    First... off let me say this is not a conscious song... It is a personal song.

    Second... for those who say that Nas cant do this... Check Dance, Check, War, Check Last Real Nigga Alive.. This joint cant mess with Dance or War


    Third... the concept is tight, the beat and hook is ill, but Jay's flow is not on point, I dont understand wht Jay is tryin to do, if he just stuck with his regular flow, the song would have been crazy, but because of his flow It sounds like some amateur shit

    For some reason something sounds different about this album, something is different about Jay on his album. I think it was rushed, plus Jay said he didnt have any producers in the studio with him, maybe thats the difference.

    I disagree on some points...

    I do agree this is not a concious song, its a personal song....

    Dance was ehh, dope verses, wack hook.....nothing special imo....War was cool, but Nas wasnt telling us anything we didnt already know, .... "Lost ones" was like a peak into Jay's private life, the concept alone made it more interesting imo.....

    as for Lost ones....

    ..I think Jay rode the track like butter, using the slow flow fit for such an indepth song.... he switched the schemes for each verse, the patterns in the second verse were INSANE....especially the "be all you can be like the reserves, it on me(army)", I was like damn, the way he flipped that pattern into a punchline was ridiculous.....

    I havent heard the lp so I can't comment on wether Jay sounds like he rushed the material...

    Thats the point, on a song like this, you dont need to switch shit up. It distracts the listener. Its like, are you trying to prove your dope? Or actually tell a story?

    props for naming Last Real Nigga Alive...

    also Poppa was a player, Fetus, We Will Survive, One Mic, Drunk by Myself... damn OZ shut the fuck up...


    anyways, the song is far from top being in my top 20 fav. Jay-z songs. I thought the first verse was dope though.

    beat and the hook were nice.
