I see that with some of the earlier tracks, but not too much overall. A better example of this would be Lasers, but that wasn't really Lupe's fault. IIW was a good album. The Message was hands down the best track.

Overall...I'd give it about a 7.5.
IWW is usually consensus Nas's 2nd or 3rd best album, doesn't get dogged at all. Only thing in his discography that's a skip to me is I am/Nastradamus/Street's Disciple/Untitled

Is DJ Dramas album worth checking for?
