Soundbites: Nas, T.I. + Eve

"On the kid from the project bench/
That went--Sony BMG//
To that new conglomerate/
Island Def Jam//
Guess how many dollars was spent/
To get the best man...In the Rolls Royce like the king of Nigeria"

Nas - Where Y'all At

This joint has been making rounds for about a week now, hence my reluctance to post it. But I'm curious as to what people think of Nas' current lyrical potency. Most of his guest features as a Def Jam artist have been forgettable (read: his verse on Da Backwudz' "You Gon' Luv Me Remix" and DJ Busta Rhymes' "Don't Get Carried Away." )
But this here harkens to the good ol' Nasty ferocity. Production is solid (sounds like Salaam Remi) but the voice sample could use some Premo-esque tweaking. Love it though.
Rating: 8/10

Bonus Cuts:
T.I. & Eve - Cash Flow
Trae & Yung Joc - In the Hood
Lupe Fiasco - Kick Push II
