    it is kind of interesting to hear it flipped (in the same way) once as a very introspective album cut and once as a radio hit. “lucid dreams” is a cool breakout hit, totally representative of everything juice was as an artist, but this is easily, easily nas.

    Dope thread!

    Man, holy f--- never realized The Message flipped that same sample because I haven’t listened to it since like high school. Probably my favorite Nas song too. This one is too tough to call honestly

    Nas—I like Lucid Dreams but I'm honestly not the hugest fan of that first Juice album.

    Great thread idea!

    Hard to go wrong with that impeccable Nas intro, great flip and obviously legendary performance from Escobar.

    I do think however, Juice flipped the sample better. Such a devastating loss, what a talent he was...
