Take It in Blood

Take It in Blood

Nas

This song was on Nas' sophomore album It Was Written

It features a sample of “Mixed up Moods and Attitudes” by the 70’s R&B Group The Fantastic Four and it also samples Kool Keith’s verse from “Ease Back” by the Ultramagnetic MCs

Some people argue that this song really isn’t about anything and just sounds good but if you do the research you’ll see that this is one of the most complex songs Nas has ever recorded. Illmatic was definitely a classic but it didn’t get the record sales it deserved and you can feel his hunger. He is literally rapping for his life
