Complex Says: On Nastradamus, Nas was looking to reinvent himself. Instead, he got away from what his fans loved most about him. Earlier in his career, he was revered as a gifted street poet who could detach himself from the scene and write so vivldly that fans felt they were enduring the struggle along with him.
But “Nastradamus” was a blatant reach for radio play, abandoning the gritty lyricism listeners had come to expect. Rapping a poppy chorus over a playful beat, this rap prophet sounded like he was more interested in profits.
