On "Loco-Motive,"  Nas once again reunites with his mentor Extra P. The two always had a certain magic together, and it's a great tragedy they haven't collaborated more than they already have. On the track itself, Nas admits to losing paper, but really it doesn't matter. God's son only needs one mic and his words ring through on here as much as they ever did, "So much to write and say, yo I don't know where to start/So I'll begin with the basics and flow from the heart." The song isn't too specific, it's mostly just Nas flowing in an almost stream of consciousness but he was always the kind of guy you could just hear flow forever. Even though they call out the "trapped in the '90s niggas," this is vintage Nasir.
