TAPE DECK SHUFFLE-COMMON vs. NAS SPECIAL
Common and Nas take it back to the mid-90's with the sound and even the artwork on Common's sensational new single 'Ghetto Dreams', so to celebrate this weeks 'Shuffle' sees their classics go head-to-head.
I USED TO LOVE H.E.R.- Common's classic dedication to the game resurrected his life and gave him a career in hip-hop.
THE LIGHT Feat ERYKAH BADU- With his former beau Badu, Common turned on audiences and enlightened a genre.
RETROSPECT FOR LIFE Feat LAURYN HILL- Com's collabo with the Fugees legend is a hard-hitting education on abortion. A necessary listen.
LOVE IS- One of raps, most beautifully deep tracks. This is life. This is love.
FOREVER BEGINS- Epic, inspiring and influential, complete with Pops this is the real feel-good anthem.
IT AINT HARD TO TELL- It's easy to see that this Michael Jackson sampler is the king of hip-hop classics.
IF I RULED THE WORLD (IMAGINE THAT) Feat LAURYN HILL- Ms. Hill joins the G.O.D. this time for a heavenly partnership.
ONE MIC- Huge, ground-breaking, epic and thought-provoking. On his own and against the world with his microphone Nas didn't need anything else.
MADE YOU LOOK- The only underground anthem worthy of gun-shots ringing over it. Number one with a bullet, without a doubt. Check the remix.
HIP-HOP IS DEAD- In declaring the death of his genre with this classic, Nas actually brought 'H.E.R.' back to life. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
