Nas wraps up the day with a "Life Is Good" leak for all his "trapped in the '90s niggas." This already screams "classic."

    The ultimate grungy rap hit of the 2010's.

  • Roberto

    An undeniable classic that is very nostalgic of the 90's and brings out a side in Nas we haven't completely seen during his career in the 2010's.

  • Anonymous

    classic-ish, real dope

  • bisquic

    This song is amazing. One bad line away from being perfection. "Nas must have naked pics of God or something" .....c'mon Nas Still 5 stars

  • gutter man

    rather listen to cam'ron, a-mafia, jr writer, juicy j or the new kayslay-change of the guard album. this nas shit is PG13 for you mainstream clowns. nas is the fakest ever since he switched up and did street dreams in that pink track suit. cant beleive how many fools worship this false idol basic rapper with bad taste in beats,. seriously, dude has money and connections and cant choose enough dope beats to make an album bang.

  • NAS - STAY

    Peace to the Five Percenters, online engine inventors Shout to them niggas, family men, bringin home dinners Watch out for desperate lonely women, hurt ya happy home Miserable and alone, kissable, nice to bone She not the type deserving of a throne Her beauty is her curse, she fuck for shoes and a purse Make me a movie first, can watch you on my phone I shop in Barcelona, I spend some nights in Rome Feel like a knight from England, thats what I named my son: Knight He was born to be one, thats how my game was won White 740 Beamer, licked by an angels tongue Im livin dangerous son, she got a man, a famous one Honey be pocket watchin, she got a lot of options Hard to make up her mind decidin which baller to rock with Hot to death, slim (?), but Im not impressed She got the hottest sex, so I guess Imma just Stay Even though I dont like you, next Friday night cant wait to fight you Locked up I would knife you, dont fuck with you Last month I even bucked at you, you got locked I felt bad, wait, do I got love for you? I might kill you, but do I got love for you? I want you dead under 6 feet of soil At the same time, want you here to witness me while you in misery We hate each other, but its love, what a thug mystery Years ago they ate the heart of a slain enemy We enemies, but your hatred could never enter me Some seek fame cause they need validation Some say hatin is confused admiration Spotlight on me, I still look twenty Still get money, lady killer pushin a Bentley Maybe niggas could see too much of they failures through a nigga who realer I dont like you near bruh, but I need you to Stay

    No need to even comment on this? but hey fuck it...! Nas murked this track and tore this shit down to shreds. I was kinda mad that AZ didn't feature on this coz those two in the booth are a deadly duo like the chef and ghostface but i guess with that kind of deliverance who needs it? this felt like listening to nyc state of mind again or some shit. Thanx ESCO for bringing back the era that i grew up listening to true Rap music the 90's.5 star all the way and fuck what the haters say or think. Nasty is definitely doing hip hop true justice. If u dont agree eat a D**k No HOMO

    • Anonymous

      another dumbass jay-z stan making shit up to make himself feel better. Was it confirmed AZ was on LIG? No it was all rumours therefore he wasn't "scrapped". Second, Nas has worked with a variety of lyricists to artists with mainstream appeal. You're just saying nas is scared to work with rappers he has not worked with in the past because as a hater that's your first instinct. I can say the same for every other rapper, they are scared to work with any rapper they have not worked with previously

    What an amazing song. Nas is finally back and ready to take mainstream to another level. After two disastrous albums, he has woken up to himself about his music and is ready for the masses once more.

    • tbones

      Cosignee @Tiido n anon, its too many simpletons out thr. Nas is obviously an artist at heart, thats why he touches on topics his peers wldnt even dare to touch in his music. And when he drops good albums lik HHID n particularly Untitled, and recently distant Relatives, peeps are quick to slag him off cos its not another Illmatic. Even Nastradamus was a good album although it prolly comes last in his discography.

    • Anonymous

      just because he wasn't aiming for the masses with his last two albums doesn't make them disastrous...untitled was a great album, HHID had a few good songs and was average by his standards

    • TiiDo

      Co-sign Tbones. Hip Hop is Dead was a good all-round album, & Untitled was very good at best, underrated if you ask me. The last wack album Nas dropped was Nastradamus...

    • Tbones

      Disastrous?? i bet u dnt knw wat that means. HHID and Untitled were 2 dope conceptual albums dat was well executed. Cos u and majority of the world are not ready to face issues such as race dnt mean other didnt feel. Lastly,u sound like dem soundscan ninjas, for ur info, those two albums debuted no 1 on billboard. #simpletonniggas.

      LOL. Wow. The only guys who re-write history are Nas groupies. People just too young or really acting like they totally forgot the hell he caught about 12-13 years ago? He releases a few mediocre, overpromoted albums after that and is the GOAT out of nowhere? LMAO. Nobody cared about Illmatic around the time it dropped and IWW was deemed the biggest sellout piece of shit ever. But yeah, internet lames who weren't around then stay revisioning Nas' career.

    BossANon "Dude wack as fuck with lines like "my shit is butter for the bread they wanna toast me"." The Meaning For That One Line A carb-based metaphor: Butter; is slang for crack, hustlers call it butter because of the way it melts. Must keep in mind that this song has nothing to do with rapping, it is only a hustlers anthem. Bread; means money, and his competitors want to toast(shoot) him The verse is actually used as a double entendre (having two meanings in one). There is the surface content which is correctly defined, but he is also suggesting that his persona/style/being is butter, spelled butta -meaning cool, good, best, refined; since bread in this verse is referring to money, and toast to shoot; Jay is saying that my life if so good, for the right price people want to kill him Not suxh a bad lyricist now is he you dumbfuck!

    Man maybe someday I can know my music as well as the next guy who says Nas has only a single [Illmatic] classic album, that he got totally outclassed on DR from a guy whose raps are worse than his singing [though Damien is solid], lost the battle for signing to Jay, is worse than Jay because he declines to adopt a single personality [OH BEHAVE HOV] in every rhyme, and so on and so forth. Keep Jays name out of this conversation. Jays run post Black Album has been the most pathetic crash from greatness in the history of rap music and you morons just let it aside and proceed to claim Blueprint 3 is above Stillmatic. This track is an absolutely banger btw

    • JuniorB

      Do you honestly think that making music for the masses will result in making the best music? You sir, are delusional!!! You see, Nas is considered one of the greatest if not the greatest, because, not only is he a great M.C which you can't deny whether you like him or not, he continues to push the boundaries of an ARTIST. He continually creates new concepts (i.e Fried Chicken, I Gave You Power, Project Roach, etc.) Unafraid to speak about the social ills of his people and has the most respect amongst his peers (i.e Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Kanye, etc.) So it doesn't matter what you or I say on a message board about Nas' legacy. The facts remain that he is probably going to do down as the G.R.O.A.T

  • Rex

    Time to end this G.O.A.T. foolishness. In this constant debate about Jay-Z being the best ever I read things like "Nas will destroy Jay-Z" or "Eminem got a better flow than Jay" Those are OPINIONS. When will you fools learn that you can't win a debate with OPINIONS. Every rapper has a different style based on where they are from, the time period in which they were most successful, and their unique personality. We all can go on for days about our personal preferences but in a debate criteria like this is completely IRRELEVANT and automatically BIASED. The only way to win a debate is with cold hard FACTS. And the fact of the matter is that, when you weigh all of the tangible criteria (Sales, Critical Acclaim, Consistency, Longevity, and Impact) Jay-Z makes the strongest case for the G.O.A.T. Eminem has sold nearly twice as much as Jay-Z, and he is Jay's equal when it comes to longevity and impact. But Em lacks the consistency or critical acclaim that Jay-Z has (Im not talkin cult/fanboy classics, Im talkin CERTIFIED classics. XXL/Rolling Stone/Source approved) Eminem is VERY close though. Nas has enjoyed more critical acclaim and more overall respect in the hip-hop community through the years. And he's definitely equal to Jay with longevity and impact. But he hasn't been no where near as much of a consistent presence in hip-hop as Jay has. And he is obviously lacking in the sales department. Lil Wayne just may be the most consistent rapper of all time. He's no slouch when it comes to longevity and impact either. His glaring flaw? In his 12 year career Lil Wayne has yet to drop a truly critically acclaimed classic album (and it can be done in this climate. just look at kanye's discography). Also, contrary to popular beleif, Wayne lacks in the sales department. Sure, Tha Carter III and IV are blockbuster albums, but his OVERALL sales of 10 mil US pale in comparison to Jay-Z's 31 mil. 2pac is a touchy subject. When it comes to impact, pac takes the cake. No other rapper touched the world like 2pac did. He, like Em, has also sold more than Jay and he was very consistent in his time. Sadly, 2pac passed before his time which allowed Jay-Z to surpass him in longevity and critical acclaim. LL Cool J was the prototype for what a G.O.A.T. could be. He has enjoyed the most longevity, and he was fairly consistent, but his sales, acclaim and overall impact are no where near the likes of 2pac, Eminem, and ofcourse Jay-Z. Biggie, Rakim, Common, Snoop, the list goes on. All of these MC's are great but none of them have the total G.O.A.T. package like Jay-Z does. Jay-Z is the 3rd highest selling rapper of all time, and the richest. He's one of the most acclaimed (perhaps only rivaled by his boy Kanye). He dropped multi-platinum albums YEARLY from 96'-03', and he is still going strong today. He's been in the game since 88'. He's impacted hip-hop in countless ways from starting one of the 1st successful MC-owned record labels, to being the 1st non-athlete with a signature shoe, to surpassing the likes of Elvis with #1 albums. Jay-Z is without question the Greatest MC Of All Time. Period. You don't have to listen to him everyday (Im currently on my Kendrick wave). You don't even have to like him. But for goodness sake, RESPECT THE FACTS

    • Blue Guru

      @JuniorB and @Rex Thank you for finally putting some intelligence into these arguments lol, im so tired of reading these comments that dont really say shit. And even though i respect you rex for that answer i have to agree with juniorb that you cant judge a musician based on sales but on their musical ability. jay-z was on top of the game for so long because he knew how to play the game and he did it right. he was in it to get rich, now i love jay-z dont get me wrong i bump his songs all the time but hes a pop culture rapper, he only raps about the hottest things out at the time. but hey thats how he got so powerful in the game so u cant knock it. but Nas made music that really had a message and opened peoples eyes to whats goin on. shit when i hear "N.Y. State of Mind" i feel like im in queensbridge. nas' real problem is that he never embraced his role in hip hop. he was always just trying to compete with the ballers and shit in the game and get that bling. but that dont change the fact that nas creates the opportunity for change in this country. when he was gonna drop the album "Nigger" with that name everybody bugged out but it opened up a social commentary on the use of the word in this country.... whats jay done?

    • JuniorB

      I can appreciate that you have articulated your argument so eloquently, but your basis of your case cannot be adequate based on tangibles such as record sales and number one albums. There is no scientific method to measure art. Contrary to what many believe, many artists that have been herald as great were not necessarily appreciated in their era. If you take the great Vincent Van Gogh for instance, he was not a man of wealth or praise (see. Bedroom in Arles 1888), yet he sacrificed acclaim and accolades to focus on his craft. Now, with reference to Nas, if you take his 1994 release Illmatic, it was poorly received by the masses and was considered a flop to industry standards. Consider that it took roughly 2 years to make (which was pretty much the length of an artists creative cycle) and he had an allstar cast of producers to boot; Illmatic was destined to be a failure. We can now all agree that Illmatic was the cornerstone of 90s Hip-Hop along with a short list of others. Jay-Z on the other hand is indeed a great rapper, but has played it pretty safe for much of his career. I will take nothing away from his body of work, but to compare Jay-Z to Nas is asinine! You cannot compare someone that has never taken a risk creatively, with the exception of Watch The Throne (which in my opinion was Kanyes vision,) to an artists that will sacrifice his reputation, longevity and face his harshest critics to put forth his best heartfelt material. That my friend, is what you call creative integrity! A great part of Jay-Zs longevity is due to him being a shroud businessman and aligning himself with artist that have their time in the sun (see. Talib Kwelis Get By Remix, Juveniles Ha Remix, Drakes Light Up, etc.) Couple that with the fact that Jay-Z & Diddy have tactically monopolized NYC that there has not been an artist outside of 50 Cent (which has sold more than Jay & Nas might I add) that can reach the upper echelon of the game. Jay-Z also borrows B.I.G rhymes which by most hip-hop purist standard is a cardinal sin! I will end this on this last noe. You cant compare Nas with any rappers in the game because, his social activism, lyrical content, subject matter & storytelling supersedes anyone that is out right now. Even Jay (who I admire) is monotonous in his content. How many songs can you talk about being richer than anyone without people not growing tired of it? Follow @JuniorB

    • @CJonno90

      I'm not ignorant enough to claim who the G.O.A.T is I just like you said have my own opinion Eminem is MY favourite & just to argue one point you made about "Critically Acclaimed Albums" Em 3 (TheSlimShadyLP, TheMarshallMathersLP, TheEminemShow) Jay 3 (ReasonableDoubt, TheBlueprint, TheBlackAlbum)... and also you say Nas has enjoyed more critical acclaim than Em & Jay only Illmatic has recieved the critical acclaim of the said albums above... BTW all 3 of these are in my top 10 MCs of all time & I place Nas above Jay so I ain't bias.

I still listen to all of Nas' albums today (even Nastradamus) because you'll always find stuff with substance. Most of Jay'S albums are 3/4 pop songs...Let's be honest.

      Rakim is the god mc and he is lyrical as hell. but if you go back and listen to what he says its all pretty basic. now dont get me wrong, he was WAYYYYYY ahead of his time, he really brought lyricism to the forefront of hiphop imo and without him there wouldnt be a nas but i really feel like nas took rakims lyricism and ran with it and made it something to gawk at cuz homies just too nice. praise be to Rakim Allah tho, hes the man

      IMO none of you know what you are talking about since you didnt include Rakim. Rakim is the G.O.A.T. The God MC. All The MC's you named above will name Rakim in their top 5 hands down.

    • divine1-2

      If I took more time out to mention other artists, I woulda defly named Gza and Andre 3K.. .great mentions. I'm unsure of which era of Hip-Hop y'all are from, but I'm 37 and been avid Hip-Hop "lyrical listener" since '86. I always kept my ear to the street NOT the radio. With that said I would add the likes of: Kool G. Pun Kane KRS Kool Keith *Rakim Just to name a few off top. All in which are in my top 15 (and prolly most of y'all's) of ALL TIME, with Nas at the very top. *It was difficult for me to place Nas above Rakim for YEARS. But I believe Nas took the crown as best MC after the "Hip-Hop Is Dead" joint. Also, I believe Torae is the very best of the new cats. "For The Record" was the last SOLID album (front to back) I've heard along with the O.C./Apollo joint.

      Considering Nas is a better storyteller than Eminem is one big compliment if you think of the likes of Stan, As The World Turns, Kim, Brain Damage, '97 Bonnie & Clyde, Cum On Everybody etc.

      Nas and Em are both insanely talented lyricists. Nas is a better story teller, Em is better with wordplay, IMHO.

    • Entropy

      *Caveat.... I was referring to lyricists in the same class as the above listed (ie. Nas, Tech, PM, 3k), I am not expressing as a fact that they are individually or collectively BETTER than Nas.

    • Entropy

      Don't forget RA Scion (common market), Shad, Redman, and the Gza

    • Anonymous

      LYRICALLY, Nas is probably better than Eminem but in ability to craft a song Em wins... On terms of flow, when both are on top of their game THAT would be a hard decision... but I would say Em, but then I listened to The Slim Shady LP a few hours ago & I ain't listened to Illmatic for about 6 months I'm waiting until like a week before Life Is Good drops to get really hyped for the album. Great shout for Black Thought though SOOO underrated...

    • Anonymous

      Your opinion doesn't matter if you didn't at least Andre 3000...

    • divine1-2

      Nas is better than the Em's, Hov's, etc's that's in the game. I would acknowledge Black Thought, Pharoahe Monch and Immortal Technique before Em', though..I think they're lyrically better than Em. I am an Em fan, but that's just MY opinion.

    No disrespect to Nas and No ID but this track is predictable. The beat sounds like a thousand others. When Illmatic dropped it was unlike anything else. This track just sounds like Nas is trying to emulate himself. Its cool but thats about it. This reminds me of classic jazz artists stopped innovating when they got older.

    maybe its just me but the run up to the album just reminding me of HHID and then looking into too much. had the tasters in Where Yall At/Nasty, single in Hip-Hop Is Dead/The Don joint with the dude whos kinda seen as the next top guy Hustlers/Accidental Murders (just glad that bitch Game is nowhere near this now).. from reading about it we know the production got quite old school sensibilities like the new joint with Large Pro and that The Train song apparently he had on joints like Where Are They Now etc.. on HHID and that turned out to be incredibly uneven. well see... just want a good album.

    • SayWhat!?

      He didn't just do a song with "the next big guy coming up". Game already droppped The Documentary and Doc's Ad in which Nas was featured in. And did you even listen to that song? Game's verse was too sick. I don't even know why people hate on that guy. Game is one of the best. As for this album, Nas said it was going to be personal and about him. And so far this album is sounding like a classic. Game and Nas are a dope combination. Two of my favourite artists. Wish they'd do more songs together

  • Obviously

    ILLMATIC=Greatest of all time Nas= 1)Too many personalities switch ups over the years 2)Cant choose the proper album production to save his life. 3)Post Illmatic his albums NEVER NEVER have a consistent sound to them. 4)His rhymes more than often sounds lazy like he's high all the time AGAIN ILLMATIC WAS THE GREATEST MUSICAL OPUS ANY MAN HAS EVER CREATED NAS ON THE OTHER HAND IS HIGHLY OVERATED.

    • Anonymous

      1) Going from subject to subject because you have run out saying things in an original way is NOT creative. Nas is ALWAYS riding the actual trend. And if he wouldn't, you would still suck him off, you worthless whore. 2) Nah, he actually picks horrible beats for the most time. That is not an opinion, that is a straight fact. What do you think was the reason of Nas' real fans moving away from him to discover other artists? Saigon, O.C. and The Roots just proved that you can be sonically cohesive while you're still being conceptually diverse. But that's the whole thing with you fucking stans, you will even try to deny his biggest, most obvious flaws. 3) If you buy an album you want to hear something that soaks you into another world, lyrically, sonically and conceptually. And that's EXACTLY where Nas ALWAYS failed at. His albums are all over the place. This nigga been throwing horribly executed sellout attempts in between concept tracks that destroy the whole sequencing, just like he'll do on this album with Summer On Smash. You're a fucking retard, you can't even distinguish a compilation from and album, that's how freaking dumb you are. 4) Oh. WOW. Picking out the best songs of an artist to prove what? That he's good? Fuck outta here. And you're simply turning around every single, justified criticism because you proudly suck off a guy that isn't and will never be aware of your existence. 5) Why are you bringing up Illmatic? Bingo. Because everybody else already said it and it's the cool/safe thing to do. Try further to fit in instead of having an own opinion. Eat your shit. BTW, Gayhova? HOW originial, seriously, how did you come up with that? You must be some kind of genius. Typical over-sensitive ass Nas stans. Who mentioned Jay on here, besides you? You just exposed yourself, you embarrassing clown. Nas stans always need someone better to big up the clown to bring the attention to somebody else. You share one thing with your idol, you're just as insecure.

      1)NO its NOT called "growing and rapping about different things.." its called "Lazy as Fuck rhymin". 2)His beats are dope you are correct its Just that 90% of them dont fit NAS and his style. 3)A cohesive sound does NOT mean everything sounds the same. It means that they have a competent producer(not a Nas Stan) on board that says what goes and does not fit in the musical format, so the music has a organic flow to it. You could tell that Nas always has his beats shipped to him through UPS or FedEx out dis MF'er. The producer never there. 4)You're just cherry pickin his amped up shit. Ghandi got hyped too nigga. 5)YOU A DUMP PIECE A ADOLESCENT SHIT, GO SUCK YOUR MOMMA TITI, YOU TITI BOY LOVIN, DRAKE EYE-BROW WAXIN DICK RIDER.

      1) It's calling growing and rapping about different things you faggot. How are you going to diss someone for being creative? If he was rapping about money or how he's the best rapper alive on every album like Jay-Z, would still complaining like a little nerd pussy. 2)There is ZERO wrong with this song or the majority of his beats. You're just following what other people say on the internet like a fucking sheep. 3)Why do they have to have consistent sound?? When I buy an album I want to hear different things, new styles, new music. Again don't be a fucking idiot 4) Now you're just making shit up. Have you heard the don, one mic, undying love, anything this dude has done or are you just making up shit because you like to complain?? You're a fucking pussy boy and probably a gayhova stan. You obviously haven't heard any of Nas' music...I doubt you ever heard Illmatic. Typical internet faggot teenager

    • Anonymous

      Nah, I bet Cormega wrote most of that shit. Illmatic, while being a masterpiece, is THE reason why Nas is unbelievably overrated to this day. The production played a way bigger part than Nas. Seriously, who could drop the ball on an album that's filled with these type of producers in their prime?
