"Life Is Good" Review

Wed, Jul 18, 2012 at 9:25 AM By: Fr@nk_DaDa

Yesterday, July 17, 2012, Nas dropped his 10th studio album "Life Is Good." I have to say, this album is very special and has to be the most emotional album and descriptive album i heard from Nas in a long time. The topics that were discussed on this album were topics we never heard Nas discuss before. Nas has grown as a person and has gone through many roadblocks in his life and expresses them through this masterpiece. I'm not going to go track by track to review 'Life Is Good' but i will summarize how i feel about the album. From start to finish this album has no dull moments or skippable tracks for me. The concept of album stays on target throughout and even though the topics are personal that he discusses, I still get the vibe that life is good for Nasir. The production is up lifting, melodic, and by the way this is some of the best production i heard Nas over in years(SHOUT OUT TO THE PRODUCERS!!) Anyway, as I was saying Nas gives you the feeling that even though he has been through many obstacles, he has learned and has become stronger because of those obstacles. Also, you got your main bangers in here that I would love to bump and blast in my car if i could drive(Only 16) "The Don" and "Summer On Smash." I've heard many people do not care for "Summer On Smash" but I love Swizz and Miguel on there. Nas still delivers on it and i will bump that track all summer hahaha. Another thing i would like to point out is that Nas's flow is very aggressive and i love it. He sounds hungry at 38 years young and proves he's still the G.O.A.T in my opinion. My top 3 tracks would have to be 1."World's An Addiction" his last verse on that track is insane and i love the concept of the track. 2. "Black Bond" a very good beat and Nas's flow and lyrics are insane! 3. "Roses" a track dedicated to Kelis, which is a lot more aggressive than "Bye Baby." I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on this album and i don't know why. I think the problem is that a lot of fans try to compare every album he drops to "Illmatic." That was in 1994 and it's 2012 now. Nas has evolved as a person and a artist. He's 38 and this is a grown man album that a lot of fans should enjoy and respect. I've also heard people put this album in his top 3 albums of all time which i think is ridiculous lol. I can't put this album ahead of "God's Son", "Untitled", or "Stillmatic." i give "Life Is Good" a 9/10 and put this as his 6th best album. Don't ask me how it's a 9/10 album and it's his 6th best in my opinion lol. It's very hard to rate Nas's albums so i try not to, but this album is amazing and is a must cop album. Support the Greatest Of All Time. Did you like it? Love it? Hate it? Please feel free to share your comments and post them below! #LifeIsGood
