N-A-S are the letters that spell … (Nas Tribute Mix)

Nas, born Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, might very well be my overall favorite hiphop artist. I’m not a fan of everything he did, but his first two albums “Illmatic” and “It Was Written” are both in my Top 10 of classic hiphop albums, so that definitely means something. On top of that, throughout his long career (he released Illmatic at the age of 20, he’s 39 now …) he made a large volume of strong tracks. Sometimes, you had to look for them among the weaker material, but they were always there though.

As far as my mix goes, you know the recipe, all of my favorite tracks mixed together with interview quotes, interludes, movie scenes etc … Enjoy the collage.
