Hip-hop heads should immediately recognize the sample that kicks off N.O.R.E.'s new track. Ofra Haza's iconic vocal line from "Im Nin'alu" -- best known for its inclusion in Coldcut's popular remix of Eric B & Rakim's "Paid In Full" -- opens up the track, which also features Mack Wilds, CityBoy Dee, Tweez and Troy Ave.
Said to be taken from N.O.R.E. and his Good Belt Gang's upcoming mixtape, the track offers up a deft blend of new and classic elements, including good looks from young artists Mack WIlds and Troy Ave. Props to whoever produced this beat, because it does a great job of keeping that vocal sample sounding fresh.
Runnin' through the city of champs with extendos
Or catch me out in MIA, I'm with N.O.
When the fiends come to the crib, that's a bando
Where I'm from they come to the whip, and it's a rental
