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.

Tracklist

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”)

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

9. Represent [Smu Mix] (slightly different Beat for Fashawn)

Nas,AZ,Talib Kweli,Fashawn & Olu Dara – Life’s A Bitch [Smu Mix]

I was listenin to Nas’ Timeless “illmatic” album earlier today and when i saw that Fashawn was going to redo it  i was a bit sceptic at first but when i heard his Version “Life’s A Bitch” with none other than Talib Kweli himself  i had to check it out. All i can say is it was mad dope and Kweli and Fash both get their props for redoing Nas and AZ’s classic collabo.

I mixed both versions together and I hope you’ll like it:
