Outside of Nas’ verse on the Madlib-produced “The Sickness” for J Dilla’s posthumous album, The Diary, Heads don’t have much collaborative material between the legendary MC and illustrious producer to choose from. Each has contributed greatly to Hip-Hop’s enduring legacy, and while Nas may have more commercial success in the traditional sense, there’s no denying the fervor with which music fans discuss Madlib’s influential and innovative body of work. While we keep hope alive that, one day, these two giants will work together more directly, a new project has surfaced that will whet the appetite of any hardcore Hip-Hop fan – thanks to a relatively unknown creative genius from Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

DOOM & Sade Get Mashed Up On SADEVILLAIN (Full EP Stream)

Nasimoto is a brilliant mashup tape that pairs Nas vocals with Quasimoto beats. As fans are well aware, Lord Quas is one of Madlib’s many incarnations and most recently released 2013’s Yessir Whatever. However, it’s Quasimoto’s 2000 debut, the 24-track masterpiece The Unseen, that serves as DBegun’s sonic inspiration for this mixtape. Over the course of the 21-track affair, DBegun pulls Nas lyrics from Illmatic, combining “One Love” with “Microphone Mathematics”; It Was Written, combining “If I Ruled the World” with “Astro Travelin'”; I Am…, combining “Dr. Knockboot” with “Discipline 99 Pt. 0”; Stillmatic, combining “Rewind” with “Axe Puzzles”; The Lost Tapes, combining “Blaze a 50” with “24/7”; God’s Son, combining “Get Down” with “Low Class Conspiracy”; Street’s Disciple, combining “Thief’s Theme” with “Blitz”; and more.
