It came to the hip-hop world's attention that Nas made a surprise appearance at a Run The Jewels event to celebrate with Mass Appeal the release of Run The Jewels 2. What's even crazier than his presence and support for Killer Mike and El-P was when he asked the audience to premiere a new track. He then proceeded to spit bars over J Dilla's "Gobstopper" off of Donuts.
We thought it would be cool to craft a little mix of Nas tracks by thinking, "What would these sound like if Dilla produced them?" Well now we have an idea. Mixed by Ryan Stone, you can stream and download (and share) Nas & J Dilla: Cut From The Same Cloth for FREE.
