God's Son is the sixth studio album by American rapper Nas, released in 2002 on Columbia-imprint Ill Will Records. The album was recorded in 2001 and 2002 and was produced by several hip hop producers, including Salaam Remi, Chucky Thompson, Ron Browz and The Alchemist. Partly inspired by Nas' feud with Jay-Z and the death of his mother in early 2002, God's Son covers lyrical themes such as religion, violence and his own emotional experiences.

The album debuted at #18 on the Billboard 200, selling 156,000 copies in its first week, and ultimately peaked at #12. It produced three singles that achieved Billboard chart sucess. Upon its release, God's Son received acclaim from most music critics, who praised Nas' lyricism and viewed it as a progression from his previous work. The album has been certified platinum in sales.
