.The remix “was after the alburn had beenout,” Tip recalls.“He wanted me to do another song on thealbum I think, but mine was one of the last songs on therecord…He also was fixated on having it just kind of be liketen songs.Like he just wanted it straight up and down.So hewanted me to do a remix.”As for the reworked lyrics, the move was made on the fly.“Ithink that was more of just like an inspiration.” Nas’sreconfigured lyrics are most apparent in the second verse,whichissprinkledwithreligiousreferencesandanti-establishment statements.Yet he adds little touches inother places (he now appears to prefer Air Nikes to SuedeTimbs) and somewhat reworks the chorus to reflect the darkerbeat that Tip produces.And dark it is.Atmospheric and soulful, Tip nearly channelsPortishead the same year the trip-hop group released theirdebut Dummy.With only a wobbly trumpet to lighten themood, the beat here sounds like shimmering water receivingsmall drops of blood, punched home by snares that rattle andshake.To further distance the track from the original, Tipadds some backing vocals, like “get money” and thehead-nodding “la la la la”s that lace the choruses.The endresult is almost the exact opposite of the original’s110inspirational tone: the world most definitely is not yours.Yet remarkably, the lyrics fit perfectly over this pitch-blackstatement, mostly due to Nas’s natural smoothness, almost therapping equivalent of Portishead’s Beth Gibbons’s sultryvocals.“The first one that Pete did was so crazy, you don’t try to topit, you just try to complement it,” Tip says.“That’s the way Iview remixes.It’s more of you have to complement whateverit is, rather than try to outdo it, shit like that.I just wanted to just fuse with what was there.”Pete agrees.“I thought it was dope, I loved it,” he says ofTip’s offering.“It surprised me because the style was PeteRockish,” referring not just to the remix’s soulful roots, but toits use of space and attention to detail.“So that’s dope.Theinspiration comes right out.It speaks for itself.”The big question that lingers here is the close relative of theconstant mystery among hip hop heads as to why Nas hasn’tmade the much-talked-about full-length with DJ Premier,with whom he has had such consistently classic results.Considering the high quality and lasting success of “TheWorld Is Yours,” why did Nas not enlist Pete for futureprojects? Pete’s answer is clearminded, if unsatisfying for theaverage fan.“We didn’t get to spend a whole lot of timetogether.We didn’t get to really know each other like weshould have due to outside forces.Without that, nothing goodcould come out of it.I don’t care how hot you are, I don’tcare how hot of a producer you are or how hot of an artist; ifyou don’t have that bond, nothing can really work betweenyou and that person.”111Halftime“That bassline.The muffled bassline, the crack of thathighhat, ‘check me out y’all, Nasty Nas in your area,’” Serchsays of what made “Halftime,” the first released Illmatic cut,so great.“It was all of that, just him sounding so young andhungry.” Though “It Ain’t Hard to Tell” was the first trackNas worked on that eventually wound up on the record, Serchand Nas felt that “Halftime” would be a great introduction toNas’s solo career.“We thought it was a great way for Nas tojust get out there.Because there was a huge buzz in NewYork, but you know how that goes, you know, New York isso insulated, you feel like it’s the whole world.But the rest ofthe world needed to know about him.And I’ve heard fromcountless people that ‘Halftime’ really was what openedpeople’s eyes to Nas and got them ready for what was aboutto come.”As mentioned earlier, “Halftime” was featured on theZebrahead soundtrack and released as a single.It’s inclusion on Illmatic was always intended, though, and sequentially, it’s the first track to feature the producer most important tothe creation of Illmatic, Large Professor.In his interview with Funkmaster Flex from 2006, Nas told the story of how thetwo first recorded a record.Back then there could be a dude with a hot record—but hestill go to your high school.And Large Professor had a songcalled “Think’ [with Main Source]…I had to go in the studioso I had at least three dudes that knew how to make beatswith me.And on the way, we picked up Large Professor fromhis high school.Now I didn’t even know homie, I just knew112he had a cool song [ Pobierz całość w formacie PDF ]
