Raekwon and Nas: Rich & Black – Video:

leave a comment »

Fresh off the LRG train, Raekwon and Nas team up for the video to “Rich and Black,” which 1. looks like it was a lot of fun to shoot and 2. proves that Nas is really sounding hungry right now. The newest single from the criminally slept on Shaolin vs. Wu Tang project, it gives you just a taste of how amazing this album really is.
Now I need to know why this isnt playing on MTVJams. Hrrrrm.

Enjoy, dammit.

Theres waaaay too much new Yummy Common Music dropping to be Ignored (click here).
Direct Swipe from Potholes:

We finally have the full version Common’s “Ghetto Dreams” featuring Nas. This is the first official leak off Common’s upcoming album The Dreamer, The Believer. The track is produced by Chicago’s own No I.D. When fakeshoredrive.com premiered the snippet back in late May it definitely had all of us excited for Common’s upcoming album. After dropping “Summer Madness” and now “Ghetto Dreams” Common is definitely back and I don’t mean the guy who released that Universal Mind Control album. Oddly enough it was Nas who leaked the new track. No complaints from me.You can stream “Ghetto Dreams” below and download it after the jump.

That Nas leak from the new "Life Is Good" Album… it definitely does NOT suck.

leave a comment »

Again… short sweet and to the point. When I got done running errands, doing some work on the internets and cooking dinner, It looks like Nas (or someone) leaked a brand new track (possibly the lead single, wouldn’t be mad) to the internets for us to review. And I have to tell you… this does NOT suck in the least. Not at all. As in, I’m geeked to see what else this dude comes out with. Nas is back to “Nasty.”

With a HEAVY 80s influence, dope break beats, and everything that ever made me happy as a kid growing up in hip hop, Nasty Nas is basically letting you know hes back. And its GREAT times.

Since Haiku player is acting a bit funny right now… just go ahead and listen/download the link by clicking here. And spread the word. This is nice.
*Update: Or just use the player I got going for you right here.

Elzhi's "Elmatic" is Fairly Awesome.

leave a comment »

Here. Shut Up Kianga. :)

You should already know, but if I don’t tell you this or post it up, Kianga will disown me. Like I told you she would here. Basically, built around Nas’ certified Hip Hop classic “Illmatic,” Elzhi sonically demonstrates why he is the best thing to come out of whats LEFT of Slum Village.

Click here to get it from XXL and whatnot.

Enjoy.

If you didn't know already, Beastie Boys + Nas = Flawlessness. Too Many Rappers [New Reactionaries Version]:

with 3 comments

I mean, if you didn’t know, I just want to highlight this. Hopefully theres some kinda video treatment in the works for this already. Please. Please Music Video Jebus.
Too Many Rappers [New Reactionaries Version]. Beastie Boys Featuring Nas. From the somewhat epic and worth the wait Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. My favorite song on the album thus far, possibly for the long run. I love everything about it. The 80s style only they can do, the (somewhat minimalist) beats, the crazy sounds used to make music, the weird synthesized sound fading in out the song like a siren or light of warning. Its so ill. I love Hip Hop like this. You guys can party to Make Some Noise if you want to, I’m over here with this song.

Witness the Haiku Power and Press Play. Or click the link. From your cellphones or iPads. You can play it.

..and then check the completely different version of it sitting on YouTube I just found.

Enjoy this in all of its awesome, please.
