    Nas is definitely a top 5 rapper of all time...but this is completely dreadful. Only songs I can bare to listen to are the don and nasty. The beat selection is weak and the lyrics are nothing special.

    Nas once again reminds us that as long as he's got one mic, lifee--and hip-hop--are beyond good. [#254, p.87]

    On Life Is Good, he's lyrically and musically rich as he's been for years now.
