Yesterday, Nas' 10th solo album, Life Is Good, hit stores. The project finds the Queens MC in a lyrical zone, bringing his approach back to his early days getting personal on many of his songs. He's been building up towards the release for quite some time since announcing the title last year, and has been doing a promo run that includes performances on late night TV as well as on the ESPYs. Critics have praised the album, and XXL even gave it the rare XXL rating. Fans, too, seem to be enjoying the set, based on comments on sites and Twitter.
