Nas’ 1991 Demo Tape

“He sounds like G Rap, and G Rap don’t sell no records. I’m not fuckin’ with Nas.”— Russell Simmons

This has been floating around for some time, but here is Nasir’s 18-year-old demo tape courtesy of  Blind I . According to MC Serch in the April 2009 XXL, he took this tape to Faith Newman-Orbach and David Kahne at Columbia Records after getting snubbed by Uncle Rush the same day. Ironically, Nasty Nas is now on the label Russell built. What goes around comes around, my nigga.

YN Update: This is a collection of more than his actual demo. But good music nonetheless. Edutain yourself, kids.
