Nas- N.Y. State of Mind

Artist: Nas
Title: N.Y. State of Mind
Album: Illmatic
Record Label: Columbia Records
Catalog Number: 4759591
Year Released: 1994

Nas is one of my favorite artists and although his infamous feud with Jay Z doesn’t fall in the realm of hip hop style clashes, it was true that Nas had issues with Tupac. This is a classic song for New York and the hip hop artists from the area. Nas reveals his ghetto life and the dangers that came with the environment where he grew. The song combines pounding beats with unique piano loops combined with the smooth flow catches the listener’s ears.
