so the new Nas album is amazing.

I concur.  I think this album warrants a resurrection of the Hip Hop thread!

I think that new Ice Cube album - raw footage, which is soon to come, will also serve hip-hop well.  Be on the look out!

I'm hoping that's a rhetorical question.

yes, it was. Considering Ice Cube's past albums and then his recent movies, I don't think he can make the reverse move happen. We'll see, I guess. He should probably stay on the Queen Latifah plan...make a jazz album or something.

That's Dana Owens to you, Mister.

I saw an interview of Eddie Murphy where he essentially asserted he was going to attempt the same thing, at least stand-up comedy-wise, when he retires from film (which he says he'll do in two-ish years, at age 50).  I'm not betting on it, but I'd love to see a return to anything on par with Raw.

Eddie Murphy needs to regress to his Coming to America/Trading Places days.

Man I loved Coming to America...

umm..............................wasn't he in that Are We Done Yet movie?

 :D

Seriously though, this is like the 5th person who said the Nas album is good...so my whole buying singles off of Itunes just won't cut it.

Ok, so I'm listening to the new Nas album on the way home from seeing the Dark Knight. I'm curious as to how Nas can have a song dedicated to Louis Farrakahn and then basically call Jeremiah Wright a #%@!? Wasn't part the Wright controversy due to Wright's unwavering support of Farrakahn?

...or for that matter, how you can call anyone a #%@! and then wear this:
