Martorialist exclusive: unreleased Nas demo produced by Large Professor!
Firstly, don't get your hopes up because this isn't the fabled Eric B demo (which, let's face it, means it was actually produced by Large Pro) recorded before Live At The BBQ, but another track from the later two song cassette tape demo that also featured Life Is Like A Dice Game which Xtra-P and Nas shopped around to various record labels in 1992. Unsure of the track's title but, essentially, this is yung Nasir exploring The Message's "it's like a jungle sometimes" trope over a typically dense early 90s Large Pro update of Sounds Of The Safari by the Jungle Brothers, and it's absolutely incredible!
