Haven’t been able to connect with the Nasir album. Here’s a block of tweets that express my feelings. Time stamp is July 20th:
Finally delving into that Nas. Wasn’t connecting until “A Queens Story.” Verbose-ass song. 
"Accident Murderers," the Nas and Rozay pairing, is top flight words and a cheap, clunky, corny piano beat. #LifeisGood 
"Box of condoms on the counter then she Instagrammed it / guess I ain’t the strictest parent." Dig No I.D.’s "Daughters" beat. #LifeisGood 
@MarcusJMoore:@AThousandGrams Word. That “let me see how many syllables I can fit into this space before the song ends” flow. Didn’t need that. @MarcusJMoore For sure. Nice #LifeisGood review, by the way. http://tinyurl.com/6ow3hfx  
’80s boom. Mary J. Blige blessing the hook. Breezy Nas rapping about bracelets. YES to “Reach Out.” #LifeisGood "World’s An Addiction," is on some daytime soap melodrama telenovela ish. No me gusta. #LifeisGood Is “Summer on Smash” about Jersey Shore? This is bullshit. #LifeisGood 
If you like peach-flavored Ciroc and Swizzy at his most cliche, you’ll love “Summer on Smash.” #LifeisGood 
In conclusion, Nas remains the most comically overrated rapper of all time. #LifeisGood Marcus K. Dowling @marcuskdowling Can’t sleep? Try reading every bad Nas review on the internet. Endless supply of atrocious work written from the wrong perspectives. @marcuskdowling I love the Nas perspective on the record—father, man, legend—but I just can’t get into the music. 
@TrillSmith @TerenceJr @AThousandGrams there’s… actual SLANDER for #LifeIsGood? Are you just trying to be the “unpopular opinion” ATG? smh @TheBlackIcarus @trillsmith @terencejr Every post-Matic Nas record is a Golden Corral buffet. He starts off two for ten. #LifeisGood @TheBlackIcarus @trillsmith @terencejr Anthony Hamilton song blow. 2008 producers. Clunky and tasteless. Raps like he gets paid by the word. @TheBlackIcarus @TrillSmith @TerenceJr Every Nas record has roughly 5.5 strong tracks. He has a one-channel flow: fast, staccato, incensed. @TheBlackIcarus @TrillSmith @TerenceJr …What’s weak: this album comes with a critical narrative—Nas revitalized!—everyone buys into. @TheBlackIcarus @TrillSmith @TerenceJr …”Untitled” was undone by its working title, but a more coherent, passionate work. #exceptSlyFox
