He’s taken a hiatus and has come back with a masterpiece! With all that life has put at his feet in recent years, he’s put it all into his craft and the argument of who the best rapper is will definitely be reignited with this album. Life is Good brings lyrical content and plenty of personal confirmations, especially in reference to his saddening divorce from Kelis. If you’re wondering if he drops her name…yes he does! He’s back! If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to support real artistry and get the new Nas album! This is what Hip-Hop needs!
Before I go, I’m leaving you with a small excerpt from the album…and this is just from the intro; only the tip of the iceberg:
…who wasn’t the most faithful husband, revealed my life, you will forgive me, you will love me, hate me, judge me, relate to me. Only a few will, this how it sounds when you’re too real. They think it’s just music still. Well, I am a graphic, classic, song composer, music notes on sheets I wrote this piece, to get closure. Some of yall might know Kelis, this goes to her with love, also goes to yall to see, the craziest things already happened to me…so either you’ll be laughing at me or you’re laughing with me.
