Nas & Damian Marley - Patience

May 21st, 2010

Finally back, up & running!

Since Blogger forced to move all FTP-hosted blogs elsewhere (now rocking with Wordpress), apologizes for the couple of weeks of silence and thanks for the patience. Sometimes silence is golden.

Nas - Just A Moment

February 6th, 2010

Hadn’t listened to this one for a while. So dope.

PS. The original “Will You Cry” by Chic is worth listening, too.

Nas - Let There Be Light & Kanye West

November 4th, 2009

A Detroit icon HouseShoes wondered how Kanye West could’ve produced “Selfish” by Slum Village. His thoughts made me think: listening to songs like “Heartless” feels absurd after hearing his earlier beats with Scarface, Beanie, Jay, Talib Kweli, Common etc.

Anyway, one “newer” Kanye track I’ve been liking a lot is “Let There Be Light” by Nas. Thanks to the vocals, it might even be a b-side for the soundtrack of my life. Lets keep the positivity highlighted.

Large Professor feat. Nas - One Plus One

August 16th, 2009

Large Professor, known from the legendary Main Source, has finally managed to release “The LP” album. “The LP” was originally supposed to be released in 1996, but the label, Geffen, dropped the project back then.

In 1993, Large Pro finished his A Tribe Called Quest (Keep It Rollin’) verse with the famous phrase: “Queens represent, buy the album when I drop it”. However, his debut album didn’t see the daylight until 2002.

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

March 7th, 2009

“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.

Slow Jam: Game - Letter to the King

November 10th, 2008

Even though Game isn’t the usual choice for slow jams, this one has some serious vibes. The last song of the “LAX” album, released in the Fall, is a tribute to Martin Luther King. Game goes almost profound - that’s some new…

The soulful beat full of feeling is provided by Hi-Tek.
