You’ll notice it uses the same sample that was used in Thief’s Theme.

    *whole world

  22. Renato Pagnani Says:

    will.i.am. threw in the “Made You Look” percussion around 0:45, that’s cool. This is pretty grimy for will, dude gets shittin’ on so much but he is a very talented producer.

  23. Paperstacker Says:

    yeah problamatic, true shit aint looking good, but im sure jay got a track for these niggas on the lp. especially cam and the dipset niggas.

    dont know the deal with the sigel shit though. thought there was no beef?

    Sigels mouth is a little looser now…sayin both jay and dame shitted on him, and its fuck em both…

  26. iLL Change Says:

    this track isnt real ill. but after hearing Everything I Love, Music For Life, Why You Hate The Game, and this, everybody should be hyped.

  27. iLL Change Says:

    a wish NaS and Prodigy woulda done a track on H.N.I.C. where thye both drop a 32

  28. iLL Change Says:

    everybody ghost

  29. J Says:

    The usual Nas hate I see……..1. The track is dope. I don’t care if it uses the same sample from Thief’s Theme which is certified d.o.P.E. I’m just thankful that no other artist sullied the track prior to Godson b/c the beat is hard. 2. Nasir gives our younger viewers (don’t get distracted, we’re not talkin age here) an example of flow as well as a change from the usual content. He effortlessly guides you along into a space where only Nasir can take you. I will be the first to admit that Nas has had several missteps along the way. But if this track serves as any indication of what we will hear on the new album, then I am very bullish.

  30. LL(not the rappa) Says:

    i like what im hearing..but umm, im not feeling 2 good about nas being leaked and this supposed to be jays month, nas album aint even due till december, ill be more hyped if something leaked like the end of nov… dayuum this earrly.

    Fuck man, “Compton” is hard body. will.i.am. really gave Game some moody shit for “Compton”. I don’t even mind him rapping the chorus, the least obtrusive (and annoying) will has been in a looooong time. All four Game songs that have leaked today (err, in the past two days, I guess) have been en fuego. Game just needs a big single (I really don’t think “Let’s Ride (Strip Club)” is it) and he’ll easily 1.5 million.

    I’m guessin it’s only a matter of days before the whole thing leaks.

    Game got the hottest leaked joints so far..

    Nas doesnt have any wack leaked joints yet..

    Jay got one WACK one, and 2, just ok’s,
    “thats a one hot song every 3 leak average and thats so LAAaaaaaaMMMeeeeee!!!!”

    Btw, top of the mornin’, crumbs.

  104. D. Billz Says:

    That Nas track is fire. Lol @ bettin’ the DJ’s feel salty about that “load up the AK” line. Fuck ‘em. It needed to be said and of course we can count on God’s Son to be the first to say somethin’.

    That Game “Compton” track is a banger. I don’t know why yall keep shittin’ on Will and the BEP’s. Yeah, they used to be a nuisance to me too. But lets not forget that those mofos are straight outta East L.A. aka Vato Vill. When they gettin’ in fights and shit, it aint because they’re tryin’ to prove somethin’. It’s because they actually grew up around that kinda environment.

    Btw, I like how he flipped that sample that was also used for De La’s “Stakes Is High”. One of the best samples ever.

  105. D. Billz Says:

    Oh yeah, for the record Kardinall is one of the illest lyricists bar none. I copped his debut a few months ago (yeah, I know… dumb late) and that shit was highly slept on (at least in the U.S.). Bakardi Slang was just some pop radio shit compared to the rest of the album. And his version of Maxine is CRRRRRAZY. Also, after watchin’ that Hov and Kardi clip, don’t be surprised if he ends on Roc La Familia. True story.

    By the way… Klo and Cali… what’s up some with some reggae joints chief? Yall got somethin’ against dancehall? LOL
