1. Album Intro- Very Creative and innovative 4/5

2. The Message- Classic Nas Escobar at his finest. A lot of imagery and smooth word play
5/5

3. Street Dreams- Solid track but jacking 2pacs beat then talking trash about beat jackers is
4/5

4. I Gave You Power- Classic In every use of the word.
5/5

5. Watch Dem #+$+*$- Subpar track is all i can say 2/5

6. Take It In Blood- Nice pickup from the previous track one of the underrated highlights from the album 4.5/5

7. Nas Is Coming- Solid Beat by Dre with Esco riding the beat trying to be Michael Corleone 3/5

8 Affirmative Action- This track is what the firm album should have sounded like.
5/5

9. The Set Up- See review of track 7 but with Havoc instead of Dre. 4/5

10. Black Girl Lost- Classic standout track because everybody knows a girl like this 5/5

11. Suspect- Above par track with Nas parallel parking on the beat 3.5/5.

12. Shootouts-Solid Track 4/5

13. Live #+%$+ Rap Classic, two of the greatest MCs ever going back and forth over a fire beat 4.5/5

14. If I Ruled The World(Imagine That)- Really Theres Nothing I can Say.
5/5

In conclusion this is a hit or miss album with fans and critics alike but this album has more hits than it does misses. Overall The album does not SUCK
It just suffered from the expectation of Illmatic 2 but why would he put out Illmatic 2 when you people didnt BUY it.

Ok...

How bout an HONEST anaylis

Intro -
Ok NaS now you're a slave?? Yea this SUCKS (plus AZ is on here
. )
0/5

The Message -
What message don't be a drug dealer... Thanks NaS
4/5

Street Dreams -
What a stupid hook... But its brilliant @ the SAME time (in a Lil Wayne type of way)
4/5

I Gave You Power -
The FIRST genuinley GREAT song on this album
5/5

Watch Dem Ns -
Watch dem Ns in the studio that told you this was a good idea
1/5

Take It In Blood -
Another pretty stupid song
2.5/5

Nas Is Coming -
Prolly the MOST UNDERwhelming record of the 90s... You get the BEST producer and the BEST lyricist in a room and this is the end result??
1/5

Affirmative Action -
Why do I have to hear AZ voice?? Then Cormega sounds like he wrote his verse in 92. NaS carried his weight, but my baby Fox stole the show (and my heart)
4/5

The Set Up -
Should have been the album title cause I was set up thinkin this album would be good. Another ******ed song about NaS Escobar and his fairytale drug dealer stories. Sounds more like a Mobb track
2.5/5

Black Girl Lost -
GREAT song... Kind of random tho
4/5

Suspect -
One of the WORST hooks EVER. Another song that sounds like a carbon copy of Mobb Deep !@+#.
2.5/5

Shootouts -
I like this one.
4.5/5

Live N Rap -
Its a good song, but in comparison to "Eye For An Eye" & "Give It Up Fast" its pretty UNDERwhelming (the OVERall theme of this album)
3.5/5

If I Ruled The World -
One of the BEST songs EVER
5/5

Overall -
3.25/5

NaS and his ******ed drug dealer stories get old pretty quick. Some of his best songs from that period aren't on the album (Silent Murder, Street Dreams Remix)

Nasty Nas > Nasir Jones >>>>>>>>> Nas Escobar >>>> minimum wage >>> AZ

That's exactly how I've always felt about that record.

Ridiculous album though.

How is the hook stupid? He took the whole idea of "Sweet Dreams" and applied it to the hood.
