Classics: Nasir Jones: The Resurrection

 

Nasir Jones: The Resurrection
KING SMIJ
2001

With this Classics section, I wanted to offer my readers something timeless each month. Anyone that knows me, understands my deep love of music. So I thought it was only right to include some releases that have either stayed in my collection, my heart or both.

To kick things off during the launch of www.flawlesscrowns.com, I couldn’t pick a better selection than this long forgotten mixtape Nasir Jones: The Resurrection. Mixed by KING SMIJ, this CD was released in late 2001 during the height of the war of words between Nas and Jay-Z.

During that time I remember playing this CD for anyone that would listen to it. Everyone that heard it agreed that it was a classic. I ended up loosing the CD somehow. Through some due dilgance, I was able to track down KING SMIJ and he was nice enough to send me it.

In my opinion Nas is Rap’s greatest lyricist of all time and I think this great mix of classic songs, unreleased tracks and freestyles will prove me correct.

    This cd paid the bills for years after its release. LOL Who knew? I just made it out of my love of hip-hop. Thanks

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks
