Nas ft. Swizz Beatz – Top Down (Unreleased)

Swizz released a version of his song from One Man Band Man with Nas rapping on it for today’s installment of Monster Mondays. Swizz actually had this to say about the song to MTV back in 2007:

“The record was originally for Nas,” he explained. “I got Nas’ vocals already. But I can’t do Nas, and his energy is not right on there. It would be dead weight. No disrespect, but it can’t be dead weight if I can’t make it feel like reality. I need the sh– crazy. I need to shoot a video! It’s gotta be another ‘It’s Me B—hes,’ but bigger. I could easily pull a Nas card and have people be like, ‘Nas is spazzing on the verse.’ But it has to be a movie. I got it. It just gotta make sense. I can get Nas, [Jay-Z] and [Jadakiss] on that. I can do that. It’s light work, but it’s gotta make sense.”

This actually leaked on a mixtape back in 2009, and we posted it too, but it had went largely unnoticed. I’m posting it again now because Nas stans would get outraged if we were to ignore three whole verses from their savior.

    Good trade for the Knicks.

    Not this season, but for next season and the future. They had no chance of beating the Bulls, Heat, or Magic as they were constructed. Now with a little luck and/or a smart move or two, they have a chance.

    thats the pitons in st. lucia by the way…..

    do niggas not realize how good Landry Fields is?

    did niggas forget Chauncey is a champion called Big Shot Billups?

    do niggas not know how good a perimeter defender and athlete Corey Brewer is?

    do niggas not realize that Danilo Gallinari is a bum, Timofey Mosgov is Blake Griffins posterboy and Eddy Curry is a 400 pound homosexual?

    do niggas not realize that Ray Felton has never played on a team with a winning record since college…

    Knicks just emptied the trash … Amare gonna have so much more room to operate now…

    exactly..

    and the Knicks are now a good team Son…

    sowhatchusayin?

    remember … even good teams need role players… especially perimeter defenders… wasnt you talkin bout Michael Pietrus a few weeks ago?

    Brewer = Pietrus, right now… at least

  16. Charles Oakley Says:

    Bulls, Heat, Knicks, Celtics, Magic

    All of these teams truly dislike each other. The playoffs will be a throwback style bloodbath.

    I hope someone gets killed on the court. *please be KG*

    nah Brewer is probably better than Pietrus right now. I thought Brewer was going to Denver though?

    I have been saying that same thing on here for a minute. I think most people underrate defense, I don’t think I do however. I do think post/paint defense is more important than perimeter defense though.

    do niggas not realize that Ray Felton has never played on a team with a winning record since college…

    Land is the worse when it comes to sports. Just two months ago this nigga was praising Felton, now he’s shitting on him.
