2. Steer clear of inviting too many guests to appear on the album.
Another thing that we really enjoyed about Life Is Good was that it didn't have too many guests on it. Sure, there were a bunch of R&B singers like Anthony Hamilton, Mary J. Blige, and Miguel on the album. But as far as rappers were concerned, Nas didn't clutter up the album with a bunch of random guest verses. And that was great because what we want to hear on a Nas album is as much Nas as possible.
