When was the last time you heard your boy Nas rhyme Can't Forget About You by Nas 1

We cleared the rights for this sample with Nat King Cole’s estate, afterwards when they heard the track the estate called and said they would love to hear me rap over some Elvis

It was a true honor

I love the new album, the flow is great on every song. I am a trapped in the 90’s aggin and am very pleased as a fan. We are just about the same age so I can relate to the different subject matter etc. Quality all around, please continue making heartfelt, focused, dope albums, I appreciate it and your contributions to the game.

More love to Nas,strong delivery and raw instroz.Sumthing these modern days rappers can’t do.However,I thought his lyrics weren’t any different from these other rapper.Too much bragging about money,cars,pussy and all these rappers talk about.Different from the Nas we know and similar to all these rappers.Ofcourse the message of the album was he made it n is chilling but he coulda found a more poetical way of saying it rather than straight prose.Shoutout to Nas though,one of illiest alive!!!peacey

Hey Nas,

     Love from Uganda. Am so glad u still alive and can still bless us with yo flow. Am blessed to appreciate the depth of the meaning of your lyrics and your world view even when we from 2 different places (geographically). Only u and Hov could share a table (and a mic) with BIG, Pac and Rakim. Without going  into dramatics we hip hop heads here consider u the best mc/ rapper alive...... and am a Jay fan too but it is what it is Nas u the SHIT, u the ILLEST. word , peace.

I think Nas is the rap equivalent to M. Brando, the greatest pure talent the game has ever seen. He is controversial, easy to hate and despise becuase he does not conform and bucks the very system that made him who he is. While Nas like Brando has not always utilized his talent as “consistently” as everyone demanding fan would like. He has done the most with the least, meaning album releases. Brando owned the 50’s, made his imprint then dissappeared. Then he returned in the 70’s with only 2 films and again redefined and changed the genre of acting again. Nas, I believe will do the same as his career extends. Like Picasso, Nas genius work/magnum opus was released early in his career never to be equaled or repeated, but when he is ready and inspired, he will produce another body of work that will remind everyone not only of his greatness, but why he is cut from a different cloth that can’t be made again.

Nas thanks so much for new album I love it. I don’t have many favorite artists or rep them but your my favorite rapper of all time and I find it necessary to support you on sites like this. I love Life is Good its a trip back to the 90’s and the sound is so nostalgic. Keep doing what your doing homie.

Sho ya right. An eagle soars, so I see the eagle like some omnipotent one. You can’t see from the ground, young caterpillar, what the eagle sees from the sky.

Caterpillar = Fake ass niggas
Eagle = Real, The Great People

Why should he listen to posers? He’s been through more than you could ever imagine. So why should he listen to people like Lil Wayne? Nas grew up in the hood.

A caterpillar can’t understand what an eagle sees or comprehends so how can a caterpillar give an eagle good advice? better yet, why would an eagle listen to the advice of a caterpillar? The caterpillar is at best lunch for the eagles, but in reality too small of a prey to even reach the eagles dietary need.

I swear a good analogy to this is an eagle is a world changer. It soars over the skies seeing all choosing what to do with it. while a catepiller strives along doing its own thing to control the food it gets and shelter it can have.

Violet von Tesla

An eagle is on a whole other level than a caterpillar, I don’t think it’s meant to say that the caterpillar type people are not as good as the eagle, just not on the same level. It’s about not caring what certain people have to say just because you don’t actually care about their opinion in the first place because they are not your equals, they don’t share your vision or understanding of the world. An eagle has perceptions spanning the entire sky, while a caterpillars perceptions are just lower to the ground and smaller to the eagle. To the caterpillar his perceptions are just as vast as the sky the eagle sees, but to the eagle it is nothing.

Dope man!

Seems inspired y Nietzsche to me. Eagle and serpent perspectives.

caterpillars represent a transformation but the result is still an insect even if it is more beautiful and has flight.

Eagle is a symbol of transformation in Alchemy; represents perfection and pure knowledge.

While Truman was in office, he didn’t run the show it was really hoover, the director of the FBI, who made things work. He also compiled a list of 12,000 Americans to detain during “wartime concerns”…sounds familiar to today…thanks Nas!

He means the move “The Truman Show” where Jim Carey plays a guy who, unknown to him, is living in an entirely made-up world full of actors and actresses, and his entire life is being filmed and watched as a tv show.
