    I don’t expect the album to get huge sales because SMART music usually never gets big sales. Also it seems like the album has no Pop influences so that’ll also bring it down but who cares as long as the music is good I don’t care about the sales.

  6. knowledge is key

    Well none of Nas’albums have a pop sound and he always has a smart message and he still goes platinum/gold plus! But sells should not be a concern because the msuic is sure to be fire, very creative and a new sound!

    Nas fell off after Kelis caught him cheating and divorced him. Plus he comes off fake to me now. Talking all that “positive, change the world, we are one” bull ish, yet he’s cheating on his wife while she pregnant with ghetto tricks. What kind of sh!t is that? He’s not real.

  13. wow...horrible

    @ cuhZAMM…Nas is not you father he can’t raise you and you have no f*cking idea what Nas did and who is the ghetto tricks Mr. Know It All? If anything Kelis was the most ghetto hoodrat Nas could have associated with! Do you even know what the f*ck your talking about or is TMZ and the gossip blogs your source! Fell off please Nas been ripping the mic since 91 and if you expect this man to guide you on what is “positive” well guess what maybe you need a father figure to help you grow…get off of Nas d*ck and grow some balls!

    Nas is not real to those who look for him to be their moral mouth piece instead of looking at these entertainers as human beings! The almighty rightous ones always get on blogs and judge these entertainers because they are lost and misguided in their own real lives! Now that is not real to look for the next man to show you the way! Besides the haters are using Nas’ divorce as an excuse to diss as if Nas gives a damn about their opinions besides the haters are coming on posts checking for him he is not checking for you! DR May 18, 2010 now this is REAL MUSIC!

  15. The trick is Kelis

    Well since people want to come and judge Nas how about I judege Kelis. Kelis screwed many in the music industry and now she screwing athletes while still married to Nas…if that ain’t a trick for you? She was a pigeon before Nas and she is a pigeon now! Nas should have known better because he was warned about this bird! Kelis is no innocent party!

    Nas is is one of the only rappers with 7 platinum records count em longevity of over 15 years hip hop has fallen off not Nas dumb niggas wanna hear ring tone rap. Furthermore Nas offer kelis 60000 a year in child and spousal support If any thing Kelis is a deadbeat trying to live off her ex husbands money her career is over one hit wonder Nas was and is the best thing to ever happen to her.

  18. REGGAE LOVER

    UMMM… YEAH.. BASICALLY DAMIAN MARLEY IS THE BADDEST MAN IN THE BIZ RIGHT NOW.. AND THE ALBUM IS GREAT. NAS DID A GOOD JOB KEEPING UP WITH HIM. EVERYTHING DAMIAN MARLEY TOUCHES IS JUST AMAZING. SO YEAH, FORGET ABOUT ALL THAT OTHER CRAP. THE ALBUM WILL DO GREAT REGARDLESS OF SALES AND WHATEVER. AND LIKE SOMEONE SAID PREVIOUSLY.. ITS NOT MEANT TO BE POP AND PLAYED ON THE RADIO ALL THE TIME. THAT CRAP JUST COMES AND GOES.. LOOK AT DAMIANS OLD ALBUMS… THEY STILL SOUND AS FRESH AS THEY DID ON DAY 1. GOOD MUSIC YOU CAN LISTEN TO MULTIPLE TIMES AND IT STILL AMAZES YOU, POP MUSIC GETS OLD AS SOON AS YOU GET TIRED OF THE HOOK. WE NEED MORE MUSIC WITH DEPTH, LAYERS. EVERYTIME YOU LISTEN TO A GOOD REGGAE ALBUM, YOU CAN LISTEN TO JUST ONE INSTRUMENT AND BE IN AWE THE WHOLE TIME. THEN LISTEN AGAIN AND HEAR ANOTHER INSTRUMENT, AND BE JUST AS AMAZED. PS. TRACK 8 IS GREAT WITH DENNIS BROWN’S OLD WORK, WHAT A LEGEND.
