Our Review

Rather than retreat from the thematic weight of Hip-Hop Is Dead, Nas is even more ambitious than its predecessor. Some would argue that's not a good thing, yet the rapper’s ferocious intelligence and skill give the album a magnetic energy. It finds Nas taking on the right-wing media (“Sly Fox”), dissecting the controversy surrounding the use of the N-word (“N.I.*.*.E.R.”), and submitting an ambiguous, if impassioned, endorsement of Barack Obama (“Black President”). Even when Nas is at his most bizarre, he manages to find new ways to analyze the African-American experience. Witness him talking to his KFC dinner on the snappy Mark Ronson production “Fried Chicken,” or taking on the point of view of a cockroach on “Project Roach.” Musically, the best songs benefit from a bit of restraint. In “You Can’t Stop Us Now,” a tour through two-hundred years of black history is backed by a pensive sample from the Whatnauts’ classic “Message From A Black Man,” while the simmering sounds of “Testify” can barely conceal the narrator’s seething rage.

Beginning with his classic debut, Illmatic (1994), Nas stood tall for years as one of New York City's leading rap voices, outspokenly expressing a righteous, self-empowered swagger that endeared him to critics and hip-hop purists. Whether proclaiming himself "Nasty Nas" or "Nas Escobar" or "Nastradamus" or "God's Son," the self-appointed King of New York battled numerous adversaries for his position atop the epicenter of East Coast rap, none more challenging than Jay-Z, who vied with Nas for the...
