Nas' "Nasir" Album Draws Adulation & Criticism On Twitter

Nas’ 11th studio album, Nasir, was unveiled at a listening party under the Brooklyn Bridge on Thursday (June 14). Featuring seven tracks and Kanye West in the role of executive producer, the Illmatic legend’s follow-up to 2012’s Life Is Good is already getting rave reviews on Twitter.

The word “classic” is getting thrown around like rice at a wedding.

Several Twitter users were impressed by the Slick Rick and Richard Pryor samples on “Cops” and praised ‘Ye’s production skills. 

However, not everyone was feeling Nasir. In light of a recent interview Nas’ ex-wife Kelis did with Hollywood Unlocked, many people chose to boycott the album.

During the interview, the “Milkshake” singer accused Nas of being a physically abusive alcoholic during their marriage. The two are currently embroiled in a contentious custody battle over their 8-year-old son Knight.
