Date: April 1999

I Am... had one of the most misleading album titles in rap history. Because after listening to it, it was almost impossible to gauge exactly who Nas was. Was he the guy rhyming his butt off on "Nas Is Like" or was he the guy looking for radio spins on "You Won't See Me Tonight"? It was a confusing time for Nas. But despite that, this album did have enough bright moments on it to keep even the most critical of Nas fans happy.
