nas’s ‘the don’ is a pretty serious tune. salaam remi on production. cv of a big producer since here comes the hot steppa, fu-gee-la, made you look, bust your windows and luv a dub. this one’s a slow burner for slow summer. Nas interview here.
massive attack introduce a lot of space. live (sounding) snares evoke that a-la-mode mid 90s hip hop, but the amount of variation on tone and reverb really opens it out and gives the track more breath.
hot city’s remix brings a different level of density. jump up and bashy as fuck.
