This would make it the fourth of five G.O.O.D Music albums released in 5 weeks, coming after Pusha T’s “Daytona”, Kid Cudi and Kanye West’s “Kids See Ghosts” and “Kanye’s “Ye”, all overseen by Kanye West, and all seven songs long.
For his eleventh studio album which is coming after his 2012 album “Life Is Good”, the veteran Queens rapper Nas, whose real name is Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones, goes deep in a reflective mode on this new album which has, since its release, garnered all sorts of reaction from fans all over, ranging from “dull” to “dope”.
The seven-track project sees Nas call on the feature of Puff Daddy and 070 Shake on “Not for Radio”; Kanye West on “Cops Shot Kid”, one of the highly praised tracks on the album; Tony Williams on “Bonjour”; The-Dream with Kanye on the 7-minute long “Everything” and; The-Dream on “Adam and Eve”, while he goes solo on “White Label” and “Simple Things”.
With a recent revelation by the “Illmatic” rapper’s ex wife, Kelis, still making its round on which she alleged brutal physical violence at the rapper’s hands, “Nasir” takes a different view in the opinion of some of his fans, although Nas hasn’t addressed the issue.
Nonetheless, Nas’s flair is still evident in this new album, and Kanye West’s production skills seems to be gaining higher ratings with each release.
