It’s been quite a while since i announced it but it’s finally here the Ode To Illmatic Smu Mixes.
Nas and Fashawn are trading verses on one of the best Hip Hop Albums released – Illmatic.
I mixed ALL Illmatic Joints together to make sure the quality stays. The only annoying thing about mixing this project was the Beats that Fashawn used slightly differ to the one’s Nas used on the original but i think you won’t mind when you listen to it.
1. The Genesis (Intro)
2. N.Y. and C.A. State of Minds [Smu Mix] (Original Beat)
3. Life’s A Bitch [Smu Mix] (featuring AZ & Talib Kweli) (Original Beat)
4. The World Is Yours [Smu Mix] (featuring Pete Rock) (Fash’s Beat was slightly different on this one)
5. Halftime [Smu Mix] (slightly different Beat for Fashawn)
6. Memory Lane (Sittin in the Park) [Smu Mix] (Original Beat,Fash’s Version had a scratched in vocal that said “commin outta Fresno” instead of “Queensbridge”)
7. One Love [Smu Mix] (featuring Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest) (Fash’s Beat is slightly different)
8. One Time For Your Mind [Smu Mix] (Original Beat)
9. Represent [Smu Mix] (slightly different Beat for Fashawn)
10. It Ain’t Hard To Tell [Smu Mix] (Original Beat)
