Okay Karen Nas is a legend get that through your head. Second of all you reviewed a Death Cab for Cutie album before this and for some strange reason you rated it higher, in otherwards it should come from a less biased sorce. Third of all you compared nas' style to Ludacris which is in fact Ludacris thats like comparing Patrick Stewart to William Shatner, Sorry Picard but Kirk came first and you have no chance of beating him out. Fourth of all you mocked his monotone voice, hello have you ever listened to Nas. I think Karen should learn more about her subjects before she writes pathetic reviews.
