Nas x Cookin Soul – SoulMatic mixtape

A bit late, yeah. But since Cookin Soul deliver pretty solid quality here I guess the little mixtape just wasn’t quite ready in time. I don’t really dig the “Life’s a bitch” remix too much…maybe the original shouldn’t be touched in this case. The other tracks are mad decent tho!

“Illmatic was like, the highest level of ill.”

In 2014, 20 years after its release, Illmatic is still considered as arguably the best hip-hop album of all times.
Our intention when creating “Soulmatic” was not to just remix Illmatic album as such. Actually Soulmatic only contains 4 remixes from the original album… Also we have added a number of musical skits including comments, feelings and experiences from those who created the original album.
The “Cookin Soul” way to get the listener closer to that particular state of mind that led to the creation of such a classic.
