STREET'S DISCIPLE, and HIP-HOP IS DEAD. This latest record leans on gritty, often metallic production and a mission of personal catharsis, often in congress with a current sociopolitical pointedness. Nas's most aggressive eviscerations are saved for the hard-rocking rampage of "Sly Fox," which stands up for Ludacris and other MCs assaulted by conservative pundits, as if playing the role of the protective older brother. But for all the album's candid nihilism, perhaps the most moving moment is still one of hope, as articulated on "Black President." Poignantly sampling a 2Pac lyric about it seeming "heaven sent," Nas ponders the pros and cons of Obama's ascension. And the use of Shakur's words serves as a way for Nas to communicate a message to the fellow free-thinkers who inspired him, but who didn't live to see such progress in the face of relative chaos.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.96) - Ranked #43 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "[A] battle-rhyme tour de force..."

XXL (Magazine) - "Nas delivers a 360-degree thesis on the African experience in America....With his unbridled originality and powerful prose, Nas delivers the perfect album for today's imperfect world."
