About this item

Plucked from the grooves of the legendary 'Illmatic' (#3 on Patch's hottest hip hop records of all time list.) "It Ain't Hard To Tell" saw the Queensbridge local do his thing over a killer beat from regular collaborator Large Professor. The beat is killer, and the whole thing is driven by a Michael Jackson sample of "Human Nature". As if that weren't enough, samples from Stanley Clarke and Mountain are layered in to perfection and the smooth, sweet rolling beat draws you in over and over and Nas' creamy delivery finishes it in style. Flip over for the instrumental and bask in the glow of it all. Classic.


Millie says: It’s had to resist a Nas record, especially when it’s a track as good as this. Heavenly samples, killer beats and the instrumental is just as on point as the OG.
