To me this album is Cla**ic. I keep playing it over and over again.

Don't sleep on tracks like:
You Wouldn’t Understand
Back When
Stay
Cherry Wine
Bye Baby
Roses

Even the Anthony Hamilton and Swizz Beatz joints are not that bad.

Agree -Locomotive is 90s but still fresh.

Mr C - Stay and Bye baby those are the "introspective" songs. I bump all the songs you mentioned except Roses. Maybe it will grow on me. But as I said, I skip a few. It's not Illmatic where everything is dope from start to finish.

Well many people have argued over the years that there is a weak song on Illmatic ala One Time for Your Mind. Not weak, weak, but not up to scratch with the rest of the album.

This album already lost a lot of replay value but still I like Daughters & Locomotive best.

Here is some new DOPE NaS from DJ Khaled's tape. Teaming up with mufaken SCARface & DJ Premier. Produced by Justice League.

Bumped this again last night.. Decided to make my own CD leaving out Anthony hamiliton joint ( will drop this in the woodstock, heal the world make it a better place,  compilation disc) and summer on smash ( Trash box).. I thoroughly enjoyed it.. But then , i totally forgot about Nas when MOST OF MY LEADERS STILL DONT APPEAR ON STAMPS ( New Public Enemy came on).

This record has grown on me actually. I should probably make a my own mix too D, sounds like a good project. I will probably end up with only about 8 tracks though.

u should hear the contrast between the beat on ROses ( the intro sounded like a latin america soap opera score shit. Quite a few beats start like that but the God had too much to say and slick as ever with the words so i had to listen ) and when Public enemy came on on the playlist..   BLACK POND IS TOO SERIOUS THOUGH
