Large Professor's remix of Nas' "It Ain't Hard To Tell" (which he originally produced) was recorded in 1994, and has been unearthed for inclusion on Illmatic XX. For those unaware, the new project is a reissuing of Nas' definitive debut album that will include a bonus disc complete with demos, freestyles, rarities and remixes. Can you dig it?
How do they compare? (Watch the original music video for "It Ain't Hard To Tell" below.)
Hit the Earth like a comet – invasion!
Nas is like the Afrocentric Asian
Cause in my physical, I can express through song
Delete stress like Motrin, then extend strong
I drink Moet with Medusa, give her shotguns in hell
From the spliff that I lift and inhale, it ain't hard to tell
