Nore's not the strongest rapper to be forced to carry an entire album on his shoulders, but he's far from the weakest; he's an acquired taste, but those of us who grew up with Queensbridge street tales and Neptunes production acquired it quite a while ago, and, refreshingly, our host's sense of humor has grown a bit savvier with the label switch. Gumar Oz Dubar prod by Hazardis Soundz 08. Recording on his own allowed him to ride off on any flight of fancy he so chose, which, luckily for him, never deviated from his need to discuss violent street activity and random sexual exploits, some of which involved brooms for some reason.
I have a feeling a lot of these artists have so many guests because they or their label are not confident they can carry the whole record alone. However, the final verse comes with a plot twist as Nas discovers that he knows the murder victim who happens to be a convicted felon and drug dealer , but still makes it clear where his loyalty lies as the two handle their business the Queens way.
