    Great Write Up Miss Peas

  • Mike Tomin

    1. Pac 2. Nas 3. BIG 4.Jay

  • Jbob

    Jay-Z is a better artist overall but Nas does have certain advantages over him that's it

  • david

    Nice review of an amazing album, wish there were more albums these days of a similar quality

  • http://www.2dopeboyz.com Excalibur

    jbob: Better artist how. Album quality? Lyrics? Subject matter? Realness? Ok Jay-Z gives a better live show than Nas, but that's it really. In the last ten years he has blown right past dude.

  • marty mcfly

    The album is dope but A Queens Story is an incredible song though. As far as all the comparison shit goes lets just say they both dope. If you gotta pick between Nas and Jay for the hip hop crown, everybody got their own reasons for who they think is the greatest between them but outside of those two there aint really no comparison with anybody else on a lyrical level overall.

  • marty mcfly

    Then I see the comment like "In the last ten years he has blown right past dude", and im thinking to myself. What? but its all good.

  • ftoij

    nas is a fraud for stealing someone's else's name and identity.but i like some of his music.

  • Ori

    its funny how yall giving miss peas props just because she liked the album.

    where as if she gave it a less than steller review, yall would be dogging the fuck out of her.

    and nas was 21 when illmatic came out.... not 17.

    @ Ori, damn I thought for the first time I wasn't gonna see a Miss_Peas hater and then here you are....

    and she was referring to Nas being a touted hip hop prodigy at 17 when he appeared on the Main Source album and he was 20 when Illmatic came out. Also @ ftoij, what are you talking about???

    Oh shit...a good write up on 2dope!?!?!? Big ups to Miss_Peas

  • http://soundcloud.com/ThermosMC ThermosMC

    dope write up! I hope to see more of these out of you guys!

  • yes i’m vouching for the nigga, i have nothing better to do but troll you

    @dizzythumper! why do i feel like you were deliberately looking for a hater and just placed the label on that one guy? nowhere in dude's comment did it hate on miss peas.

  • fidel_cashflow

    Life is good is mad boring ! All the singles that he released are about his daughter or his wife. He is embarrassing them and the cover of the album is just a wack publicity stunt. The best song on the album is Nasty and that's just about it..He's wordplay is 0 on this album. I'm expecting more from Nas. I want him to evolve, take chances and bring something new but I guess not everybody can keep it fresh.

  • marty mcfly

    ^^^So what album did you hear this year that wasn't so boring, had better singles, a better cover, wasn't about publicity in any way, had better wordplay, had evolved passed Nas level, took more chances and was more fresh then Life Is Good so far this year? Dont worry Ill wait.... Exactly. Again, im not saying it's Nas best album but I highly doubt we'll hear a another album as complete as this until around Sept. Maybe

  • Fidel_Cashflow

    Killer Mike RAP Music was 10x better than Life is good, ab-soul's Creative Control, El-P's Cancer for cure, etc...

  • marty mcfly

    Hell No, Killer Mikes album is not better and I actually like that album but truth is it is not better the Life Is Good as a whole. Killer Mike might be able to write good lyrics but delivering them and then picking good beats for them is a different story. Creative Control is also not better then Life is Good LOL, and Cancer for Cure is probably the wackest album of EL-Ps career by far and anybody who has ever heard his other albums would know what I mean but you gave it a good try though. Now if you woulda said Gangrenes Vodka & Ayahuasca then maybe but Ab and El-P? Not even close

  • marty mcfly

    Matter fact EL-Ps album was just wack period. Just because something is underground doesn't automatically mean its better.

  • suck it

    ^^ *Control System.

  • zachariah

    Wordplay was lacking, which was a suprise, but the storytelling was impeccable. Brilliant and the whole thing flowed well minus that one piece of trash. I'd put it up against American Gangsta, it will be interesting to see if he can best it in the future, whereas Jay has failed there. Sample-driven hip-hop for the win.

  • marty mcfly

    It cant say something is a failure if your using it as a measuring stick to compare with something else your suggesting is better. Especially if you start your argument out with "wordplay was lacking"....

  • marty mcfly

    YOU cant...

  • marty mcfly

    @zachariah, Oh I get it, your saying that Jay hasn't made an album better the American Gangster in the last few years. Thats probably true on a cohesive level but hey BP3 and WTT were just put together differently. Just like the first 3 Outkast albums sound totally different from each other. I dont think it would be wise for anybody to try and outdo the overall concept of American Gangster cause that would be too difficult on many levels. Just like it would be hard to try to outdo It Was Written

  • alex

    Beyond exceptional write up. Well spoken Miss Peas

  • Kush

    This was terribly written, I don't even know what you guys are talking about saying "dope write-up!".

  • Sideshow Mel

    There always gotta be one. Kush, Shut the Fuck Up Stupid!
