DJ Green Lantern takes a Nas track off 2008’s “The N*gger Tape” and gives it a fresh rework.
Fans have been getting quite a bit of Nas music lately. Perhaps inspired by God’s Son posthumous connection with JayLib, “The Sickness,” DJ Green Lantern — who has been reaching into his vaults lately — returns with the remastered version of “Cops Keep Firing,” originally found on 2008’s The N****r Tape.
For the mixtape, Nas game me a bunch of vocals from songs he wasn’t gonna use and I made new songs with those. “Cops Keep Firing” originally started as an extra verse he didn’t use on “Be A N*&^ Too.” I made a new beat, added the scratch hook and when he heard it he did a new second verse too it. Up until now it’s only been available on that mixtape (with shout outs, drops, etc). Here it is, CDQ and re-mastered for heavy knock in your Beats be Dre’s.
