Nas - Hope

March 15th, 2009

When “Hip-hop Is Dead” by Nas dropped (2006), people were wondering why the last song is an acapella. The song had originally a beat by Wyldfyer, but it didn’t make the album because of difficulties in clearing the sample.

Hi-Tek & Co. Express Feelings

“Music is… my total existence, straight up. Everything in my life evolves around music.” -J Dilla

Dilla (R.I.P.) certainly was dedicated; he was touring Europe only a few months before passing away.

“Crates of records, great sessions had the whole hood jammin,
large speakers, fresh made, smell the wood sandin” -Nas

Nas reminisces over the times of Kool Herc & his block parties with custom made speakers. It’s said that Herc’s first sound system consisted of 2 turntables and a guitar amp.
