#ILLMATIC20: Nas Releases 12" Vinyl Reproduction of 1992's Halftime

Tue, Nov 12, 2013 at 10:16 AM by User 1 Comments

Originally recorded for the Zebrahead soundtrack by an emerging American MC calling himself Nasty Nas, this explosive debut, in the words of Vibe Magazine, "created a niche that only Illmatic could fill."

 

The single also launched the career of one of the most durable, provocative and poetic rappers in hip-hop history. This facsimile reproduction of the original 12" vinyl includes the full Halftime A-side (1. radio edit, 2. LP version. 3. LP version instrumental) and B-side (1. Butcher Remix 2. Butcher Mix instrumental). Nas' Halftime release provides a fitting overture for the upcoming 20th Anniversary of Illmatic in 2014.
