Item ID: 492017

'The World is Yours' is a perfect nugget of a single, weaving in the brashness of Scarface, the repetition of a snatch of T La Rock's early Def Jam gem 'It's Yours' and piano courtesy of Ahmad Jamal's 'I Love Music' from his own timeless 'The Awakening' album (1970). Presented for the first time on 7", the vocals of the album version and the instrumental on the flip provide the perfect opportunity to enjoy and compare the work of two masters at the top of their game. Pete Rock's seamless weaving of disparate samples into a compelling whole, the then (1994) little-known Nas' statement of intent. With a maturity beyond his tender years, Nas put himself straight at the top of the pile, this Queensbridge chronicle hinting at the ambition and greatness he harboured within himself.
