Single: Nas - Hey Young World (prod. by Green Lantern)

Levi's jean company has recently been tapping some of today's best musicians to re-craft the work of those creative minds that inspired them and are fittingly calling the ad campaign Pioneer Sessions. Here we see what happens when they got up with Nasir Ben Alu Dara...

While I would've thought that Rakim's style was much more akin to Nas and maybe would've been a broader influence, there is no doubt that the all-time GOAT status as a master storyteller that Slick Rick wielded his whole career (and still does whenever he pops up here or there) had to of rubbed off on Esco too...

Great re-make of Rickey's luminous classic and Green 100% gets busy with the beat work...wow...I need a whole album worth of shit like this from Nas man...someone get Levi's to reach out to this man every week!
