New York underground veteran emcee Avatar the Articulate pays homage to Nas’s sophomore album It Was Written , in its entirety, with his self-produced remake, appropriately titled “It Was Bitten”. Despite the satirically seeming title, Avatar’s motivation for this release, accompanying his reverence to Nas, is to offer a new vantage point to the time-honored original, so that others can appreciate the concepts and issues addressed in his music. Sending this straight to Beezy for his thoughts. You know he loves him some “Illmatic”. Stream and download link below.
