If your a Nas fan you would automatically be listening to the lyrics!
N A S = G O A T !
The corny beat and chorus are intentional... he's saying look past that and listen... Gotta love Nas...
Hands down Nasir is the only reason i even believe HIP HOP will be relevant in 5 years!! it's crazy how the more simple your lyrics are results in major street cred/buzz!!smh Nasir keep spitting that fyre/truth!! 1
Deep shit, best rapper,so underrated ,unless u been bumping since illmatic
Average , Besides lyrical content(which is good) the beat sounds whack , the chick singing sounds cheap , overall it misses the emotionality and sincerity of the original.
Nas is one of the few artists whose album I will go out and buy each time he puts one out. But if this was the lead single I would be hesitant to spend my dough on this. The chorus and hook is questionable at best. His lyrics are always on point but this beat is disposable.
shit is ill smh
Your name says it all. Bet yr a broke ass nigga that wears those shitty skinny jeans
CANT WAIT TO BUY ANOTHER CLASSIC ALBUM FROM NAS
Wow really? The lyrics are on point. I question your idea of what is hot?
I love this beat!
Produced by Hit-boy smh. garbage
this is horrible..are we listening to the same track? come better Nasir
wow the new brave hearts freestyle
CLASSIC!!!!!!!!!!, NAS REALLY NEED NO ID TO PRODUCE HIS ENTIRE ALBUM
Listen a real Nas listen to his voice and block out the beat and all the other bullshit we close our eyes and picture what he saying. I've been like that since Halftime...
wow haha how could this change so much the first time I listened to it I hated it, and now I'm really liking it and this is coming from a huge nas fan
N A S = G O A T! U say ur a huge Nas fan but failed to listen the 1st listen? Gtfoh.
The greatest of them all Nasir Olu Dara Jones!
Second verse is whoa!!!
I'm feeling this joint! Grew on me. Nas' verse is ill!
growing on me.
Lyrically dude is insane - he literally makes everybody else in the game lyrically impotent!
I dig it a lot, both the hook and the verses
I can't believe people don't get the hook. How dumb can you be? lol
N A S = G O A T!
we get it - its just a little corny
good message. nas is spittin knowledge on here and on daughters
Listen to daughters amazing!
This shit gotta be a throwaway
good message...big Nas fan, but the beat & chorus not really a fan of..
Terrible. lyrics are wack, hook is wack, delivery is wack. He's a nice guy, but this song will get no play
You must be in your early 20nties or just under 20 years. U dont understand Hip Hop as yet
your song "black nigga lost,"....get the fuck outta here...this is a good song.
Sir Nas...... THE GREAT!
Nas is still great and niggas still hate! A vicious cycle!!
Nas...never afriad to do what others wont...THE G.O.A.T.,track is catchy...lyrics not even in question, so cuz its a positive song niggas dont like it?? ya'll niggas retarded
Nah, nobody hates beacuse it's positive, it's just fucking wack. Good positive song is something in the lane of Brown Skin Lady, but not this garbage.
EVERYTHING IS ON POINT!....except for the hook. But i get it. but still, jus aint feelin the hook
'i'm pregnant and don't know who the dad is but fuck you haters my ass is still the fattest'
well..this is just....gay...nas fell off...again, he's gone back to Nastradamus
Word. Dude is nearing the Wayne level of wackness. He dropped some of the most corniest lines ever of the course of the past 2 years. LOL @ those miserable lames saying you don't get it, what's there to get? These niggas still searching for excuses over this wack ass track.
you stupid mother fuckers think you need an education to comprehend the chorus? just kill yourself. "IM SO SMART I LISTEN TO NAS"
Agreed - it's Nas at his cornest. AKA Streets Disciple...Black Girl Lost part 1 was corny too!!
Nastradamus was underrated... I don't care what anyone says.
That album is near classic - youtube if and listen. Nuff younguns haven't even heard it coz they heard it was whatever... but it's hard!! One of Nas' best
@ jack Johnson: dude u need to get a education...
you just don't get it.
Fantastic!!! Those reality whores on TV need to hear this.
this song is lyrically on point. crazy joint. loving it
It's not remotely close to Black Girl Lost Pt1 but it's still hot!
Still the illest to ever do it!
God damn, your ass is so fucking sad and insecure.
Nas done did it again! Ppl need to get with the times
nas never dissappoints whatever the beat is!
This might be the worst Nas track ever. The Don and Nasty were straight fire though.
This nigga is a Beast
I will give it a 4 the beat is wack but Nas kills it....
Nas a motherfuckin Ghetto Monk!
Dope its some real shit..dont here no other so call superstar rappers addressing this issue..SALUTE great content!
This str8 for the hungry ass hoodrats who stay scheming for they pockets! Nas the Don'
GLAD TO SEE NAS BACK DOIN HIS THING...ONE OF THE HOTTEST TRACKS RIGHT NOW IN MY EYEZ
The chosen one! Nasir Olu Dara jones shit it's still Betta then all the other bullshit that's out!
I like it.
Its kinda like when someone takes a classic like a Beatles song and remakes it. Instantly, you are biased because you think it can't possibly be as good as the original. We have a classic to compare this to and unfortunately Nas does not deliver. The Chorus ruins it and since it starts the song, that sets the tone. The beat SUCKS and the lyrics are lazy. Whereas the original felt like Nas was just reporting what he was seeing in Queensbridge, heck maybe even family members, here it sounds like he was watching some reality show while reading the tabloids and that's where he got the idea for the song.
Here is where the song fails IMO. It is not a beat that you can bang to, not that its supposed to be, considering the content. As such, it should be a song where you sit and listen to it and it make you think and this doesn't, like I said, it is lazy lyrically, so it does not accomplish anything and Nas bastardizes the original by doing this.
Lazy lyrically. Man get out of here. This song go hard. Maybe you should listen again.
God damn, only 1 of 3 tracks was good, even if this ain't on the album. I got a feeling that I will love his good albums more than ever after the release of Life Is Good, I'm fearing that it could be his worst album since I Am..., if Train ain't good I don't know.
I Am... goes hard what you talking. His new album going be the truth. Man you talking out your ass god.
this is so horrible
Nas the motherfuckin Goat!!!! This is wack from a Nas standard joint but still better then Ghetto Techno and the rest of all the bubble gum rap bullshit we have now..
it looks like is working cause this dumbed down generation loves it. but the golden era not going take this. haha
this aint even nas this is just nas voice. he about sell out and do that nasdamus shit this last in career. he probably think you only got to smart a little smarter than the times.
I'd say for Nas it is a 2 out of 5. But hey, were rating based on hip hop songs today not just Nas songs. In that regard, its a 4. Seriously...how bad is rap today? When you get sick lyrics you get them on a mixtape with someone elses beat and no hook. When you get a good beat you get terrible lyrics. This is still better than 80 percent of the music that comes out on here daily...but for Nas it sucks
Your problem if you listening to the wrong shit. There's so much good and true music out there, you just have to search for it.
Nas the Rap God'
Not that great. Hope it's not on his next album! 2.5 stars worthy, but will let it slide with 3!
I can't believe that those creepy Nas stans actually exist.
if al said he liked it would anonymous be crying like a bitch? bias ass niggas cant handle criticism.
so you have to be an artist to have an opinion of one? the fuck outta here, get off nas' dick. i fuck with nas, but this song isn't half as good as the original. 2 outta 5. the beat is wack, the hook is annoying as fuck, nas' bars are average at best. 2 is actually generous...
Criticizing a legend....When you don't have anything that you created to back up your statement -_-
this song is fire!!!
This song is tight!!
Good message in the song. But Nas is was and always will be gay!
Ur pops is gay.....
what have u done for hiphop pussy!!
Goat Nasty Nas.....
The illest motherfucker in the world! Nasir
The GoldenChild Nasir Olu Dara Jones the motherfuckin Goat! Beat is trash the Chorus is garbage but Nas lyrics saves this joint and it's still Betta then the other bullshit u here today like Ghetto Techno!
Nas doing his thing on a quite decent beat, but the chorus just kind of ruins it. 4/5.
Nigga's to this day still fear Nas cause they kno he will murk they favorite rapper. Ask Rex the spokesman for the Camel Warriors movement!
Lol.... Rex why did Pun brake a bottle on Jsyz head?
the girls...soon to be grown ass women..and the ones that forgot they were...grown..
A lot of you have been brainwashed to the point where actually having to deal with anything besides your base urges in in music,give up on it..you will have to deal with the facts of life one time or another..the club will always be there,the heaux too..but when will you grow up?..
nas is writing for rick ross.
the same goes for you, you lil bitch.
Nas got more money then u^^^^^^ ur pops ur moms and ur whole ugly ass clan!

I was born in 1991 and the very first rap I can remember was Jay-Z, DMX, and Eminem. Some of the very first rap songs I heard was 'Hard Knock Life', 'Ruff Ryders Anthem' and 'My Name is'. I was only around 8 years old, and the very first hip hop CD I had was 'Slim Shady LP'. I was 13 when I really got into rap and that was when 50 Cent dropped his debut and took over the game. When X, Em, and 50 were coming into the rap game is some of my best memories of hip hop, it was so raw and they all took over the game. So based on my age and when I got into rap, my favorite era of rap was from 1998-2003. I later got into other rappers like nas, pun, L, outkast, etc.
1. Jay Z - Vol. 2 Hard Knock Life (1998)
2. DMX - It's Dark and Hell Is Hot (1998)
3. DMX - Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood (1998)
4. DMX - And Then There Was X (1999)
5. Jay-Z - Vol. 3 Life and Times of S. Carter (1999)
6. Eminem - Slim Shady LP (1999)
7. Eminem - Marshall Mathers LP (2000)
8. D12 - Devil's Night (2001)
9. DMX - The Great Depression (2001)
10. Jay z - The Blueprint (2001)
11. Jay Z - The Blueprint 2 (2002)
12. Eminem - Eminem Show (2002)
13. 50 Cent - Get Rich Or Die Tryin (2003)
14. G-Unit - Beg for Mercy (2003)
15. DMX - Grand Champ (2003)

nas is real good he should flood the industry with three mix tapes
I think this is a good song that could be great with exposure and a relevant video. All the doubters or peeps who dislike ask yourself....even after the original Black Girl Lost, has anything gotten better. Most females didn't even hear this joint on It Was Written...Nas is a vet, steppin' outta of the box is necessary!!!
Shit if you listen to 90% of the non-sense on the radio or on those stupid ass mixtapes that drop every week this is definitely OUT OF THE BOX! LMAO
This is out of the box for you? LMAO.
niggas is stupid this shit is crack. 4 stars minimum.
Peoples standards are waaaaayyyyy too high for Nas...Nas is like the Obama of hiphop...It's like you expect him to be God or something...What the fuck? I've listened to this multiple times, and there's not a thing wrong with this track. The beat is good, the lyrics are good, the hook is good...If anything, I wish it were longer. Get off Nas' dick and stop hating on everything this man puts out.
@ ION Suck a dick you fag, youre the stan. This dope shit
Nah, he deserves to get heat whenever he releases garbage. Just like every other artist out there. When will you stans be capable of admitting obvious flaws?
Fall back, nobody believes you. Forcing yourself to like this shit doesn't make it any better.
I thought this was going to be garbage because of the ratings but it's fucking dope...I don't get why people don't like this.
Cause it Nas...... The stans fear Nas cause they kno he will murk they favorite Rapper. Ask Rex.... Lol
Nas needs to hire a beat advisor. Dude has the ears of Helen Keller.
JAY Z IS DA GOAT
LOOK AT HIS TRACK RECORD... WHO HAS IMPROVED WITH TIME? WHO ALWAYS TAKE A BIG FAT DUMP ON EVERY SINGLE TRACK HE IS ON?
WHO HAS NEVER BEEN OUTDONE ON A TRACK?
Black girls lost 2---------- Ghetto Techno and sunshine combined!
I'm go with early jigga each and every time!
You could have an argument for one or the other.
Em outdid Jay on renegade
nice on the big fat dump
You could have the best lyrics & poetry in the world...but if you wack ass beat & terrible chorus to go with it the value of the song completely goes down the tubes. This record is an example of his young ass management trying to get him to pull a Nastradamus move. FAILLLLLLLLLLLLLL!
I honestly think this song is alrite, am sure its not garbage. if u dont know music or listen, just quit hatin period!
nas needs a consultant dude makes terrible business decisions. he even had to stop pressing "braveheart party" with copies of stillmatic because mary j was embarrassed of how wack the track was.
Nas never worked a day in his life.... Nas never lost only niggas who lost are the one's who thought they can take it to Nas... No Austin powers No 50 monkey ass No Dipshit niggas not nobody! Nas the goat motherfuckerssssssssds!!!!
nobody has taken more L's than this clown, that alone is enough reason for him not even being remotely close to being the GOAT.
im not looking forward to big girl part 2.
Beat is garbage, Chorus is Wack, Black Girl Lost pt1 is a classic . Black Girl Lost pt2 is good Nas lyrics saves this joint. But don't get it twisted Nas is still the illest Mc in the world! No one fuckin with Esco, No one!
that not even nas
I'm a nas fan but this straight Garbage.
why? please explain to me why. I've listened to this song 4 times and don't understand why there is so much hate.
There isn't shit wrong with this track! Not usually my typa shit with the hihats an shit, but it's alright! 1 track doesn't make the man! Small thinking keeps ya'll in your place....stay there!
You're crazy! He doesn't sound good over this type of beat at all. He sounds completely displaced. Nas sounds good over Soul, Jazz & Funk loops not cheesy ass Fruity Loops Studio
man as bad as i hate to say this i think nas needs to hang it up he is falling off bad his new single was a big disapointment also
The beat is wack but the concept is dope! Fuck all the hoodrats all over the hoods
Nas records a lot of shit in private with no intention of releasing it or to impress whatever label his is with at the moment. If someone found this track and leaked it, this is not Nas' intention. As many real writers know creating music is therapeutic and only a few artist use this to their advantage when they record. Most definitely not his best, for all we know this could have been a unfinished reference track or experimental concept track as it only has two verses. He probably has hundreds of tracks like these where he can come back to it, add a third verse, write three new verses on the spot and complete revamp the entire project or scrap it before it gets leaked. Too late for that now. The internet has officially labeled and marked this as "Black Girl Lost 2". Big up to God Son and Damian Marley (Bob Son).
Nas himself said in an interview a few weeks ago that he'll soon leak a new song and its called 'Another Black Girl Lost'..So yeah, this ain't no accident, it was intended to be released. Lay off the emotional dickriding and just admit this shit is garbage bruh, no need to write titangraphs to defend Nas.
5 fo the king
I think yall will find alot of teenagers that believe Nas is the GOAT and that Illmatic is the best album of all time. Let me say this: These fucks know NOTHING AND HAVE THE NERVE TO FELL ELITIST, they just REPEAT what they they heard. I have heard hundreds, no - THOUSANDS of tracks that STRAIGHT UP MURDER anything Nas EVER did lyrically. That yall haven't heard these tracks says more about yall than Nas.
Just because yall are Nas/2Pac/Eminem/Jay-Z fanboys, doesen't mean that these are the best - just that you are a dumb and ignorant fanboys.
I for one would LOVE for you to mention, these THOUSANDS of tracks you've "heard" that single handedly KILL everything Nas EVER did as you so eloquently put it. Were you born after 1988 by chance son???
I hear where u coming from dog but regardless there are few out there better then the legends you mentioned..i mean you sound like your taking away from those artists just because they got alotta fans?? thats bullshit..common issue some hip hop heads have
why are you hating on people that think what they think hater cause no matter what nas and jayz and eminem and pac and big are legends in the rap game just cause you don't like them don't start bitching and making a long ass comment bout it
Nas drops total garbage like this while the misunderstood genius of Jay-Z is spitting poetry on No Church In The Wild.
How can Nas release shit like this and leave tracks like ''My Own Worst Enemey'' unreleased? Unbelievable.
Beats and Ether and Jay...y'all so fucking childish. y'all say the same thing on every post. Whiney Lil fuxx. He will never do enough to please everybody...complain,complain, complain....what rapper puts out a perfect album with 15 out of 15 perfect songs??...Nobody!!!...that's who. Just bump the shit you like. Fuckin unpaid critics
Nas the greatest fuckin Rapper alive!!!!!!
The Only Thing that would make Nas command more respect and attention is by joining G.O.O.D Music....thie beat is trash trash trash trash....i hope u only paid $100 for it as it ain't worth nothing better than that....total trash
Nas is a naive retard who don't wanna listen .... he's been told for decades his beat selection is wack ... why can't he just employ people who have an ear for beats and he focus on the lyrics & concepts?
The Don is wack, and now black girl lost 2...whats nex, Ooochie Wally pt ? Hate Me Now Again ? ....what?
Go Join G.O.O.D Music nigga, as Def Jam ain't working for you
Nas is naive??? But then again he is the one flying in private jets, riding in his own phantom and still spitting and making money 20 years later!!! While u sit here and criticize him on comment boards like this!!! N seriously??? G.O.O.D Music? These niggaz JUST got a record deal n u think a LEGEND should join them??? LOL!!! Thats like saying 50 cent should join OFWGKTA!!! U STUPID!!!!
Rick Ross should produce this nigga's album's executively, imagine Nas on them beats Ross gets.
Not as dope as the last track he released, needs better beat. Someone get at Nas on the production tip.
The only thing that is keeping Nas from being the GOAT is his shitty ass production he needs help picking beats he could be the greatest ever if his production was at least average
Nas needs to put Nikk/rihannai on the hook fuck that the most lost bitches in the game that would be a hit!!!
JAYZ IS NOT THE GREATEST
NAS IS NOT THE GREATEST
I AM THE GREATEST MC EVER
i reli dnt think its dat bad. yes a bit cheessy but msg is clear
WHAT. THE. FUCK. IS. THIS? I'll love Nas forever for his contributions to the game, but for all of his talent as an emcee he's made some of the wackiest songs. His horrible beat selection skills is now legendary. The hook on this song may be the worst I've ever heard. People was hyping "The Don", it's not that good either
i agree its maybe3.5/5 but i still bang it
Nah, it's average at best. If I compare that to the best songs in Nasir's catalouge it can NEVER be a 5. Where's the next level then? The internet destroyed legitimate opinions, like there's nothing between garbage and classic.
cmon the don is 5/5
Dis song's trash, nas said this album will have a nineteens feel but based on dis trash and the don, I find it hard to believe.
nas lyrically is better then ever, but i do agree then hook is wack, beat is nice.
Thinking that Nas is now better than he was on Illmatic, It Was Written, I Am... or Stillmaitc is just pathetic.
Rex be writing novels on Hateing Nas shit is pathetic
you Nas stans have such an inferiority complex you still want to prove some sort of point to someone who generally agrees with you. All I hear cats say about Takeover is that they like it better than Ether. That's their opinion. Just like this whole Jay vs. Nas shit is opinion. Y'all niqqas can throw the word fact around all you want it doesn't change the fact that it's opinion. People go overboard and use words like "annihilation". Jay is like 5 times bigger now than he was then so thats a pretty ass-backwards annihilation. Just the fact that Nas came back with a diss track and made it interesting and showed he didn't fear Jay saved his career. Irrational cocksuckers like the people on this site want to equate opinion with fact. The majority of people might've sided with Nas back then, but that still doesn't make the opinion that Nas won a fact. It's funny how you insecure fucks only champion popular opinion when it suits your agenda, any other time popular opinion be damned. Popular opinion says that Jay-Z makes better music than Nas and has pretty much always done so, but let a Jay-Z "Stan" try and use Jay-Z's record sales and popularity to try and prove that him being better than Nas is a fact. This shit comes down to personal opinion, there is no right or wrong answer. Your opinion of Nas winning is no more factual than some white boy saying that Eminem is the best rapper alive. Just because the majority may side with a particular opinion doesn't make the opinion fact.
STFU NIGGA AND GO SIT DOWN -----> _/
Since Nas got on def jam, his sound has really started to got down the toilet! Lyrics is ok, but seriously Nas, get back top your roots homie!
HOTTEST NEW ARTIST OUT! I PROMISE YALL!CHECK ME OUT
Diddy worth 550 milil Vs Jayz 450 milil. Does that mean diddy is the best rapper ever?????? I think not! Nas the greatest Mc ever.... I kno u bitchass nigga's caught Vh1 last night.. Black Girls lost 2=. Wack beat wack chorus but Nas spits the truth about all these hoodrats who try to get preggo from athletes, movie stars and rappers to so they can have security... Peace
Premo, RZA or Large Pro could give this nigga a tape full of their dopest beats, exclusively made for Nas and this nigga would say: 'Nah, b, let me look for some Salaam Remi or DaInternz shit instead'.
Look at how many all time great producers were rumored to get a beat on this project, I bet only 2 or 3 of them will actually appear on the final CD. Damn shame.
Damn, nas sucks with music now! wtf is he trying to do hahahaha.. stick to beats and rhymes, super whack dude, step up "mc"
Nas the Don!
nas needs to work with my man Lex luger to get those bangin beats
this is nice, but not feeling the hook and it's beat segment 3.50
too musical,, beat needs to be stripped down,more raw,,,so the lyrics can be felt,, like the first one,,,hook is non cipher,,,,
I'm going to retract my statement from yesterday. The song isn't bad. "Braveheart Party" wasn't too bad either. I listened to both a few times. It's an acquired taste. Listen to it a few times and it clicks. No, it isn't as poignant nor verbose as the first song, but I get what he's saying here. The girl supposed to be ignorant to how lost she is. I am not gonna belabor the point though nor try to make y'all like it. The people have spoken and it sucks to them, but I like it.
Yo Rex shut the fuck up. Nas is the GOAT!!! Sucka!!
Hey Rex did u watch vh1 tonight are u studying Nas? Lol. This nigga gots to b the biggest Nas ever all cause of ETHER let it go homie that shit was 11 yrs ago!
Dude is officially up there for most overrated of all time, NOTHING about what's he's doing is special in any kind of way, whether artistically nor rapwise. GTFOH with this dude even being in the consideration for the GOAT title for a 9 track album where the best producers of that time played a bigger part than him, nobody with so much inconsistency will never be the greatest of anything. If you think he rhymes good, I can only tell listen to some underground rappers.
asap rocky got the nice beat.nas got the shitty beat.hehehe
Let's be real, the beat is wack, the chorus is wacker, but the lyrics and the concept are so real to those with even the smallest amount of real money that I can forgive Nas's first missteps with the song. The song as a whole both sucks and is great at the same time. What a conundrum
As Long as Nas don't talk like Austin Powers on his albums or even have Chris Martin and Mr.hudson I'm fine...... Song is str8 for the hoodrats who try to trap athletes and rapper's fuckin gold digga's!
Rather Hear The Appcalla without Hook.Beat Wack Hook Wacker.Wan punch Nas.Illmatic 2 dis.Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
This song was made for the ladies you goofy niggas.All the other rappers dissin yo moms and black sisters.And i bet the ones that hate the song support rappers that disrespect our black sisters.Up yaw game
AHHAHAHAH u fukin people are jokes, u same people were just dick riding NAS when he released The Don... Now he needs to quit? Its called versatility u close minded fuks, its a good ass song.
very few people are capable of doing what Nas fukin Does, and u people Dream about doing.
Im not even a Nas fan like that either
Go jack off to katie perrys picture on her version of niggas in paris and say how good the song is. FUKIN LOSERS.
Nas's also a mere human being, makes mistakes just like everybody, and if he releases a shitt joint he has to be told.
Nah, nothing wrong with admitting a wack song, nigga will think this was good otherwise and will release nothing but this shit.
When will this guy start to do just him? He has so much potential it's unreal.
I can't get over this, how could the guy who made songs like One Mic think this is any good?
God damn, this is by far the WORST song Nas has ever done, too much dickriders in his camp.
What the fuck is this bullshit, Nasir? Godfuckindamn, get on the phone and dial 1-800-preemo!
It's 2012, 9th Wonder is washed up too.
Get Damu the Fudgemunk to do a beat
preemos washed up.9th wonder pls
wtf is wrong with yall? this sh1t is great song. fucin clowns
exactly! chorus not though
yeah this just doesn't go with nas at all. just trying to get some exposure to this new age. it's hard for me to even sit through this, but i think i understand his reasons for choosing a beat like this, to get the people who need to hear what he's saying to listen.
I have no problem with the rhymes or the subject matter. I'm not a fan of the hook or the the beat. Nas is one of my favorites and will always be despite his questionable production choices over the past few years. I really hope he goes back to the solid Boom-Bap producers that help make him a Hip-Hop Legend
ive never heard anything so corny in my life
hahaha produced by hitboy???? aw man, nas is being sabotaged. hitboy gave asap such a stunning beat and look what he gave nas? this shit is so corny im speechless. rip my nigga, you done
how did it come to this??? nas has hit rockbottom
hahaha this is so whack i still can't believe this is really happening. my god, nas is going to be ridiculed for this monstrously bad song. the hook alone my nigga....
wow man, i can't even tell you how terrible this bullshit is. hahaha i hope this isn't going to be on the album? shit is embarrassing.
damn... trash beat, horrible hook, good rhymes. I agree this betta not touch that album press up
I like this IDC about the beat but Nas went in & he couldve left Lil Kim off
pathetic, and nas is my favorite rapper
JayZ is way more consistent. Nas does just as many pop songs, they just go under the radar because they're usually garbage, aside from exceptions like Hero. Nas is a trend-hopping, gimmick-driven loser. Deal with it. I don't rate Jay any lower based on his unexecptional success. Jay was, is and will ever be the better pure spitter of the two. The level Jay was on 96-98 was unseen by any before or after him. His skills were unreal, but he did not just spit, he took his talent to greater use and expanded his audiences while still keep his core fans saitisfied, that's where Nas fails at since IWW. Dropping an obvious crossover attempt and thinking 'Ah, I can back to being the real nigga' if it won't work' is a motto I don't support, that's why Jay is better
You are on Nas's dick.
the song is weak, the beat is rubbish, and the hook is so rubbish, dumbest hook i have heard in a while. and nas is my fav MC
haha the hook is so bad it's unreal. this is the worst song i've ever heard nas do.
NAS THIS SUCKS!!YOU NEED BETTER BEATS AND NO BULLSHIT POP CHORUSES!!
This better not be on the album. And from what I saw on some other website, hit-produced this garbage!
This jam is mad weak. I hope this shit isn't on Life is Good. Nasty and The Don are ill as fuck though. If the overall quality of the new album is at the level of those songs it'll be Nas' best album in a decade.
Lyrics are good but Nas needs to hire someone to pick his beats or maybe he should work exclusively with NoID and Just Blaze
LOL!!! The producer of this didn't even want his name credited, fearing that he'll never find work again. The rhymes are on point, but the beat and hook are mad poor. Nas has pretty much been on fire up until this song. This is his worst since "Snitch Alibi" last year. Everything between that song and this one has been certified!
you bitches need to chill lyrically nas is as potent as ever, but i do agree that the bitch on the chorus kinda ruins it.
Long time Nas supporter but he needs better beats it's a disgrace that even I would just stop listening because of that horrible hook with that woman on there too. Leave this off the album please!!
Who be doing these beats for Nas? Just work with 9th wonder, No ID, because this is a far cry from the original
You douchbags! keep giving this low ratings and this shit wont land on life is good...im tired of burning mixtapes yall...im tired of artists relying on the fans feedback and then leaving out hot joints. wtf is wrong with yall?
lyrics are aight, but the beat... cmon im not a musician, but beat and this flow just dont go together...
Dope!!!!!Nas Next album will be another Classic Album!
OMG NAS..AS a supporter over the years..Please..stop the madness!!!! Lyrics are always on point, but YOU NEED A PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR!!!! LET SOMEONE ELSE PICK YOUR BEATS!!!!! YOU NEED TO FIRE ALL YOUR FLUNKY'S, DICK RIDA'S, GRUOPIES, AND YES MEN FOR LETTING YOU LEAVE OUT THE STUDIO WITH THAT GRABBAGE ASS BEAT. Again, concept is on point, but doesn't go with that beat man. C"Mon DUNN!!!!
Dumb Kids! But you give Waka flaka Fag 5's for his crap he does. And who says this is the finally version of the song. Nas is the only M.C putting out real music Jay Z sure isn't. I can't Believe Hip Hop is dead. All this Auto Tune Sing along rappers who dress like Gay dudes and thats what you guys like.
Why is it that Nas seems to love the dudes who you shit on?
Like the guy before said, you're waaay worse than mainstream fans. Nas, 2Pac and Immortal Technique stans are by far the most annoying groups of all time.
fuck you i dont like wacka flocka or any other bullshit pop any more than you do but people like you are even worse than mindless radio songs. You will automatically hate on anything by a mainstream artist, even if it turns out to be the occasional good song from one, and automatically love anything by someone like nas. I love nas, but lets be honest, this song sucks. I guarantee you about 1 of 50 people who click on this link and probably 1 of 25 who even go to this site like waka flocka. go to one of his singles i'm sure its lower than 3. You are the typical bitch ass hip hop fan who says hip hop is dead and assumes that every kid likes the shit on the radio. Also im 13 I hate Waka Flocka and all that a lot of my friends do too not every kid in the world is a trash pop fan. Go die you dickriding motherfucker.
It's Official this nigga is TRASH
Its official...Your opinion doesn't matter.
it looks like 3/4 of this site dosen't understand what rapping in concept is. Rap is supposed to relate to life situations because this song dosent relate to you it sucks? you angry rap nerds need to chill not every song is specfically made to please you.
That's it, Nas has many great ideas, but he can't execute these type of concepts properly.
no actually thats not why its rated so low. The concept and lyrics are great, but the beat and hook make it unlistenable.
This production is so jarring hard to finish the track.
This is not worse than that "Braveheart Party" bullshit from back then though.
I really like this
Huh? What in he world?
sounds like a Dj Khalil beat. not a bad song.
I did not think it was terrible. I guess if it is not some Lil Wayne nonsense you kids don't understand it.
Lolwut @ anonymous, why would you hate lil wanye if he's rapping conscious music?
Actually this was Nas rapping on some Lil Wyane sounding nonsense. Thats why people don't like it. Get a clue.
Compared to his early records, (Illmatic, It Was Written & I Am especially) Nas has turned into an arrogant, egocentric, misogynistic and whining rapper! His flow and voice are always on point though!
I AM COULD'VE BEEN a fucking classic on the level of Illmatic, but the beats were so fucking polished and poppy that they destroyed the whole album, it was his best from a strictly lyrical standpoint.
Disagree..."I Am" is his 3rd best album behind Illmatic and IWW. It hasn't gotten much better since then. He can still shred verses but he has SUCH an air of self importance that he has to make music based off that.
Don't most people consider it like 86-92?...
What all those records you mentioned have in common is they were all released before 2000. That's how I know you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. "I Am.." was garbage compared to 4 of Nas's post-2000 albums. And if you're going to be a 90's hip hop purist, know what years are part of the golden age (90-96).
whoa this so weird to listen to nas think he gotta do better
Not that into nas but I didn't think this was THAT bad
Poorly mixed piece of crap, my ears are hurting from the solid bar compression.
man shut up! you can't hear that ish on an internet mix. stop it. U ain't mix this.
I'm a huge Nas enthusiast. I don't like this song particularly. Lyrics are meaningful but man...
Nas fuck the haters, get more, us fans and haters are gonna help pay your bills, we got you nas. We don't wanna see u bankrupt. Do behind the music and radio singles like this if u need. We gonna drop the album, get the taxes taken care of and you'll be eating again in no time. Fuck Kelis and Fuck the haters.
Nas, WTF?! Not terrible, but for Nas, this was disappointing
this is weak...dear nas i know u wanna keep the buzz going until the album drops...tell ur label this is not how to go about that sir
Where are dem Nas Stans ??? This shit is wack...Just like the other single "The Don". Nas can't rap. Period !!!!!
lmao its a shitty track but "nas cant rap" ? lmao gtfoh silly person u r
dude, Nas dumbed it down
if these verses are on nicki minaj's album no one would talk shit about them
thats cause nicki minaj sucks the beat would still be terrible but everyone would be so amazed that she could ever come up with these lyrics (average nas lyrics) that they would forget it. Nas is capable of making such high quality music people expect more than this from him.
I didn't want this to suck but it does.
Ouch!.... Nas My 3rd fav rapper but this shit aint good at all.
WTF ARE YALL TALKING ABOUT nas worst song is 10x better then 90 % of rappers best shit . its so frustrating these fuckin little skinny jean wearing homos diss a legand he is one of the last yeal mc's lil wayne bst song post C2 isnt this good man smh sad day when ppl diss the don
Black girl lost 2
the original black girl lost was wack???? u stupid!
I fuckin hated the first one from It was Written, and was the only song i would hit the skip button on, and this one is just as bad.
I thought The Setup was the worst track on the album though the whole album was dope and I don't need to skip even one track.
you got no head on your shoulders
This song isn't that bad. The lyrics and content/message are there. The hook is kind of annoying but I understand it. 3.5/5 Beat is ehh.
not the same wisdom and depth given with the 1st classic masterpiece
As long as Nas don't talk like Austin Powers or make Music with Mr. Hudson I'm cool... Beat is wack and chorus is wack but Nas spits the truth about money hungry whores around the world!
Black girl lost 2-------------- Ghetto techno, sunshine, and Pujabi Mc combined!
HA! Nas with the WALE flow. wow.
No he really sounds like Wale on some parts
random ass bullshit
C'mon, Son! ow you gonna drop this garbage and call it "Black Girl Lost 2". See this is what Im talking about. Son can't stay consistent. he can not make a classic album at this point. And thats only because his lack of loyalty to all the dope producers who has contributed to his success. The only one Nas mess with is Salam for some reason. He probably convinced him to do this garbage. As soon as I heard the snare roll, I knew it was a wrap!
Judging by the rating, Im not alone this time lol.
the don was ok? nigga u a hater.the don was a dope track.
actually "Nasty" was SUPER DOPE! The Don was ok. Anything else, little guy?
save ur crap u probably hated on nasty and the don too.u ll hate the next one too so shut u shithole!
lyrics werent bad. but not even close to his original classic. hook was AWFUL. he should definitely let trash this asap. didnt have any heartfelt feeling like the 1st one.
If this song is an indication of what Nas new album will sound like, his new album will be worse than Nastradamus by a landslide. The beat & hook on this record are such garbage.
horrible baet. Nas is the king of wack beats
is this a late april's fool ? worst Nas track I ever heard
Huge Nas fan, but this is garbage. I thought this was a joke when I hear the hook at the beginning along with the low rating.
Come on Nas, Im begging for something much better than this.
The song is growing on me. The lyrics and the message is there. The hook does throw it off but I understand the meaning.
i love it
this is prob the best single. on the radio wise nas had ina minute. its not as bad as everybody thinks. when wayne drake gets on there singin shit everybody feelin it. now when a real hip hop artist drops some r&b type shit its wak. fuck outta here. 4/5
thats not Nas on the hook. its some random broad. The hook goes against the very concept of "commercial". its not catchy. Its not repeatable. She is saying way too much. So what are you talking about, Willis?
Black Girl lost 2---------- Ghetto Techno and Pujabi Mc combined!!!
Black lost 2---------------- Ghetto Techno and Punjabi Mc combined! Fuck Austin Powers lol
I'm a Nas stan but only a Nas Stan would rate this wack ass song 5 stars. So disappointed with this song.
Nas I Have One Question for U...How the fuck were U able to record to a shitty beat like this and think it sounds dope...Like 9th wonder said "Come on Nas"....All true music producers please send Nas and his people your dopest tracks cause I know there is a dude chilling in a dingy basement creating Havoc for beats...Nas your Ears Have lost it....Listen to Black girl lost one and tell me this is a good sequal w/o laughing....I'm Hurt....it hurts me cause I'ma Jones as well...Its pretty easy keeping up w/ the Joneses with this shit....I hope it doesn't make the album or at least he changes to beat and hook..PLEASE
You guys are straight HATERS. You need to understand that as an artist under a label Nas only has so much creative freedom. How do you know the dudes that the round table didn't demand he make this song with this new sound? On top of that, as a music artist that has a deep passion for music, you tend to reach out to others of a different genre. Pop, R&B, etc.. I think the lyrics were solid, ya'll can't be givin it 2's and 3's cause you think he destroyed the original with this new beat and new hook. I think it shows the progression of an artist and the type of music that'd have broader mass appeal in 2012
The track is talking about something. Depending on the website audio you really cant hear the quality of the producer or hook. With that said. The people that had a negative comment vocabulary proves that they would'nt understand Nas music.Jesus spoke in parables john 10;6 mark 4;10-13 because yall wouldnt understand . Thats why yall dnt understand Nas he speak the Truth. Those of us thats do feel Nas music love the Truth. Those of you who dont sold out after Nas I am . To THE BOULE artist believing the lies that these artist, that are in the main stream are leading the lost. I love Nas because he havent change and HE IS A Legend. who still have a craft that is going to stand after all yall idols are in the lake of fire! yall rejected Christ Like yall rejecting Nas. AT the end of the day HE IS and ALWAYS will be the Greatest Rapper... plus his music is not for yall its for those who want to be free from ignorance...
You Might Not Like THE BEAT and You Might Not Like THE HOOK But You Can't Deny The LYRICS Cause NAS Stay SPITTING That REAL SHIT!!!
if he came out with another salaam remi joint.haters will be like oh! why is he always working with him.now he works with hitboy,its wack.u haters should fuck off really.
personally,i think nas should focus on producers dat he has chemistry with like salaam,preemo,large pro or he should try out pipl like j cole,jus blaze,9th wonder or RZA.listening to haters and tryin to work with producers like internz and hitboy wont work. the don track was nice but i dont think
the internz brought anything to the table on that beat.nas should do more work with salaam.salaam's beat has that boom bap classic feel.and why cant nas do something with the roots.
Oh my God. I didnt think i'd ever see the day that a Nas song would get a below 3 rating on this site. Well they brought Pac back from the dead so anything is possible.
i change my life give to god but somebody got say it we lost
yall always say you want him to work with current producers hit boy produced the track,and there you have it a garbage beat, he said in a interview that he used ideas from the producers he was working with so maybe hit boy is responsable for this trash and yeah the hook was weak but i heard worst roman holiday has the worst hook ever
dope undaground producers shuld work with nas marcopolo, illmind, best kept secret or he should try kanye west again.
this song was produced by hitboy. FAIL!!!
Please leave this on the cutting room floor. (I like Nas, but this ain't it)
....but nas went hard on both verses though
^^shut the fuck up hater.i will call it a hot verse if it was from anybody.this track is good but it wasnt as good as the don or nasty.keep hating fool.
still a wack ass SONG and you wouldn't call the verses hard if they wasn't from nas. fall back.
INFERIORITY COMPLEX ON FULL FORCE AGAIN!!! THESE FAGGOTS WILL N-E-V-E-R ADMIT A WACK ASS NAS TRACK, THEY RATHER SEARCH FOR COUNTLESS EXCUSES AND EXPLANATIONS!!! LOL LIKE JIGGA WOULD EVER GET A PASS LIKE THAT ''B-B-B-B-B-UT IT'S JUST A THROWBACK!!!'' THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN FOR ANY OTHER RAPPER!!!
wack.come on nas
LMAO nas failed soooooo bad tryna recreate such a good song. It was painful to listen to Pt 2 LOL
Damn definately a throw away track, hopefully not a preview of things to come for the album.
ok this is a bad one,but even kobe misses a shot every once in awhile,it's a throw away track, ya'll dudes stop hating on nas some of your favorite radio rappers make garbage everyday, plus it's not a single, it wont even make the album so the masses wont here it, so it cant ruin him or his legacy, so stop throwing rocks at the trone... ask your favorite rapper who's there favorite rapper and the answer is nas
Of course, every rapper releases garbage, but they don't get the excuses we hear everytime from Nas stans, that's the difference and other rappers releasing garbage, doesn't make this track any better. And Nasstans should be uiet on this topic because they're usually the first one to SHIT on other artists without a particular reason. People on here try to justify their opinions about Nas track WITH arguments, but you still get your panties up in a bunch. Nas stans get all out with insults and jokes on other rappers (Jay, Em and etc.) WITHOUT being ever uestioned, it's the opposite the fans of those artists get called dickriders and cocksuckers for asking them why they put their hate out in this way. But let a possible fan of Nas voice his honest opinion, he gets trashed. Defend Nas in an almost offending way the same way other people do with their favorite rapper and they still have the nerve to get mad over that. If you can't deal with the fact that your favorite rappers get put on blast here and then, the internet might be the wrong place for you.
that hook was so annoying
his verses was correct.but the beat and chorus was too poppy.i hope it does'nt make the album.3/5.
This comment page is the perfect example of hip hop fans being frickle. Apparently Nas can kill features for a whole year but the second he drop a subpar track that won't even be on his album his career is over.
doesn't mean shit what you just said. nas deserves the same uick judge every artist gets, i'm you're one of the first who assumes that a career of a rapper that you not like is over when you hear a wack track from him. i'm just sceptic because nas is known for leaving the best shit off his albums.
Its not like this is the first subpar track nas has given us. He's shelled out a lot of trash in the past 10 years. It's just when nas is good he's great so we keep listening.
so fuckin true homie this def wont be on his album
Along with Jay,Nore,Redman and Ghostface and The once great Nasir helluva fall from grace.
U Jim jones the hype man from Harlem nigga u assssssss!
Jim jones, your soft core porn music videos are better muted. just sayin.
I like this joint
Grand opening grand closing. This song is garbage. I had to really listen to make sure this was Nas, thought it was a joke. If he's gonna come out with songs like this, his career is over. I was lost at the hook and the beat is wack. I was literally LMAO...but really 0/5
^^ ur dads a cocksucker
ur a cocksucker.
u a hater.
Take away the hook and give the song a new beat and we might have an aiiight song. I thought this would be classic like the original track. Boy was I wrong!
Its not bad song at all. But I guess up to Nas standards people are butt hurt.
Nas is either listening to the people around him too much or not listening to them enough. With his level of skill, it's hard to make weak song, but somehow he manages to do it. He find new ways to make wack songs. You mean to tell me that Nas listened to that chorus and said "Yeah, thats tight, were gonna use that". Listen Nas, these young kids ARE NOT CHECKING FOR YOU. You know why? Because you're intelligent and you have skills. They want to listen to dumb niggas with no skills. Fuck THEM. Make music for the people who can actually understand and appreciate your shit. Picasso wasnt drawing stick figures so that dumb motherfuckers could go to his gallery. He was painting abstract pictures for those who can appreciate art and that's how his work became timeless. Come back to New York City, Put a fuckin' hoodie on, Get a bottle of hennessey, Light some fuckin' broccoli, Call up some real fuckin' producers, Get a sharpie and a notebook and get back to work.
thats not gonna happen cause if he puts a hoodie on they will kill him in self defense remember.
Hell yeah, I think all nas fans should tell him go back to NYC put on a fuckin hoodie get a bottle of Hennessy light up some broccoli call up some real producers and flip a coin whether he go off the dome or in the notebook.
Throwaway track...it wont make the final album.
Doesn't make it any better. Point being, Nas releases TRASH just like every other overrated mainstream raper.
Wow...I'm stunned. I just wish he would have named it something else. Black Girl Lost Pt.1 is such an important song and such a classic that he should have left it alone. The beat is dope, minus the trippety trappety drums. And the lyrics are decent, but GOD DAMN THAT HOOK SUCKS. I suppose he's trying to appeal to the young crowd with the same message he got across with the first Black Girl Lost. I don't know...maybe the nigga is more savvy than I am and he knows what he's doing. Whatever the case, as a lifelong Nas fan and even more so just a connoisseur of dope hip-hop music I gotta say this shit is kinda wack.
Just listened to it again...that hook is unlistenable.
Damn nas. If I told a young nigga black girl lost is one of the dopest songs made by nas if they heard this first they wouldn't believe me. Nas lyrics save the horrible production and popcorn ass hook by is that lil mo. I really wish older rappers wouldn't try to fit in with the young genre. The beat hook and his flow on the first verse made it seem like he wanted to reach the young audience. He needs to understand people under 25 don't give a fuck about him. New beat new hook u got a classic part 2 nas.
EXCLUDING THE BRILLIANT ILLMATIC
@CEO,LOL, is it ghetto techno or selling drugs for 72 hours straight while surviving on cookies? Fuck out of here if you don't think jay is a tend hopping faggot.
It's outlandish because illmatic and it was written >>>>reasonable doubt. So the whole "never seen before him" shit is invalid. but of course you guys will over rate the Hawaiian sophie dude.
The Black Album > Reasonable Doubt > The Blueprint > American Gangster.
Blueprint had more impact on the game, reasonable doubt was another dope mafio-themed classic album like life after death and only built for cuban linx
Why are the claims outlandish? If you really LISTENED to Jay in that particular period, you would know it's true, which doesn't mean that you have to like it. Jay himself couldn't reach that level ever again. It's like Nas and Illmatic. Even if you don't agree, I would never call it outlandish when I see what people attribute Nas with on here everyday.
The comment before summed it up basically.
Nas shifts between different personae seeking popular acclaim. Jay-Z outsells him without pretending to be anyone other than himself.
Lol @ anonymous, was his core fans satisified with kingdom come or bp3? Fuck out of here and go suckle from euro jay's camel tit elsewhere. "The level jay was on 96-98 was unseen by any before or after him". I can't even take you seriously when you're making outlandish claims like that.
He's for real. Jay's way more consistent. Nas does just as many pop songs, they just go under the radar because they're usually garbage, aside from exceptions like Hero. Nas is a trend-hopping, gimmick-driven loser. Deal with it. I don't rate Jay any lower based on his unexecptional success. Jay was, is and will ever be the better pure spitter of the two. The level Jay was on 96-98 was unseen by any before or after him. His skills were unreal, but he did not just spit, he took his talent to greater use and expanded his audiences while still keep his core fans saitisfied, that's where Nas fails at since IWW. Dropping an obvious crossover attempt and thinking 'Ah, I can back to being the real nigga' if it won't work' is a motto I don't support, that's why Jay is better.
You buggin the fuck out
this is not good. nas can spit but wtf. 2/5
I love NAS... but he should not be allowed to choose beats EVER AGAIN.
The lyrics have always been there but his beat selection hasn't.
I was thrown off at first because the sound is SO different from the first Black Girl Lost from back in the day. But, there is a much different sound to hip-hop nowadays compared to the nineties anyway. As I listened, it grew on me.
Nas NEEDS to feature Elzhi on his upcoming album. This track is alright though...can't really say I was expecting more.
Why? Nas is scared of rappers who are easily able to outclass him. Ever thought of the fact that didn't work with Cormega anymore and stopped making track with AZ? Fall back, Elzhi/Lupe Fiasco/Jay Electronica would MURDER this nigga, look what a lesser talented Apathy did to him.
Elzi is dope, but he wouldn't show Nas up. Be real
doubt that would happen. Elzhi would show him up
Not my favorite Nas record but he can do what the fuck he wanna do. I'm ridin.
damn, i read the comments and im like, 'wow this song must suck!"...i listen to it...its not that bad at all, people like to jump on bandwagons and repeat what they see lol
but it wiuld be the same if the song was dope and everybody said so.
I agree. its not like its young money. lol
Haha, of all the songs to do a Part 2 too... YIKES
Why she gotta be black?
Besides the hook i like it...
hommo faggot??!! you need to be easy!!!
y'all the same nigga that be ridding with shit like "NIGGAs IN PAIRS" the most ignorant song of the year!! when we already have mad Black people in pairs they on some christopher columbus shit discovering a place that inhabited by niggas already!!!SMH
that's how you spot a dickrider homo faggot kids!
its not that bad its a good album cut
nice commercial track with a meaning!!
Ruined a classic how could you do this to yourself Nas
What's wrong with the beats and hook. This sucks! More on: http://bit.ly/yXyB31
Garbage, once again the Nas beat plague continues. Why is it so difficult for Nas & his team to understand the formula...Soul/Jazz/Funk & Hard Drums
Wack! If this is a sign of what Nas new album is supposed to sound like that. He needs to go ahead and just hang it up. Cheesy ass beat & Cheesy ass hook
F-U-C-K this nigga Nas and his garbage ass music. Saigon took his spot with GSNT and won't let it go anytime soon. GSTN destroys anything Nas has done since Stillmatic and Life Is Good won't come even close. Nas will never be capable to drop tracks like ''The Invintation'', ''Bring Me Down'', ''Enemies/Friends'', ''Believe It'', ''Better Way'' or ''Oh Yeah''. Nas, take note, Saigon will remind you what a REAL cohesive, supreme CLASSIC his with his next milestone.
NOT SINCE 'STILLMATIC' (GOD SON, NIGGER & DISTANT RELATIVES) WERE DOPE!
True Nas fan, but this shit has me worried for the album! The don was marginally acceptable, but this completely destroys the legacy o Black girl Lost. Hope he works with AZ, some better producers and brings out some real shit.
Love It..Real Hip-Hop.."UnPopular" by Mosik drops today on iTunes, Amazon..go get it fam and spread the word. http://ow.ly/akAck Interscope
Dis nigga betta hurry wit dat train track and hope it redeems dis subpar shit he been dropping, I don't another nastradamus 2.
this joint is wack as hell!!
The don's aight, but dis is supa trash. Glad its not on da album tho.
As a nas stan, dis shit is beyond trash, its so not him. 1 star
This Rex guy seriously needs to accept that Jay and nas aren't in competition anymore. He also needs to accept that no matter how much he undermines nas and talks up Jay that Jay will never care at all. As for the song, the hook is pretty bad and the beat is average but his flow is on point and there is a message. Seems a whole lot of hate and also a whole load of dickriding and not alot of truth in the comment section though. Now all we need is for people to start hating on eminem and we will have the big 3 Jay,nas and eminem not getting high ratings just because of a name.
Word. Jay, Nas and Em fans should unite, the 3 Kings of Hip Hop against all the wack shit that's out there, instead they go all out on legends and leave the true wack shit alone. Em, Nas and Jay will release wack songs here and there, but that means nothing in comparison to their status and overall legacy.
ok, this song sucks but stop riding jay's dick. ny state of mind> anything jay has done
AS A BIG FAN OF THE ORIGINAL I DONT LIKE THIS AT ALL BUT THE YOUNG CATS WHO WERENT AROUND WHEN THE ORIGINAL DROPPED WILL SAY THEY LIKE IT
This is MY freestyle i posted a while back, just to prove i can even rap better than nas right now..

Jay stay dropping real successful shit, while Nas tries everything to land a hit, take the words ''Black Lost'' out of the title of Nas' new song and you have a title for his day to day career called ''Another Lost.''
This nigga would literally die to land one more hit, as if whoring for Young Money wasn't enough.
SOUNDS MORE LIKE NAS HAS LOST !
This shit is straight trash.
Nas came out on fire with Nasty, but the last two songs have gotten progressively worse. Def Jam should force Nas to let Rick Ross pick his beats and overall sound. Even if it won't make the album, why put this trash out? it just lowers anticipation for the album. HORRIBLE MOVE. Let's stop pretending his verses were anything special just cause it's Nas, EVERYTHING about this song is TERRIBLE. This garbage makes ''Braveheart Party'' look like ''Juicy''. This nigga fell off, badly.
wack wtf is this?
LAME!!! Switch the name to Jay and it would've a rating under 1. Hip Hop's are some spineless bitches.
Correct! I'm hated so much in this community. Even though i beat Nas 10 years ago!
This is not the true Nas, the true GOAT and Nas' real form appears on his unreleased shit.
I meant NOT ENOUGH TO MAKE A GOOD SONG
I'm sorry, I'm a nas fan..but this is awful...beat is awful...hook is awful...versed are tight...but that is enought to make a good SONG
i am a Nas fan but this shit is wak as fuck, i hope this not on the album
Hey Nas Fans: When will yall realize that he doesn't and will never give a fuck about his fans? Everybody who supported him since the beginning wants that he works with the likes of Large Pro, Raekwon, Lupe, Premo, AZ, Cormega and releases Lost Tapes 2 etc. What does this nigga do? Turns around and works with the exact rtists who played a big part in destroying Hip Hop, the same ones he accused of killing it. Nigga is a trend-following sellout-bitch, the earlier you learn to deal with it, the better and lesser disappointments you get from this underwhelming clown. Dude would die for a hit and makes pop songs? Good, then try to release a good instead of this forseeable garbage. People always shit on Jay for expanding his audience, say them what is Nas trying to do since Nastradamus? He just doesn't succeed, that's the reason he'll never reach other heigths of success. Nas would never be capable of a Run This Town or Empire State Of Mind, the ability to master both parts of the audiences.
I AGREE! IF THIS WAS JAY Z & EMINEM EVERYONE WOULD SAY THAT THEY FELL OF, BUT WHEN ITS NAS EVERY1 SAYS THAT ITS GOOD!!!!!!!
u nas fans are so fucking dumb, it's unreal, hahaha. this nigga nas been ethering no one but himself for the course of his career after the battle. you don't think jay's laughing like a motherfucker when he hears about nas' legal problems??? they can act like friends, but behind the curtains? be real, this is life. nas resembles an old boxer who always talks about glory things of the past, but can't follow through with other achievements. and don't hit me with that shit: ''b-b-b-but he is a real artist'', there's no way around it, this nigga SHOULD be a mogul by now. putting all jokes aside, nas lost, he dropped illmatic as his debut and been mediocre since then. nobody would follow him anymore if it wasn't for this shit as his debut. niggas always think, come on, this guy dropped illmatic as his debut he must be capable of another classic. niggas always try to handaway that shit: 'b-b-b-but he dropped illmatic' like it gives him a lifelong excuse. nas might be a better MC, i'll be the first one to admit it, but that's not the point. these guys are musicians and public perception is, jay made better music for the past 15 years and that's not something you can talk away. stop it!
Would say the same if my favorite rapper ain't seeing shit that way.
Why give a fuck about public perception?
I love Nas, but this is kinda lame...
idk y this gets so much hate.. nas is gonna be on the radio! nobody excited about that? he's ripping the fuck outta that hoe kelis.. support this man!
lmao. nas stans going extra hard with it.
Forever Esco fan, but this shit is mediocre and does not belong alongside 'Nasty' and 'The Don'
SOO MUCH NAS DICK RIDERS
RELAX EVERYONE! THIS IS NOT ON THE ALBUM!
3.00 and 5 being the most popular rating. What's wrong with yall Nas stans? That's why nobody takes yall seriously. You vote 5 just because it says Nas. No wonder he'll be known as the most overrated by time.
Allways 5 star fo nas even this was not the best. But stilll KING. Respekt that!!! No on its close to....even this song..4 real.
You Nas stans have such an iferiority complex, it's just sad, the wacker the track, the harder his groupie hoes will ride. *scust* Cocksuckers with no sense for critique destroyed Hip Hop.
THAT'S THE REASON NAS WILL CONTINUE WITH THIS WACK SHIT!!! PEOPLLE LIKE YOU DON'T DESERVE THE WORD 'FAN', YOU'RE THE REASON THE HIP HOP WENT DOWN!!! I'M A PASSIONATE REAL FAN CALL WACK SHIT WHEN I HEAR, NOT BECAUSE I HATE, BEACUSE I KNOW NAS IS CAPABLE OF MUCH MORE, I WANT HIM TO GIVE HIS ABSOLUTE BEST WHEN I SUPPORT HIM!!!
this is why hip hop is dead. you dont listen to music you just dickride names
WTF is this wack shit!?
Nas... no bueno.
It seems like hes chosen a different vibe for this sequel. But that chorus is unforgivable.
This sounds like a Big Sean throwaway and that's coming from the guy who gets falesly praised for being real as this garbage shows. Watch his dickriders going all out, trying to talk that wack shit away, but it won't work, sometimes even the last will realize what a phony, fake ass bitch nas. you hear that one-syllabic rhyming and stans have the nerve to say he didn't dumb it down? he chooses the most generic beats you can think of and people say he stays true to himself? look at the terrible hook, his intentions are blatantly obious now. yall should take the the words 'Another Black Girl' out of the tilte and call it a day.
ITS NOT ON THE ALBUM.....
'You aint lost girl, you've clearly got a future, just look at that fat ass of yours'
Nas had the potential to be the best ever, but his albums usually suck so badly that you can't believe that the unreleased is from the same guy. this track is just a testament to his wackness. instead of dropping triple beam verses here and there he comes with this garbage. nothing wrong with pop songs, but make a good one at least, no suprises though, nas always failed at that.
it aint that bad. ladies in the hood are bumping it like hell
god damn, i'm fearing an album worse than HHID. what the fuck is this garbage, nursery-rhyming? SMH. look for wordsworth or skyzoo if you wan't real lyricists who won't sell their soul to reinventing themselves.
how re the lyrics garbage?
Nas could have every top tier producer and what does he do? Releases a track that screams 'money' all over it. But it has always been the same with this nigga, drops a good street single and follows it up with generic pop trash, thought The Don was mediocre, but this is straight out garbage. be prepared for an album full of these types of songs with highlights coming in between the pop shit in the form of 3 or 4.
the don wasnt mediocre it was a beast track
Wow, when will people realise NaS is a fake just out for the money? This is a joke.
at the end of the day its all abt the money.
hahahahahahahaha nas continuing to shit on his fans to get that radio money, dude is such a fake fuck, it's not even funny anymore.
are u realllll???
Something is missing.
this is what happens when da internz are one of ur main producers on the album...lyrics still cool though as always, but its too radio friendly-but he has bills & taxes to pay i guess..hope its not on the album tho..
Co-sign the 2nd anon, no level of lyricism could save this horrible track. Nas ain't even that good on this either.
nobody gives a fuck for lyrics if the rest is generic trash like this. timeless music is great beats and amazing lyrics.
I LOVE THE ONE ON 'IT WAS WRITTEN', BUT DIS!? IM A BIG NAS FAN BUT THIS SHIT SUPER WACK! NAS DONT PUT THIS WACK SHIT ON THE ALBUM PLEASEEEEE!
nas is that nigga!
I TOLD YOU NAS NEED MACK MANE TO PICK HIS BEATS ANYBODY GIVING THIS 5 STARS IS A DICKRIDER THIS SHIT IS TRASH
16 LETTERS YMCMB OVOXO MMG WTB
nas needs to come up with something new Black Girl Lost is one of my favorite tracks from him
Is it Oochie Wally Wally or is it One Mic?
Is it Black Girl Lost or shorty owe you for ice?
one mic is better than any single u put out jay
Nahh niggas, this is just supposed to have a Kanye feel to it, I gotta get back in the game somehow.
GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST found out that this song will NOT, I repeat, WILL NOT be the album Life is Good!!!!!
it looks like nas is dumbing down his lyrics old boy is aint got money he use to have after kelis haha that exspect the usal lyicism.
couldn't make it past the opening chorus...nas usually makes about 50% garbage songs on his albums anyway so whatever still looking forward to his new shit
not bad, he flowin again, beat ehhhh but nas is back!
ouch nas, quit tring to be like jay z and beyonce do your own thing, we love the rugged nas
How is this acting like Jay Z and Beyonce?
Big Nas fan here and I usually defend his vision and songs but can't do it with this one.This song is absolutely terrible.Execution is completely horrible.That hook should be shot point blank in the face,resuscitated and shot again.Black girl lost was one of the worse songs on it was written btw and compared to this part 1 was the song of the century.That's how bad this song is..
JAY - Z ALL DAY GREATEST ALIVE
