Ok, I know 9 out of 10 is gonna pick Life's A Bitch, so try to pick another one. The most obvious is Mo Money, Mo Murda, but my personal favorite is How Ya Livin from AZ's second album, Pieces Of A Man.. The beat is ill, and the whole feeling in the track is ill.. plus I like how the rhyme back and forth..

post your thoughts..

i think the track is called "serious" on Nas' Best of mixtape. thats an ill track, one of the best examples of rapping 2 the beat i heard!

The Flyest, off of Nas's Stillmatic LP

the flyest is the best. they rap with each other instead of individually like on life's a bitch. i don't like the beat, or lack there of, on life's a bitch anyway. i think its the weakest song on illmatic (ducks for cover)

Love the essence. Mainly because of the mood in the song.
But every one of their collabos was brillant, crazy nice chemistry.

yeah, they just got that thing together which makes their tracks so chill and ill.. But damn, I don't know if it's just me, but that song How Ya' Livin!! it's fucking ill, the weather is soo great these days over here, and every morning when I cycle to school I put on that song, and damn it just goes hand in hand with the weather (no homo!!) hahahaha..

Nas: {Verse One}

Back to back Benzes, wit the wild gremlins
Gaudiere style lenses, talents in the 40 cal, this is
Life now, let me find out, you want the life style of mine
no pal of mine
Runnin' wit goons wit knife wounds from jail time
Got the squad lookin' like tycoon, we all shine
While we parle wit the flyest mommy of 25th street
Watch how honey in the Lex do it
I'm in the 6 V wit the 12 next to it
You wanna stick me, then put ya best to it
I die black, we see you in Allah Kingdom you try that
Check the fly cat, 2 point 5 multiply that
Cash rules, on my arm I flash jewels, and tatoos
You can look, but don't touch we bad news

AZ: {Verse Two}
American Me, elgancy, treasury
Wit the hopes to be rich before the bury me
Born a Baptist, but moved on to higher practice
My fire ashes, only macks I interact wit
We all Dons, strong arm, all on calm
But if it's war we on, comin' for niggas who crossed me wrong
Select features, sit back connect the pieces
Inject the thesis, spoke to my pops and left him speechless
He saw me sprout, goin' through worlds that wore me out
Never call me out, bitches and money, that's what we all about
Through all the routes landed here, beach houses wit the chandaliere
Me & my crew, mad cans of beer
It's copin', live vibe, still eyes open, it's clear
Presidential Suites at the Tangiere

I can't believe how ill that song is, haha..

What ya'll really should be asking is why haven't they collaborated on an album together...and no, the firm dosen't count. Just the two of 'em on some crazy production, maybe a little premo, a some 9th wonder....whateva. Has Nas not done this yet w/ AZ b/c AZ aint as big or some other sh-t. Even if they released it today it'd be about 7 years late...I'll still take it.
