    My personal favorite would have to be... *drum role* "God's Son". In my opinion a perfectly balanced album, to me this is Nas in his artistic prime. So many gems, its undeniable, "Dance", "Heaven" and then counters with "Warriors", and "Mastermind". Not to mention the beautiful visuals that "Thugs Mansion" brought us, its as if Pac was right there in the booth with him. Every ghetto school was playing "I Can" during assemblys and talent shows at that time, taking nothing away from the genius of the song itself. Combine that with the radio success that was "Made You Look" and you get... Simply a classic.

    IT WAS WRITTEN...Great production, his flow is insane and he goes so hard on that album. Also he has great singles like "Street Dreams", "If I Ruled The World
    (Imagine That)", and "The Message."

    Why does everyone hate Nastradamus so much?
    Nas still came through with that flame
    It has quite a few classic tracks on it and real nice production

    I don't hate it, and I agree that it has a few classic tracks, but overall it is comfortably his weakest album i reckon.

    I agree about God's Son... Definitely one of my favorites. Although my favorite Nas album after Ilmatic would have to be It Was Written.

    My favorite Nas album will always be I Am...Just personal album for me. It was the first Nas album ever heard completely back in 99 with DMX. NYC was popping.
