    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

    Nas' lyrics are nuts, they are great. I think this album is deffinetly up there with the rest of his stuff. He is by far one of the most talented rappers out there, he gives out educational rhymes along with a nice beat.

    The entire album is mind raveling. Nas is definitely in a league of his own by revealing the true entity of hip-hop or should I say, "street-hop". His lyrics are personal, truthful, and street. And at times educational. Nas is not commercial; but more like a rapper writing down his experiences on a note pad.

    This is heartfelt and touching in a way that most rappers don't connect now a days. It's good to know that a rapper still remember the struggles of life and remembers where he came from.

    This album was the bomb nas is great.god`s son is filled with clever ryhmes great stories and also a vunerable side it`s always good to see rappers have vunerable sides like the track about his mom dying it`s uplifting it`s heartbraking it`s hard to get your ears away from and the beats are ill.I support that man to the fullest and hope to see much more him in the future Peace!

    no one listens to nas the way i do. if i listen to other cds is just because i dont just want to have them hanging around. God son is an example of a superior lyrisist.

    Nas is the most intelligent rapper, besides Pac n Immortal Technique. This cd should be put in a category of rap honour all by itself. It'll be a sad day when Nas retires from the world of hiphop.

    Probably the best album Nas has ever made!!! And this is coming from a person who was introduced to hip-hop by "It Was Written" and fell in love with hip-hop because of Nas.

    This song is played to my 4 year old daughter every morning. So she know she can be what she wants to be. This song could be the anthem for all children, for all women, for all men to be the best that they can be. Good Job Nas

    Ridiculous, probably the best four song opener in hip hop in a long time.

    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

    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.
