THE WHOLE WORLD...would love to see Kweli, Andre3000, BlackThought & PharoaheMonch do an album together... Em could do the intro & outro with Nas, JayElect, Common & JayZ narrating it. Plus, Cee-Lo, Yasiin, Drake & Lauryn could take turns murdering the hooks...& oh yeah, Mr. West could handle the production. That would be monumental for music!!! Yessir!!... An instant [Hip-Hop] classic!
YA DIG--SHO NUFF!
love how his worst verse in a long time still sounds much better than 99 pct of rappers today including jay z
Thats funny. Even Jayz is your favorite rappers favorite!
Wiz Khalifa is straight Wack No Doubt Nas should stop making songs with these cats seriously(Rick Ross a fuck boy always)...
them niggas should have just dropped 8 bars and let nas handle the rest. it's a average verse for nas standards, but very quality for this era.
For fuck sake, will everyone stop recording with Officer Ricky???
I know everyone embellishes their rhymes a bit, but a CO talking about being a drug kingpin is too far. It's not like the walking sack of cholesterol is even popping anymore.
FUCK OFF OFFICER RICKY!!
Why is everyone a critic on street credibility. like people are really mad hes not a murderer and drug king pin...heres a hint, most them arent.
I hope Nas charged these wack niggas 200k
Because this is a stain on the champ.
This nigga wiz did his thing with the rollout! The first and remix were . Nas "been outside...still outside"...damn, he went it.
It is a different feeling from the original, but I like it. It's more relaxing, smoking, cruising track. Of course nas killed it, but they all went it. Wiz went it! Just listen...the vibe is cool; smoke while listening...
top ten best albums ever: in no order
1.illmatic - nas
2. ready to die - notorious big
3. Eminem - marshal mathers lp
4. jayz - reasonable doubt
5. rick ross - Teflon don
6. nas - it was written
7. tupac - all eyez on me
8. dmx - its dark and hell is hot
9. Kanye west - late registration
10. notorious big - life after death
lost boyz - legal drug money, prodigy - hnic, bone thugs eternal 1999, nas stillmatic, 50 cent get rich or die tryin would be in my top too just cant fit
I would say it's Illmatic, Enter the Wu Tang, Liquid Swords, Paid in Full, It Takes a Nation of Millions, ATLiens, Cypress Hill (their debut album), OB4CL, AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted (since Ice Cube was always on point back then), and The Low End Theory. To say Rick Ross has dropped a legit classic is crazy. Sure, some of his stuff is alright, but come on.
Better than that trick trick song
Didn't like it at all. Rick Ross was the worse! His verse should went on the editing room flooor.
song is totally mediocre. n Nas did NOT go in on this, lol.
its not aggressive, but he still killed it. listen to what he says: how do i explain esco?
am i the only one rewinding Nas verse?
no your not the only bro
yeah I think ppl just see names and judge on that, he killed that shit
Nas saves it
all the energy from the original is lost. This remix is garbage.
Nas verse was straight. It was pretty weak. Matter fact this song is weak. Nas could of came harder on this track.
Didnt realize the original had energy or anything relevant for that matter. Wtf is going on in hip hop nas on this wow
tight, esp nas
Nas really shined hear... I could careless about the other verses here
Nas really shined here. I could care less about the other verses on this song.
fuck nas this commercial nigga doing a song with wack khalifa
Nas has even called himself "the most mainstream underground artist". He knows what he's doing.
Um, he did a song with Puff Daddy, Ginuwine, J-Lo too
this is trash
not even the GOAT could've saved this garbage
Nas needs to learn to say no. When he talks bout the game being fucked up who else other than niggas like Wiz could he possibly be talkin bout?
nah, son, you need to learn about exposure, tribute, and shinin on niggas. think about that.
Lil wayne, cheif keef
Sick collab !
I fux wit it...Take Q an rick ross out though
Ehhhh subpar at best....
Nas verse was decent...
Schoolboy Q was ehhh
Rick Ross....bleh garbage...
I didn't even listen to Wiz verse tbh....song was just boring really....
I'm baked af right now haha 10/10
Q, rozay, nas
the next big thing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxQvCKcJIx0
I'm ok with this being the only time i ever hear this song. No replay.
Nothing will beat Life is Good. Not even illmatic. Illmatic is the instant classic and arguable #1 best rap album ever. But Life is Good is a art come to life, it's what the man who made Illamtic in his twenties became in his late thirties.
Both of yall gota be trolling. Illmatic is a classic but it was written is nas best album, and ive been sayin that since 96 not cuz shoolboy said it in an interview recently
fuck outta here. Mobb Deep's The Infamous shits all over Illmatic.
I enjoy the original version and Nas shows he's the reason why he's the GOAT.
Stop responding to trolls people.
Yo man I have to
Wiz, why you feature boring ass Nas on your song. Dude can't even write a decent rhyme anymore. I'll rather listen to Droog just to catch Illmatic flashbacks. Nas has lost all his lyrical energy. I'm not impressed.
Nas sucks Dick
Why you always getting him confused with yourself?
it irks the fuck outta me that rick ross is on here. this song would've been fire without him. But big ups to wiz for the remix. Definitely diggin it.
Verses from best to worse IMO
1. Nas - This should go without saying. He killed this shit, straight up. He briefly made this mediocre song sound amazing.
2. SchoolBoyQ - It wasn't garbage, but it wasn't anything spectacular either. It was aight, nothing like his verses on his A$AP collabs. Still, it saved my ears after listening to the nigga before him.
3. Wiz Khalifa - this is surprising due to how ass the hook is, but his verse wasn't that bad. It sound he tried to go back to his his Kush and OJ days a lil bit. I expected way worse, but it was ok.
4. Wiz Khalifa's shitty autotune hook
5. Officer Ricky - Like every song he's featured on, he spits some forgetabble ass filler verse and says a whole bunch of nothing like a BAWSE
3/5, cause Nas somewhat saved it
^^No need to feed the trolls. The real hip-hop heads know what's up.
As I said it should go without saying but anyway... He got the best verse because even though he's pretty much rapping about the same thing as the rest, it consists of elements that the others don't have; sharp wordplay and storytelling. Not as much as his usual song, but above the other three at least. Listen to how he starts out.
"I never give a rat a pass it's the fattest ass that attracts me. How do I define nasty? Ghastly. Explain Esco. Plain and simple; with a red bone in a benzo sipping XO. From the Don to God's son, the project prophet, the live one."
It's deep if you've listened to Nas from the beginning. He went from Nasty Nas to Esco to Escobar now he's Nastradaus. Then he put out God's son after that. The rest of the verse he's recapping his 20 year career. Its subtle pieces of dopeness like this that makes him the best rapper ever.
how was has verse the best explain?
I dont listen to anything with William Roberts on it on GP but did he say anything about Wing Stop or Trick Daddy running him out of Detroit? Or Chris Rock detroying him live in front of all his famous friends and hot bitches at the BET Awards?
what the fuck was that lazy flow, Nas? Wiz had the best verse?
Niggas can't even tell when people are putting up stuff to troll em'...lol
bunch of fake niggas making songz wit da police.
sorry Wiz but Jeezy up next, you can't compete.
Nas killed this. Q was tight too.
The only thing tight about q are his pants, same wit take a wiz khalifa
Whos wiz khalifa. Sounds like a african girls name, was she in that coming to america movie with eddie murphy?
Only listened for Nas and his verse was decent. rest were trash.
Nas kills it.
Okay I like this one. The original and Diddy's remix can die a slow death.
sometimes i wish nas would have died with big and pac cause all hes doing is shitting on his legacy with weak shit like dis.
"You act like Pac and Biggie wouldn't have been doing shit like this 20 years later. Trust me, if they didn't die you'd be calling them niggas sellouts too. "
Thats why im saying I wish Nas died with them...
You act like Pac and Biggie wouldn't have been doing shit like this 20 years later. Trust me, if they didn't die you'd be calling them niggas sellouts too. Anyway Nas made this shit sound good, eat a dick.
Most ignorant shit that I have read in a long time. You need help.
Wiz called in the big boys for this one. Solid 4/5
Nas killed it.
I wish more remixes switched up the feel of the actual song, make adjustments to the beat, flow, everything, make it a different song.
This actually rides. The orginal version and the other remix are trash but i fucks with this and i dont even like ross or q. Nas kills it!
