Nas: It Was Written
Buy! - (Columbia)
Strong followup to one of the more auspicious rap debuts of the 90s. A variety of producers are used, but they're all adept at creating the same kind of sparse and smooth sound with a touch of menace that gave the debut its edge. It's also a great backdrop for some more engaging street tales told by a fella whose flow and tone still recall Rakim, and he's just as true to the game. 7/15/1996 - Don Yates
