Nas Featuring Jadakiss – Hold Down The Block [Smu Mix]

This Joint originally appeared on Nas’ Hip Hop Is Dead LP back in 2006.

The Mark Batson produced Track was one of the more quiet ones on the album but still dope regardless.

This Year Jadakiss decided to Remix the Joint so i thought i place him on this joint together with the great Nas to make it a all New York Remix.

Shoutout to Nas and Jada!

T.I. Featuring Nas & Eminem – Topless [Smu Reference Mix]

This is a Reference Verse mix i just made. T.I.’s verse leaked earlier this year and yesterday Eminem’s more radio friendly Reference with the same Nas verse as on T.I’s

T.I. on the first verse,then Nas and then Em closes the joint with his verse.

Nas – Snitch Alibi (Produced by Boola)

It’s been a minute since we heard Nas on a record. Although i gotta say it was his year with “Distant Relatives” (I still spin it.).

I’m probably among those people who still hope that “Lost Tapes 2” will drop this year,that would be a great Christmas present.

However here’s a Freetrack that the producer Boola let loose on twitter a couple of days ago.

The Game featuring Nas & Marsha Ambrosius – Why You Hate The Game (2010 Aston Morton Mashup)

Exclusive Ishhhhhh! My dude Reii is back with a brand new mash-up.It’s been a long time since he last dropped a track but i’ll let him explain the whole situation why he decided to come back:

(Reii)

“So I’m back… well, kinda. When I started mixing, I chose to mix the material I liked; my first mixtape, “Jaylib In Wonderland” was some real hip-hop music, and I’ve gotta stick by what I thought on the first playback; that’s one of the realest fan-made mixtapes out there! (Shoutouts to SMU for postin’ it back then, too) That was back in ’09, and since then I gained around 2m YouTube views, more and more Subscribers and fans… by going commercial. I thought I’d broaden my work just to prove to myself and others I can hack all fields of music… whether it be real hip-hop, or some Lil’ Wayne shit!Well, since then, I lost love from all those ‘true’ hip-hop heads who thought I sold out, and we as DJ’s/hosters/whatever you wanna call us, sure as hell don’t get no love from the internet! So, I gave up on the whole music shit for a minute… (and I gotta say, I thought other ‘YouTube’ DJ’s etc would be holding it down… obviously not.)But, considering I did all that in only a year, with the help of a few friends on the way, I thought to myself “forget this shit.” So, from now on, I’mma just mix what I want, how I want, when I want. And, obviously share that with whoever wants to listen… So, without draggin’ this shit out too much, here is a track I mixed, cos I wanted to mix it, and I liked it… hope ya’ll like it too!”

And remember what i said: I only post Shit that i like,if you don’t like it it’s just a matter of taste. But i’ll tell you this mash-up is dope! If you like what you hearing reii has also opened up a new channel on youtube so you can be up to date with his shit.

DJ Premier – Sing Like Bilal [Instrumental]

If you’re a true Hip Hop head (like me) you probably are keen on DJ Premier’s Beat Catalogue and the joints he did with Nas,Fat Joe and other honorable names.

About 2 Years ago he decided to release an Beat Tape called “Beats that Collected Dust” with instrumentals that he was doing for other artists but then got turned down by the MC’s who were supposed to get the beat.

Here’s one of the Beats that started to become popular this year when Joell Ortiz decided to rap over it on Funk Flex’ Radio Show (What Up Flex!) It samples Gang Starr’s Song “We Got Gunz” with a vocal sample by M.O.P’s Lil Fame.

Real Talk: Nas’ Email to the Def Jam executives

Last month (on his birthday to be exact) Nas announced that “Lost Tapes 2” will come out some time really soon. But now the people at LefsetzLetter got “hands” on an E-Mail from Nas writing to the Def Jam Executives. I don’t want to waste your time so here is the E-Mail

———————–

From: Nas
To: LA Reid, Steve Bartels, Steve Gawley, Michael Seltzer, Joseph Borrino, Chris Hicks
Subject: PUT MY SHIT OUT!

Peace to all,

With all do respect to you all, Nas is NOBODY’s slave. This is not the 1800′s, respect me and I will respect you.

I won’t even tap dance around in an email, I will get right into it. People connect to the Artist @ the end of the day, they don’t connect with the executives. Honestly, nobody even cares what label puts out a great record, they care about who recorded it. Yet time and time again its the executives who always stand in the way of a creative artist’s dream and aspirations. You don’t help draw the truth from my deepest and most inner soul, you don’t even do a great job @ selling it. The #1 problem with DEF JAM is pretty simple and obvious, the executives think they are the stars. You aren’t…. not even close. As a matter of fact, you wish you were, but it didn’t work out so you took a desk job. To the consumer, I COME FIRST. Stop trying to deprive them! I have a fan base that dies for my music and a RAP label that doesn’t understand RAP. Pretty fucked up situation

This isn’t the 90′s though. Beefing with record labels is so 15 years ago. @ this point I just need you all to be very clear where I stand and how I feel about “my label.” I could go on twitter or hot 97 tomorrow and get 100,000 protesters @ your building but I choose to walk my own path my own way because since day one I have been my own man. I did business with Tommy Mottola and Donnie Einer, two of the most psycho dudes this business ever created. I worked well with them for one major reason……. they believed in me. The didn’t give a fuck about what any radio station or magazine said….those dudes had me.

Lost Tapes is a movement and a very important set up piece for my career as it stands. I started this over 5 years ago @ Columbia and nobody knew what it was or what it did but the label put it out as an LP and the fans went crazy for it and I single handlely built a new brand of rap albums. It’s smart and after 5 years it’s still a head of the game. This feels great and you not feeling what I’m feeling is disturbing. Don’t get in the way of my creativity. We are aligned with the stars here, this is a movement. There is a thing called KARMA that comes to haunt you when you tamper with the aligning stars. WE ARE GIVING THE PEOPLE EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT. Stop throwing dog shit on a MAGICAL moment.

You don’t get another Nas recording that doesn’t count against my deal….PERIOD! Keep your bullshit $200,000.00 fund. Open the REAL budget. This is a New York pioneers ALBUM, there ain’t many of us. I am ready to drop in the 4th quarter. You don’t even have shit coming out! Stop being your own worst enemy. Let’s get money!

-N.Jones

Harsh words from one of my favourite MC’s of all time. I wonder if the execs at Def Jam are pleased about this E-Mail. But you gotta admit that Nas has balls to speak up for himself and against another album he doesn’t want to do and feels uncomfortable with.

Keep Your Head up Nas! I feel you on that totally. You wanna give the Fans the music you want them to hear. I wish more artists would do that nowadays….

Vado & Fashawn – Memory Lane 2010 [Smu Mix]

Here it is the 2010 Version of Memory Lane,Vado and Fashawn dropped both their dedications of the track a while back.

You probably heard Fashawn’s Verse on my Ode to Illmatic Smu Mix tape but since the CDQ  of Vado’s version dropped i thought i make it a 2010 Version to show off 2 dope Emcee’s of this era.

Shouts to Vado & Fashawn!

Nas & Fashawn – Ode To Illmatic [The Smu Mixes]

Note: (this is not the cover for the tape)

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.

8. One Time For Your Mind [Smu Mix] (Original Beat)
