Nas has never really shied away from dealing with controversial issues in his music. Even on his more commercial attempts like I Am... and Nastradamus, Nas slipped conscious records into the mix. But on Street's Disciple, the first and only double album of his career, Nas had even more room to explore his opinions on political and socio-economic issues. The result was songs like "A Message to the Feds, Sincerely, We the People," "American Way," and "These Are Our Heroes."
