Nas – Testify

I love how languid this is, the hook is so fresh. It’s taken from Nas’ Untitled 2008 album.

I was recalling this week when I saw Nas play in Dublin. It must have been around ‘04. I was pretty disillusioned by the crowd (lots of tracksuits) and support acts (I remember one was two lads from Cork “rapping” about the interent), but he still brought it. I also was standing about 10 meters from Kelis, who he was married to at the time.

Dr.Hook* – When you’re in love with a beautiful woman (GPF)

Another classic to round off the week. What a great video! Could it be more 70’s?

This is just so silky smooth, I particularly like the backing vocals. I can’t help but smile whenever I hear it.

Can’t believe it’s September tomorrow…
