Is "I Am..." an Underrated Album

Wed, Jun 6, 2012 at 4:16 AM By: Fr@nk_DaDa

Many critics have called I Am... one of Nas's weakest efforts however i disagree. I believe it has a nice mix between Illmatic znd It Was Written with notable tracks like "NY State of Mind Pt. 2" "Small World" "We Will Survive" "Hate Me Now" etc. Remember the album was supposed to be called I Am...The Autobiography as a double disc, so we will never know how amazing that album could of been if it never leaked. I just feel Nas got a lot of backlash for an album that didnt deserve it(i dont think any of his albums derserve that in my opinion). Whats ur opinion though. I want u to be free to share and express ur opinion!

    No complaints here. Ever really.. I'm a longtime fan. I'm conscious. I'm awake. So it resonates with me.

    i hate revisionist historian. the album when it came out was basically getting praised by most (not all but most) critics. it was getting 4 outa 5 more than lower scores. it is the album that introduced a lot of fans to nas. selling around 5 million worldwide ( not that sales matter to me). now suddenly everyone has forgotten about the critical and commercial response and are believing the words of jay-z on takeover.
    i am not saying that it is a classic, but its a very good/great album. ny state of mind part 2,nas is like, undying love favor for a favor, hate me now, small world are all songs other rappers wished they had in their catalog, in other words classics. we will survive, money is my..., ghetto prisoners, you won't see me tonight, life is what you.... are good songs, so that leaves around 2/3 songs that are weak out of 16. THIS IS A DOPE ALBUM, plus it has aged well!!!!

    the only album i beleive could be is weakest album his nastrodamus, but even that was hot, nas loves to experiment, and being a artist is nothing wrong with that

    I am... was a classic, people are just to simple minded to understand that.
