The Richard Pryor/Slick Rick Sampling “Cops” is the only serviceable track on this album. “Cops shot the kid” is an infectious summer banger sprinkled with classic east coast sound. All the other tracks on this project fall short or are simply trash. It’s a disappointment considering Nas’s multi year hiatus and the involvement of Atlanta GA’s “The Dream... and of course Kanye West. After the elegant and underrated Life Is Good album and Nas’ string of magnificent cameos on Rick Ross’s and other’s albums I was foolish enough to believe that Nas was no longer capable of putting out a wack album. That belief was as misplaced as the run-on sentence Inscribed prior... This Album is gotta be something out of the twilight zone...It definitely isn’t the classic I was expecting. Especially since it’s only 7 tracks...I was expecting 7 tracks of Nasir Jones MC/Song Crafting Artisanship at its finest. Maybe Nas is tired of the powers that be under-appraising his talents so he is content to sit back, enjoy his Moscow mules and pull his punches with his projects. Whatever the case may be, just know that this project has no hustle, mad relaxin, but unfortunately, it falls short of striving as well.
