Nas Jumps on Gil Scott-Heron Remix

MP3:> Gil Scott-Heron: “New York Is Killing Me” [ft. Nas]

In February, spoken word poet and rap ancestor Gil Scott-Heron released the grizzled return-to-form lament “New York Is Killing Me”, off of his Best New Music album I’m New Here.

Now Nas, one of Scott-Heron’s greatest descendants, has jumped on the track to add some of his own dizzy, apocalyptic imagery. All in all, Nas uses the track to make a pretty good case for not living in New York.
