AZ – The Essence (Remix) feat. Nas
Man oh man have things changed…
I remember when I used to go NUTS to hear a new track.. NO! scratch that! …
I remember when I used to go NUTS just to hear even the slightest bit of news that the tandem of Nas & AZ; the two rap GOD.MCs were to release a new track containing the two together going back to back.

You couldn’t find a better BROOKLYN x Queens duo with GPS!
Both styles influenced by the theologies of the Five Percenters which undoubtedly resulted in numerous jewel dropping throughout their music along with FLY designer brand name droppings, tales of luxury, all the while reporting to you tales of the rise and falls of growing up in the ghetto’s streets.
Sigh… Hip-Hop.

This tandem has been delivering nothing, but GOODness since their debuts on Nas’ critically acclaimed ’94 golden-era debut, Illmatic where on “Life’s A B*tch” AZ couldn’t have said it better cleverly opening UP with:

“Visualizing the realism of life and actuality,
F”*k who’s the baddest, a person’s status depends on salary/
And my mentality is, money orientated,
I’m destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it”

Well to get to the point of this post…
I’ve stumbled across this gem:

Seven years ago BabyPaul produced the original “The Essence” which appeared on AZ’s ’02 Aziatic, now he’s is back with the remix which in my personal rivals the original.
