explain please, i'd love to hear your reasoning. or are you not man enough to sincerely and candidly defend your taste on an anonymous forum?
The repetitive soft jazz beats can shine on their own, only when Nas' monotone voice isn't ruining them
The lyrics are good for a 19 year old only, except they're not interesting and actually quite naive
The best moment comes when with the feature of AZ, and that says a lot about Nas
It's not bad but not even close to one of the best of the 90's
ok kid, its the best. there's nothing else worth your time. infact, there's not really any point for you to be discussing music since you already have heard the best. please leave

It actually is highly influential, at least from a production standpoint. It pretty much led to the advent of rappers getting several different producers on their albums. Before then you had maybe 1-2 or 3 producers max on one album. What Nas did back in 94 has basically become the norm, just look how many different producers guys like Kendrick use. Nas' flow is also highly influential but I won't argue that with you.
>posts highly regarded album
>"I think it's overrated/shit!"
People who have this anywhere near their top 100 albums might as well just put a sign on their head that says "I'm a pleb who refuses to dig deeper into electronic music."
most overrated album of the most overrated genre
prove me wrong that this isn't the most overrated shit ever to sell more than a million copies
Without this album one of the greatest lyricist of this time wouldn't exist.
>tfw mudshit born mid 90's in queens and still never able to enjoy this era of nas and the likes
You do know most people only have this in their top 100 because it helped them get into more electronic music, right? It's in no way the best, but is an accessible stepping stone into its genre.
