    what kind of rapper names themselves nut-rageous??? smmfh

    and someone should put out a mixtape chronicling the big/pac east/west puff/suge rivalry, w/ diss tracks in chronological order and dialogue from interviews filling in the blanks as best as possible.

    i would do this myself but….i have none of the resources to make this happen

    @ iceberg , good info, but quote ur source on the gods son Noah allegory. I read that in the net years ago. Unless of course, you’re the original author.

    Amp Geez this is for you

    “My next few albums, instead of projects,
    There’ll be a difficult test inside the cover for the mind’s optics”

    If you recall, Illmatic and It was written had QB in the background. This freestyle dropped before Stillmatic was released, so lets take a look at the covers of the next couple albums and see what he’s talking about.

    2001 was the bling era. Rocafella and cash money had the game in a choke hold, the art was removed from hip hop. It was all about singles, champagne, and jewlery.

    Nas has on every single piece of platinum jewlery he every bought, including the infamous QB piece. The New york city skyline is in the background with dark clouds above, looking like theres about to be a bad storm.

    Pay attention to his right hand, hes got 4 fingers stretched out. These 4 fingers are representing his previous 4 official studio albums (Illmatic, It was Written, Nastradamus, I Am).

    A pigeon stands next to him, looking right at him. For now, we’re still in the dark about what he’s trying to say…but going back to the line he specifically said “my next few albums”

    God’s Son

    Now the message is complete. In 2001 Nas was making a biblical reference with the Stillmatic cover. The dark clouds symbolise a storm is coming, particularly over NYC. That was the bling era when hip hop lost its essence. Jayz and his Crystal raps were coming to an end. It was time for a change. Just as god sent Noah down to earth in desperate times to save Gods creations and start fresh….God’s Son was sent down to save hip hop and start fresh.

    Looking at the God’s Son cover, there is a flood in the background. Noah had to build Noah’s arch to save the animals during the flood, Nas made this album. All the platinum he was wearing, the fly velour suit, is gone. He is shirtless with 2 pieces of gold jewlery. This symbolises the end of the bling era. Tracks like ‘Destroy and Rebuild’ show Nas’ disgust with the state of hip hop.

    Looking at the back of the cover, the Moses comparison is confirmed. In the bible Noah was told to save 2 of each animal…Nas holds 2 doves with 2 pieces of gold on. Doves and gold symbolising purity…bringing back the essence of hip hop. Nas representing the leader and the chosen one

    Also, have you ever read Queens Get the Money? Most of ur Big/Pac analysis is contained within it. With the exception of the Bigs direct affiliation with the crips, which is the part of ur essay that contains the most conjecture.

    Ur Puffy docu sounds intriguing though, but it kinda sounds like dry snitching too.

    This is an amazing album that came at me out of left field. Before I received an advance promo out of the blue, I was unfamiliar w/ these dudes. Nevertheless, I was blown away from the first moment the sounds came out of the speakers. Fabulous music that blends great hip hop beat making cool Brazil vibes and dope rapping. It came at just the right time, I’m really digging comps like Black Rio 2 (Strut) on the one hand and great hip hop albums like Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II, so to have this come out of nowhere was a mind blower. On a side note, it’s got some of the hands down best interludes/intro/outros on any hip hop album I’ve heard in awhile- Great beats with cool cats like Caetano Veloso and Tom Ze breaking down the Brazilian aesthetic, plus English translations in the booklet! A music geeks dream come true. I would have definitely laid out the cash for this one if I didn’t get a promo first. I’ll look for it on vinyl. Big up to the PR posse. Anyway, Don’t listen to me, buy this album and you will agree.
