New Music: Nas – ‘It Ain’t Hard to Tell (The Laidback Remix)’

Illmatic XX

On Tuesday, Nas will celebrate the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking debut with Illmatic XX. The double-disc album features unreleased demos, freestyles, and rare remixes including the Laidback remix to “It Ain’t Hard to Tell,” which he premiered today.

Produced by The Creators, the rarity was originally featured as one of the U.K. remixes on the 12″ vinyl.

    I Lon not feeling it. The track is ok but I don’t think it compliments the flow well. Remixes r cool but sometimes the original shouldn’t be messed with. Love the great Nasir Jones tho! #MusicLover
