The Lost Tapes (Edited)

by Nas
The Lost Tapes by Nas
Released: Sep 2002
Label: Columbia
A collection of outtakes and B-sides, The Lost Tapes is mesmerizing. On "Doo Rags," rose-tinted nostalgia is undercut by sorrow as Nas dredges up everything from Vietnam to Shell Gas Company's colonialist overtures. "Drunk By Myself" is a harrowingly intimate examination of the cost of alcoholism. It's Nas at his most vulnerable, and riveting.
