Nas, Kanye West, Rakim & KRS-One - (Classic) Better Than I’ve Ever Been (Remix)

Featuring:
Producer:
DJ Premier
Album:
'Air Force 1' 25th Anniversary Promo

Nas pronounced hip-hop dead, then broke out the defibrillator and shocked it back to life.  (Classic) Better Than I’ve Ever Been is a Nike Air Force One 25th Anniversary Promo, and like the sneaker it’s a classic.  The old school-new school collaboration features a straight turntable beat and verses from legends Nas, Rakim, and KRS-One showing the difference between “MC-ing and rap.”  The question here is Kayne, does he belong among such prolific company?  While it may be a little soon to grant K-West timeless status, his verse proves he can hold his own among the greatest of all-time.  Better Than I’ve Ever Been is required listening for anyone who loves hip-hop.  Do you?
