    And Nasty Nas strikes again with another platinum WORTHY album, which many artists never are WORTHY but go platinum anyway. Nas tells little ghetto children to follow their dreams, dedicated songs to his mother who recently died, and had a song with Pac. Pac who died six years before, beefed with Nas and Mobb Deep, and Nas forgives and forgets it all, to feature 2Pac & J. Phoenix in ThugzAnd Nasty Nas strikes again with another platinum WORTHY album, which many artists never are WORTHY but go platinum anyway.

Pac who died six years before, beefed with Nas and Mobb Deep, and Nas forgives and forgets it all, to feature 2Pac & J. Phoenix in Thugz Mansion N.Y. And all of this in the midst of the Nas - Jigga feud that Nas won and Jigga the fake ass n**** had to hope for forgiveness for sucking ****. Nas followed Stillmatic with his 4th instant classic album that won the feud. At this point, Nasir Bin Olu Dara Jones should be a household name everywhere. Expand

    By far my favorite album from Nas entire career at this point. Though production is not stellar, it certainly isn't lacking as compared to previous albums. Lyrically its by far one of the best in hip hop and Nas' career

    God's Son feels like a collection of b-sides rather than a proper album. The beats are not consistent throughout the album and as a result it meanders all over the place. There are definitely some goods songs on God's Son but the filler kind of ruins the album as a whole. Nas even throws some of his discarded, "b-side" lyrics into "Book of Rhymes" and ruins what otherwise could have been aGod's Son feels like a collection of b-sides rather than a proper album.

Really Nas - you were so lazy that you couldn't write some new lyrics for this dope beat by Alchemist? Unfortunately, for me this album marked the beginning of the end for a great artist. Expand

    Nas doesn't ruin a decent beat, but rarely is he able to improve one.
  2. The nice thing about God’s Son, although it isn’t fantastic or at the level of Stillmatic, is that it honestly doesn’t feel rushed. Nas is responsible for the lyrical content of the album, and it, like his previous releases, is nearly flawless.
  3. A welcome return to form.
