Reason #2: The changes in Nas' life give him plenty to vent about.
From the troubles he's had raising his teenage daughter to his very public divorce from Kelis, Nas has gone through a lot since the last time we heard from him. It probably was pretty painful for him when he was going through it. But, now that he's come out on the other side and had time to reflect on it, he's put a lot of it into his music to show that he's not all that different from everyone else. He has problems. He struggles with things. But, he works through them and eventually learns from them. As a result, life is good for him now. That's a message that everyone can relate to.
