God's Son is the sixth studio album by American rapper Nas, released on December 13, 2002 by Ill Will and Columbia Records. Production took place during 2001 to 2002, and was handled by several producers, including Salaam Remi, Chucky Thompson, Ron Browz, Eminem, and The Alchemist. Partly inspired by Nas' feud with Jay-Z and the death of his mother in early 2002, God's Soncovers lyrical themes such as religion, violence, and his own emotional experiences. It has been recognized by music writers as a personal work by Nas.
"Made You Look", the first single on God's Sonwas released on February 12, 2003. It was produced by Salaam Remi and samples "Apache" performed by Incredible Bongo Band. Jason Birchmeier of AllMusic claims that the first single on God's Son "announces Nas' periodic return with fury and bombast" and is a "Marley Marl-fashioned track." Jon Robinson of IGN.com claims that "Made You Look" shows Nas' "lyrical genius." Additionally, Ethan Brown of New York Magazine, says it to be "extraordinarily powerful." It was the second most successful single on God's Son reaching #32
on the Billboard Hot 100. It reached #16
in "Singles of the Year" lists from Blender magazine and Pitchfork, respectively. Q magazine also ranked it as the 903rd best song ever in 2003, and Blender followed suit, ranking it as the 185th best song from the 1980s to the 2000s in 2005. @nas
