Masterminds Remixed: TenDJiz- CommoNasm (Common & Nas Meet Soviet Soul Jazz)

This is probably one of the coolest projects you’ll ever see put together, and thankfully when you hit play the execution lives up to the level of the concept. So what’s the concept then, right?? TenDJiz of Miami uses a capellas from two of hip hop’s biggest and longest lasting heavyweights, Common and Nas, and mixes them over some dope samples of Soviet soul and jazz. If you’re upset that Nas and Common haven’t delivered the joint album that they alluded to after releasing “Ghetto Dreams”, this is definitely good enough to make you postpone the protest march for at least a week.

Debate Team: “Illmatic” Vs. “Food & Liquor” With Brooklyn Bodega’s The Company Man

 

An old classic and a new classic. Nas’ 1994 debut album Illmatic undoubtedly comes up in any die-hard hip hop lover’s list of top all-time hip hop records. Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor is not such a gimme, but that might only be because it just came out in 2006, making it too recent in our minds to warrant that type of consideration. But is Lupe’s Food & Liquor really a “new classic”? Is it better than Illmatic??

After a RE/Mixed Media Festival panel discussion in Brooklyn, I talked with Brooklyn Bodega managing editor and Hip Hop DX contributing writer The Company Man to have the ultimate debate. Illmatic vs. Food & Liquor.
