DJ Rhude pulls together a batch of rare and unreleased Nas songs for “The Found Tapes Vol. 1.” What you’ll find on this mix will certainly hold you down until Nas’ next project. From “Don’t Stop” featuring Tha Dogg Pound to the original version of “Fetus,” this is a real treat for Nas fans.
Nas and AZ’s chemistry in the booth is undeniable as evidenced by their body of work over the years. Despite said chemistry, the two arists have never collaborated on a full length album despite the fans pleas for it. While it probably may never happen, Datwon (Vibe EIC) and I brainstormed about putting together a mixtape as a way of imagining how an album between the two could sound. As a result Naz: the Flyest Essence was born. Featuring beats from The Alchemist, Pete Rock, Large Pro, Sid Roams, Midi Mafia, Salaam Remi and many more.
