oh.. my god.. did someone just suggest Nas should get Just Blaze to produce all his songs?

I dont think I have liked any of Justs beats since... Breathe. they aren't bad I just hate them, they're annoying. Nas is lyrical, he doesn't want beats to take away from the emcee, beats are just something to rap that compliment the track to him, not a main attraction. and Justs style doesn't fit Nas at all.

ok.

I just really dont like Just Blaze beats, so I'm biased I guess. 90% of Nas' beats are all the same beat and thats just the way I like it.

although I hear for his newest album is going to have a lot more variety.

I agree. I enjoy the soft, slow beats Nas does that you can almost fall asleep to. Just really simple and quiet, and like you said, they don't take away from him lyrically.

I've remixed a lot of Nas' songs in the past and i'm about to release a remix of his Stillmatic cd but I need some Nas fans to tell me how bad I butchered his songs. If anybody is interested, please pm me.

Here's two Nas remixes I made a few years ago.
Nas - Got Yourself A Gun (RJD2 sample)
Nas -If I ruled the world (Air sample)

My favorite Nas tracks
Life's a *****
Street Dreams remix
Memory Lane
Phone Tap (Firm song)
Fast life

I dont follow rap much these days, but Nas is a ****ing God. He's far and away my favorite hip hop artist.

1. One Mic (thats one of my favs period!)
2. Life's a *****
3. The World is Yours
4. Poppa was a Player
5. Street Dreams

I could go on, but it would just be me listing every song he has ever done.

im surprised no one has mention "Gangsta Tears"

check out these lyrics

Quote:
Nas - Gangsta Tears

[Chorus 2X: Nas]
(I'm cryin gangsta tears) Only if you could feel my pain
(I'm cryin gangsta tears) Only if I could show you
(I'm cryin gangsta tears) Only if you was in this game
(I'm cryin gangsta tears) You'd feel the whirlwind blow you

(1st verse)

My daily dose is ferocious
I smoke dope, just as strong as opium
Hopin I'm close to just breakin frustration;
speakin on podiums
Facin this cold world head-on, dead on arrivals
Young black, poor education guns crack
The gang violence done that
Nighttime, the guns blow, streets got snitches
dealers, *****es, killers and blunt smoke, clubs open
Benzes, Jeeps, dubs pokin out tires
Thugs with heat, pay security, to let them slide in
Huh, I'm at the corner driftin, sippin, Cognac
To' back, know dat soldiers is packin no secret
Though I'm broken hearted women done left me hopeless in darkness
Smokin, driftin in sickness, stand by oceans watch the sun glisten
I'm soul-searchin, I'm soul-hurtin
What happens when money don't make you happy
I wish this on no person
Ate at the classy places, made all my fashion statements
I got no friends I'm lonely, don't want no pity save it

(2nd verse)

Yo, ride in the nighttime, I'm high, got on my flight suit
Hood with the night sign, dark colors on
Pull up the block my brother's on
I hug him and we blow trees (sup *****?) Scopin for police
Guns on our hip, fiends want a fix, stumblin tricks (right here)
We left the drug game alone
Brothers is jealous cause we still call the hood our home
What could you tell us?
At funerals my eyes swell up (damn)
Look at my dog lay in the casket
Twin shotgun barrels had blasted
And rest in peace for him, is all I could whisper
as I paid respect, kissed his face and felt hard skin
It's part of God's plan, but why so many ****** have to die?
It's crowded in this place, let the priest and pastor by
Bandana covers my eye, I'm scopin through the room
I see killers and thieves, mob bosses and goons
And yet I feel responsible when my *****'s pronounced dead
inside the hospital, I wish there's somethin I could do, but..

spittin real $hit
