his legal name is Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones

Nas is short for Nasir

I was going to go to the one in NYC a few nights ago but the tickets sold out within 10 minutes of going on sale.

The only problem with the album is that the title track is the edited version and not the explicit. I found the explicit one, but obviously I can't put it on the actual CD.

It's Dark and Hell is Hot by DMX
The Score by Fugees
Doggystyle by Snoop Doggy Dogg
Illmatic by Nas
Me Against the World by 2Pac
All Eyez on Me by 2Pac
Cypress Hill by Cypress Hill
License to Ill by Beastie Boys
Liquid Swords by GZA
Reasonable Doubt... Vol. 1 by Jay-Z
The Infamous by Mobb Deep
Life After Death by Notorious BIG
ATLiens by OutKast

Again, that doesn't mean I don't like parts or specific songs on other albums... these ones are just more complete and easy to listen to without, say, skipping 5 consecutive tracks that should've just never been included...


Nice - I was gonna suggest ATLiens aswell. If you haven't, check out:

Soul Food or Still Standing by Goodie Mob
Beat Rhymes and Life - Tribe Called Quest

I just recently heard Lupe Fiasco's album - not bad at all.

Lupe is very talented no doubt but it gets annoying how people anoint him the next savior of hip-hop. He's good but not THAT good.

I want to hear a second release from him before I put Lupe anywhere.

That being said, his album was fantastic.

where im from, alot of people havent even heard of him, so i find him vastly underrated. went to his show at my school too, very good performance. he really seems to love his craft.


I have no doubt that he adores everything he does.

That being said, I can see him becoming either one of the great emcees or a flameout. I predict somewhere in the middle, around LL Cool J.
