Being one of the biggest tracks of 2015, "March Madness" deserved a huge remix, but no Future fans would’ve expected one of the game's most revered veterans to step up to the plate. Nas' inspired rapping here proves there's more continuity in hip-hop than conservative critics would like to admit.
Future raps like no one who was around during the height of Nas' career, but that doesn't mean the spirit is much different. Nas giving his stamp of approval on one of Future's GOAT tracks unites two generations of hip-hop that are often seen in opposition to one another, and it's about time.

UPDATE: Head here to hear the CDQ version of Nas' "March Madness" remix.

Shout to my n*ggas who dead
We got the stripes
All I got is my real n*ggas for life
Nas pour Henny, Future pour dirty Sprite
