Nas: Nas is Like

One thing I have to say about Nas is he’s a hell of a rapper. The production on his records doesn’t always do his microphone skills justice, but this collaboration with DJ Premier definitely hits the right note. In ‘Nas is Like’ his clever life and death lyrics are perfectly complimented by an inspired strings sample and a heavy beat.

I have to admit, when I compare Nas to Dizzee Rascal or another of the current crop of pretenders, I find myself desperately pining for the good old days. Nas is like half man, half amazing. No doubt.
