Album 4 Album: A Look At Nas’ Worst Beat Selections

By: 05.07.10  •  99 Comments

Earlier in the week, Nas openly admitted that his procrastination and laziness was the prime factor in some of his beat selection being less than…well, Illmatic. Quite understandable as The N usually has a lot on his mind (with weed being 75% of the problem). But his lollygagging has cost him a classic album–or three. As one of the remaining vets who can still sell records off the strength of his lyrics first and foremost, he very well could have dropped a 5 Cig album every time if the production would have been proper.

Looking back at his discog, the decline is pretty evident to see as the years went forward and his stock continued to rise. With disregard to his numerous classic cuts, here’s Nasty Nas trying to flow to some pretty unremarkable musical pieces.
