    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.
