There was a time when it was probably impossible to list more than a handful of rappers who had never rhymed over a James Brown beat, seeing as how he is one of the most sampled artists ever. But as time waged on it became less common, so it was a mild surprise to discover that someone could freak a souped-up JB-based concoction in 2002 like it was a brand new bag. But Nas did it. Getting in the spirit, Nasir Jones kicks a funky tale that pays tribute to the old-school cats. And yes, he does get down.
