Nas' "Nasir" Album Draw The Adulation And The Criticism On Twitter
Escobar season has begun.
Nas-11th studio album, Nasir, was unveiled at a listening party under the Brooklyn Bridge on Thursday (June 14). It features seven tracks and Kanye West in the role of executive producer, the Illmatic legend of the follow-up to 2012's Life Is Good, is already receiving rave reviews on Twitter.
The word "classic" is thrown around like rice at a wedding.
Several Twitter users were impressed by the Slick Rick and Richard Pryor samples in "Cops" and praised 'Ye's production skills.
