How come I've never heard this? Shiiiit who cares, I'm amped I found it today.
The homie Chuck over at Hip Hop & Vinyl Giant liberated this 12'' vinyl rip of a mid-90's heater called "Analyze This" featuring an all-star line-up - Nas, Jay-Z and Lord Tariq (yes, of "De Ja Vu" fame with the senior Gunz) over head-nodding Pete Rock production.
Anything I write can't even describe this raw, vintage hip-hop, so I'll let the MC's do it. Jay's up first:
Everything's for dough now Flow, you gotta pay a little mo' now It's platinum nowadays, we put the gold down We stepped it up, y'all don't even want a show down Get wetted up by the sleeve that leave the bezzle out Y'all don't like it? Sue me, fuck, I'll settle out Ghetto-ed out in the vehicle, bent These days I've mellowed out, see success make a fella content
Gotta love Jigga's laid-back swag from back in the day. Tariq is on deck:
Ain't nothin changed but the players, the game remains the same I had a ten-year run, hey, I can't complain Took the next step see, from coke to Pepsi From the BX we ridin' to South Beach on jetski
Not bad. Then Nasir closes things out like a healthy Billy Wagner:
Bought my clique glaciers and pagers Ten deep to Las Vegas Copped a live crop, chopped it up, hit my block off wit gatorsFeedin peoples from the Bridge to Decatur By now, 2 years, five months and 30 days later I still put out the street flavor
A great end to a solid throwback joint, I'm lovin it.
Once again, big props to Chuck at HH&VG for the crisp vinyl rip, Enjoy!
