Nas? What is a Nas? I hope it is not rap. Why does it sound like a rapper’s name or group? Oh crap! It is hardcore hip-hop. His debut album Illmatic was released in 1994. What I discovered is that he uses multisyllabic internal rhymes.
This is just another album filled with obscenities. If Nas had not put in all the vulgarity, then I think I might have liked it. His voice is okay and I like the music. I like the rhythm of his lyrics, but I hate his lyrics. The album has a jazz feel to it. I think if you don’t mind hearing foul words, then you might really like this album. 5/10.
