CRY AMERICA

Party with villians, a case of Demi-Sec to chase the Henny, Wet any clique, with the semi-tech who want it, Diamonds I flaunt it, chickenheads flock I lace em, Fried broiled with basil, taste em, crack the legs way out of formation, it's horizontal how have em, fuckin me in the Benz wagon, Can it be Vanity from Last Dragon, Grab your gun it's on though, Shit is grimy, real niggaz buck in broad daylight with the broke Mac it won't spray right, Don't give a fuck who they hit, as long as the drama's lit,Yo, overnight thugs, bug cause they ain't promised shit, Hungry-ass hooligans stay on that piranha shit

People say that after Nas’ first album he kind of fell off. That his later albums didn’t have the same impact, but It Was Written was by far one of my favorite Hip-Hop albums of all time. Some of my favorite songs are on this album. If I Ruled the World and Street Dreams are probably the biggest records on the album, but I Gave You Power and The Message are two of the most incredible displays of storytelling and lyrical talent on an album i’ve ever heard. It was written isn’t as good as Illmatic but it’s certainly a great album for it’s genre.

THE GOOD

  • Classic Collab with Lauryn Hill on “If I Ruled the World”
  • Consistent level of creativity
  • The first appearance of The Firm and Mobb Deep on a Nas Album

THE BAD

  • Nothing that stands out


I give It was Written a
9.7 out of 10
NEARLY PERFECT
