NAS – “SEASONS” (Produced by J. DILLA)

UPDATE!! Here’s the official version via 2dopeboyz.

Last night in New York at a private event for El-P’s & Killer Mike’s “Run The Jewels” 2 album, Mass Appeal Records president, Nasir Jones aka Nasty Nas aka Nas, came thru to support the dynamic duo. ┬áIn the process, he previewed his first single from his upcoming album. The song is called “Seasons”┬áthat is produced by none other than the G.O.D….the late great┬áJ Dilla! (Nas used the Gobstopper beat from Donuts). Even though we know that Nas was originally supposed to be on J Dilla-produced song with Notorious B.I.G. & Busta Rhymes in the 90’s, this is something that is long overdue and it’s good to hear Nas over a Dilla beat. ┬áDilla would be smiling right now.

Peep the preview below and then peep the other video footage taken from Dilla’s last tour ever in Europe with Frank Nitt, Ma Dukes, Dave New York & Rhettmatic, where he actually mentions the song that Biggie, Busta, & Nas on one song!
