Nas: Smoker's Wild
Andy Crysell, New Musical Express, 18 January 1997
With gangsta rap getting just a tad too "real" of late, NAS ESCOBAR comes as something of a relief. His last album, It Was Written and top-notch singles, 'If I Ruled The World' and 'Street Dreams', saw the New York rapper bring some welcome perspective to proceedings, and sell millions too. ANDY CRYSELL joined the, um, "herbally challenged" Nas in Manchester.
