It was written [Nov. 6th, 2005|12:44 pm]
Street's Disciple


[music |Wu Tang Clan - one of these days]

ive recently been paying more attention to It was Written. I never gave that album much love other than The Message, I gave u power, and affirmative action. Well Ive been spinning it a lot at work lately, and aside from my supervisor telling me to turn my shit down..its been getting rave reviews from my co-workers. I never thought they would even listen to anything that wasnt ying yang twins or laffy taffy, but they really enjoyed the album.

Lemme break it down...

The message - classic shit..cb4 gusto and all that.

street dreams - im not gonna lie, I love the remix with kellz a lot more, but I think this track is just genius.

I gave you power - Who else could personify a pistol? Pac compared it to a woman, but Nas told its life story.

Nas is coming - Dre beats and Nas lyrics. At first u think this may come out wack..but it came out kinda nice.

black girl lost - More people need to listen to this track..especially chicken head females. I work with a lot of them, and I should burn this track for them and give it to em for christmas.

Also I never noticed that Trackmasters did a heavy percentage of the tracks on this album.

Shit I dont know how I managed to have this album for so long and not actually pay attention to it. I have HEARD it a million times, I just never took the time to LISTEN to it.

What do yall think? I know I aint talkin to myself here.

IWW has always been my favortie NaS album, illmatica is the classic and IWW is my favortie, It basically is the epitome of how music sounded for me when i was in my essence, that classic 96 shit, Take It In Blood sealed the deal for me

This is my second favorite Nas album after Illmatic. I don't know why it got so much hate when it came out.
