Criminal Slang

What was once a demo tape cut called, ‘Nas Will Prevail’, It Ain’t Hard to Tell was forever engrained into the collective memory of Hip-hop when it was featured on Nas’ debut album Illmatic. Years later (‘98) the vox sample, “Criminal Slang”, was featured as the subtitle & the hook of Big L’s Ebonics. which gained heavy rotation and posthumous recognition for the late Harlem rapper.
