    just on some fun, I-got-a-new-theory type shit....

    the reason why Nastradamus was Nas's worst album was because he didn't have a concept track on it. On every other Nas LP there was atleast one concept track-

    Illmatic- "One Love"
    It Was Written- "I Gave You Power"
    I Am..- "Nas Is Like" or "Money Is My Bitch"
    Lost Tapes- "Fetus" (which was supposed to be on Nastradamus, see, if Nas and co. woulda put that track on Nastradamus like they supposed to, it woulda changed the fate of that LP...
    Stillmatic- "Rewind"
    God's Son- "Book of Rhymes"
    Streets' Disciple- "U.B.R."

    ^but if they put Fetus on Nastradamus, then Lost Tapes wouldn't be any good.

    well, I know, but some consider "Purple" a concept track, and The Lost Tapes aint an actual album, just previously unreleased shit throughout his career released together...

    Fetus was supposed to be on I Am... the album was originally intended to be a double disc, but it was released on that Death of Escobar/I Am.. Promo shit with Poppa Was a Player and shit.

    Life We Chose was fire. Album aint that bad, I actually think I am is his worst album. I am is to Nas, what Volume 2 is to Jay-Z. Just a bit too far out. Altho I Am has 2 of my fav songs, Still We Will Survive and Undying Love, as well as hate me now. Everything else is just unbearable.

    Nas is Like? Dr. Knockboots? I want to Talk to You? There's just too many good songs on that album.

    Shoot em Up is a concept track. As is Project Windows.

    i just been listening to this recently, and i would have to say that....project windows, shoot em up, last words (nas verse), god love us, big girl, new world, are all concept tracks..

    i think the reason its his worst album, is, there aint anything that hits hard on there, there aint anything that has the same impact that his other albums had, even the preemo track on here isnt that good, plus it sounds rushed cos it came out the same year as I AM, in general though, it is a good album, but it is his worst.
