I must admit, Nas has the hip-hop world buzzing over his new remixes of my favorite HHID track "Where Are They Now" in 2007! On the album version of this track Nas reminds fans about the forgotten hip-hop pioneers that paved the way by asking the simple question "Where Are They Now?" At the end of the record Nas reassured everyone that the track was not meant to be considered a diss toward the mentioned pioneers in any way. To prove it he put together three massive remixes showcasing many of the forgotten hip-hop veterans while he played the background vocally. The original album version is dope enough, but these three remixes have taken the record over the top! Some of these veterans haven't touched a mic for many years, but Nas got them together and created some serious posse cuts may go down in hip-hop history. Most of the katz have never been on a record together before these remixes, so that makes them even more impressive. Nas has proven once again that he has much respect and influence in the world of hip-hop! It's a miracle that the God Son was able to resurrect so many of these forgotten hip-hop souls from the afterlife for one more hoorah! True hip-hop fans are glad he did. Mainstream hip-hop needed this jolt of life....
