Summary: If I had everything…
About Artist: What is there to say about NaS, theking of New York. Obviously one of our aging hip hop royals. Time hasn’t been great to NaS but I like this song.
About Song: This track is off of “NASIR” which was one of the super short albums that Kanye West produced in the summer of 2018. The album wasn’t great but this song stuck with me.
Favorite Part: “If I had everything, I could change anything”
“Some people have everything they probably ever wanted in life. And never have enough” (2:56)

The Dream – Higher (ft. Pusha-T, Mase, Cocaine 80s)(prod by. Hit-Boy)

Summary: You know I’m a big Kanye fan so there had to be something from G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer up here. This track is all about the production especially the outro.
About Artist:  There are a bunch of artists involved in this track so I won’t go into all their bios (you can Google them your damn self) but they are all a part of Kanye West’s music crew GOOD Music which is the collective that put out the album that this track is on Cruel Summer.
About Song: This song features the Dream on the hook, Pusha-T on the first verse, Ma$e on the second verse, and Cocaine 80s with the outro.
Favorite Part:   Like I said I put this song up here not because of the rapping but because of the production specifically the outro.

While the beat on the track is great throughout skip ahead to 3:43 where the outro starts to hear the part that I love so much. You really should listen to the outro on headphones to get the ful effect of all the meticulous production work that went into it.
