Nas – “The Season” (prod. by J Dilla)
Not that he ever really went anywhere, but Nas is back!
Last night Nas dropped “The Season“, a brand new track showcasing the rapper in vintage form backed by a beat produced by J Dilla.
Dilla’s horn-heavy beat originally appeared on his 2005 album “Donuts” as “Gobstopper”.
“The Season” arrives on the heels of Nas’ label, Mass Appeal, releasing the Run The Jewels album for free ahead of its release date last week. The track was first leaked via shaky cellphone video taken from a Run The Jewels fan appreciation party in Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Johnny Jewel – Chromatics + Glass Candy
Fans of Chromatics and Glass Candy should stop by Johnny Jewel’s Soundcloud page and have a look-see.
The producer behind the boards of most of the Italians Do It Better stable has been releasing a steady trickle of free tracks from his vast catalog for the past week or so, including this cover of New Order’s “Ceremony” by Chromatics.
And when I think Halloween, one of the tracks that always comes to mind is the Geto Boys’ “Mind Playing Tricks On Me“; if you’re looking for an upbeat take on a modern classic for your Halloween mixtape, give this Glass Candy track a spin.
Look for a new Glass Candy album next spring.
