Last night on Radio 1, Annie Mac gave the world premiere to a very special remix of Nas‘s “The Don“, coming to us courtesy of the legendary Bristol-hailing production outfit Massive Attack. The original was an incredible testament as to why this guy is regarded as one of the greats, and drafting in a duo of Massive Attack’s calibre was always going to yield some next-level results. It’s a diversion from the vibe of the original – taking a slightly more subtle approach – the drums still smack, and Nas still sounds dope.
This is insane. No word on a release date for this remix, but the original’s out now – taken from his forthcoming 10th studio album Life Is Good (out July 17th on Def Jam).
