Destroyed

Hip-Hop's Ur-Self Got Himself a War

But there's nothing like the comfort of old friends. Brooklyn rapper AZ first appeared with Nas on Illmatic's "Life's a Bitch," a weedhead homily nonpareil, and reappeared four albums later swapping line for line on Stillmatic, adding a touch of humility to Nas's bombast. They repeat the trick on "The Essence," from AZ's Aziatic (Motown). Over a Mary Jane Girls sample, the pair get wistful over libertine celebrities, flash outfits, a Deniece Williams concert, and Allah. No bad shit on their minds. Can it be that it was all so simple then?
