From rocking the first Summer Jam stage in 1994, to headlining Summer Jam 2014 this Sunday, Nas has been immortalized as a hip-hop legend.
His catalogue is filled with classic music, cemented by his first album “Illmatic” which has been considered by some critics as the best debut album ever.
However, did you know that Nas put out a demo tape of songs before "Illmatic"? The tape, which has since been dubbed the “Pre-Illmatic Demo” features production from Large Professor and collaborations with future hip-hop legends AZ, Biz Markie, and Kool G. Rap.
You probably won’t catch Nas rocking any of these historic tracks at Summer Jam, but he will be making a different kind of history as the only artist from the first Summer Jam in 1994 still performing.
Stream the “Pre-Illmatic Demo” here and check the track list below:
