GrantLOVE: Nas – Sample Session

Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, otherwise known as Nas, has been pushing out hit songs since 1994. This Queensbridge native is considered by many to be one of Hip Hops  greatest and most revered artists. Arguably he is in most peoples top 10 of all time.

Since his critically acclaimed debut album Illmatic was released, Nas has had a string of hit records, as well as underground smashes.He continues to this day to travel the world performing many of his all time classics as well as record new material.

Producers from Large Professor, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Q-Tip, Dr. Dre, Trackmasters, Timbaland, and many more have blessed Nas with the beats that he flowed over. This list is a minor example of the types of songs that were chopped, interpolated, or sampled. I hope you enjoy this musical journey.
