Quick heads up on a tune that I must have listened to at least 30 times today (still on school holidays), the original demo version of Nas’ ‘It Ain’t Hard To Tell’. I got this care of Stretch Armstrong over at Konstant Kontakt: if you haven’t visited yet you should get your arse over there because Stretch has got loads of audio from shows back in the day that epitomise the quality of hip hop in the early ’90s. I downloaded all three of these original demos, but the clear favourite for me is ‘It Ain’t Hard To Tell’ with completely different lyrics and a slammin’ beat which still utilises ‘Human Nature’ as its key sample source. Cop it here and get a load of it.
