iTunes Editors’ Notes

Street’s Disciple is a juxtaposition of the two aspects of Nas’ personality that have been warring for years: his focus, and his pompousness. With the multi-character storytelling of “Sekou Story” and the father-son blues of “Bridging the Gap,” Nas proves he's determined to push his music forward. At the same time, Street’s Disciple is lined with references to classic hip-hop, from the canonical samples of “American Way” and “Sekou Story,” to the beatboxing of “Virgo” (rap godfather Doug E. Fresh) and the tributes to Jam Master Jay (“You Know My Style”) and Rakim (“UBR”). Perhaps best of all is “Thief’s Theme,” a sequel to “Made You Look” that proves Nas still knows how to make a rock-solid street rap song. Following the soul-baring God’s Son, Street’s Disciple signaled the beginning of a new chapter in Nas’ career. Nas now has so much to say that his songs represent jam-packed collisions of concepts, observations, and poetry. The window into his soul was widening, and though he’s lost the concision of Illmatic, the new Nas is more fascinating and revealing than ever.

Customer Reviews

Street's Disciple (3.5 mics)

After still recovering from the tragic incident of Nas' mother dying, Nas comes back to the studio from a much different unique angle of his carrer. God's Son was in my personal opinion among Nas' best work on a par a personal matter and lyrically at his best since his early youthful days of Illmatic. Street's Disciple if anything is obviously a continuation of God's Son. The album overall lyrically is excellent and the production comes interestingly from not only people that Nas' has worked with before but is undenyably a different more rawer sound than anything Nas has recorded before. The sound that Nas' is aiming for, is definetly much darker than anything that we've heard before. If your a fan of Nas' or just deep psychological rap, then you will undeniably find something within these two CDs that you'll like. Nas' starts the album more on a political matter with "A Message to the Feds" significantly shorter than most Nas' tracks. To the influencial "These are our heroes" where he makes refrences to black individuals in popular culture. To the personal "Live Now" with an unknown artist named Scarlett and the well known Just a Moment. Where the first disc has a lot of songs that are quite noteworthy for the album, not necessarily all of them are quality Nas' songs though. To the second disc where the majority of Nas' tracks are darker for example of Suicide Bounce to the self produced U.B.R., Getting Married and the musically note worthy Me & You.

To the reviewer who said Kanye West only raps about hoes and drugs... what are you talking about? Kanye West has made some really good music. What rapper has written a song about Jesus and have it ride to the top of the charts? Also Diamonds from Sierra Leone sparked alot of interest in the problems of Africa and the Diamond Industry which became the influence to the movie Blood Diamond. The song Spaceship was also considered a great track in which West is speaking on the hardship of a life and how he wish he could just run away from the world which i know we have all done at some point in time. His third album Graduation was a great one and it made me feel good listening through it... which is something not every artist can achieve because everyone is hooked on the gangsta image. Now back to the point... this album from Nas is great as well and should be in every dedicated fans collection of rap or just Nas himself. The only way I can see someone not liking this is if they didnt like rap to begin with. Great album from a classic rapper.

Well thought out raps

These raps is tiiiiight yo. I love his lyrical genious and his slimy flow like a clam.

Beginning with his classic debut, Illmatic (1994), Nas stood tall for years as one of New York City's leading rap voices, outspokenly expressing a righteous, self-empowered swagger that endeared him to critics and hip-hop purists. Whether proclaiming himself "Nasty Nas" or "Nas Escobar" or "Nastradamus" or "God's Son," the self-appointed King of New York battled numerous adversaries for his position atop the epicenter of East Coast rap, none more challenging than Jay-Z, who vied with Nas for the...
