Nastradamus [Explicit Lyrics]

( 8 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
When Nas first appeared on 1994's groundbreaking ILLMATIC, his post-Rakim MC skills and street-level realism helped usher in a fresh "New York state of rhyme" that set the stage for the ascendance of future "street" stars, from Jay-Z to Mobb Deep. Five years later, he's one of the few rappers who can sip Cristal with Puff Daddy while staying credible in the Queensbridge Projects that bore him. On his second album of 1999, Nas hooks up with a diverse list of artists and producers -- Mobb Deep, Ginuwine, Timbaland, DMX and Tricky producer Dame Grease, DJ Premier, Track Masters -- and continues his mission of bridging his thug-playa persona and QB roots. Quality cuts include:...

Five years later, he's one of the few rappers who can sip Cristal with Puff Daddy while staying credible in the Queensbridge Projects that bore him. On his second album of 1999, Nas hooks up with a diverse list of artists and producers -- Mobb Deep, Ginuwine, Timbaland, DMX and Tricky producer Dame Grease, DJ Premier, Track Masters -- and continues his mission of bridging his thug-playa persona and QB roots. Quality cuts include: "Life We Chose," which sets a high roller-warrior boast to some string-soaked '70s blaxploitation soul, and "Come Get Me," a gunslinger dare that gets its ammo from Primo's D&D Studios sound. Throughout NASTRADAMUS, bullets fly and bodies pile up on tracks that unfold like hip-hop mob vignettes. The chorus to the haunting "Shoot 'Em Up," goes, simply enough,"kill, kill, kill/ murder, murder, murder." But Nas is more powerful at telling stories than felling foes, and his best tracks always filter his tales through poignant perspectives. So the toughest thing here is also the sweetest: "Project Windows" sees Ronnie Isley plaintively riffing on Aretha Franklin "looking out of my project window/makes me feel so uninspired" as a scarred, sentimental Nas looks back on growing up too quickly in the Bridge. But if all these hard truths can get a little hard to handle, Nas's hookup with Timbaland and Ginuwine, "You Owe Me," is a bumpin' club nugget that'll satisfy thugs and shorties alike. NASTRADAMUS proves that for all the gun-talk survivalist dreams of a thug poet, nothing riles the masses like a party thump tempered with a lil' ghetto realism.

    ITS NOT NAS

    my review is about nas's change. you could clearly hear that this lp, isnt nas-like. of course it aint gon' compare to illmatic, but you can hear a huge difference. on illmatic, it was written, and i am...you could hear the lyricism. but on nastradumas, i wasnt impressed with the lyrisms. this is not an commerical/pop lp. you could clearly hear it. what makes this lp poor is, the lyricism (lack of depth and creativity). there are some tracks that are hot like "shoot em up" and "project windows". *that intro/outro with moore sucked"* but all in all, its a 3.

    What are you thinking!?

    This is by far the worst Nas album made! its not second best either, It Was Written or Stillmatic would be 2nd. I dont know what you are thinking giving this album props? It is commercialized and pop its not the Nas we all know from Illmatic and It Was Written. This is Nas as a wanna be pop star. For god sakes he sings his own hook in Nastradamus which is the worst song on the album next to Big Girl. If you wanna here good rap dont listen to this please if want to her good rap buy Illmatic or Stillmatic dont get this please.

    IT'S JUST NOT NAS!!!!!

    I've been a fan of Nas for a very long time, since the days of ''Live At the BBQ''. But i think that it is safe to say that this latest offering by Nas is simply not his best!It seems as if he is only after the money now, and it's making his art suffer. i won't say that I'll never buy another Nas Album, but he'll have to do al hell of a lot better next time around! P.S.: We Want Nasty Nas Back!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nasty nas, to esco, to escobar, now he's nastradamus.

    Nas is the best rapper, and his cd nastradamus is off the hook because his lyrics in his songs all sound good in this cd. Nas keeps getting better and he's rising to success. I think nas is also really good looking and he's really talented. To me all his cd's are great, because the songs keep your head bopping while you blast them on your speakers.nastradamus is my fav right now, because i like what he has to say. So pick up his newest cd nastradamus.

    Natradamus is the Best!

    Nastradamus is the best cd i have heard yet.Nas is awsome. His songs like Nastradamus,Some of us have angels, and Life we chose are hot. You should buy this cd at once, and if you don't you're going to miss out on the best music yet!
