NAS PREVIEWS J DILLA PRODUCED SONG “THE SEASON”

Yes, you read that right. Nas has a song produced by J Dilla that he previewed at a private event for the Killer Mike and El-P Run The Jewels 2 project. The beat may sound familiar as it is “Gobstoppers” off of Dilla’s Donuts. But despite the familiarity of the instrumental, the blessing that Nas gave it will leave your head spinning. No word when or where the full song will drop.

A DJ PREMIER PORTRAIT BY FANTASY ILLUSTRATOR DAN LISH

By day, Dan Lish is a senior concept artist for the video game industry in London. But in his spare time, Lish concocts some amazing illustrations for his personal use. He recently brought together the worlds of hip hop and the fantasy of graphic novels together for some incredible illustrations.

Complex caught up with Lish to discuss his many portraits ranging from Pete Rock to J Dilla. Here’s what he had to say about the Premier image.

“DJ Premier has a great face to draw. It’s full of character. He’s a self-confessed nerd, tinkering away in his studio of sound. Featured here are speaker imps, Brooklyn blocks, keyboards, and oddball characters.”
