Jay-Z ft. Nas - “Success” - American Gangster. Jermaine Dupri and No I.D. rip the Larry Ellis & The Black Hammer sample.
Heath Brothers - “Smilin’ Billy Suite Pt. 2” - Marchin’ On!. The more famous version behind Nas’ “One Love” produced by Q-Tip.
The Firm ft. Nas, AZ, Nature & Dr. Dre - “Phone Tap”
Santana ft. Nas - “Back In Black” - Guitar Heaven The Greatest Guitar Classics Of All Time. So this really happened. And I like it, especially the gentle nod by Nas to BDP’s “Dope Beat”. You can thank Clive Davis for this gem.
New Music! Beastie Boys (feat. Nas) - “Too Many Rappers”
Had to add this to my stream. As radio rap music gets cleaner, real hiphop goes for the dirt and dust. A solid first single.
Nas - “Black President”. This song will be played in a lot of clubs tonight. Rewind selectah!
Nas and Kool G Rap murk the beat on “Fast Life” from back in late 90s. This Dynamic Duo that should have made more joints togethers. Who would have thought that Surface’s “Happy” could be flipped into a thug anthem?
