Default Re: beastie book (spoilers)

the Nas element in TMR def feels disconnected to me. could tell from jumpstreet that it was an email affair. the bboys' versus border embarrassing at times as well, if im to be completely honest. Nas phoned his verse in too (almost literally), and im pretty sure they chopped his verse down from what he originally offered up, as the cadence is glaringly unnatural at times.

ultimately Nas feels shoe-horned into this one, whereas strictly our boys would have been more forgiving. that said, super duper psyched that they collabed with him anyhow, as it indicates a high degree of respect from both parties that they teamed up in the first place. a crossover of legends.

DPNG i thought was more fluid by comparison. didnt surprise me that Santi was more involved in the process for that joint, as indicated in the bible.....err, autobiography.



it's just 2 wheels and me, the wind in eyes...

That's how I feel about DPNG. To me it has a similar feel as GIT, where they fit their rhymes around their collaborator. She feels like she belongs on the track. She feels like a part of the track. Plus, it's a totally different type of beat/style of song for them, but it still sounds amazing.

Samesies but I also feel it was an easy road to take for the band. I honestly don't think anyone would've turned down an invitation from the band to get on a track. Especially from that 90's era, not cuz they necessarily like their music but rather they just have huge respect for the bboys.
