Nas and JJFP?


Recommended Posts

Okay so I'm listening to Nas's "Illmatic" and I'm jamming out to this song "halftime" on there. Then it hit me, it sounds so similar to JJFP's "Scream". Does anyone else notice this? "Scream" came out on "Code Red" in late '93 and "Halftime" came out on "Illmatic" in '94 but Wikipedia says the single "Halftime" for Nas came out in '93.

hmm...

"Illmatic" and "Code Red" are the 2 best produced albums in hip-hop history :yeah:

I don't know if I would consider them the best produced of all-time, but there is no denying the production is great on both of them.

I have Nas's Illmatic...but i've never listened 2 it that much. I don't remember any trax that reminded me of "Scream." I do wish Nas's more current stuff waz on the level of Illmatic tho.'

I could fall asleep listening to Illmatic. Well actauly that happens to me with most of Nas`s stuff... But Illmatic does his job best. I dont see waht should be a classic about this. Mobb Deep`s Infamous and Wutang`s 36 Czhambers are far better Albums and they came out about the same time.

Yes, thats true. Nas is a poet with and excelent flow. But motsly I cant stand his Beats. They are just too.. boring for me... I liked still allot Songs like "Hate Me Now". You could say I like him with the more comercial Beats. I felt his newest Album and It Was Written the most. When I wanna hear Nas-al-like music,I mostly go for Moob Deep caus I feel theyr production more.

I think there are 2 sides of Nas...which is why i could never really get in2 his stuff. There's the slightly introspective stuff which i like...then there's the flossing style...which is bland and cookie cutter 2 me. I just wish he waz more consistent. I like his 1st 2 albums alot. But there's alot of hit/miss type stuff on the other albulms.
