Nas - N.Y. State of Mind [Classic Rewind]

Let it be known that Crime Faces is not a music site. We don't want to hear your crappy demos, mixtapes, or opinions on what's happening in music. However, what we do have, is good taste, and we're assuming if you're here, you share in that. So every week, we're going to hit you with a classic track!

First up, Nas "N.Y. State of Mind" off his classic album Illmatic.

If this ain't a Crime Faves song, then who knows what is...
