Will the new Nas be any good?

Either one of these Africans got their hands on a copy of the new Nas album and is leaking it one track at a time, or maybe the label itself figures Nas can do Lil Wayne (and also Terminate on Sight?) numbers by giving away damn near the entire thing for free in advance of its release. Every time you turn around these days, there’s some new Nas shit hitting the Internets.

Lazy as I am, I couldn’t bring myself to download any more than the first few of them. But I’m a lazy motherfucker. Sometimes, I won’t even get up to turn on the TV when I can’t find the remote, even when I’m sober. I’d rather just sit there and enjoy the silence. I figured it would probably be easier to wait until the entire thing leaked (this has gotta happen any day now, right?) and download it all at once.

Fortunately, I was surfing the Internets just now, and I came across a zip file with seemingly all of the new Nas shit in it, nine tracks in total. What follows are my thoughts on the joints in this folder.

Without further ado:

Black President

The joint from the mixtape with the lame-ass 2Pac sample. Is this gonna be on the album in same form that it appears on the mixtape (though presumably without any bullshit scratching or anything on it)? The more I listen to this, the more it sounds like some shit Will.I.Am would have come up with. Yes we can!

Breathe

I think I read somewhere this isn’t actually gonna be on the album. Which is good. This is some nasty R&B Mint Condition sounding shit. Was Nicolay involved with this? These lyrics might not have been that bad over something a bit more hip-hop sounding.

Fried Chicken

My new favorite rap song evar. Though I should note, as I mentioned the other day to people who are bored enough to read my Twitter, that, if I was a rapper, I would have been made a song about fried chicken. Look at how many songs there are about smoking weed. Fuck smoking weed. Listening to Nas and Busta’s raps on this, you can tell this isn’t a matter of mere provocation. These guys obviously love fried chicken. I’m sure many would argue that was self-evident, with them being black and all. Fucking racists.

Hero

The Polow da Don joint from the mixtape. It’s actually grown on me since I first heard it a couple of weeks ago, even though it was produced by Polow da Don. Was this also a preset in Garage Band? If so, I might need to pick up a copy of Garage Band. Fuck this blogging shit. Anybody want to spring for a copy of Garage Band for me? My pockets are a little bit light right now.

N.I.G.G.E.R.

On the other hand, I wasn’t even that big a fan of that one song Toomp did with T.I., let alone the limp bullshit he’s done. The fact that T.I. doesn’t even work with him anymore should have been a sign to Nas. That’s why Nas doesn’t have as much money as Jay-Z. Things that would be obvious to most people just don’t seem to occur to Nas. I read on, I think, MTV the other day that Nas was dropping “Be a Nigger Too” from the album because he didn’t want too many dreaded n-word records on the album. I’d much rather have that on the album than this. That song was hilarious.

Nigger Hatred

This is gonna be the intro? I probably would have liked it better if it wasn’t almost a capella.

Queens Get the Money

Wait, what the fuck is this? Another Nas-rapping-over-a-piano joint? Why? On this one in particular, Nas’ raps don’t seem to align rhythmically with the piano mess in the background. On the one hand, it sounds like he’s impassioned to the point where he can’t be bothered to mind the backing track, such as it is. But on the other hand, it just kinda sounds like a mess. I can’t imagine I’ll be playing either this or “Nigger Hatred” back very many times once I actually get my “special critics version” of this album.

Sly Fox

Another one of my favorites, right up there with “Fried Chicken,” the limp-sounding rock guitars in the chorus notwithstanding. Nas goes in re: Fox News. It’s hilarious in a High Times kind of way. You’ll recall that Bill O’Reilly was trying to throw Nas under a bus back when he was scheduled to perform at Virginia Tech in the wake of that incident where that sex-starved Chinaman shot all those people. I wonder if Bill-O’s gonna do a segment on this. I haven’t watched an episode of the O’Reilly Factor since forever.

You Can’t Stop Us Now

If I was a producer, I don’t know if I could handle the fact that I somehow managed to flip a sample even worse than the 2008-era RZA. This isn’t so good that someone in management over in Def Jam shouldn’t step in and be like, “You know what? RZA put this same record out as a single a few weeks ago, and hardly anyone even liked that. It’s probably in our best interest to just leave this off of the album. Nas doesn’t have a joint with Primo on this yet, right? Let’s get the two of them in a studio together. That’s usually a good idea.” Bol > everyone who works at Def Jam.

  • Pierzy

    Forreal, I was hyped for this album but I listend to the Green Lantern mixtape a few times and was less than impressed. I think NaS smokes too much weed. Then again, maybe it has nothing to do with the weed. Perhaps he just eats too much fried chicken…

    • moe

      the toomp beat on n.i.g.g.e.r. is insane…do i mean it like a slave master nigga? no im gangsta gotta eat rappers..nas kills it

      • Valdez

        This review is horrible!!

        who the fuck wrote this review anyway??
        whoever u are, it’s safe to just go kill yourself immediately!

        the nigger tape is the best hip hop has to offer period! this ids the type of shit we’ve all (real hip hop fans) been waiting for.

        slave and masters in crazy! the beat is str8 dumpin!

        there honestly isn’t one song on the nigger tape that i don’t like. even if the beat isn’t up to par, nas’ content negates that.

        this is the only thing i’m bumpin right now.

        i can’t think of one rapper in the game who is even close to being on nas’ level right now. his content & subject matter is blowing evryone’s favorite rapper out the fuckin water!!

  • 239allday

    I’m feelin every single track off the album that I’ve heard so far, and I hope that breathe trank is gon make the cut, shit fire. I don’t care if I hear the bonus tracks my nigga, I am going to cop this album. And bol you trippin if u think RZA’s version was not hot, that shit was tight.

    And the “Hip Hop is dead” album was off the chain!!!

  • http://truthmerchants.com PS

    “Be A Nigga Too” and “Fried Chicken” are my shit. I’ll be disappointed if one of em doesn’t make the album. haven’t heard the rest of them joints

  • jova

    Album will probably end up like Hip Hop Is Dead and have like 5 or 6 solid songs, but the rest is dull because of the production. Hopefully no Chris Webber on this album

    And I agree with you Bol….why not have Primo on the album, or just have him produce the whole damn thing!!!

      thanks deez nuts, no one here has ever heard of that song before.

      Good job buddy, I could just as easily get the lyrics to ether, this is the internet you know.

      Nas won that battle just to let ya know.

      • Pierzy

        Yeah he did. We talk about somebody getting “ethered” but you never hear someone getting “taken over.” Even Jay admitted it, although subtly: “The Joneses can’t keep up/maybe my nigga Nas, but I stronger after Ether”

      @ Deez Nutz

      KiLL urself and stop waisting our time.

  • unknown

    um im not sure if this guy knows what the hell he is listening to because if he actually paid attention to the lyrics more than the beat (even though we know nas doesn’t have a great choice of beats). He would realize in queens get the money song he is talking about 50 cent.

    “Niggas is still hatin/talkin that Nas done fell off wit Rhymin/He rather floss wit diamionds/They Pray/Please God let him spit that oozy in the army linen/that shorty doo-wop rollin oo-whops in the park reclinin/Take 27 MCS’s putt’em in aligning/they out of alignment/my assignment since HE SAID RETIREMENT/ Hiding behind 8mile/ and tha chronic GETS RICH AND DIES RHYMING/ This is Hot Science/Now add 23 more/From Queens to B-More/I’m ova there heads like a Belimic on a See-saw/ Now thats Porch Monkeys murdered at tha same time!”

    and in fried chicken, he uses the idea of fried chicken as referring to women.

    wow so um Byran Crawford, I’m pretty sure your about the age of 30 somewhere around that maybe a little younger than that but you seem to be one of those who people lupe fiasco refers to as dumb it down. I’m 17 and I caught on to this, I thought you would know that seeing you were around for biggie, big pun, big L, Pac, Easy E, Rakim, Mos Def, Ice Cube, Snoop, Bone Thugz n Harmony, Dead Prez, Saigon , Common, Talib, etc.(I could keep going). Let me guess your just one those guys who care about the dam beat, and what the artist is wearing, or as you say the comedy side of music as in (be a nigger too) and nothing more. Hell my generation might have killed hip-hop but it seems to me some your generation had a role in it too seeing you only talked about the beats in the songs you wrote about but dam i guess nas portrayed the nigger in you!

  • Zas

    Fuck Nas. Nas can li, li, li, li, lick deez nuts like a lollipop. His most recent cry for attention came with a jab at 50. Pleez. When you gotta try and jab at Fif it means your album is hitting rock bottom and you know you’re on your way out the game. It’s the last chance scream. Fif! Look at me and fight back so I got a chance to stay in the game! The only thing dead in Hip Hop is the career of the lame nigger nas… Rest in Peace bitch. Wrap a fence around your grave cuz there are a lot of brothas waiting to piss on it…

      • Zas

        Man, nas is not the rap game. Nas is the rap game’s lame. I’d rather not hear about you fuckin 12 year olds either. I’m pretty sure that shit is illegal. Go figure nasty nas is getting support from a dude that fucks 12 year olds. Stick to what you know best and keep luring in your friends with some Superman shit.

        Suck a dick nas. You still can’t defend a punk bitch that needs to rip Fifty for some publicity or call his album nigger and bail out on the title like a nigger. I thought it was appropriate because if I gotta pinpoint a nigger… it’s nas.

        • Dub Sac

          The idea that someone went at 50 for publicity is rich with irony.

          Besides, didn’t 50 start that shit back in the GRODT days (or before – I don’t really listen to 50)? It’s not like 50 hasn’t ever said shit to Nas.

        • Dickie Jr.

        Hey buddy why don’t you take Fifty’s dick out your ass for a second so you can be able to sit down listen to a real nigga (Nas) drop jewels.

        All of fifty’s fans act the same. Am I the only nigga that sees that shit. They act like they know fifty and if fifty don’t like another rapper, the fans automatically say fuck that nigga.

        You fuckin 12 year old (is that better)

        Bow down and kiss the muhfuckin ring!

        • jSeres

          I’m pretty sure I was bagging on you the other day about southern rap, but I have to say I agree with you on this post. However I like some of 50′s stuff and I don’t act like that, granted I’m not his biggest fan.

        I listen to real rap, son. The likes of classic like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Biggie, Jay, and other modern greats like Fif, Jeezy, T.I., and Luda. All of which still stand way above the garbage that nas puts on ya. I ain’t never seen a rapper as fucked in the head as nas and that makes him garbage. He’s a pussy, no class, confused like a bitch, nigga. I know plenty of tricks that act and think just like this bitch nas. He act out like a kid and rationalizes like a ho. Nas, do us all a favor and go to sleep…

  • Dub Sac

    I haven’t been super impressed with the songs out so far, so I hope they’re a primer rather than a slow leak of the actual album.

    I’ll probably get the CD regardless cause Nas usually has some good stuff, even on his weaker albums, and of all the MCs in the world today, I figure Nas deserves my money as much as anyone simply for trying something different. Even if his concepts come across as weak or under-developed, at least he has concepts behind his albums. Which I appreciate.

  • Simple like ABC, 123

    “Will the new Nas be any good?” Bol

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Good MC + bad beat and bad producer = It’s a “ok” album but not a classic album.

    Let’s be real, that’s why Nas’s 2 or 3 last albums sound like “alright” album!!!

    My opinion is that a rapper need just one or two producers for all the album, not a producer for each songs. 20 song, 20 producer??? Come on, that’s a “sandwich”

    Example:

    Nas’s “Hip-Hop is Dead” album = It’s good album but at the same time is a sandwich, to many producers

    Nas’s “It Was Written” album = Classic album because the primarily producer of all the album was “Trackmasters”.

    So Nas, do a “one producer” album with Trackmasters or with DJ Premier!!!

    • Simple like ABC, 123

      or combine Trackmasters with Dj Premier, that’s all!!!

      • Dub Sac

        Seriously! Go back to the Illmatic formula with Premo, Large Prof & Pete Rock. Keep it NY, cause that’s what your fans want. It’s not like Nas is going to hit some cross-over market just because he’s got beats from Kanye and will.i.am on his album.

  • sam

    to me this sounds like a dumb question. i think all the tracks so far are fire. even if the albums are “weak” as compared to others… its nas. i mean how many rappers do u get nowadays like him?? not too many

  • Bobby

    “Nas doesn’t have a joint with Primo on this yet, right? Let’s get the two of them in a studio together.”

    That’s what I was telling everybody when I first read the tracklist for this lp.
    No disrespect but, 3 tracks produced by Stic.Man vs. 1 joint produced by Salaam?!? That’s wrong and we all know that. Talk to Stic.Man when it comes to lyrics, but beats ?? (evidence: compare Nas “association” to Masta Ace’s “good ol’ love”). And who the fuck is J. Myers ? Not to speak of Mark Batson!! Mark Batson AND Mark Ronson ? WTF!?! 1 Mark British is enough I haven’t heard the Mark Batson joint, but fuck this guy. fried chicken can’t loose.
    But please get Nas in the studio right now. Give him some Premier tracks, some Buckwild or whatever and we’ll have some nice itunes bonus cuts in a minute.

    If its Nas and its wack,most heads shrink from admitting its wack.Rather they pretend its fire even though they know deep down its hot gabage.Tell you the truth Nas is an inconsistent rapper who cannot handle more than nine(9)songs on one album(excluding skits).NIGGER or whatever he decides to call is next album would be like another “hip hop is dead”album or at worst another”Nastrademus”album.Peace an hip hop head in Africa wrote this.

        I suspect you are white.If you are then you are uneducated.But if you are black the you are not only stupid but dumb.Zimbabwe is not the whole of Africa my brother.There are over fifty countries in Africa and Zimbabwe happens to be one of them.I m not from Zimbabwe[its in the southern part of Africa] nor do I live there.I live in one of the countries in the Western part of Africa.So your statement linking me with Mugabe or Zimbabwe only shows how little you know about the Dark Continent.You seem to be one of those ‘yeye’{I wont tell you the meaning of that word,go find out your self}people abroad who thinks the people out here are still in the cave-man era.Your media(most especially CNN)is responsible for your ignorance.All they show you is the ill side of Africa(racism will never die).We have beautiful structures out here my brother and most of us out here live good healthy lives.The comment was about Nas.I said he “is an inconsistent rapper who cannot handle more than nine(9)songs on one album(excluding skits)”.This you didnt refute.Rather you took an immature route by trying to insult me and the African people.Thats the way kids argue,and I would not be surprise if you are below eighteen.Peace

    All Nas needs is primo and he will be straight but he love to pick these off brand lame ass producers, shit is beyond me, even if this album is shitty, it will prolly still be better than what some of these rappers have made and that is the sad part, but seriously, this should be Nas’s last album.

    • B_EAZY

      I think this new material is the illest and most meaningful shit Nas has EVER done. Even if you don’t like Nas, I believe he deserves respect for being true to his self at all times, regardless of commercial appeal. Nas consistently puts himself on the line by speaking his truth as opposed to most “artists” that play it safe by pandering to the masses in the interest of record sales. It takes a REAL MAN to make songs like I KNOW I CAN and put them out as singles. As far as mainstream rappers go, Nas is the only dude I see that is taking a stand for BLACK CULTURE.
      RESPECT to that BROTHER!! And he’s going in crazy on the lyrics and FLOWS. HIP-HOP LIVES!!

    Once again, Bol is expecting Illmatic. He listen to too much rock music so he don’t know what’s hot in rap anymore unless it’s old Biggie. Can’t blame you though, but when you compare this shit or even Terminate on Sight to the new Lil Wayne, both albums utterly destroy that shit with just 2-3 songs. The shit that Nas saids actually has meaning.

    And the whole thing about Jay having more money than Nas is probably true, but if you think about Jay’s legacy as a lyricist and rapper….he’s finished. He dropped two subpar albums after The Black Album. Cats abandon concerts because he headining it. His protege is a jerk off who also has concert issues. Lil Wayne is outshining him lyrically….jesus christ. How is he going to make more money going forward if people don’t give a fuck about him? I guess Beyonce is going to foot that bill and pay for his debts.

    And Nas don’t need no Primo what the fuck is wrong with yall niggaz man. Primo is doing pop shit right now. He don’t make hip hop beats anymore. He aint been hot in ages. Niggaz act like we still living in 1995 damn.

    Prodigy was right man. Rap just aint for everybody. Unless you grew up in NYC in the 80s, you need to listen to some rock or country or something. Bol listens to rock and he likes Biggie at least but the rest of yall niggaz need to quit listening to rap so the shit can stop being so fucked up.

      How can you tell people to stop acting like it’s ’95 and then say anybody who didn’t grow up in the NYC 80′s should stop listening to hip-hop? And saying that Bol is out of touch with what’s hot in hip-hop, like Nas should be doing “what’s hot.”

      I don’t understand the point you’re trying to make. Cause those 80′s babies would be reaching adolescence during that ’95 year you’re telling everyone to snap out of. Are you just saying that Primo is no longer the man to go to for that feeling? And most of the MCs that came up in the 80′s and 90′s aren’t really “hot” by today’s standards.

      Just asking…

    **Shaking my head**….I’m looking at some of you clowns like ya’ll are bad little kids….like I’m not even mad….I’m just kind of disappointed….like I wouldn’t even spank ya’ll I would probaly just tell u stand in the corner for a minute in timeout….let me explain something to ya’ll Nas might have slipped on a few of beat selections (yes he should have gotten primo) and all that but make NO MISTAKE nas is bringing that shit right now….what do you want from him?….no seriously tell me…..c’mon tell me…..u want some bubble gum snap shake your ass shit?….go elsewhere pa…if you actually took the time to LISTEN and I mean LISTEN to the words you would know he bringing that shit….there’s a gap in this shit right now….and the gap is SUBSTANCE……I don’t mind listening to some other shit here and there to break up the monotony trust me I dont….but when you want ‘that shit’ you know it’s only a few sources you gonna go to….basically what I’m saying is don’t read what someone wrote and believe that shit…..listen to the joints in full and make your own damn decision aight….the god is out….

    Hey all ya’ll are pussies for hating on Nas.
    Nas is the only real nigga that’s still in the game.
    All the other pussies(including Gay-z)
    are obsessed with getting money,and cars and shit.

    it aint about the money and cars,
    its about spreading his voice to the whole world.
