"Every few years Nas remembers he's the GOAT. " As our brother -in-arms, Gopi , wrote, this broad and highly controversial statement (to some) rings true as we see the king of Queensbridge finally emerge from the proverbial shell that he retreats to every so often. "Nasty" finds the emcee back to his roots, both figuratively and physically, as both the classic beat of the track and heavy hood representation in the music video mark a revisiting to his timeless New York style. It's joints like this (and, well, his almost flawless 902s back catalog) that demonstrate [...]
Funk-master Flex once again premiers another banger, this one was a Nas and Rick Ross collaboration. The track is for the soundtrack to Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy’s “Tower Heist”. The radio rip was out first but I waited for the CDQ to let it loose, legendary producer Salaam Remi is on the boards for this one. Check It Out And Enjoy. Follow me @ Ebonicss Download: Nas Ft. Rick Ross -It’s Tower Heist

Here's Nas' new video for, Nasty - enjoy:
It took a while, but after some listening, Common's Ghetto Dreams single finally grew on me, and has managed to stay at the top of my "recently played" tracks on my iTunes. I guess the reason why I was on the border about this track is because I did not at all expect this roughened up Common look whatsoever. I was surprised to see him jump from his clean-cut R&B look, and releasing the smoothest tracks to this dirty heavy beat with a video of him and Nas looking like he got banned from his local barbershop and [...]
Here's a little something to usher in your first official weekend of the fall season. DJ Rhude did the dirty work for all of his and compiled a handful of unreleased tracks by Queensbridge legend Nas and packaged them into a tidy, CD-quality mixtape. Definitely one for the longstanding fans and b-side hoarders. Download the mixtape here (Datpiff).
It's been a while since I cover a popular track for Sample Sundays... today I decided to uncover some of the samples that were used to produce Jay-Z's Dead Presidents single which he released to promote his debut album Reasonable Debt . There is a huge misconception regarding this single. A lot of people think that Dead Presidents was not a single and is actually just another track in his Reasonable Debt album. If you know the slightest bit about hip hop then you probably know that the track that appears on [...]
I've been listening to a bunch of Mac Miller lately and I couldn't help but notice how well produced the instrmentals are, most of them with really interesting samples. I was left with no choice but to choose one of his tracks for this Sample Sunday. The track that I chose is of course one of my from his 2010 mixtape K.I.D.S entitled Nikes on My Feet including samples from Nas, My Morning Jacket, and Dexter Wansel. Mac Miller - Nikes On My Feet [...]
Life’s A Bitch - Fashawn feat Talib Kweli - Doing their version of arguably the greatest hip hop song of all time from Nas and AZ, Fashawn and Talib come correct. Pretty Lights vs Led Zeppelin - This is Pretty Lights’ take on Led Zeppelin. He takes pieces of 7 Zep songs and makes them into his own crazy song. It’s dope. Influence - Jurassic 5 - Loveandpeace remix - Sturmrekorder - I caught this at Soundcloud. Pretty cool [...]
Reebok and Rock the Bells have just begun a video series called Reebok Classics , featuring interviews with RTB artists discussing their most classic albums. Here Nas talks about working with DJ Premier aka Primo and Q-Tip on what many regard as hip hop's greatest (and Nas' debut) album ever, Illmatic . Isn't it nice to not talk about Watch the Throne for a minute?
Gang Starr Tha Squeeze (Monto Remix) Daaaaaaaaannnnggg. Gang Starr is bringin’ the slurripain as always, with a fresh twist on their classic “Tha Squeeze” via proflic producer Monto . If you have ever read my blaag, you know I love nothing more than some 90’s rap. Biggie , Souls of Mischief , Jedi Mind Tricks , Gangstarr . That shit is my jam. So i’m sure you can imagine how excited and utterly delighted I was when the homie over at [...]

Have you heard of Animal Farm? And no, I'm not talking about the controversial (one-time banned) George Orwell novel. I'm talking about the Hip Hop group out of Portland, Oregon. If not then fret not. We have got a bit of a treat for you, as the five of them have kindly taken the time to do our little musical interview. But before you get to their choices, listen to their track 'Test Of Time' which features Talib Kweli who is easily one of my favourites. This song came to my attention thanks to the daily [...]

Queensbridge and Staten Island connect on this one. As far as the title of the song, well if the shoe fits.
While I really do enjoy what's been coming out in the hip hop and rap game lately, nothing hits the spot quite like what was dropping in the 902s. Nas and Common take us back to the golden days and show us what real hip hop is about in this latest track, which is from [...]
Back Like That Back on American soil just in time for the 4th so the posts will start picking back up again. The Calvin Harris track has got to be a staple for your summer social gatherings.
