Complex says: As hip-hop fans, we've grown to appreciate the subtle ironies that come with music being built around samples. Case in point: Nas making a song about the last place you'd ever want to be at (a shootout) and sampling "I Wish You Here." Though, to be fair, Nas' descriptions of the street life are so vivid we kinda felt like we were there.
