NaS - Street Disciple: A Throwback Hip-Hop Treat from 1999/2000 (Free Download)


Street Disciple not to be confused with Street's Disciple the Double CD released by NaS in 2004.  Street Disciple is a CD that my friend Deebo and I created in 2000 from tracks that were supposed to be release by NaS on his CDs I am and Nastradamus but didn't make it on the albums due to bootlegging.

Well Deebo and I felt like these were quality tracks and they deserved an album, so we created Street Disciple, NaS released an album called "Lost Tapes" 2 years later, which much like our album was filled with previously unreleased tracks and was an instant classic (like ours).

The name Street Disciple came from the verse NaS spit on the Main Source song "Live At the BBQ".

"Street's disciple my raps are trifle, I shoot slugs from my brain just like a rifle"

After coming up with the title, the next step was to pick the tracks that make the album then order them so that it felt like an actual album and not just a compilation of tracks.  We even had to name a few tracks that were untitled when we got them.  Once that was done, it was about designing a Nas-esque CD cover, but of course at that point all of his covers were just up close pictures of him.  So we released the first non-head shot NaS cd and gave the people a picture of him in the streets on the front and other images of him to show various personalities on the inside, cd label, and back. And like that a classic was created.
