Not all his fault. The original I Am...double album would've been an incredible album. Not his fault it got bootlegged heavily and the record label made him scrap a lot of songs, record new ones, etc. leaving us with a slightly disappointing I Am... and a very disappointing Nastradamus.

If you take all his best songs from 98-99, off of I Am..., Nastradamus, and what ended up on Lost Tapes, you would basically have the intended I Am... album.

He didn't really fall off at all in terms of what he actually recorded at that time.
