About Artist: De La Soul is a legendary hip hop trio who blew up in the late 80s. They cemented their place in the the hip hop hall of fame decades ago but now 10 years after their last album they’re back. Nas is was arguably the king of New York before Jay-Z took over. Nas is still a top tier hip hop legend though.
About Song: This song is a little teaser off of an upcoming album that De La Soul is doing through Kickstarter
Favorite Part: Love the horns on the track and the fact that hip hop icons like De La Soul have some super fresh music out.
DOWNLOAD MP3 SwizzBeatz-TopDownftNas.mp3 Summary: New York’s Finest (Nas) + Horns About Artist: Nas is one of the great NY rappers. He used to be in a contest with Jay-Z for best NY rapper but it’s hard to say that Nas didn’t lose that one. That being said Nas is still one of the most respected 2nd or 3rd generation rappers. Swizz Beatz came up with DMX and Cassidy but has managed out live the both of them as he is one of today’s premier producers producing dozens of hit singles. Swizz Beatz also has been in the public eye more lately as he recently married, and is having a child, with Alicia Keyes. About Song: This hip hop song is part of Swizz Beatz weekly release of songs called Monster Mondays (a ripoff of GOOD Fridays, me thinks so). This song originally didn’t have Nas and was featured in Grand Theft Auto, Nas really brings this well produced track to a song worth listening to. Favorite Part:
The Horns…of course.
And Nas brings that gritty New York feel to it. Other: Swizz Beatz Wikipedia Nas Wikipedia
