Nylo - Life's a B*tch

  • Track: Life's a B*tch
  • Producer: Nylo
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

For my money, Life’s a B*tch is the greatest record on Illmatic; from AZ’s opener, to Olu Dala’s cornet solo, to the immortal lyrical stylings Nas himself, everything about it is on-point. So NYLO has some big shoes to fill on her latest feature, a reimagining of that classic joint. Rather than hewing too close to the original, the buzzing singer/songwriter plays to her own strengths, crooning its lyrics over her own jittery, yet agitated electronic boardwork. Has Nylo done Nasir Jones collaborator proud with this creative cover? Debate away—and, if you like what you’re hearing, keep it locked for more from the indie phenom.
