Nas has had his share of sharp-tongued guest verses over the past few months, but one appearance that perhaps deserves a bit more shine is his drop on “Nothing to Lose,” a track off the recent K’naan EP, More Beautiful Than Silence. On the track, the Queensbridge legend and the Somali-Canadian MC find common ground in their stories of transcending the street life that had them caught up in their younger days.
Hoping to give the song another run, Ohioan triple threat Rashad was called on to don his producer cap for the remix. On the “Nothing to Lose (Elev8tor Remix),” he does us all a favor by doing away with the chorus from the original, infuses the record with his characteristically full-sounding instrumentation and ends up creating a nice contrast to the stripped-down first version. Click play to check out Rashad’s take on the song. What have you got to lose?
