N-A-S are the letters that spell … (Nas Tribute Mix)
“As far as rap go, it’s only natural I explain
my plateau and also what defines my name
First it was Nasty, but times have changed
Ask me now, I’m the artist, but hardcore, my sign’s for pain”
Nas (Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones), might very well be my overall favorite hiphop artist. I’m not a fan of everything he did, but his first 2 albums “Illmatic” and “It Was Written” are both in my Top 10 of classic hiphop albums, so that definitely means something. On top of that, throughout his long career (he released Illmatic at 20, he’s 39 now) he made a large volume of strong tracks. Sometimes, you had to look for them among the weaker material, but they were always there though.
As far as my mix goes, you know the recipe, all of my favorite tracks mixed together with interviews, interludes, movie scenes… Enjoy the collage.
