Street Dreams (Remix)
Nas (feat. R. Kelly)
Street Dreams (Remix)

Since I was recently talking about MCs that were trying to emulate Nas, let’s talk about the real thing, shall we? Nas never achieved the widespread public adoration that has been bestowed upon the likes of contemporaries like Jay-Z, Wu-Tang Clan, and The Notorious B.I.G. but if it came down to it, I might put Nas above them all. He has a laid back flow that is just untouchable. His lyrical mastery and influence has stretched into the works of artists like Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, and J. Cole just to name a few.

Street Dreams” was a solid single from his second album, It Was Written. Today, I’m here to talk about the remix of that song. The track was produced by The Trackmasters, producers of other such hits of the era like Foxy Brown’s “I’ll Be,” Will Smith’s “Men in Black,” and Nas’ own “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That).” You can hear the smooth production stylings of those tracks in this one; The Trackmasters took care to sample only the best in classic R&B: “Choosey Lover” by The Isley Brothers. R. Kelly is featured and brings his unique flavor to the song by singing the hook which is an interpolation of “Choosey Lover” and Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology).”

This version of the song was mainly publicized using a flashy Hype Williams music video which is excellent. But if you really want to see something special/crazy, check out Nas performing this track on Nickelodeon’s All That. It’s a trip.

What do you see when you look in the mirror? Stand closer, look harder, see clearer.
The pain those eyes have seen, aren’t what defines you. The imagination, the ambition, the love you’ve felt, those are the things that do.
The face staring back at you, was created by a divine being. You are royalty, a queen, a king. Do you see what I’m seeing?
Sometimes you feel worthless, but trust me, you’re WORTH it. Sweetheart, you are perfect, God gave you a purpose.
Be brave. Stay focused. You can conquer every mile. Stand tall. Walk forward…and don’t forget to Smile.
