      really cool looking set but in these days of prolific limited 90′s archived releases, we want more music if we’re paying more money and the Nas demos have been highly sought after for years. If they couldn’t get their hands on those than at least lace up a bonus CD with all the remixes and instrumentals and shit in high quality. This comes off as strictly eye candy for the shelf shit.

      Ehhh.. cool re-issue for what it is tho, i do want one.

      To blither on.. Disappointed cause a couple of years ago one of the limited labels, One Leg Up, had secured the Nas demos to be pressed up that year but the label met it’s demise before it could happen. So i figured if they, a smaller label, hooked that up then Get On Down, with their label connections, should have easily been able to make that happen for the heads out here.
