As you probably know by now, Nas is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his classic album Illmatic on April 15th, by releasing Illmatic XX, which, similar to plans from Mobb Deep for The Infamous, will contain a double disc album with all the original album tracks plus previously unheard ones from the same era, including remixes, freestyles etc. The other week we heard one such freestyle, "'93 Stretch & Bobbito Freestyle."Â
Today we are treated to an unheard cut for Illmatic XX, "I'm A Villain", which finds classic Nas rhymes over a pretty simple beat. What more could you ask for on this Monday afternoon?
Listen and be sure to pre-order the anniversary release on iTunes.
Give me a Smif N Wessun and I'll have niggas undressing
I'm rolling with a mob, and run from the cops
Drive stolen cars, and shoot many glocks
A marijuana addict, if niggas want static
They had it, 'cause I flip just like an acrobatic
I'm always on the corners rollin' up 'cess
When I dress it's never nothing less than Guess
So I walk with a Â bop and my hat turned back
Love committing sins and my friends sell crack
