  • Artist: Nas
  • Track: (Classic) Better Than I've Ever Been (Remix)
  • Feat. Kanye West, Rakim
  • 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?
