Nas :: Street's DiscipleLabel: Sony Urban Music/ColumbiaAuthor: Steve 'Flash' JuonDouble albums are a real mixed bag. Nobody seems to agree when it comes to these distended releases. Some readers say I rated "All Eyez On Me" too low, and "The Gift & the Curse" too high. As a writer I have to admit it's hella challenging to review a double album.

The Guardian - 80
Based on rating 4/5

Although Nasir Jones can't match arch-enemy Jay-Z's commercial firepower, he has accomplished one thing even Beyoncé's beau couldn't: a persuasive double album. A full decade after his landmark debut, Illmatic, the Queensbridge MC re-establishes himself as one of rap's sharpest lyricists. Obviously, the man who called his last album God's Son, and uses the cover of this one to reenact the Last Supper with himself in the starring role, is not exactly immune to hubris, but he downplays the ego-tripping to cast a keen eye over war, Aids, black-on-black violence, the Bush family's shady past and the enduring trials of ghetto life.

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Ten years deep in the rap game, Nas unveiled Street's Disciple, an indulgent album that sprawls across two discs, freewheeling through a dizzying array of ace productions and thoughtful raps. The album is very much a continuation of its predecessor, God's Son: both helmed primarily by producers Salaam Remi and Chucky Thompson, both uncompromising personal statements that make few concessions to the pop market, and both undoubtedly fascinating, if overindulgent. The difference is, Street's Disciple goes a step further, indulging all the more in the creative whims of Nas.
