Nah Right


Magic Mike:

When I set out to do ‘Journey Into Scratchin’, I wanted to work with 2 DJ’s that I respected the most in the genre where I started. I watched QBert back in the New Music Seminar days when I was at the peak of my career and all I could say was wow. DJ Craze took what I helped start in Florida to a whole different level. Once again I was in amazement. It was only right that I do this song with the 2 guys that keep me practicing to this day. I am thankful and humbled that they chose to work with me…

Nas is prepping his new single, “The Don,” to be released tomorrow. The iconic Queensbridge representative flashes a gold pinky ring on the black-and-white cover, hinting at his reign on the lyrical top. The song, which will be debuted tonight on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show, also serves as the second single from Nasir’s upcoming album Life is Good.

UPDATE: The Don is here. Produced by the late Heavy D, Salaam Remi & Da Internz.
Premiered by Funk Flex on Hot 97, so it’s a radio rip for now.

This Thursday, March 15, 2012, the mixtape game’s master storyteller, J.Period, is proud to present The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg an epic tribute to the fallen King of G-Funk. Commemorating the one year anniversary of Nate’s passing, The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg features a who’s who of hip hop luminaries including Snoop Dogg, 2Pac, Eminem, Nas, Ludacris, Dr. Dre, Mos Def and more—an all-star lineup that reflects the worldwide impact of Nate Dogg’s musical talents. The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg also marks the first-ever West Coast hip hop tribute from Brooklyn-based J.Period, originally born in Los Angeles, and raised on West Coast hip hop. Because J.Period is primarily known for collaborations with conscious artists like John Legend, Q-Tip and Lauryn Hill, The Best of Muthaf#ckin Nate Dogg also marks a thematic departure for the DJ—hip hop icon Questlove has already dubbed this his “most ignant mixtape of all time!!”—but proves definitively that J.Period’s DJ skills extend into any arena in hip hop.
