Nas drops his "Greatest Hits"
November 6 was a good day for music. Along with the twin soundtracks to the modern classic American Gangster, yesterday also saw the release of Nas' Greatest Hits album. Thirteen years after his solo debut, it's about time that a Best Of came out and the album is recommended for anyone who has never listened to Nas. Some clunkers are in it, though, including "Got Ur Self A..." and "Hate Me Now" (a decent song that Puff Daddy made terrible). "Surviving the Times" and "Bridging the Gap" make up for it, though, and hopefully this will help maintain the hype for when his upcoming album comes out (if it comes out with his planned title).
Rolling Stone had a feature on the rap legend and his thoughts on each of the songs included on the disc. Read the whole thing.
