London’s Moteleola is back with a remix tape centred around the songs of hip hop legends Jay Z and Nas.
The relationship between Jay Z and Nas has been somewhat fraught over the years but that hasn’t stopped Moteleola from bringing them together for his brand new remix tape. Hova Nasir is a 4-track release with two original remixes (Jay Z’s Pray and Nas’ Last Real Nigga Alive) and their respective instrumentals. If you’ve heard Daft Punk’s formerly unreleased Computerized, you may get the same feeling from Pray with thick regimental drums and I’d argue this is a better effort. However, Moteleola stays true to Nas’ Queens upbringing with a gritty remix combining gruff lyricism and heavy boom bap rhythms. Put simply, these beats were made for these rappers. Anyone have their numbers or email addresses? They need to know about this.
