    haha

  39. deepdish Says:

    i normally don’t get hung up on the censored tracks like my boys do, but this is almost as bad as listening to tupac’s “still ballin'” on the radio.

  40. shot 9 times Says:

    As one of my former enemies, I gotta give props to Nas on this track & video. I think he’s gonna have quite a stellar career as a worker up there at Def Jam. With heat like this, he’s definitely gonna get a lot of “Employee of the Month” awards, and Jay will be handing him the trophies.

  41. Stephen C. Says:

    Kinda of Base Here

    but me and my girl had an argument on Hip-Hop

    We’re both from the south, but I moved to the east coast at 16. Prior to that tyme the only music we listened to back home was old three six, playa fly, skinny pimp…and alot other local artists.

    It wasn’t until I moved that I discovered Hip-Hop? The Illmatics and Reasonable Doubts…artists who crafted verses that made you rewind the tape. Back home it was all bout “kill him” “get buck” and other non Hip-Hop Messages.

    However the argument started when I told her, the differences that I see in Music from Region to Region. I tried to get her to listen to a Lupe verse and tell me what she got from it (not expecting for her to a critical analysis, but atleast gather the general concept.) She missed by a longshot.

    I told her it’s like the music that’s being forced-fed conmmercially down south, conditons the mind not to hear real hip-hop. It’s like if you listen to that music for so long, you become incapable of understanding the similies and metaphors of quality rappers. I also mention the comment 50 Cent made about the south, ( People down south don’t wanna think when they listen to music, they just wanna have fun)…at first I was offended, but then I remebered my experience growing up in the south… I slowly begin to agree. Though 50 Cent may not be the greatest messenger. The message, to me still remains true.

    She was heated. Did I go to far?

  42. Don Fujimori Says:

    Yeah man the deiting is definately trash work…the levels are even distorted on the beginning of the first verse he shouldve just recorded an entire clean version.
    >>>>and whats good with the brazilian dimes from behind edit..fuck! whats next theyre gonna edit out ‘dead’?????????

  43. Don Fujimori Says:

    …oh yea the video is ahhhh thiefs theme video was illmatic.

  44. LE1 baby son Says:

    Kind of confused why nas released a song with the same beat as his first single 2 albums in a row??????? thiefs theme wasnt THAT good. actually i didnt like it at all. This is beter at least.

  45. D. Billz Says:

    Feelin’ the video… Nasir on his dean.

  46. alwayzambitious Says:

    The video was sub par, it was loosely based on the song.. I would have liked to seen him go in the radio station and at least demand where is the hip hop…

    the video was only aight in execution… where do i go to share my video treatments.. thats another reason why nas is not as memorable as jay.. the videos are only ok

    alwayzambitious

  47. NYtillIdie Says:

    no diggs, not only is jay-z more memorable than my man nas, jay understands and has more control when it comes to how his demographic will view him on a daily basis, on every level down to every camera shot and sound bite he uses to promote. Its not that nas dont have the power that jay does to get what he wants its that he REALLY dont understand every facet of marketing like jay does..Nas dont realize how important that is, hes still old school in that respect, he feels that rhyme skill alone should determine an mcs place in history, but what he wont see is that most people that buy hip-hop albums are fuckin retarts and we all know that there is more retarts than there is smart people, so jay will always sell to ALL retarts and MOST smart people and nas only sells to smart people who usually talk shit about fake-ass marketing schemes and all the retarts they are surrounded with that listen to jay-z…ITS ALL RETARTED BULLSHIT!! NAS AND JAY ARE BOTH NASTY.. TWO TOTALLY DIFFERNT DUDES NEITHER IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER, NAS COMPLETES CRAZY DEEP THOUGHTS EVERY 4-8 BARS, EVERY BAR JAY SPITS IS A COMPLETE THOUGHT IN AND OF ITSELF NOO YAWK NEVER DIED / EMPIRE STATE

  48. SUPER SUPER SUPER CLEAN Says:

    I Mean SHEEEEEEEEEEIT… might as well just play the instrumental

  49. unkut.com - A Tribute To Ignorance (Remix) Says:

    […] Black Market Malitia dropped this remix with R.A. earlier this year, but I only just around to rocking it. Rugged Man’s verse sounds like the precursor to that Nas name-dropping piece, but he wisely avoids shouting out Fu-Schnickens and Oaktown’s 357. PR reheats “U.F.O” for a Styles P and Sheek one two punch, while his future-shock masterpiece “Game of Death” still sounds the business since it first dropped (although I still prefer the Rock Marcy solo version). Preme’s buddy Termanology exposes a whole different verbal technique than he showcased on his break-out single for “100 Jewels”, while Premier produces an ill conceptual Poet drop which still hasn’t surfaced on black wax despite being a few months old. Finally there’s the obligitory GFK material, as his veers away from shop-talk for a classic bugged Starks narrative over what I’m assuming is a Doom producto. […]
