Nas' first album in six years drops tomorrow.

I am on the verge of tears.

But what is with all these albums Kanye's produced only being 7 tracks long?

I've never been so happy but fuming at the same time, 7 tracks after a 6 year absence?

They better all be classics.

Kanye is trying to be on some Illuminati ish since 7 is the number of completion or divine perfection. Also makes sense since "Adam and Eve" is a track on the album.

RIP

Definitely ain't gonna be tears of joy.

Kanye came through on the beats, but Nas let Nas down.

All his ice through the years cooled his fire.

The 7 track formula is here to stay. Big fan of dropping 7 great tracks as opposed to filler

Ain’t heard the new Nas album but wouldn’t be surprised if it ain’t great, lost his mojo completely

Not really, his last album prior to this was one of his best ever.

Wasn't a fan of Kanye's beats, Pusha T album was produced far better.

No it isn't.

No one else is going to make 7 track albums besides maybe Kanye.

Just because an album is 7 songs doesn't mean they will all be great, just make a proper full length album like always but make sure it's a good album.

Don't have to worry about filler.

Every G.O.O.D music project for the foreseeable future will be 7 tracks

I’m imaging everyone else will follow suit

You think the rest of the rap world will just copy Kanye?

Why would you want Kendrick or Drake to put out 7 track albums instead of 15-18?

Bizarre imo.

No one is going to stop making albums and put out EPs just because Kanye did some experimental shit.

Haven't Drake's past two albums been nearly 20 tracks each?

You can't even vibe fully with a 20 minute "album", simply too short.

Fvck that.

Like he couldn't have made 12 quality tracks for Pusha T.

Where did you listen to it at? Just saw he dropped another.

I have his last one, which was pretty recent too, and it was ok. You can always hear/see is lyrical ability but that doesn't always translate into a good song, and I think that album had a bit of that problem.

It's on Spotify.

His last album revival has been burnt to a crisp by this.

I'm listening through again and I've got that same wonder I had with his early stuff.

Half way through quite a few verses now, I've had to pull it back just to process how fast but how clearly he's rapping.

I genuinely think the reception to his last album and the state of mumble rap becoming popular rap has pissed him off so badly, it's released that same demon inside that made em the em we love.

If you love the art of hip hop, find a way to listen to this album.

There's only one tune that's jarred me massively so far and that's down to a trash beat.

Kids going sleep now, so it's getting a full uninterrupted play through.
