Question 4: What in the world were you thinking when you released Nastradamus?
As you know, your career hasn't been all good. And we're sure you're very aware of the fact that most hip-hop fans don't consider Nastradamus to be your best work. In fact, as far as rap albums go, it's one of the most disappointing albums of all-time. So, just like we want you to look back and tell us why Illmatic was so great, we also want you to look back and tell us why Nastradamus turned out so bad. At the time, did you think it'd be as big of a dud as it turned out to be? Is there anything you'd do differently if you could have the chance to go back and re-record that album? Do you have it on your iPod? (and, if so, WHY?!?) It'd be interesting to hear your take on why the album was panned by fans and critics alike, and it'd give you the opportunity to explain to everyone why you put out such a below-average album.
