DJ Moneyshot "Half Man Half Amazing" (Mixtape, 2014)

20 years ago, Nas released his legendary Illmatic album! DJ Moneyshot has put together an outstanding tribute mix, Nas: Half-Man Half-Amazing as an audio documentary threading together sample sources, interview footage and remixes, alongside the original Illmatic tracks. Hear the vocabulary, the flow and the rhythm expertly delivered by Nas, backed up by the sublime production of Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Large Professor and Q-Tip, plus original samples from Lee Erwin, The Heath Brothers, Ahmad Jamal and Reuben Wilson. Don't put this in your box if your sh!t eats tapes!
