Part 1 Or Part 2 of New York State of Mind gets recited word for word beginning to end by any hip hop head, and never gets skipped on the playlist when we in the park killing a case...dope, makes a fan wish he wrote it and a rapper striving to match or beat it.

Preem is a GENIUS!!! Nas and Preem make the perfect combo. They need to spark up another classic duo together like Gangstarr, respect to Guru of course.
