Sample from Guy’s “Goodbye Love”
It’s been a long time since Nas has released a truly great album. While I haven’t listened to it all the way through, the critics agree, Life is Good is Nas’s return to greatness. XXl gave the album a XXL, a rare feat that only accompanies truly great albums. I love a good vocal-sample, and while they’re frequently over used, this one is definitely on point. That’s what you get when you have a superstar like No I.D. producing your tracks. It can be hard for producers to find samples that aren’t played out, but “Goodbye Love” brings the perfect sound to this track. There’s just no way around it, No I.D. provided Nas with a jam that’s just begging for one of the greats to lay bars on it. I guess we all got what we wanted. Check out both the tracks below and let us know what you think.
