Deep: NaS x Columbia Records Illmatic Release Party

blame it on JES7 January 29, 2012

I know, I’ve been slacking hardbody on these (2)Deep posts. I blame it on my lack of a good camera, and I’m not a fan of pulling images from the internet if I own the product I’m showcasing. *shrugs* I think the dopehouse will thoroughly enjoy this one though. I forgot exactly where I stumbled upon this audio, but it was definitely a few years ago. This was recorded live from NaS’ Illmatic release party, presented by Columbia Records (as I typed that, for some reason, the Fugees Red Intro popped up in my head. Ha!) NaS and co., including brother Jungle, navigates through three four cuts off Illmatic with ease. Always wondered if there was video footage of this. As a bonus, you can catch the NaS audio (pre-Illmatic) of some freestyles (some of them off-the-dome, some of It Was Written) while on the Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito show after the jump.
