DJ PREMIER on "Memory Lane (Sittin' in Da Park)"

With all the hype surrounding Nas' 20 year anniversary of his classic debut "Illmatic" DJ Premier takes the opportunity to reminisce about the creation of what is many listeners favorite joint on the LP - "Memory Lane (Sittin' in Da Park)". Preem talks about how he wasn't really feeling the beat he programmed at first but once Nas recorded his verses it all fell into place. I'm sure most of y'all have heard the alternative, darker version of the song, but in case you haven't I've uploaded it for y'all below as it is a true grimey banger. Last but not least, with all the "Illmatic" hype, I'd strongly like to recommend you to get a hold of Matthew Gasteier's book on the album from the 33 1/3 series which is absolutely brilliant reading for any fan of the LP.
