Nas - Capital Rap Show freestyle (1994)
'Illmatic' era Nas live on Westwood's Capital Rap Show, rapping over the 'Ikes Mood' break which is possibly my favourite sample ever (it makes anyone sound good). He does 'Memory Lane' and some off the dome rhymes. Classic stuff either way.
Back in the days of 56K dial-up, I remember uploading a yousendit link of a pretty muffled and hissy tape rip of this. Fortunately, a couple of years ago I found a great quality WAV posted at Kam from Mr Bongo's blog (unfortunately he doesnt update it often). Anyway, I've been playing it a fair bit recently so thought Id share it.
