Nas x Aerosmith x Sinatra - Street Dreams (CHEATCODE Remix)

Posted 3 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
CHEATCODE
Album:
None (Promo Single)

Frank Sinatra, Aerosmith and Nas: three acts from very different genres, embodying three distinct musical eras. In other words, the perfect ingredients for an epic mash-up. Though CHEATCODE‘s remix of It Was Written inclusion Street Dreams, newly-released as a promo single, is a Reader’s Digest-style condensation of five-plus decades of pop history, the record doesn’t come off as a simple stunt. By juxtaposing the Queensbridge emcee’s rhymes with samples from Aerosmith’s 1973 single, Dream On, and Ol’ Blue Eyes’ Young at Heart, the Western Massachusetts beatsmith offers a multifaceted commentary on the songs’ shared themes of time, aging and ambition. A commentary which also happens to sound dope as hell. Feeling it? While this remix isn’t part of any forthcoming project, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest compositions from this innovative Bay State beatsmith.
