View Full Version : Reign Beat

09-06-2003, 02:17 AM
Did yall know that the beat from reign was used by Nas before Ja-Rule used it from reign?
The moment the beat started the first time i played reign I knew it was from Nas.

I know what song it is.
Can anyone here figure it out? if no one knows in a few days i will post the answer.

i didnt know Nas had sampled the beat as well whats his track called?

Nas used it in a song called "New World" which is track 13 on the Nastradamus album. I didn't know anybody else had used it.

Also Blu Cantrell and Seans new track "Breath" has the beat from Dr Dre, Eminem and Xzibits - "Whats the Difference"

that blu cantrell song is horrible i hate it

the singing is terrible and especially over that instrumental.

sean pauls chorus works but blu is definatley OUT

Yea i dont really feel for that song neither.
Hey Spoonie do you like Andre?
I dont mind his beats and his songs with Snoop and Pac. His stuff with Feminem is shit ass.

Yeah "breath" is shit song. Dre is dope, I have "the chronic" and "chronic 2001" also I have some of his early shit with N.W.A. In my opinion Dre makes the best beats in the industry. It seems like any track he mixes is a hit. I know you used to be a Dre fan Spoonz, has this Murder I.N.C/50 Cent beef changed your opinion?

nah Dr Dre is awesome. although he has dropped lyrics against ja, it doesnt bother me becuase he is a good artist. the 50 thing is restricted to 50 and g-unit

I heard that Dr. Dre / Arista Records told her to make the video. Dr. Dre asked them if they wanted to use his beat. Also, on the DVD on Bittersweet, she mentions someting about what I just said.
