Nas Strolls Down Memory Lane, Talking The Legendary Producers Who Backed Him Early, With Zane Lowe
Illmatic XX has Nas really looking in his rearview. The sometimes reclusive Queensbridge MC is completely open in looking at the formation of his most celebrated album. Zane Lowe, who is getting unrivaled access to guys like Eminem, Jay Z, and Kanye West, sits down with Nasir on his audio BBC show, and goes back in time to discuss the chemistry with Pete Rock, Large Professor, and DJ Premier.
Also, Nas recalls chilling with RuffHouse label-mates, The Fugees, and some other early ’90s gems.
