I Am...The Autobiography (Edited)
Released: Apr 1999
Nas' third solo album, I Am... continues his trend of alienating early fans while still hitting the charts and winning over new listeners. Some tracks ("NY State Of Mind Pt. 2") display the lyrical genius he's known for, while others ("Hate Me Now") come off like overblown cameo-fests. Also features the excellent Premier cut, "Nas Is Like."
